The LG G4 has a lot going for it, including a confirmed update to Android Marshmallow. And if you're in the market to buy one for the Verizon network, it currently has some fantastic price discounts. A reader tipped us the following combination of coupon codes and rebates, so follow along:
- Use the promo code "LGG4SAVE" to take $100 off of a new G4 from Verizon's online store or mention it at a retail store. This drops the current price from $552 for the 32GB to $452. This promotion expires on November 14th.
Note: this code doesn't seem to work if you buy the phone outright; you have to select the payment plan.
If you're looking for a pair of Bluetooth headphones that are designed specifically for working out and other active pursuits, you couldn't do much better than the BlueBuds X from JayBird. The company has released a second generation of the headphones, but the originals are still quite good, and they're available with respectable discounts. Right now Amazon has them for as low as $89.99, at least if you buy from the right vendor, Amazon's listing (close to the top) on this page. That's the lowest price for the headphones that we've seen yet.
There's a bit of a catch: that particular vendor, which is selling the white version of the Gen 1 BlueBuds X, is out of stock right now. Read More
The Xperia Z5 and its variants are great looking devices, but for those of us in the US, they're just that—great looking. Sony hasn't started shipping them our way, no matter how far open we stretch our wallets. Read More
I don't miss remote controls. Okay, I haven't gotten completely free of them. But aside from my television, I've largely moved away from things that require their own button-laden controller. Blu-Ray players. Sound systems. Cable boxes. Why should relaxing on the couch be so complicated? Read More
Google launched the Nexus Player one year ago. It wasn't very good. Priced at $99, it was a hard sale. Now you can pick one up for half the price in big box stores like Best Buy.
Target was also offering the set-top box at that price, but now it appears to be moving units at even half that. Some folks are now finding Nexus Players at their local store priced at only $25. Read More
If you're an AT&T customer, you can have a free cup of coffee (or anything else from Starbucks that costs less than five dollars) on Ting. The budget-focused MVNO is offering a $5 gift card to AT&T users just for checking to see if their current phone is compatible with the service. Head to this address, enter your phone's IMEI number to check if it's compatible, enter your phone number (to make sure it's an AT&T account), then give them your email address to get your gift card. Not bad.
The promotion is active today, tomorrow, and Thursday, ending at midnight Eastern on October 22nd. Read More

When I fire up the Play Store, I generally start searching for an app right away. But sometimes it pays to scroll through the pages. Some users are seeing an option to save 50% off any one album under $15. Read More
You could pick up a cheap Nexus Player or an NVIDIA SHIELD if you just want Android TV in your life, but Sony also makes some TV with the software built in, so why not? If you need a new TV anyway, you can't go wrong. One of Sony's Android TVs is available through Dell, and you'll get a whopping $350 gift card when ordering. Read More
About a year ago Microsoft released a Bluetooth keyboard designed to work seamlessly across Android, iOS, and Windows. More importantly, this thing shipped without a Windows key in the bottom left corner. In its place we were instead treated to a generic home button, a neutral icon that looks at home regardless of your mobile operating system. Read More
