Here's exactly how much bigger the Samsung Galaxy Mega is compared to the Note II, S4 and other popular smartphones
Samsung today announced its new Galaxy Mega smartphones, and boy are they enormous! With screen sizes of 6.3 and 5.8 inches, these phones easily make the Galaxy Note II seem like a small device... and it definitely isn't! Really, these guys actually look more like small tablets rather than big smartphones, but hey, that's what we first thought of the original Galaxy Note, so who knows, that might as well be the new standard in a few months! Yes, we're only joking.

So, the new devices are big. We know that they are very, very big... but exactly how big are they? We can never have a good understanding until we can see them side to side with some of the popular smartphones out there, so that's exactly what we're going to do right now. Below you can see the new Mega 6.3 and Mega 5.8 phones right next to the Note II, Galaxy S4, One, iPhone 5, Xperia Z and Lumia 920. And we have to tell you, folks, the moment we saw this comparison, that's when we realized how MASSIVE these guys are. Anyways, don't let us keep admiring their sheer size - tell us what you think about the Mega brothers! Has Samsung finally crossed the line? Could the Megas use some more screen?

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

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...

Big screen poor hardware, skip.

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.

Just wait til next year when HTC makes this size. I heard the same stuff when Samsung release 4.8" and now everybody making 5". Soon Apple too.

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.
