    Can you use the shield as a controller for another android device say like a galaxy note 10.1.

    Would be interested in playing the shield on the road, but when I am at home, I would like to play on my tablet's larger screen.
    No.
    You can use console mode with a bluetooth controller and use your tv as the monitor, though.

    The device might be rooted and has a modified rom, so can not take the official update.

    Might need to start from scratch. XDA is the best site for people that could help. I have no clue besides this.

    I was considering to get this, but the big bezel bugs me. Could have been a 5.5" display.

    Still a sweet device, but I have too many already.

    Hi.

    I would like to know a few things about the Nvidia Portable and I hope you would like to help me.

    I currently have a PS Vita which I only play Fifa with. But Fifa do not make games for PS Vita anymore - only annually updates - same game every year.

    I would like to know if you can play Fifa on the Nvidia portable and not only the mobile version which is a downgraded version of the console version. I would really like to play the real console version on a portable device and I thought the Nvidia might do the job? I know that you can stream it from your PC which is not my interest.

    I live in Denmark and I would also like to know if there is any limitations of buying games etc. when you live in a country where you actually can't by the Nvidia Portable. I have to buy it in England.

    Thanks a lot.

    Regards MrBastian

    MrBastian,

    A quick look from my NVIDIA Shield Portable in the Playstore shows FIFA 14 by EA Sports. Is this what you were looking for? Also there shouldn't be any limitations of downloading or purchasing games/apps from the PlayStore just because the device isn't sold in that country or region. I know there are some limitations but they are quickly diminishing and opening the doors to everyone.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Kevin, I have an icon in the upper right corner of my Nvidia Shield tablet that looks like a circle with a diagonally line thru it. I would think it's a no connection icon but I have a connection. Before this I had a star up there that looked like a favorites icon that one just eventually disappeared. I'm wondering why this icons just keep showing up, or is there something I can do to control them. I took a screenshot but I can't seem to figure how to share it in this reply box. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Anyone here with that previously used a Galaxy Note 8.0 before getting the Shield?

    I'm interested in the differences with the experience of using each of those tablets.
