Thanks to those curved sides, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is a premium phone, and the handset comes with a price tag to match. If you want to get one from AT&T, you're looking at paying over $900. Fortunately, if you don't mind refurbished units, you can currently order one on eBay for $550.
While you may not be getting a brand new device, you still have your choice of colors. The seller is offering these things in black and white. Shipping is free, but devices will only go out to certain parts of the world. The US and Canada are covered, as is much of Europe along with Australia and New Zealand. Read More
I didn't know this device existed before today, but now that I've seen it, I can't live without it. The gadget I'm talking about is the UNITEK 5V/24A 10-Port USB Desktop Charging Station. This beauty charges up to ten gadgets and simultaneously provides a cradle for each of your tech toys while they feast on electricity. Seriously, I think I'm in love.
Each of the ten USB ports on the UNITEK charging station puts out a maximum of 5V/2.4A. SmartIC technology automatically detects which type of device is connected to each port and administers the appropriate amount of power while also protecting against overheating and overcharging. Read More
Like the Kindle tablets that came before it, Amazon's Fire TV Stick is built on top of a customized version of Android. You won't find the Play Store and Google apps on your television screen if you pick one up, but it's still a good way to get your hands on apps. Then, of course, there are the ever-so-important TV shows and movies.
Best Buy is currently offering the Fire TV Stick for $25. That's $15 less than the product's usual price. This also matches the amount Amazon was selling the media dongle for during its big Prime Day sale in mid-July. Read More
Okay, so you just found earlier today that the upcoming Moto X Style will only cost $400. But you don't care about that. As much as you like the price, you can't wait around until September to pick up a phone. You don't like stock Android anyway.
Well, you can't go out and buy a brand new Galaxy S6 for under $400. You can, however, snag last year's Galaxy S5. The phone is currently available from Target on eBay for $340.
The Galaxy S5 is over a year old at this point, so its update-receiving days are numbered. Read More
It's high summer in the United States, and it's the perfect time to go outside and do stuff. Unless you live in the south, or the midwest, or the southwest, or parts of California, or the northeast, or any major city where there's more concrete than grass. For those places it's the perfect time to sit inside, hide from 100+ degree temperatures, and curse your air conditioning bill. While you're doing all that non-exercising and non-self-actualizing, here are some games you can pick up on the cheap.
Google has put a handful of popular titles on sale so far, most of them now priced at a dollar or less. Read More
We all love getting new stuff, but most people expect you to pay for it. What a bummer. At least if you wait for things to go on sale you can spend a little less money. Here are some sales so you can get new stuff (which you like) for less money (which you also like).
SanDisk is known for its flash drives and microSD cards, but those don't always play along well with smartphones. Even the dual USB/microUSB drives run into trouble with some phones. To address this, there's the SanDisk Connect, a wireless flash drive that you can use without need for Internet access. It generates a Wi-Fi hotspot which, after installing the SanDisk Connect Flash Drive app, your phone or tablet can use to access files.
The bigger the drive, the better, and now it looks like the 64GB stick has dropped to $50 on Amazon.
According to these three camels, this isn't the first time the SanDisk Connect has reached this price, but it hasn't happened yet this year, and the number has never gone lower. Read More
Last month Expansys USA was willing to sell you a Nexus 9 LTE for $380. That was and remains significantly less than the $600 the Google Store charges for the same device. At the time, it was also less than Amazon, but that company has since dropped its price down to $375.
So, why are we all gathered here around this blog post then? Because Expansys USA is now ready to sell you a Nexus 9, still with LTE, for just $340. That's $25 less than Amazon, and it's nearly half as much as what Google wants. Heck, it's cheaper than the official starting price of the 32GB Wi-Fi model. Read More
KMASHI's 10000mAh external battery charger is slim enough that you can carry it around in your pocket and charge your phone at the same time, as long as you aren't bothered by the prospect of walking around with a little bulge. Last month we saw it available on Amazon for $9.50 after a coupon code. Now it's back, and by entering JAK3JCUV at checkout, you can get it for $9.40 instead.
Yeah, a 10 cents difference isn't all that much. But keep in mind, we're talking about getting an external battery pack for under $10 bucks. Even if you don't need something slim, this is still a cheap way to recharge a modern smartphone three or four times before having to return to an outlet. Read More
