Both of the devices have a decent design and build quality for large screen device. Samsung giving its typical looks with the home key and same design also makes Mega 6.3 a part of the Galaxy series with just expanding the screen size. Both of them have plasticky body but the point worth mentioning is Samsung manages to pack it in 8.8mm thickness and Huawei does it in 9.9mm.
Apart from this the screen size which is 6.1-inch on the Huawei Ascend Mate and 6.3-inch on Samsung Galaxy Mega.
The screen size difference has been discussed above but there is difference with the display quality as well. Both of them having the HD resolution that is 1280×720 pixels ( 720p ) very well plays with the big screen but the color richness and picture quality proves out to be better on Huawei Ascend Mate. This not only makes the experience better but also provides a realistic view of what we are looking at.
Camera on both of the devices is exactly the same having capable of clicking pictures upto 8MP resolution that too with support of LED flash. The difference comes with the front facing camera which is 1MP on Huawei Ascend Mate and 1.9MP on Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3.

Another hardware addition to the Galaxy Mega is the IR blaster which isn’t there on Ascend Mate.
