    I'm just curious on what the average age of a Galaxy Note 2 user is? Is it more attractive to the younger audience or the older one? Please take a moment and select your age group from the listed Poll.

    Thanks for your time.

    I don't have it yet, but I've already decided to get it as soon as Verizon stocks it.

    Don't have it yet either but waiting for AT&T to stock it. The wait is KILLING me! Soon to be ex iPhone 4 user here. I wanted something better and figured I'd give the Note 2 a shot. From the reviews, looks like I'm making a good choice :D

    Somehow it seems as if iPhone4 to Note2 is the most common upgrade route. I'm in the same boat too. For the last 6 months I've been waiting to get iPhone5 but when I saw how it was I decided to switch.

    gamers... younger in nature

    but the older crowd with eye sight failing.. might be interested in the bigger screen.
    I am considering the NOTE2 .. 1 reason is for easier of reading.

    Yeah. Seems that iPhone may have lost some appeal amongst some users by not getting with the times, so to speak. Like many, I was looking forward to the iPhone 5. What I got was an iPhone 4S XL instead. Wasn't too thrilled with the changes (or lack thereof) so the Note 2 really caught my eye. After seeing the Engadget review of the Note 2, that pretty much sold me.

    It's great to see some folks who are older than me (30) being so into tech stuff. Most of the people I know other than my Dad are just completely technology illiterate.

    Just curious, for those moving over from the iphone, what were you hoping for in the iphone 5, that didn't quite hit the mark?

    For me it was, essentially, a bigger screen. Apple seems to be touting their iOS more then anything nowadays and with the issues with their MS Exchange, Maps and various other oddities, doesn't seem like they're as diligent in QA as they used to be. Other companies have released 4" screens already and, just now, Apple figured out a way to make a 4" screen phone simply by making it longer? :thinking: I dunno, iOS/iPhone seems to be at a stalemate in terms of design/functionality for me so it was time for a change.

    Overall, the iPhone 5 is pretty much the same as the iPhone 4/4S only longer. Since this was supposed to be a major upgrade cycle, I was expecting some out of this world, cutting edge design with faster specs and all the bells and whistles. Instead, the put out a similar looking phone that was slightly longer/lighter/thinner. Seemed like after months of R&D/Design, the best they could come up with was "just make it longer".

    The customizeability (we'll assume this is a word) of the Android OS was another appeal to me as well. The widgets are a nice addition as well. iOS looks the same now as it did 3/4/5 years ago. I would think Apple would make some UI changes or different layouts or something, anything during that time but, no, they didn't.

    Granted, not everyone wants a larger screen but, then again, a lot of people DO want a larger screen. Apple being Apple seems to only care about those people that agree with them rather then listening to their customer base. I had gotten tired/bored of my iPhone 4 for quite some time now and after watching the keynote for the iPhone 5, I was bummed that there wasn't that much going on with the new iPhone.

    I'm big on phone specs as well as how it works with whatever OS its running and while the iPhone 4 worked well in both regards, it was lacking in the specs department. I'd like to have a phone with a good/great camera, NFC, beefy processor/lots of RAM, SD slot, certain degree of customization, etc. iPhone 5 didn't have a lot of that. The Note 2, does.

    Overall, I just wanted to new toy to play with. I'm still big on the iPad/MacBook Pro as Apple seems to be moving along okay with both of those product lines. The iPhone, on the other hand, seems to be stalled and in need of something really good to change its pace. I've never been a fanboy of either Apple/Droid so I'll pick whatever works for me. This time around, the iPhone 5 was lacking in all the things I wanted so I had to pass.

    Oh, and the new connector they have employed now was almost like a slap in the face. It's an interesting technology and it had to be done in order to shave down some space for all the new goodies but it's like I have to buy all new cables/connectors/adapters now that this Lightning cable is introduced? Really. Only a handful of companies have JUST starting putting out stuff for Apple's Thunderbolt cable and now people will have to wait for new Lightning cable-ready accessories too.

    That was a really thorough explanation. I was just curious due to many of my friends being iPhone fanatics. I'm not a big fan of apple products, but admit that they still come out with great quality. And I can never hate on Apple's brilliant ability to market their products as "innovative," even though a lot of their tech was merely "re-hashed/refined" tech.

    Just to get back on topic, I'm also wondering what general demographic encompass iPhone converts.

    For me it is mainly the size, a 4" screen is just not enough after playing with the GS3. I've had an iPhone ever since it first came out and Apple has not really done much to make it fresh and exciting, so i'm board with it now. Plus, the Note 2 with its' 5.5" screen will double up nicely as my car's head unit.

    I'd think it's an older crowd device: $ for young kids, large screen for older people with declining vision. Just a guess.

    Very good point, which is likely the reason for Generation X'ers, like myself, to be the highest on this poll.

    That said, I'm pleasantly surprised to see some Baby Boomers embracing smartphones. Well, "surprised" is probably the wrong term to use because Baby Boomers were also said to be the fastest growing generation of smartphone adopters.

    Humm, younger people like gaming so this would be great for young, high tech for middle age people who can afford, great for old people...
    I see the phone more of a sexually diverse phone. It's size squarely puts it in the man phone range than woman phone. I bet the percentage of women owner's will be pretty darn small.

    for me, as a teacher and student, this phone is perfect for taking notes, doing other productive stuff that i would do on my netbook.

    Funny to see this poll.
    What could be interesting too, is how it would look if you split it up by profession.
    Think there would be majority in some specific areas?

    Also from which phone people are comming from would be interesting; why change to the Note 2? What is the most important specs it has compared to others?

    For me age doesn't say that much. It depends on your background, economics, profession etc.
