Features Key features of the Galaxy Mega 5.8  vs Grand 

screen size

If a large screen is what you need and if you don't demand on having dual-SIM functionality, it would be worth going for the Samsung Galaxy Note II, which might be more expensive, but will provide you with a much better user experience overall.

The 5.7" handset will have a dual-SIM version and while its four Cortex-A7 cores aren't all that great, the 720p resolution of its screen is definitely a huge upgrade over what the Mega 5.8 has.

Within the general mapping application, the dual core processor was never going to be perfectly smooth moving in and out; there was slight slowdown, but nothing that we found to be a hindrance.

camera resolution

It is a testament to the fact that sensor size isn't something that can accurately be relied upon as a measurement of a camera's image quality.

Reviews Word on the street

Galaxy Mega 5.8  vs Grand 

The 5” panel on the Grand DUOS is with decent viewing angles and bright enough, so you can tell what's on it outside under direct sunlight, thus the big drawback remains its low pixel density.
