i think samsung is trying to give a midrange phone to people who want to use their tablet as a phone. some people say 7" screen is a tad too big, well galaxy mega is the answer and i think it would do well in developing countries. galaxy grand is a really big hit here in indonesia because of the big screen size and yet cheaper price than the higher end models like s3 and note 2

ricky people love big screen, but a phone with Mega screen is to much, do you know average high of indonesian men they are not tall and big enough to use this device as a smartphone, and i don't think this mega phone is gonna be cheap

Samsung made money from large screen phones like Galaxy S2, Note, S3 and NoteII now being too greedy now and going over he top now.

Lol oh yeah some really interesting stuff from Samsung, they are huge but I'd like the 6.3 just too see how many people would take notice of me when I'm talking on the Phablet (coz right now I'm not getting any weird stares when talking on my galaxy note 2). Otherwise the specs are okay and they have the latest version of andriod and touchwiz (for those who like it anyway)

it doesn't look ugly...it looks like an oversized S3. so the innovation argument is out the window. each version is appears to be the steroid version of the previous model.

Samsung needs to concentrate more on innovation, and less on Size.. Those things will look clumsy on someone's ear..

I would love to see the Mega 6.3 next to the HP Veer... the Mega 6.3's home button is probably larger than the Veer.

Why Samsung? May as well call them the Galaxy Tab phone....but then like the Galaxy Tab, no one would buy one.

It's basically an overpriced tablet with cellular capabilities. If Samsung doesn't reduce the price by 50 percent this thing will flop hard.

I really gotta say though even if size is not all that matters, one does have to take notice when comparing phone size and seeing the huge difference. That said, it may not be for everyone so Ill have the note 2 kindly but never go with something as small as the iphone 5 again.

Please stop calling mega 6.3 as phablet or smartphone, it's tablet and should be referred as one......... Instead of comparing mega 6.3 to smartphones, you should have compared it to all 7" & 8" tablets........... It is not necessary that if a device is having calling capability then it should be called as smartphone or phablet, if it's venturing into tablet category, then it should be reffered as one. Even Galaxy note 10.1, galaxy tab 7.0, tab 2 7.0 etc have calling capability, but they are not compared with smartphones........... So phonearena do the size comparison of mega device with small tablets...........

Well Note is no longer THAT big!

Apparently Samsung's policy is to create a new trend of big screens where they definitely have experience and history. While the Megas are HUGE and probably not many will go for them it is almost sure more will go for larger screens like the Note for example. Did you see how many ladies are looking to buy Notes? I first thought Note is a guy thing, being huge and all... But NO! Ladies are into them too ...

The Mega 6.3 actually looks the same size has the 5.8, just that the bezels are smaller and the screen is larger. So why would anyone get the 5.8 when it's just as tall and narrow as the 6.3 but with a smaller screen?

I am not impressed with these specs at all. Im glad the screen size has increased, but whats the deal with the crappy camera, processor, resolution and pixel density? I mean, I thought Samsung was about moving forward, not backwards. I'm really saddened by this. I hope something changes by the time these phones come out. That Sony Togari is looking like more, and more of a sure bet.
