5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Tablets built by Nvidia generally have good reviews.

Four Processor Coress

Most of the other tablets that came out around the same time as the Shield Tablet only have between two and three processor coress, however the Nvidia Shield Tablet has four processor coress.

We compared this tablet to all the other 4 processor cores tablet computers and we think the Xiaomi Mi Pad which has better reviews is also worth considering.
