You can (allegedly) buy a Nexus 6P from the Google Store. Heck, that's basically the only place that comes to mind. But if you don't think you can get the phone elsewhere, you're wrong. Huawei will also sell you the phone directly from its site. Read More
The Moto X series has been known for being a good deal when compared to other flagship phones. If you're OK with buying last year's model (which is still more than serviceable, and is scheduled to get a Marshmallow update at some point), Amazon is selling it for just $199.99 today. This is the American GSM version, so it should work on AT&T, T-Mobile, and similar MVNOs. It's a new phone featuring the stock 16GB of storage. The price is only valid for the next 16 hours (ending at 5 AM Eastern US time), so get an order in quickly if you want one. Read More
Android tablets in the last year haven't been particularly interesting, but I am happy we're finally moving toward the more comfortable 4:3 aspect ratio*. There are a few devices that use that shape, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. It sure is expensive, though. The 9.7-inch variant is a little less spendy today with a deal on BuyDig—just $399.99 with free shipping. Read More
You dang kids. Going to "country" concerts in your Honda Civics, smoking your pot behind the port-a-potties. Back in my day* we had real country music, Johnny Cash and Marty Robbins. Not this twangy-pop garbage that pretends that all you have to do to be country is throw on jeans and a cowboy hat, while you wait for NBC to cast you as a celebrity judge on The Voice. Daggum rotten little sdfggggggggggggg...
At this point Michael collapsed on his keyboard, blackout drunk after downing two 12oz bottles of Fat Tire Amber Ale. We apologize for the interruption. Your regularly-scheduled Android Police free album post will now commence without the musical commentary. Read More

Google isn't releasing a Nexus tablet this year, and the Pixel C isn't going to be out until some time in the next few months. If you simply can't wait to get a new Android slate, the Dell Venue 8 7840 is on clearance at Best Buy for a good price. $279.99 gets you the tablet new in box, and an open box item is $250-260.

The Nexus 5 has been replaced, sorta. The Nexus 5X isn't exactly as small as its predecessor, but it carries the cheaper Nexus mantle nonetheless. Still, at a starting price of $380, it isn't cheap. That's hardly flagship dollars, sure, but we're not talking budget bucks either.
Though thanks to a seller on eBay, you can get the original Nexus 5 for just $175. Shipping is open to much of the world, though folks in Alaska and Hawaii are out of luck in regards to US buyers. Shipping is free.
The Nexus 5 remains a perfectly usable device. It may be approaching the end of the line in terms of support, but you'll be hard pressed to find a piece of Android hardware with more custom ROM support than this one. Read More
When HTC announced its stand-alone Re sports camera, more than one commenter wondered what the company was doing leaving its smartphone comfort zone for an industry that's already dominated by a single player. Though the Re camera is decent enough on its own and the design is completely unique, it's not enough to sway potential buyers away from GoPro and Sony cameras, which have more features and an established reputation. Apparently someone at HTC agrees, because the camera is being discounted by a whopping 75%.
That brings the price down to just $50, well into impulse buy territory and much more palatable than the original $200 retail price. Read More
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
