2Not One, but Two Versions
Unlike Samsung’s many other products, like the Galaxy S 4, which comes in one version, the Galaxy Mega is available in two options: a 5.8-inch model and a 6.3-inch model. That’s actually a good thing. Samsung is offering those who want a more smartphone-like experience to opt for the smaller Mega, while those who’d prefer a tablet experience can go for the larger option.

5Both Models Have Strong Processors
The Galaxy Mega 6.3 comes with a capable 1.7GHz dual-core processor. The Galaxy Mega 5.8 has a 1.4GHz dual-core processor. Although that’s not quite as powerful as the larger option, it’ll still handle just about any application a person throws at it. And nowadays, that’s about all users can ask for.
6Screen Size Isn’t the Only Difference
Although the screen size and processors are different in the Megas, they don’t end there. The higher-end 6.3-inch model comes with 16GB of internal storage, compared with 8GB on the smaller version. In addition, the Mega 6.3 allows for more connectivity to 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks. The differences between the devices aren’t minor.

8They Deliver the Same Samsung Software Experience
Samsung didn’t try to change the basic design or internal specifications of the Galaxy Mega simply because the device has a bigger display than those it currently offers. That’s a good thing for users. Samsung’s Android skin is still running on the device, as are the company’s many software applications. The experience that has made Samsung so popular among Galaxy S buyers is also the driving force behind the Mega.
9Your Choice of App Stores
One of the nice things about Samsung products, the Mega included, is that they can access not one, but two application stores. Those looking for a huge selection of apps can download programs from the Google Play marketplace. Those looking for programs designed for Samsung products can download apps from the Samsung Apps marketplace. In either case, Mega owners will find a solid collection of programs.

11Big Screens Allow for Split-Screen
The 6.3-inch Mega comes with a really neat function: the ability to split the screen in two. With that, users can view two applications simultaneously and dramatically improve their productivity. Don’t underestimate the value of the split-screen feature.
