Summary: It's a great phone. It's not as fast as some smaller ones but the slower speed doesn't bother me too much. It has great battery power and also has a cool larger screen. For me, at first, it was odd to have such a large phone. But I got use to it. It just seems, as I look at it now, to me, to be a regular size phone. I no longer see it as overly large. It's great to read books on! And has a good loud speaker. It took time though to get use to handling it.
Pros: batter power , easy to get use to , large screen , loud speaker
Cons: slower but not too much , power button in annoying spot
Summary: I previously had the Note 2 and patiently waited on the Note 3 to be released. After seeing the Samsung Mega I immedietly made the purchase. I rarely talk on my phone, it is mostly used for surfing the web and sending e-mails. Why not have a huge phone?? and of course, people are so amazed that i have a phone that huge! LOVE IT!!
Summary: If you need a phone that rides the line between tablet and smartphone, look no further. I think this is probably the absolute limit on size for a smartphone, and I love it. If you have failing eyesight (like me), love games, love to draw or take notes on your device definitely give this a look. Although a member of the Galaxy family, it doesn't retain all of the features of the S4 or the Galaxy Note 3, but in my opinion that's a good thing.
Summary: I got this one because I could not read many things on my Droid 2, text messages, my on-line banking, emails, have bad eye sight and that's wish correction. This phone I can read EVERYTHING with ease, make the text bigger in text messages, emails, on-line banking. I really love this phone and what's best of all, I thought that having on a touch screen with no querty keyboard will stop me using is as much but I can actually type better on this than any other phone I have...
Summary: Just got this phone about 3 days ago and "man" it is big! I was a little nervous about how I would carry it around, but I got used to it. I traded my iphone 5 for it. I needed a bigger screen and got tired of waiting for Apple to deliver. This phone runs surprisingly smooth. It is fast and the battery last me all day. Finding a case for it was not easy. Most likely will need to get a Bluetooth headset for it. Love the big screen!
Summary: I've been an iphone user to samsung note 1 & 2. This is so perfect. Don't let bad reviews discourage you. Its big but not bulky. Very easy on the eyes. Especially if you play games, surf & social media. This phone is right on. I have no complain & the price is very reasonable yet it is only 7cm away from a mini ipad. You only need to carry 1 device. So take it from this review. I have had all cells. This is not a novice reviewer.
Summary: If you are looking for a phone that won't get lost in your purse and need a screen large enough to view text without reading glasses! This is it! I love my Mega! I was concerned about the bad reviews I had seen which talked about the resolution not being so good. I have no complaints. This phone does everything I need it to. I do not miss my iPhone at all!
If your looking at this phone, it's because YOU WANT A BIG PHONE & THIS IS IT.

Summary: I loved my Samsung Note 2 and patiently waited for the Note 3. Then I came across the Mega in July but seen it was only available in Russia and elsewhere. So when I heard it was at the AT&T store on a Friday I spent the rest of the day and most of the following Saturday debating whether or not to get the Mega or the Note 3 which was 2 weeks out. I broke down and got the Mega because I knew NO ONE had it and because it was bigger.
