I think it depends on you. You can remove bloatware. You can even load GEL on the phone like I did. But does what you're losing from nexus 5 matter more or less than what you're gaining with note 3?
To me, s pen, bigger screen, nicer camera, better speakers, and longer battery matter more. I won't get Android first but I have a nexus 10 for that.
My 2 cents. Just to tease you, Iattached photo of note 3 with GEL.
