Galaxy Mega 6.3 to become available with MetroPCS on November 25

The largest representative of the Samsung Galaxy line, the Galaxy Mega 6.3, will soon hit MetroPCS stores. Scheduled for release on November 25, the 4G LTE phablet offers one of the largest screens out there, along with a resolution of 720 x 1280, resulting in a so-so pixel density of 233 ppi. It's a good solution for people who would rather have one device with them than carry both a tablet and a smartphone.

The Galaxy Mega 6.3 on MetroPCS will have a price-tag of $499. Fortunately, you can benefit from MetroPCS' holiday refund of $100 and get the phablet for $399. Moreover, if you are a new customer and opt to buy the Galaxy Mega straight from a MetroPCS store, you can rebate another $50 and get it for $349.

"MetroPCS wants consumers to get the most for their money, and by eliminating the need and cost of two separate devices and delivering a premium 4G LTE mobile experience for as low as $40 a month, we're providing quality and value in a mega way," said Tom Keys, the executive vice president of MetroPCS.

Apart from announcing the impending availability of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, MetroPCS has also said that it's doubling the number of markets where its services are available, starting today. Here's a list with all the new markets:

  • Albuquerque - Santa Fe, NM
  • Cincinnati – Dayton, OH
  • Columbus, OH
  • Denver – Colorado Springs, CO
  • El Paso, Texas – Las Cruces, NM
  • Fayetteville, AR

  • Louisville – Jefferson County, KY
  • Oklahoma City, OK

  • Portland, OR

I saw this phone at Wal-Mart (different carrier) and thought I might like it but this phone is WAAYY too massive. You most likely have to involve both hands, but it still looks cool though.

I got to test it for awhile, and I actually got used to using it. One handed operation is possible for most apps (scrolling, swiping, etc), but typing definitely needs two hands.

I purchased a brand new Samsung Galaxy Mega phone just four days ago. The phone quits charging, even on the new charger provided, and on all the ones in their Metro PCS store. We speak to Jose employee 8735 and he tells us we have to pay the deductible because the "7" day warranty which is supposed to be a "30" day warranty only applies to new customers, not customers who upgrade. So after shelling out $450 for the phone, $730 when accessories and everything was purchased, we now are told to put out another $129 deductible and wait for, possibly a reconditioned one, in the mail.
