Samsung Galaxy Mega official on AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular this month
If you have been worried sick that the US is left out of Samsung's Mega race, you can sleep tight this evening, as AT&T just announced it will be carrying the Galaxy Mega 6.3 starting August 23.

Actually everyone is calling it just Galaxy Mega in their respective press releases, and Samsung adds it will also be available on Sprint and US Cellular "this month". Sprint will bundle it with Unlimited Guarantee plans, whereas on AT&T the phone will cost $24.99 with Next, or $149.99 on a two-year contract.

The Galaxy Mega sports a giant 6.3" HD LCD display, 1.7 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400, 8 MP camera and a huge 3200 mAh battery. We just did our comparison of Samsung's "budget" phablet to the premium Xperia Z Ultra, if you want to know what you are getting into with the Galaxy Mega, which will be available in Nova Back and Polaris White in the US market.

$150 for that!?!?! I call free on contract because of poor sales within 3 months.

Free on contract would be basically a steal. Obviously not going to happen.

US Cellular is like rank 7 in subs. Where I live I know their coverage is horrible

It's garbage in Chicago. Sprint performs better than they do, and that's saying a lot.

kind of Ironic really since US Cellular's HQ is in Chicago. BTW they are selling that market off to Sprint, so US Cellular will be gone, Sprint will hopefully improve there.

Wait until Apple make one like this size, then it would be perfect for you.

I think I will get this. I'm looking for a large screen phone. This meant a Note series. I can't justify $300 for a Note 3 so I was looking at the Note 2. This may be even cheaper. The display is almost as good. I don't care about a stylus. Mega, your on my radar.

I might also get it because of the big screen plus it's cheaper. But then again I already bought the S4 and I'm no Bill Gates sooo a maybe for me.

It looks like the Galaxy Mega is a nice mid range smartphone for those who dont have the money to pay for the Note II or the upcoming Note III. Im too much of a "internal specs" guy to not go after this phone when im ready to upgrade in december. Im looking forward to the Note 3, Nokia Phablet, and the even the HTC phablet

i dont mind these specs on the mega 6.3. i currently have a LG Optimus L9 and i use it mainly for watching streaming videos (clean 720p, no lag and unlimited data with tmobile), browsing some of my favorite website, checking emails and txting...none of which requires the latest and greatest specs and it works great for what im using it for......... im hoping tmobile will get this phone, if not, then i will buy an unlocked version which is currently selling for 460.00 at negri...way way way cheaper than current or upcoming android phones that cost/will cost 700.00+
