Samsung Galaxy Mega Review: who is this device for???
The Galaxy Mega is one massive device, announced a few months back and available on the international market the Galaxy Mega is now available in the US market on AT&T priced at $149. The Mega is truly the next big thing in just sheer size alone, with it 6.3-inch 720p AMOLED display (223ppi). Other specs included includes a 1.7-GHz dual-core snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of Storage (microSd exp), an 8-megapixel camera, and a massive 3,200 mAh battery that promises to get you through a whole day and does deliver i might add. Plus the device runs Android 4.2.2 and is available in both black and white. To quantify where the Galaxy Mega stand in the realm of smartphones can be a interesting endeavor. For one it is still a mobile phones, it does make calls and quite well I might add on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. When it comes to fit and feel now that’s a different question. For someone like me with larger hands and bigger pockets. The Galaxy Mega isn’t an issue, but that won’t be the case for most, plus surprisingly missing is the lack of a S-pen. The device begs for one with its large screen real estate, that calls for a use of a a pen and two handed operations.
Gaming on the Galaxy Mega is fairly decent with some noticeable slow downs on games like Modern Combat 4 which are graphically intensive. Yet it is still a solid Android gaming devices, the large display sizes does make it easier to play game son a touch screen, also viewing media content is much more enjoyable on the Mega. Which leads me to the point of who is this device for? that is where the problem lies with the Galaxy Mega. Its got solid performance ea massive display yet it is still a phone and almost a tablet. dare I say, it is a Tabphone. A device that is more tablet than phone. It is hard not to appreciate the workings of the Galaxy Mega. But lets be clear this device isn’t for everyone, actually it is only for a small select group of people here in the USA, with extra disposable incomes, having a convergence device like the Mega may not be practical. But in International markets, especially South East Asia and Africa. I can see the Galaxy Mega being a perfect device to meet their mobile needs.
