Forum Added for the Samsung Galaxy Mega

What do you do when the Galaxy Note line is simply not big enough? You get the Samsung Galaxy Mega. And what have we done for those who have found themselves in such a spot? We’ve given them a forum, of course.

To say that the Samsung Galaxy Mega is a large device is no understatement. Samsung’s large slate-style phone has a screen measuring in at a whopping 6.3 inches. The device has a 1280×720 resolution, yielding 233 ppi. The device is powered by a 1.7 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC featuring the Krait processor and Adreno 305 graphics. It also features 1.5 GB of RAM and either 8 or 16 GB of storage. The Samsung Galaxy Mega comes preloaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and is encased in a plastic enclosure measuring a mere 8 mm thin and weighing just 199 grams.

Is this your next device? What do you think about its screen size? Let us know in the comments below. And if you’re itching to learn more about the device, be sure to head over to the newly created forum to get started.
