If you thought the Galaxy Note II and LG Optimus G Pro were enormous, take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, because it takes "big" to a whole new level. It's packed to the gills with some nice features, but it's a huge piece of phone. Specifications include a 1.7 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU, 6.3-inch HD display with 223ppi, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 1.5 GB of RAM, 3,200 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 with TouchWiz. It's available for purchase through online specialty retailers like Negri Electronics.
From a hardware perspective, it's a mid-range smartphone, but it offers a new display size for those that want to merge their tablet and phone experiences into one. Better yet, by virtue of being new, it brings over some of the features from the Galaxy S 4. Is it worth buying unlocked (and unsubsidized)? Part 2 of 2.
