The build quality, screen and sound are amazing, absolutely no complaints. As soon as I turned it on it updated to Android 7.0.
The UI is basically vanilla android with a few Nvidia apps thrown in.
My only compliant, the battery drains fairly quickly when browsing, but lasts much better when using apps and video.
DON'T FORGET - with a new Nvidia shield you get 3 month subscription to Nvidia Geforce now which is a game subscription service with many free games on, you just need a bluetooth controller to play them.
I have had a problem with this device, though : the battery. The battery life is not good and it runs low on juice after just a few hours of not particularly intensive use. Furthermore, the battery display on my Shield was inaccurate and I think the power socket doesn't hold the cable well 100% of the time, so it wasn't charging. I had almost asked for a refund to be processed when it magically blinked into life with 5% charge. This has happened a couple of times over a 3-4 month period.
Overall, this is a solid first tablet despite the battery issues and I am pleased I chose it. You will need to get your own charging cable and a standard phone charger won't do the job unless the tablet is off and even then would take many hours to charge fully.
Buy this tablet, you won't regret it.
As my first tablet I can say I am satisfied.
Update: After a year, I've decided to get an iPad 2017 to replace the Shield tablet. Battery life has not improved and despite wiping data, the lag is only getting worst with age. A shame really, but from being fast it has now become extremely laggy and the screen can be so unresponsive I have to reboot the device. Not worth the outlay and no longer receiving software updates.
