Good phone, nice specifications better than earlier reported resolution of 400 X 800 resolution however it would have been better if the ppi was a little better. It is annoying to see a wall paper on galaxy grand ppi 187 ( mega 5.8 ppi 190) resolution 400 X 800, You have to load a very small picture size on wall paper for it to look good on galaxy grand. I hope 540 X 920 resolution will solve the problem in mega 5.8 !
It'd not be right to call this stuff a phone or a phablet. 5'' is enough for most of the people. The screen size is 5.8'' with a resolution of 540x960 and 190 pixels. Are you kidding me? I would have really appreciated the display if it was a 5'' 720p unit or 1080p AMOLED display with some sort of protection glass. The weight of this phone is over 180gm which is not even handy for a phone. I don't think this tablet would fit in my pocket. I have been seeing the same design for over a year now. Samsung, don't you even know of any other design philosophy? I mean seriously, i am bored of seeing the same design over and over again. An unknown dual core processor? I doubt why Samsung hesitated to not reveal chipset. Either it's cheap or just not powerful enough. No FM radio and GPU? The price is 25000 approax.? I doubt if anyone will buy it when there are better options available at this price. Guys please avoid this product and add some more more and buy the HTC One X or Samsung Galaxy S3.
It's better to have a 5 inch mobile with 800x1200 resolution than having this 5.8 inch with this resolution.Not worth it.Also,all Samsung mobiles are copy & paste of one another.
are you kidding me with the resolution?190 ppi terrible.rest everything seems okay. but y not buy grand or quattro instead both have terrible resolutions,but they cost less.voted down!
buy nexus 4 instead.
this mobile has low resolution and only dual core cpu but
high price worth only for Rs. 20,000 and not 25,000
Anonymous, 27 May 2013hi..im confused on 1 thing. whats the role of GPU? ryt nw i hve nokia c5 5 mp, n galaxy ... moredude okay lemme say one thing.you better stay awake untill the release of the s4 mini.it too may be available in dual sim variants and sams and standard configurations as the other samsung galaxy smart phones.It has gotta 8+2 mp camera and 1.6 ghz dual core processor and exynos chipset and thinking so its arround 300 eur~22 - 23k INR you better wait for its release and know reviews and lots more if u cant wait go for galaxy mega because its a bit better than grand......
Today Samsung has officially launched it's Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3 models in India and priced at 25100 and 31500 respectively. I think, Samsung has launched it first only in India.
It is good to have a phone with big screen. But if it too big, it would be difficult to carry and even to use, and so such models may fail. I feel, Samsung Galaxy Grand is the correct size. So here we have to wait and see how Samsung Mega models are going to perform in sales.
Also the price is too high for the given specification. Considering the price and the size, I think, many won't go for these phones. The success rate is just 50-50.
What is your view... Do you like this phone. Are you planning to buy this.
Samsung no doubt has good phones and specs but the designs are dull and boring, wonder if the designers in Samsung are lost out there do know what do to...stuck with the same design for ages now, they need to use metal finish like HTC, chuck this boring design and come out with something neat and eye catching...Edward..!
a day will come when we will see in ads that 'special samsung smartphone trouser free with phone'
