Engadget Review

The Mega is a respectable mid-range device, but it's too large for anyone who wants to sometimes use their phone one-handed.

I just purchased the phone and absolutely love it. I wanted something that I could use as a phone and tablet and I found it!!! It does take a bit to get used to and can be a bit clumsy at times, but honestly, when i bought this, I knew the size, and knew what I was getting into, so i'm not going to complain about it. Long story short..... Love it. Very pleased with this product. Highly recommend.

I absolutely love this phone i love the size and ease of use. and it has many upgradable options and the fact its on a 4G lte network is freaking amazing and adds to me using it more than my ipad.

Ok so I upgraded to this phone last month from my iPhone4s, and wow! I feel like i've been living in the past with this little tiny screen I use to adore. If your looking for a trendy compact phone your looking in the wrong place. This is one big phone, but I love every inch of it. For me 6"4 240lbs its great I no longer feel like I own a piece of expensive irreplacable china for a phone. It has a great screen that can get a little laggy at times but for the most part its great. My call quality is actually quite better on this phone compared to the iPhone. Every phone I own is unlocked and used on the straight talk service, so it runs off of at&t towers; before I couldnt get a call out at my home, now I can walk all through the house and never drop a call. A lot of the features of this phone is great smart watch, smart stay, i've played with a dozen different phones over the past two months trying to figure out which one I wanted and tried not to listen to everyone elses' hype about this one or that one. Take it from me an everyday guy with three kids, a wife, and two dogs. Not a techy guy but this phone does everything basicly that the s4 does, no it's not as fast or does not have as high as resolution but for the everyday user if your looking for size and quality this is by far the best choice to go for I would definitely recomend this phone to anyone thinking about buying one.

I have owned this crazy big phone for just over a month. It's an amazing phablet. I got this to replace my phone and tablet. I have noticed that I don't even use my tablet anymore. The specs on the galaxy mega are so so. But it does not disappoint you. It does fit in my pocket , but don't think you will take this to the gym or on a jog. I have At&t , so service sucks on the phone. I heard that T-Mobile is way better service. I'm sure the At&t model will be much better service. I look forward to that day. I had the note 2 and tried to go back to it. But it is way to small.
