Deal hunters, get an early start on this one. Amazon's US store has slashed the unlocked Nexus 6 price by another $150 (in addition to the $150 price cut a few months ago). That means a full $300 off of both models: the standard 32GB version is now $349.99, and the 64GB version is $399.99. This is a fantastic deal on an unlocked phone, and one that still keeps up with most of the 2015 flagships. Get your order in quickly, because at this price stock is going to disappear very soon.
Remember, the US version of the Nexus 6 works with all four major carriers (including Sprint and Verizon), most GSM MVNO carriers, and Google's own Fi. Read More
Back in January Xiaomi announced the Mi Note, a rather fetching midrange smartphone, and let loose some details regarding its more powerful sibling: the Mi Note Pro. Today, we got more information and an official release date for the Pro.
The Mi Note Pro is pushing the envelop of high-end smartphones with all-singing all-dancing all-heating specs. It has a sunlight-optimized 5.7" QHD 2560x1440 display from Sharp that crams 515 pixels per inch, 4G of RAM, a 64GB eMMC 5.0 storage module, a 13MP camera with OIS, dual SIM slots with LTE Cat 9 support, and Qualcomm's feverishly maligned Snapdragon 810 processor. Everything is powered by a 3090mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0. Read More
The Nexus 6 is a fantastic phone, but it doesn't have the appealingly low price that its immediate predecessors did. If you've been waiting for the price to drop a bit below the $650 mark for the base model, now's your chance. Amazon is selling the unlocked 32GB blue version for just $583.90, a solid 10% discount. The seller is a third party (with no Prime shipping), and at the time of writing there are only 9 left at this price - hurry if you want to grab one.
The blue model in 64GB is actually more expensive on Amazon than on the Google Store, but the "Cloud White" version of the N6 has some different deals. Read More
Update 8/5/14: The sale has been extended from July 31st to August 7th.
Motorola loves discounting its flagship Moto X phone at every possible opportunity. The latest is the nebulous "back to school" season, but I think they were just getting itchy - it's been a whole week since the off-contract Moto Maker editions of the X went on sale. Right now you can pick up a standard 16GB Moto X for $299 ($100 off), the 32GB model for $324 ($125 off), and the 64GB model for $374 ($125 off).
The fetching wood panel options are $25 add-ons and don't affect the discount, so you can grab a fully-loaded 64GB Moto X with a wood back and your choice of front and trim colors for $399. Read More
The 64GB Moto X has popped up a few times in Motorola's site code and in some leaked Sprint docs, but now it's official. Motorola has confirmed to us that the 64GB Moto X is going to sell for $100 more than the 16GB model. The company is also starting a one-day promotion at 11PM CT on Sunday June 8th that lets you try a custom Moto X for two weeks.
SanDisk's wireless flash drives offer a solution to a growing problem: the increasing absence of expandable memory options in the latest high-end phones. Users who are about to max out the space on their HTC Ones or Nexus 5s can't just pop in a new microSD card and be on their way. There's the option to offload extra data onto a cloud storage provider, but for people who rather hold their files in between their fingers, SanDisk's wireless flash drives can connect to any Android device, no cables of any kind required. And now the company is offering a 64GB option that's available immediately for $99.99. Read More
Today at Computex 2013, ASUS' Chairman Jonney Shih gave birth to no less than 11 products in a span of less than an hour, a surprising rate of fire we're not used to even at flagship events like MWC or CES, let alone Computex. Not bad at all, ASUS.
Undoubtedly, the most interesting and important announcement was the Transformer Book Trio, "the world’s first three-in-one mobile device." The Trio actually consists of two pieces:
- An 11.6" tablet with a 1920x1080 IPS display and 64GB of internal storage onboard, powered by a mobile-friendly 2GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2580 chip (32nm Clover Trail+).
HTC's One, the phone that has people once again excited about the
quietly brilliant Taiwanese manufacturer, went on sale around the middle of last month at AT&T, though at the time only its Glacial Silver variant was up for grabs.
Today, AT&T added the Stealth Black HTC One to its stock. For those wondering, yes, the 32GB and 64GB models are both available, for $199.99 and $299.99 respectively (with a two-year contract).
Update: Pre-orders for the One have gone live on the AT&T website - you can get either the 32 or 64GB version, as long as you want Glacial Silver.
After some misinformation was spread yesterday (and not just the April Fools' kind) about the price of the HTC One, AT&T has stepped forward to clarify some things. The 32GB model will sell for $199 with a two year contract. Additionally, for the storage hungry, the carrier will have the exclusive on the 64GB model at launch, which will cost $299. There is no word on when other carriers might get a 64GB variant as well, but we imagine it will at least be a few months. Read More
Just a week ago, AT&T filled us in on its pricing plans for the Galaxy S 4, stating that the 32GB device would retail for $249 with a two year commitment. While that is technically true, what the carrier neglected to mention was that it would also carry a 16GB model for $199, bringing the entry-level price for this phone in line with nearly every other major handset on the market.
That being said, if you're a nut for extra storage and you're debating between this and the HTC One, you'll pay more for the extra geebees with Samsung. HTC's handset will also start at $199, but that's for the 32GB model. Read More
