Black Friday, or Black Thursday Evening, is only several days away. You're probably not thinking of making the Verizon store your first destination, but the Big Red wants your money just like everyone else. If you find prices particularly off putting throughout the rest of the year, this may be the one time to pay the carrier's site and retail stores a visit.

Samsung Announces The Exynos 8 Octa 8890

Samsung has just unveiled the newest member of its Exynos family of System-on-Chips (SoCs), the Exynos 8 Octa 8890. Like the Exynos 7 Octa chips from earlier this year and the Snapdragon 820 from Qualcomm, this chip is built on the latest 14nm FinFET process technology. The Exynos 8 Octa 8890 also represents the first time Samsung has custom-designed its own CPU cores based on 64-bit architecture, coupling 4 big custom cores with 4 small ARM Cortex-A53 cores to make up the 8 cores of the chip.

The company claims that the new technology offers a 30 percent improvement in performance compared to the Exynos 7 Octa while still managing to promise 10 percent more power efficiency.

Samsung Will Now Give A $50 Rebate To People Who Activate Samsung Pay, Instead Of A Wireless Charger

Are you buying things with Samsung Pay? Samsung is willing to give you a bunch of stuff to give its new service a go. In the past it promised free wireless chargers to anyone who activated Samsung Pay for the first time. It has since taken forever to mail them out.

The last deal expired a couple days ago. Now the smartphone maker is back with an offer that is arguably better.

[Weekend Poll] Do You Own (And Use) A Wireless Charger For Your Smartphone?

We ran this poll a little over two years ago, but I figured it was time for a refresh. Wireless charging seemed to have a lot of momentum in the smartphone world for a little while there, but there's no denying the enthusiasm from manufacturers toward it has cooled recently. The new Nexus phones don't charge wirelessly, nor do most of Motorola's new devices, LG's need a special case, and HTC has never been hip on it. The only major OEM pushing it is Samsung, with the Note 5 and S6 edge+ being the first phones ever to support faster Qi charging.

Sprint Offers A Free Year Of Amazon Prime To Customers Who Activate A New Samsung Phone In November

Good news, Sprint customers: you now get a free year of Amazon Prime! Maybe. If you activate a "qualifying" Samsung phone for a new line of service or a renewed line, Sprint will foot the bill for Amazon's premium shipping option for a year. The promotion starts today, and those qualifying phones are limited to the Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and the Galaxy Note 5. So basically it's just for Samsung's 2015 flagship quadruplets - you can't just run out and buy an ancient Galaxy S II for ten bucks and get $100 worth of freebies.

The offer runs through November 30th, and it's valid for Sprint customers who buy their phone outright, lease it, pay in installments, or use an old-fashioned two-year contract.

BlackBerry Priv Review: Good, But Probably Only For Keyboard Junkies

When I was in high school, BlackBerry was still an up-and-comer in the US cell phone market. The sleepy suburb I grew up in really had no widespread knowledge of them until after I had left for college. And when you start college in 2006, a year before the first iPhone (released at the end of my freshman year), it’s probably not surprising to learn that shiny-new-MacBook toting shiny-new-adults at a big state school turned up their noses at something as staid and “establishment” as a BlackBerry. Everyone who was into “cell-phone-as-status-symbol” knew it was the iPhone that was changing everything.

ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser Review: One Of The Best Budget Phones Gets A Little Bit Better

ASUS in the recent past has been pushing harder into Western markets and into smartphones in general with the ZenFone product line and its associated ZenUI software layer. Those who remember the Transformer tablets of yesteryear may be surprised at the non-geeky, colorful, feature-filled approach of these devices. Now well into the second generation of ZenFones, ASUS has announced the ZenFone 2 Laser for wide release, including the USA.

It is a slight refinement on the ZenFone 2, which we reviewed back in June. David felt that its base model was one of the best values around for just $199.
