Default Note 3 vs Galaxy s5

If rumours are correct, and the screen size is the very slightest bit smaller, would you sell your note 3 for a Galaxy s5.

The reason I ask this is because on my other thread for kit Kat btu being delayed and us being shafted, would the s5 get the latest next update?
And if the screen is brighter, and better looking, and 4k video recording etc etc, would you sacrifice a slightly smaller screen for the s5 if it turns out better? Or do we stick with the note 3 for great battery life?

No SPen. Less battery life. Smaller screen. Not for me. Maybe a good phone for my girlfriend, but definitely not me, because my hands are big.

It's going to be interesting though, only according to rumours, different design, and better specs,

It'll take a lot for me to downgrade my screen size, I don't use SPEN so not fussed about that... So depends what it looks like really.

Sorry guys, I'm noob, I can't comprehend what BTU is... What is it guys ?


P.S: If S5 comes with QHD resolution, 400+ dpi, at least 5.3 inch display, 3gb of ram, a GREAT OIS on camera, better sound quality and 60fps 4k record. It will be nice, if i have the money i totally change it.

No, I'd be much more likely to wait for the Note 4, and if rumors are true, the recent Google talks toward a less modified UI would be a great thing. By then, we are likely to have even better camera optics. I'll wait and be happy with what I've got.

Can't see going to a smaller screen.

I will not be downgrading to a s5 - lol

There is a reason why Note phones come out with iphones in the fall, and the note4 will b better than s5.

Also, I just got my N3, just rooted it, and haven't even scratched the surface yet as far as what it can do, only a fool would give it up this early.
(the s5 is for the s3 owners what want to use their eligible upgrade).
