It's now available from T-Mobile, and it will only cost you $139.99. In leasing terms, that's $5.84 on your bill for twenty-four months. Read More
The 5X may not be as flashy or as powerful as its more refined big brother, the 6P, but it sure is a heck of a lot cheaper. Google already is selling the phone at a pretty good price, but today you can pick up both models for $20 less on eBay.
Buydig via eBay has the 32GB 5X marked down to $330 and the 16GB model for only $280. That's a low enough price to make my fingers itch. Seriously, I'm very tempted to take the plunge and buy myself a cheap slab of Marshmallow.
Here's a quick reminder of the phone's upper mid-range specs for those of you who haven't memorized them already. Read More

If you load the Google Keep web interface this morning, you'll probably get a helpful blue update box at the top. This box informs you of a new feature in Keep for web and Android—centralized settings. Yes, this is something Keep did not have before, and technically the app still doesn't. We expect an update soon, but it's live online already.
Android aficionados in India have a few more options today when it comes time to get a new device, courtesy of Motorola. As promised, the Moto X Force is on sale, and the previously available Moto G variants have come to Amazon India. Read More
Before there was even a watchface API for Android Wear, Facer was the go-to app to create and customize your watch's design. The app was later updated to conform with Google's watchface API and has since enjoyed a nice spot as one of the best watchmakers for Android Wear. Competition has gone up however, with apps like Pujie Black and WatchMaker getting a share of the watch customization pie.
