4 January 2014
Summary: Whatever sort of smartphone you might want, Samsung has got you covered. Unlike its chief competitor, Apple, which recently broke with tradition by unveiling (gasp!) two new models of iPhone at once, the Korean monolith makes devices of all shapes and sizes.
Summary: The HTC One Max offers a more stylish design, better quad-core performance and a higher-resolution display for just $50 more, but it's heavier and doesn't do as much as the Mega, software -wise, to take advantage of the extra screen real estate.
Summary: With its 6.3-inch display, the Samsung Galaxy Mega is an unquestionable goliath, making it unsuitable if you're after a pocketable smart phone. If you value screen size for videos above everything else though, it's certainly worth a look, but it's quite pricey considering the mid-range specs it...
Pros: Huge display gives loads of room for video; Bright, bold screen; Good battery life; Decent camera.
Cons: Sheer size makes it awkward for everyday use; Quite pricey; Dual-core processor doesn't impress.
Pros: 4G and microSD support, Large, bright screen, Doesn't feel too large, Decent camera, We could sit on the fence when it comes to the screen, but when it comes to the size of it, it really can be useful to have that extra space. Samsung has proven through the Note series, that big screens sell, and...
Cons: Small internal storage, Only dual-core, No Full HD display, Expensive, As Galaxy Mega is going to be put up against the flagship phones, we were left feeling a little disappointed that the 1.7GHz processor behind the screen is only a dual-core. Whilst it might have been able to cope with the majo...
Excerpt: Never let it be said that Samsung leaves a niche unfilled. After the Galaxy S4 Mini , designed for those who feel the Galaxy S4 is just too big, we have the perfect phone for people who feel a five-inch phone looks like a silly little toy: the almighty 6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega.
Samsung Galaxy Mega review: Big screen, but short on storage
14 October 2013
Summary: Summary: The 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega isn't easy to carry around or use one-handed and is short on internal storage. Having said that, it's the obvious handset for anyone who likes Samsung's 'Android-on-steroids' approach and is attracted by the Galaxy Note 3's size, but doesn't need stylus support.
Pros: Large 6.3-inch screen, Excellent battery life, Lots of Samsung extras
Cons: Too little internal shortage, Too large for easy one-handed operation, Moderate screen resolution, Outclassed by the Galaxy Note 3
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Mega GT-I9205 is a very special smartphone. The large 6.3-inch screen will be too big and heavy for many. The smartphone does not fit in your pocket, and you need two hands to operate it. This does not make it an ideal camera for daily use.
Conclusion: It's bigger than the S4, and comes with a lower spec. It's also a little bigger but not as versatile as the Galaxy Note 2 and doesn't have that capable phone's stylus, so the Mega is a device that's too big to be a standard phone and not quite big enough to pass muster as a tablet.
Pros: Huge screen, decent camera, latest version of Android
Excerpt: However, Samsung is marketing the Galaxy Mega as a smartphone, claiming it's ideal for those who want their phone to offer a big-screen media experience. But does anyone really want a 6.3in phone? We went hands-on with the device to find out.
