[Weekend Poll] Tracking The Android Invasion: How Many Android Devices Have You Owned?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Are You Using A Custom Launcher?

With over 700,000 Android devices being activated per day and 3.7 million activated over Christmas alone, it should be pretty old news by now that our favorite OS is taking over. And as with most fanboys, loyalty to the Android OS runs deep - many who purchase one Android product fall in love with it, and are likely to purchase more (and Google's syncing capabilities certainly don't hurt!)

So, how many Android devices have you owned? For the purposes of this poll, let's exclude devices that run heavily customized, virtually proprietary builds of Android such as the Kindle(s) and Nook(s).

[Weekend Poll] Are You Using A Custom Launcher?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Do You Use Live Wallpapers?

We've said it many times before, and I'll say it again: one of the best things about Android is how customizable the entire experience is. One of the easiest and most comprehensive ways to customize your device - aside from rooting and ROMing, that is - is to use a custom launcher such as ADWLauncher EX, GO Launcher EX, and Launcher Pro. Even stock, these apps can revamp your device's appearance and basic behavior, and coupled with the bevy of themes that can be found on the Market, the possibilities are nearly endless.

[Weekend Poll] Do You Use Live Wallpapers?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Do You Use An Antivirus App On Your Android Device?

That Android supports live wallpapers (LWPs) is a cool feature, no doubt about it. But to many people, it's no more than an impractical novelty - something that looks cool but kills performance and battery life. Still, they remain popular on the Market, presumably among more casual owners who don't notice (or care) about the performance hit, or just don't know better... or perhaps even hardcore users don't mind the trade-off.

So, which camp do you fall in?

While it was by the narrowest of margins that Shadowgun won a plurality of the votes (32% - see below), it's not hard to see why - truly amazing graphics, great over the shoulder gameplay, and console-level polish made it clear from the day we first saw screenshots of this game that it was going to do big things.

Some Users Experiencing Voice/Data Connectivity Dropouts With The Verizon Galaxy Nexus - Are You One Of Them? [Poll]

After a rollercoaster of emotions and months of waiting, the back-from-mythical Galaxy Nexus was finally released on Verizon yesterday, but were the main reasons for the delays, in fact, related to unstable and poor connectivity? I've had endless problems with connectivity on the Thunderbolt (even with the latest firmware), and plenty of you had similar issues with pretty much all other LTE devices.

Can the Galaxy Nexus be no different? I assumed loss of data (even 3G, I'm not even talking about 4G here) and voice was a thing of the past with the Nexus, but having run into this Reddit post with multiple confirmations, I decided to do a quick poll using our social media accounts.

Inspired by the (sort of) pending release of the Galaxy Nexus (and the hilarious VZSucks coupon being offered for one at Negri Electronics), I'm curious: would you ever switch carriers for a phone? Have you before? Or does the phone come second to the network? Sound off in the poll below, and head down to the comments to speak your mind.

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see What Is Your Ideal Tablet Screen Size?

In light of the slew of Asus Transformer Prime (the first tablet to pack NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 CPU) reviews and the pending release of said device, we are curious to know: would you still buy a dual-core tablet? Perhaps you would, but only for a secondary/budget tablet? Or only if it were smaller? Sound off in the poll below, and head down to the comments to share your thoughts.
