[Weekend Poll] Fingerprint Scanners: Must-Have Or Meh?

Fingerprint scanners are finally coming into their own - near-instant touch readers are replacing tired, old, swipe scanners, and they're more accurate, much faster, and a hell of a lot easier to operate. But do you actually want one?

There have been precious few phones with touch-style scanners released to date.

[Weekend Poll] Would The Loss Of An SD Card And Removable Battery Make You Less Likely To Buy A Galaxy Note 5?

While far from completely definite, strong rumors abound that the Galaxy Note 5 will not have a removable battery or an SD card slot. Given that the phone is suspected to essentially be a giant Galaxy S6 with a stylus, that makes sense.

What may not make sense is the continued allure of the Note series of devices if this is true, at least among you - people who read Android Police.

[Weekend Poll & Discussion] Are You Satisfied With Your Phone's Battery Life?

This seems like an obvious question, but we're curious regardless: are you happy with your phone's battery life?

Battery life on Android seems to go through a never-ending topsy-turvy ride between "almost good enough" and "outright terrible" depending on the phone, the software, and the underlying version of the OS. There are so many phones running so much different software at many screen resolutions with many chipsets and battery sizes, and those variables are a constant source of debate and issue among Android enthusiasts.

[Weekend Poll & Discussion] How Long Have You Been With Your Current Wireless Carrier? Why Have You Stuck With Them (Or Not)?

Wireless carriers should, in theory, just be dumb pipes you choose from on the basis of coverage and cost, but oftentimes we hear from commenters who have stuck it out with one provider or another in spite of poor service or high rates. We want to know how long you've been with your current wireless carrier continuously - as in, how many months in a row have you had service with this provider?

[Weekend Poll & Discussion] Do You Use Google Drive? For What? Do You Like It?

Google Drive is becoming quite a big product. With Google Photos now being a thing (and deeply integrated with Drive), the subjugation of Docs, Sheets, and Slides under the Drive banner, and continued and increasingly powerful integration with apps and services on Android, the once fairly simple cloud storage locker is now quite a flexible product.

[Weekend Poll & Discussion] Do You Use Google Fit? Do You Like It? Having Problems With The App?

Google Fit is, like most things Google publishes on the Play Store, popular by necessity. The fitness and activity tracking service debuted around the time Android 5.0 did, and people were understandably excited. After all, a built-in fitness and activity tracker app only makes sense on a smartphone full of sensors, and Google is well-renowned for its number-crunching and algorithm-refining prowess.

[Weekend Poll & Discussion] Do You Use Google Hangouts? Are You Excited About Hangouts 4.0?

Google Hangouts 4.0 is coming. With it come status messages, a more modern chat interface, and a refreshed overall layout that now includes a floating action button. Oh, and there's an Android Wear Hangouts app finally.

But Hangouts is probably far from the world's most popular messaging platform, even if it is the descendent of the widely-used Google Talk (which is now a term so dated to me that I actually had to make sure that's what it was called).

[Weekend Poll] How Often Do You Play Games On Your Smartphone?

Smartphone gaming is a hugely popular activity in almost every demographic. People play games on their phones constantly - be it Angry Birds or Clash of Clans, or more serious titles like those wonderful Final Fantasy ports or the many "midcore" shooters and racing games available for phones.

While tablets are obvious gaming platforms, too, today we're interested in gaming on your phone.

As more and more Nexus devices get updated to Android 5.1.1 (and, in the Nexus 9's case, 5.1 in the first place), hopefully more and more issues people had with Android 5.0 and 5.1 are getting resolved. What I want to ask you is about your experience with the latest version of Android.

[Weekend Poll] How Much Mobile Data Do You Use In A Month?

Welcome back to the weekend poll, and this weekend we're asking you about your data habits. Specifically, how much mobile data (as in, 2G/3G/LTE/4G - not Wi-Fi) do you typically use in a month? Given our wide geographic distribution of readers, it'll be interesting to see how this shapes up - I personally know very little about people's data usage outside the US.
