Samsung Galaxy Mega review

 

Size isn't everything

4G and microSD support ; Large, bright screen ; Doesn't feel too large ; Decent camera

Small internal storage ; Only dual-core ; No Full HD display ; Expensive

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 - Pocket-lint

 

We like the Mega. But there's no doubt in our minds that it'll be just too big for most people, and it lacks some of the cool features of something like

Great battery life, superb internet device, feels responsive

Possibly a bridge too far in terms of size, internal storage is too limited, plasticky build

If you know you want a big phone then the Mega makes sense but has few downsides. It might fit into our jeans pocket, but really only just, and it's a fair lump to carry around. But the screen makes up for it in size, and the battery life is impressive...

This huge 6.3-inch Android phone will crush you puny humans

Large screen effective for multi-tasking, Decent internal speaker

Too large for comfortable one-handed use, Several specs a generation behind, A little expensive

A fine way to replace both your phone and tablet, which is still just about small enough to fit in your pocket

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 review

 

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 may be portable but make no mistake, it is absolutely huge. At 88mm wide and almost 198mm tall, this is the biggest smartphone we've ever reviewed, easily dwarfing the Galaxy Note II by some margin. It's also bigger than the 6.1in...

The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is a mid-range smartphone with a gigantic 6.3in touchscreen. It offers excellent battery life and 4G connectivity, but performance is a mixed bag and it's impossible to use single-handedly.

Samsung Galaxy Mega Review: In Depth

 

Now that 2013 is well and truly underway, it's time to take a look at the more weird and wonderful handsets that flesh out the rest of Samsung's 2013 product portfolio and save perhaps for the Galaxy…

Excellent screen ; Premium design ; Expandable memory

Large size makes this a niche device ; UI isn't optimised for one-handed use ; Poor 3D gaming performance

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 review

 

How big is too big? Many phones these days, including the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S4, use a screen that is 4-inches or bigger. is that the right size or do we need even bigger? Samsung seems to believe that the latter option is true, so it has decided...

Vibrant screen, Great for watching videos, Huge battery

The back gets dirty quickly, Not enough internal storage, Screen could be higher res

Samsung Galaxy Mega review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Mega GT-I9205 is an Android smartphone with a 'Mega' big screen. Next to a 6.3-inch Super Clear HD screen, the Galaxy Mega is equipped with a 1.7 GHz Dual-Core processor, an 8 megapixel digital camera and a battery with an impressive...

U nfortunately, the suggested retail price of €599 makes us think that it is a high-end phone. Incidentally, the Samsung Galaxy Mega’s actual retail price is much lower. The smartphone is currently sold for €399 - only a month and a half after it was...
