GSM Arena
7 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is the smaller member of a pair that leads the "go-big-or-go-home" campaign. If you're looking for a device that gives you big screen action without breaking the bank, it's a device worthy of your consideration as it falls in just short of the tablet range.

  • Cons: Big, even for a phablet, Resolution on the low side for the screen size, Midrange performance, Design is a bit played out by now, Shared camera interface makes framing tricky

  • Pros: Large screen makes gaming and watching videos very comfortable, Decent camera, Dual SIM phone
  • Cons: Low resolution display, Occasional performance issues, Difficult to handle and carry around

  • Summary: Its huge 5.8 inch screen has the wow factor but fails to provide the kind of performance that one would expect from a device priced above Rs 20,000. When you are in the No 1 position, expectations are bound to increase and everything you do would be considered as the benchmark.
  • Pros: Big Display, Intuitive User Interface, Camera
  • Cons: Erratic touch response, Slow, Price

15 July 2013
  • Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is a part of Samsung’s two pronged approach to capture the audience looking for a device even bigger than the 5.5inch Note 2 but smaller than a tablet. Targeting the 5.8 inch and 6.3 inch segments, Samsung now has handsets at practically every screen size.
  • Pros: Decent camera, Great battery life, Dual SIM
