Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Reviews

80/100

"The Mega is for people who don't really make phone calls, but want access to the internet and things like text messaging as much as possible. As techie geeks, we get this, because phone calls are something we avoid when possible, preferring instead to communicate using email and social media."

"Aside from the sheer difficulty in holding it up to your ear and getting your fingers around the width of the frame, the Galaxy Mega is a solid voice phone. Call sounded clear and rich through the earpiece, and I didn't have to position my head just so to hear the caller properly, either. My own voi..."

"Samsung does deserve some praise on the physical size of the Mega 6.3; its dimensions are actually quite impressive. At 167.6mm tall, 88mm wide, and 8mm thick, it’s 16.5mm taller and 7.5mm wider than the Galaxy Note II, but it’s also 1.4mm thinner. And despite all that extra material, it weighs 199g..."

"One of the Mega’s best tricks is running two apps at once in a split screen. You can have email and the browser displayed simultaneously, for instance. But the effect is lost when you need to type: the on-screen keyboard pops up and takes half the split screen."

"Due to the size of the device, I often found I’d taken a blurry photo as I’d inadvertantly move the device while hitting the button, regardless of whether I used the on-screen button or the volume key to trigger the shot. You could get around this with some voice-activated camera software, or by res..."

"The speaker sounds loud and crisp, and we were able to crank out more than enough noise from our movies and music to stay happy. Even though the earpiece was a little quieter, it was still sufficient. All of our calls went through perfectly, with no drops or hiccups. GPS performance was also more th..."

"The Samsung Galaxy Mega comes with a similar feature to the Galaxy S4 in the shape of a high power touchscreen than allows you to use gloves with the device, and also gives you Air View. This function allows you to hover a finger over things like photo albums or calendar entries to see more of what'..."

"There's no question that the Mega is more of a two-handed device. We found ourselves struggling to reach all the way across the screen, and other times we had to reposition the phablet in our hand during use. However, we like that Samsung includes a one-hand-friendly dialpad you can place on either ..."

"Call quality was pretty good overall to land lines and cell phones, though clarity can and will vary from phone to phone and even at different points throughout the day."

"It's not good at being a phone, and it's not good at being a tablet. It is, in short, not good. If you're really into big phones and need something right now, go for the Galaxy Note II, which is plenty big and actually is a good phone. Or, better yet, wait just a few more weeks when we expect the Ga..."

"A friend jokingly said that it was bigger than her head as she held it up to her ear. A cousin called it ridiculous. A co-worker pointed out that cellphones used to be big, too - in the 1970s."

"Using the phone in one hand tends to feel a little clumsy, awkward and precarious. Your thumb has to stretch to reach most of the screen, and much of it is simply too far away to reach at all. This not only makes the phone harder to wield, but also a bit easier to drop. "

"The Samsung Galaxy Mega, while capable and powerful, is not a phone I would ever choose to purchase or use myself. It's simply too big. Where the Note II lives on the edge, the Mega leaps right over into the land of Can't Fit My Hand. Aside from the size, the hardware is decent. It's a good looking ..."
