Samsung is great at many things: pushing boundaries, providing a portfolio of mobile devices in practically every size imaginable, and applying the same design language across the entire portfolio. The Galaxy Mega 6.3 is a perfect example of that.
Many said the original Galaxy Note, with a 5.3-inch display, was entirely too large. In fact, 4.3-inch smartphones were considered large just two years ago. Then Samsung proceeded to release an even bigger smartphone, the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II. Now thanks to the Galaxy Mega 6.3, a gigantic smartphone that bears a 6.3-inch display and more closely resembles a small tablet than a smartphone, the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note II seem rather modest … maybe even normal.
Instead of existing under the same brand, it and its 5.8-inch sibling have been given appropriate brands of their own – Mega.
We’re left with a bevy of unanswered questions we now aim to answer once and for all. Is a phone that barely fits in your pocket worth the buy? Have we finally met our match, a phone that’s too big to handle? How big is too big? (Hold the “That’s what she said” jokes until the end.) We’ve spent eight full days with the Galaxy Mega 6.3 in our (stretched) hands and (tight) pockets.
