NVIDIA Shield Tablet review

85
NVIDIA Shield Tablet and Wireless Controller

If you're willing to go all-in with some extra accessory purchases, you can have one of the most flexible and capable Android tablets out there today

NVIDIA has won over many consumers' hearts and minds in the desktop computer space with its high-performance graphics cards, and is looking (once again) to parlay that success into the consumer electronic space with the Shield Tablet. Drawing on intense brand recognition within the gamer community, NVIDIA wants to sell a device that's a great overall tablet, but with gaming features unmatched by the competition.

It's fighting an uphill battle outside of the most hardcore of potential gaming buyers, though. General consumers definitely don't think of NVIDIA when it comes to making their next tablet purchase, and even those who know the name may already have brand allegiances with Apple, Samsung, LG or Google when it comes to tablets.

Luckily NVIDIA has more than just brand recognition to work with. Read on as we break down the merits of NVIDIA's Shield device, the Tegra K1-powered Shield Tablet.

Lenovo Yoga Tab 10 HD+ review

16

Lenovo's Yoga Tab proves that tablets haven't reached their ultimate form factor just yet.

For as fast, powerful and portable as they've become, tablets haven't necessarily been on the cutting edge of hardware innovation. In terms of developing fresh, exciting form factors and features, manufacturers typically focus on smartphones with which to step outside of the box. With tablets, on the other hand, they have found their comfort zone – outside of Samsung's push for more and more size options and software features, we haven't really seen that much innovation, at least in terms of hardware, since Android tablets entered the market a few years ago.

Enter the Lenovo Yoga Tab, a device that bucks that trend. Lenovo first introduced the Yoga Tab back in 2013 and since then it has undergone a few revisions before landing at the latest iteration, the Yoga Tab 10 HD+.

Yoga Tabs are known for what Lenovo calls their "Multimode Design" – in short, rather than housing its battery behind the display, the Yoga Tab features a battery cylinder and kickstand. This not only keeps the Yoga Tab remarkably thin, but it also allows it to take on various forms, from "Stand" for watching movies and video to "Tilt" for typing and gaming.

I spent a month with the Yoga Tab 10 HD+ and found that a tablet doesn't have to be jam packed with bells and whistles and top of the line specs to be truly innovative.
