How's the battery on the new game pad compared to the old one?
Jesus Baez (11 months ago)
I would just like to add a comma I recently purchased the product and let me tell you I've only had this product for about an hour and a half and I feel like it's the biggest mistake and it's such a headache first it brings no type of instruction manual whatsoever so in order from someone like me an adverb Joel to operate it I have to constantly watch videos on YouTube to learn how to operate it which is absolutely ridiculous who sells a product 100 instruction manual and yes I understand those type of things can be downloaded but yet still for a consumer it is inconvenient next I have been costly searching on YouTube on an instruction video on how to operate the remote use the air mouse capability another headache because for all the videos that I've watched and Soha far I've watched 11 of them none of them tell you exactly how to use the new remote all videos are of the old remote and even then they really don't explain much because the person who made the video is to psyched up on how great it is that they really truly never explain the main point which is how to operate it guess it's just me but like I said I was really psyched up to get this product and now that I have it I'm running back to Best Buy tomorrow to give this back it is not worth the headache in my opinion

can I get kodi on it
steve (1 year ago)
Most people buy this for kodi I believe so a tad over priced could gel the xbox one for the same price also kodi has gone full circle and returning to its original birth place on the xbox with an app being developed. I have the first generation of this device and yeah it's great but after all the updates has started to go Pete tong

Where is football on this machine? No Madden? What is going on?
If I were to get the new controller only, am I missing out on anything at all?
Eugene Schwartz (1 year ago)
I bought this a couple days ago. I have 4 older ones as well. Does Google assistant work out of the box or is it coming later? It is not working for me at all. No reviews I have seen say its coming later. How do I get it to work?

Second Generation 1. Removed micro SD slot to save money 2. No speed improvement over the other versions to save money 3. Smaller to save money 4. Removed headphone jack from the remote to save money conclusion 200 bucks for Nvidia to only save money... Crime? = Downgrade
Apollo Smile (1 year ago)
+NoChannel I'll stick to my old shield with metal base remote with headphone jack modded with a better battery. with a sd slot for internal storage use so that i have 2 usb ports available to me and so on :P then i will just buy the new controller the end :P
NoChannel (1 year ago)
Or just plug a USB stick in the back.
davethepak (1 year ago)
I agree, I would have liked to have the micro sd slot in there - makes the 16gb model useful, as the card could be mounted as internal storage. Of course, you can attach an external usb storage, but it is not quite he same.
Seven Fx (1 year ago)
Totally agree with that but we cant do anything but hope for a new version with SD slot... thats their way to make money
Apollo Smile (1 year ago)
You make valid points not disagreeing with you but to remove the micro SD when the 16gb console needs it badly is just a stab

no upgrade on Hardware?
davethepak (1 year ago)
No upgrade on hardware. I guess they figured (correctly) it was fast enough.

The only problem is this does not have 500 gb
Boe Dillard (1 year ago)
Standard edition should include an IR receiver for people using a nice universal remotely like the Logietch.  The biggest hardware improvement I was hoping for but didn't get was a better upscaler.    I wished they'd make a joint project with Oppo for a great streaming unit - I don't care about the games - they could making a standard unit and a gaming unit geared for people who want to play games.
RevafallDCUO (1 year ago)
Does anybody know if it support Flash and Java in the browsers you can get? So you can watch videos on websites etc.
Male Sensitivity (1 year ago)
I'd rather just buy a Playstation at this point. I don't really see the point of any of this. Android on my TV sucks my balls. Plus 1/2 the content on Amazon isn't even available with Prime in the first place.
Junior Chuxx (1 year ago)
how many gigs is the basic $200 model? is there a 500GB model?
CopUnderAverage (1 year ago)
Spikeyduy bruh
Spikeyduy (1 year ago)
16GB and for $100 more if you want the 500GB.
dabig 25 (1 year ago)
Have the original Shield now so if still going to still get OS updates don't see a need to upgrade
legrandzeus007 (1 year ago)
dabig 25 same here, I have the original one at least i think buying the new controller wich i hope that it is compatible with the 2015's one
JailbreakJunk (1 year ago)
sad not to have a graphic upgrade "X2" instead of X1... playing dolphin emulator will have no improvement?!?!
JailbreakJunk (1 year ago)
voice assistance is nice when you live in North America but living in Europe it sucks due it's not compatible with local languages (example Dutch)
Dawn Moon (1 year ago)
On Amazon.de it shows a picture with the remote and controller. Does this mean this comes as a bundle or are those just separate options ? If you only get the shield , how are you supposed to control it ? ( would a wireless PC Xbox One controller work ? :) )
[ olof44 ] (1 year ago)
The shield comes with the remote and controller in bundle.When you get your shield you need to press and hold the middle botton of the remote to get it connected to the shield
Nick (1 year ago)
does this have a web browser?
Droogie128 (1 year ago)
It's Android.
DanielRichards644 (1 year ago)
will that Amazon Video be coming to the original Shield with the Nougat update?
DanielRichards644 (1 year ago)
+NoChannel well good for you, around here we didn't.
NoChannel (1 year ago)
Says somebody who does not realise such limitations are on for certain geographical locations. We've had Amazon Video with HD on the shield from the beginning without sideloading.
DanielRichards644 (1 year ago)
+NoChannel says someone who was NOT aware of HOW things worked before the new Shield Update (that came in the other day), you couldn't "just download it from the play store", you had to sideload all kinds of stuff just to get it HALF functional and even then it was in STANDARD DEFINITION. Now we can get up to 4k.
NoChannel (1 year ago)
Yes, but who needs to wait for an update. Just download it from Google Play.

phone free android VR maybe?

Will the Old Nvidia shield Tv get Amazon Video?
BARTZ13 (1 year ago)
Adam Martensen (1 year ago)
Is it worth spending the extra $100 for the 500GB or will it work to use an external hard drive with 16GB?
Fev Gomeli (1 year ago)
Johnny T. Vu I have the old nvidia shield tv1 16gb , if spending 100 is nothing for you, I would say buy the 500 gb one, kids come to house and the figure figured how to use the system, they added war thunder, and some other android stuff like kodi, and the thing is full already, had to delete some android games I downloaded my self to create space, I will get one sd card and set it as an internal hard drive.
Johnny T. Vu (1 year ago)
not really unless you wanna put alot of emulator games on there. 16GB seem fine since you can add SD card.
AquaLady 420 (1 year ago)
Sooo what's the difference?
Wes Baugher (1 year ago)
wait so i have to original Shield..bought it about 8 months ago... Does it have the same specs as the new one? And will any of the new featrues like google assistant be on the previous model
Wes Baugher (1 year ago)
So far i think it looks like it. atleast from everything iv'e seen so far Which hey i think is cool because i have the original sheild. and if i want the new controller i can just buy that seperatly.
AquaLady 420 (1 year ago)
Wes Baugher that's what I wanna know
AC Milan 1899 (1 year ago)

R RB is cool (1 year ago)
im gonna buy that plus I love the controller much than the last controller
Kleptocrat (1 year ago)
Doesn't matter if updates come quickly if the actual user experience is shit. I have the Shield Tablet, and no matter how many updates it receives, it still has the same 10+ second freezes with more than two background apps.
AquaLady 420 (1 year ago)
Kleptocrat oh damn

Pre-Ordered this little Monster today.. couldn't resist tee hee.. Christmas gift to MOI....
SkillipEvolver (1 year ago)
Ya know.. No one so far is ragging on that controller.. THIS THING IS PITCHED AS A GAMER FRIENDLY STREAMER! Yet no one is pissed at an 'angular' controller. Since like 30 years ago it was decided rounded edges and ergonomic fit are what's needed. So what the hell possesses a gaming-savvy company like NVidia to design something this way?.. No one is complaining... thus... mainly streaming fans are eyeing this one up. Another way to look at it... their marketing is failing to target gamers.
T Ma (1 year ago)
No more SD card slot.
Pao Vang (1 year ago)
The old controller had haptic feedback too.
Vecopotryx (1 year ago)

Allan Acta All AndroidTV products have Chromecast built in.
not the first Android tv device to get Amazon....Sony had it beforehand.
Nich Citarella (1 year ago)
So same internals...kinda glossed over that
davethepak (1 year ago)
while true it was not mentioned, this was a "what's new" video, not "whats the same" video.
HighEndMe (1 year ago)
It runs Dolphin, and it runs it well. That's all you have to know about it :D
MrGhost370 (1 year ago)
That's not a bad thing. It's still the most powerful streaming box out there.

How can I buy the new Shield in New Zealand?
Marcus Ball (1 year ago)
Perenara no one here sells it. You'll have to go through Amazon. I got the original by using youshop but it looks like they're shipping it straight to us
Brando Boyer (1 year ago)
where do I buy this? I will right now
AquaLady 420 (1 year ago)
+triggerhappy0404 I don't have any experience with this myself but dinner lots of research. That's a good question. I only know of the Google play games.
IceCola (1 year ago)
+AquaLady 420 (HoodChick) What about gaming? What servers will it be running on and who will you play with? Pc players?
AquaLady 420 (1 year ago)
It's the 16gb one. For $100 more u can get the 500gb one. You can use an external hd, flashdrive or even an sd card to expand the memory. Hope u enjoy!
Brando Boyer (1 year ago)

Talked to a guy that met with Nvidia at CES who said that works on the new controller
Kenny (1 year ago)

MrGhost370 (1 year ago)

vidvox1 (1 year ago)
