Sizing up the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3

What do you get when you supersize your Samsung Galaxy S4? The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3. It'll be sold by AT&T, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular.

And we mean huge

The larger-than-life phablet may have the S4's looks and size, but not all its internals. The processor, for instance, is a dual-core CPU instead of a quad-core chipset.

Galaxy S4 style

The Mega shares many of the S4's design aesthetics, even the patterned finish.

Pocket shock

Sure, it'll fit in some pockets, if you try hard enough.

Tablet finesse

The Mega is much smaller than a tablet, but its extra-large display does offer a degree of the tablet's viewing benefits. Unfortunately, screen resolution caps at 720p HD.

Camera and video

An 8-megapixel camera sites on the back, next to an LED flash. You'll be able to capture 1080p HD video clips.
