There's a guy on Craigslist looking to trade his nexus 5 off. Do you guys think it'd be a good trade?

Not really. Note3 has a higher value than the Nexus 5. Best to sell your note 3 and buy the nexus 5 probably even get a brand new piece.

have to agree, while the n5 is a better phone, the note 3 sells for more money

From what I've seen on Craigslist in my area (Washington, DC) the Note 3 goes for around $300-$320. The Nexus 5 32gb goes for around $250-$300.

You'll miss the screen real estate .... Note 3 is a better phone unless you want the latest OS. Better battery, larger sceen, better camera, expandable storage..etc

You're all wrong look at Swappa and locally on Craigslist, as much as I would like the Note 3 to sell more that's not the case. I sold my note 3 for $425, although some might be selling for $475+ people aren't buying them. I found a new sealed Nexus 5 for $380 on eBay who has overstock on them and in desperate need to sell and with tempered glass protector and case I spend another $20, so I pocketed $25 big deal. But ya no way Note 3 is selling for more right now. Oh and with bootloader locked like in my case I'm on AT&T (SCREW you AT&T) I rather have my Nexus 5 any day regardless of screen size. I'm just wish OnePlus One hurry's the heck up and sells the darn phone ASAP.

You could always ask if he is interested in buying your Note 3 + cash. I don't know the prices in US, but in Europe it +/- 100 euro differences between the two. Don't know the state of your phone and the accessories.
