I would blame the carriers more than manufacturers. Note3 has 32gb. Eh, but i could be wrong.
I am more than likely waiting for the big thing that is 64bit and I may wait til the software and hardware kinks are worked out. Almost got a HTC m8 the other day. If it had extra sensitivity mode where the screen could work with almost anything as a stylus I probably would've got it. Maybe next year. It is a really nice phone. First metal phone that actually felt. All these people whining for metal phones I don't understand. The metal is so thin on them they feel like plastic/tin roof when tap on them and they dent and scratch really easy. I was really impressed with HTC m8 quality but not enough there to justify spending $600 on when I have a note3 and moto x of which I still owe about $100 on. Seriously may consider the next HTC one model next year if it's 64bit and the camera module is at least 8MP, hopefully 10mp+, but has at least same quality pics as the 4mp ultra pixel. That was another downside as I need to zoom in on my pics and need the detail sometimes. Such a shame because HTC really came with it on the m8.

The GN3 got 32GB because Samsung decided to offer it that way, and only later on offered a 16GB version as a lower priced version in certain markets outside of the US. It became apparent that the US carriers wouldn't sell 32GB versions if Samsung still offered 16GB. So the answer is Samsung should only offer 32GB as the base storage on any phone and the Note should become 64GB as the base to make it "premium".
At this point the GN3 vs GS5, I am going to get the GN3 its still a high powered S800 processor, has more RAM, has a bigger display though that isn't the draw for me. But overall power and features are and the HRM is not a big draw and neither is the fingerprint scanner since US carriers are once again screwing with Android phones and leaving apple crap alone. Samsung needs to put their foot down or they will simply lose marketshare to those who offer better ways around the carriers.
