There was some stiff competition for alternative launchers in the early days of Android, but now thanks to tireless dedication and improvement from the developer, the excellent Nova Launcher stands at the top of the pile. Nova has been one of our favorite apps since it debuted way back in the Ice Cream Sandwich days, and while it's quite serviceable as a free app, the $4.99 upgrade to the Prime version is worth every penny. Luckily, you won't actually have to pay every penny today: it's on sale for 99 cents. Read More
We've seen the BlackBerry Priv go on sale for some compelling prices recently. Two months ago it hit $399.99 on Newegg. Last month it reached $379.99 on eBay.
Now we're seeing it dip down a penny below the $300 mark. Read More
Looking for a handheld action camera on the cheap? You'll struggle to do better than this HTC Re on eBay, just $69 and brand-new in the packaging. The Re may not support ultra-high resolution or exceptional bitrates, but it has a reasonably well-rated Android app, an exceptionally wide-angle lens, is waterproof, and a shape that makes it easy to just hold and capture. It also has a standard mounting thread on the bottom if you want to set it up for more passive capturing of your action.
What is it about the Duos (read: dual-SIM) version of Samsung flagships that makes them get discounted on such a regular basis? Whatever the reason, deal hunters appreciate the incongruity. After several sales already, an eBay vendor is offering the international 32GB dual-SIM version of the Galaxy S7 Edge for just $619.99. That's new, not refurbished, and it's a little less than three hundred dollars off the price of the same phone at retail. Go forth, penny-pinchers, and save.
If you've been holding off on Android Wear in anticipation of a good deal, this might be it. The Huawei Watch is on sale again, and some of the discounts on the more spendy versions are as much as $200. The deals are live on the Google Store, Amazon, Best Buy, and more. Read More
If you're in the market for some new Bluetooth gear, ley your fingers do the walking over to Woot's Electronics portal today. The site is offering a wide variety of Bluetooth headphones and speakers from a collection of different brands, all at around half off. This is one of Woot's daily deals, so the sale items will only be available today, Sunday (though they may show up in different sales later). Unfortunately Woot is a US-only site. Read More
We posted a pretty sweet 32GB Nexus 5X deal two days ago, but today's B&H deal is just a touch sweeter yet. Just head to B&H's website, drop a 32GB white or black Nexus 5X in your cart and use promo code "DADSDAY16" - you'll knock $100 off the price. B&H also throws in a couple of screen protectors, if that's your thing.
While still not quite as good as the Project Fi sign-up offer, this does get you a proper US Nexus 5X and not some GSM-only international unlocked model. That means this 5X will work on AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Project Fi (among many other MVNOs) - making it quite the cosmopolitan carrier choice. Read More
If you're a regular reader, you'll be familiar with our US Deal Alert posts. The occasional European deal alerts also pop up as well, but as of yet we've had no UK-specific deal alert (or none that I can find, anyway). That changes now, with the Chromecast Audio going down to £15 at Currys.
The Chromecast is normally £30 in the UK, so £15 is a considerable saving. I'm debating buying one despite not having any speakers to use it with (yet). The deal is only for delivery or click and collect - it's not available off the shelf in a Currys brick-and-mortar store. Read More
Nextbit dropped the price of its first smartphone a few weeks back when it launched on Amazon, but that $100 off promotion was only for a limited time. Now, here we are just a month later and the device is on sale again. You can snag the Robin in mint or midnight colorways for $299. Read More
