I see no sound reason to get a m8 nor a s5 as an Note 3 owner. I few at best minor features to get into another large purchase. If you got money to blow and really love technology, why not. I am a big Samsung fan. Mainly because of my experience with their devices and appliances. The heat rate thing is neat on the s5. But I plan on purchasing the gear 2 and can use that for heart rate. Sure the camera is better. But I don't take pictures for a living nor attend a photography group. IMO I really cant see the Note 3 being beat anytime soon.

Why would you guys even consider the new HTC One?
4MP ultra crap which is as bad as before and design wise, it's even uglier than the old one.
It doesn't even record videos in 4k and I wonder why is that?
Photo quality is a big deal for most of us and I even think the Note 3 is a step down in terms of photo quality compared to the Note 2.

I hope T-Mobile gets the Sony Xperia Z2 with 32GB internal storage but that may not happen until autumn.

I agree with everything you said except the camera quality on note 3 compared to note 2. I can't tell you the number of people that are overly impressed by the pics I've taken with my note 3, never got as many when I had the note 2.


Last year's HTC One was a good phone, I have many friends who own it and they were previous iPhone users that now swear to never go back to crapple. The new M8 design is garbage and that bezel is unforgiving! I would love if samsung got rid of their samsung logo in front of the phone and put it on back instead, thus being able to achieve a 6+" note 4 that remains around the same size as our note 3.


I don't mind the physical home button I do like it, but I also wouldn't mind to see Samsung really impress everyone this year and try doing awayp with it and go full onscreen capacitive buttons instead. While I'm at it let's see Samsung be the first Android phablet to have 4 gb ram and 64 gb default internal storage!!

The note 3 has a 13mp camera and the note 2 has 8mp, just to mention specs. Now I am no photographer, but I have friends with a note 2 who camera does not compare. Besides the note 3 is so overkill, there is no reason to really upgrade but for more specs. Bigger screen, 2k or 4k, 4g ram, 64 bit process or 801 or whatever is available at that time. I like the idea of moving the logo round back and eliminating the home button, maybe even place it on the side. Like the camera button on the HTC evo LTE. And maximum the front of the phone.
