    On Verizon Wireless...Been rocking the Galaxy Nexus for almost two years now and want to upgrade. Have my eye on the Note 3 but if the S5 isn't going to be too far ahead and especially with much better specs than I'm willing to wait.

    The first thing I would say is TouchWiz going on a diet....

    So you're thinking TouchWiz will be toned down a lot on the S5? Honestly I've played around with my mom's S4 and a Note 3 in store and I really don't mind it. Although that might be because I'm so used to stock google UI and anything different is giving me that "wow" feeling...

    I am hoping that TW will be toned down. An OS taking up nearly 8GB is absurd.

    Any idea on S5 timeline for Verizon? If pushing passed March/April I think I might just jump on the Note 3.

    I heard about an early release, but I wouldn't bank on it.

    March is what I saw somewhere. Can't remember. As it is only a rumor I didn't pay much attention to it.

    Honest answer: No on knows. Anyone that says they know is lying.

    Answer from past experience: Announcement in march/April. Release in may/June.

    Some posted a "rumor" that it would be closer to a February announcement. I think it is a load of baseless garbage.

    I did not touchwiz I had t for 4 months and got the Nexus 5. but some people see it different. I would wait to see what and if the holiday season bring anything i don't think so but if it is between the note 3 or GS4 I would go with note 3

    That would be best because as stated anything else is a guess at best. Chances are good April/May is when we will see it but thats just going off recent history nothing else.

    I don't mind Touchwiz either. That being said, I always root and use a different browser anyways, so I don't really utilize most of the TW features.
    I also don't see the S5 being available until late Spring/early summer (which is normally when the Galaxy series has been released) Of course the International version always comes out a month two prior, so we'll see.
    (Looking forward to it as well. But am more interested in the newer high end Galaxy "F" series)

    Any Verizon promotions going on at the moment? Also any experiences upgrading through Amazon? They are offering it for $249 as opposed to $299 from Verizon..

    Best Buy is always a better deal than Verizon. Hey... why the Note 3 vs the S4????

    I would, plastic feels weird after metal and breaks more easily

    Sorry, but that's a false assumption. It's not plastic per se, but polycarbonate and very durable. I've owned two Galaxy phones for the past 4+ years and never had a problem with the back cracking or breaking. (And I remove the back cover frequently) Not to mention, it will be in a case anyways.....at least if you make a habit of taking care of your smartphones.
    Just my 2 cents

    Your best choice now would be the note 3. There isn't any point waiting for s5

    The GS4 was announced in February 2013 and launched in April 2013 so about 2 months after the unveiling. So if they hold to that typical run time they should release it in April 2014. I know Samsung pushes their phones in more countries on more carriers at the same time but really why not get it rolling faster and over 2 months instead of dragging their feet?
