We talking the new Note4? All the Notes have been pretty good, but the original 3G & 4G, and the new 4 are the best as they support microSD (2&3 didnt).

Make sure it has the "International" ROM, or you wont get Google Play Store by default, and might end up with a phone set to Chinese.

I have had the original 3G for several years, and love it; 90% of a Samsung Note, for 20% of the money.; and the best thing is, no exploding batteries.

I bought mine from their AliExpress store, repairs/warranty are an issue as the turnaround can be quite long. I havent had to send my Xiaomi back, but another Chinese brand phone took 5 months to be replaced.

The specs for the Note 4 can be found on GSMArena, although sometimes they are slightly off. If it has 4G, a X10 core cpu and microsd card support, it is the Note4., which was only released a few months ago.
The only thing it doesnt have is a removable battery.

can't i just buy a screen of ebay for eg and get my phone repaired or is it more complex

It might be the screen - or it might be the video chip on the phone motherboard, without the right computer tools you wont know until you try.
Taking a phone apart isnt easy, and getting it back together without breaking something else is even harder.

Try a search for a video on youtube, there are people how take them apart just for fun - that will give you an idea of how to proceed.
