Awesome news, found a unlocked note 2 but...they also have a unlocked htc one for the same price.

How were the devices in sun light and did the battery get warm?

 

These are my choices http://www.ebay.com/...=Unlocked&rt=nc

Really wish I could experience an SSD but of course my bank tells me that I can not.

I can explain tomorrow (no time atm) but I'd go for the Note 2.

I know the advantages.

Bigger battery life, screen

 

But what I'm worried about is it getting hot and glare out side.

While the htc seems to be speced a bit higher I'm not that big on the design the bezels are bleh to me.

Getting hot isn't really a big deal, my S II used to get really hot. Any phone will get hot if you're using it a lot. I don't remember the Note II getting overly hot, though. Warm, maybe, but not overly hot. Glare isn't bad, but the IPS screens (like the LG G2) do a lot better in sunlight.

I took an impulse buy and bought a galaxy s4 for $350 hopefully I can unlock it and get my nexus 4 returned, That would just be a $150 upgrade well worth it.

I don't want to be a downer, but the S4 is a small note II with bad battery life.

I'm not saying it's big for a 5200, I'm just saying it's big full stop. :lol: Wear it in your shirt pocket, it'll protect you from a gunshot to the heart. :P

Guessed you heard about the htc thing I can imagine getting shot between two people would go like this

Person 1: Imma shot you

Person 2: Hah, yeah right...

Person 1: Why wouldn't you be scared?

Person 2: My phones bulletproof is why and it's tapped to my heart, so please don't shoot anywhere but at my heart.
