Back in May, we teamed up with Samsung to offer one lucky person a chance to show their mum how much they care with a Galaxy Note II. Since dads are pretty awesome, too, we've once again joined forces with Sammy to give one lucky soul a chance to show his or her dad that he's the man with a Galaxy S4.

The Galaxy S 4 (our review) has all the things that a dad can appreciate – a good camera, a blazing-fast user experience, and more bells and whistles than you can shake a stick at (not sure why you'd shake a stick at something like bells and whistles in the first place though).

So here's something we're not used to hearing: Dell's got some pretty good deals going for phones right now. Verizon's Galaxy S4 is only $129 for new customers ($160 for upgrades), Sprint's version is $119 for new customers, and both come with a $50 Dell eGift card.

The deals don't end there, either – all versions of the GS4 come with a $50 eGift card, even if they haven't knocked a bundle off the price.

Peer-to-peer fund transfers using an online service are nothing new – Paypal's been successfully doing it for years, and that's how AP writers have been getting paid since the site was launched. Needless to say, when Google announced payments through Gmail (which uses Wallet), it seemed like a no-brainer – we all have Google accounts, so this would be an ideal way to get paid.

Wrong. Getting paid through Wallet has been the absolute worst experience I've ever had with a money transfer, and I'm not alone here – this has been an incredibly frustrating experience for at least half of our team.

Welcome, frugal readers, to another edition of  Saving Money with Android Police, a sometimes daily series where we deliver the latest and best deals to hit the Play Store. Today's episode brings a few big names to the table, along with some incredibly utilitarian applications and a couple of good games for killing time. Without further ado, here's the skinny.

There, now you can buy yourself a plaque with all that money you saved

Fun fact: I never leave home without a microUSB cable. I have a short cable that stays in my bag at all times – you know, just in case. The need for charging and the like is constant, so it's hard to say when that cable could come in handy. Several months ago, a new Kickstarter campaign hit the scene that could end my need for a USB cable in my bag, and instead put one in my wallet.

Word of the LG Optimus F7 hitting US Cellular's shelves hit the scene a few days ago thanks to a leaked company document. Anyone who was interested in grabbing 4.7-inch device didn't have to wait long – it just landed on the carrier's website for $99 with a two-year agreement.

The handset features a 4.7-inch 720p display, with an unnamed 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of storage space, and 8MP rear shooter, LTE, and Android 4.1 running the show.

I'm sure the first question on your mind is why is AP reviewing a car stereo? Two words: Android app. Basically every aspect of the controlFREQ from Scosche ($119, scosche.com) can be controlled from the companion Android app (there's also an iOS version, but neither is required for the player to work) – or at least that's the claim being made here, anyway. The execution is, let's just say, less than perfect.

There's no doubt that anyone who loves Android, Chrome, or Google in general wanted to be at I/O this year. Unfortunately, most of us didn't get the opportunity to experience everything I/O has to offer in person, but Google livestreams basically all events, so we got to watch I/O from afar.

While it lacked certain things that we expected to see (like a new version of Android), that didn't stop the wow!

Last year, we took a look at Arkon's Dash and Bicycle mounts and came away impressed with all of them. However, the company spent the last year in the lab figuring out a way to make the mounts better, as well as add support for much larger devices like tablets. The result is the new Slim-Grip Ultra mounts, which come with a variety of options: a dash mount, quick-release strap mount (for bicycles/motorcycles), and a nifty cup holder mount – all of which are better than their predecessors in almost every way.

We all knew it was coming. StraightTalk Wireless announced that it was getting the GSIII LTE last month, so it was only a matter of time before its sister company Net10 did the same. Well, that time has come and Net10 users can now get The Next Big Thing Before The Current Next Big Thing for a cool $440 off-contract.

For those who may not be familiar with the Net10, it's essentially an MVNO and StraightTalk sibling owned by TracFone.
