Things are picking up again in the Android universe. This week brought us details on hot new devices coming this fall, from the Galaxy Alpha and the Note 4, to the highly-anticipated Nexus tablet from HTC. LG leaked its own G3 Stylus in a promotional video, we learned more about Motorola’s plans, and Update Wednesday brought cool new features to Google’s apps.

Between the forums, behind the scenes work, and preparations for IFA, things are picking up at AA HQ as well. Here’s what went down this week.

Spotlight: Android Customization series

Our Jonathan Feist (we lovingly call him Feisty, though he’s actually quite a pacifist) is a man on a mission. In his weekly Android Customization series, he goes in-depth on various ways to make your Android device truly yours. It’s more than “apply this icon pack” and “install that app.” Feisty tackles tasks that could give you headaches if you had to research them yourself, like mastering Tasker, working with NFC tags, and easily transferring files over WiFi between your phone and computer. Keep an eye on the series – new post every Thursday – and let Feisty know what would you like to learn about next.

Coming up next

Our review team is getting some cool gadgets to play with over the next few days. Xiaomi is beginning to make waves in the West, and it’s already a raging typhoon in Asia. So we bet you’re curious about Xiaomi’s latest masterpiece, the Mi 4. Well, we’ll have a look at it soon. We also plan to dabble into the Chromebook world a little more and we plan to review a cool new machine from Acer. Let us know how you feel about Chromebook reviews, since it’s something we haven’t really done up until now. We’re also booking flights and hotel for IFA; just like last year, Josh and yours truly (Bogdan) will represent AA at Europe’s hottest tech show.
