kitkat is big joke from google
even wave2(ics) is faster than note2(kitkat)
google was saying at the time of release of kitkat that it is optimised for low ram device
but its very hard to find anything running official kitkat with less than 1 gb ram

BTW to my understanding virtual RAM partitions on solid storage are very likely to damage it if I'm not wrong.

And yeah, KKs main goal was to fix the nonsensical performance hit taken from the 4.3 update, IMO they could have done even better by trying to optimize it for even lower end hardware, such changes would be noted around the whole device lineup, still its noticeably better than 4.3 and pretty close to 4.2/4.1 levels

zRam doesn't damage nand or SD, but swap does.
zRam use real RAM and compress it, but swap create file on SD or Nand, and constantly write on it.
Flash memory have a limited write lifetime (like SSD), so, using swap is not good for flash memory.
Not dangerous, but it use it faster.

But, I did not make the swap file on SD card, but in the internal partition of bada, that is the bada_app or something like that. All I know is that it is in the internal memory, so if I use it, will it damage it ?

It's flash memory, so yes.

Yeah, as BenzoX said, use a microSD for the swap partition, if you kill the internal storage you'll probably be screwed.

OK! So, thats the kind of sh!t you dont wanna do. Deleting it ASAP. Thanks for the info guys.

But, without that, the ROM is pretty slow.
