Love the screen size and speakerphone volume. It's a great bargain price phone in a world of $1k+ competitors.
I got this phone just to use it as a second phone. Now I dont use it anymore, but I'm not selling it, I use it as a eBook reader, GPS in car and just in case my other phone will fail. It's great. Should change battery because it's draining fast though, but overall it's amazing. I wish I would make it run faster...
How can I make my mega 2 just as fast s a new phone. I love my phone it is just slow...
I've been using this phone since 2015. And still working perfectly. The cameras quality, speaker and the baterays life. All are still in its best performance.
i used this phone Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 three year seven month ago, wow battery so far so good .

Balaboy, 19 Feb 2018The front camera n flash not functioning.
Can advice ?
Other than that the phone is excellent1.Download on to your pc to save all data
2. Plug in your USB charging cable & back up all data
3. Go to phone settings "backup & restore"
4. Restore to factory settings.
5. Check your camera.
It should work.
6. Then restore your data back to your phone from the pc.
7. You will have to organize your apps & move them to your home screen from the play store 8. & your contact preferences in settings
9. If you try to install a flashlight on the mega 2 it will stop your camera. The new flashlights are not compatible.
10. Then you will have to start again.
The front camera n flash not functioning.

So far the phone is still working in very good condition, no problem in playing games and chatting. Camera functions also very good. Although it has been a few years since its launch, the phone still works great! Cheers!
the battery still longer lasting after 3.5 year , the battery still longer lasting than 11 hours++ after 3.5 year ,Camera capture speed same with iphone6 and same clear too, best performance in game grand theft auto san andreas with smooth,this phone used chipset exynos 4415(exynos 4)great, the exynos 4415 cpu awake efficient so that the battery save power, than the mobile data also fast 4G LTE CAT 4 150Mbps, really a good phone ever!!!!!!
DingDing, 04 Feb 2017I have been using this Mega 2 since December 2014. More like three years!
So far this phabl... moreIve got the Mega II that i picked up brand new w no contract ($750.00) in may of 2014,. I have had the camera not available issue which is resolved with a battery pull every time, and occasional re-boots out of no where..(Google chrome is a shit browser due to memory leaks) but other than that and the home button is worn out to silver, this is by far the best phone ive ever owned. Not a scratch worth mentioning on the display (Gorilla Glass) and just a basic case saves it. 2nd battery is 6 mo old and so far no problems...dont opt for the cheap chinese ones, get OEM and youll be happy. This is by far the best phone ive ever owned.. just bought a new LG Stylo 3+ which is considerably faster, yet i still love the big display and ease of use with the mega II... sad that they did so poorly on sales, but they screwed themselves with the Galaxy mega 1, only a weak dual core cpu and while the screen was 6.3 inches, that Mega 1 was a problem from the start. Never had one that worked reliably so had to use a Note 3/4 until the Mega 2 came out. Still fast once you dump the bloatware and disable the bs apps from running as well as move the apps to the SD card. LTE is blazing fast, display is an LED backlit beauty...and unlike the previous model and the older notes, its still 90-95% as bright as it was new out of the box...the Mega 1s and note 3/4 would lose their brightness quickly (1 to 1.5 yrs they were half as bright)
The biggest problem with the mega 2 from day one was getting accessories. They never made an Otterbox case for it, they had a pelican one which was 80 bucks and was garbage. Zero water protection, clip broke in a day...
Would love an Octocore 1.7 ghz mega 3 with stylus, 6.2 to 6.5 AMOLED gorilla glass display, min android 7, with 64 megs and 4 megs dedicated to CPU/GPU, with face recognition, stay on, and maybe even voice or fingerprint recognition.
Overall i give it a 10 of 10...3 plus years and still going strong
Jackfrost, 18 May 2017the battery is weak. replace with new batteryThis is true. Battery needed to be much bigger for this phone. For me with moderate daily use, 7 hours max. Not good really!
only good if you like big screen phone and just a casual user.other than that,the os isnt updated so you stuck with kitkat.
for the charging problem when taken to service , they say is a fake and cant fix it , the problems started after less the 6 months , Don't buy it !
Golders Green, 05 Mar 2017My mega 2 just shuts down without warning. I have to take apart the case, pry open the phone, ... moreDon't know how long ago you wrote this but I have had the exact same problem with the original Mega and the Mega 2. I have to do the same thing to turn it back on.. This is the second Mega 2. I sent it back once and they replaced it. But my second one does the same thing. I can upgrade in July 2017 and it won't be a Mega.
