    Default Galaxy S3 owners is the S5 a good enough upgrade for you needs?

    I'm asking because most of s3 owners contract is up,and coming from a 720 screen, snapdragon 400,8mp camera,no color emojis,2100mah battery,plastic slippery back I assume this is a big upgrade..ppl complaining who own s4 and note 3...all which is still on contract anyway

    Coming from an S3, I would think that the S5 is a significant upgrade. I think those that have the S4 are the ones disappointed in the offerings of the S5. I think that it is going to be an awesome device, but just not in the eyes of S4 owners.

    I own an S4, and while I am not disappointed, I am not amazed either. Coming from an S3 though, it would be a significant upgrade

    Pretty good upgrade from the S3, if you ask me.

    I still see no reason to upgrade from my S3.

    Upgrade to an LG G2... now that was a significant upgrade from my S3. LG blew me away, still king of the hill. I would wait for the G3, the S5 killer. The G2 kicked the S4 square in the proverbial nuts, haha!! Check it out, LG is on the move. Remember, I owned a Samsung for my last three phones. Peace

    My daughter made the same move from the S3 to the G2 and it was a huge move.

    Let me count the LG ways... incredible battery life, awesome screen (almost no bezel), a turbo CPU, optical image stabilization (wow photos) no Lag, incredible sound with a headset, did I mention fast? I can jump to the G3 with T Mobile and life is well, Great!!!

    Right. I forgot about the G2. Amazing phone, if you ask me.

    32GB I think. There is a variant with an SD card, but in the US it doesn't

    I thought I needed an SD card with my 32g G2, but now convinced otherwise. I use Air Droid to download pics and vids to my PC with ease. Another feature I love is the placement of the volume keys / power button. It makes perfect sense now that I use it and could never go back to old tech side rockers. Also, the knock on feature is just so cool, so fast the industry will soon copycat this action! Nothing I have thrown at this phone has slowed it down, it is rock solid and a tech wonder.

    I went S3 to moto x and love it... A phone with features I actually use.

    I also switched to a MotoX. While modest/similar specs, I like the features. Miss some of the camera features but I actually like the size and form factor better. The screen is brighter, speaker better, and better software. Will be tiding me over until I see what HTC and X successor have going.

    Yeah I agree got the cyber Monday deal. I'll be keeping an eye on lg and maybe HTC (not holding my breath there). But curious about moto x 2 or whatever.

    Nope, need a bigger screen and better specs. All of which will be handled by the note 4

    Nope. With Cyanogenmod running, the s3 still hits the sweet spot for me. Even after I move to the Moto X, which should happen soon, I'll keep and use the S3 as a stand alone wifi device.

    S3 to s4 is most certainly a substantial upgrade. Whether or not it isn't worth it is up to you. There are features on the s5 that I wished my s3 had.

    S3 to S4 was no real upgrade. That's been said multiple times in all the S4 reviews. I looked at it myself and it was not worth it at all.

    This is the problem I am having, trying to figure out if the Moto X is the phone for me. I have an S3 now and like the specs of the Moto X. For me, the screen and software implementation is right on the money. I want to get one, but would like wireless charging too. I sit at my desk and get up a lot and like to charge my phone and take it fast. I do the same at home. The S5 has wireless charging which is a big deal. If I get a little extra, that is even better. The main things for me are that the Moto X scree is good enough for me and I do not need 1080P. It is a phone and 720 to 1080 is not a big deal.

    It is tough buying a new phone. Do I want a Ferrari or is the Civic good enough. I would like both and phone buying sucks.
