I have never written a review about a mobile. But now, I am writing a review about samsung galaxy mega 6.3 after using it for 4 months only because I am extremely satisfied.
1. Big Screen
I was looking for phablet category item. I spent lot of time on internet studying reviews on features and performance of many mobiles. Finally came accross mega 6.3. With 6.3" screen exact fit to my pocket and amazing display quality I was more than happy. No problems seeing under screen.
One sentence- Many of the 13mp cameras of other brands wont even come close or can't compete with the clarity of pics and videos taken from 8mp camera of mega 6.3.
Easy to manage with 3 or more tasks at a time with no compromise in speed.
4. Call quality
Fantastic hearing quality. If there is a mobile with justice made to meaning of 'loud' speaker its mega 6.3.
Loud speaker is really loud without any wringling noises and ultimate hearing quality.
This is one area many other brands doesn't concentrate upon. Battery charging takes atleast 25% less time compared to other mobiles and discharging takes 2 days normal use. Normal use includes 3g On for 24hrs, about 300mb of data usage, about 2.5hrs of call time. You can watch a little more than 2 movies of 1.5hrs.
Bought on eaby as replacement (sprint).
My wife loves this one so much ever since she got it (forgot her galaxy s4 completely).
But when I check for software update, it starts downloading....630MB. Is that for android 4.4.2 KitKat or just a new firmware?
I don't know if the new update thus 4.4.2 kitkat is rolling in Africa. I really need the update. Any help?
The device is just awesome wid big screen a good processor. ...bt samsung should shame dat galaxy mega is not receiving kitkat yet in india as india is a prominent market of them... I m eagerly waiting for kitkat...if it not cums den shld surely go to another brand except samsung....plzzz release a super update of kitkat for this super device soon....
Such a great phone....cannot see any flaw,it has everything. Same in 5.7 inches would be perfect, but then nobody would buy S5 or Note3
shankar, 11 Aug 2014My Mega 6.3 completed 1 year ...... Happy birthday1 year & no kitkat update, now that my battery is draining faster than previously, may need to replace it soon, still no sign of global version Mega 2, might just switch to other brands.
Samsung now equal to slow update & no update.
Anasta, 14 Aug 2014How about the battery? Removable or non-removable type?The battery is removable.
Anonymous, 11 Aug 2014Better don't install KitKat to Mega 6.3, as current firmware had a lot of bugs, that why Samsu... moreI had a feeling since end of last year that kitkat for mega would be released end of this year where I live, probably in Nov. But even tho I won't be updating.
Sanjeet Kumar, 08 Aug 2014when release kitkat update in india for Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 I9200Better don't install KitKat to Mega 6.3, as current firmware had a lot of bugs, that why Samsung delay the update to get it fixed, may take some time, probably Q4 this year.
I am using it nearly 1 year. This is really amazing phablet. I dont want to change it with new models. Infra red sensor is perfect, fits most tv. Battery is more than enough 3200ma. Screen is more than perfect even under sunlight. 4.4.2 is really fast. Highly recommend.
Can you still move apps to memory card with Kit Kat ? Or write on the card with downloaded file manager like Astro ?
Icing on the cake, Mega 6.3 has USB OTG to use memory sticks...such a nice and powerful phone. Love it. But you need big pockets !
I've been using this for almost a month. I was contemplating at first whether to get a note2 or mega 6.3. most of the searches I did say note2 is better but what can I say,mega 6.3 is wonderful. well tbh it kinda takes time to adapt to its size. but overall, this phone is amazing !
