    Default Does it make sense to go from a S4 to Note 3?

    I love the S4 but the note 3 is tempting. Who all will attempt to make the switch from S4 to Note 3 and why?

    I'm doing it, Bigger screen, and S Pen are the main reasons im switching. And I wanted the Galaxy Gear right now. So need the N3 for that also.

    Glad to hear that. Do you think the screen will be too big to handle or will we get used to it. 5 inches just seems perfect to me.

    I don't have an S4, but I made the switch from the S3 to the Note 2 and when the S4 came out, I was disappointed. It wasn't enough to make me want to leave the Note line again. Check out the specs for yourself and see if it's enough to make you switch. I personally couldn't imagine going to a device with a smaller screen after using the Note 2. The Note 3 is just going to simply be better.

    I originally came from the 4s iphone to s4 galaxy. Screen seemed big and it was what I wanted. But now im use to it and it feels normal size to me. So im going to assume I will feel the same way with the note3 after I start using it..

    I'm not a note 3 user yet, but I'll say that I did the switch from the s3 to the note2, then to the s4. Why I dunno, it seemed like smaller was going to be better but in the end I'm very disappointed with the s4. I'll say that I will be a note user from this point forward. The phone overall isn't that much bigger, and really after a couple days everything else will just seem too small. Just my 2 cents. I mean honestly if you have tiny hands and have no use for any of the specs on the note 3 then keep your s4, but if you don't mind the bigger phone and think that the note is for you, you'll adjust just fine! I know I can't wait to get away from the s4 I downgraded to

    S-pen and battery are the two biggest reasons I'm making the switch over to the GN3 from the GS4.

    Love my Note II, the screen is perfect and I'm sure the Note 3 will be beautiful as well.

    I am going to hand off my s4 to my wife and selling her s3 and then get the note 3 for myself
    I had the note 2 prior to the s4. It feels a little heavy sometine if I hold it long enough. The note 3 will be lighter so I guess it will be ok. Otherwise, I have 15 days to return

    I am. I had a nexus 10 and a S4. I really only used the nexus 10 on my breaks at work but the wifi is so horrible that I really couldn't use the tablet. So I sold it and am selling my S4 now and figured the Note 3 would be a nice combination of the two devices. I don't have any issues with my S4, it's a wonderful device. But the Note 3 should fit my needs well.

    Doing the switch from the S4 to the Note 3 as well. Going to sell the S4 to Gazelle so the $250 will cushion the blow of the $700 for the Note 3

    Yep, and I've had my S4 for less than 3 months. Like most have said, bigger and S-Pen

    I admit to S4 to N3 jumping as well. I want a capable DAC and I love blacked out apps but I also remember why I started using them. Blacked out apps are easier to see in direct sunlight. The N3 reportedly has top notch direct sunlight visibility.

    I returned my GS4 after 12 days and activated a crappy flip phone, been rocking that about 3 weeks or so now and its really painful to deal with. So the GN3 for me at least IS worth it.

    I am very tempted but my only concern is the screen size. I don't have any qualms of using the device in Public. I just feel so right with the 5 inch screen on S4 so am a bit hesitant to go bigger. I have medium hands so the S4 just feels right.

    Best advice, go to your store when they get the note 3 as a display model and give it a try for a few minutes. The display will seem huge, but after 2 weeks you'll grow accustomed to it. I mean there is a 14 day return policy as well....

    I have an HTC One and wanted to swap with S4 because my eyes got cataract operation and I can see better the fonts of Amoled screen (very high contrast).
    The Note 3 would bee even better for my eyes but after trying a Note 2 at samsung shop I found it too big and nearly impossible to use one handed.
    Also I am used to put my phone in my shorts when jogging,it will look very weird with a Note 3.
    Also the price will surely be very different,I think about +150$ so I dunno

    It does if you want the bigger screen / features that only the Note 3 has .

    This question's answer depends on if you need the s-pen or not. Other specs are just bonus. However, other way around the question is very easy one. I doubt very much, that I would go ever back to the S-series.

    Hi,

    went from Note 1 to S3 to HTC One to Note 3 now.

    I need that screen!

    I may be doing the same, and think it makes complete sense. The spec bump in nearly every aspect and including additional software tweaks with the S-Pen make it worth it. I'm actually going from an S4 to a Dev Edition Moto X to try out the "stock" feel again. If I don't like it, I'll be selling it and buying an N3 in a couple weeks. I used a Note 2 for a couple months earlier this year. I loved everything about it aside from the size. Sometimes it was an issue. But I know if I gave it a little more time it would have just become the norm.
