Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 

Released June, 2013
  • Android 4.4.2
  • 4G
  • 6.3"
  • Dual core 1.7 GHz
With all this talk about screen size, we have to commend the Mega 6.3 design on being very space efficient, the ratio of screen to front surface area is very high.
by GSM Arena (May, 2013)
Needless to say, browsing on the 6.3” display is a joy - due to its sheer size, it's akin to browsing on one of the smaller tablets, no kidding.

Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3


7.0
The phone has the usual features: Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC and dual band WiFi 802.11ac.

7.5
Color representation seems vivid, though not OLED-style saturated and the display has very good viewing angles, but could use more brightness and less reflectivity outside under direct sunlight.

8.0
It's got good colour reproduction, and the lack of resolution on the large screen doesn't make as much of a difference in use as we thought it might.

Overall

7.7 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is great for viewing photos - the screen is as big as most photo frames and the lower resolution doesn't really show.
by GSM Arena (May, 2013)
With “just” HD resolution of the display and its average brightness it should get you through day and a half or two of normal usage, but Samsung is yet to post official talk times in 3G and standby modes.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
Because of a reasonably modest screen resolution of just 1280 x 720, the phone has a decent-sized font, and nothing looks too small to read.
by PocketLint (Sep, 2013)

Size

The display panel actually makes it a great phone for browsing the web, watching videos, reading, editing pics and getting things done with the multi-window mode, due to sheer diagonal.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
This is an Android smartphone with a 6.3" display that's closer in size to a 7" tablet than a smartphone, though it cuts a significantly smaller figure than tablets.
by MobileTechReview (Aug, 2013)
These benefits are handy for the operating system, but the extra screen size also makes web browsing a terrific experience too.
by PocketLint (Sep, 2013)

Video

The camera app offers the newest interface from Samsung, with Best Photo, Drama and HDR modes, as well as a variety of scenes and color effects for your pics and videos.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
This is not a sassy Full HD panel, yet it is a far cry from the 480x800 pixels abomination on the 5” Galaxy Grand, for instance.
by PhoneArena (May, 2013)
It plays XviD, MP4 and MKV files of up to 1080p resolution, but DivX is not supported.
by GSM Arena (May, 2013)

Apps

Samsung's Touchwiz modifications - the company's take on the Android OS - keep things simple, although if you were really interested in a phone that's slightly more accessible then you might want to avoid Samsung handsets because they duplicate all of the app, music and video stores with the company's own app versions.
by PocketLint (Sep, 2013)
It's fantastic for web browsing, and games like Real Racing 3 run well, and look impressive.
by PocketLint (Sep, 2013)
Benchmarking it reveals pretty run-of-the-mill results, but the chipset does its job well, without lag or stuttering in the interface or while loading apps.

Battery

Conclusion From the looks of it, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 design and weight is an achievement for such an enormous screen size and a huge 3200 mAh battery pack inside.

The battery blocks the way, so you have to pull it out to change one of the cards.
