Samsung Galaxy Mega Review: In Depth

5 December 2013
  • Conclusion: First impressions are certainly deceptive with the Samsung Galaxy Mega. It’s size seems prohibitively big at first, but it actual makes for a great experience, both navigating the interface and especially when watching content. From a practical standpoint, it’s worth checking whether you have bags or pockets big enough to accommodate this phone, but if you’re looking for a purpose-built, well connected movie-friendly phone this is one of the best.
  • Pros: Excellent screen, Premium design, Expandable memory
  • Cons: Large size makes this a niche device, UI isn't optimised for one-handed use, Poor 3D gaming performance

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Review

12 July 2013
  • Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is an interesting idea: at first, one might think “why bother” since the Galaxy Note seems occupy the same space, but if you take pricing into account, you will see that it opens a Galaxy Note like experience at a much lower price point. Granted, if you are a “specs” person, this is really not for you, just pay more and get something more powerful – wait for the Note 3 for instance.

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Review

9 July 2013
  • Summary: It's difficult to recommend the Galaxy Mega 5.8. To start with you get better specifications from the Huawei Ascend Mate for the same price. Sure, the Mega 5.8 has a good camera; works well as a phone, and features Samsung shenanigans. However, the display and build of the device feel lacklustre when compared to the competition. If you want a device with a really large display that isn't the Galaxy Note II, you should consider the Galaxy Mega 6.3 or the Ascend Mate.
  • Pros: Good camera, Smooth interface, Slew of Samsung preloaded apps
  • Cons: Lacklustre display, Low performance when compared to other phones in the same price range, Lags during heavy gaming

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 review: Medium extra large

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. The dual-SIM support is also a huge plus in this regard, as many emerging markets have users who are keen on having not only the ability to wield a larger screen around, but also be able to...
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; quad-band 3G with HSPA; LTE; Dual-SIM version available, 5.8" 16M-color qHD (540 x 960) TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen, Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UI, Dual-core 1.4 GHz Broadcom CPU, VideoCore IV GPU, 1.5GB of RAM, 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash,1080p video recording @ 30fps, continuous autofocus and stereo sound, 1.9 MP front-facing camera, 1080p video recording, Dual shot and dual video recording, Drama shot, Shot and s...
  • 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

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Review

Phone Arena
22 May 2013
  • Conclusion: No, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 isn't ridiculous despite its gargantuan proportions. It is simply not a smartphone for the mainstream market. Rather, it is meant to be used by a very specific demographic – those few who want their smartphone to have a large display above all. Without a doubt, having such a huge screen makes gaming a lot more comfortable and it is great for watching video or photos.
  • 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

  • Conclusion: From the blasting music to the 3D graphic soothe, from strong connectivity to the snaps you shoot- the Galaxy Mega GT I9152 will never disappoint you. If you are dying to use Galaxy S4 and failing to buy that because of your expense limit, then this phablet is exactly what you want without burning your pocket badly!

Обзор смартфона Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 I9152

31 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Серия смартфонов Galaxy Mega стала связующим звеном между нишевыми Note и двухсимными моделями линейки Galaxy. При этом Mega 5.8 – это, конечно, не флагманское устройство. По своим характеристикам и возможностям, смартфон, скорее, рассчитан на тех, кто превыше всего ценит большую диагональ. Безусловно, это отличное мультимедийное устройство – здесь комфортно просматривать и фото, и видео. Также это замечательный спутник для всех любителей мобильного интернета.

Обзор Samsung Galaxy Mega 5,8 - смартшет с двумя SIM-картами!

23 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Что огорчило, так это довольно слабая по сегодняшним меркам аппаратная платформа, которая к тому же отличается некоторой нестабильностью, что кажется странным для устройства от именитого вендора и с ценой под 20 тысяч рублей. Впрочем, возможно это особенности конкретного сэмпла и в серийных устройствах данной проблемы не будет.

Обзор Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Duos

2 October 2013
  • Summary: Помните, на первых порах Galaxy Note называли смелым экспериментом? Сегодня, учитывая успешное продолжение модели, можно смело говорить, что эксперимент удался: крупные смартфоны нашли своего покупателя. Samsung продолжает играться с размерами, представляя еще большего гиганта, но при этом переведя его в средний ценовой сегмент. Схожесть с флагманом, кстати, может сыграть Mega неплохую службу.

Обзор Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8: гигантский смартфон с двумя SIM-картами

26 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Samsung Galaxy Mega — это эксперимент компании. С одной стороны, большой экран удобен для фильмов, интернета, игр и прочего. С другой же, он накладывает ограничения на физический размер корпуса. Не всем будет удобно носить Mega в кармане, держать в руке. Но своя ниша у этих аппаратов определенно есть. Расширяет потенциальную аудиторию цена, которая существенно ниже, чем у Galaxy Note. Тут нет зависимости "больше экран — выше стоимость".
