Samsung Galaxy Mega
The Samsung Galaxy Mega has one of the biggest screens of any smartphone, making it ideal for if you love movies when you're on the move and enjoying visual content, but also perfect for typing and working on spreadsheets.
The essential tech specs.
Inside the Galaxy Mega is a 3,200mAh, a huge battery, giving 420 hours of standby and 10 hours of non-stop talk time. Running Android Jelly 4.2 and with an advanced Snapdragon 400 1.7GHz dual core processor, it's extremely slick. The 6.3" display is one of the biggest of any smartphone, and the resolution of 720x1280 means a sharpness of 233 pixels per inch (PPI). The 8MP camera is good in all conditions, while there's 8GB of built-in storage, which is expandable with a microSD card up to 64GB (sold separately).
A super sized screen.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega is going to be famous for its screen. At 6.3" it's one of the biggest of any smartphone, and with 720p HD resolution it's sharp too, so it's stupendous for enjoying your favourite movies, TV episodes, and enjoying photos on Facebook®. Even though the Galaxy Mega has such a large screen, it's still perfectly usable with one hand. Light for its size and only 8mm thin, there's also built-in software that makes it easy for one hand use. There's a special keyboard option that squishes the keys to one side, as well as a number pad that can be shrunk, making for easier selection with one thumb.
Split screen mode.
That huge screen is also great for using multiple apps at once for increased efficiency. This means you can have an email open in one half of the screen, and be reading an internet page on the other half. You can also be making notes on S Planner while reading a text message from a friend giving you directions. Or, use the Pop up play feature. This means you can have a small window playing a movie or video clip floating on top of any other screen, so you can be writing some Tweets, and still watch your video clips from last night's party.
Air View – using the screen without touching.
The screen of the Galaxy Mega is so sensitive you can control it without touching it, using a feature called Air View. Hover your finger a few millimetres from the screen and you can do things like preview folders in your gallery, preview entire messages without having to open a text, preview sections of video to find the exact moment you want to watch and even magnify the screen to make hitting web links easier.
Group Play and S Translator.
The great software in the Samsung Galaxy Mega doesn't stop there either. Group Play is a feature that lets you wirelessly connect to other compatible devices so you can share music and have it playing from multiple devices at once, share pictures, documents, and connect to play multiplayer games. It's fast and really easy to set up too. S Translator is a built-in app that lets you translate from and to English from nine other languages including Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish, and English. Cameras front and back.
