Lets not forget the fact that if can't get wet. If you drop it its more than likely gonna be all banged up.. Good thing its got a crappy camera and you couldn't replace your point and shoot with it, because a good camera needs to have an option to replace the battery.. I mean is there any point and shoots that have a permanent battery? Go camping ever? Wanna go to disney world for the day and take hundreds of photos of the kids? like a normal point and shoot you better have another battery.

If it were any bigger my pinky would pass out or cramp up or something bad. And if it were any faster it would be pulling up apps as I thought of them.

The note 3 seems massive, but once you use it you'll never want to use a smaller screen again. I ditched mine for an Nexus 5, mainly for the Knox reasons and the pure hassle of it, but I still miss a bigger screen.

I came from a Note 2 and much prefer the s5 size. It fits in the hand better and the screen isn't that much smaller really. Still got the note 2 as a back up.

I actually did this side by side with the M8. I noticed the M8 was ridiculously fast at opening and switching between apps and the S5 was always slightly behind. After changing the animations on the S5 to 0.5x, BAM same speed.

Thanks man for the tip, the lag is gone. For all the people that say they don't see lag, use an HTC M8 for 30 minutes then use an S5, you will then see the lag.

Oh god please stop with the camera crap, if you care that much about a camera get a Nokia. I own the M8 and the S5 and the picture quality on both is great. And if it needs to be so damn good buy a real camera.

I owned the T-Mobile Z1s, never again, and yes it's very odd feeling in the hand.

Had mine for a few days now after moving from my S3.

Was a bit worried about touchwiz and lag but I'm on nova launcher and there is very little lag apart from opening the camera and gallery apps which I was expecting anyway.

So far love the phone. The one handed mode is excellent for when you are not sitting down. The camera is better than my s3.

Must say tho, there really isn't THAT much improvement from the s3, at the end of the day I think we have reaches a plateau in smart phones where each next version isn't all that much better than the previous.

I don't know why all these people are preferring up the M8. I have an M8, Note 3, S5 and 5s and none of them really lag unless you download a pirate app. The M8 is fast, does have a great design and awesome speakers. but the wasted bezel, below par camera and lack of option are a deal breaker. It is fast and zippy but because the lack of options. Its like the android version of the iphone lol. Great phone still!!!

People comparing the note 3 to the S5. Both are awesome phones. My preference would be the S5 over the Note 3. Note 3 is a power horse and that massive screen is awesome.....if you don't have a tablet or laptop lol. I prefer the S5 for a couple reasons, the camera, fingerprint scanner, and the 5.1 inch screen. The note 3's 5.7 inch screen isn't that much bigger, but having the bigger screen makes the phone huge and into the phablet category. Just awkward to use sometimes and I see no point of having a phablet when I have a phone, tablet, and laptop!

All phones listed above are awesome phones in their own respects, anyone owning any of them would be happy! Just a personal preference!
