I currently have a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 x. It is very slow when browsing internet and crashes when playing games. So i am looking for a new phone. Considering my budget and tab i am looking for something that is $300 or less. The galaxy note 2's price and specs are appealing. I also like the idea of the Spen and think I will find a lot of use out of it. Is it worth getting an older phone like the note 2? Will it last me 2 years? I'm not looking into the latest technology, but functional would be great.
