    Nothing specific, the Note 3 is slightly better specced and has more features. The S4 is no slouch either. Heart says Note 3, head says S4... just trying to get some user opinions before I part with cash...

    EDIT: Cash is the issue here. I'm the type of person that'll turn his penny over a hundred times before parting with it. So, the raw numbers are Note 3 for R8900, S4 for R6300. That a R2600 difference which is a lot of moolah...

    EDIT 2: R2600 can get me a new top-o-the-line mobo or graphics card or a Haswell chip or those powertools I've been lusting after or two new knives to add to my collection...

    I recently upgraded to the S4 from the S3 and I couldn't be happier. I was thinking about the Note 3 for awhile but after having some hands on time with my brothers, I am glad I went with the S4. The bigger screen on the Note is quite nice but I feel like it would be an extremely uncomfortable to use if you don't have larger hands.

    As for the internals, my S4 runs all of my apps and processes flawlessly. I couldn't justify spending the extra money on faster hardware that I wouldn't even notice. The only upside to the Note 3 that I could see was the extra battery life. This really wasn't an issue for me though because my phone is rooted and I can go about 2-3 days without charging it.

    Anyways I hope this helped and let us know what you end up getting.

    Went ahead and ordered the S4. Should be here in a few days. And no new mobo for me, there are two lovely new knives I have my eyes on (Kershaw and Spyderco)...

    Yay!

    Nice call. You won't regret it. Plus who can complain with a new Kershaw and Spyderco? Two of the best knife companies out there.

    Good idea. Now maybe you can get a Benchmade to go along with that new Kershaw and Spyderco.
