need a sincere suggestion please. which one should i buy? samsung galaxy note3 or Galaxy s5?
I fiddled around with the first Galaxy Note. I realized it has only 1 GB of RAM, apps are limited to only 2 GB, 5.3" AMOLED screen and has only 2500mAh battery. It was ahead of its time in late 2011.
Now it's with a family member and I just bought a 5000mAh extended battery for it.
This is what removable battery system is all about - extending the life of the device. Sealed batteries just limits them, to make you want to buy one ever year. This is meant to be tools, not for status, with fake gold finishes. We are not limited iOS users that NEED to carry around powerbanks, because they want thin fragile phones.
My Note 3 now has 10000 mAh Zerolemon battery and 128 GB for all my needs till it finally breaks down. Probably will even skip the Note 6 if it has disappointing sealed battery. If all things of the next Galaxy Note are sealed batteries, I'm seriously thinking of getting a Note 4 and get that with a Zerolemon 10000mAh battery.

price and successor tag is just for filling specs sheet but all th... moreNote 3 < Note 4 > Note.5
Note 3 > Note.5
Features sets for each are different. This is where Samsung is failing - features we enjoyed, they remove on the next. Silly decision making.
Note 3 = Note 4 = Note 5
price and successor tag is just for filling specs sheet but all the three are just same ! Nearly.
The lack of memory expansion and removable battery stopped me from getting the Note(point)5. I call it the point 5 because I think it's half of any of the previous Galaxy Notes. Since then, I have upgraded my microSD card to 128GB, had 10000mAh battery.
Note.5 also missing on/DISCONTINUED features:
*Infrared Remote Controller
*micro USB 3.0 which is up to 10 times faster than 2.0
*S Pen annotation on S Calendar
*finger Air view
Sure, the point5 has better cameras, fingerprint scanner, and a useless hear beat sensor. But missing the all important memory expansion and removable battery system for more power-user options was a real deal breaker.
Keep your Note 3, and hope all the missing features will be back on the Note 6.

Dinesh, 28 Mar 2016Camera quality is degrading... How to improve camera quality ?Try changing the resolution setting to 13MP at 4:3 if you want to go for best quality pics on note 3. I find it takes better photos. Hope this helps!

Anonymous, 28 Mar 2016android 5.0 has animation issues and performance issues so n900 and n9005 needs android 6.0 !note 3 N9005 is going okay for me. But it would be good to get 6.0. But theres no news of yet that note 3 will receive it. But dont quote me on it just incase im wrong. As samsung can change thier mind with updates. I would really hope samsung will give note 3 6.0. But have to wait and see. As samsung keep saying the same thing, keep checking on thier website. Cant get a straight answer from them. But i agree it needs update even if its only 5.1.1 which is running smooth on note edge. Just have to wait and see. Dont want to get hopes up Anonymous.
