[Weekend Poll] Are You Using A Custom ROM On Your Phone?

Surprisingly, we haven't asked this one more than once! Actually, I don't think we've ever asked it exactly like this, and it'll be an interesting one to watch. We did, however, ask you about six months ago whether your device was rooted. A full 63% were in the "yes" camp - let's see how this poll's results compare.

[Weekend Discussion] Leather, Kevlar, Glass, Metal - Do You Really Care What Your Phone Is Made Of?

Exotic or uncommon materials seem to be all the rage in smartphones right now. Motorola started offering wood backs, then later leather, for its Moto X 2013 and 2014 handsets, respectively. But this wasn't even the first time a phone was offered with some integrated exotic or unorthodox materials. When Apple released the iPhone 4 with a glass rear cover, people flipped - wouldn't it break (yes, it would!), or get scratches (not that much) on it?

[Weekend Poll] Will You Buy A Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, Or Neither?

This weekend's poll is a flagship battle bonanza: with both the Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 set to launch in many countries in a mere matter of days, we want to know which one you'll be buying. I know, most of you will be purchasing neither, but we want to hear from those that are, too, to see how the chips land here at Android Police.

[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.
