Product Description

Product Description

The Samsung Galaxy Mega combines the portability and convenience of a smartphone with the power, multitasking capabilities and extensive viewing experience of a tablet. The newest addition to the Galaxy family, it balances an optimal viewing experience on a 6.3 inch HD screen, yet is ultra-thin and portable enough to put into a pocket or hold in one hand. The Galaxy Mega offers a mix of popular smartphone and tablet features such as an effortless user experience, a split screen, multitasking between video and other apps and more.

The Galaxy Mega is an ideal choice for customers who want to get the most out of one device that brings great quality at an even greater value. With a Super Clear HD LCD screen with landscape mode support, the Galaxy Mega enables an exceptional widescreen view for various applications including web browsing, video, and SNS. Despite its size, the handset is light and thin for incredible portability and easy, convenient mobile phone use. Customers can stay connected with a variety of new phone features including ‘Group Play’ (which enables easy content sharing for up to 8 devices on the same Wi-Fi network), ‘Samsung WatchON’ (transforms the handset into an IR remote controller for a richer TV experience), and ‘S Translator’ (say or text what you need translated, and it will provide instant translation using text or voice translation on applications including email, and ChatON).

Galaxy Mega users will accomplish more with the rich, interactive experience and increased usability of the widescreen mode. Split screen capability for a variety of applications including email, messages, ‘MyFiles,’ ‘S Memo,’ ‘S Planner’, and more, makes for increased efficiency. With the popular ‘Air View’ feature, customers can preview information in emails, photos in Gallery, and speed dial contacts.

The Galaxy Mega is equipped with an enhanced 8 MP rear-facing camera and a 1.9 MP front-facing camera, along with a variety of camera modes including ‘Drama Shot’ (merging continuous shots of a moving object), ‘Sound & Shot’ (captures 9 seconds of sound and voice together as the picture is taken to capture moments), ‘Rich tone,’ ‘Sports’ and more. The device also packs various newly-introduced features for endless entertainment, including ‘S Travel’ and ‘Story Album’.

The Galaxy Mega runs the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean experience, and features a dual core processor and spacious internal storage (with up to 64 Gb expandable memory to store favourite apps, music, videos, photos and more). The advanced software also facilitates more efficient processor use for improved battery life, meaning users can enjoy longer talk time and multimedia use.

    Pretty well every review I have read about this product (and I've read a lot) has mentioned its astonishing size as a smartphone and gone on to discuss the pros and cons of that, compared with the size of any other smartphone the reviewer has previously owned.
    I'm coming from a different direction, as I happened upon the Samsung Galaxy Mega while I was looking for a lightweight tablet. In fact, when I first clapped eyes on it, that was what I thought it was - a lightweight (less than 200 grammes) and manageably sized tablet, which would (a) fit into my handbag and (b) get 3G internet access, if I were to feel the need of that (for instance, to find reviews of possible activities or purchases, or get a timetable or download a map) while I was away from home.
    All the other tablets I'd been looking at previously were much heavier. Many did not offer 3G, because (of course) they weren't officially telephones, or if they did offer 3G it still seemed that one had to pay for a costly personal 3G contract to make access from them possible.
    The Galaxy Mega I am able to run as an inexpensive "extra" linked to my home telephone service (with Virgin as it happens, £7 a month for 500 megabytes downloaded which, so far, is very much more than I need) and it functions magnificently as a tablet.
    So far, it does everything I require. How successful it would be for me as a sole mobile phone, I am not sure. Personally, I am still using my tiny £25 Nokia for that - on pay-as-you-go, Virgin doesn't provide two services to one subscriber! - because that has the phone number everybody knows for me, and also because I don't think I would want to carry the Mega round all the time.

    I bought this for my daughter instead of the Samsung Note 3 as the note 3 was nearly twice the price.
    It is just a little bit bigger than the note 3 and has much the same functionality.
    She is really happy with it and very impressed with the design and usability, so that is all that counts.

    I bought this in October 2013. Before I bought this, I looked at note 3 and Sony Ultra Z. Note 3 was way too expensive for features that I wasn't going to use, e.g. s pen, drawing graphs, etc.

    Sony ultra, though very good. has not been configured correctly by Sony to make most of that large screen, e.g. even if you set the font to largest, they still look only as big as those on Samsung S3.

    This Mega has to be the best phablet in the market for the following reasons.

    1. The price - for 280 pounds on amazon, nothing can come close to the screen size, RAM and the various advanced features.
    2. The screen - though of a lower quality than the usual super amoled displays that Samsung has, I find it better in terms of colour and brightness. It is much soothing than super-saturated super amoled screens.
    3. The speed- the speed is noticeably better than galaxy S3 which is meant to be higher end than this one.
    4. the browsing experience - that super size screen gives very good browsing experience and use of apps. You can increase the fonts to your choice and read without squinting. Unfortunately, samsung's default browser does not do text reflow if you zoom in more than the automatic double tap zoom. However, I installed Opera Beta browser from the marketplace and reflow works great.
    5. Battery life -This is great considering the size of the screen. It seems to be better than Samsung S3.

    Cons -
    1. If I have to then I can say the size, which works as a pro and as a con as well. You might have difficulty in putting this in tight jeans, however my office trouser it fits fine. - also let's face it. 9 months of 12 in a year, we wear a jacket of some sort, no problem putting your phone in there!

    I recently got this phone after smashing up my S3 I would highly recommend my hands are quite small and the phone fits easy it's not hard to use and it's very easy to get used to the size might throw you off but it's amazing and also really good for reading we pages as you see everything on the display due to the 6.3 inch screen the battery life is also very good and lasts more then a day

    Really, really happy with my decision to purchase this item. It is very glam and attractive - I've had so many comments and questions about it. People actually think I'm carry around an ipad mini, and my colleagues joke that it is my new 40 inch TV :) I know I sound like a crazy phone person, but I'm not at all.

    It is an upgrade from my S3, so I found it simple to use...plus there are some new amazing features, which I like alot... :-)

    It is quite a large phone, but still a very slim phone....I really like that it is so easy to find in my massive handbags, whereas my S3 would get lost and I'd always miss my calls.

    I also like the large screen, as when I am looking at web pages, I have no need to scroll around so much to see the entire page.

    It is well worth the buy!

    this phone tablet is amaising the only thing which could be a little bit inconvenient is the fact that it does nt fit into your pocket but I got used to it. You can watch a movie without any problem and for me the best is that you do nt wait to surf on internet the pages open immediately which is important for me. I love it
