NVIDIA Shield Android TV review: The best you can get

44
NVIDIA Shield Android TV

The Android TV box from a gaming powerhouse isn't just about gaming — it's an entertainment hub.

The original NVIDIA Shield Android TV was released in May 2015, and even as we counted down the days to 2017 it still stood as the go-to top-end Android TV box. So when NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang stood on stage at CES 2017 to release the new Shield Android TV, it wasn't surprising to see that not all that much had changed.

Acknowledging that the Tegra X1 inside the Shield Android TV was more than powerful enough, the internal specs remained identical for the new version. But NVIDIA made some changes that mattered to a lot of people: the box is nearly half the size, it now includes a remote, and the software has been upgraded to Android 7.0 with a few new features. At the same time, NVIDIA completely redesigned its Shield Controller, and has the whole system ready for the launch of Google Assistant on Android TV later this year.

With these tweaks, the price remains the same: $199, including accessories. Over 18 months after it launched the box that has carried the Android TV market, does NVIDIA still have a leader on its hands? We answer that question in here, in our complete review of the new Shield Android TV.

What do you want your phone to do that it can't?

224

Phones today are incredibly powerful. They're supercomputers in our pockets. But that doesn't mean they do everything — and there's plenty people want, realistic or otherwise.

The weeks after CES are a strange amalgam of far-in-the-future prognosticating about the future of technology in its myriad form factors and the beginning of the year's less ambitious, commercially available products.

We look to the big launches of the year, like the LG G6 and Galaxy S8, to set the trends for the rest of the industry.

We've already seen one major phone launch in the HTC U Ultra, and while the gleaming, shimmering expanse of its "liquid surface" exterior is surely impressive, it's by no means original. From an industrial design perspective, the phone that impressed us most last year, the Xiaomi Mi Mix, isn't even coming to North America; and the niche technology integrations we saw at CES — the Spectrometer Smartphone, for example — feels like it's solving a problem no one really has.

How to disable 'power-intensive app found' notification on the Huawei Mate 9

4

How do I turn off that annoying "power-intensive apps" notification on EMUI 5.0?

One of the Huawei Mate 9's charms is its 4000mAh battery, which allows the phone to last more than one day on a charge. But the reason for the phone's long uptime isn't all due to the battery size itself; Huawei has optimized EMUI 5.0, based on Android 7.0 Nougat, to notify the user (you) of apps that use an excessive amount of battery in the background.

Samsung heir could be put behind bars in South Korean bribery scandal

14

The heir to Samsung's empire is embroiled in a bribery scandal.

South Korea's prosecutor is seeking a warrant to arrest Samsung Group's Jay Y. Lee over bribery and embezzlement allegations. The 48-year-old executive is poised to take over control of Samsung's business empire from his father, Lee Kun-hee. Jay Y. Lee is accused of bribing Choi Soon-sil, an aide to South Korean president Park Geun-hye, in order to secure political backing for the $8 billion merger of Samsung C&T Corp and Cheil Industries Inc.

The exec is said to have paid up to $36.4 million (43 billion won) in bribes, with the prosecutor stating that the profits were split between Choi and president Park. As news of the political involvement broke last year, the South Korean parliament moved to impeach the president. The country's special prosecutor is now going after Samsung's heir, and with the company accounting for 17% of Korea's economy, the move will have far-reaching consequences:

The special prosecutors' office, in making this decision to seek an arrest warrant, determined that while the country's economic conditions are important, upholding justice takes precedence.

Lenovo K6 Power vs. Redmi 3S Prime: Picking the best entry-level phone in India

3
Lenovo K6 Power vs. Redmi 3S Prime

There isn't a whole lot that separates two of the best entry-level phones available today.

The Lenovo K6 Power and Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime are two of the most sought-after devices in the entry-level segment right now. Both are sold for under ₹10,000, and offer compelling hardware for the asking price.

Although there are hundreds of phones available in this space, most aren't worth your time as they miss out on basic hardware features or run outdated software. That isn't the case with the K6 Power or the Redmi 3S Prime. If you're in the market for an entry-level handset and are unsure as to which one to get, read on.

Hardware

Lenovo K6 Power vs. Redmi 3S Prime

The K6 Power and Redmi 3S Prime share a lot of similarities — both in terms of the design and the internal hardware. Both phones sport a metallic chassis and feature a fingerprint sensor at the back. They are also powered by the Snapdragon 430 SoC, offer a 5-inch display, 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage.

Both have 13MP rear cameras, and the Redmi 3S Prime has a slender lead when it comes to battery capacity — 4100mAh versus 4000mAh for the K6 Power. However, the K6 Power has a 5.0-inch Full HD panel, whereas the Redmi 3S sports a 5.0-inch 720p display.

There are three subtle differences when it comes to the design: the camera isn't aligned with the fingerprint sensor on the Redmi 3S Prime, and the K6 Power has the charging port at the top. The K6 Power's notification LED is at the top, whereas the Redmi 3S Prime has it at the bottom of the display. Otherwise, you're looking at two near-identical phones. They even come in the same color options: silver, dark grey, and gold.

Both phones have capable fingerprint sensors, and the overall fit and finish is remarkable given the price segment they're targeting. You won't have any issues using either phone one-handed thanks to the compact size, but the Redmi 3S edges slightly ahead thanks to its thinner 8.5mm frame over the 9.3mm profile of the K6 Power.

The Redmi 3S Prime has an added feature in the form of an IR blaster. Xiaomi is one of very few vendors that still offers the feature, and when paired to the excellent Mi Remote, it lets you control TVs, home audio systems, air conditioners, and set-top boxes of all major brands sold in the country.

Category Lenovo K6 Power Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime Operating System Vibe Pure UI based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Display 5-inch 1080p (1920x1080) IPS LCD panel

The display on the K6 Power is great, offering saturated colors and excellent viewing angles. There isn't a lot of customizability when it comes to tweaking the color settings, and in that regard, the Redmi 3S Prime wins out. The panel on the Redmi 3S is also quite decent in spite of it sporting a lesser resolution, but you get more options. MIUI lets you alter the color temperature, and there's a built-in blue light filter.

The K6 Power has a denser display, and great stereo speakers.

On the audio side of things, the K6 Power takes the lead thanks to its excellent stereo speakers. Although they're located at the back, they still manage to produce enough sound to fill a small room. The Redmi 3S also has a speaker located at the back, and while it's decent, it doesn't get as loud as the K6 Power. If your main use case involves watching a lot of videos, then the K6 Power is the better device thanks to the stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos tweaks.

When it comes to everyday usage, you're not going to see any difference between two phones seeing as how they run the same internal hardware. Both phones run lag-free, and the 3GB of RAM makes a lot of difference when it comes to multitasking. While they handle tasks like browsing and social media with aplomb, they aren't designed to tackle intensive video games. You can still play most major titles, but you'll see the occasional stutter.

Battery life

Lenovo K6 Power vs. Redmi 3S Prime

Battery life is increasingly becoming the primary consideration when buying a new phone in India. With a majority of people relying on their phones as the sole gateway to the internet, it isn't hard to see why. That's why manufacturers have also started focusing on improving battery life by adding larger batteries. The same holds true for both the K6 Power and the Redmi 3S Prime. If you want great battery life, these are the phones to consider.

The K6 Power has a 4000mAh battery that ensures the phone lasts a day even if you stream movies and videos all day. With medium usage, the battery life goes up to two days without breaking a sweat. Then there's the Redmi 3S Prime, arguably the best phone to get if all you want is stellar battery life. Thanks to its 4100mAh battery, the phone lasts two days at a minimum. You'll easily be able to eke out seven or eight hours of screen-on-time consistently.

K6 Power Vibe UI

Software

The software is where things get interesting for both phones. While there isn't a lot to differentiate the phones when it comes to the hardware, they offer vastly varying software experiences. Lenovo has tried to cut back on overt customization with its Vibe UI skin, and as a result its interface is cleaner and less cluttered. Meanwhile, the Redmi 3S Prime runs MIUI 8, which is one of the most feature-rich ROMs available today.

Lenovo's Vibe UI is uncluttered, whereas MIUI 8 doubles down on features.

MIUI lets you customize every facet of the interface, but at times it does feel bloated. At least with MIUI 8, Xiaomi fixed several issues with memory management (it isn't as aggressive now), and the overall design has picked up much-needed flair in the form of solid colors interspersed throughout the UI. But there are other issues. There isn't an app drawer — Vibe UI offers it — and you're going to need a manual to navigate the settings. MIUI is catered to power users, and as such it has a learning curve.

MIUI 8 Redmi 3S Prime

There are a few features that are common on both phones, such as dual apps — through which you can two two instances of the same app — and the ability to lock apps with a password. There are minor changes in the implementation, but the overall functionality is the same.

That said, neither handset is great at receiving software updates. In January 2017, the K6 Power is still on the June security patch, while the Redmi 3S is on the August update. There's no mention of when the Nougat update will be available, but it doesn't look like it will be rolling out soon.

Camera

Lenovo K6 Power vs. Redmi 3S Prime

One of the main drawbacks in budget phones available today is camera quality. Essentially, photos taken from either the Redmi 3S or the K6 Power are adequate for sharing on social platforms — which should be more than enough for a majority of the userbase interested in either handset. But to get a decent photo, you'll have to put in some work. Taking great images effortlessly is still limited to the likes of the Pixel and the S7 edge.

The Redmi 3S Prime has the better camera, but only marginally.

Neither handset is great at dialing in on a subject quickly, but the Redmi 3S takes longer. You get the ability to toggle HDR on the Redmi 3S, and doing so leads to better detail in the final photos. However, it takes more effort to shoot in HDR. Images from the Redmi 3S had more true-to-life colors, and there's more detail as well. That said, both phones struggled to take decent shots in low-light conditions.

The K6 Power's camera app is easier to use, and it offers a variety of shooting modes, including a manual mode that lets you tweak the white balance, exposure, and ISO settings. The Redmi 3S also has a feature-rich camera, and the ability to select between various scenes. It also has a Beautify filter, which as the name suggests removes blemishes and generally improves the quality of your portraits.

Which should you buy? It's up to you

Lenovo K6 Power vs. Redmi 3S Prime

It's incredibly hard to pick a winner between the two handsets. The denser panel on the K6 Power makes for a great multimedia experience — especially when coupled with the stereo speakers. The displays on both phones are great, but if you're primarily looking to consume multimedia, the K6 Power edges the Redmi 3S Prime out.

See at Flipkart

However, if battery life is your main consideration, then the Redmi 3S Prime is the phone to get. In all the phones I used last year, there wasn't one that came close to the battery life of the Redmi 3S Prime. MIUI's aggressive memory management combined with a huge battery means you'll easily get two days of battery even if you're a heavy user.

See at Flipkart

Both phones see a huge demand, so you'll have to wait until the next flash sale to buy either one. Irrespective of whatever phone you pick up, you're getting great value for your money.

Lenovo's excellent Z2 Plus gets a price cut in India, now available for just ₹14,999

7

One of the best phones in this segment is now more affordable.

The Lenovo Z2 Plus is one of the best phones you can get for under ₹20,000 in India. The phone offers incredible value for money in the form of a 5-inch Full HD display, 2.15GHz Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage, 13MP ISOCELL camera, 8MP front camera, USB-C, and a 3500mAh battery.

Starting today, Lenovo is slashing the price of the Z2 Plus by ₹3,000 for the base variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage, making it available for just ₹14,999.

To put things into context, that's just ₹1,000 more than what the Moto G4 Plus is currently retailing for on Amazon. Lenovo is also discounting the variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage by ₹2,500, bringing it down to ₹17,499.

Chromecast vs. Chromecast Ultra: Which should you buy?

66

If you're looking to buy a Chromecast, here's what you need to know.

Google unveiled the new Chromecast Ultra at its October 2016 event in San Francisco, and while it doubles the price of the original Chromecast at $69, it packs quite a punch when it comes to its capabilities. It's still the small, easy to use, and affordable media streamer that people love, only designed for folks who want all the high-end features when they stream their media.

That means it might be one of those products that offer things you won't need or can't use, and the "regular" Chromecast may be a better fit. Here's everything you need to know to pick the right Chromecast for you.

What exactly is a Chromecast?

A Chromecast is a small device that plugs into an open HDMI port on your TV, A/V receiver, or any other display that can playback video and audio. There is a Chromecast that's built for audio only, too, if that's what you're looking for and it makes building a great whole-house audio system easy.

Once in place you use an app for your phone (Android and iOS only) or through Google Chrome to set it up, give it a name, and get it ready to receive a movie or TV show or anything else you want to see on a bigger screen. To send the media there, you first open it on your phone or in Google Chrome and "cast" it to the Chromecast receiver. Your stream will start playing on your TV and you're free to do other things on your phone or in Chrome while it plays.

The features and price make a Chromecast the best way to stream your media.

A Chromecast can stream local content like pictures or video you took yourself, but when you're streaming from an online source like Netflix, it doesn't go through your phone. Instead, it makes a connection with the source and streams directly, saving battery and not using your phone's network bandwidth. You can still use your phone or Chrome to control the stream and do things like pause playback or change volume, but the actual transmission from Netflix (in our example) goes to the Chromecast. Think of your phone as the remote.

There are hundreds of apps in Google Play or the App Store that are Chromecast-enabled, and we see more and more every day. The Chromecast is simple to set up and use, is very inexpensive, and does a great job, This is why it's one of Google's best selling products, and why we think it's the best way to stream the media you enjoy watching.

The "regular" Chromecast

This $35 HDMI puck (it's often on sale, too) is the basic media streamer many of us want. It handles 1080p video streams really well, is very small and can be powered by your TV if you have a suitably powered USB port on the back. It supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi at both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz and is powered with a Micro-USB cable connected to a 5V/1A power source. If your TV can't provide the power, there is an adapter included along with a 1.75-meter cable.

If you like, you can buy an ethernet adapter built for the Chromecast instead of using Wi-Fi. It replaces the power cord and has a standard RJ-45 socket (the one that looks like a great big telephone plug) where you plug in a 10/100 ethernet cable. The power cord on the ethernet adapter is 2-meters long to make sure you can position it where you need it. Everything else works the same — you cast from your phone or the Chrome browser and watch the streaming media on your TV — but you're using a faster and more stable network connection.

  • If you don't have a 4K television or won't be streaming any 4K content, the Chromecast is for you.

See the Chromecast at Google See the Chromecast Ethernet Adapter at Google

The Chromecast Ultra

The Chromecast Ultra offers a step up from the regular version. When provided with a suitable broadband connection, it can stream 4K Ultra HD streams and HDR content. The hardware inside the Chromecast Ultra is fast and powerful enough to do things on the fly without a lot of buffering or skipping. It's more expensive at $69 but can stream the highest quality content with ease.

Of course, to stream UHD HDR content you need a fast network. The Chromecast Ultra connects to 802.11ac 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi with a 1x2 SIMO (Single Input Multi Output) antenna for fast network speeds and low latency. It also comes standard with an ethernet port built into the power supply if you want to plug it into a wired network switch instead of using Wi-Fi.

  • If you have a TV that has a 4K display or can playback HDR content and want to stream media at UHD, the Chromecast Ultra is for you.

See the Chromecast Ultra at Google

Of course either Chromecast will work to stream 1080p media or with a 4K display. To stream UHD HDR media you need the Ultra, but if what you're streaming isn't in 4K or you just don't have the network speed to stream at that quality, the "regular" Chromecast will still work. Also, if you plan on upgrading to a newer TV or monitor that will display UHD HDR content you can buy a Chromecast Ultra and use it for HD streaming on your current display.

No matter which Chromecast you choose you'll enjoy great movies and shows from hundreds of apps, and you won't have to figure out any cryptic software or network settings to get started.

From the Editor's Desk: Flagship spotting

24
HMS Vanguard, which is not a phone

Have you heard? There's a new Android flagship!

This industry has no shortage of irksome buzzwords (see: "iPhone killer," "phablet," "innovation" — I could go on.) But one that's been almost entirely stripped of all meaning is the term "flagship." It used to be that a flagship — the very best product in a series, intended to bear the standard of a particular brand — was easy to define. Then, with multiple high-end phone releases every year from the big brands, things became murkier.

With numerous product lines — like the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines, and LG's G and V series — intersecting, and each one laying claim to the "flagship" title, confusion can quickly set in. The crown is either shared between multiple products, or rapidly passed along the line in a matter of months. (And the less said of the "mid-range flagship," or the "entry-level flagship," the better.)

NVIDIA shows us all the right way to update a product line

50

When 'old' models get all the features from the new everyone wins.

We expected a new Shield TV was in the works. The current model is one of the best Android products available and NVIDIA keeps it that way by constantly providing content and fine tuning the features and software. You can tell they care about the Shield name, and specifically a Shield set-top box. We didn't expect to see Google Assistant or the NVIDIA Spot that extends it to more rooms, though. And we never would have assumed that it all was going to work with the Shield TV we have now.

The reason they can do this is because the new Shield TV has the same hardware as the old Shield TV. And don't let that worry you. There's nothing "better" available yet and if anything, Android is the slowest part of the picture. The X1 scales to do a lot more than Android asks of it, and the GPU is the same architecture that millions of desktop gaming PCs are using to play AAA titles on high-resolution monitors. There simply isn't any better hardware available for an ARM machine designed to play videos and games.

What has changed, and what we'll need to buy to make our old Shield TVs do all the tricks the new Shield TVs can do, are the remote and gamepad. The gamepad looks just all around better and buying one is a no brainer. Goodbye, capacitive silly mess and hello real buttons that you can feel when you're playing a game. I am going to Borderlands the hell out of you. Besides, this is how you get to have Google Assistant when it's finished — through the mic in the gamepad. I'm not sure if I'm changing to the new remote just yet. Giving up the headphone jack for an IR blaster isn't something I want to do.

The old Shield TV with the new software might be the best Shield TV.

I'll come right out and say what a lot of people might be thinking — the "old" Shield TV with the new software is the best Shield TV. The new box has some changes I like — it's smaller, and the capacitive button on the top is gone. There are also some changes I don't like — the IR receiver is gone so my Harmony remote setup wouldn't work the way it does today where I can click a button (or yell at Google Home) and turn on the TV, set the AV box, fire up the Shield and set the lights to switch to dim blue mode. The SD card slot is gone because there isn't room for it, and with two USB ports that you can connect a hard drive or thumb drive to it was a little redundant. Still, some people will miss it and I have actually used it to look at pictures on my camera's SD card. Finally, nerds need to know that the Micro-USB port is gone, and you'll need an adapter (or cable) to talk to your new Shield TV from your computer through one of the USB-A ports. None of these are real issues, but unless you really need something smaller, there's no reason to buy a new Shield TV. But yeah, buy a new controller or two.

Overall, this is a big win for us and something you don't see very often on the Android side of things. Your "old" existing stuff still works really good. When new stuff comes along, there are usually a few things that you can't do without buying it. I'll take the money I would have spent to buy a new Shield TV and buy NVIDIA Spots instead. Thanks, NVIDIA.

LG G6 rumor roundup

280

LG has a lot at stake with the G6. What do they need to do to succeed?

It's safe to say that LG didn't take the world by storm with the G5 in 2016. The phone had a lot of things going for it, but the Korean company, whose mobile division has been in Samsung's shadow for the past half decade, emphasized its modular ambitions a bit too much without supporting it with actual accessories worth buying.
