Yesterday, we got an eyeful of NVIDIA's new Tegra 4 and Tegra 4i, along with the Phoenix, NVIDIA's nifty reference device. The benchmarks were quite impressive compared to current-generation processors, but all we got to see in terms of gaming performance was a brief demo of Real Boxing.

In a video posted today to NVIDIA's YouTube channel, the chip maker shows off a "Tegra 4 enhanced Zombie Driver," side by side with the same game running on a "non-Tegra 4" device.

[MWC 2013] Hands-On (Video) With Samsung Home Sync: I Don't Quite Know What It's For, But I Kind Of Really Want One

So, Google TV isn't exactly great. And Windows media boxes aren't exactly "average consumer" friendly. With that in mind, it would seem, Samsung has unveiled the Home Sync box. It's a 1TB media server / smart TV box all-in-one, and it's actually pretty cool. To clarify, the Home Center does not run Google TV. The idea here is that Home Sync is the center of your Galaxy-device life - which is to say, I doubt you'd want one if you aren't already carrying around a fair bit of Galaxy hardware.

[MWC 2013] Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Hands-On (Video): Yep, It's A Small-Ish Samsung Tablet With A Pen

There's been a lot of hubbub around the Note 8.0 leading up to MWC, and this morning, we finally got a chance to go hands-on with Samsung's newest slate. The early verdict? It's... an Android tablet with an S-Pen and Samsung software.

In that sense, the Note 8.0 seems like a smart move. People love the Note II, but the Note 10.1 may be too large a step up for a lot of folks (I personally don't like 10.1" tablets).

[MWC 2013] Hands-On (Video) With The 5.5" Optimus G Pro - Yes, It's A Lot Like A Note II

When we first caught a leaked glimpse of the Optimus G Pro in 5.5" form, Note II comparisons were immediately drawn - the G Pro really is the Note's not-so-long-lost brother.

This morning, at LG's booth at MWC in Barcelona, we got some hands-on time with LG's latest and largest handset, and overall, it impresses. The Optimus G Pro is running Android 4.1.2, and it's by far the quickest non-Samsung handset I've ever used.
