Samsung Galaxy S5 or Samsung Galaxy Note 3?

Is the Samsung Galaxy S5 technically "better" than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3? As far as the specs go, I mean.

erm....I think the 3GB of RAM trumps any smaller updates of the s5 personally. RAM is and always has been very important to performance and with the processor being slightly better in the s5.... yada yada yada.... its a matter of personal preference really.

just reading up a little more.... IF and I mean IF the s5 ships with the 8 core CPU... its a no brainer and I am well and truly stuck with the note 3 for 22 months, so am not biased.

Haven't samsung already confirmed that it will be quad core? I really doubt it'll come with the 8 core cpu.

The z2 has the new 801 processor and also 3gb ram- so that seems to be the most powerful phone out there at the mo

Hey shadders! Both the Z2 and S5 have the same quad core 801.

They both have 2gb of ram so where you get 3gb from I do not know......

the S5 cpu is clocked a bit higher than the Z2's (2.5ghz vs 2.3 ghz) but I think the extra 1gb ram makes more of a difference than the slight difference in clock speed- making the Z2 the higher powered of the 2

2.5GHz and 3GB RAM? I'm running 4.4 on a Nexus 4 and can honestly say the phone runs just fine. Are we not just getting silly now?

For me, the Note 3 was a much more interesting handset. The S5 seems a bit dull - the series hasn't seen a significant change since the S3. It's pretty much the most dull high-end handset you could opt for...

Agree.
I'm a lot more interested in that new HTC - the dual camera to create 15x zoom? It sounds interesting. More interesting than checking my heart rate while I tweet a lie about my fitness.

I'm definitely going off Samsung phones, the Note series is the only interesting device they make nowadays, it's certainly more interesting than the S series.

I have to say, I'm getting along like a house on fire with the Moto G; I haven't turned my Note 2 on since the Moto G arrived.

I think the days of Android skins (aka TouchWiz) are over, I like having stock Android and quick updates without having to potentially invalidate my warranty. Talking of which, the Moto G got a little update yesterday :).
