Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Do more, experience more

Multi Window on the Samsung Galaxy MEGA makes multi-tasking easier than ever. By splitting your screen, you can run multiple apps side by side. So whether you’re watching YouTube and want to keep on browsing, or you’re checking messages and want to open a music playlist, you can do it all at the same time. Better still, thanks to the Samsung Galaxy MEGA’s already considerable display, you’ll get the full experience even on half the screen.
Free up your hands and multi-task with ease

Free up your hands and multi-task with ease

When you first pick up a Samsung Galaxy MEGA, the first thing you’ll notice is its size, and then how right it feels in your hand. The truth is, owning a smartphone that’s big and brilliant can have all sorts of everyday benefits. It means you can do everything you need using just one hand, with a shift dial pad, SwiftKey™ keyboard, calculator and more, ready and waiting at your fingertips.

You’ll never watch TV the same way again

The WatchON app with the Samsung Galaxy MEGA means the end of channel surfing, and the start of something completely different for TV. Now you can browse for shows by genre and eye-catching graphic menus with customized recommendations based on your viewing habits making that essential viewing easier than ever to find. You can even change channels and tweak the volume with a remote control option for some old-school TV time.

Smart, simple and intuitive usability

Because the Samsung Galaxy MEGA is larger than life, it’s social like a smartphone but user-friendly and practical like a tablet. Its familiar and intuitive touch screen helps you customize and organize your display so everything’s set up just the way you like it. What’s more, because the screen’s bigger, the font and layout are bigger too, so all you have to do is open and enjoy.

Keep your phone alert whenever it’s in use

With Smart Stay, there’s no danger of your Samsung Galaxy MEGA switching to Sleep mode when you least expect it. The latest eye-tracking technology means your screen keeps a bright display for as long as you’re looking, so there’s no shutting down in the middle of that all-important text or must-see video. Simply put, the Samsung Galaxy MEGA waits until you’ve fully switched off until it knows it can do the same.

Browse your phone with the wave of a finger

Thanks to Air View, you can access content and preview folders on the Samsung Galaxy MEGA without touching the screen. By doing little more than hovering your finger, you can preview emails, text messages and photo and video galleries at a moment’s notice. For the socially connected, it’s the perfect solution.

A fast and smooth smartphone that’s easily customized

While the Samsung Galaxy MEGA is a sight to behold, there’s plenty going on behind the scenes to make this smartphone more than just eye candy. The latest version of Android Jelly Bean gives you lock screen widgets, increased speed and the intuitive Google Now software that serves up useful information just for you. And with LTE technology, you can send and receive files at exceptional speeds.

You say the word, your phone does the work

Use your handset but not your hands with the Samsung Galaxy MEGA’s voice control options. From answering or rejecting incoming calls and stopping or snoozing alarms, to controlling the music player and even taking pictures, voice control is perfect for those times when your fingers can’t do the talking.

Big power for a maximized experience

For a smartphone as impressive as the Samsung Galaxy MEGA, you need the power to bring it to life. And with the 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, there’s more than enough under the hood to put it through its paces all day, every day. Add the dependability of a mighty 3200 mAh battery, and you’ll be able to max out your phone however you want, with greater time between charges. So whether you’re watching a movie or playing DJ at a house party, the Samsung Galaxy MEGA has the power to keep you and all your friends connected and entertained.

All you need!!

I love this phone and I love the large size. It's like a small tablet that's also a phone. The large display makes it easy to use for sending email,using apps and surfing the net.

It's also great for watching videos on youtube, netflix or wherever. I use it to create documents, read books, keep up with work while on the move and look up information at any time. Best phone I have ever had!!!!

The smartphone with best value

contrary to what most reviews think, there is actually a good demand for such a big screen phones in the market. I like big screen and if Samsung canmake a bigger 7" Mega phone in the future I won't be hesitate to get one.

I carry the Mega not just for making calls, SMS, but also treat it as tablet to watch movies, play games so Mega is one in all. Some people do not like big phones but they carry another bigger tablet so what is the point to waste more money. The Mega still fits into my jeans pocket and I love it so much. Samsung please upgrade the Mega in next generation and I am sure I will get one too.
