    I was talking to a sales rep and asked specifically about the Mega. I asked her how many her store had sold and she said "one" I will never condemn or criticize anyone for spending their money on a product they want.

    My question though is, how big is too big to those that bought and like the Mega? 6.3 is bordering on tablet size. Would you use a 7" phone, 10" phone, what is your personal limit?

    I asked the rep the same question and got the same response, but bought it anyway because when using it in the store, I saw how peppy it was (even w lower specs) and had an lcd screen for a change. Amoled really is over saturated compared to lcd, so I figured that is another advantage.

    I think the limit size will be once a device is no longer pocketable. The Mega definitely still is.

    Had heard about this on tech sites but then saw it in person. Wow is it big! When you actually see it it's pretty crazy. Not for me but great for someone who doesn't have a tablet and wants to have best of both..

    I think 6.3" is just about my limit. I would say 6" but what is .3"? I'm geared more towards the Note 3 for it features, specs, and versatility.

    When I bought was the fourth customer of the day. There were only on request and even bought a set of the show .
    I bought it, and not to any other short term.
    Just a revelation. Ideal for the Internet, movies.
    I compared it with the Galaxy Tab 7 and the screen is smaller but it's just a tiny dimensions for it are really small for the size of the screen. It has a very thin frame around the screen. Just Mega is virtually the same screen.
    There is no problem with playing videos in full HD sizes 6-7 GB.
    I got him a card Samsung 64GB SD XC previously purchased where everything is located.

    How's the performance, especially compared with the S4 and Note II?

    Performance is pretty identical to both the S4 and N2 - maybe a tad slower (I mean half of one second slower). Otherwise, it is pretty similar. When I first used it at the att store, I thought there was no way that this monster would be a good performer, but I was wrong and then bought it.

    I'm really not too sad to not be part of the N3 crowd, as I'm enjoying this larger, lcd screen more.

    I think this is the biggest device I would use as a phone simply because with my big hands it fits me perfectly and it just fits in my pocket if it will not fit in my pocket than that is too big for me!

    I think a lot of people use that as the limiting factor. It's funny, when I think about it, the thing that limits size for me is whether or not I can get a belt-clip case for it.

    I think I stopped using a belt clip with my first cell phone 20 years ago, I just never liked them.

    Well, I refuse to put my phone in my pocket...it might get lint and stuff. I just put the phone in the belt clip case and clip that to my pocket. I'm weird.

    Contact AT&T and ask them for an unlock code. Not sure of their requirements, but they would be the first to ask.

    I have to say that the Mega has caught my eye.

    This is my size limit. The screen is huge. I was always intrigued by the Mega and now that I have it I know this is as big as I want to go.

    That's what everyone says about their phone, then when something bigger comes out they say it again

    I'm a LG pro owner but have given the mega a look that screen is the main draw I can tell it's not as fast as my LG pro put it not exactly slow ether and the No contract price is under $500 so I might get it anyway cannot have enough tech toys

    Sold my Note 3 and bought the Mega 6.3 More value for the money, performance is exellent and the LCD screen is impressive for being 720p. Batterylife is better on the Mega, camera is better on the Note 3 but it is still good enough on the Mega tho :-)

    I bought the mega because I am a knitter and got tired of carrying my phone and either a tablet or my laptop. So when it was time for a free upgrade I bought the Mega...problem solved.

    Like others I suppose the limit would be set by Wrangler jeans. If I can still pocket it, down far enough that is is on the leg when I sit, that would be the cut-off for me.
    I bought mine from eBay for a bout half the Sprint price. So no payments.
    I like my Mega. If you think it's large, you should see it with the ""Ballistic" case. I had dropped my Galaxy Nexus so often the screen was showing chips.
    As for me, the most use of my cell phone is to read e-books. Read in bed, standing in long queue, or even at long traffic signals.
    Oh, and Google Maps. The screen is adequate for navigation and doesn't make me want to buy an expensive GPS unit.
    I have the device rooted but I am still using the stock ROM. Like others I would like to have Lolipop, but honestly I haven't fully conquered Ket-Kat.
    Maybe next year I will go to a custom ROM.
