Weekly poll results: Who is trading the Chromecast for a Nexus Player?

Android Central readers love their Chromecast

Earlier in the week we asked everyone about their plans to upgrade to a Nexus Player from the Chromecast. Now it’s time to look at the results.

This was actually closer than I thought it would be, with only 39.2-percent of responders saying they have no plans to replace their Chromecast with the new Nexus Player.

LG G3 Screen sports a 5.9-inch display and LG’s own application processor

The Screen’s design is in line with the LG G3, only bigger, with this new processor, and a lower-resolution display. It’s running Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
