Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 pictured with AT&T branding

0. phoneArena 17 Aug 2013, 17:05 posted on

A tweet sent from evleaks on Saturday reveals a Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 wearing the AT&T brand in a dark blue color; until recently, the handset offered the largest screen on a smartphone, but that was before the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and its 6.4 inch screen came to market. We actually had a clue that the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 would be coming to AT&T when the device visited the FCC back in June, with ATT's 4G LTE bands on board...

It's a shame that almost everyone wraps their phone in a case. How dare they.

You need to go over your fear of plastics. They are used in many products used by all. Cars use quite a bit of plastic. At least Samsung makes their phones sturdy, unlike certain competitors with their 'premium' builds.

I personally don't mind plastic, it's the glossy coating that bothers me. Not only does it look and feel cheap, but it's a fingerprint magnet as well. Certainly not a deal breaker, but I would much rather do without it and have matte plastic.

Also, Samsung phones are definitely not sturdy, at least not the ones I've used. I think the world you're looking for is "durable". Samsung's phone builds are not premium or sturdy, but they are durable.

Plastic is not bad material for a smartphone, but Samsung's HyperGlazed plastic looks really cheap.

Since Samsung devices have removable backs you can buy 3rd party ones that you like better.

Nokia US smartphone marketshare 1.2%. World marketshare less than 4%. Perhaps, instead of laughing at other company's successful products, Nokia can try to learn a thing or two from successful companies.

Dude I have no beef with you, but it's clear what you joined this site to do, and that's start trouble with iOS users. I'm a techie I'm not a fanboy, I'm not gonna go back and forth with you when you decide you wanna pi$$ of iFans like me. One minute you're insulting, the next your cool.

I have nothing against Samsung. And I reached my "goal" successfully, that's why you didn't bother responding, not that you were enjoying whatever you were using. But I didn't join PA just for that.

Already you're pi$$ed off, just look at the second last sentence.

Yes. And I'm not mad at all, you're the one who's mad, look at your comment again.

" Your trolling tactics aren't affecting either jedii or me so I don't know why you're still here." Actually, you're the troll here, your account got suspended because of that, and mine hasn't.

+1 Smurf. Why come to the site just to make enemies of people? Why not just be cool with people, and talk tech? Automatically looking to dislike people, just cuz they may use iOS is just plain silly. He's attacking you just for posting non anti iOS. I get it from him, and I love my note 2 just as much as my iphone5. I'm cool on him personally.

I don't come to the site just for that, and I don't dislike people for that, I dislike the ifans like him who thinks it's ok to make up bull$hit about other products, yet using his Samsung for defence. I saw his comments, he wasn't cool with anyone at all, except his fellow ifans.

I don't even own an iPhone first of all. The last time Apple has gotten a penny from me was in 2009 when I bought a 2nd gen iPod Touch. And I only mention the iPhone when someone brings it up.

Samsung and Apple rule the technology world, and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

I can't take you seriously if you don't know how to form a sentence. The second half of your post was depressing to read.

Go read about how much market share Apple has alongside of Android and come back when you've educated yourself.

"Go read about how much market share Apple has alongside of Android."

That is because their marketing strategy led an average Joe to believe that Apple makes the best phones. But more and more people are opening their eyes, and their market share will soon get replaced by WP.

Oh, the OS that's only grabbed a little over 3% market share since WP7 came out? Lol what a joke. Apple has the best marketing team next to Samsung. Just because they know how to promote their product doesn't mean anything. You simply dont know what you're talking about. What a joke you are.

Actually Samsung rule the technology world as of now. Nokia was the King until Samsung took the lead. I can see it changing soon if Samsung does not change up a little. Apple has never led the tech world but they have led in the USA. I like all three OS's and even palm and black berry. My choice is Windows Phone and I will have the Samsung Ativ S Neo for Sprint this coming week to play with. Choice is good but bashing each other, point less lying, and trolling is not!

Apple had more of a market share than Nokia did in 2010 before Samsung dominated. Nokia led up until Apple knocked them down, followed by Samsung.

You will however never see me attack anyone on this site for what they choose to use, that's plain dumb.

No, I'm talking about the user community. The user community is nothing but trolls and fanboys who spread the gospel of lies. The site has been taken over by Nokia and Sony fanboys that bombard almost every article and troll for no reason.
