Galaxy Mega 6.3

Full spec listings for the new 5.8- and 6.3-inch smartphones

Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Mega series, two new mid-range Android phones with ridiculously large screens. The Galaxy Megas' hardware isn't exactly high-end, but they're nothing to sniff at either. In particular the 6.3-inch version boasts a HD screen and LTE connectivity, and a sleeker overall design.

We've got the full spec sheet for both Galaxy Mega devices after the break.

Preposterous! What's next? VCR sized?

what's a VCR?

VDub2174 says:

What was that? I was listening to my walkman.

Lekoq Grande says:

whats a walkman I was listening to my eight track

Jayq330 says:

That's like the old beeper days & it makes then look desperate....I used to think portable meant you can carry it around in hand/pocket, but they're bringing a while new definition to the whole portable smartphone gig, it's bigger with cheaper slower chipset's?

Chris Routh says:

I dunno, 'pocket sized' has always been a relevant term. My choice of clothing leads me to have large pockets.. I also don't drive so having pockets is always a 100% requirment of any clothing I buy. I have pockets in my shirts and jackets that will hold a phone like that just fine, and then I would be able to do more with my phone. I find that the screen on my S3 is often too small for tasks I'd like to do or games I'd like to play, and carrying a tablet and a phone is cumbersome while taking public transpo.

I'm the kind of person they are targeting with this.

Darth Spock says:

What's the argument for getting the smaller of the two? Vastly inferior in this comparison. It'd be interesting to slide the larger in with the people considering an S4 and Note 8.0 to see if the hybrid meets snuff (A lot of compromises in my opinion, but the cost savings might be worth it to some), but I can't see a winning argument for the lesser of the two when it's so far behind the other.

That being said, I'm intrigued by the idea of this basic form factor (the larger) without the ridiculous physical buttons. I'm sure some high up design engineer is reading these comments, so if so: MAKE IT HAPPEN!

XChrisX says:

Was hoping these would be higher end with better specs. Looks like I'll be waiting for the Note 3. I guess this could rule out the idea that the Note 3 will have a 6.3" display.

thdarkshadow says:

Wow 6.3" that's nexus 7 territory! It does seem odd to have mid range specs for being so huge. I guess they just don't want it to take sales away from the note line

maerlim says:

For when you absolutely positively need the biggest screen on the block.

VDub2174 says:

Can someone just make a 10" phone and get it over with?

arundc says:

LOL good one! I have a Note 2 (love it) but this is fvck!ng ridiculous :-)

Dperks17 says:

Getting the 6.3

Eclectech says:

These phones are only for someone who is lacking in other areas.

sspirall says:

...or, someone who's well endowed and has hands proportionate to being 6'1" tall but won't settle for owning "just a tablet" when a phone can be built in. Geez, after six months this all-in-one Galaxy Note already feels small.
