Samsung today announced its new Galaxy Mega smartphones, and boy are they enormous! With screen sizes of 6.3 and 5.8 inches, these devices easily make the Galaxy Note II seem like a small device...

Even though you don't like the iPhone 5, you can't say it is fragile and weak. :)

But it is fragile and weak if you take into consideration the complaints of scratches out of the box, the aluminum shell that bends, the countless shattered screens, how it indirectly tries to kill you with bad navigation...all complaints from actual users.

I know, but "bad navigation" doesn't match the "fragile and weak" topic, and we buy smartphones because we love them, we use them, not smashing them, not pissing on them! :)

i'm pretty sure that a screen shatters if its dropped. i've seen just as many Droid Razrs shatter as iPhones. if its dropped, it can happen. if you are ruling that a manufacturer defect you sir...are an idiot.

Yeah, but what's the point? I looked at the Mega, and it's basically close to being the size of a Nexus 7 tablet. Big screens are nice, but seriously...

Exactly, no idea why you would choose this over the Note 2 - This comparison says it all - versusio.com/en/samsung-galaxy-mega-5-8-vs-samsung​-galaxy-note-2

Yeah, the Galaxy Mega series is way too big. My Note II pushes my acceptance level for phone size to the limit.

Sales on phones don't lie. People like big phones, apple will follow suit on the 5s or the iphone 6 but only 1 step at a time while each year android takes 10 steps.

Ok now Sammy is just going over the Line & Crazy like the Chinese companies....How on earth is someone gonna use such a device as a cellphone ??? it should be a Tablet ..

I think the Cellphone Display should stay at 4 - 5.3 Inch ....This is the One hand useable size....

95. Larry_ThaGr81 (Posts: 294; Member since: 26 May 2011)


I'd sport a 5.5 inch display but any bigger would be too much screen for my comfort level.

the Mega "5.8" & 6.3" are huge for nothing; Note II has a better processor; the megas are dual core; Note II is Quad CORE and battery is 3100, so bigger sometimes is not better...I prefer the NOTE II

57. KingOmar (Posts: 5; Member since: 16 Aug 2012)


Nop, The dual core on the galaxy's mega are exynos 5250 wich is dual A15 wich is more powerful
Where's the galaxy note 2 processor is based on A9 architecture

77. jove39 (Posts: 1261; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)


Right...Exynos 5250 has 2xA15 cores and Mali-604@533mhz...its really fast for 720p screen!

Look at the Mega 5.8' screen, next to the Note 2.
It could fit in the chassis, reducing the bezel to minimum.

In other words, the Note 3 :)

IMO the note 2 is the max size for being a usable cellphone, anything bigger should be a small tablet.
