Default S5 vs Note 2 vs Note 3

Is there anything on the s5 or the note 3 that I cannot do on my note 2(rooted and on custom ROM off course) ?
I know that the infrared remote thing and the s health things dont wprk.
The camera is not THAT good but its good enough for normal use
The battery in Note2 is better than s5.(I'm not very sure though)
And off course the stylus..too useful for me

My sister is looking to buy a new phone. Note 2 is the cheapest of these.. Should we consider note 2 then ?

Hello ,
Yeah ofcourse , Note 3 and S5 are honestly very costly . If you buy a Note 2 and root it and install BlackTox Rom or DN3 Rom then it becomes an ultimate gadget . When I bought Note 2 it was the latest flagship . But as Samsung every year releases 2 flagships , Note 2 became old . Then these revolutionary ROMs were created by our respectful devs which gave a lifeline to my note 2 and I'm very satisfied with it . If your sister doesn't hesitate in buying Note 2 , then I would definitely recommend that you should go for Note 2 :thumbup::thumbup:

I agree with what Aeyan said but one thing we should keep in mind Note II won't see the next big android release since Google will stop supporting it soon.Compared to Note 3 which will get 5.0 for sure. So if you do root your sister's phone and such the latest version she can be on will be 4.4.2 or 4.4.3.So Note 3 might be a better investment compared to Note II.

I agree..so arent the ports as good? I'm sorry I'm still a beginner
For eg: my old phone was an sk17i. I broke the screen on that one but on the dev page there's always a new 4.4 rom

The current ports are awesome but most of us have had our phones for around a year if not more.So most likely we'd upgrade to note 4 this fall.We've been happy with what the developers are offering but since it's a TW based ROM,samsung has to depend on supporting our phone and then samsung tweaks it to add their stuff and releases to us.If you would only want to flash AOSP rom on note II then I am sure AOSP/CM developers will support note II for atleast another year easily but with AOSP rom you lose the functionality of many Samsung features like S note and other Samsung related software.

For software features, almost all note 2 can have.
