It is clear that over time smartphones have gotten bigger and bigger. Now it's the norm but years ago, when 4,5 - 5 inch devices were the preference of users, finding larger terminals was the exception.

Yet there were. Phones that almost looked like tablets and looked ridiculously huge when they were released. Remember these three?

Samsung Galaxy Mega

The Samsung Galaxy Mega was a 6,3-inch behemoth, a strange thing to see in 2013



The new Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra has a 6,9-inch screen, but the device we are going to talk about is from 2013, era in which the terminals were quite small in terms of size.

The Samsung Galaxy Mega was introduced in 2013 and the first thing that stood out was the its 6,3-inch screen, something huge at the time. The phone also had quite large measurements at 167mm long x 90mm wide.

The device was clearly designed for anyone looking for a huge screen, but the truth is that the rest of the specs weren't accompanied. Snapdragon 400 and only 8 GB of storage and all this at a fairly high price, about $ 578.

Sony Xperia Z Ultra

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra, released in 2013, was too big for most users

We are still in the year 2013. Sony also wanted to aim for the big phone and it has launched a huge device in almost every way.

6,4 inch screen, measures 179,4 x 92,2 x 6,5 mm and weighs 212 grams. Obviously it wasn't easy to carry, much less to keep in your pocket.



Of course, its interior was somewhat better than the previous Samsung model since we had a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

Motorola Nexus 6


The Nexus 6 was very large for the time

The Nexus family was the ultimate exponent of pure Android. Google terminals have delighted lovers of the green robot operating system and despite their many flaws, as a general rule they have been the favorite phones of all who gave priority to performance and updates.

The Nexus 5 was undoubtedly one of the best phones on the market, even if its successor was by no means similar. If the Nexus 5 was a fairly compact phone, Google and Motorola decided the Model 6 wasn't going to be.


6-inch screen and dimensions of 159,3 x 83 x 10,1 mm, all with a weight of 185 grams. The Nexus 6 was heavily criticized by Google phone lovers mainly because they wanted something more compact.

Despite this, the device was fully compliant and the time has put it where it deserved. Without a doubt, a great option at the moment.
