Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Mega specs review and comparison

It has been confirmed that tech giant Samsung would be launching a few attractive new phones in the first quarter of 2014, but the biggest of all would be the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Mega. However similar the two phones may look, there are a few basic differences between both the phones. Let’s take a look at some of the differences.

While all the major carriers would be supporting the Galaxy Note 3, only Sprint, AT&T and US Cellular will be supporting the Galaxy Mega.

Some of the default features of the Note 3 like the DLNA, FM transmitter or receiver and the infrared blaster are missing on the Mega.

The Galaxy Note 3 comes with a Li-Ion battery, while the Mega does not. As a consequence the Mega has a maximum talk time of only 18 hours compared to the 24 hours talk time in the Note 3. 456 hours is the maximum time of the Mega compared to the 500 hours standby time of Note 3.

Mega sports a rear camera of 8 megapixels, whereas the Note 3 has a primary camera of 13 megapixels. Note 3 also has optical image stabilization, dual camera shot option as well as ‘burst mode’. None of it is sported by the Mega.

The Note 3 has an internal storage of 32GB, while the Mega has 16GB. The Galaxy Mega is your only option of a jumbo-screen phablet under $200. People who can extend their budgets a little more should go for a phone with a better display.
