    Default Anyone dropping the Note 3 to go back to the S4 once 4.3 hits?

    I love my note 3 but since i can get 600 for the device right now and I couldn't sell my s4 for what I wanted, I think i'm going to go back to the S4 since my gear will work with it.

    Anyone else conflicted like me?

    Yes I posted on the S4 and Note 3 Thread. This way I can get responses from the owners of both devices. Not everyone has both phones like myself. Is that a crime?

    No way not me. I loved my S4 but even with 4.3 the Note is just a different beast and I'm living the s pen. They weren't that far off before so 4.3 isn't gonna make the S4 any more comparable to the Note. Any of the reasons people choose the Note in the first place will still be there even after the S4 gets 4.3.

    But if you wanna make some money and still have a similar Touchwiz experience that will work with the gear then by all means but you'll lose out on the bigger better screen, s pen and the beast that is the snapdragon 800. On a positive note you will get a smaller package though if the Notes big size isn't your cup of tea.

    Very good points. I think at this point I'm gonna take the money and run. And thanks to some of u guys I was able to use the Verizon30 on this upgrade. I have a upgrade coming to me next year also. I'm sure the S5 will be off the hook!

    Don't see why they can't make something like a carbon fiber removable back and have real metal bands on the side instead of the plastic they use. I wouldn't mind a little more weight if they had this. Or at least use real leather for the back...

    Do you know how expensive carbon fiber is? Its also hard to mass produce, hence why only supercars use it. The have to go through a ton of human preparation and the heating process(minimum 6 hours) is not exactly energy efficient.

    True, but still, an aluminium back would be an improvement. Any other cheap metals that could be used?

    I remember my Samsung Wave(Bada software phone) used an all aluminum construction. Mother of God was it good to hold. I guess aluminum could be a plausible replacement. How would a silicone back panel feel like? It would be squishy and stuff right?

    Yeah, doesn't sound like it would be nice...
    Carbon fiber would be so good though
    Maybe rubber (or whatever the Moto X is)

    Nah, I am a happily converted GNote lover now...I love the bigger screen, the S pen, I loved my S4 but since My wife wanted one it worked out perfect, and IMO build materials are irrelevant, I mean who cares if its plastic or metal or carbon fiber...most people are going to slap a plastic case on it anyway...whether its an OtterBox, TPU, or some rhinestone crap my wife loves...but I'm already looking forward to the GS5 and GNote4 should both should be great devices...

    Nope, not a crime... just redundant - So the burning question was getting the GN3 about getting the Gear and or 4.3? Not the bigger screen and the S-pen? Personally, I like the bigger screen and the s-pen, but I suspect that's kind of the most popular response here on the Note side of this question.

    This is what happened for me too. My wife wanted the S4 so I convinced her to take mine and I grabbed the Note 3.

    Now I'm sure the S4 will be of the hook OP but then imagine what the Note 4 will offer 😜. Assuming the Note Series keeps offering slightly upgraded specs.

    Don't know about that. Most reviews said it was brighter and better color reproduction. Even from my own experience or in public at bars and stores and with friends that have an S4. People commented on how much smoother it seams and that even the screen looks better overall. I have both and while I can agree it's not night and day I did feel the same way others did comparing the two.

    Now I also read the S4 screen will look better after the 4.3 update so maybe the slight difference right now is in the software cause don't they use literally the same screen tech? So the S4 may look better after the update if they alter the brightness and colors and with the higher ppi.

    PPI is hardware, they can't change that. Only thing they can change is software settings.

    Yes I know that I was saying if they can alter the brightness and colors to match the Notes through software then on top of that it will also have the added advantage of being sharper from the greater ppi with the screen being smaller.
