Weekend poll: How important is camera performance when buying a phone?

Phone manufacturers have a tough time these days. The pure-specs Android arms race of previous years is mostly over, and flagships now sound pretty much the same on paper. But a truly premium experience often comes with additional features that can't be solved purely by hardware, like the camera. A great sensor is a good place to start, but it isn't enough on its own to deliver Pixel, Galaxy S, or iPhone-level photos. And the extra software polish required for those pixel-perfect pictures often comes with a much-increased price. That makes us wonder: How important is camera quality for you?

Weekend poll: Would you give up a front-facing camera for more screen space?

Mobile industrial design has a new darling in 2018: The notch. And much as specific eras will be remembered for the introduction or death of features like software navigation keys or headphone jacks, I have no doubt that the next year or two will see the camera cutaway percolate down through the ranks of affordability. But if you could jump ahead to one possible future by sacrificing your front-facing selfie camera, would you?

Weekend poll: Will you be following the 2018 FIFA World Cup on your Android phone?

Historically, sports aren't really our emphasis here at Android Police. As the name implies, we more go for phones and technology. But with the 2018 World Cup approaching, the coming matches are on many of our reader's minds—as well as our own. So we're curious, do you plan on following the games in any way on your Android phone?

Weekend poll: Do you use Assistant with any smart home devices?

We do a lot of smart home reviews here at Android Police, and quite a lot of that hardware is conveniently compatible with Google's Assistant. That makes it easy for those already invested in Google's ecosystem to configure a home with everything from smart locks to lights and cameras, all together with the same ease of use and flexibility the Assistant (usually) provides. But there are also many people that don't find them to be worth it, for a variety of reasons. So we're curious: How many of you use smart home hardware with Google's Assistant?

Weekend poll: Will you be buying a OnePlus 6?

Sales for the OnePlus 6 opened last Tuesday, and our recent review for the company's latest flagship was generally positive, especially considering the affordable $529 starting price. Android enthusiasts tend to be one of OnePlus' primary customers, and they're also one of our bigger audiences as readers. So we're wondering, how many of you bought or plan on buying a OnePlus 6?

Weekend poll: Which music streaming services do you use?

Earlier this week, Google revealed its latest music streaming service: YouTube Music. Unlike the existing app of the same name—which is little more than a video player—the new YouTube music would be more like Play Music or Spotify, but this time with YouTube semi-independently calling the shots. The organization and flow of subscriptions between YouTube Red, Play Music, and the new YouTube Music and YouTube Premium has led to some confusion, but the concept of Google maintaining two separate music streaming services inspires the question: Do you use a music streaming service?

Weekend poll: What was your favorite announcement from Google I/O?

Unless you've been living under a digital rock, you're probably aware that Google's yearly I/O developer conference was just earlier this week. At the event Google showed off a variety of new services and plans, covering a range from the immediately available Android P developer preview 2, to the coming Google Duplex—not to be confused with Google's other Duplex, of course.

If you tuned in or followed the news, we're curious: Which of Google's announcements from this year's I/O was your favorite?

Weekend poll: Will you be tuning in to watch this year's Google I/O?

For us here at Android Police, Google's yearly I/O developer conference is sort of like Christmas. At the event, many of the products and services Google has planned for the near-future get shown off all at once in a short but intense explosion of technology. Even if we sometimes have to wait a bit longer to actually get our hands on the stuff we see, it's still very exciting to watch.

We've got our own expectations for the event (which you'll hear about soon enough), and we've set aside time to tune in on talks we find interesting. But what about you?

Weekend poll: What do you think of the changes to Gmail?

Google seems to have switched itself over into full spring-cleaning mode, probably in preparation for an avalanche of announcements at the upcoming I/O developer conference. Among the most noteworthy changes in the last week is the new Gmail web interface, rumors and leaks for which have been trickling out over the month.

Now that we've all had a chance to play with the latest iteration of Google's now 14-year-old email service, we're curious. What do you think of the changes?

Weekend poll: Are you using any Google messaging apps like Allo, Hangouts, or Android Messages?

Earlier this week it was revealed that Google was planning to "pause" development on its Allo messaging service, reassigning those resources to Android Messages and RCS—which is apparently also being called "Chat" by Google. The company remains ostensibly committed to the Allo platform as a whole, but Google's graveyard is littered with dead messaging services. Some of them are even still being used in the absence of further improvements, like Hangouts. That got us to thinking, which of Google's messaging apps might you be using?
