[Weekend Poll] Pick A Phablet Edition: HTC DLX, Samsung Galaxy Note II, Or LG Optimus Vu II?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Are You Content With Your Phone's Stock Battery Life?

Complain as some people might, smartphones are getting bigger and bigger. Nothing exemplifies that fact more than phablets like the HTC DLX (or other variants, such as the J Butterfly), Samsung Galaxy Note II, and LG Optimus Vu II. Packing 5"+ displays, powerful CPUs, and 2GB of RAM, these phones aren't for your grandmother.

[Weekend Poll] Are You Content With Your Phone's Stock Battery Life?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see If The Major Manufacturers All Made Similar Nexus Phones, Whose Would You Buy?

LG was hard at work this week pimping the new Lithium Polymer battery technology used in the Optimus G. Promising higher battery density in a smaller, lighter package, word's still out on how much of an improvement it is in the real world. Obviously, though, any advances in battery tech are welcome - more battery life is never a bad thing.

[Weekend Poll] If The Major Manufacturers All Made Similar Nexus Phones, Whose Would You Buy?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see How Much Total Storage Do You Need In A Phone?

Let's say that the rumors (and evidence?)of a Nexus program are true, and Motorola, Samsung, LG, and HTC are all making Nexus phones for release before the end of the year. For the sake of our poll, let's just pretend that they are all powered by the same CPU, GPU, and RAM, and had roughly the same screen size and resolution.

[Weekend Poll] How Much Total Storage Do You Need In A Phone?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see What Was Your First Version Of Android?

These days, it seems like the push is towards storing most content on the cloud, rather than on-device. We can stream all of our music and movies from the web and our photos are seamlessly backed up as well. In fact, it seems like aside from games, only a small portion of our content needs to be stored locally.

[Weekend Poll] What Was Your First Version Of Android?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Will You Be Buying A New Kindle?

Earlier this week, Ron gave us an interesting look at what codenames came before Android 1.5, Cupcake (spoiler: 1.1 was "petit four," and 1.0 didn't have any codename at all). It's hard not to read the post without taking a nostalgic walk down memory lane, isn't it? I still remember heading into my local T-Mobile store to play with the G1 when it launched.

[Weekend Poll] Will You Be Buying A New Kindle?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Do You Stream Your Music Library On Android, Or Store It Locally?

On September 6, Amazon announced three new Kindles: a 6" non-Android model called the Paperwhite (with or without 3G), the 7" Kindle Fire HD (16 and 32GB), and an 8.9" Kindle Fire HD (16 or 32GB), while updating the hardware and dropping the price of the original Fire to $160.

[Weekend Poll] Do You Stream Your Music Library On Android, Or Store It Locally?

This is the latest in our Weekend Polls series. For last week's, see Would You Give Up A Front-Facing Camera To Have A Bezel-Less Phone?

If you want to listen to your own music on your Android device, there are two ways to do it: first, store it locally, or second, stream it from a cloud-based service like Google Music or Amazon MP3. Obviously playing back locally would be faster (no buffering), reliable (you don't have to worry about reception), not use up valuable bandwidth, and allow you to use whatever music player you want.

[Weekend Poll] Would You Give Up A Front-Facing Camera To Have A Bezel-Less Phone?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see What Effect Do You Think The Samsung v Apple Case Will Have On The Industry?

Rumor has it that Motorola will release a phone without a bezel by the end of the year, and we kinda-sorta buy it. The trend has certainly been moving that direction and bezels are becoming increasingly narrow, but we've never had a phone that truly had an edge-to-edge screen with no bezel at all.

[Weekend Poll] What Effect Do You Think The Samsung v Apple Case Will Have On The Industry?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Is Your Primary Android Device Rooted?

In the (annoyingly) highly-publicized case between Apple and Samsung, it took the jury just a few short days to come to the conclusion that Samsung had infringed on many of Apple's patents. The trial is certainly far from over (and there are doubts about how much attention the jury paid to detail, given that they answered 700 questions in 3 days).

[Weekend Poll] Is Your Primary Android Device Rooted?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see On Average, How Many Apps Do You Purchase Per Month?

Look around the web and it seems like whenever anyone has a "how can I make my <Android device> do ______," the answer is invariably "root it." And to anyone involved in the Android community, you get the impression that most Android users are rooted. Unfortunately, what people tend to forget is that while a few million Android users may be rooted, there are hundreds of millions of active Android devices out there - meaning rooted users represent a small minority of owners.
