So tough... I can't decide if this is finally the phone to replace my S2 or not... it has some great stuff but they left out the dust/water proof feature that I expected to be standard from Samsung because of the S5. I was also hoping for the first ever 4gb of ram... that one is nitpicking.. but it was rumored to be in this phone. Still I am sure it is going to be a great phone and I may still yet get it.

Almost forgot, if it can fully charge the phone in an hour then that would be a huge plus! I also think I heard they went backwards and made this phone USB 2.0 where the Note 3 had USB 3.0... that makes me shake my head.

First of all if you travel overseas it will not work and Samsung has lousy support and lousy software upgrades. Kit Kat 4.4.4 has problems plus $700 so as far as I'm concerned they can keep it. Check out LG instead.

yes I agree the LG GS3 is an attractive phone with lots of features.

The waterproof is the issue on this phone for me and as to Samsung's upgrade software I don't see a problem there.

I have the S4 so if I was going to jump up, I want the size of the Note and the S5 waterproof feature. I do like the protocol features supported by this phone that is a definite upgrade.

If you have a note 3 then why replace an S2? Business phone?

I do not see the craze in waterproof phones. In 22 years of me owning a cell phone I have yet to need that.
