There are a growing number of consumers that like the phablet device with its larger screen size that at a time was limited to the 5.5-inches of the Galaxy Note 2. Now though Samsung has launched some new devices and today we have the Galaxy Mega 6.3 vs Galaxy Note 2 with side by side images and specs.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has rightly gained many good reviews and fans alike but you have to wonder if the company has gone too far with the Galaxy Mega 6.3. As you can see on this page from the image courtesy of Ubergizmo the new handset dwarfs the already large Galaxy Note 2.
Samsung’s new device features a 6.3-inch TFT display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 with a pixel density of 223ppi, which compares to the Note 2 that uses a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with the same resolution and 267ppi.
Power and storage
The Galaxy Note 2 is powered by the Samsung quad core processor clocked at 1.6GHz with 2GB of RAM and storage options going up 64GB that can be expanded further up to 64GB via microSD card, while the Mega 6.3 uses a dual core processor clocked at 1.7Ghz with 1.5GB of RAM and the same storage options.
There is an 8-megapixel unit on the rear of the Note 2 along with a 1.9-megapixel unit on the front, which is the same as the Mega 6.3.
Battery & Dimensions
The new kid on the block features a 3,200 mAh battery packed into a form factor measuring 167.6 x 88 x 8mm weighing 199grams, which compares to the Note 2 with its 3,100 mAh battery at 151.1mm x 80.5mm x 9.4mm and 183grams.
We have already seen pre-orders for the Galaxy Mega 6.3 starting with one retailer, but you have to wonder if the device is just too big to be used mainly as a smartphone unless you go for the Galaxy Mega 5.8.
