    I currently own the Galaxy Mega and have not been able to upgrade this year as i truly like the screen size. I know its not for everyone, but stepping down from 6.3 to 5.7 is a fair chunk after you are used to something.

    I would be tempted by the GN4 but have been going off Samsung recently due to stuff like the Efuse etc.

    Anyways i came across this beauty released during IFA and seems to be getting some good reviews.


    Specs Roundup

    6" 1080p IPS Panel
    All Metal Body
    Fingerprint Sensor on rear (apparently the best implementation of it on any phone)
    big Little OCT core processor
    2/3 GB ram
    Dual SIM or Single sim /Micro SD
    CAT6 LTE (fastest version)

    I may just take a punt on it see how it fares.

    Bleh no stylus, otherwise it looks pretty awesome. Great example of how bezels should be to maximize screen. I know I'm in the minority, but I just can't figure out why a screen this large would not also come with a stylus.

    I had the original note and did use the spent but switched to the Mega and its great for web browsing and media. Luckily I have no friends so I'll never look an idiot taking calls but the real estate beats out The fact its a midrange this maybe a contender

    By far the most beautiful device released this year, but it's a tad too big for me, if it would have a 5,5"display with the same specs, I would buy this immediately.

    Been really impressed by the Huawei designs recently. Yeah, the P6 and P7's look alot like the iPhone 4 series but this Mate 7 really does look good for a big phone. I think Huawei comes up with better designs than most of their Chinese counterparts including Xiaomi, Lenovo, and maybe even Oppo. The first Ascend Mate from last year looked pretty good to me. I just wished Huawei can go Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series instead of normally using MediaTek or their own SoC.
