You may not have paid much money for that new Nexus 5X, but the cost doesn't stop there. That single charger the phone came with simply isn't enough. You need one for your car, one to connect to your computer, one to keep in your bag, and one for every outlet of every room in the house, give or take a couple. Read More
After taking its sweet time releasing the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact in the US, Sony thought charging $600 and $500 respectively for the devices seemed like a good idea. Well, they're already discounted via Amazon for $50-60 off after going on sale February 7th. Read More
I'm a fan of microSD card slots. I know, I know, there's absolutely no reason to have this debate right now. You either prefer to have expandable memory or you don't particularly care.
If you're on #TeamGiveMeMoreCheapStoragePlease, then now may be a good time to head over to Amazon. Read More
You like apps, I know you do. You might not like paying for them, though. This is a guess, but based on what I can surmise about the human condition. Specifically, everyone likes a deal. We have some of those today, so head below and find some apps and games that are on sale. Read More
The G4 is LG's latest flagship phone, but the G3 is still a slick piece of hardware. At this point we're approaching the end of its software support cycle, but the hardware is more than adequate to keep most folks satisfied for another year or two. And if you consider the existence of CyanogenMod nightlies, there's a solid chance owners will get to run a few more major versions of Android on this thing. Read More
The Nexus 5 was a watershed moment for the Nexus program. It was the first device from Google that didn't feel like it was making any extraordinary sacrifices in the name of value or openness. More than two years later, many people are still using the N5 (judging from AP site statistics). If you are not among them, you can pick up the venerable Nexus 5 on eBay today for just $139.99, which seems like a great deal. Read More
Surveillance is a tricky subject. Are you comfortable with a world where you increasingly pass by cameras wherever you go? Maybe not. But at the same time, having a security camera can be a way to keep your home safe. While some of us wrestle with that philosophical dilemma, I will point others toward the Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit. Read More
The Jaybird X2 Bluetooth earphones are a great piece of kit. I don't know this firsthand. Artem loves them, I know that. And when they drop below $130 dollars, well, Jeff considers that dang near impulse buy territory. The two of us have different gauges for how cheap a pair of earphones needs to be to qualify as an impulse buy, but in case you agree with Jeff, the Jaybird X2 has again dipped in price on Amazon.

Few would consider the G Flex 2 the most exciting phone of 2015, but it was unique. The Snapdragon 810-powered follow-up to a slightly curved phone from 2013 lost some of the weight its predecessor (or rather, the people who bought it) carried around. Read More
The Honor 5X is already a pretty fantastic deal at $200 for an unlocked phone (even if David's review was more or less "you get what you pay for"). But if you're looking to sweeten the deal even further, online retailer Newegg is offering an additional $25 via a store gift card with the purchase of the phone. The offer is available for a limited time, but it's valid on all three colors (black, white, gold) and combines with free shipping.
The gift card is added to your cart at the same time as the phone, and users can use the code themselves or give it away (if you have a friend who likes to build PCs, it would make a nice gift). Read More
