My Personal Experience

With Galaxy S5:
I personally got my hands on the New Galaxy S5, touched it, felt it, navigated the Menu, and even had a one-on-one experience with a Samsung Galaxy Official, where he threw the phone into a bowl of water, just to prove to us the audience, that it was truly WATER-RESISTANT! I capture that part very well.
With Galaxy Note 3 Neo:
Although I have No personal experiences with this device yet, (I will surely get my hands-on soon), The Galaxy Note 3 Neo is an excellent Option that’s cheaper if you’ve always wanted a Galaxy Note 3,

Neo is ALMOST SAME, yet lower type of Note 3.
Unless you pay attention to detail, you won’t notice any difference in the size and weight between a Galaxy Note 3 and a Neo.


We have seen the differences up there, the processor in our New Galaxy S5 is higher, enabling it to be faster at multitasking than Note 3 Neo.
Talk-back Comments from Note 3 experience-users still say the new Galaxy S5 still doesn’t beat their Note 3 devices, despite the water-proof and higher camera pixels features, (most still believe Note 3will run faster than Galaxy S5, since Note 3 has 3GB RAM, and new S5 came with only 2GB RAM).
For this reason, fans who were held back from buying Note 3 because of the Price may now go ahead and get a Galaxy Note 3 Neo.

  1. Nice Post. Samsung Galaxy S5 is really the best Smartphone of 2014 so far, it even has some other super features apart from the Heart Rate Monitor, Fingerprint Scanner and Download Booster we all know. I personally think its better than Galaxy Note 3 Neo, have you read of the iPhone Gold which was used as wedding gifts ? The post was also published on GSMArena
