Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 The Samsung Galaxy Mega comes with a similar feature to the Galaxy S4 in the shape of a high power touchscreen than allows you to use gloves with the device, and also gives you Air View. This function allows you to hover a finger over things like photo albums or calendar entries to see more of what's hidden beneath without having to actually open it.The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 runs Android 4.2 and has an LCD HD screen. The Mega 6.3 will have a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, and is expected to support LTE and HSPA+ networks. It will have two cameras with 8 megapixels in the rear and 1.9 megapixels in the front.
The Galaxy Mega 6.3 has a 3,200 mAh battery and can come with either 8 GB or 16 GB of internal storage. You can add a microSD card up to 64GB. Those who don't want to wait for the Note 3 have a viable alternative in the form of the Mega, though it's not as powerful. The Mega, at S$798, does seem a tad expensive for the handset's performance, but bear in mind you're really paying for the large display, which is a key feature for those who want to consume media on their smartphones. VS Asus FonePad Asus has announced the Fonepad phone and tablet (phablet) despite already having the Padfone.The Fonepad is pretty thin and light making it easy to hold in one hand. The Asus Fonepad is powered by an Intel Atom Z2420, a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and 1GB of RAM. The tablet, sorry phablet, was running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean well enough when we used the Fonepad but we did notice some lag when scrolling.According to the spec sheet here at MWC, the Fonepad will be available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB models. Unlike the Nexus 7, there's a microSD card slot for expansion (up to 32GB cards). Also included is 5GB of Asus WebStorage, free for life.
Cameras are pretty low spec at 3Mp rear and 1.3Mp front facing. This isn't great considering most users rely on their smartphone's camera for day to day snaps. Finally,The Asus FonePad tablet performs well enough and has a truly useful screen adjustment feature. It's a fine tablet, but $275 is too much if you're not planning to use the phone feature.

VS HP Slate 7 The HP Slate 7 shapes up pretty well with its spec. It boasts an ARM Dual Core Cortex-A9 1.6 GHz processor, 1GB RAM and comes with 8GB of internal storage. Importantly the Slate 7 comes with a microSD slot which can expand the memory by up to 32GB, so this makes up for the slightly small storage spec.
While there is a bit of a big gap between where the screen finishes and the edge of the tablet, the overall design of the Slate 7 is pretty good. It sports a nice stainless steel frame, and the device we saw had a metallic grey looking finish to the back (it’s also available in red), the result is an aesthetically impressive tablet. It weighs a pretty reasonable 370g and measures in at 197.1 x 116.1 x 10.7 mm.
The 7-inch screen (which as mentioned above, doesn’t come anywhere close to the edge of the tablet) isn't going to dazzle you at all. But that’s not what you expect from a cheap entry-level device. It has a screen res of 600 x 1024 pixels, and a pixel density of 170ppi, this lags someway behind its two main rivals the Nexus 4 and Kindle Fire HD, which both have a pixel densities of 216ppi. It didn’t look that bad in real life though, to be fair to the Slate 7. Price;$169.00
