"Both displays are truly premium grade with rich visual quality. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has better contrast, better performance in bright light conditions and better viewing angles, but aside from that they’re fairly equal"

My main concern is the SOD issue. Otherwise I won't get myself into this trouble.
