Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8

Description

The Galaxy Mega 5.8 stretches the limits of what we consider a phablet with its humongous 5.8-inch display. The resolution, though, is only the qHD 540 x 960 pixels which works out to some 199ppi. In simple terms this means the screen is definitely not among the sharpest ones out there and jagged edges and pixelization will definitely be noticeable. While not a high-end device, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 will bring some of the latest features we saw in the Galaxy S4 to those on a tighter budget. The split screen function as well as the new camera modes like Drama Shot and Sound and Shot will come pre-loaded on the device. Samsung’s S Travel and Story Album are among the features that will also make their way onto this handset.

This device is also known as Samsung I9150
