Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 Review
The 8 MP camera module on the back of the Mega 6.3 sports an adjacent LED flash, and is joined by a 1.9 MP unit at the front, capable of HD video recording.
The camera app offers the newest interface from Samsung, with Best Photo, Drama and HDR modes, as well as a variety of scenes and color effects for your pics and videos.
The samples are nothing to write home about, looking soft and with less detail than we'd expect from the resolution. Colors representation is on the oversaturated side, and the phone tends to overexpose brighter spots.
Video is recorded with 1920x1080 resolution at 30 fps, looking fluid, but a bit bland. The Nature UX 2.0 has the shutter key as well as the recording button on one and the same screen, speeding up capture.

Samsung's split-view gallery mode is a godsend on this screen size, too, as you can quickly pick and zoom folders with the images and video content in them. There is a built-in editing option with a rich set of features, and the canvass is really conducive to drawing.
The music player sports the usual abundance of functionality, with a number of equalizer presets, surround sound modes, and the useful Smart Volume and Adapt Sound techs that keep the strength at a predetermined level and offer personalized sound settings for each user. The loudspeaker is pretty strong and with clear and full enough sound.
The phone played every popular format thrown at it, inclusing DivX/Xvid/MKV files, up to Full HD definition, and the player supports subtitles, live zooming, and a number of sharing options, as well as the Pop Up Play function that detaches the video windows and floats it above whatever you are doing with the interface underneath.
