Phone closest to Samsung galaxy Note 2

by salilsurendran / September 24, 2014 7:54 AM PDT

I had a Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 2 that had recently developed bootlooping problems and I used USPS to send out to a store. The store called me today and told me that they had received the package but there was no phone inside. I am ready to give up and buy another phone. I liked the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and don't want to pay for any of the latest models. Unfortunately Verizon has discontinued Note 2 and I was wondering as to which phone would come closest to the Note 2 in specs. Most important for me is the 5.5" display. My phone was unlocked and I am not in contract with Verizon so if I find a phone that matches the Note 2 specs I might even switch carriers. Any carriers have good 4G data speeds in the bay area. I live in San Jose, CA. I am mostly a data user using 2 GB and very little voice or text. I am wondering about services like Republic Wireless and consumercellular?

I've been looking for budget phablets as well and the only thing I can find worth mentioning is the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 although I'm more than open to other options as well.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
