I sat on my G Note 2 phone the other day and now it looks like a half moon (large Nexus S)...

State have said it can't be fixed (not even with a ten ton roller and new screen!)
They have said however their supplier Noel Lemming will provide me with a new 'like for like' replacement - great.

Um, no, I rang them and they don't stock the G note 2 anymore as it is EOL. The guy on the phone said the replacement will be similar in price and features.

What phone, similar in price and features could it be? Apart from the Samsung Note series of phones, nothing else has a stylus that I know of? Also what else is comparable to a RRP $550 phone with a 5.5" screen? I'm assuming it needs to be on the Noel Lemming catalogue.

Surely the Galaxy Note 3 is the replacement?

I agree with macuser it will be the replacement for it and cost that the Note 2 would have been when it was first bought. I'm with lantern and broke my S2 a while back and they replaced with an S3

Galaxy S8


Garmin  Vivoactive 3

I would imagine the Galaxy Note 3 Neo to be the most obvious choice, as it's essentially a Note 2 with Note 3 styling.

You will get a Note3 I imagine. If you don't like what they offer, just tell them why (must be reasonable). If there is a feature on the old one you don't have on the new one, let them know.

The Noel Leeming lady rang this morning and asked if I could pick up the new GN3 from my local store, she advised me that I could also use the value of the GN3 ($1k) as a credit on another phone.

I did a little research, and couldn't find anything better... I did want a Google Play version of the Galaxy S5, or a Nexus 5, but obviously they don't sell those models.

So I now have a SM-N9005 32GB. Deciding if I should sell it as I really don't want a touchwiz phone... And CM11 is not stable enough for my liking...
