Very simple question with an even simpler answer: the N9000 only has 3G connectivity, the N9005 has 4G/LTE connectivity, so the question you need to ask yourself is twofold:

  • Do I live in an area with good LTE coverage (or is it about to get it)?
  • Can I afford to use LTE network speeds? LTE is super-fast so your data consumption will skyrocket if you're not already used to it. And this could mean a hefty phone bill unless you have an unlimited data plan, which is becoming less common as LTE spreads.
If money is no object, or even if you don't really plan on using LTE straight away, I would buy the N9005 anyway, assuming it's not significantly more expensive, because LTE is expanding rapidly, especially in the US and it's only a matter of time before you'l be wishing you had got it.
