Project management is a vital role in many industries, especially the tech world. Building software or a smartphone is complex work requiring many people. Someone needs to ensure it runs smoothly. For this reason project managers regularly command salaries around the $100,000 mark. The best part is that you don’t need a college degree to start either, you just need a good certification.

This week in Android: Happy Birthday Google and Android!

Happy birthday, dear Google and Android! Happy birthday to you! That’s right, this week sees two big birthdays: Google turns 20 and Android turns 10. Both are milestone birthdays as well which makes this a little bit more cool. Since our favorite company and OS had birthdays, we spent a lot of the week strolling down memory lane. For Google, we took a look at 20 top tips and tricks in all of Google’s services, straight from the horses’ mouths. Then we looked at some of the significant milestones that Google hit along its way to becoming one of the the biggest companies in the world. Then we turned our sights to Android and the first Android phone to hit the market. But we can’t be all Google all the time, so we looked at a lot of phones this week too. We went in depth with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9’s battery and camera. We got a look at the new Xiaomi Mi 8. Is Pocophone the new OnePlus, and if so, what does that mean for the OnePlus 6? We’re also looking forward to Razer’s next gaming phone, due out soon. All that and more in this busy week of Android! Here are your top stories for the week 02:25 – Google turns 20: The 20 biggest milestones in Google’s history We break down all the biggest accomplishments...

What do you look for in a smartphone? If it’s great battery life, camera, performance, or design, then the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is the phone for you. We labeled the Mate 10 Pro as the best Android smartphone of 2017 in our review, and we don’t throw terms like that around lightly. The specifications of this awesome device speak for themselves: 12MP and 20MP dual rear cameras, 128GB storage, and 6GB RAM to name but a few. Another game-changer is that the huge 4,000mAh battery can charge to around 85 to 90 percent in an hour. The Mate 10 Pro boasts a stunning design. A glass back, combined with a rear fingerprint sensor and near bezel-less front, make for a thing of beauty.

We asked, you told us: Your vote for smartphone color isn’t a color at all

If you’ve ever had a color preference for your smartphone, chances are you were forced to grab a phone case to express your style. While the ubiquitous black and white hue options (not colors!) will always dominate what we get from smartphone makers, we are starting to see more colors and styles. And we aren’t talking about “midnight” vs “titanium” black either. With glass backs increasingly popular, we’re seeing a whole new trend of fancy color shimmers and light bending effects. I had a great time recently playing with HTC’s shimmering gradients in their U12 Plus range, particularly the flame red style (although translucent blue was the clear favorite for me, if you can call that a color). Huawei and Honor are all about gradient colors in their latest releases, with the P20 Pro’s twilight gradient catching the eye of many fans. It’s happening in flagships for sure, but even the lower end of the market is seeing more variety, including even the polycarbonate Oppo Realme 2. With all this happening, we wanted to know more about your choice when it comes to that difficult decision. This week’s poll asked what your color preference was, and 40,000 of you submitted your votes in our YouTube poll and in the Android Authority website poll. Here are the results! What’s your favorite smartphone color? Black wins! Schwarz, noir, zwart – call it what you want,...
