Microsoft’s Hyperlapse app gains support for the Moto X, Galaxy S4, Moto G and more


Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile 3

Released as a beta into the Play Store last week, Microsoft’s new Hyperlapse application allows users to create beautiful time-lapse videos on Android with ease. The app was only originally compatible with a few Samsung devices, the Nexus 5, 6 and 9, the Sony Xperia Z3 and the HTC One M8 and M9. An update was pushed out just four days later, adding support for the OnePlus One, Droid Turbo, Galaxy Note Edge, and a few other devices. To continue the trend of timely updates, Microsoft has just sent out another update, adding support for five more Android devices.

Here are the new devices supported by the app:

  • Moto X (1st Gen.)
  • Moto G (1st Gen.)
  • Moto G (2nd Gen.)
  • Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4

The application is still in beta, so if you’d like to try it, you’ll need to jump through a few hoops to get the download. First, you’ll need to join the Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile for Android preview Google+ community. After that, check out this site to become a tester. Then you can head to the Google Play Store to download the application. As always, it might take a few minutes for the Play Store link to show up for you, so you might need to be patient!

Achievement unlocked: Samsung has shipped 10 million Galaxy S6 handsets

Samsung‘s confidence in its latest flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, is sky high, and in news that shouldn’t surprise anyone at all, that confidence has been translated into 10 million Galaxy S6 handsets shipped just after a month after the devices were officially released. In fact, a “high ranking Samsung official” allegedly said that sales, not shipments, have already surpassed 10 million and that the 10 million devices shipped mark was passed some time ago. I’m sure we’ll hear about exactly how many devices Samsung has sold so far sooner rather than later, but its impressive nonetheless.

None of this is particularly surprising considering the interest that both these devices have garnered since they were announced at MWC 2015. The only other time Samsung has experienced such popularity was with the Galaxy S4 which met the same target in its first month – arguably, though, the Galaxy S6 is in a much tougher market and has done much better to stand out among fierce competition from all corners of the smartphone world.

Android 5.0 Lollipop now rolling out to the Sprint Galaxy S4


moto x vs galaxy s4 aa design s4 back in hand

Sprint is now beginning to roll out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Samsung Galaxy S4. The update, which will bring the build number up to L720VPUGOD2, is for the non-Spark variant of the device.

So what exactly will this update bring to your S4? Consisting of both aesthetic and under the hood enhancements, Lollipop brings a lot to the table. Google has included a ton of visual changes with its new Material Design guidelines, as well as a ton of new animations throughout the UI. These changes won’t be as noticeable as they are on a device running vanilla Android, thanks to Samsung’s Touchwiz overlay. Some additional features include the switch to the Android Runtime (ART), Priority Mode notifications, Smart Lock and much more. According to the software update page, it doesn’t look like Sprint has included any carrier-specific changes in this update.

Android 5.0 Lollipop now rolling out to Sprint Galaxy S4

Samsung has certainly done a fairly good job of turning their update image around over the last few months. I remember a time when updates to anything over a year old was a pipe dream and if it did land, it would be for the international variant. Now we are seeing a near weekly push from one carrier or another to one device or another that is putting Android 5.0 Lollipop in the hands of consumers. Today we see word on the Sprint support page for the Samsung Galaxy S4 in regards to updating to Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Sprint is a little caddy about what all is included though. We have seen Verizon start pushing Lyft into updates while AT&T is pushing Uber in. Sprints last update to the Galaxy S4 was back in July of 2014 and brought along the HD Voice icon and some Google security patches. With the Lollipop update that is all they list in the description section. Not that it is a bad thing if they just handed over Android 5.0, but I am sure there are apps removed, things fixed and possibly new things included.


If you are still sporting a stock Samsung Galaxy S4 on the Now Network, then be on the lookout for a software update. It will be rolling out in stages as usual, but you can always head into Settings > More > System Update > Update Samsung Software > Check Now. Undoubtedly you will need well over 50% battery life, a solid Wi-Fi connection and plenty of time to kill for the file to download and install. Previous updates on other carriers seemed to land around 1GB. In the end, you should end up Android 5.0 Lollipop with version number L720VPUGOD2.

Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S4 gets Android 5.0 Lollipop


Samsung Galaxy S4 Lollipop Update

It’s a known fact that old technology–even if its only three years–often doesn’t get updated to the latest and greatest, such as Android 5.0 Lollipop. We’ve seen this time and time again with Samsung and LG devices. Thankfully, Galaxy S4 owners aren’t apart of that crowd, and users touting the device on Sprint should be getting the update sometime today.

If you haven’t been prompted to download the new firmware version, select the check for updates option in your smartphone. However, keep in mind that you may not receive it today, as these updates are often rolled out in stages, as is the case with many carriers.

Have you received Android 5.0 Lollipop on your Galaxy S4 yet? Be sure to let us know in the comments.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 updated to Android Lollipop


galaxy s4 vs iphone 5 s4 back aa

It has been known for a while now that the Samsung Galaxy S4 would eventually be updated to Lollipop. Since the announcement, the Galaxy S4 has seen slow progress with the update first landing in Russia and India, then seeing a few European countries, and now the US is finally starting to receive Lollipop as well. AT&T and T-Mobile’s variants have already received the update and this week customers who own the Galaxy S4 on Verizon will also see the latest sweet treat.

The update pushes the Galaxy S4 to Android 5.0.1, and like most of Samsung’s other devices to receive Lollipop, the update includes a slightly tweaked Touchwiz UI that better matches Google’s Material Design, though the aesthetic changes aren’t nearly as noticeable as what you’d find in a stock Android device. The Samsung apps have gotten lighter with a white background and colours to match those seen in the latest Galaxy handsets. This update is also supposed to bring performance enhancements and possibly longer battery life.

If you have received this update, feel free to leave your impressions down in the comments.

Yet another report of Samsung being surprised at Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge popularity

By now, you will have heard that Samsung‘s flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, are quite amazing devices. Accordingly, they are extremely popular pretty much everywhere that they have gone on sale, so it should come as no surprise that both devices are killing it in Samsung’s native South Korea. Yonhap News is reporting that sales for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge have been “much higher than expected” and that sales have reached an “all-time high” compared to previous Galaxy S devices, and that’s high praise indeed seeing as the Galaxy S4 sold like hotcakes too.

What’s most interesting is that up to 50% of the sales in Korea have been for the S6 Edge, the more expensive of the two flagship. Even an anonymous Samsung official has admitted that their company had “failed to make a precise prediction of demand”, which isn’t exactly a bad problem to have, but customers wanting the S6 Edge might have to wait a little longer for theirs as Samsung catches up on supply. You can bet that Samsung will come out with some pretty impressive statistics in the next few days to highlight exactly how good sales have been.


What do you think about the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge’s popularity? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
