Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 I9200 review: Largest Screen Smartphone

posted at 19 June 2013 by Paul

The handset comes with the proven TouchWiz browser, which has one of the fastest rendering engines, and Adobe Flash support. As you can imagine, browsing on the 6.3” display is a great experience. In terms of connectivity, the Mega 6.3 offers a 21.1 Mbit/s HSPA+ 4G radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 - A-GPS, NFC, FM Radio set and an MHL connector at the bottom. You should also know that the phone supports the fast 802.11ac standard Wi-Fi, as long as you have the respective router.

When it comes to voice quality, the Mega 6.3 is average, both in the earpiece, which may sound a bit hollow and distorted, and in the receiving end where voices are a bit muffled. The noise-canceling microphones, however, do a fine job and suppress ambient noise pretty well. The phone is powered by a generous 3200 mAh battery which will prove enough to last through day and a half or two day of normal usage.

In terms of design and weight at least, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is an achievement as it sports such an enormous screen size and a massive 3200 mAh battery.

As we said before, it is definitely a great phone for browsing the web, watching videos, reading, enjoying multi-window mode, and so on, but a screen this size also comes with compromises such as the difficulty of handling and carrying it around. With a strong direct competitor such as Huawei Ascend Mate on the market, Samsung should not overprice the Mega 6.3, if it doesn’t want to be disappointed in sales results.

- Huge 6.3-inch LCD screen
