Look At The Size Of Samsung’s New Freakishly Huge Phone Next To The iPhone 5! [Image]

Samsung just announced a mega-sized phone. It’s freaking big. Like, it’s almost as big as the iPad mini, kind of. It’s called the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, and it’s got a ridiculously huge 6.3-inch display.

If the Galaxy Note II was a puny “phablet” with its 5.5-inch display, then we have no idea what to nickname this gargantuan “phone.” Just look at how¬†monstrous it is next to the iPhone 5! Have fun taking calls on that in public.

    And what about the ppi? Is it worse than the iPhone?

    Why not just taking a 15 inch rMBP and an LTE dongle with you? After all, is seems as manageable as that abortion of a phone!

    Looks great to me. Anyone with poor eyesight or any sort of handicap would be very thankful for a larger device such as this. The amount of squinting I do on my iPhone does make me wonder how much my eyes are being damaged by tiny screens. Choice is good.

    OHNO! Its back to those huge car phones of the 70s….just look at those old 1970-1980s movies on Netflix to see how ugly those things they were! Hopefully this version of a mobile phone is just a nightmare that will vanish when the sun comes out.

    Are Nehru Jackets next?

    If you are squinting at your iPhone, you don’t need a bigger phone, you need glasses.

    I kinda like it… And I can see a target group for it… If you’re about to upgrade and you also fancy a tablet, well, here you go, two in one!

    I will just point and laugh. Point and laugh.

    There were people commenting on how wonderful this Mega was and that they can’t wait to buy one. It’s seems many people are under the impression that the bigger the smartphone is, the better it is. Wall Street totally agrees that Apple will be put out of business by companies that sell larger smartphones. I guess it’s true that size matters.

    No, he needs a bigger smartphone in order to attract attention. “Hey, look at me with my humongous smartphone. I have one and you don’t. Mine is way bigger than yours.” D’oh.
