Anonymous, 22 May 2014note 3 or s5???
Which is betterI have spent some time with the Galaxy S5 with its features, comparing it with my Galaxy Note 3.
S5 - Every time Samsung comes out with a new Superior AMOLED screen model, it gets better! It's slightly more brilliant than the Note 3 than I'd like to admit. I made a comparison of an exact image on both screen, the S5 screen is better because of the pixel density is more dense.
Note 3 - It's bigger at .6" with the same Full HD. Slightly better for reading and viewing stuff, of course.
S5 - Fantastic soft feel of the new back. Good to hold with the slight curves.
Note 3 - Good leather texture, slightly harder to hold than the S5.
Battery life per charge:
S5 - The Ultra Saving battery mode will turn off all apps except up to 6 programs you set, and turns your screen into a grey scale. Samsung boasts it can stay on standby with a rate of 24 hours per 10%. On normal use, the S5 continuous usage test by Phone Arena pegged it to run just above 8 hours. The Note 3 just ran 6 hours +.
Note 3 - I whished it has an Ultra saving mode at least. Anyway, my experience is it gives me about 5 hours of actual screen timeover a period of 12 hours of heavy use (internet radio, bluetooth, hotspot, torrent downloading, email, notifications on). Light users report 3 days before they need to charge it up. I use LTE, and you can drain the entire battery in 4 hours after downloading some 20GB of torrents. That can happen in any smartphone. I do have an extra battery to change in the afternoon so I can still use it in the eening without needing to charge.
The S5 has a wonderful dual download boost by using both LTE and wifi to download stuff faster. I also love the s5's water resistance feature. The fingerprint and heartbeat sensor scanners aren't anything I'd find very useful.
The Note 3 however features a Wacom digitizer (S Pen), which is quite useful for taking notes and drawing. You can't possibly draw more details with a finger. Contrary to the trollers like Mr. Pretend Z2/T2 Ultra will say that it's a "useless stick", you'll look for it when you need to draw a map for people for directions, mark up PDFs, edit pictures, or when you just need to take down notes much faster than typing with drawing up diagrams to get the ideas. It's an abolutely very useful for those who want to be productive and creative anywhere.
Here's a video of what the S Pen can do:
It's up to you which one.

Try playing games in a fully air conditioned room.
Tcool, 22 May 2014You got a fake unit.Hi Tcool, actually N9005 of mine also tend to heat up if play game for a long time. Here in malaysia our weather is really hot. It can goes up to 37 - 38 Celsius during the daytime. So heating is happening on almost every phone. Sony, HTC, Samsung, and even the iphone 5s. Heating issue cannot be avoided. This is also one of the reason we in Malaysia less prefer metal-made phone. Metal gets hot easily, way easier than any plastic made. As long as the plastic is of good quality, my preference still goes to plastic.
