Samsung's New 6.3-Inch Phone Is Bigger Than 75 Percent of Human Penises

Samsung's Galaxy Mega is pretty big. (You: How big is it?) So big that it's bigger than about 75 percent of the full grown human penises on planet Earth. Full stop.

Last year, noted penis blogger John Herrman alerted us to the phone-penis size crash course we were on. Smartphones surpassed dicks last summer—a bit ahead of schedule—but the march goes on. The Galaxy mega is 6.3 inches. And by the numbers, that's bigger than so, so many penises.

You'd never guess this, but there is some disagreement about the best way to measure a penis. We're going by the data pulled from LifeStyles condoms' Cancun study data, which has a decent stature in the not-at-all-surprisingly active dick-measuring community. Here's how they break it down:

5.052 inches: 15.9th percentile
5.877 inches: 50th percentile
6.702 inches: 84.1st percentile


By some other data, 6.3 inches could fall around the second or third standard deviation of collected dick measurements. So 75 percent is a safe guesstimate, we think, going by the data analysis we've found, but if you've got a better read, feel free to slap it in the comments.

Just for fun, here are some other items that are smaller than 6.3 inches:

  • A roll of quarters
  • A modestly sharpened #2 pencil
  • Letters E through H of an Encyclopedia Britannica
  • Most bullfrogs
  • A lighter
  • A mouse without its tail
  • A boxcutter
  • Any but the most epic joint in the world
  • A bottle of hotsauce
  • The Indian in the Cupboard
  • Two dreidels stacked
  • A stack of 1,465 dollar bills
  • 500 calories of Philly Cheesesteak at Subway
  • Again, most of your penises.
