[Weekend Poll And News Roundup] Has A Nexus Phone Become More Or Less Desirable To You In The Last Year?

In the last year, we've seen a lot of great Android phones - like the Galaxy S III, Note II, One X, RAZR M, or the upcoming Xperia Z. There's little doubt that with every major handset release, we're seeing Android phone manufacturers up their collective 'game.' But way back when (you know, a couple years ago), the fact that Android phones generally weren't always good was a big draw to a Nexus handset for me personally.

[Weekend Poll And News Roundup] Would You Buy An Android Tablet In-Dash Car Mount Kit?

When I saw the handiwork of the two intrepid DIY'ers featured in this post on Nexus 7 car mount projects, I'll admit - I was impressed, if only for their quality execution.

Cars have always been an interest of mine, and the current "infotainment center" paradigm many automakers are pushing onto customers really does suck in a lot of ways. Pay $1500 for a crappy nav system that's hard to use, complicated, and woefully outdated in a couple years' time.

[Weekend Poll And News Roundup] When Are You Planning On Making Your Next Android Phone Purchase?

Buying a smartphone is a lot like telling a joke - timing is everything. Purchasing a Galaxy S III a few months ago was probably fine and dandy, but today, everybody sort of knows we're closing in on the next round of product announcements for 2013.

When do I buy? Which announcement do I wait for? Do I buy as soon as my contract expires, or sit on my upgrade until something new comes along?

[Weekend Poll And CES News Roundup] Which Android Device Came Out On Top At CES?

CES is done and over, and while Android announcements were a little sparse this particular year, we didn't come away empty-handed. Sony unveiled its new flagship phones, NVIDIA dropped a bomb on everyone with Shield, and Huawei even made it to the front pages with its massive 6.1" phablet. Who do you think ended up rising above the noise, though? What Android product are you going to be watching most closely now that it's official?

[The Weekend Poll] Who's Going To Make The Biggest Splash At This Year's CES?

With CES just days away, we're about to head into a dense week of tech product news. New devices across the board - phones, tablets, accessories, TV's, speakers, cameras, and more. A large chunk of those product announcements will probably, at least in some roundabout way, be relevant to Android.

But it's the phones and tablets I think that we're all most excited for, and that will probably make the biggest bang during this year's show overall.

[Weekend Poll And News Roundup] Which New Android Phone Are You Most Looking Forward To In 2013?

Welcome to the Android Police Weekend Poll and News Roundup. For last week's poll and roundup, see What Twitter App Are You Using?

As we near the end of 2012, the rumor mill for 2013 is already churning away. Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal published a report on a Motorola 'X Phone' project being headed up by a former Googler, and I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm dying to see a Google-Moto mashup, especially if the premise is trying new and interesting things.

[Weekend Poll And News Roundup] Do You Put Your Phone In A Case, Skin, Bumper, Or Go Bare?

Welcome to the Android Police Weekend Poll and News Roundup. We're introducing this as a combination of two previously separate features - the weekend poll and the week in review. Just think of it as the weekend poll with the added bonus of some stuff to read at the bottom. A Sunday super-post, if you will.

The Poll

Since the launch of the Nexus 4 and its glass back, there's been even more hullabaloo in the Android world about the need for a smartphone case, bumper, or skin.

[Weekend Poll] What Type Of Browser Are You Using On Your Android Phone?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see What Type Of Keyboard Are You Using On Your Android Phone?

Much like keyboards (which we covered last week), browsers are a dime a dozen. Google ships one browser with Android (in more recent versions, that's been Chrome), which most manufacturers then replace with their own proprietary version. And then there are the dozens (if not hundreds) of third-party browsers available on the Play Store.

[Weekend Poll] What Type Of Keyboard Are You Using On Your Android Phone?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Will/Do You Use The Multi-User Support In Android 4.2?

There's an absolute plethora of keyboard options available for Android devices - in today's poll, phones in particular. You can use the Android (AOSP) keyboard, the stock manufacturer keyboard that ships on your phone, or one of the hundreds of third-party options available in the Play Store. And if you go third-party, there are all different styles, from quirky options like 8Pen, to trace-based keyboards like Swype, and traditional predictive tap-based choices such as SwiftKey.
