The LG G4 is still a fine device, even though the G5 is expected to be unveiled in the not too distant future. The price of this device is getting pretty compelling, and the sale going on at B&H Photo right now makes it hard to pass up. You can grab an unlocked LG G4 for a mere $349.95, which is $100 less than B&H usually sells it for. You'll have to move quickly, though. Read More
Google's cheaper option for this year's Nexus phone is now a little cheaper. Without any special fanfare, the LG Nexus 5X has dropped its price in the Google Store. The 16GB model is now $349 (down from $379) and the 32GB model is now $399 (down from $429). That places both of them more firmly in the mid-range price bracket, which is pretty nice considering the high-end processor and screen, not to mention quick Android updates from Google.
At the moment the price drop seems to be on the Google Store only. There's no mention of a "sale" or any of the usual indications of a limited-time promotion, so it looks like these price drops are permanent, something that's not unprecedented with Nexus models. Read More
Any USB Type C cable will fit into a compatible port, but that doesn't mean they're made equal. Googler Benson Leung (and here you thought the headline was talking about Robert Bunsen) has held companies to task, writing extensive reviews that reveal which cables are legit and which are liable to damage your Type C devices. The iOrange-E cables are in the legit column. Read More
Are you sad that you missed out on winning a Tronsmart Titan 5 port 90W QC 2.0 charger in our drawing last November? You aren't the only one, and hey, at least Artem let you enter the drawing. (Apparently there's something unethical about giving the prizes to your employees. Pfft.)
Now's your chance to get your hands on one of these beasts for a very reasonable price. Using coupon code 5USBPORT at checkout on Amazon will drop the price by $14 to $23.99– that's less than five bucks a port and one heck of a good deal.
Unlike some QC 2.0 multi-chargers that have one quick-charging port and four standard ones, this beast boasts five high-speed USB ports. Read More
If you want frequent Android updates but don't have the cash to pick up a 5X or 6P, then the Nexus 5 may still be your best option. Right now you can buy a refurbished 16GB model for just $150 on Daily Steals. The 32GB model is also available for just $30 more.
Shipping is free and no tax is added to the sale price. Both black and white options are available in each capacity. If you want a different (notice I didn't say new?) Android phone, and have less than two bills to spend, there aren't many better options out there, especially for someone who enjoys rooting, flashing, and customizing their phone. Read More
With winter approaching and the possibility of getting snowed in, there's a certain comfort that comes from knowing your phone can stay active throughout a week-long power outage. Being able to place calls and derp around online (assuming the towers are still active) is like a super power.
But you aren't born with that innate gift. First you have to buy an external battery pack to replenish your phone's reserves when that icon in the corner goes empty, and preferably a big one. Read More
Android Wear devices seem to be discounted pretty heavily after their initial retail release, so long as you wait long enough. For example, Motorola's original Moto 360 sold for around $300 at release, but the daily deal site Woot is offering a Champagne model with a metal band for just $149.99. This is the gold-ish version with a matching band in both large and small sizes. That's $150 off of the original price for the all-metal version of the 360, or $80 off of the gold model.
The same configuration costs about $220 elsewhere, in both the smaller (18mm) and larger (23mm) band options, both of which are available on Woot. Read More

If you drive a tiny car like I do, you know the struggle of a long car ride, two passengers, two phones, and only one power port. If you'd like to alleviate that frustration, head on over to Amazon. Today you can grab a Tronsmart car charger that has two ports for just $7.99 with a coupon. The charger is compatible with Quick Charge 2.0, and on both ports to boot. If that's not enough to convince you, they're throwing in two MicroUSB cables for free.
To take advantage of that low price, add the Tronsmart charger to your cart, then check out and apply the coupon code "DUALPORT" to bring the price down from $19.99 to $7.99. Read More
If you need an absolutely massive amount of storage for your Android phone or tablet, you might want to mosey on over to Amazon before the day is out. The retailer is offering SanDisk's Ultra MicroSDXC card in its highest capacity, 200 glorious gigabytes, for just $79.99. That's an amazing $170 off of the suggested retail price. According to the product listing, that price is available for only the rest of the day (Saturday, December 26th) and it ends at approximately 2AM Pacific time.
This is the cheapest we've seen this top-of-the-line MicroSD card yet - before today, the lowest price was $100, also at Amazon. Read More
