[Weekend Poll] When's The Last Time You Bought A Paid App Or Game On The Play Store?

This weekend's poll is about your money - and how you spend it. Specifically, on the Play Store. Now, when I ask if you've bought an app or game on the Play Store, I mean an app or game, not music, movies, books, or TV shows - nor any kind of subscription.

[Weekend Poll] Have The Loss Of A Removable Battery And SD Card Made The Galaxy S6 Worse Or Better?

So, as many of us in the tinkering mindset will likely agree, flexibility in any product is generally a good thing. Case in point: many Android smartphones over the years have shipped with removable batteries and microSD card slots. Battery runs down in half a day after a year? Swap it.

[Weekend Poll] Battery Life Versus Thinness, FIGHT!

Almost four years ago, we ran a poll on the subject of battery life versus thinness. Four years ago, Android's battery life was even worse than it is now, batteries were smaller, and LTE radios could be a death sentence on newer handsets. Today... battery life still isn't that good on most phones, but it's not as bad as it once was, and all the while the phones are getting thinner and lighter and sleeker.

[Weekend Poll] What Brand Is Your Current Smartphone?

I can't believe we've never run this poll, but apparently we haven't, and it's such a simple one: what brand is your current smartphone?

Note: for the purpose of this poll, Nexus phones should be voted as their actual OEM (there is no 'Google' option). I'm not including any non-Android OEMs, so for any of you Nokia or Apple users, vote "other." Because, you know, this is an Android blog.

[Weekend Poll] Have You Ever Pledged Money To A Technology Crowdfunding Campaign?

This weekend's question isn't explicitly about Android or even smartphones, but it is something highly relevant to most of us who follow technology: crowdfunding! Now, whatever your feelings on crowdfunding may be (I'm not a fan!), perhaps you've ventured a little cash on one at some point or another.

[Weekend Poll] How Much Internal Storage Do You Have Left On Your Smartphone?

This weekend's poll is inspired by a poll we did last year, and namely, the top comment on that poll: how much remaining storage is available on your smartphone right now? This is actually a pretty interesting question, because it speaks directly to the issue of just how much storage the average person will use on their phone regardless of its capacity.

[Weekend Poll] Do You Pay For A Music Streaming Service? Which One?

I asked you back in 2013 which streaming music service you paid for - if any - and now a little over a year later, I think it's time for an update. Last time we held this poll, a full 50% of respondents indicated they paid for Google Play Music All Access (at least, it was the paid service they used most), with a sharp drop-off for Spotify, in second place at 14%.

[Weekend Poll] Smartwatches: Round Or Square/Rectangular Display?

This weekend's poll asks a simple question, but it's an interesting one nonetheless, I think: do you prefer your smartwatch round or square?

The Moto 360 and G Watch R remain the only announced Wear devices with round displays. And, despite their coolness, circles have their downsides - they're unabashedly less efficient when displaying text, especially in a computing world that has been designed around quadrilaterals since the earliest monitors; there are so many interfaces that simply aren't optimized for a circle.

[Weekend Poll] How Much Do You Expect To Pay For Your Next Smartphone?

The cost of smartphones on average, it's no secret, has generally been tumbling around the world in the last couple of years. With many OEMs scrambling to cram specification sheets at lower and lower prices, competition in the low end of the smartphone segment is hotter than ever.

This isn't always how it was, though - nor how it necessarily is in every country.
