Samsung Galaxy Mega (TRI-BAND) [SPH-L600]

Okay, so I am the kind of person who believes bigger phones are better, and I was super excited when Samsung revealed the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3. It is also fairly cheap for a smartphone. My one question is this: Is it on Sprint? It would be just like Samsung to release this only on AT&T like they did with the Galaxy Camera and Note. I have Googled it and I can't seem to find an answer.

There have been no leaks or rumors of it coming to Sprint. Honestly I don't think it will come to Sprint. This is just another of the boatload of phones releases overseas. The Note 3 will be out in a few months. At least the Note will have good specs. The Mega is mid range at best.

Yeah that is true. Thanks. I am very disappointed in its specs. The 5.8 is even worse. I think I will just wait until the Note 3 comes out or I will just buy the GS4 Triband. My Nexus 7 2013 has the perfect screen for me right now, so I'll just stick with it and my GS3 until the GS4 Triband comes out. Thanks again!

The Sprint Samsung SPH-L600 has received Bluetooth Certification, and mtest on cloud4sites.com says it has Android 4.2.2. Early rumors state that the L600 could be the Galaxy Mega 6.3. But then again, it's only a rumor at this point.

Nice find.

Thanks to AJ, I love rocking the rumor boat, lol. Not that it's guaranteed to be released in the end, look at the Samsung SPH-L500 (it's been superseded by the SPH-L520 already).

I honestly don't know what the appeal of the Mega would be against the Note 3. Why would you want an under-spec'd device with a monster screen when you could still have a monster screen with good specs and battery life to match?

Cheep cheap! Midrange phone, cheap cheep price.

True but since most people still buy their phones on contract, the pricing difference is often completely mitigated if one just gets the right Wirefly/Amazon Wireless/etc deal. I'm also a total spec whore who is ALWAYS wanting something more, so it would drive me absolutely bonkers to have something mid-range, even if I did get some tiny little concession in device pricing (plan pricing is where the biggest expense is anyways).

Oh and will this Mega have the precious triband LTE?! Can't wait for the FCC approval!

It would be great if it does. But I'm expecting it to be Band 25 only. :(

I have a feeling Sprint will price this at $149 with 2 year contract given that AT&T is planning to sell it at that price.  I would be shocked if this sells for $99 with 2 year contract.

I got to see this baby today when I went to Tysons Corner and it's a huge screen. It drifnitely has a wow factor just from the size of the screen alone. AT&T is offering it for 149 I think. I didn't get a good look at the contract price but the retail price is much less than the Note 2 which shocked me. 479 vs 700.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
