Excerpt: Back when Samsung released the Galaxy Note many people thought it was just too big for a phone but that didn’t stop it becoming a very popular device. Certainly when we reviewed it the overall opinion was positive, even if it did feel at times like anyone sitting next to you could read all the text on the screen.
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.
Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Review: Titantic phone, petite tablet (AT&T)
3 September 2013
Excerpt: Darting through the hordes of tourists and commuters who crowd the New York City streets each day, I get my first clue. With a 6.3-inch display, is the Galaxy Mega 6.3 too much phone or not enough tablet? Here's a Galaxy Mega 6.3 review to help decide.
Excerpt: Is it a phone, a tablet or a phablet? You decide. The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is here on AT&T, and despite the jumbo size, the price is small at $149 on contract and $479 without contract. Clearly that means you don't get top of the line specs, but the Mega 6.3 belies its mid-range specs with good performance and quality.
Pros: Absolutely huge display, relatively low price. Decent performance and plenty of features.
Cons: Specs are middle of the road, resolution isn't that high, storage is small.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Note 6.3 is not a tablet disguised as a smartphone, no matter how much it would appear to be one. Instead you've got a massive handset made for those users that have out-of-the-ordinary needs. Perhaps you're professional basketball player that's twice the size of the average human. Maybe you're in need of a large display to play movies on your frequent airplane trips and the Galaxy Note II just isn't cutting it.
Summary: Samsung's Galaxy Mega lives up to its name. For some, this 6.3-inch will reek of tech frivolity, but those looking to combine the size of a tablet with the functionality of a phone will appreciate what this phablet has to offer. As a multimedia device, the Mega is great for watching video and playing games (as long as they're not too demanding). The 8-MP camera is also quite good for the price, and the Mega delivers loud audio.
Pros: Ginormous display with rich vibrant color, Good battery life, Loud audio, Fast 4G LTE speeds, Doubles as TV remote
Cons: Difficult to use with one hand, Lacks features and gestures found on GS4, Some lag at times
