Replacement for old Samsung Galaxy Note - help needed!

Hi guys

I've had my Samsung Galaxy Note for several years now and been pleased with it but I'm now looking to update to a 4G phone and would be really grateful for some advice.

I would like to keep with EE if possible, phone needs to be 5 inches or larger and running Android. I would use it for texts, calls, internet, photos, games etc.

I am currently paying about £23 per month on a contract and would like to keep to a similar price. Ideally there would be no handset charge.

Any suggestions etc would be very welcome!

Thanks all.

    Using the "Cheap Mobiles Tool" here on MSE I came across the Samsung Galaxy S5.

    No upfront cost, 1000 Minutes, Unlimited Texts and 2GB of 'Double Speed' 4G EE data.

    Plan costs £24.99/month (before EE increase the line rental based on RPI in March 2016).
    It's not your credit score that counts, it's your credit history. Any replies are my own personal opinion and not a representation of my employer.

    You can get the newer Galaxy S6 for £25 on the mobiledirect site.

    I tried to get Voda to match it as the MD price is on their network but they wouldnt drop it below £28 with one month free so equivalent to £26.83 a month for 1000 minutes unl txt and 1Gb data.

    How about vodafone smart ultra 6 (£125 I think), unlocked with sim only

    I reckon you'd save about £10 a month, so would be about £100 better off after the 2 years, after paying for phome
