Description

The Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is a 5.8-inch Android Jelly Bean smartphone. It is equipped with a 1.4GHz dual core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage — expandable via a microSD.

The latest in the popular line of Samsung's Galaxy S smartphones, the Galaxy S4 ups the ante with a larger 5-inch 1080p display and 2600 mAh battery to match. Android 4.2.2 Jelly Beans runs on either an Exynos 5 or Snapdragon 600 processor (depending on region).

The Samsung Galaxy S III is the successor to the popular Galaxy S II Android smartphone and is upgraded in almost every way from its predecessor. It features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel rear camera, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II, successor to the famously huge Galaxy Note, ups the ante with an even larger 5.5 inch screen. Like other Samsung Note products, it's built with stylus use in mind, with several OS enhancements to support it. Additionally, the Note II's hardware has been redesigned to resemble that of the Galaxy S III.
