Review: Samsung Galaxy Mega for AT&T

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  18  

The Samsung Galaxy Mega, while capable and powerful, is not a phone I would ever choose to purchase or use myself. It's simply too big. Where the Note II lives on the edge, the Mega leaps right over into the land of Can't Fit My Hand. Aside from the size, the hardware is decent. It's a good looking phone, though it would be nice if the materials were of slightly higher quality.

The signal, sound, and battery performance all fell into good ranges, though the large screen was a bit fuzzy to my eyes. Clearly, the Mega is not as high-end a device as the GS4 or Note II, and the screen is the defining factor there. The camera does a good job, and features such as the removable battery and memory card are sure to appeal to some users.

As far as the software goes, the Mega is just as over-the-top as the GS4 with its insane customization options and too-many-to-list apps and features.

If you thought the Note was too big, stay away from the Mega. If you truly want something that falls in between a smartphone and a tablet, there's a case for the Galaxy Mega. Whatever you do, don't buy this phone without going to an AT&T store and handling it yourself.
