Results: will you miss the Android blob-shaped emoji?

With Android O, Google is bringing a fresh new look to its emoji... again. But this time around, it's making a serious departure from a style that it has adhered to for years. Ever since they first appeared, Android's emoticons have retained a unique, blob-like shape, keeping them similar to the Android mascot's head. However, the "blob emoji" aren't really loved by users, often referred to as ugly.
Major manufacturers seem to agree — pretty much every Android phone that doesn't rock vanilla Android has a set of reworked, conventional-looking, circular emoji. Basically, the blob heads are only present on Google's Pixel and Nexus phones. But that's about to change — with Android O, users of Google's stock OS will get much more conventional-looking smileys – circular ones!
We thought we'd ask you what you think about that. Seems like most are happy to see the ol' blob go!
Will you miss the Android blob-shaped emoji?
No, I am happy to see them go!
Eh? Don't care
Yes, I love the blob-shaped emoji! :(

The new one kinda sucks as well. Apple's emojis are the best.

"Apple's emojis are the best." Don't kid yourself.

As long as each emoji means the same across OEMs... then that's all that matters.
