What is the Samsung Galaxy Mega? The 6.3-inch screen of the Mega makes the Galaxy S4 with a 5-inch display look dainty. Sure it will be too large for some. There are many that just prefer a smaller smartphone.

AT&T offers the Mega or $150 with a two-year agreement which is half of the current price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with a 5.5-inch display. The Mega doesn't include the stylus of the Note series.

The Mega should appeal to those interested in a small tablet more than making calls. The Mega can make calls of course, but it's form factor may challenge some.

Tech writer Anick Jesdanun didn't exactly gush over the Mega, but it is a lower-cost option that offers a lot of screen-size for the money.
