Hello guys i really need ur opinions. Should I or should I not get this phone? I'm currently on a note 1 n am looking for a significant upgrade. It doesn't need to be a 1080p display but it need to be big. As in really big, not tablet size big but just as big as a note.
Reasons to get it:
-price is cheaper now since flagship models are out
-still a popular device
Reasons to not get it:
-almost a year old phone which means its using an older generation chipset
-8mp camera while the hype now is 13mp slowly but gradually becoming a norm.
-a newer note a.k.a note 3 is coming soon, better performance?
All opinions are welcome. Your help is very much appreciated. Thanks a lot! =D

I think I downloaded about 3 updates before downloading any other applications and games. It works smoothly without any lags and issues/errors so far. Definitely worth it. :D
I've got this and I love it... It's big screen, Super HD and I'm just enjoying it.. If you are in two minds to buy it, I recommend you to buy it.

@ Gisam : Everything will remain as it is on this update of approx 50 MB. Your phone will be optimized.
But it is advised that whenever you do a software upgrade backup your data and format your phone before updating as it optimizes your phone more.
