    ok, I am on T-Mobile USA
    I currently use Samsung Note2.
    as it getting a bit long in the tooth I want to upgrade, but I have a budget. I did and still doing some research now.

    what I want is
    #1 a bigger screen. Note2 is 5.2" I want to go at least 5.7
    #2 a good camera. my phone has replaced my camera long time ago, but I want to get better camera than Note2.

    #3 a good battery.
    #3.5 is not overly important but if I can have it a Wireless charging.

    I was looking at several options from tmo.

    a. an LG Stylo 2 Pro (so,so reviews and options on it)
    b. a ZTE ZMax Pro (good screen but still in limbo on it as the camera is not overly good)

    c. A Pre-owned Note 5. can get it for $500 and stores pusshing for insurance on it ??? your opinion
    the non-removable battery is keeping me on the fence.

    d. A Pre-owned Note 4. can get it for $400 ????

    e. ??? any other options? I would love to have the stylus but will not dismiss a non-stylus phone if it meets my other needs/wants

    thanks V

    PS: I am closing this thread as I have found my answer and got a NOTE 4 on EBAY

    please read the OP. I have a phone with 5.2" screen, my #1 point is, I want a bigger screen.

    htc one is 5.0 screen,
    samsung galaxy a5 is 5.2.

    Yes my Note2 needs a refresh, but it is still a fully functional phone, so if I want to stay with 5.2 screen I could just keep the note2. do a factory refresh on it and ta-da.
    however, I want a bigger screen and a better camera.

    I think I have made my decision. I will go for Note 4.
    just need to decide if I should get it through t-mobile or catch a break on eBay.
    found several on eBay going for between $280 and $330 all marked as New Unlocked but it is hard to believe a New 4 yo phone. so I assume high quality refurb.

    EDIT: found couple of units on Amazon, also marked as new
    think I might go with Amazon. it usually stands by the merchandise bought from it's web.

    ok, after reading much reviews around the net,
    I decided to get the phone through t-mobile.
    it would be only about $60 or $70 more but should be safer in the end.

    if anyone thinks different please say so.
