Nvidia Shield Tablet Review
Handheld Gaming Console
Take your gaming anywhere with NVIDIA SHIELD™, the world’s first gaming portable for open platforms, designed for untethered gameplay. Here’ more about Nvidia Shield tablet, the best gaming tablet in town.
The best answer to the question, “why not have both?,” might come from Nvidia in the form of the Shield Tablet. Priced at $300, the company took the best attributes from the original Shield handheld gaming console (now rebranded as the Shield Portable) and the EVGA Tegra Note 7 and created a super gadget capable of delivering blistering performance and long battery life with a gorgeous 8-inch full HD display.
More than that, Nvidia has created a true gaming tablet that, combined with the $60 Shield Wireless Controller, can play both Android and PC games as well as livestream the fun to Twitch. Still, when you add the slate, controller and $30 stand cover, you’ll pay close to the price of a PS4 or Xbox One. Is the Shield worth the scratch?

It was love at first touch. The Shield Tablet’s rear panel is swathed in a black, luxurious soft touch finish that’s as nice to look at as it is to caress. A chrome-ringed 5-megapixel camera is located in the top right corner while the silver-tipped stylus rests in its plastic-lined holder at the top left corner. The glossy black Shield lettering in the center of the panel adds some nice shine and a bit of visual and textural contrast.
Turning the tablet around to the front reveals the 8-inch display surrounded by thick black bezels. Twin speakers flank the screen, and Nvidia placed another 5-MP camera in the middle of the left speaker housing.
