The ouya is better than the S3 honestly. I have the note 2 and running through an MHL adapter into my TV it chugs when trying to emulate N64 graphics. Now my Nexus 7 on the otherhand (same specs as the Ouya mind you) pushes all of my N64 games without any slow down. Now my Note 2 has double the ram and a higher clock speed than the Nexus 7 but the Tegra 3 just does graphics better. Honestly that is what the Ouya has going for it. If they would have used a Snapdragon or cheap chinese nock off like the gamestik I dont think it would do very well.

I like my Nexus 4's Snapdragon O.O. It's the smoothest mobile SoC I have ever used. The phone in terms of phones never, ever lags (standard these days for a mid-end or better phone) and games, for once, are supersmooth and look great in XDPI. I really want to see this progress, it has the horsepower to really kick butt. And if we can get optimization it will be insanely smooth on your TV. I'm guessing your TV is either ~1920x1200 or ~1280x800. I have to say that when I load up an iOS optimized copy of Shadowgun, it runs so smooth on 2048x1536 you'd think it was a PS3 gameplay video. Seriously, mobile gaming has so much potential right now. After playing just about every new Xbox 360 title available, I'm still amazed by the visual sharpness on my little N4.

I really didn't get that post. Are you trying to say it has a few known issues, or it has very few known issues? I love my Nexus 4, I loaded up Paranoid ROM on it and it pretty much makes the phone perfect... at least to me.

I have a plan to buy N4, but as I hard that it has few known issue like buzzing sound, heating problem, I am waiting for next nexus release.

I feel like the Shield by nVidia does everything the Ouya does, but better. I am starting to feel that Android is limiting both these systems though.

It should at 4 times the price. Can it be connected to a large screen?

No, that is like comparing apples and oranges. Go to www.ouya.tv for info. Also do a search for Ou ya games on YouTube. They come in many different grades of quality but, there are some coming online with the same quality I pay $15.00 or more on PS3 store.
