I don't have either of them - my N9005 is due (hopefully) tomorrow. My choice was based on, they are pretty much the same phone, just one does 4G/LTE. Given past trends about access/network speeds, 4G is only going to get more prevalent, so I figure the N9005 will have better resale value in a year or so if I am ready to upgrade.
And not sure about Baghdad, but in Australia there is bugger all price difference between the 2 models.
Never doubt there is Truth, just doubt that you have it!
