[Review] Samsung GALAXY Mega 6.3 (GT-I9205) – Part 1: Design and Build, Key Features, Camera
14 October 2013
Excerpt: You may think that the Samsung GALAXY Note II was pushing the envelope in terms of smartphone size, but Samsung obviously had other ideas up its talented sleeves. The ‘phablet’ segment was spearheaded by the leading Korean handset maker, and the highly successful GALAXY Note and GALAXY Note II...
Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Review: The Supersized Phablet
27 September 2013
Conclusion: My experience with the Samsung Galaxy Mega changed my perception on phablets. I learned to look beyond the size and appreciate the advantages it can offer. I said before that Samsung has gone nuts for releasing a 6.3″ phablet.
Pros: Large Display, LTE, Very good battery life even with LTE on
Conclusion: For those who want the best specs and features in a big-screen smartphone (and are willing to pay for them) Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra outclass the Galaxy Mega with 1080p screens and fancy features (like the S Pen).
Pros: Massive screen looks good and is great for everything, Great battery life, Expandable storage via MicroSD card
Cons: Large size makes phone calls without a headset look and feel ridiculous, Camera is good but not great, Won’t fit comfortably in most pockets, Loaded up with too many pre-installed apps

Conclusion: Now, that isn’t to say the Mega 6.3 is an all together bad piece of kit, because it isn’t. The camera, display, and battery life were surprisingly solid despite the Mega 6.3’s laggy performance in casual use.
Pros: Excellent screen, solid battery life and a decent camera
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Mega is both absurd and awesome. It has the largest screen of any smartphone in the U.S., and is a top Android-based pick on AT&T if you don't need the absolute latest cutting-edge components.
Pros: Mega-size screen. Not-so-mega-size price. Slim design. Tons of software features. Stellar battery life.
Cons: Display isn't full HD. Not the fastest gaming performance. Stereo speakers would have been better, given its size.
Excerpt: If users found the Galaxy Note phablet series to be unwieldy and an odd form factor, the Galaxy Mega is even more perplexing as it straddles the phablet and tablet computing categories. With a display size of 6.3 inches, the Mega, as reviewed on AT&T Mobility and forthcoming on Sprint in the U.S.
Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Review: Titantic phone, petite tablet (AT&T)
3 September 2013
Conclusion: Do you want a smartphone or tablet? The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is the closest anyone has gotten without making people choose - in the U.S., at least. There are plenty of phones with large screens that blur the lines, but most are just phones with above-average display sizes.
