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.
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.

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 review: Medium extra large
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.
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,1080...
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
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.
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
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
Cons: Too big, Low resolution screen, Average performance, Price
Summary: T he bigger, the better , right? If you follow this maxim, you may have noticed that the smartphone world is moving along the same path. It may come as a surprise, but Dell was really one of the pioneers in the large-screened smartphone category, or phablets as some like to call them, with its...
Summary: “Oh my, that’s so big”, she gushed. Well, that’s one of the reactions you’re likely to evoke when you flash a Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 in front of a lady. Like it or not, when it comes to matters of size, the smartphone world is now leaning towards the ones endowed with large screens.
Pros: Decent camera, dual-SIM support, above average battery life
Cons: Ho-hum design, low resolution screen, no USB On-The-Go support
Excerpt: Samsung is no more of an unknown brand in the industry of innovative smart phone technology. So, when it comes to most efficient smart phones, the first brand name comes to our mind is Samsung.
