Re: Additional benefits

What is the advantage or benefit of having a Samsung Galaxy S5 ove Samsung Galaxy S3?

The biggest advantage I would say is the fact that it is newer. Support for the S3 will stop at 4.4, where as the S5 will get continued support for the next 18 months at least. By support, I mean OS updates.
Another benefit is updated hardware.
Are you looking at getting either device?

If I were to get an S3 now, what version would it ship with?

That would depend on the device's history. If you're buying a retail device out-of-the-box, it will likely arrive running 4.0.4 as this is the software version it initially shipped with. In that case, you'll be prompted with system updates shortly after first powering the device on. If you're buying a used or refurbished model, it may have been updated already.
