The Galaxy S6 was a game changer in terms of Samsung flagship design. Plastics became a thing of the past. Instead, the S6 showed off metal sides and a Gorilla Glass chassis. As far as phones go, it was a thing of beauty.
The software experience, not so much.
Janky software isn't as big a deal when you're not paying full price for a piece of hardware, so without further ado, I point you toward eBay. Read More
Had your eye on one of those Motorola Android Wear watches? Now might be the time to strike with a $50 gift card when you buy a Moto 360 from Best Buy. This deal covers all versions of the Moto 360 (both sizes) and the more recently released Moto 360 Sport. Read More
We spotted a few deals on the Nexus 6P and 5X yesterday, but it turns out that was just the start. Google is celebrating the first anniversary of the Google Store with $50 discounts on both phones, and most retailers are following its lead. In fact, some are even offering some extra incentives to get you to buy. Read More
There are two things you need to know about this deal. One, the Midnight Black model of the Jaybird X2's is on sale for $124.89 on Amazon, and two, that Artem loves the headphones this company makes. In fact, he loves them so much that if he saw you wearing them on a train, he would likely approach you and strike up a conversation about how much he loves Jaybird headphones.
In that conversation he would probably mention that he owns a website called Android Police, on which he reviewed the previous generation of said headphones in an extremely detailed 3,000 word article. Read More
Perhaps the deals we posted this morning on the 6P and 5X were a touch too Nexalicious for your taste. Are you of a more Mototastic persuasion? If you are, you'll be interested to know that the Moto X Pure is on sale today on Motorola's website. The 16GB model is a cool hundred bucks off, while the 32GB version is the recipient of a more modest $50 price cut.
These aren't just the basic black or white versions of the phone either, you can make any combination you would like with Moto Maker. There is still a premium charge of $25 for the wood and leather backs, but it's sweet to see the fully customized version of the phone for sale. Read More
The Huawei Watch has been one of the best Android Wear devices since its launch last fall, but the price was quite high. It's come down a bit from time to time, but today there's a big sale on almost all variants of the Huawei Watch on Amazon. You can save over $100 on some of them, but the sale is valid today only.

The JBL Charge is a great speaker. When David reviewed the original model, his biggest issue was the price. That makes it a good product to pick up on sale.
Right now Best Buy is offering the JBL Charge 2 speaker at $79.99, which is a significant discount from the usual price of $149.99. And since this is Best Buy, you can place the order online and pick up the product from the nearest store that has it in stock. Read More
Google is celebrating the launch of the Android N developer preview today with... a deal? Well, a deal for developers, specifically on the Pixel C. Google is shaving 25% off the MSRP of the device for developers who request a discount code through this URL. Read More
However, it appears it's just for the 64GB variant - meaning you'll still pay $450. We're reaching out to Google to see if it applies to the 32GB version as well, but it doesn't look like it at this time.
Dedicated GPS units come with mounts that make them easy to view in your car. That's an advantage they have over smartphones, but it's a small one. There are no shortage of accessories that can hold your phone in the same way.
Some options are more annoying than others. Sticking a mount to a window can take a while to get right, and it's not legal in some localities. I prefer to stick a mount on my air vent or CD slot instead. But even then, the grips often require both hands. An easier approach, for people willing to stick a metal plate to the back of their phone, is to use magnets instead. Read More
I like microSD cards. No trusting your data to file hosting services. No being dependent on having access to Wi-Fi or having to worry about burning through your cellular data allotment. You know your files are accessible when you want them.
When you're looking to buy a microSD card, one aspect to consider is whether it's big. Small is fine, but really, what you want is big. 32GB holds more music than 16GB. 64GB puts 32GB to shame. 128GB crushes them both. Read More
