Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Review

 

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Review | this article looks at critical aspects of the Galaxy Mega 5.3 usage model to help you decide if it is your best option

I came into this review thinking that the Mega 5.8 was an odd idea, but I may have judged it too quickly. This phone might extend the “big display phone” market to a much wider audience than the Note line can. If you can get past the low pixel density,...

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 review: Medium extra large

 

Screen size. Just like last year was the year of the multi-core processor, 2013 is surely the year of the big screen. There was a time when 5 inches of diagonal were considered overkill, but with just about every major brand now flaunting a fullHD...

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...

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

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...

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is a member of a rare breed. While it has the specs of a mid-range device, its appearance might make an unassuming buyer think that it's one beast of a phone. That's because its front is occupied by a massive, 5.8-inch...

Large screen makes gaming and watching videos very comfortable ; Decent camera ; Dual SIM phone

Low resolution display ; Occasional performance issues ; Difficult to handle and carry around

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...

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 Review

 

It's difficult to recommend the Galaxy Mega 5.8. To start with you get better specifications from the Huawei Ascend Mate for the same price. Sure, the Mega 5.8 has a good camera; works well as a phone, and features Samsung shenanigans. However, the...

Good camera, Smooth interface, Slew of Samsung preloaded apps

Lacklustre display, Low performance when compared to other phones in the same price range, Lags during heavy gaming

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 review (video)

 

The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is the new kid around town, and we're going to give it the full review treatment! Curious to know more? Read on to find out!

The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is one of those Samsung phones where it’s hard to figure out who exactly it’s for, due to its very niche audience. If you’re looking for an even bigger phone with mid-range specs, the Mega 6.3 outperforms the Mega 5.8 in...

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 (GT-I9152) Review - Tech2

 

Samsung gave the market two variants of the Galaxy Mega with screen sizes 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch displays. We have the 5.8-incher with us.

The Samsung Galaxy Mega is a smartphone too big. Most consider 4.5 to 4.7 inch to be an ideal size for a smartphone for both comfortable and single handed use. A 5 incher can still be a bit comfortable for some and the Mega 5.8 is definitely a...

The Galaxy series from Samsung doesn't look like it will rest or retire any soon. Samsung has been spewing out a new Galaxy variant into the market almost every month to please every possible user. From simple small screen smartphones to king-sized...

Samsung's Galaxy Mega 5.8 is still a big smartphone on a budget. Announced at the same time as its larger brother, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 gets a downgrade in specifications as well as screen size.
