Brief review of Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 features

Mega 5.8 has been launched with its elder (bigger) sibling – Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 in second half. Mega 5.8 priced very low and has major emphasis on size only. 5.8 inches display has the 540 x 960 ppi pixels density.

It is a dual SIM handset which also supports GPRS, EDGE, 3G and Wi-Fi platforms. I loved the phone featuring 8 MP rear and 1.9 MP front camera. The operating system is the latest one v4.2.2 with the TouchWiz UI.

This phone is a kind of phablet, but is being advertised like a phone which has design as same of Galaxy S3 and other Samsung smartphones. Big screen with lesser price will make you compromise on the processor and performance. Processor is dual core type with frequency 1.4 GHz.

Due to bigger screen, 2600mAh battery has been used in this device. This phone has been introduced by Samsung for the people who want a product like Galaxy S4 but at lower price range.
