Galaxy Mega

Samsung's Galaxy Mega was a quirky phone-tablet hybrid that arrived on AT&T last summer, and now it appears there may be a follow-up in the works, as multiple reports suggest a 6-inch Mega 2 is in development.

The model number SM-G570 has shown up in previous reports tied to an AT&T-bound device, and Twitter leaker @evleaks now says the device "self-identifies as 'Mega 2.'" The claim is backed up by a recent report from GSMArena in which the site says an insider source provided details of several upcoming Samsung phones, including the G750, which carries a 6-inch 720p display. References to a 6-inch G750 can also be found in India's Zauba import database, having arrived from South Korea for testing.

The 6-inch screen size would be a step down from the 6.3 inches of the original Mega — though remember there was also a lower-specced 5.8-inch version of the device sold in some countries. In any case, we'll have to wait and see whether these reports bear fruit, and if so whether the G750 is the only "Mega" model available this year.

That's a good point. I've got a Nexus 5, and it really stretches one-handed use; I thought of going with a Note 3 but that would've been too big for me. A few people at my office who're older have Note 3's and love them because the display is so big. I love the 'bigger is better' aspect of the Note 3, but I'm kind of glad I didn't end up going with it.....of course, had I picked one up for good, I'm sure I'd be singing its praises without reserve :)

I agree it is big, but it is the perfect phone for my 75 year old mom. She hated her flip phone and she was unable to use an iPhone because it was too small. The screen is perfect for her, and now she is able to play games, read books and skype with me whenever she wants to.

It's not a phone for most, but it is perfect for some.

But this phone is supposed to be big. The m8 is longer then most phones and then to make matters worst the put the power button on top.

This phone is supposed to be big, though. Period. If it's too big for you, then don't buy it. My little brother has it, though. It's the perfect size device for him. There is a market for people that want these size devices, even if you don't like them.

I'm not that big, lol. He's slightly taller than me, and I'm more muscular than him. But, we both have really big hands.

Having owned the Mega 6.3" whilst the phone itself was OK, the Size just made it unpractical. This will be more of the same.

In my opinion the Note 3 is my limit and my Z2 is even better :-)

Why not have another option in screen size.
I messed around with one in store for a while. I was actually half tempted to make the switch. The only thing that stopped me was the lower specs and no S pen. With the progression of the Note series, I am sure we will be on our way to a 6 inch Note.
I am looking forward to that!

After owning all three Note devices I could not own a phone now without the s-pen. After using a Note for nearly 3 years now the s-pen is such an integral part of how I use my phone.

However, I was tempted to buy a Galaxy Mega because I simply liked the size. But in the end, without the s-pen I could not make the jump.

The Mega is the perfect phone for some or Samsung wouldn't be making a sequel, but it's not (no phone is) for everyone.
