Nvidia shield – the best hardware in Android Gaming .
Anybody and everybody who has a knack of keeping themselves updated with the latest technology that comes into the market has been praising about Nvidia Shield. For some it’s the out of the world experience and for some it is the state of the art Android hardware. The names given to this handheld console are many but all are unanimous about one thing – they didn’t expect something like this could really exist and it would be so effective. In terms of ergonomics, response and wonderfully built controller, this one surely is a winner all the way.
Let’s get into some details now –

Nvidia comes with 38 Whr built in Li-Ion batteries. 5-10 hours of gaming is promised by Nvidia and you can also enjoy HD video playback for 24 hours. The experts are little concerned about the weight because a smartphones battery which are generally considered to be strong enough dries up very easily while playing 3D games and here a maximum of 10 hours is promised by the maker.
The device lives up to the expectation and performs as it promises. You have 2 joysticks, a D-pad, left/right bumpers, ABXY buttons, start / back / home / volume buttons, left / right analog triggers and a multi function NVIDIA / Power button.
It is the display which the Nvidia calls retinal. The project shield is a 5 inch display which comes with 1280 X 720 HD resolution. You are provided with 294 ppi pixel density which is better than most of its contemporaries or you can say competitors. Due to the Tegra 4’s direct touch technology, the touch response is far better than any other devices. The only thing is that it would have been better if the bezel didn’t take up so much space.
The speakers are custom designed and the controller’s deep body adds up to the advantage. For better bass response there are two tuned ports. The company has gone to the extent of comparing the sound to any high end laptops. They say that Shield provides much better sound quality.
