The Samsung Note series got us back to taking notes but just before you settled cozily with the Note 2 while dreaming of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3, here is another bet that Samsung has thrown in the path of gadget addicts. The makers have crossed all limits with the Galaxy Mega at 6.3-iches. Not knowing what to call it—a smartphone, a phablet or a tab, is my first hiccup while penning this review.

Nevertheless, the Galaxy Mega could be a breezy buy that packs in punches too many. First with its 1.7GHz dual core processor and 1.5 GB RAM, the Mega is big on performance. However, I believe that it is just on the borderline of beating Samsung Galaxy S4.

Minus any AMOLED tag or full HD coating, the screen still comes across as sharp with HD PLS LCD. A fair bet for those who are looking to start experimenting with Samsung only now. One huge plus of the Mega is that its messaging spec if a cool bet. Atleast against the Samsung Galaxy S3, it holds its own.

With 16 GB inbuilt storage and an expandable MicroSD slot, the Mega Grand brings a smile to my face. The  3200mAh battery is sturdy and lends fair life to this “tab-phab-phone whatever!”

With AirView and glove finger support, the Mega often transports me back to my fantasy of the Samsung Galaxy S4. I am yet to understand if this Mega is worth all its glam—the huge size and the buzzy popularity. One thing it did to me is—salivate over the taste Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could cook up.
