It was a wild week, Android lovers, with some big news, intriguing rumors, and a little fun on the iPhone’s expense. We reported exclusively on the launch date of Android L and the new Nexus 9, learned about Motorola’s Shamu, a potential Nexus phablet, and Droid Turbo, talked a bit about the hot new Note 4 and HTC’s periscope-like camera, and debated what it takes to bend a phone.

Welcome to Android Authority this week!

Say hello to our new community manager

We’ve long discussed internally the need for a community manager that would keep a watchful eye on our comments sections, forums, and social presence. Without one, things can get pretty wild, and often, not in a good way. We put off putting someone in charge of our community when we were small, but now that hundreds of thousands of people read and interact with us every day, it’s high time for a change.

With that, we bring you our newest team member, Luka Mlinar. Luka is a community leader on our forums and he will be responsible for the development of our social presence on Google Plus, Facebook, Twitter and more. We hope that having a community manager will mean fewer trolls, more insightful comments, and, overall, a nicer place for you to hang out online.

Feel free to say hi to Luka!

We’re hiring

We’re always on the lookout for good new people to help us grow the site. If you love Android, know mobile technology inside out, and have experience writing, here’s where you can find more details and apply. We’re also looking for great video reviewers to help us keep up with all the devices and accessories that launch every week. If you’re comfortable with the camera and the keyboard, just drop us a line at the link above.

Coming up next

It’s going to be a tough few weeks for our review team, with luminaries like the Xperia Z3, Note 4, and new Moto X coming our way. Stay tuned for close looks at all the things that matter about these cool new devices and a lot more.

Thanks to our sources, we know that Google will officially introduce Android L around mid-October. That means we’re just two weeks away from the biggest Android news of the year. Will more info leak by then? We sure hope so!

We gave away a Moto 360 last Sunday, but now we’re going bigger. This week the brand new ZTE Zmax is up for grabs. Interested? Get your raffle ticket here.
