Anyone almost defected?

I find the S5 very impressive. An abundant of awesome features.

But in the end, I missed the size of the Note.

Once go big, can't go any smaller :P
I bought the Tmobile S5 full retail, to keep unlimited data. The camera, display, and battery are the best available. Getting 7-8 hours of screen on time is a breath of fresh air!

I get that on my note 3 with over a day of battery life just fine. Tweak your phone right and it lasts a long time.

I'm in the same boat as you and this is sort of my plan as well. I'm just torn between the two phones. I'm not sure if I'll miss the size. I guess it's only for a few months until the Note 4 comes out if I do regret it.

I'm averaging 9 hours of screen time per charge. I've gotten as much as 11 hours and never less then 7 hours of screen time with my Note 3. The S5 is nice but overall I still don't think it's as good as the Note 3. The Note 3's real competition with be the lg g3, the lg g pro 2 or the Note 4. The sd 800 and 801 are the same chip really just the 801 is overclocked and I can overclock the Note 3.

Yeah a friend of mine got the S5 coming from a Note 2. The phone is about the same overall size and much smaller screen with larger bezels. I came from the S4 to the Note3 and the S5 would have been a nice jump from the S4 but not the Note 3. The only thing nicer is the isocell shooter. The 801 SoC is 2.5ghz but is 2.3ghz in every other phone. They really are the same chip just the S5's is actually overclocked. The gpu is the same as well just ours is clicked at 550mhz the S5 is at 578mhz. I don't need to buy a new phone to overclock my cpu and gpu. The new features likely will come to the Note 3 as well.

I was originally come on to post good luck with the S5, you may regret it. But it only took to2 days and already switched back lol
