I don't agree with you when you say that nexus 4 have lower visibility in sunlight... may be you didn't have turned your auto brightness on when you went out..

"Cons" regarding Samsung Galaxy Note 3, "No Office suite out of the box" isn't a cons coz of POLARIS OFFICE 5 available in Samsung App store as a one of default galaxy app for Galaxy Note 3.
Only 2 bst options are
1-Samsung Galaxy Note 3 &
2-Samsung Galaxy S4

and all Android devices are same just improved hardware and no more! even the gsy is same as s4, note 3, htc, xperia etc... all of them are same! they are just add hardware then cost it depending on hardware! I say this because I'm an Android user and I just giving my observation and nothing is wrong with that!
