Google is getting into the annual celebration of the American consumer, known as Black Friday, with a plethora of deep discounts. I'd love to apply my normal flair and lame jokes to this article, but this is Black Friday and I ain't got no time for that!
So here's the breakdown.
You probably wouldn't guess it if you live in the United States or Europe, but Huawei is actually a pretty big brand in Asia. In China, the national manufacturer controlled 15.7 percent of the smartphone market share in Q2 2015 — more than either Apple or Samsung and just shy of Xiaomi's 15.9 percent. This alone accounts for a significant part of why it's the third largest smartphone vendor in the world, with that only set to improve as Huawei expands into more countries across Europe and the Americas.
The newly announced Mate 8 is the flagship Huawei hopes will lead that expansion, and is the successor to last year's Ascend Mate 7, on which Google based the Nexus 6P. Read More
The Huawei Watch is probably the best overall Android Wear device you can get right now, but it starts at a whopping $350. To make the purchase a little less painful, Huawei is dropping the price on Black Friday by as much as $100 on some models of the watch. The savings continue for all of Cyber Monday week, but Black Friday has the biggest savings. Read More
Every Black Friday weekend there seems to be one deal that draws my attention by shining brighter than all the other flickering lights of lesser bargains floating around the dark confines of the internet. This year, this is the deal that burns brightest in my eyes.
A deal involving one of the hottest Android phones of the year, a killer price, a bonus gift card, no sales tax for most buyers, and free shipping make for the magic pentacta (it's like a trifecta but with five things. Read More
OK guys, let's cut to the chase.
An Amazon Lightning Deal starting midnight PST will drop the the 32GB Nexus 6 to $199.99 on Amazon, and the 64GB will be $259.99.That's an insanely good price and this is going to go OOS super fast, so jump on it quick if you want one. The link is below. This is Black Friday, folks, no time to think, only time to buy!
Update: The lightning deal is over.
Something about Thanksgiving seems to do weird things to retailers every year. They drop their prices and their customers show up in the dead of the night acting like werewolves during a full moon. Personally, I think the stuffing is to blame. I mean, have you ever taken a close look at that stuff? It already looks like leftovers the first time you serve it.
Anyways, Walmart seems to have eaten a lot of stuffing, because they have all kinds of deals going on. Read More
This deal popped up a couple of days ago but sold out before we could even post it, so time is absolutely of the essence here. You can get a brand new, midnight blue, 32GB, carrier unlocked Nexus 6 for only $299 on eBay while supplies last. Read More
The Google+ redesign from last week may look pretty, but it's also missing a lot of features that were available in the classic layout. This is true of every product revamp or relaunch: there will always be a tradeoff between getting all the bells and whistles of the new version and keeping the things you're used to on the old one. There's a whole help page that lays out most of the changes and features that the redesign still lacks, ranging from the simplification of profile pages to the (temporary) removal of polls from the web version. Fortunately, upgrading is still entirely optional, so for now you can stick with the classic version of Google+ if that suits you better. Read More
Google engineer Benson Leung recently started a crusade against bad USB Type-C cables, and one of the cables he warned people to stay away from is the one sold by OnePlus. Now OnePlus has responded to the uproar, saying that it will offer refunds to customers who purchased these cables. Well, you can apply for a refund. It's not clear how long it'll take. Read More
Whether you're a hardcore mobile gamer or just someone who likes to use games as a distraction to pass the time, basically everyone plays games on their smartphone and/or tablet. With the popularity of mobile games in recent years, however, we've also seen a rise in in-app purchases and higher-priced mobile games. But sometimes it's just hard to justify spending any additional money on virtualized currency or other in-game perks.
Amazon gets that, and the introduction of the Amazon Appstore and Amazon Coins are the company's answer to high game and IAP costs. First off, let's take a closer look at what's going on with Underground. Read More
