Samsung posts Q2 financial results, not as impressive but still higher

It’s that time of the year when companies are announcing their quarterly financial results left and right. We’re only interested in some of the top brands in the mobile industry today so after Google, we’re moving the spotlight on Samsung. The South Korean giant recently announced the second quarter financial results, showing us a three percent increase from the previous quarter. That may be a small percent but operating profit for Q2 was 6.9 Trillion KRW which is about $5.9 Billion. Total revenue reached 48 Trillion KRW ($41.28 Billion) from all of Samsung businesses.

Google Translate update brings 20 more languages to visual translator 

It’s not exactly a secret, but not a lot of people know the secret weapon of the Google Translate app. Most users just type in text in the app that they would like to be translated to another language or copy paste something from a website and translate it to their native language.

Brazilian police value stolen prototype of Xperia C5 Ultra at $12M

If you think that stealing a prototype of an upcoming gadget is a piece of cake, think again, especially if you live in Brazil. Whoever was caught with a stolen prototype of the soon to be announced Sony Xperia C5 Ultra will not just be faced with jail time (we assume) but probably a hefty fine as well. That’s because they have valued the prototype not at the supposed market price but rather on the development cost of the device, which is at $12M.

With the introduction of various instant messaging apps that work over WiFi or cellular Internet, mobile communication rapidly changed. Before, it’s okay to just have access to a cellular network to make a voice call or send text but now, 3G or 4G connection is very much a necessity.

CloudPlayer offers Chromecast support, offline playback, and audio presets

The future of cloud is bright. Physical hard drives are no longer needed as long as you have quick access to any cloud storage. There are free services available but some may require you minimal fee. No matter how you access the cloud, you can't deny the fact that it's very convenient. You can just download any cloud app from the Google Play Store but only a few can work as an easy and reliable music player for all your audio files.

Curate your favorite photos in VSCO with their new Collections feature

We’ve kind of always known that VSCO would not simply remain a photo editor, although it is a great one (some would say, it is actually the best). It was inevitable that they would turn into something like Instagram, or maybe something even better. The newest feature for their mobile apps, including Android, is something called Collections, which allows you to re-share the photos you discovered on the app by adding them to your timeline.
