Weekend poll: Are you interested in buying a first-generation 5G phone?

Mobile World Congress is just around the corner, and with it will come a slew of new smartphone launches. Among those new phones will be the world's very first 5G handsets (and phones with 5G enabled via big plastic bricks slapped on the back), and we know a few things about them. Namely: they're going to be expensive, and for a good long while you might struggle to even find a place to utilize any of that 5G capability. Oh, and they're also probably going to be covered in super tacky branding.

That all said, the phones will come, and we know Samsung, LG, OnePlus, and Motorola are all on-board.

Weekend poll: How fast is your mobile data?

With 2019 gearing up to be the year of 5G — or at least the start of it — I'm a little curious about the current state of 4G data as it applies to all of our readers. Much to my frustration, my home internet connection is randomly cutting out today, so this poll actually comes courtesy of my tethered phone and T-Mobile's LTE. Right now I'm really glad the connection it provides is fast enough for work; 45 Mbps down might not compare to my gigabit home speeds, but it's fine in a pinch. But between the promises of a new G's worth of data and my own predicament, I'm curious to know how fast your phone's mobile data connection is.

Weekend poll: Do you make video calls from your phone?

Our weekend polls are typically freestanding, but based on the response from our last one, we thought a related follow-up question was in order. You made your interests when it comes to the ideal front-facing camera position known, but we're curious about how you use that camera. Specifically: Do you use your phone for video calling?

Weekend poll: Where do you prefer to have your front-facing camera?

In the last few years, bezels have gone from a generally ignored necessity to one of industrial design's contemporary sins. That extra chonk housed, among other things, a phone's front-facing camera. But now we have notches, sliding designs, the "hole-punch" cutout, and even phones that eschew front-facing cameras entirely. So I'm curious to hear which style of camera placement you prefer.

Weekend poll: Which do you use more, Google Maps or Waze?

In the last week, Google Maps has been rolling out some welcome navigational improvements. We've got support for speed limits and speed traps, now, both of which sound pretty familiar. As this Waze-ification of Maps continues, we realize we've never actually asked our readers: Which of the two apps do you use more?

We walked away from Vegas with a pile of our favorite upcoming gadgets, but opinions don't end there; these products succeed or fail based on your interest.

Weekend poll: Are you happy with your phone's battery life?

People look at a lot of different features when purchasing a phone, and everyone seems to appreciate "good" battery life. You've already told us what scale of numbers qualifiesfor that particular label, but I'm curious to know if your current phone, whatever it may be, delivers when it comes to longevity.

Weekend poll: Pick our Android Police Readers' Choice phone of the year

Some of you may remember as far back as three weeks ago when we announced selecting the OnePlus 6T as our phone of the year. This was after a long and bitter struggle following an internal nomination and selection process. But although the OnePlus 6T topped our own list this year, we're curious to see what you, our collective readers, consider the best phone of the year.

Weekend poll: Do you buy phones as gifts?

It's that gift-giving time of year. As 2018 approaches its end, you've probably either stocked up on or already given away presents to friends, loved ones, and colleagues. So we're curious: When it comes to gift-giving, do you ever buy phones as presents?

Weekend poll: How often do you use Google's Discover feed?

Discover, a rebranding for the familiar content list formerly known as "Feed," seems to be rolling out to a wider audience this week. The rename-associated redesign landed all the way back in October shortly after the announcement, updated dark theme and all. With more people experiencing it, I'm curious to know how many of you make Discover/Feed a regular part of your day.
