    Note 3, definitely! Smaller overall footprint, MUCH better screen, great camera, improved internals, updated software... if you can afford it, totally worth the difference in price. However, if money is a concern, the Note 2 is still a very capable device, just not top of the line anymore.

    Lots of complaints about battery drain on the 3. I'm upgrade eligible (have the 2 now)but this issue has got me on the sidelines.

    99% of the time the drain issues are caused by apps. Maybe the first couple builds released have had bugs but my note gets a full day with severely heavy usage (3-4 hrs screen time & a few hrs steaming music with dozens of emails, txt, calls.

    The note 2 is a very capable device which was the absolute top model of 2012. But still the speed is there with no lags.
    So i guess the question is, would you like to spent 670 euro, or 350 euro for the Note 2. (sorry i don't know the dollar prices).

    Personally i went for the Note 2, because the price was too high for the Note 3. For that money i can buy a really good PC. And there is really only 1 functionality i miss on the note 2. Thats when i write something on the s-note, i want to convert it late to text.

    Price certainly makes a difference. Verizon had the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for $200 with $200 visa prepaid card earlier this month on contract. Seemed like a no brainer to me for those on Verizon.

    The Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II was $50 with $200 visa prepaid card on Cyber Monday on contract.

    The Verizon Note 3 supports band 4 lte which should give better performance in densely populated areas.

    Definitely does not feel like a "refreshed" Note2.

    I had no problems with my Note 2, it was a great device.
    The last 3 months that I was using the Note 2 (before upgrading) I had rooted it with a custom ROM and removed all of the crap bloatware and it was much better in terms of response.

    I have the note2. Love it. I have played with the 3. Now I want it. Lol. But my update to 4.3 makes me pleased. It was good before. Best phone ever. Tough choice you are in. Both are excellent. But if I had the option I would go with the note3 simply because its the new version. I have no complaints. Samsung Note category is THE BEST

    I have had the Note 2 since 2012. There isn't a lot to complain, the biggest problem for me is its low full brightness, at least in summer. Also remember that Note 2 has 720p screen, when the Note 3 has a full HD 1080p display. So if you have the money, of course go and buy the Note 3. The Note 2 ain't bad though at all, if you want to save money. I've passed the Note 3 and think I'm gonna buy the Note 4 for my next phone.

    edit: Yeah this was pretty old topic, sorry.
