If you'd rather have the S5, then I think you should do the trade.

I have the note 3. Wife has s5. Both are great phones. The size is the thing that I have not been able to leave the note series behind. Love the screen size and I use the pen and apps for work.

I think S5 is more valuable unless you need to digitizer pen. I find the pen pretty useful on Note3, but all this AT&T crap and no root / bootloader lockdown is making me look elsewhere. I will never buy AT&T branded phone again.

Bought the S5 a week ago and took it back two days ago for the Note 3 and I love the difference between the two. If you like the pen then the Note 3 is for you. If you don't like the pen, then you should get the S5. Two awesome devices

I'd call them near even. If we ever get kernel flashing ability I believe the note will have a longer life span due to an extra gig of ram.

Bought an s5 last week, really nice phone. I loved image quality of the screen on it. However decided to try a note 3 out and I like it more. The s5 imo looks more aesthetically pleasing and the screen looks better to me. However I didn't like the size of the phone. I only realized this after using the note 3. The s5 is a size for me where one handed sucked and two handing still was kind of strange. I wanted a smaller phone for one handed use. Then after having the note 3, I realized I can two hand type really well and comfortably on the note vs the s5 which was uncomfortable both one or two handed for me. It's weird. Anyway I think both are nice phones however the main thing that pushed me over was having root and roms. The bloatware pissed me off and even the note 3 had a ton of **** and popups before I could root it. Luckily I found someone selling still on 4.3.
