Just bought this phone 1 week ago and I tell you I have no regrets. Everything is just amazing. The main reason I bought this phone was because of its screen size (6.3"). Take note, I love surfing the net and watching movies in my phone. My previous phone was the great galaxy note but after using it for a while I wanted a much bigger screen (bigger than Note 2 or Note 3). 1 month ago I bought a Samsung Tab 2 7 but I was too heavy and too big. This phone has all the balance.

There have already been several firmware updates to improve stability and performance and the phone has barely even been in the market. They will undoubtedly update it to AT LEAST 4.3 later on.

The "IR blaster" allows you to control various devices that can be controlled by infrared signals, like TVs, media players, air conditioners. Applications like Samsung's (included) WatchON and other applications available on Google Play can make use of it.
Guys my Galaxy Mega is always asking for software update, let me know how can I stop this because I almost update it everyday. Thanks.
What is use of IR Port in I9200 and how we can access it? Masters, please put some light on it. Thanks.
Donzzy, 05 Aug 2013I see a lot of comments that this phablet is amazing but how come the ratings are not that good?because of trolls who never even used it, who rate it low
SC-LCD display look much better than AMOLED. If you don't mind the dual core processor, this phone have all the features from the current Galaxy S series. 6.3 inches display looks really stunning using SC-LCD...look more natural than Amoled display. Jelly Bean 4.2.2 likely is the last stop version for this mega phone but anyway is more than enough.

Hi guys, I'm planning to buy this phone, does it has the smart features like the samsung galaxy s3 and s4? Like smart pause, tilt to zoom and other smart features???? Please tell me! Thnks in advance guys
Just got this phone for slightly over a day. Battery life pretty decent. With moderate usage should last 2 days..I am still monitoring. So far am glad i got this phone. Only feedback I can give is, the speaker location. Would love to have it in front or at the side versus the back. Once u put the phone on its back, it muffle the speaker.

LOLOY, 01 Aug 2013Gud pm po. May i check if Galaxy Mega has the capability for document editing document.... I p... moreYes, you can. You can download a document viewer and editor app in Google Play Store.
i used tab for last one year but when i heared about mega i m very glad to have it....really it is uncomperable.....
Funguss, 04 Aug 2013I agree with you on every point! Glad you like the Mega. Samsung has another winner here.
I... moreWhile the kids who don't know any better categorize it as "mid-range", grown-ups categorize it as a no-nonsense, powerful phone for sensible people. Idiots who watch their phone's screen a couple of centimeters away from it will tell you "we can see pixelation", while sensible people realize that the 720p screen combined with that amount of GPU and CPU power = more than adequate performance.
The panel quality is the best of any TFT LCD panel in any phone. Its advantage compared to any available IPS panel is in color accuracy (resulting in a more natural look). Not to mention that any AMOLED screen is very far behind, in accuracy. The kids sure love the idiotic "vibrant" look, though. They love the phones that are marketed to them, and they can stay with that and be happy.
The sound quality is the best. We like to hear things properly. The kids can continue to be satisfied with the horribly distorted sound coming out of their "high-end" phones.

I was surprised how good it really is despite being categorised as mid range. Sure performs better than that.
