The i9500 is the international version which don't support LTE. While i9505 have LTE. I think better buy the one that available in your country as each country have different model sold.

Please buy an i9505 as it has a much better developer base. And the Adreno GPU on i9505 has OpenGL 3.0, which would help out in gaming.

Get I9506 if you want the most powerful plus LTE, it has the Snapdragon800 CPU from the Note 3.

Get I9505 if you want to try Custom ROMs and LTE

Get I9500 if you want powerful with the Best Camera sensor and don't care much for custom ROMs and aren't bothered about LTE.

If you want to flash some custom ROMs, forget about i9506 variant. Although it has same specs as Note3, you can't flash custom kernels neither ROMs that are for the last one.

Actually it's the worst android phone i've ever owned. It has virtually no support by developers, even CWM is not very handy!
