Weekend poll: Are you buying one of Apple's new iPhones?

Following the avalanche of leaks, we're all pretty excited for Google's upcoming Pixel 4. But, although the Pixel 4 may have been the biggest news here at Android Police, Apple's new iPhone 11s have been dominating the headlines otherwise. Now that we've seen the Pixel 4, and with a good chunk of our audience reading these very words from an iPhone, we're curious to know how many of you might have pre-ordered one of Apple's new phones.

Weekend poll: Have you updated to Android 10? What do you think?

Google has finally released Android 10 after six months of beta testing. As usual, Pixels have picked up this latest version, and the Essential Phone has continued its habit of timely updates. The last wave of OnePlus flagships also picked up Android 10, but only via the Open Betas. At the time of writing, Android 10 is still something of an exclusive club — have you updated to it? How do you like it?

Weekend poll: When was the last time your phone's battery died?

We take battery life for granted these days. Not that long ago, being able to pull four or five hours of so-called "screen-on time" was a fantasy, but now it's a milestone almost every flagship phone can reach. At the end of the day, most of us probably plug in a phone that isn't anywhere near dead. With so much longevity becoming a standard and expected feature, when was the last time your phone's battery actually died?

Weekend poll: Do you own any Nest products?

Google's Nest branch has been in the news quite a lot in the past week. We heard about the rumored Nest Mini, and the migration of Nest accounts to Google has started — which triggers a loss of IFTTT support, among other confusing design behavior. With Nest on our minds and Nest products in so many of our homes, I'm curious how many of our readers use Nest gadgets.

Weekend poll: Would you pay $5/month for a library of paid Android games and other apps?

Late last month, Google was spotted testing a new subscription service called "Google Play Pass." In a similar vein to Apple Arcade, Google Play Pass promises access to a library of games and apps for a flat $5 monthly fee. The subscription service is in limited testing right now, but we're curious to know if you'd sign up when (or if) it expands.

Weekend poll: Are you getting a Samsung Galaxy Note10?

Samsung's latest Galaxy Note10 was released just earlier this week, and this year the Note is a whole series of devices in two different sizes, with a 5G variant. The company's vision for the Note series has definitely changed, and it remains to be seen if public opinion has changed with it. But as the latest major Android phone to land, and with pre-orders formally open, we have to ask: Are you going to buy a Note10?

Weekend poll: Do you use Android Auto?

Earlier this week, Google pushed out a big new update for Android Auto, marking the first really substantial change since the in-dash software platform landed in cars all the way back in 2015. Between the standalone app and the fact that most car makers now support Android Auto in their high-end infotainment systems, odds are that many of you have at least tried it out over the last few years. Do you use Android Auto now?

Weekend poll: How many smart speakers do you have?

Late last year, it was estimated that around a quarter of all US households had at least one smart speaker. Android Police readers were a bit ahead of the curve back in 2017, when almost half of you claimed to have one or more Google Home, and the Assistant is by far the most popular voice assistant among our audience. But today in 2019, with Prime Day's recent sales potentially making a difference, just how many smart speakers do you have?

Weekend poll: What do you think of the Pixel 4's design?

Now that we've seen renders of both the front and back of the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL (not to mention the previous renders and leaks), you've probably already come to some sort of judgment about the design. From the bigger square camera bump to the vertically asymmetrical bezels, there's a lot to like (or dislike) depending on your tastes. How do you feel?

Weekend poll: What's your favorite navigation system? Gestures, buttons, or something else?

One of the biggest features introduced in Android Q was the new "fully gestural navigation" system, which replaces the old buttons with an entirely gesture-based method of navigating around apps, returning to the home screen, and multitasking. This builds on the previous two-button "gesture" system introduced in Android 9 Pie, which itself replaced the nearly timeless three-button navigation. Many phones these days have several options when it comes to navigation — some OEMs have even made their own gesture systems. Assuming you have more than one option, which do you prefer?
