Due to the Tegra 4’s direct touch technology, the touch response is far better than any other devices. The only thing is that it would have been better if the bezel didn’t take up so much space.
The speakers are custom designed and the controller’s deep body adds up to the advantage. For better bass response there are two tuned ports. The company has gone to the extent of comparing the sound to any high end laptops. They say that Shield provides much better sound quality.
