If you don't need the latest Nexus goodies in terms of software, Note 4 has pretty much similar specs. Over here, Note prices used to plummet soon after release. On the release date, Note 3 was around $930 in Poland (converted to USD at that day's exchange rate), and I got mine for around $570 in December, which was pretty soon after the release (brand new, unpacked, invoice etc). It may be similar case with Note 4. I'm not going to replace 3 for 4, as it's just too good, but if one's looking for a good big phone, Note 4 is definitely one of the best options if you don't need Nexus branding. Also, LG G3 may be an interesting "budget" alternative.
