Actually, Samsung Mega was one of the finest spiritual predecessor to Note 8 Series.
I still remember how tough and high endurance of this phone to withstand typical daily use physically. Samsung Mega 5.8 will be missed a lot by me. A true epic phone from Sammy.
Sadly, I am having a major conflict with Sammy over their Note FE, Note 10 and Galaxy S9 Plus. Hopefully, Samsung will overcome their major problem with QC on their own hardwares.
It is not that bad to bring back to life the Samsung Mega Series and embedding them on M Series of Samsung.
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2020Where? Which phone?Galaxy Fold2 is 25:9 (outer screen/phone screen) and Galaxy Z Flip/Z Flip 5G are both 22:9 :-)
You will may always miss the biggest phone you owned.
Miss 9:16 aspect ratio wide phones for twin thumb typing being easier. In Long boi era there are very few options(7"+displays) for portrait mode wide keyboards.
I remembered it well when it first came out. I can only imagine people who has lot of money can buy this Mega. Not to mention on that year most of people playing minions game on this phone! Is so satisfying! I always wishes to hands on this phone
wongwatt, 29 Sep 2020Huawei Mate X has a 7.2" screen, it 18.7:9 but still...Of course I mean Mate 20 X...
L.O.R.D, 29 Sep 2020I bought this phone long ago, the screen cracked after two weeks Ouch, that's not good. Thankfully it would have been under warranty, I imagine.
necropedo, 28 Sep 2020Sony Z Ultra is my fav. phone ever. I still have 2 of those. I would buy it again with modern ... moreIt's a fantastic phone. I had a relative who used one for 3 or 4 years. The screen broke (as in the glass front) multiple times but he preferred to have it repaired rather than switch phone. There wasn't really anything in the Xperia lineup to replace it.. nothing quite the same anyway. One of a kind.
My aunt still has this phone. Only have a little minor issue. Works great other than that
Wow a blast from the past!!
My mom and pop still have their MEGAS!!
Of course they don't use them, but still own them!!
"Mega" at the time but it length and display size almost "standard" for a whole phones today.
Had a Dell Streak 5 around 2011 with 5" screen, nobody beleieved me at the time when i said that it was the future, how many smartphones do you know nowadays with 5"?
I most definitely remember when I was first introduced and purchased this incredible device. It had one of the largest displays I had ever seen before in phone history and for that reason It was a must-have..!!! The color display was very eye-guaging and easy to navigate. I absolutely loved this phone so when it was stolen and I went back to the store to get another one, it was devasting to find out it had been DISCONTINUED...😢 The GALAXY MEGA IS THE RESSON THAT I AM A SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE OWNER TO THIS DAY AND I can not even imagine having any other brand of phone vesides the SAMSUNG BRANG.. 🗣#BRINGBACKTHEMEGA..
necropedo, 28 Sep 2020Sony Z Ultra is my fav. phone ever. I still have 2 of those. I would buy it again with modern ... moreRight. I have 2 but because I had to Frankenstein two together because of sonys infamous dead touch screens and sudden death motherboard issues from then. Thank god by around the z4 or z5 they finally took care of that.
Just can't believe they let such serious fatal issues last for so many years.
But I do love that 6.44 inch 16x9 display.
