    Hey Guys, was looking at the Note 3 for an upgrade in which i may be able to get for free or possibly the S5 for free as well. Dont feel like gettng the 299 price for the note 4. Any suggestions/feedback with the note 3 as your all users of the device day to day or am i better off getting the s5 for free. Thanks

    If you prefer smaller phones then you can't go wrong with the S5. We have one in the family. It has a great display, a good camera, and is fast on its feet.

    If size doesn't bother you then definitely get the Note 3 instead. This is the only phone I have ever been happy with. I've had all of the Galaxy phones and will be selling my Note 3 as I just received the email telling me my Note Edge has shipped.

    The screen resolution and camera are better on the S5. That's not saying the resolution is bad on the Note 3. Most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference. But side by side looking at the same photo or Web page is where it is noticeable. The S5 is also water resistant.

    My wife has the S5 right now. She just ordered a Note 4. She really likes the S5 a lot which surprised me since she was iPhone-4-life until she got it. She wants the bigger screen now.

    Options wise the Note 3 wins hands down. You simply cannot beat the functionality of the S-Pen.

    yeah know the s5 is solid no doubt coming from an s4 is it really even worth upgrading to s5,. But i do want the note 4 but just the price is too high right now and can get the note 3 for free maybe go that route...

    If you don't use your phone a lot I would go with the S5. If you play a lot of games, browse the Web, watch YouTube, movies etc then get the Note 3.

    Yeah, this was a concern for many S4 users, (at least the way the specs looked "on paper" ) but most of those that did go ahead and upgrade to the S5 feel the same way you do.
    I upgraded from the S3 so you can imagine how happy I am with this device.

    S5 tap'n

    Great choice. I had only had the S4 long enough to wait for the Note 3 launch, but the S4 was a huge step forward from the S3 I had. The S3 was a huge lag fest.
