This morning I read that Samsung is releasing the new Galaxy Mega, an Android powered 6.3" smartphone weighing a whopping 199 grams!
.....WHAT? So I'm asking you guys what you honestly think about this. Is this where phones are headed? Would you actually buy a phone so large (and heavy)?

They said "The size makes it great to use with one hand and fit in your pocket"
You CANNOT use this with one hand. I've tried using a NOTE 2, with one hand. Nope! Couldn't do it. I doubt this will be easier.
Not sure what kind of jeans you guys wear but no way this is fitting into my skinny jeans.

A phone with a 4.5-4.7" screen is about as far as I want, or need to go.
I don't care for Samsung devices, so it doesn't really matter to me, but I am sure it will appeal to some folks, but they will look pretty stupid if they hold it up to their head and use it like a regular sized smartphone.

Think that's big?
Psion made phones (okay, pocket PCs) larger AND thicker than this!
With slide-out keyboards!
In fact, allaboutsymbian has an article about how screen size creep is a myth, at least for top-of-the-line devices.Reviver of Forum Games! I'm TheWPCTraveler over on Nintendo Life, as well. You'll also find me over at gamrConnect as well, because I like numbers.

looks like the game of inches will soon be over. Its approaching the point that phablets are the same size as tablets and now companies will have to battle more over quality and features as size is going to become irrelevant because they keep making them bigger...I bet theres some ***** out there that wants an 8.9" or 10.1" cellphone though :(

I completely forgot about starting this thread... well I'm just checking in to see if anyone's opinions changed about 6 inch devices. This was written before the 1520. My opinion has changed, because I think the 1520 is a beautiful device. Anything bigger is too big for me. Has anyone else changed their opinion?
