  • Game library Not a tome of Shield optimized games, but so many games on the android market take advantage of game controllers so they will work just fine with the Shield so-so
  • Graphics No comments great!
  • Battery life No comments great!
  • Portability (size / weight) No comments good
  • Durability No comments great!
Detailed review
It is crazy when people are all up in arms about the price. O no it is $299, but the PS vita and the PS 4 is what ever price. They can sell the products at loss because they receive money with every game purchas. Nvidia as far as I know does not. all of the games are on the Google play store. You are basically purchasing a badass tablet. I find myself using this exclusively for entertainment. I rarely use my tablet now. I watch Netflix, Amazon prime video content, emulators, basically anything you can get on the Google play store. I like that I can just put it down and watch it and I don't need to prop it up. The battery life is amazing. If you consider the specs and what it can do out of the box compared to other tablets it is amazing. Remember it is a full fledged android device.
