NVIDIA Shield Android TV review

40
NVIDIA Shield Android TV

While there isn't a ton of competition in the Android TV device space, NVIDIA has a clear leader in its Shield Android TV box.

The quick take

The Shield Android TV meets nearly every requirement when it comes to an all-in-one set top box for your entertainment center. You get 4K video support, surround sound pass-through, HDMI-CEC control, an infrared port, and support for all of the local and streaming games NVIDIA has to offer. The box has far more power than you'll need now, keeping you poised for future software and games, and with a variety of ports there are tons of possibilities when it comes to extending your experience. You'll have to spend a little more than most set top boxes for the Shield Android TV, but you're getting something worth the money and more if you choose to.

Google's got a crazy new launcher in the Android M Developer Preview

48
Android M Launcher

We know better than to assume anything is final in the Android M Developer Preview, but this new launcher is a spectacle that warrants a moment's consideration.

We're all still absorbing everything Google announced at I/O today, but it couldn't be more clear that the next version of Android is all about polishing the experience and making Google a part of every nook and cranny of the operating system. We've got a little bit of a wait for Android M to graduate to a full version of Android with its own hardware and everything, but the M Developer Preview images mean we can take a peek at the things Google is working on before that hardware launches.

If you do decide to flash the preview on your Nexus 5, Nexus 6, or Nexus 9, the first thing you'll notice upon opening the app drawer is a wildly different interface. We don't know if this is going to make it into the final version, but so far it's fun to play with.
