Samsung has always brought out winners when it came to Android based smart phones, which means that the Mega, the next in the Galaxy series of Samsung smart phones is also one of a kind. The phone is definitely true to its name, due to the most obvious feature that you can see when you look at it. What you see is a huge screen that cannot escape anyone’s notice at first glance.the other features and characteristics similar to normal smartphone.
Design And Build:
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is a member of a rare breed. While it has the specs of a mid-range device, its appearance might make an unassuming buyer think that it's one beast of a phone. That's because its front is occupied by a massive, 5.8-inch touchscreen, which happens to be the smartphone's stand-out feature. However, the panel's resolution is rather low, and the rest of the phones hardware doesn't look impressive either. The candy bar design of the phone makes it really easy to grasp with one hand. The phone is Dual SIM.
The primary camera with LED flash sports an 8 MP sensor while the secondary sensor is 1.9 MP. The dual camera system makes the phone ideal for voice calls with video as well. The device can support full HD video recording at 1080 x 1920 pixels at 30 fps.
A resolution of 540 by 960 pixels looks pretty terrible on a 5.8-inch screen. Well, that's true for the most part and anyone who has ever tried a smartphone with a high-res screen before will be underwhelmed by the 190ppi pixel density of the Mega's display. The screen is usable, of course. Eventually, our eyes gets used to all the pixelation so it doesn't as bother. Yet still, fine text can be difficult to read while details in graphics are mediocre. While the LCD screen on the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 exhibits accurate and punchy colors, the response time appears to be rather low. As a result, there is a slight motion blur going on when there are fast-moving objects being rendered. That isn't too annoying, but it's a flaw nonetheless. The viewing angles are okay – not too wide, but not bad either.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega runs on the latest Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The TouchWiz interface can be seen as the default overlay on the Android. The phone is available with a 1.4 GHz Dual Core processor. This makes the device really powerful when it comes to CPU intensive activities. The phone comes with a 1.5 GB RAM which is ideal for multitasking.
Power On It:
Despite the power intensive features seen in the Galaxy Mega, the 2600 mAh Li-Ion battery is more than capable of keeping the device powered up for an adequate period of time. The screen is what draws most of the battery's juice, so keeping its brightness low would extend the time between charges.
To conclude, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is for the users who like big screen and good performance. Without a doubt, having such a huge screen makes gaming a lot more comfortable and it is great for watching video or photos. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is meant to be used as a multimedia device first and as a dual sim phone later.
