Mother's Day is coming, and Motorola thinks you should give a Moto X Pure to the woman that raised you.
To help out, Motorola is taking $100 off the device. That brings the base model down from an already reasonable $399.99 to a more compelling $299.99. The 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models are all on sale. All you have to do to fulfill your end of the deal is help the company make money by clicking the buy button. Read More
Say what you will about the latest crop of Android Wear devices, but it would be hard to call any of them "feminine." Even with gold-plated bodies or thin bands, the chunky or boxy nature of the watches mean that they don't easily conform to the current designs of women's conventional watches. (For my money, the most svelte looking Android Wear device right now is the Asus Zenwatch 2.) But Huawei is willing to give it a shot: a few months ago we caught wind of two new variants of the Huawei Watch, the "Jewel" and the "Elegant," and now it appears both of them will soon be available in the US.

Ryan Whitwam called the Moto 360 Sport good on paper, but hard to recommend in practice. Maybe we can amend that to hard to recommend at full price.
Motorola usually wants $299.99 for the smartwatch, but right now the company is offering the athletic-oriented Android Wear device for $100 less. Read More
I'm a big fan of the 3rd gen Moto G. For the price of a down payment on a flagship, you get a competent smartphone that most people wouldn't know was inexpensive. With a 720p 5-inch display, the phone looks and feels like a high-end smartphone from a couple of years ago. Read More
The 2015 Moto X Pure is one of the finest Android phones available right now with a clean, up-to-date build of Android and great hardware. It's a competitively priced phone, but B&H is making it even more so today. Starting now, the Moto X Pure with 64GB of storage is available on B&H for $399, and you even get a bundle of mobile photography gear valued at $59.99. Read More
The ZTE brand may not be the first that comes to mind when you consider high-end phones, but the Axon Pro is quite the beast. You get a 1440p 5-inch screen, Snapdragon 810, 4GB of RAM, and, thanks to a recent over-the-air update, Android Marshmallow. You also get to save money. Read More
You could think of the Galaxy View as an Android-powered all-in-one computer that isn't tethered to a wall. The 18.4-inch tablet is so much larger than the competition that early images showed it being carried around like a briefcase. It launched at $599.99, but after only two weeks of availability, Samsung dropped the price by $100.
Now the number is dipping down again. Read More
While they don't carry the same popularity as flagships from Samsung, HTC, and LG, Sony still has some dedicated fans of its unique hardware. Those fans will be glad to know that the Xperia Z5 and its smaller cousin the Xperia Z5 Compact are now on sale in the United States, right on time. According to Sony's blog post, both phones should now be available at Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo, and other electronics retailers. They're both being sold as unlocked GSM phones. At the time of writing Amazon only has the international version (without a US warranty) and Best Buy's website is only showing the Z5 Compact, but B&H seems to have all of the current US models.

Asus announced the ZenFone Zoom over a year ago, but despite how long the phone has taken to arrive stateside (after having long ago launched in other parts of the world), the phone is still a unique piece of hardware. Optical zoom is a rare thing to find in a smartphone camera, as is the dedicated camera button. Read More
The Nexus 5X was, frankly, overpriced from day one. The 32GB 5X was a scant $70 less than a 32GB 6P, the latter being a substantially better device in most ways. As such, the Nexus 5X was predictably the only one of the two to get a Black Friday / Cyber Monday price cut. Google dropped the price of the 5X by $80, bringing the 16GB to $299 and the 32GB to $349.
Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday have ended, you'd expect that the 5X would have returned to its original price point, but no: Google has maintained a $50 discount on the device with no end date specified. Read More
