Weekend poll: Did you pre-order a Pixel 5?

Weekend poll: Did you pre-order a Pixel 5?

Google officially announced the Pixel 5 just last week. The phone leaked so much, we knew basically everything about it before it was revealed, excluding a few curious tidbits like how wireless charging would work. Pricing was also a little nebulous, but it turned out it varies depending on the market, with not all areas getting the more expensive mmWave 5G version of the phone — and sadly, the US is stuck with the $699 model.

I'm sure you've had time to mull it over, and Pixels are among the most popular phones among the Android Police readership. So did you pre-order a Pixel 5?

Weekend poll: Will you tune in to Google's Pixel 5 event this week?

Weekend poll: Will you tune in to Google's Pixel 5 event this week?

It's just about Pixel season, and Google's hotly-anticipated Launch Night In event is almost upon us. This upcoming Wednesday at 11AM PT (2PM ET), the company plans to tell us all about its upcoming products, expected to include the Chromecast with Google TV, the Nest Audio, and the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5. So, will you be tuning in?

Weekend poll: What software keyboard do you use?

Weekend poll: What software keyboard do you use?

Perhaps one of the most tribal divisions in the Android world, surpassing even the skinned vs. stock debate and brand fandom, is the software keyboard. You might switch between manufacturers, or even root and ROM your phone, but the choice of which keyboard to use seems to cross all other boundaries. Once you've settled on one and adopted its peculiarities as your own (usually through a frustrating period of acclimation), that one is yours, and you'll defend it to the death. So which keyboard do you champion?

Weekend poll: What price do you consider a 'budget' phone?

Weekend poll: What price do you consider a 'budget' phone?

We tend to throw around a lot of names when talking about the pricing categories for phones, and the market has changed a lot in the last five years. Back then, a thousand-dollar smartphone would have been obscene, and here we are in 2020 talking about phones that cost twice that. With prices for flagships trending upwards, I'm wondering if that's also changed what our readers consider a "budget" phone.

Weekend poll: What kind of rear cameras do you want in a phone?

Weekend poll: What kind of rear cameras do you want in a phone?

Back in the day, most phones had only one or two rear cameras — "the day," of course, being just a few years ago and almost a millennium in smartphone terms. But the number has positively exploded over recent years with flagship devices getting telephoto, wide-angle, macro, and dedicated "portrait mode" cameras. With so many different and varied cameras available in phones now, which ones do you actually care about or want?

Weekend poll: Do you like the new Google Meet tab in Gmail?

Weekend poll: Do you like the new Google Meet tab in Gmail?

Over the summer, Google debuted a new "feature" for Gmail that integrated Meet into a dedicated tab in the app, rolling out with wide availability earlier this month. The change takes up around 10-20% of the vertical space in the Gmail app to give you what amounts to a dedicated shortcut to the company's videoconferencing service. It's part of an overall plan to foist Meet on us whether we want it or not, and I'm curious to hear if you actually appreciate the change or not.

Weekend Poll: Will your next phone be a foldable?

Weekend Poll: Will your next phone be a foldable?

Microsoft's Surface Duo was finally revealed after almost a year of teasing just earlier this week, and our readers seem pretty polarized about it — and the whole category of folding phones in general. To be fair, there are a lot of disadvantages, like sky-high price tags and durability concerns. In my mind, we've reached the second generation of foldables, and some of those issues are starting to be resolved (outside price, anyway). With the development made so far, I'm curious to know if you'd consider a foldable for your next phone.

Weekend poll: Did you pre-order a Pixel 4a, Note20, or Note20 Ultra?

Weekend poll: Did you pre-order a Pixel 4a, Note20, or Note20 Ultra?

This last week was pretty busy for smartphones. We got two major announcements almost back-to-back with Google's Pixel 4a and Samsung's new Note20 series. It's quite a spread, from midrange to literal "Ultra" flagship. While you can't zip down to the store and get one today, we're curious of any of our readers have pre-ordered either.

Weekend poll: Are you a 'Pixel Superfan?'

Weekend poll: Are you a 'Pixel Superfan?'

Earlier this week, Google sent out emails to some folks that had previously purchased the company's Pixel hardware products, inviting its fans to take a survey to join the "Pixel Superfans Program." Google admits that it has only reached out to "a small group of Pixel owners," but we're curious if that included you — and if not, if you consider yourself a "Pixel Superfan" anyway.

Weekend poll: Does your phone get VoLTE service on your carrier?

Weekend poll: Does your phone get VoLTE service on your carrier?

This week we learned that both AT&T and T-Mobile plan to make VoLTE a hard requirement for their networks in the next couple years. Folks using older phones that don't support the technology will be left behind if they don't upgrade. Most recent phones do support VoLTE, though some enthusiasts running custom ROMs or using imported devices might be in trouble. We're curious how many of our readers might be affected by this change, so: Does your phone support VoLTE (HD Voice) on your carrier?
