    As we all know Samsung is not the best at updates, however they have been stepping it up lately. But Verizon on the other hand is the modern day Nero. They don't care about updating their users, and would just rather leave them stuck on an old os. So, are any of you worried about being stuck on jelly bean when android 5.0 is announced? Would you rather go nexus?

    Even on a nexus your doomed with Verizon. Good with LTE and coverage. Nothing else

    I will face my Note2 for one week as of tomorrow. I am very happy with it. As long as my phone runs well I am content. I won't dump my Note2

    Not worried at all Samsung has come along way since the days of OG galaxy S updates times.

    It is one of , if not the most capable phones in the market if this phone doesn't get it, no phone will (sans nexus).

    And if Verizon C-blocks it I'm sure Samsung will leak it.

    My Gtab 2 7"(wifi only) has gotten four updates since May and the last one brought it to jellybean os.
    No Verizon to interfere though.
    Hope the Note2 might get some love from Verizon.

    Not worried at all. I'm content with the software the phone shipped with (Jelly Bean 4.1.1). It works great as is and I really have no need or want for new features that may be in newer versions of Android. My only expectation going forward is for maintenance releases.

    My last phone (Thunderbolt) is still on Gingerbread. My daughter uses it with wifi. I'm on Jellybean because I upgraded.

    So? We're talking Verizon bottleneck here. If all other carriers update to 5.0, Verizon will be last, if ever.

    Missed the last part about "Would you rather go nexus?"

    No, I wouldn't. I have a Nexus 7 and like it, but vanilla Android just doesn't measure up for me. It lacks too many things already included in Sense or TouchWiz. Also from my experience with the Nexus 7, I'm not fond of the frequent updates, some of which have made me feel like I'm a beta tester for Google. Finally, I'm just not crazy about LG's hardware in the current Nexus 4, in particular its lack of LTE. Verizon has the best coverage where I live and I'm surrounded by LTE with grandfathered unlimited data yet, so I'd be crazy to give that up.

    And you are certainly right. But I'm just saying HTC is a little worse with updates than Samsung is.

    I'm not concerned. I have a Nexus 7 and ill get a Nexus 10 or what ever the next big Nexus tablet will be. Those will keep me up to date. I'll be fine with my GN2 being a little behind.

    Rooting and flashing for updates for me.....
    As for Android 5.0 maybe it might be on my next Galaxy phone like the Note 3 or S IV.

    When I got the Droid X 2.5 years ago it was buggy and updates were higly anticipated. But each update brought new bugs and never got better.
    Fast forward to now with the Note 2 it is amazingly stable, fast, and loaded with features.
    At this point I'd be content if no further updates arrive in the next two years. I'd be afraid that Verizon would muck with it somehow to degrade performance and reliability to encourage upgrades.

    Although I've rooted and debloated I am not seeking any new ROMs yet.
    The stock ROM is fantastic as it is so far.

    I'm already one version ahead of Verizon. Good thing about this phone is it's worldwide. As long as Samsung updates I'll be good on a close to stock custom rom
