5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Nvidia is one of the superior tablet manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and Nvidia also has good ratings for its Tegra K1 processor tablet computers.

Four Processor Coress

The Shield Tablet is a four processor cores tablet computer. Most of the other tablet computers of a similar age and spec to the Shield Tablet only have between two and three processor coress.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 4 processor cores tablets currently available including the Xiaomi Mi Pad[plb_2433811_price] which has better reviews.

4 Bluetooth Version

This tablet computer supports a 4.0 LE bluetooth version, which is the most commonly supported bluetooth version on similar spec tablets that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 Pixels Display Resolution

The Nvidia Shield Tablet has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. That's over two times the display resolution of the most common display resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. Across all tablets that were released around the same time as the Shield Tablet the best display resolution is 3840 x 2560 pixels and the worst is 480 x 272 pixels.

Chart Edit

Light

With a weight of only 390 grams, the Shield Tablet is one of the lighter tablets that came out more than two years ago amongst comparable spec tablets of this age. Across all the tablet computers of a comparable age and type to the Shield Tablet the weights range from 360g to 440g.

6 Reasons Against

Not 4G

Like most of the other tablets of a similar type and age to the Shield Tablet, the Shield Tablet is not 4G.

If you want a tablet computer that is 4G then you might also want to look at the Google Nexus 9[plb_3140250_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 3G

Most similar spec tablets that were launched more than two years ago are not 3G. The Nvidia Shield Tablet is no exception to this as it too is not 3G.

Tablet computers which are 3G that might also be worth looking at include the Google Nexus 9[plb_3140250_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Display Diagonal

The Shield Tablet has a fairly small display diagonal (only 8 inches) compared to most of the other tablet computers of a comparable age and type to the Shield Tablet. Across all the Tegra K1 processor tablet computers that are a comparable age to the Shield Tablet the display diagonals range from 7.9" to 8.9", and the average display diagonal is 8.6".

If this tablet display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Nexus 9[pl_2591409_price] (8.9"), the Nexus 9[pl_2591419_price] (8.9"), or the Nexus 9[pl_2591421_price] (8.9") all from HTC.

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

Tablet computers of this age and spec have internal storage capacitys of between 16GB and 64GB. The Shield Tablet has one of the smaller internal storage capacitys (only 16 gigabytes) amongst Tegra K1 processor tablet computers of this age.

If you would prefer a tablet with a larger internal storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Nexus 9[pl_2591409_price] (32GB), or the Nexus 9[pl_2591421_price] (32GB) both from HTC.

Quite Thick

Tegra K1 processor tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Shield Tablet have depths of between 7.9mm and 9.2mm, and the average depth is 8.3mm. With a depth of 9.2 millimeters, the Nvidia Shield Tablet has one of the thicker depths amongst tablet computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Processor Frequency

The average processor frequency of Tegra K1 processor tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the Shield Tablet is 2.3GHz, and the processor frequencys range from 2.2GHz to 2.3GHz. The Nvidia Shield Tablet has a fairly slow processor frequency (only 2.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other Tegra K1 processor tablet computers that are a similar age to the Shield Tablet.

We compared all the other 2.2GHz processor clock speed tablet computers to this tablet and we think the Xiaomi Mi Pad[plb_2433811_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Tablet computers with a faster processor frequency that might also be worth considering include the Nexus 9[pl_2591409_price] (2.3GHz), the Nexus 9[pl_2591419_price] (2.3GHz), or the Nexus 9[pl_2591421_price] (2.3GHz) all from HTC.
