Both are great products. But in Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 vs Google Nexus 7 comparison there are features that make Mega better option Â
Samsung has begun to roll out its large screen smartphones the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Mega 6.3 into global markets. They have just been released in Indian market for prices respectively at Rs. 25,100 and Rs. 31,490. The new Samsung products sport large screens and they are designed with a goal to satisfy the kind of customers, who look for handsets that have the power of a tablet and portability of a smartphone. That means both the Mega devices are meant for users, who want a highly portable tablet PC.
When it comes to the Galaxy Mega 6.3, the biggest of the duo, the device is to take on Google Nexus 7, a high performance midsize tablet PC built by Asus. In this comparison, we check the areas where the Galaxy Mega 6.3 can beat the Nexus 7, which is evidently to get an advanced and shiny second upgrade sometime this year. Let us move to the comparison and see which device is the best for an on-the-go tablet user.
More Portable, Lightweight
With a small 6.3-inch display, slim body, less weight and small dimensions, the Galaxy Mega is enormously portable than Nexus 7. It has the dimensions of 6.60 x 3.46 x 0.31 inches and weight of just 199 grams. It is when the Nexus 7 measures in at 7.81 x 4.72 x 0.41 inches and a weight of 340 grams. Thus, the Mega 6.3 is a lightweight and small â€˜tabletâ€™ for day to day uses. Business users may now prefer the Mega 6.3 to a midsize tablet including Nexus 7.
Better Pixel Density
Thanks to its smaller display, the Mega 6.3 provides better pixel density. Offering a fine resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, the 6.3-inch TFT screen of the gadget packs a pixel density of 233-ppi. It is when the larger Nexus 7 obviously has less pixel density of 216-ppi, which is wonderful for a midsize tablet, however. Even though, the next Nexus 7 upgrade is anticipated to get a far better display screen and resolution.
Rich Multimedia Experience
Being a smartphone basically, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 is a great multimedia machine, indeed. It has more options than the Nexus 7 to let you take images, video, listen to music and watch movies. The device mounts an 8MP rear camera, which is capable to record video at better clarity in help of features like geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, HDR and more. It has a 1.9MP front camera as well for letting you make video chats. It is when the Nexus 7 has only a basic 1.2MP front camera for video calling.
The Mega 6.3 has better processor, though not a quad core one with the Nexus 7. It is running on a dual core 1.7GHz Krait Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU, which is backed by 1.5GB of RAM and an Adreno 305 graphical processor.
At the same time, the Nexus has a quad core CPU, but this Nvidia Tegra 3-based Cortex-A9 processor is cloaking at a speed of rather slower 1.2GHz. It also falls short in RAM and GPU capacities respectively with a 1GB unit and a ULP GeForce graphics card. But the new next generation Nexus 7 is likely to feature a rather solid Qualcomm processor.
When it comes to pricing, the Google Nexus 7 is certainly the winner. The major selling point of the device is its lower price. The basic 16GB model is valued at just $199, targeting at Amazon Kindle Fire, Apple iPad Mini and more. The premium 32GB of Nexus 7 is priced at $249, which is also cheaper when compared to iPad Mini. But, the Samsung device in discussion comes for a big price, which is nothing amazing at all. Samsung is to sell the SIM free variant of the device for something around $750.
