    OK, I am in USA, on T-Mobile .
    I currently use Samsung note 2
    I think it is time for upgrade .
    I want a big screen phone 5.7+

    Now I also want to keep it with in reasonable cost. So here are some options I found.

    I can get:

    A Samsung note 5 used from tmo. At $500.

    A Samsung note 4 used as above for $400

    A new lg stylo 2 pluss from tmo. @ $250

    A new zte zmax pro from tmo about $200

    Can someone validate my choices and help pick the best option please.

    Thanks .


    I am closing this thread as [Solved] as I already have got a new NOTE 4 on EBay

    I would avoid getting a used phone if possible. Might want to look at Nexus 6p.

    Well, my current note 2 was bought used, from ebay 😱
    And lasted with no issues for almost 4 years. It actually still works. I just need to factory rest it and it might be good again once clean. Infact I mabe reusing it as a book reader for my wife. I just want to get a bigger screen and a better camera. Maybe a wireless charging if I can.

    Hi! You have some good options there. If I was in your shoes, I would go with the Note 5. I've heard wonderful things about it - it seems that some Note 7 users went to the 5 when the Note 7 issue occurred - and I've heard it's one of the more popular or well-received Note iterations. I would definitely recommend a Samsung product - they are on their toes now and deliver great customer service.

    Good luck making your choice, and let us know what you've decided!

    OK, I have decided and acted ,
    I ordered a like new note 4 from eBay last night.
    Several reasons, one it seams like a very good phone, best reviews all over. I do not like glass shell like note5 has.
    Removable battery and SD card. Should be here early next week.
    I will try and get wireless back for it and I will be set .

    OK, is there a way to close the thread as it is no longer needed?

    as of today I am spotting my "new" Samsung Note 4. in its new"Spigen Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Case Slim Armor Champagne Gold Case"
    not sure what people are complaining about the phone being bulky, after caring my Note 2 with ZeroLemon 9000mAh battery around for over 2 years Note 4 does not look too big. I'll bet even with otterbox case it will not be much bigger than my Note 2.

    as it is, I might see an issue with the new phone. and it will take me couple of days to confirm or deny but the battery drain is huge. I had it charged up last night and today @5AM it was @ 85%
    15% overnight just laying on the table. seams a little excessive to me.

    will have to look into wireless charging and maybe a bigger battery.

    still I love the phone over all, warts and all :-)
