Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3

T he Galaxy Mega is a smartphone from the mid-segment, which is mostly noticeable when we look at the phone`s processor. It is a Dual Core processor with a clock rate of 1.7Ghz and a 1.5GB RAM memory. In our opinion, Samsung was a bit stingy here. The idea of Mega is to offer the combination of a smartphone and a tablet, so that you can look at videos and games comfortably. However, the Samsung Galaxy Mega does not have the power to perform these functions properly. The Galaxy Mega froze up several times, especially with graphically heavy applications.

8GB intern memory

The Galaxy Mega comes with 8GB of internal memory The Android OS and the Touch Wiz UI already use half of the space, which does not make it excessive to acquire a microSD memory card. The microSD card is placed at the back of the device, directly above the microSIM card. The battery does not have to be removed, so that you do not have to turn the phablet off. microSD memory cards are supported up to 64GB, so that you can save all your favorite apps, music, videos, and photos there without a problem.

3,200mAh battery

The large 6.3-inch screen really uses up a lot of power, which is why the Galaxy Mega is equipped with a 3,200mAh battery. This is the largest battery capacity that we have seen in a smartphone until now. According to the specifications, this battery delivers a maximum standby time of 390 hours. In comparison, the Galaxy Note 2 (5.5” screen) has a battery capacity of 3,100 mAh and the Galaxy S4 (5” screen) only has a 2,600mAh battery. In practice, you can easily use the Galaxy Mega for a full day, even with intensive use. That is a fine performance!
