Samsung Galaxy Mega (M819N) Review & Specs

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is a mid-level device launched many years ago, packing a fast Dual-Core CPU ticking at 1700 megahertz, a really big 6.3 inches screen, an 8 MP back side camera and a 1.9 mega-pixels front camera. But let’s get into some more detail.

This phone is very thin and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.31″. Whereas this phone just has 6.6 inches long and 3.46″ wide, it’s still able to fit a a 6.3″ display. This phone feels much lighter than what you expect from a phone this size. This phone is for sale in two different color options, black and white.

Samsung decided to build this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8930AB chip, packing a good performance 1700 megahertz Dual-Core processing unit and a huge 1,5 GB of RAM. Handling graphic rendering, it also counts with a 450 megahertz Adreno 305 graphics processing unit. A good advantage of this cellphone is its 8 GB quite large internal storage memory and an SD extension slot, which allows you to install a couple hundred apps and games without any problem.

Samsung packed this phone with a very good 6.3 inches screen, and a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, providing this cellphone with a good graphic quality. Its screen uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This phone features wi-fi connection (which can be provided to other devices acting as a modem), 4G (LTE) high speed connectivity and also HSPA+ connection type, which is a lower speed 4G type or the fastest 3G connectivity, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The Mega 6.3 works with a Micro SIM card for GSM connection and it can connect to both CDMA and GSM networks.

The Mega 6.3 features two cameras, an 8 megapixels back side camera and a 1.9 MP front-facing camera. It is capable of shooting videos up to 1920×1080 (Full HD) at 30 frames per second. In addition, this phone’s camera also counts with a couple of interesting features: flash, auto-focus, fast burst mode, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This device also features many interesting features like Bluetooth (for communication with other bluetooth cellphones and accessories), GPS, Infrared Port and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This phone counts with a big 3200 mAh Li-Ion removable battery that can keep this device running for many hours without charging it at all. Samsung claims this cellphone has a 410 hs stand by time and a 18 hs talk time.

The Mega 6.3 is a very good choice for you it doesn’t matter whether you are looking for a work cellphone, want a phone to play games or want a phone to mostly use social networks and internet browsing.
