    What do you guys think should I return my new note 3 and wait for a s5 or would that be a bad choice?

    My wife has the Note 3 and I would rather have the S5. The only reason, IMO, that the Note 3 makes sense is for watching videos and S PEN. The screen size may be bigger but the resolution is still 1080x1920. The Note 3 has a lower DPI then the S4 so obviously lower than the S5. Its all about end user preference. Some people like the larger screen though I dont see what you get out of the larger screen.

    I'd keep the Note 3. It's not a big upgrade, if at all. It all depends on your usage though; if you got the Note 3 in the first place I assume you had a reason for that. If the S5 doesn't meet those same needs, don't return it

    I bought the note 3 because it has better specs than the s5 and i liked the stylus concept but to be honest i don't use it much the reason I am contemplating getting the s5 is because rumors are saying that a new note 4 is on the horizon and i like having the latest phones like the s5.

    If you can afford to upgrade every six months, go for it

    The only real difference between the Note 3 and S5 is that the S5 is water-resistant and has a fingerprint scanner, and that ultra power saving mode...other than that its pretty much the same

    Its not the fact that i can afford to upgrade every 6 months or not its just that i bought the note 3 a few days ago on my upgrade as i got a half decent deal and i can still return it for another phone.

    S5 is just plain better than the note 3 and its not a phablet. Do the trade if you can.

    What phone do you have now and can you stand to use it until the S5 comes out? If so, wait it out. I got the note 3 because of the huge screen. I rarely use the s pen. I would've went with that 6 inch sony device if it wasn't for the huge bezels.

    Ah, in that case I'd keep it. The Note is still a great phone, and it's new to you, so you shouldn't have an issue using it until the Note 4 is released

    Keep the Note 3, then swap it for the Note 4 which will likely have a better screen and far better specs than the S5 in 6 months.

    Don't think we'll see a huge spec bump in just six months. Probably same everything except RAM and CPU

    Smooth .. I think there is more than what you mention........... but anyway...... I am dumping my Note 3 for the 5....... you stayed with the S4 and had no experience with the N3..... so I give up the 3 any time. My Note 3 was not that good and I found out that i couldn't care less about the Pen......... and really the size of the 3 .......even though is somewhat manegeable .... its a bit to big ............that is my reason.

    Two different classes of phones. Once you go with the phablets, it's hard to go back. I went with the One and S4 after the Note 2...And I couldn't wait to get on the Note 3. Be careful.
