New unlocked phones pop up on Amazon Prime from time to time, and sometimes they're even important enough to warrant a post. Today is special, though. There's not one, not two, but four new unlocked phones available on Amazon with Prime-exclusive variants: the Nokia 6, Alcatel Idol 5S, A30 Plus, and A50 (left to right above). They're all priced competitively, and you can save some cash if you don't mind ads. Read More
It's been a while since we've had any good UK related Android Pay news, the last tidbit being the addition of Metro Bank to the service back in February. You may have seen that American Express got Android Pay support in Canada recently, something I was more than a little bit jealous of as I've been waiting to have my Amex on my phone for ages now. Finally, my calls have been answered, and Amex cards now work with Google's mobile payments app here in the UK.
This makes me happy.
I didn't get a notification about this, which I might have expected given my Amex card is set up in my Google account. Read More
Outdoor-friendly Android Wear watches are a special breed and the sexily named Casio WSD-F10 is one of the species' rare specimens. Its announcement price of $500 didn't help it garner the hearts of many in the active community, and even though a few months later it dropped to $400, it was still hard to stomach.
Over the past months, we've seen some deals on it bringing it to $330 then $317, but none as appealing as today's Amazon Deal of the Day. The WSD-F10 is down to $249.99, $149 off its current MSRP and half price from its original MSRP. Read More
Those of you with a good memory may remember the ZenFone 4 name from a few years ago. In 2014, Asus was using screen sizes for its naming convention when it released the ZenFone 4, 5, and 6 with respective display sizes in inches. Here we are three years later, and Asus has long since switched to a more conventional chronological naming scheme for its ZenFone line. Following on from last year's ZenFone 3 series of phones, the first in the 2017 ZenFone 4 range has been revealed on Asus' Russian site. Read More

Looking for a nice, stylish smartwatch? If so, you may want to have a look at the ASUS ZenWatch 3, which we called "the best Android Wear device you can get" in our review. Amazon will now sell you a ZW3 for as little as $194.99, which is the lowest price we've ever seen there. Read More
Allo is actually a really nice application, but there are simply too many missing features for me to use it in any meaningful capacity. One of those missing features is a desktop client, which was first revealed by Nick Fox (Google VP of Communications) in February. In May, he tweeted that the web client was still "a month or two from public release." It's been about a month and a half since that statement, but the Allo desktop client is still a ways off.

Some of you might remember back in March when we took a quick look at the Top Greener USB-C wall outlet. Well, late yesterday the price over at Amazon hit an all-time low. If the idea of being able to plug your devices into a 2.4A USB-A and 3A USB-C compatible wall outlet sounds appealing, for precisely $23.96, the experience can be yours. Read More
