Sohailqt, 31 Jul 2013Believe me guys I am not Samsung seller or reseller but I am big fan of it. in my life I have ... moreDo u actually mean size does matter? Haha... Anyway, am glad you like it too.
I reckon most people who criticise the Mega have no actual hands on experience with it for a length of time and they base their judgements purely on paper specs.
The Mega has to be experienced to appreciate how well balanced in terms of performance it is for the price.
Believe me guys I am not Samsung seller or reseller but I am big fan of it. in my life I have been used all the new gadgets as soon as its released (iphone, ipad, Nokia & Samsung Galaxies). About Samsung G Mega 6.3 I can say that I have never seen such kind of good device in galaxy series. I am using it since one month. No hanging, no restarts nothing. Game experience superb, Movies playing in full hd on big screen its amazing. Guys I can just say " SIZE DOESN'T MATTER"
contender, 05 Jul 2013Useless device too big to handle ,u can't call it a phone Do you have any idea how people handled phones in the 1950's, kid? Even that wasn't too big to handle, and it was still called a telephone. Today you have a computer you can call people wirelessly from and it's still called a phone. In fact, you could call many things a "smart telephone". Deal with it.
Don Hils', 30 Jul 2013Do you have this phone presently, are you reading this with a mega 6.3 phone? Then answer me, ... moreIt's not metal. Reviews that mention it's "metal" or "metallic" are misleading at best. It's polycarbonate meant to reduce fragility of the phone's sides, which are the most vulnerable part of any phone.
And the construction is good.
Do you have this phone presently, are you reading this with a mega 6.3 phone? Then answer me, pls the ring round the phone, is it metal or silver paint on plastic? Thanks
Wonder why people who haven't grab one but sell massive negative criticism. Spare any USD500 then you will say differently upon few days of using it.
I've benn using it for couple of weeks. No regeret at all.
Wide but slim in design. The screen pretty clear even though being at out-door activities. thanks to super clear LCD. Has quick response on touch. Little bit dificult for my asian grab size. but it worth to have it. Interestingly it has some of good working features of latest Samsung smartphone such as air view, NFC, S Beam, etc. just hover my finger above the screen then it will show additional pop up info on what is in the screen.
Tried some common heavy games, it amaze me for it.
In short, believe me, no regret in having this one.
I bought this mobile yesterday from Sharjah Mega Mall , Mobile is Awsome Super Excellent Performance size is slightly bigger but does not matter as I am big screen lover as i m into games and movies so this smart gadget is specially for me & those who love to play games and love to watch movies when you are not at home.
Hats' on Samsung done Gr8 Job ... Really This Mobile Mega is Super Excellent in low budget really its value for money !!!!!
I had use this phone for two week, is a good phone & save battery. Must have it :p
SUDHAKAR, 27 Jul 2013Waste phone.
> No radio.
> No Xenon flash.
> No AMOLED display.Dear Sudhakar,
You can schedule SMS! Is it not a great feature!
Yes, It has Radio.
Xenon flash comes at a cost and I9200 is not that much costly.
1013, 28 Jul 2013AFAIK Here we are talking about Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 I9200 and not I9205.
Tattoo, you ar... moreOIC...the I9205 is the variant which has LTE but no radio.
Pretty odd actually. Is it a common practice for Samsung to take out a feature and add another for variants of the same series ?
SATHWIK, 26 Jul 2013there should be reputation of brand, samsung dsoesnt have it and they are launching mobiles li... moreWhat a great certificate! BTW what actually who made you write all this rubbish?
Have you ever had this Mega 6.3 in your hand even for once?
Compare SII, SIII, SIV and they all will look like tiny toys before this splendid phone.
Funguss, 27 Jul 2013Which model number are you referring to?
AFAIK there is no radio for the Mega 6.3 (I9205)AFAIK Here we are talking about Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 I9200 and not I9205.
Tattoo, you are 100% correct that I9200 has radio because mine I9200 also has one, like all I9200 in India at least have radio.
rieyz, 12 Jul 2013off course no pen stylus coz that not on the NOTE family .i dont think this phone can win for ... moreI have galaxy mega 6.3 and it is a gr8 phone better than note 2 i which i hardly use now BECAUSE note 2 is nothing when compared to the galaxy mega ,it has better perfomance ,bigger screen , better support trust me u shouldnt criticize any phone just by seeing the specs because 2012 flagships are now considered as mid range smartphones e.g s3 it has a quad core processor but no where near the dual core 1.7 ghz krait of the galaxy mega point is that the s3 also has a smaller screen which also is its advantage for perfomance and same goes for the note 2 . It maylook they pack a punch seeing the specs and they do but not upto par with 2013 smartphones which have newer chipset architecture
I've﻿ bought it and feel very disappointed and regret at all...due to the radio receiver too is low in rural areas village...I do not suggest you buy it if you sit in the well-away from the radio transmitter.
