Deal: Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 available from £22 per month

Head over to OneStopPhoneShop, another Carphone Warehouse subsidiary, if you want to acquire the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 phablet on a contract. The online outlet sells the recently-announced device for £22 per month on a two year contract. That's a total cost of ownership of £528 which is quite decent for a phone whose SIM Free price hovers around £300.

The offer, on O2, includes 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data allowance. As for the phablet itself, it is positioned as a more affordable alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It loses the S Pen, the capacitive stylus, and associated functionalities but gets a much bigger display (6.3in), albeit with a similar resolution (1,280 x 720).

The rest of the features include a dual-core system-on-chip clocked at 1.7GHz, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera with full HD video capabilities, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, NFC, a microSD card slot, DLNA capabilities, a microUSB port, Wi-Fi, 8GB onboard storage, a 3,200mAh battery and up to 17 hours talk time.

As for any recent Samsung smartphones with big screens, it comes with a number of dedicated features like "split view" which allows multi-tasking.
