Depending on the popularity of the phone and when the next new best phone drops. I don't see any soon as this phone is proving to be a great phone. I strongly recommend the extra $50-100 for the note 2. As was pointed out there are places you can save a little, just keep in mind with places like Amazon there is a 180 day contract with them you can't make any changes to your line or there is a etf you will be charged. Pointing this out just in case you were doing what I did and upgrade a line with plans of transferring the phone to a different line
Either way I think it's worth the extra money for the note 2.
