Mobile gaming fun. Thanks to the LTE Cat 4 module, the top model can be used for gaming on-the-go anywhere. In addition, Nvidia doubled the flash memory, which worked significantly faster in our test model.

With Qualcomm dominating the smartphone chipset market in the U.S., Nvidia is doubling down on its core competency: gaming. Even so, with a $399 price tag and LTE connectivity, the Shield Tablet has exceptional appeal for gamers and non-gamers alike. It blows other tablets out of the water when it comes to gaming and has an outstanding price-to-feature ratio for an LTE-enabled tablet. There are two comparable models available with LTE connectivity: the iPad mini with Retina and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4, both of which cost $529.99 with AT&T LTE and only come with 16GB of internal storage.

The NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with Wi-Fi and 16GB of internal storage will run you $299 MSRP, while the 32GB LTE version will cost $399. We’d recommend picking up a SHIELD Cover along with whatever model you get - that’ll cost you $39 for a magnetic flap that attaches to the side of the tablet extremely well, protecting your precious glass display in the process.

Nvidia’s Shield Tablet LTE offers strong value for £299, even before the gaming side is considered. For that cash you get a light and portable tablet with a Full HD display, decent stereo speakers, 4G support, an accurate stylus and enough power to keep your apps and games ticking over for a good, long while. If you're not big into gaming, something like the Nexus 7 tablet might be better suited for you, with its similar Full HD display and clean Android interface, but gamers shouldn't look anywhere else - the Nvidia Shield Tablet is the king of portable gaming devices.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.
