Samsung & AT&T have launched a smartphone with the biggest screen yet in the U.S. The Samsung Galaxy Mega has a …wait for it… 6.3 inch screen! Compare that to the iPhone 5, which has a 4 inch screen, and the S4, which has a 5 inch screen. This thing really lives up to its name…it’s huge! You will not need a separate tablet if you carry this around. $149 on a two year contract.
