I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET and this is the Samsung Galaxy Gigantor.
No, it's not.
It's the Samsung Galaxy Mega, but it is an enormous phone.
It has a 6.3-inch screen.
Now, with a phone like this and with its price, $150 on contract with AT&T, you're looking at some trade-offs.
Unfortunately, some of that does mean the screen.
It has only a 720p resolution on this
big screen which means that it's gonna look noticeably fuzzier, grainier, and a little bit noisier than smaller phones with higher resolutions.
The Mega also has a slightly slower processor than premium phones like the Galaxy S4 and it has a 1.7-gigahertz dual-core processor in here.
Gameplay is still totally fine, but it didn't seem quite as it'd been.
It seemed a little bit jerkier just navigating around and doing normal things.
Let's talk about the size for a minute.
It is enormous.
It looks a little bit ridiculous on
You're gonna have a harder time fitting it into pockets.
If your pockets are larger, then it might be easier.
It definitely fits into bags and purses, though.
This is the kind of phone that you're gonna get if you wanna have a sort of tablet-like experience on something that is a mid-range smartphone.
So, the price is really the appeal here, $150 for something that you can sort of use like a very small tablet.
It does resemble the Galaxy S4 quite a lot.
It's got a physical home button on the bottom, has an IR blaster on the top
so you can control your TV, and it has an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash on the back joined by a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera.
There is support for a 1080p HD video capture.
So, the Mega is definitely a midlevel performer.
There's nothing wrong with it, but if you want more of a premium experience, you'll definitely wanna hold out for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 that's coming up.
That's gonna be a much more high-powered device and it should have a stylus as well.
However, if you're looking for value, this phone does offer it,
but keep in mind that there will be a little bit of a trade-off with the screen resolution.
