Most of the deals we've dug up for Black Friday have been for phones and other electronics - tangible goods. For those looking for something a little less corporeal, there's currently a very rare discount available on Dropbox storage. Dell's online storefront has a year of Dropbox Pro storage going for $59.99, which is $40 less than the usual charge for one terabyte of backup space. If that's not enough to get your attention, Dell will throw in $25 in gift card credit for its store for free. Read More
It's well into the evening now for most of the US, so presumably the bloody melee that is retail Black Friday sales is mostly over. If you've set your broken bones and patched up your bruises and you're still itching for some deals, the big box online stores are still offering discounts on MicroSD card storage, plus SanDisk's Wi-Fi-powered flash storage devices. Let's break it down by retailer, shall we? Read More
Welcome to a slightly more niche version of the Android Police app and game roundup. Because I have the Lenovo Phab2 Pro in my hands (note the plural there), we all thought it would be a good idea if we gave a list of the Tango apps and games for this shiny new device. Everything on this list will utilize the power of augmented reality and the sensors in the phone to offer some new experiences.
Before we dive in, I have a challenge for you. See if you can figure out what I am trying to hint at throughout the overviews. Read More
Motorola's recent high-end phones have been a bit disappointing, but the budget-friendly Moto G4 is a solid device thanks to its clean software, unlocked support for GSM and CDMA, and long battery life. Even when it's not on sale, this phone is a good deal. You don't even have to pay full price today, though. Amazon is selling all the Moto G4 and G4 Plus variants for as much as $70 off the usual price. Read More
If you're in the market for an action camera that can shoot in insane 4K resolution, you could do worse than the YI. Jeff Beck gave the camera an easy recommendation versus the more common GoPro models in his review, even if users will need to buy the accessories separately. Today Amazon has the YI 4K, in black, white, and pink colors, for $50 off. That brings the camera down to just $199.99. Read More
The Nextbit Robin is a quirky little phone, selling itself on a unique cloud storage-based Android ROM and a striking squared-off body. Ryan gave it a solid review when it debuted earlier this year, noting its appealing design and budget price. The phone frequently goes on sale from various retailers, but today's deal on eBay might be the best yet: it's down to just $149.99, a whopping $250 off of the original price.
Connected gadgets like Google Home and Amazon's Echo are neat enough by themselves, but they really come into their own when paired with connected home tech. If you'd like to get started on a collection of said tech, Google subsidiary Nest is currently holding a Black Friday Sale with $50 off of each of its flagship products: the Nest Thermostat, the Nest Cam security camera, and the Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide detector. All prices are good on the Nest online store. Read More
In an interview with Reuters, Xiaomi's Hugo Barra addressed a question that seems to be one the company has managed to avoid to date: its declining smartphone sales. For all the hype Xiaomi has generated over the last few years, it has recently experienced a sudden and dramatic shift in sales figures - and not in the right direction. In Q1 2016, Xiaomi's handset sales were estimated to be down 25% over the previous year, versus a global smartphone shipment decline of just 0.1%. They declined a further 38% in Q2 2016. In Q3, its Chinese domestic sales have dropped an alleged 45%. Read More
Want a cheap tablet to keep around the house, let the kids play with, maybe browse some sites on, play a few non-resource intense games, and generally use sporadically for small tasks? Amazon's Fire tablet should definitely be on top of your list. It comes in a couple of variants: the Fire Tablet 7 is the cheapest with a 7" 1024x600 display and a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor with 8 or 16GB of storage, whereas the Fire HD 8 has an 8" 1280x800 display and keeps the same processor but ups the storage to 16 or 32GB. There's also a Kids Edition of the Fire Tablet 7 that comes with a kid-proof case to protect it from damage. Read More
