That's right. But truth is, developers on XDA are not the giving up type. I've a Note 2 with SlimBean (android 4.3.1) running perfectly smooth with zero bugs since I used their first builds. 6+ hours screentime, 21k in antutu without any overclocking, no glitches, all working (1080p HD filming, camera, BT, tethering, wifi, etc etc.)
Go for the Note 2. Best device I ever had and the development community is very vivid with ****loads of well maintained roms, including official cm 10.2 nightlies. There's also the samsung official touchwiz android 4.3 leak available, so seems this device isn't written off yet by Samsung, and I suppose this can only benefit the dev community even more.
