    Hey everyone, been reading around the forum for a bit and decided to finally join! My names Nick, and Im in the process of doing an upgrade for a new device. Ive been really wanting the note 2, and read a lot of reviews and heard nothing but good things about it. SO my question(s) is, would it be worth it to upgrade to the note 2, or to a newer htc one or s4? All three have been taunting me it seems lol, but I posted this here because mostly im interested in the note 2 and I'm curious to see what people think of the device/idea to upgrade to it.

    I love my note2, upgraded my wife to s4, wow is that thing the cats meow. I love the fact of the big screen on 2, a little awkward to handle but tired eyes are rewarded. If sight challenges are not an issue. Go with s4 or a note3 if available. either way can't go wrong.

    Hi Nick, Welcome!
    I love the Note 2 and wouldn't trade it for the S4. What do you currently use?

    You won't be sorry if you pick any of the three you mentioned. The best for you would depend what you want in a phone.

    If HTC One came with an expandable external storage, and removable battery, I'll probably pick it over the S4. But of the three, I'll still pick the N2.

    And that's because of the screen size, stylus and battery longevity.

    But that's just me.

    I don't think you can really go wrong with any of those choices. Here's the thing. If you've waited this long to upgrade, I don't see any reason not to hold out until October/November (only 3-4 months away). By then, the Note 3, HTC's supposed competitor to Samsung's Note series, as well as the Optimus G2 should be out and available or on the verge of release.

    At that time, there will probably be even better deals for upgrading to the Note 2, which would still be a "valid" choice, especially if you get a great deal for it.

    My advice is wait, but if you can't hold out that long, then select purely based on your needs and the device that will suit you the best. If you want a big screen, would find the s-pen extremely useful, and don't mind the additional size, go with the Note 2. If you would prefer a more pocketable option, upgraded software options, and extra storage is important, go with the GS4. If you don't need that much storage space, prefer a very clean/nice form factor, and would rather have a metal build, go with the HTC One.

    Based on the leaked images of the G2 (e.g. Optimus G2), that might be out much sooner than the Note 3 or the HTC competitor. Even with the oddly placed power button on the back and volume rocker, it still looks very nice.
