SHIELD First-impressions Around the Web

By TegraZone - Fri, Aug 2, 2013

SHIELD is now available and the positive reviews have come pouring in! The folks at Forbes commented on the price by saying that, "SHIELD is loaded, and its internals justify the $299 price tag." SlashGear made it a point to call out that "SHIELD’s display is straight up excellent. Viewing angles couldn’t be better, brightness is such that you’ll be able to play outside (in the shade), and color accuracy is spot-on." As for Android Central, they simply said, "You'll get an experience like no other, with titles built especially for the device that play as good or better than they do on any of the current-generation consoles."
