88% Review Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 I9200 Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Mega-sized and mega-good? Users who think that 5-inch smartphones like the HTC One are not quite big enough will be delighted with Samsung's Galaxy Mega and its 6.3-inch display. In the following review, we'll discover that the phablet has more to offer than just a large screen.
80% Samsung Galaxy Mega
Source: Laptop Mag English
Made for the budget-conscious shopper looking for a tablet and phone in one device, the $99 Galaxy Mega packs plenty of features, speedy Spark LTE throughput, a large screen and a long-lasting battery. However, because this is a midtier device, you'll have to be willing to settle for a lower-res display than those found on other flagships (720p) and a slower dual-core CPU.

AT&T Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Review
Source: Slashgear English
The Samsung Galaxy Note 6.3 is not a tablet disguised as a smartphone, no matter how much it would appear to be one. Instead you’ve got a massive handset made for those users that have out-of-the-ordinary needs. Perhaps you’re professional basketball player that’s twice the size of the average human. Maybe you’re in need of a large display to play movies on your frequent airplane trips and the Galaxy Note II just isn’t cutting it.

Samsung's Galaxy Mega lives up to its name. For some, this 6.3-inch will reek of tech frivolity, but those looking to combine the size of a tablet with the functionality of a phone will appreciate what this phablet has to offer. As a multimedia device, the Mega is great for watching video and playing games (as long as they're not too demanding).

60% Samsung Galaxy Mega review: 'It doesn't fit in my pants'
Source: TechHive.com English
The Galaxy Mega’s size and reasonable $150 (on contract) price might work for a student looking to cram a phone and a tablet into a very tight hardware budget. But unless Samsung manages to carve out its own niche market for absurdly big phones, I can’t see the Galaxy Mega making waves. In the end, it guarantees that Samsung has a smartphone of every single size imaginable—but is that a good enough reason to unleash yet another phone into the wild?

Samsung Mega 6.3: A Very Large Phone indeed
Source: Reg Hardware English
What we have here is a Very Large Phone with a slightly mid-range specification. I can see the logic behind that. Wanting a huge screen doesn’t necessarily mean that you also want a quad-core chip that can power a Boeing 777 or a screen resolution beyond the range of human visual acuity. The Mega 6.3 combines a big screen with a reasonable price, solid performance and excellent battery life so if you are after a device that will fulfil the role of both phone and tablet without demanding too much in the way of compromise in either direction the Mega 6.3 is that device, especially for 375 quid.

70% Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 review: gigantic 6.3in touchscreen phablet
Source: PC Advisor English
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is a mid-range smartphone with a gigantic 6.3in touchscreen. It offers excellent battery life and 4G connectivity, but performance is a mixed bag and it's impossible to use single-handedly.

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3
Source: Engadget English
The Galaxy Mega is a very solid mid-range device, but the phone's make-or-break trait is -- you guessed it -- the size. If you prefer (or require) the ability to use your smartphone one-handed most of the time, you're not going to have a satisfactory experience.

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Review
Source: Ubergizmo English
As we took a deep look inside the usage model of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, we have been able to clarify nearly most important questions raised after our initial hands-on experience a couple of months ago. First of all, the decision of getting the Galaxy Mega should be driven by the form-factor which is the single most important differentiator for this handset. If you don’t like BIG phones, this is most definitely not for you.

70% Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 (GT-I9152) Review

The Samsung Galaxy Mega is a smartphone too big. Most consider 4.5 to 4.7 inch to be an ideal size for a smartphone for both comfortable and single handed use. A 5 incher can still be a bit comfortable for some and the Mega 5.8 is definitely a king-size smartphone. Now imagine using the Mega 6.3 on your ear, which is almost like using a tablet to make calls. However, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 is well-priced—for a blend of a smartphone and a tablet in a single device.
