Big Phones On Little People

Here is a fun little post. I thought phones like the Note II and the HTC One and even S4 were big; but what Samsung, Sony, Etc are coming out with are just obnoxious. Yet, for some reason I want one anyway!

I will have to see how I feel about Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra and Samsung’s Note III when they are available for purchase. Holy Cow, the Xperia Z Ultra’s display is 6.4 inches! How big will the Note III actually be?!

These are some pics of the Galaxy Mega 6.3 (Not very high spec, but it gets the job done well). This thing has a 6.3 inch display and is the newer, bigger brother of the Galaxy Mega 5.8. It was a dummy phone but François and I could not help but to take a moment to poke some fun =)


This is bigger than my whole body!


Poor little HTC One (Now running on Android 4.2.2 Android Revolution Rom)!




Mr. François gave it a shot. Sorry for my terrible camera work but he moved! I kid, I moved.

Surprisingly, I was able to sorta get it into my pocket but pics for this did not happen.

The quest for the best obnoxiously huge phone is on! Which one will you all choose?

HI! My name is Erica Griffin. I am known on the interwebs as The Technology Nerd Who Likes to Film Stuff. I create insanely in-depth technology reviews as well as blog my experiences about what it is like to incorporate them into everyday living! I am from San Diego, CA. I went to the University of California, San Diego for my bachelors degree in Cognitive Science (I studied brains and hormones and why people do what they do). I specialized in Human Computer Interaction. Then I minored in Digital Media Production. Mix that all together and you get THE TECHNOLOGY NERD WHO LIKES TO FILM STUFF hehe. I love my boyfriend, François Simond, aka Supercurio, from XDA. He means everything to me and has been so supportive of me through all this! I love tech (obviously), I like to sing, I like to make origami models, I love to travel, I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior....

  1. I’d love to hear what you think about the Mega vs the Note 2. I want a larger as most of what I use a phone for is media, I very early actually use a phone for making calls. But I’m not sure if I would find the spen on the note 2 a useful feature. Also I think the LCD screen on on the mega could beca benefit over the omoled on note.

  2. I’m waiting for note 3 or Z Ultra. Z is to small, used to note. 6,3! Must have! But Mega have god battery life, of what I read.
    When are you posting a wallpaper of you?

      1. Rumor has it that Motorola is coming out with a 6.99.999.9 display dubed the “Moto Monster” j/k hey you never know

      2. Holy shit! A snowballs chance in hell, that you read my comment, I thought.
        On my laptop I have wallpapers that changes every 2 minutes. As a theme i have my favorit women. For example Kari Byron ( Mythbusters), Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds), Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner and some swedish beauties. I looked for highres pictures of you, like your profil picture, but couldn’t find any.
        Now for something different. Are you going to test xperia Z? Interested in your opinion.

  3. Watching your YT review helped me decide the Note 2 is the phone for me, I got it Saturday.
    Its an awesome pocket rocket computer and I have seen some YT videos where people use it for a home computer hooked to their big screen tv’s.
    I liked the Mega but it cant compare to the Note 2. The Note 2 is Huge and it can do almost anything. If the note 3 is much bigger I’ll be surprised but I wont need a new phone now until the Note V comes out.
    It’ll be interesting what unfolds over the next year, with all the speculation I could start a rumor myself 😉
    As always I am entertained by your charismatic presence, even if it is still life. keep up the good work.

  4. I was also for big phones. I think an 5 inch is pretty perfect I had for a little while an 6 inch China phone just to test and the size was pretty much big. I have big hands and everything. But it surely does look enormous on u. But on a other note I see u r still in France. How is that been for u so far? And how much longer are gonna be in France? Did u go anywhere else in Europe? I might move back to USA by end of the year again. I am not sure yet.

  5. I think big phones are not bad at all specially for people that wears glasses and can’t see that clear, big screens are good. By the way out of all reviewers Erica is my favorite one cause she really goes deep into a phone’s specs in reviews. Good job Erica .

  6. Just found you. Watched your review of the Q5. Have always come back to the BB for the keyboard but my eyes are getting poor for browsing. Have been scared to upgrade the bold to the Q10 but I will now. I also have a mega for the big screen and keep it close by but carry the BB all the time. I probably will never go back to having only one phone as like vehicles there is no such thing as one that does it all. Keep up the good work. You are awesome!
