    in any case, in the next few days all egreat owners will have access to ANDROID 7 beta 2, so we will likely have a lot of opinions and that is a good thing

    The Shield is primarily a streaming games machine that is designed to provide Nvidia with a revenue stream from their game store. It relies on third parties for the rest.
    Whilst it may suit your needs it is misleading to describe it as the best media player, which it certainly is not.
  3. The shield is no way the best media player the picture is very subpar if you look at them side by side they are night day with the egreat is far sup6 which is mentioned how average the Nvidia shield picture is on a lot of forums

    Still did not give it a shot yourself? Surprises me a bit as you are the biggest promoter of Android 7 here.

    I tested beta 1 just for reviewing stability... And all was ok...it was a hassle to erase everything...but i though i would have crashes and freezes... But nothing of the sort. so yes i was really waiting... But i might go to beta 3 directly :)
  7. that's good news might go nenito2k might go with the beta 1 on the A11 if there is no crashes or freezers we wait and see

    My friend got the Shield, PQ not great to me. For those like me who primarily MKV/BDISO users, Egreat PQ is much better, as good as playing back through my TV's USB 3.0.

    Sorry I didn't see Rita post.
    Anyway Android 7.0 f/w on stage from beta 2 are not ready to be push in all devices.
    Let's give another week(s) to have more stable Android 7.0 base for implement in all Egreat devices.

    @darren marshall beta 1 is basically useless as you can't use the video players... so that is why i experienced no bugs, there is nothing that can bug :)

    anyway i suppose that this week you can test along with all other owners android 7

    I think @Rita has been very clear. The firmware for the A8 A10 A11 is being tested and if it passes testing it should be released this week. Of course it also obvious that if faults are found it may take longer.
    As I have said to you many times in software development there are no absolute dates. It will be ready when it is ready.

    @Nuckyt77 You are entitled to your opinion. I currently don’t own an Egreat but will probably buy another A11 when my supplier has restocked. I don’t buy junk.
    I certainly would not buy a Shield as I agree with @darren marshall that it has subpar picture quality compared to players using the HiSilicon SOC and the build quality is very basic.
    Egreat have been slow developing A7 but the A5 builds continue to offer class leading picture quality. Yes with a couple of bugs but most movies play without problems.
  14. If you believe that the Nvidia shield is picture perfect you seriously need to see the opticians because the egreat A11 trounces all over the Nvidia , yes I agree the egreat is not perfect but when I turn mine on I am greeted with a perfectly working machine that plays back everything that I've thrown at it and yes I believe that there is a beta A7 firmware and yes there will be bugs as well they are expected but with a steady flow of updates they will be ironed out but hey if you think the Nvidia is picture perfect then perhaps it's you who believe fairy tales ,each to there own enjoy
