Best Replacement Remote for Nvidia Shield

The Nvidia Shield is compatible with a wide range of remotes that have a variety of different functions. Below we have selected three of the absolute best remote controls for Nvidia Shield that will make your browsing and your streaming even more convenient than it already is.

#1. Nvidia Shield Remote

  • Easy-to-use remote for NVIDIA Shield
  • Microphone for Google voice commands
  • Volume control and Bluetooth connectivity

Our first remote control is the standard Nvidia Shield Remote itself. This is the same remote control that is packaged with every Nvidia Shield TV box.

The standard remote made our list because it undeniably has a very unique design compared to other remote controls. To start off this remote only has a couple of buttons as it goes for a more minimalist approach. While most TV remotes have dozens of buttons, the Nvidia Shield Remote only has four. This makes it a fantastic choice for the TV viewer who only uses a small number of buttons.

The Nvidia Shield Remote also comes with Bluetooth connectivity which is what allows it to connect to the Shield box itself. It even also has a built-in microphone which you can use for Google Voice commands. You don’t often see this level of technology inside a mere TV remote control now, do you?

Last but not least we really just enjoy the visual design of the Nvidia Shield Remote. It actually looks less like a TV remote and more like some of Nvidia’s other products like their lineup of GPU graphics cards. The same can be said about the Nvidia Shield box itself.

#2. WeChip G20 Remote Control

If you want something that is a lot more traditional then you’ll probably love the WeChip G20 remote. This remote control comes with 18 buttons instead of only four.

The WeChip G20 remote control also has a built-in microphone for voice control. This can be used with any application that supports it. There’s also a built-in gyroscope so that you can use motion sensor technology for more accurate inputs when pointing the remote.

The G20 remote also has a low battery indicator that flashes at the top of the remote. Yes, this remote will actually let you know when you are low on energy and need to change the batteries. The indicator blinks red when your remote is at 10% or less so you’ll always be wary of when you need to switch out the batteries.

As the name implies, this is both a remote control and a keyboard. The front side of the MX3 has your standard remote control input layout.

Let’s say you’re browsing Youtube or Netflix and want to type in the name of a video or a show you want to watch.

We can’t overstate just how convenient this feature is.

If you don’t mind a lot of buttons then this could be the perfect Nvidia Shield remote for you.
