Weekend poll: Has the YouTube TV price bump pushed you to unsubscribe?

Earlier this year, YouTube TV finally hit every US market, making the online TV service much more widely accessible compared to the previous market-by-market rollout. Sadly, a substantial 20% price bump followed this development, and unlike last time, old subscribers won't be grandfathered in. More of our readers than I expected seemed upset at the news, so I'm curious to know if you have decided to unsubscribe.

Weekend poll: How often do you use contactless payments?

Most of us probably have money on the mind, given tax day is just around the corner. As we're all going through records and transaction lists for the last year, I'm curious about how you choose to make payments. NFC's effectively universal availability gives people in 27 countries access to Google Pay, and Samsung phones have that sweet MST — just two names among a longer list of options. So, how often do you use contactless payments?

Weekend poll: Have you switched away from Inbox yet?

In just a couple of days, Google is set to finally, sadly kill Inbox. The much-loved email client for Gmail may not have supplanted the original's popularity, but its unique feature set paired with a minimal and pleasing interface earned it plenty of fans, with many of them claiming they would hang on until the cold and bitter end. Are you one of them?

Weekend poll: How much would you pay for Stadia?

Earlier this week, Google formally revealed its upcoming game streaming plans during its GDC Keynote. Stadia, as the new platform is to be called, will be the continuation of efforts that began with Project Stream, giving future consumers access to the latest games at the highest settings, streamed over the internet into their homes. However, many important details when it comes to Stadia, such as the final pricing model, are still unknown. So I'm curious, how much would you be willing to pay for it?

Weekend poll: If you have a Pixel, have you tried Android Q?

The Android Q Beta 1 became available for Google's Pixel devices (including the 2016 Pixel) last Wednesday. As I hope most of our readers would be aware, this advance look at the upcoming release isn't quite ready for prime time, but I'm curious to know how many of our readers decided to take the plunge. If you've got a compatible device, have you flashed Android Q?

Weekend poll: Which Galaxy S10 model did you snag if you picked one up?

Based on what we can see in our comments section, quite a lot of our readers have decided to pick up a Galaxy S10 — especially after the praise David heaped on it in our review. The numbers seem to have swayed since our general "are you getting an S10" poll two weeks ago, so let's refine that question a bit. If you bought an S10, which version did you go for?

Weekend poll: What do you think about folding phones?

There were a lot of individual phone announcements at MWC this year, but by far the most popular concept at the event was The Folding Phone. Almost every OEM has either revealed or is working on its own entry into the new form factor. All that's left for success is consumer interest, and hence this week's poll.

Weekend poll: Are you getting one of the new Samsung Galaxy S10 models?

Just a few days ago, Samsung finally revealed its new suite of Galaxy S10 phones, doubling the number of models in the lineup since last year even as it launched a new "hole-punch" display design. From the 5G to the 10e, you've got a lot more options this time around — and higher prices to go with them. Pre-orders have already opened for most models, so I'm curious to hear if you've decided to pick one up yet.

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.
