Both are great phones. It really just comes down to the following things.
1. Updates. If you like them then it's an easy choice.
2. Removable battery
3. SD card support
4. IPS display vs. AMOLED.
5. See point #1
Overall if I had invested in an S3 I would probably wait as it seems that Samsung is trying very hard to stay on top of the updates. You have a great device in the S3 so unless you are a gadget junkie then I would hold off. The S4 is around the corner too

I have both & personally would I recommend either, yes.
Would I say the N4 is better, yes.
Would I say it's worth upgrading from the S3, probably not.
Yes the quad-core is awesome & pure Android is great, but the S3 is no slouch either.
IMO the only advantages are quad-core & pure Android, period.
If you're going to sell the S3 to pay for the N4, then alright, I guess. However, if you plan to keep both I'd say there's no point.

If you're not interested in rooting, then I'd also ask how much you do or do not like Samsung's TouchWiz changes to base Android? If you like them then that's a great reason to keep your S3. If you aren't too fond of TouchWiz, and especially if you're not into rooting, then that's an excellent reason to think of getting the nexus 4.Getting to know my new LG G2....very happy so far!

Personally, I love being free from carrier contracts. Also, I doubt you'll find a smoother running device than the N4, plus you'll always be running the latest OS, as well as knowing that any google app updates have been tested on that phone. That said, if they don't make it available for sale, it's all a moot point.Semper Fi
I love my LG Nexus 5!
