When it comes to the physical built these phones are surprisingly made out of plastic like build, it comes handy when you need to remove the cover for changing batteries.

Even after being large in size, both the Smartphones are light in weight, thanks to the plastic finish body. You will not feel the weight while carrying it in your hand or even in your pocket.


The resolution of Mega 6.3 and 5.8 are decent if not impressive. The screen size difference is what sets them apart, the resolution is however for both the phones is same with 233 PPI. If you recall it is exactly 34 PPI lesser than the Galaxy Note II. This indicates that the display of both the phones is brilliant with display made of TFT LCD.

Processor and RAM

However, the clock speed is yet to be revealed but one can expect something that is mid-range. The RAM is 1.5 GB in both the versions that indicates mid-range performance. Tthe make for both the processors are yet to be revealed. We can only expect that both are mid-range just as the RAM.

For all those who are techno-geeks the software will be a pleasant surprise for them. Both the Smartphones sport the latest version of the Android Software 4.2 Jelly Bean. Other things include Nature UX by TouchWiz. This indicates the inclusion of Galaxy S 4’s features. You can easily expect S Translator in real time, S travel for information on trip and the Air view for allowing a preview of your e-mails and pictures by a mere hovering of your finger above the device.
