The Cordies 2015: The Best Android TV Player of 2015




AndroidTVAndroid TV is the OS that recently replaced Google TV. 2015 saw several new Android TV boxes—most notably the Razer Forge and Nvidia Shield.

Both of these boxes stand out for several reasons, focus heavily on gaming, and with the backing of Google and the Google Play store users have access to hundreds of apps and a wide range of services.

The winner of the 2015 Cordy for Best Android TV Player: The Nvidia Shield.shield-android-tvThe Nvidia Shield is not cheap, but remember you get what you pay for. It is a powerhouse of a streaming box with some of the best specs on the market, and it can rival any of the top four streaming boxes when looking at speed and performance.

The Shield is one of the best Kodi boxes with 4K Kodi support—something the Fire TV does not offer.

The Shield also has great remotes and game controllers made from high-quality metal and plastic. These remotes are some of the best on the market.

If you want gaming, streaming, or are looking for a Kodi device, the Nvidia Shield is the Android TV box for you.
