The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is definitely one huge smartphone that’s almost close to the size of a small tablet. Even if the display is large it still feels great to carry around since it is surprisingly thin.
The display isn’t capable of full HD though and is limited to only 720p. This does not take away anything from the device as images and videos still look good on it.
It’s got a rich set of features from productivity to entertainment apps which consumers will find useful.
The device will be sold at 700,000 won.
