Review Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 I9200 Smartphone

 

Mega-sized and mega-good? Users who think that 5-inch smartphones

Very large and bright display; Great viewing angle stability; Many ways of operation; Ample wireless connectivity; Plenty of additional software included; Lots of accessories; Case doesn't get hot; Very good battery life

Not a lot of optional accessories; Operation can be confusing; System and 3D performance is just average; Comparatively low resolution; Case is not very sturdy

How many features Samsung carried over from the high-end Galaxy S4.

if you want to carry a single device that provides “tablet-level” comfort and smartphone-level utility and reliability, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 ($530, street price) is the best such device today. Right now, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 is simply unchallenged in...

Samsung Galaxy Mega Preview

 

Samsung Galaxy Mega Preview | we got our hands on this yet to be released Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, so here are our first impressions

We wouldn’t be surprised if in the future, Samsung would press harder in this category if the success is as great as the company hopes it will be. The Galaxy Mega may not be a “specs” phone, but in most cases, when it comes to large display...

Samsung Galaxy Mega (Sprint)

 

The Samsung Galaxy Mega offers a big screen and fast speeds on Sprint's Spark LTE service for a low price.

Big vibrant display; Swift LTE speeds on Sprint's Spark network; Loud speakers; Above-average battery life; Great multitasking features

Not one-hand-friendly; Slower performance than some competing phones

Made for the budget-conscious shopper looking for a tablet and phone in one device, the $99 Galaxy Mega packs plenty of features, speedy Spark LTE throughput, a large screen and a long-lasting battery. However, because this is a midtier device, you'll...

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 review

 

A couple years back, when the original Samsung Galaxy Note dwarfed the iPhone, many in the tech press mocked it, calling it a “phablet,” and predicted they wouldn't catch on beyond, perhaps, those with large hands. We weren't super fond of them either,...

Massive screen looks good and is great for everything ; Great battery life ; Expandable storage via MicroSD card

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

The Galaxy Mega is a big-screen smartphone for the masses. With a surprisingly good screen, stellar battery life, and good-enough performance, it's a massive mid-range device that leans more toward tablet than phone.

AT&T Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Review

 

As the AT&T iteration of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 hits the market, there's a surprisingly accepting atmosphere for devices with displays of all sizes. Back in 2011 when the original Samsung Galaxy Note was introduced, it was considered daring – a...

Meanwhile for those just looking at the AT&T collection of smartphones deciding which one is best: there’s really nothing that matches the Galaxy Mega 6.3 with this carrier at the moment, nothing save the Galaxy Note II – and eventually the Galaxy Note...

Samsung Galaxy Mega

 

The Samsung Galaxy Mega combines a supersize screen and long battery life in a midrange phablet.

Ginormous display with rich vibrant color; Good battery life; Loud audio; Fast 4G LTE speeds; Doubles as TV remote

Difficult to use with one hand; Lacks features and gestures found on GS4; Some lag at times

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,...

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3

 

For a phone that's all screen, you'd expect the enormous 6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega to dazzle. It certainly joins mammoth smartphones like the Galaxy Note 2 , LG G2 , Huawei Ascend Mate , and Sony Xperia Z Ultra as an option for people who would...

Samsung's Galaxy Mega 6.3 has a great price, runs Android 4.2.2, and comes with an 8-megapixel camera and extras like a TV remote.

The phone's large size makes it unwieldy, and its screen resolution is too low for a phone this big.

Samsung's Galaxy Mega 6.3 is just about your only choice for a jumbo-screen phablet under $200, but those with more flexible budgets should consider a phone with a higher-resolution display.

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 review: one giant smartphone for mankind

 

Godzilla, Frankenstein's monster and Bigfoot are mythical creatures that don't exist (although you might dispute the latter). But now, an equally beastly

Huge screen, decent display quality ; Sensational battery life ; Good video capture ; Louder sound than on competing phones

One-handed operation nearly impossible ; Some GS4 features are missing

The Mega is a respectable mid-range device, but it's too large for anyone who wants to sometimes use their phone one-handed.

Galaxy Mega 6.3 vs. Ascend Mate: Shadows of giants

 

Back when phones were just phones, a couple of buttons and an earpiece were enough. Now we try to pump our entire lives through our smartphones and a big screen is a must. With the new 6+ inch phablets happy to oblige, pocket size is bigger than ever...

If you go back to count the individual wins, you'll find that the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 won most of the challenges. But it's no secret that you can get a better device for more money and, unfortunately for the Mega 6.3, it costs more than the Galaxy...
