5.8inch Samsung I9150 Galaxy Mega and 6.3inch I9200 Galaxy Mega

Big has become an obsession if the latest trend from the phone makers is anything to go by, it’s a concept we anticipated sometimes back but not at this rate, Samsung’s latest Galaxy Mega portfolio has stretched the phablet benchmark to some interesting heights; both Galaxy I9150 and Galaxy I9200 pose a gigantic display panel alongside other peculiar specs underneath. The two mega devices slightly overshadow their earlier sibling – Galaxy Note; but that’s as far as they’re in top headlines; beyond a seemingly impressive screen, other features don’t go as far as we expected, it’s a pity we could have such a big display screen with a disappointingly low 540 x 960 pixels resolution on the 5.8inch variant and a modest 720 x 1280pixels resolution on the 6.3inch variant translating to 190ppi and 233ppi (pixels per inch) respectively.

Screen resolution has evolved to become a major concern for most smart phone shoppers, and in this case we expect some kind of redemption in the pricing as chances of exempting phablets are almost nil, otherwise we’d have several options to consider. Currently, the Galaxy S4 has an impressive 441ppi resolution, you’d easily feel out-of-touch moving from such a device to that of both Galaxy Mega I9150 and Galaxy Mega I9200. The two devices have a Dual-Core chip onboard; it’s far less than what we’d have hoped for but still within the modest category. their fronts consists of a massive display screen and Samsung’s typical logo at the top while capacitive touch buttons are placed below it, on the backside is an 8.0 Megapixel snapper which’s well within our expectations. The smaller Mega I9150 also comes with Dual-Sim awesomeness for those who’d love taking advantage of cheaper services from two providers or who’d just prefer having separate phone numbers to cater for different reasons.
