The Gigantic Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 – Is it worth the price?by Sushant Bhosale June 27, 2013 0 comments
When Samsung released 5.3 inch Galaxy Note, tech critics were anything but happy. But, it went on to become one of the most sold phone models for Samsung. Its next iteration, Galaxy Note II, was even bigger, 5.5 inch screen. But, Samsung didn’t stop there. Galaxy Mega 6.3, is a 6.3 inch Android smartphone which is, frankly, closer to a tablet than a phone. Would it be worth buying a device which barely fits in your pocket and use it as a phone? Let’s have a closer look at the device to have a definite verdict.
It comes with a 6.3 inch TFT LCD panel. It doesn’t have Samsung’s standard Super AMOLED. Consequently, you won’t see the superb color saturation and vibrant video quality as observed in Galaxy S series. It has a resolution of only 1280-by-720 pixels, which is quite low for such a large screen. The low pixel density (of about 233 ppi) is very visible. The screen’s large and gives you a lot of space to work on, but it’s not something which will make you stare at it all day long.
It comes with an 8 MP camera with LED flash, and a 1.9 MP front facing camera. The rear shooter can also record videos at 1080p full HD, with stereo sound recording. The front facing camera is also capable of 1080p shooting. The camera suite isn’t that impressive. It has the same features like those of Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note II.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 comes powered by 1.7 GHz dual core Cortex A15 processor. That’s a mighty processor, the same one used in Google’s Nexus 10 tablet. It also has a Mali-T604 processor for graphics. On top of these, lies 1.5 GB of RAM. With that configuration, Mega 6.3 can easily be used for some real multitasking and computing.
OS and features:
It comes with the latest Android Jelly Bean 4.2. With the configuration above, Jelly Bean is fluid as butter, and Samsung ubiquitous TouchWiz UI makes the phone even easier to use. Cleaner homescreen and features like Smart Stay and Air View make the phone very productive. The multi-windowed interface, which was introduced first with Galaxy Note series is also present in Mega 6.3. In terms of connectivity, it supports the latest Wi-Fi standard of 802.11ac, and has NFC. It has an LTE enabled model too.
Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 isn’t a top range phone for Samsung, and it’s not being marketed as a high end phone either. However, it is capable of handling most of the multitasking needs of an average user. So, if you are looking to buy a phone on which you intend to work a lot, Galaxy Mega 6.3 might well be a great choice! It’s available for a price of around INR 30,000 across various retailers.
