Weekend poll: What kind of headphones do you use with your smartphone?

The fight for the headphone jack seems to be a losing battle, much to my own cable-loving chagrin. With the simultaneous popularity of Bluetooth headphone deals and a growing tolerance for jack-less phones, I thought it would be a good time to revisit the question: What kind of headphones are you using for your phone?

Weekend poll: Do you still use Google Hangouts?

Google's Hangouts messaging platform has been a hot subject these last couple of days. Initially, a recent report pegged Google to give Hangouts the ax in 2020, but a director involved with the project at Google claims no such date was set, and that a migration is planned to transition Hangouts (as consumers know it, anyway) into Meet/Chat. Whatever ends up actually happening, at a minimum, it sounds like Hangouts will change in the future. With that in mind, we're curious: How many of our readers are still using Google Hangouts?

Weekend poll: How often do you use Google Assistant?

Two products seem to be especially popular among our readers in this recent deal season: smart speakers and smart displays. With a Pixel-heavy fanbase that's heavily invested into Google's ecosystem, I'm not surprised that Assistant-powered hardware is a common choice for many of you. So I'm curious: Regardless of whether you have a condo filled to the brim with Google Homes and smart displays, or a home entirely empty of them (save the Assistant on your phone), how often do you use the Assistant?

Weekend poll: Are you after any specific deals this upcoming Black Friday?

It's that time of the year, and we're gearing up for it here at Android Police. No, I'm not just talking about Thanksgiving, but the avalanche of discounts and sales associated with the post-Thanksgiving "Black Friday" commercial holiday. For many deals, you don't even have to wait, as plenty of retailers have been pushing out promotions early, and we've been covering them. That's not even mentioning our coming, monolithic, ongoing Black Friday 2018 roundup. So, is there anything specific you plan on picking up this Black Friday/Cyber Monday/coming week?

Weekend poll: Do you have touch sounds on or off?

We all have our own process when setting up a new phone for the first time. Sometimes that's as simple as restoring a backup and tweaking whatever we need to fit the new device, other times we might want to try something new just to see what it's like. Whatever the case, most phones out there seem to come with touch sounds — a feature which makes a noise when you touch your screen — enabled.

We're curious, do you have them turned on or off?

Weekend poll: Did you buy a OnePlus 6T?

OnePlus' latest flagship, the 6T, was formally revealed one week ago. The phone had some big shoes to fill, given the generally positive opinion of the OnePlus 6, and it delivered. Based on what you've seen so far, have you taken the plunge? Did you pick up a 6T?

Weekend poll: Which October phone announcement got you most excited?

In tech blogging circles, this past month has been something of a phoneocalypse. Between Google's Pixel 3, Huawei's Mate 20 variants, the LG V40 ThinQ, and the anticipated, but as yet unreleased, OnePlus 6T (among a longer list of devices), a large number of popular names have decided to push a new phone out this October. With every OEM competing for your attention in such a narrow window, which of this month's phones had/has you the most excited?

Weekend poll: Do you use the Pixel 2 and 3's 'Active Edge' feature?

In light of all the Pixel-related news in the last week, there's a question we've meant to ask our readers, as we're a bit divided on the subject ourselves. Starting with the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, Google introduced a feature it called Active Edge which allowed you to squeeze the sides of the phone to invoke the Assistant. It's a feature which has continued with the latest Pixel 3 and 3 XL, but we're curious how many of our readers actually appreciate and use the extra functionality.

Weekend poll: Did you pre-order one of Google's new Pixel 3s?

This was The Big Week here at Android Police. Google finally revealed the much-leaked Pixel 3. Historically, the Pixels have been some of the most popular devices among our readers. Even though criticism of this year's phones seems a bit stronger, it's easy for a vocal minority to drown out the silent majority. So now it's time to ask the question: Did you pre-order one of Google's new Pixels?

Weekend poll: Will you be watching Google's Pixel event this week?

Google's October event, where the company is expected to formally reveal the much-leaked Pixel 3 phones (among other hardware), is a mere two days away. The joke this year is that Google won't have anything to actually say, given the volume of leaks for this year's hardware. But there could still be a few surprises in store. That said, will you be watching this Tuesday's upcoming Made by Google event?
