7 Phones You Shouldn’t Buy Right Now (2014)



Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Like the Galaxy S3, the Galaxy Note 2 was once a shining star in the smartphone world. It was (and is) a huge upgrade over the orignal Galaxy Note but for reasons similar to the Galaxy S3, it's declined to the point that we can no longer recommend the device to friends, family or readers.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is cheap but so is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Note 3 is better in every single possible way. It's worth noting that the Galaxy Note 3 is only a year in which means that it will get Android 5.0 Lollipop and could get another update from Google, depending on timing.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 is expensive but the Galaxy Note 3 is not and we highly recommend it over the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, a device that'll probably get stuck on Android 4.4 and isn't worth the investment going forward.

    So we should not buy three generation old phones. OK then, you talked me into it.

    I couldn’t agree more. I bought the Samsung Galaxy S3 in December 2013. It is so slow! I can’t wait until my contact is up so I can replace it.

    It’s completely frustrating that the manufacturers purposely leave updates to existing phones in the dust to encourage purchases of their newest generation of phones.

    If a manufacturer ever begins to be as good about supporting existing phones as their newest phones, they will have my loyalty for life.

      Just don’t buy Samsung. Their Touchwiz UI is so shitty. But phones like the Note 4 can run it smoothly but apparently the S5 is a no go. If your looking for a new phone get the HTC One M8 or M9 best phone I have ever had, and I have had the Oneplus One, Note 3, Blackberry Z10, Nexus 5 and iPhone 5S.
