Not sure about that, the gpu is nice, but most other specs are old-hatNvidia Shield is the "Beast", "Dragkiller",...whatever....
It eats everything like peanuts.

Nvidia SHIELD vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 - Phone specs comparison
I'm assuming you meant turned USB Debugging ONJust my 2 cents here.. I use a Samsung Tab 10.1. The stock device holder that came with the RC doesn't fit this particular tablet, so I took a round file to it, and gouged out two indentations into it, just a little bit, and the tablet fit in there just fine.
Performance: Lag! Ugh! Once I cleaned-up and turned-off all the useless crap apps installed into it by T-Mo, or whomever, then rolled-back Google Play Services, turned off USB debugging, this thing works great.
Glare: Ugh! Glare on this thing is terrible. I just got some generic sunshade thing I ordered online, slapped a DJI decal on it, and there 'ya go! Coolness & functionality in one!
Weight: Yeah, it is noticeably heavier than anything else I've used, most notably my POS cell phone, which is a Samsung Galaxy Avant (works great with the DJI Go App, btw).
As far as the weight of this thing... well, don't freehand it. Get a lanyard, or a harness or something. Even for one flight, this tablet puts a severe strain on your neck. I wear lanyard from Drone Nerds that has a wide strap to it, and I can comfortably get about 2, maybe 3 flights while wearing it. Any flight times longer than that, I use a fake sheepskin seatbelt cover thing I picked-up at the dollar store. Works perfectly.
My suggestion is if you're going to fly for longer than that, and I've done 8 battery changes for one gig! - you might want to look at other mounting options like on a camera stand, or tripod.
Overall: This is a great tablet to use with this app. Is it the best one out there? Probably not. But, it works fine for me at the moment.
What are you talking about Shield 2?? It is only a rumor at this point. Nobody actually has one (unless perhaps you're an insider at Nvidia?).old Tab S too......So yes if you want off the shelf tablet there is a Shield 2 and a Tab S2.....both with upgraded specs.
The f*$k if i know....i just posted link comparing Tab S vs Shield 1....then i was told there's a new shield and old is not available, i then used a pc to calculate that the number 2 follows 1 (Sesame Street confirms that too). Then i figured if we're considering the latest and greatest might as well mention the Tab S2 .What are you talking about Shield 2?? It is only a rumor at this point. Nobody actually has one (unless perhaps you're an insider at Nvidia?).
NVIDIA Shield Tablet 2 rumors begin, packing an 8-core processor
