    Default If you had to decide today.....

    Would you get the Note 3 or the S5?

    I'm asking because I'm upgrading in about 3 weeks.

    I have the LG G2 now. Good device, but I'm ready for something different.

    Note 3... The s5 801 cpu is a minor upgrade but the gpu is the same. The note 3 you get 32gb of storage and 3gb of ram

    The s-pen and 32gb of memory make the Note 3 the better choice for me personally. I was just speaking with a friend the other day and recommended the S5 to her. She didn't have any interest in the s-pen and she only needs the storage for photos and music so she can use an SD card with no worries. The S5 is a great phone. I just wouldn't choose it over the Note 3 for my use.

    If I had to choose between one of those, I would get the Note 3. If I could make myself wait for a few months, I would wait for the Note 4. If the rumors are to be believed, its going to be a nice upgrade.

    Interesting points.

    The S5's water resistance is the main reason I'm even considering it. However, the the Note 3 seems more functional for my needs, driven by the S-pen feature and screen size.

    I haven't done much research yet, but it looks like there are some great devices coming out soon. Namely the LG G3, Sony Xperia Z2, and the Note 4. It may be just worth waiting.....

    I'd get the LG G3. It looks like a damn good phone. I'm not impressed with Samsung products lately.

    If you can wait, wait for the next Note.

    It really depends on your preferences. I just upgraded 3 wks ago from iPhone and briefly debated between these two and opted for the Note 3 because I wanted the larger screen and pen. I'm so glad I got it. Didn't feel like waiting a few months for the 4 as I was ready now. Always the next something is around the bend. Might have waited for the 4 had it been only a month until release but not 4 months.

    If I was in the market to buy a phone TODAY, even though I like the water resistant S5 capabilities, I would get the Note3 for several reasons, but mostly because of the 32gb, screen real estate and S-Pen.

    My wife has a new S5, nice phone. But I would pick the N3 every time. I love mine. Bigger screen, s-pen.... Can't wait for the N4!!!

    I would get note 3 . My thing with devices is the biggest, best quality device. Right now, spec wise, the Note 3 is still the best biggest phone out there.

    Note 3 SIZE IS EVERYTHING

    Well he said he had a g2 and wants something different... Obviously the g3 isn't something "different" (it obviously is but more like evolution). Also as far as the g3 goes meh a 3000 mah battery with a qhd 5.5 inch screen probably has the battery life that's worse then the g2

    I think the note 3 will win in this case. The S pen is just too intriguing to pass up. Thanks for your replies.

    Note 3. Larger screen, spen and the associated OS extensions. It's clearly a personal choice but for myself....

    Note 3 hands down. You should really go and look at them though. They are actually both very nice but the Note offers things the S5 just doesn't mostly the S Pen and its features. They aren't just for show like a lot of features can be. They are actually quite useful and I use them fairly often. Still, nothing like looking at them up close and personal like.

    Note 3. Seemed huge especially going from a BB 9900, but I got used to it right away!

    No question the GN3 is a great choice.
    The question to be answered is do you wait until Sept/Oct for the GN4?
    I got my GN3 in Jan of this year. I did not want to wait for the GS5 to come out.
    I may have to find a way to get the GN4 after it comes out I'm in a 2 year contract.
