Nvidia Shield Tablet Android 5.0 Lollipop Review

Final Thoughts


Overall, the Shield Tablet has seen some incredible upgrades from Android 5.0 Lollipop, as well as a few tweaks and adjustments from Nvidia in their update, which brings the Shield up to spec 2.0.

We’ve got a much more fluid UI that brings a more practical and functional experience that is pleasing to the eye. We’ve got great improvements to the notifications system. There are updated versions of Dabbler, Gmail, Calendar and more. The list goes on and on.

My opinion of the Shield Tablet from my original review remains true, I still love this device and it’s certainly my go-to option for mobile gaming. The added bonus of course being that I can stream games from my Nvidia powered PC to the Shield Tablet, and soon I’ll even be able to stream games from the GRID servers. I can run mobile games incredibly well with PC/Console quality graphics and I can even hook it up to my TV and use it like a console if I wanted to! If you want a versatile mobile gaming device, there really isn’t anything else that comes close in comparison.

This is every bit a great Android tablet and with Android 5.0 it is better than ever. It’s packed full of features and it demonstrates Nvidia and Google’s commitment to mobile gaming platforms. The new OS is a little rough around the edges in some places, but that’s to be expected with an X.0.0 release. Expect revisions and improvements to be steadily released in the near future as more users get their hands on it and work out any sneaky bugs.

There are plenty more features to the Shield Tablet, and we’ve got every intention of putting them through their paces, so stay tuned for more updates in the near future.
