As can be expected the week after the release of Android 4.3, most of the top news of the week has revolved around this update.

Well, the Moto X finally launched in NYC, CyanogenMod released their custom camera app Focal, Microsoft Office for Android has appeared and we did some work with the old Nexus 7 and Android 4.3. Oh, and another S4 burst into flames and burnt down some poor guy's apartment.

A couple of Galaxy Note 3 models were spotted in the tests, and they include the SM-N900S for SK Telecom and the SM-N900L for LGU+, with both of them being South Korean carriers.
The Galaxy S4 Zoom is a strange device: a compact camera on the front, on the rear it doubles as a phone. Or vice versa, depending on what you were hoping to get out of it. In reality, it seems like it’s a little bit of compromise on both ends with the manufacturer touting it as a spectacular combination of smart phone and digital camera. Whether this device can actually live up to these high standards, let’s find out.
