Not Sure You Need a Bigger Phone? Samsung Thinks You Do! A 6-inch Monster!

Samsung Mega coming soon
(Samsung Mega Facebook page)

Get ready for the new Galaxy Mega.

The Wall Street Journal and others describe the Samsung Galaxy Mega as pushing the limits of smartphones with a giant that has a 6.3 inch diagonal screen.   Compare that to last year’s i-Phone which had a 4 inch screen.

The Wall St. Journal had this to say about this new behemoth:

“Unobtrusive, the Mega is not – unless you use it to hide your face. It’s 6.5 inches long and 3.5 inches wide. But it builds on the popularity of the Note, which found a niche in the crowded and competitive smartphone market.”

But they went on to say it’s nothing compared to the early era of the mobile phone,  when they would have been impossible to fit in any pocket, or probably purse for that matter!

“And while handset makers seem to keep pushing the limits with bigger phones, they aren’t likely to match the original 1980s brick phone: the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x with its 13-inch height and unwieldy 28 ounces.”

And for an even funnier reference, check out the classic bagphone used by Danny Glover in the original Lethal Weapon movie, where he’s calling headquarters from an overpass.  He looks he should be directing an artillery outfit!
