Two of a Kind: Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 vs Samsung Galaxy Note II

For those who have their heart set on Samsung, this article will surely interest you. Read on to explore all the sides of Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Samsung Galaxy Note II.

Large touchscreen and innovative features set both the devices apart. Almost alike in looks, both the devices are made of glossy plastic, distinguished with curved corners and a silvery trim around the sides. A little smaller than the Mega 5.8, the Note II at 5.5-inch is easier to carry and use.

The Super AMOLED 720 x 1280 pixels 256 ppi display of the Note II gives it more clarity and better display as compared to the Mega, which stands at 540 x 960 pixels 190 ppi. However, the latter is also more usable under broad daylight than the former.

The recent OS version- Android 4.2.2 interface gives the Mega 5.8 an advantage over the Note II, which has Android 4.1.2. Samsung’s TouchWiz custom UI in both the devices offer users features including Smart Stay, S Voice and Multi Window.

However, the Note II gets a ball in its court with the handy S Pen stylus that makes taking notes much easier on the device.

Both have 8-megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash with 1080p video mode. Call clarity is better in the Note II as it has better-sounding earpiece. There’s a massive, 2600mAh battery in the Mega 5.8, whereas the cell in the Note II has a capacity of 3100mAh.

Doom Of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Is Near: Samsung Sky Rides On The Galaxy Mega 6.8 And Galaxy Mega 5.8

Samsung is riding high on Could Nine. With its latest tryst with success post-launch of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Mega 6.3, this is well justified. The makers have always stressed that the fabulous phablets will soon be available round the globe. But wait—recent news barely point to such a promise being kept!

The UK market might well miss the Galaxy Mega 5.8 phablet. The 6.3-inch beast could arrive in May though. Since Samsung is focusing on wider waist on its smartphone wares, the 6.3 would be a wow-er option against the Galaxy Mega 5.8. Samsung’s strategy for wider screen started with the Galaxy S4 and the anticipated Galaxy Note 3.

JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT and Mobile Business, Samsung Electronics, “We are aware of a great potential in the bigger screen for extensive viewing multimedia, web browsing, and more. We are excited to provide another choice to meet our consumers’ varying lifestyles, all while maintaining the high-quality features of the award-winning GALAXY series.”

The Galaxy Mega is a worthy lick if you are looking to kiss and caress on a larger screen but if you want your darling to be as smart as it looks, perhaps you could sniff into the Galaxy Note 2 platter.
