Well that sucks was hoping for a bigger phone than the Sony Xperia Z Ultra or Z2 Ultra.
Samsung started this whole big screened "thing" with the first galaxy note and now they are taking it too far. But it seems its doing well in the market which is why most manufacturers are following suite.
Check the hTc one max, Xperia T2 Ultra, Nokia 1520 etc, all are rocking 5"+ screens.
i wouldnt be surprised if in 2015-16, smartphones will be rocking 7" screens, replacing 7" tablets entirely.
@StealthKing: did you even read his post before "shooting your mouth"? You can compare it all you want with the 5.8, but he was comparing it with the 6.3. Also, please stop capitalizing all your words like an idiot.

Aside The Quadcore Upgrade & The Front Camera, The Rear Camera Was Upgraded From 8Mpx To 13Mpx, The Screen From 5.8" To 6" Not To Mention Android Kitkat Which Can Run On A 512MB RAM Here It Has 2GB As Opposed To 1.5GB In The Predecessor.

man who buys/needs these huge phones? They remind me of Aladdin and the flying carpet from my childhood. :) To me phones larger than 5.5" are just embarrassing.
why samsung why stop making same phones in different shapes lol big time loser
A downgrade if compared with current Mega 6.3, Smaller screen, smaller Internal Memory, I doubt 1.2Ghz Quad core is any better than 1.7Ghz dual core, same screen resolution, mere better front camera for selfie, probably the only obvious improvement is 13MP main camera & additional 0.5GB RAM..in conclusion not worth upgrade, better get a ZTE Nubira X6, Hopefully Xiaomi can launch a 6" Pablet with Mi4 processor & sell below $500
