Note 4 comes after September, I'd get that if I could wait.

Well, the note 4 will most likely have a 2560x1440 display that is 5.7"+. Powering all those pixels will almost certainly be the snapdragon 805 with 3 gbs of ddr3 ram. According to extremetech the 805's cpu is only about 5% faster than the snapdragon 801, but the gpu is 40% more powerful. Keep in mind though that a 2560x1440 display has to push 77% more pixels than a 1920x1080 display. It's also worth mentioning that battery life is supposed to improve by something like 20%. In the end I think either device will be a great choice, but the note 4 may be worth checking out if you still have something like a 5/5s and are ok with the size. If you're more comfortable with a large phone as opposed to a giant phone, then go with the S5

Having just bought the S5, when I went to get it I tried the showroom non working display models of the S5 and the Note 3 in my trouser pocket, and I found that for practical purposes the S5 is the biggest phone that will comfortably fit in a side trouser pocket.

A minor point but to me when I'm wearing trousers and shirt in summer, an important one.

If I can fit a Note 3 in a pair of skinny jeans as a woman, you lot with your massive pockets in your jeans shouldn't complain about the size of the phone not fitting

That said, specwise, the Note 4. Without a shadow of a doubt. Not only is it half a year younger and will likely come with Android 5.0, it's also got much better hardware.

While the leaked specs are relatively trustworthy, none of us know any of the real features of the Note 4.

You'll have to be patient and wait for announcement.
