Install the cm11 kitKat rom on it and enable art. I still have mine and it's increased performance due to kitkat is amazing.

I did too, but for GPS and battery life it's in both cases a very big upgrade. Can't compare to the Note 3 or S4 though as I didn't had those ones...

Just in terms of battery life...the S4 is not away...but I assume that the note 3 yes. It has a bigger battery and a bigger backlight...but not a "bigger" and all the rest.
