Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3: will it fit in your pocket? (video)

May 27, 2013

    Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3

    While waiting for the U.K. launch of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 (the device already has a price tag there), Three made a presentation video of the device that compares it to its siblings in the Galaxy family. Watching the video, you will also find out if the next BIG thing, as the Mega is called (not without a little irony), will fit in your pocket.

    The size comparison is pretty interesting, because you get to see how the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 fares in terms of size to other devices, starting with the 4-inch Galaxy S, which now seems tiny when compared to the Mega 6.3 (or the Note 8.0, but that one falls into the tablet category, so it doesn’t look like a valid comparison).

    Still, perhaps the most burning question that is answered in the video is the age old – will it fit in my pocket? As you can see in the video below, while it isn’t a very comfy fit, the Mega 6.3 can be carried in most pockets without too much hassle.

    Brendan Arndt from Three also mentions the things the oversized phone could be very useful for, to justify the large footprint of the Galaxy Mega 6.3 – reading books, mobile gaming, and watching videos. Come to think about it, the Mega doesn’t seem that big actually, but maybe that’s just us.

    Do you think the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is just too large ? Are you a fan of this type of smartphones?

      1:04 I want everything on that table!

      • @judelawrosa

        Or just the lastest ones (SIV, NoteII and Note 8), the other ones would end up in a box at my bedroom, or at eBay :/

        • MasterMuffin

          SIV and Note 8 for using, others would go to eBay or I’d use them as tinkering devices

        me too

      It may not be too big size, but at that price it is a big joke.

      i don think you will be able to sit down with this phone in ur pocket

      I’m not surprised…I know many people who can carry a 7 inch tablet in their pockets so that phone should be no issue…except the weak specs including the lacking display and the massing S Pen…it’s the “Mini” of the Note series…except bigger the specs are much weaker. And what am I supposed to do with 8 GB internal space? Why is 32 not standard?

      I expect it to be a big hit. I doubt it will be too long before you’ll have a 7″ smartphone – that’s when phone really meets tablet. It will be both functional and popular. The people who talk about “putting it up to your ear” are just being silly – you would certainly use a wired or bluetooth headset with it and you’d benefit from the large screen and long battery life. I remember back in the days of “Daytimers” that you carried a 5X7 notebook planner with you everywhere you went…no you have the option to do it on a 5X7 sized tablet that serves as both your day planner and your music and video player and soon your phone as well. For those anal people, lose the argument about putting it up to your ear!

        It’s already happened. Asus FonePad, anyone?

    • 윌 스튜어트

      It’s a good phone let down by its price – Note 2 offers far more and is in a similar price range.

    • Mahesh Murali

      its better to buy a 7 inch tab with sim slot atleast it will be cheaper than this

    • Dave Weinstein

      It’s only a 720p screen. YAWN! They should be using Sharp’s IGZO 2560×1600 dissplay. Then it would be a winner!

      • HitokiriX

        It’s not meant to be a flagship device. It’s a good more affordable mid-range phone for people who want a larger phone but with a cheaper price.

      Come on, I can put my Nexus 7 in my pocket and it has a hell of a bezel !

      Everytime a bigger phone comes out there’s always someone saying “It won’t fit in your pocket !”. I remember people saying that to me when I bought my Galaxy SII nearly 2 years ago and also that I’d look stupid with something that big on the side of my head while calling. And now ? With 5 to 6 inch phones being the norm, people are saying that we should go back down to the “smaller form factor” that is 4.2 or 4.3 inches ! And those where the biggest screens available hardly 2 years ago !

      In 2015 we’ll all have 8″ phones and saying the Mega 6.3 was the good old times when people didn’t carry around slabs of concrete in their pockets.
      Times change !

        My wife is already craving to change her Note2 for a Note 8.0, she have no additional small phone. She is convinced that 8 inch is perfect size, for a phone.

        • NTD

          I’ve been predicting 7″ and 8″ phones for years. Why not with bluetooth headsets and voice command?

          Now for the S4 camera phone… That is what I want.

    • AverageUser

      Just give me a full tablet with a a spot that holds and charges a Bluetooth for me. Then syncs to a smart watch.

    • Anirudh

      Samsung expected to launch Galaxy pants soon. Get the right fit.

    • Zach Mauch

      Galaxy S II was 4.5 Inches, not 4.3 as they said in the video.

    • brett hetherington
