OMG. Look at the size lol. Definitely a great choice over any 7' tablet. Samsung surely knows how to fill the gaps. If priced right, these phones are gimme sell like hot cakes for no doubt. Would love to have my hands over that 6.3 version. Specs are great indeed. Much better than any current tablet on the market, the main target of these giants. Samsung Rocks. Mega over any 7' extra burden anyday.

Galaxy Mega 6.3 look set to become 3rd Mega Hits for Samsung after Galaxy S and Note series.

The 1.5GB RAM was adequate for 720p resolution screen and the A15 dual core CPU, 8MP camera wasn't too shabby at all, at least better than the HTC One 4MP so-called "Ultra-Pixel" jokes.

I only hope was, it battery life can last long at least like my Galaxy Note 2.

Currently I'm struggling to replace my Galaxy Note2 LTE with,
1. Get the new Galaxy S4 + Galaxy Note 8.0 before Galaxy Note 3.
2. Keep Galaxy Note2 LTE, and get Galaxy Note 8.0 and continue to wait for Galaxy Note 3.

But with new Samsung annoucement, think I'll probably replace my Galaxy Note 2 LTE with Galaxy Mega 6.3.

Btw, I'm a Galaxy Tab 7.0 (1st Gen) phone user before. I really don't mind a All-In-One Galaxy Mega 6.3 LTE, so that I do not have to carry 2 devices anytime, anywhere.

In the meanwhile, I'll continue to struggle... before Galaxy Mega 6.3 LTE actually available.

They are not the galaxy note successor. I'm waiting for the next galaxy note and hope it would also have two versions 5.8 and 6.3 inches. I may chose the 6.3 if it is not too big :)
