Samsung Electronics reported a 23 percent decline in its third-quarter profit despite surging performance from its mobile devices unit.
The South Korean consumer electronics titan reported a profit of 3.44 trillion Korean won ($3.08 billion) on revenue of KRW41.27 trillion ($37.43 billion).
Samsung posted declining profits in its memory business, where demand for PC RAM continued to be weak, as well as operating losses at its display panel business.
Like fellow Korean conglomerate LG Electronics, the company cited weak global demand for the results, but said it expects a pickup heading into the holiday selling season in the fourth quarter.
Unlike LG, however, Samsung's handset business continues to do gangbusters. The company is relying more heavily on the unit to generate a significant portion of its profit and revenue, driven by the success of the Galaxy S II smartphone line-up. The company recently overtook Apple for the global smartphone market share crown, according to Strategy Analytics.
The telecommunications unit posted a 39 percent increase in revenue as smartphone shipments rose 300 percent over a year ago, when the company was still establishing its Galaxy brand. The company said it has shipped more than 10 million units in five months since its introduction.

Apple engineers are looking into faster-than-expected battery drain on the company's newest iPhone, according to a report.
The Guardian reports that some iPhone 4S owners are being contacted by Apple after complaining about lower-than-expected battery performance on the company's support Web site. Numerous users there are saying their phones are lasting just a few hours, even with minimal use, and with power-draining features disabled.
The iPhone 4S launched two weeks ago in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and several other countries, and is expanding to 22 additional countries this weekend. It boasts an extra hour of 3G talk time compared with the iPhone 4, while coming in at 100 hours less of standby time, based on Apple's own testing. CNET's own iPhone 4S battery testing with a model on Sprint's network yielded 9.2 hours of talk time on the carrier's 3G EV-DO Rev. A network, coming in as the strongest iPhone battery test to date.

Facebook released an infographic blog post yesterday that says about 600,000 log-ins per day are compromised. That's given some the false impression that there are that many accounts compromised every day.
An undisclosed number of those 600,000 log-in cases may involve accounts that are already compromised and Facebook will likely block the account after discovering that.
So, how many accounts are compromised a day? The Facebook spokesman said he does not have statistics for that.
