I'm contemplating to get Galaxy Note 1 :

a) is it fast enough if I want to view movies (say Youtube
    & mp4 movies stored in the SD card) ?

b) can it run the same version of Android as Note 2 ?

c) is battery life (& number of hours of talktime) of Note 1
    as good as Note 2 ?

d) is Note 1's screen sensitivity as good as Note 2?

e) is audio quality equally good?

f) can Note 1 sync to Outlook (for saving Contacts, Calendar,
   Reminder) & possibly saving the SMS & whatsapp messages?

I know Note 1 is duo core while Note 2 is quad core but
I would rather wait till a 64-bit Note is available as Note 3
is also 32-bit only.
