We Brits are just getting used to Android Pay - I paid for a pint in my local pub the other day and was very excited when it worked - and in an effort to increase adoption, Mastercard is offering Transport for London (TfL) refunds and Caffé Nero offers to anyone paying with their Android phone.
For the TfL offer, people using the Tube, Tram, bus, Docklands Light Railway, TfL Rail, Emirates Air Line, the Thames Clipper service, Gatwick Express National Rail services in London every Monday for the next four weeks will be entitled to a refund providing they're using Android Pay. Read More
The Chromecast Audio is a great little device, allowing you to stream supported content to any speaker (or anything else really) with audio input. I myself bought one fairly recently, so I could turn my old iPod dock into a WiFi speaker.
Google today dropped the price of the Chromecast Audio down to $25, a whopping $10 lower than the original price. There is no sign of a Chromecast Audio replacement being announced at Google's upcoming October 4th event, so you don't have to worry about buying a soon-to-be-discontinued device. Read More
If you've never played the original Tomb Raider, you really should. All jokes about Miss Croft's polygonal charms aside, it's a certified classic that was one of the first action games to get third-person shooting and platforming right way back in the PlayStation era. The Android port has been available for over a year for the very fair price of one dollar. But if that's too rich for your blood, the game is back on sale for just ten cents in a lot of countries. And for once, they don't include the US. Read More
The Xperia X line is decent, but considerably behind competitors from Samsung and LG this year, with prices that border on the astronomical for their features. So what happens when you price your flagship phones too high and nobody buys them? Discounts, baby. Best Buy is already offering the mid-range Xperia X and flagship Xperia X Performance for considerably less than retail, and as unlocked GSM phones, too - no carrier shenanigans to be seen. Read More
Here at Android Police, we tell you readers about deals all the time, but we don't often showcase deals that can be applied to an item of your choice. Today, though, is different; eBay will give any buyer $20 off a smartphone purchase, provided that the phone in question is sold for more than $200, with a promo code. Read More
The second generation Moto 360 just celebrated its one-year birthday two days ago, but it's still one of the most capable smartwatches out. Now, for a limited time, you can pick one up in the Men's 42mm size from Amazon for just $228 in a gold-on-gold color scheme. Read More
What's this, three Deal Alerts in one day? You better believe it, because the Jewel/Sapphire Huawei Watch is down to $295.32 on Amazon. With the typical asking price of $599.99, this is an absolute steal.
You might be wondering, "What's the catch?" As far as I can tell, there isn't one. The Huawei Watch features a 400x400 resolution screen, a speaker, and of course runs on Android Wear. It's also one of two devices that you can flash the Android Wear 2.0 Preview on, so it's safe to assume it will receive the final update when it is released.
Possibly the only downside is that the Huawei Watch doesn't have the newer Snapdragon Wear 2100 CPU, which recent Android Wear devices include. Read More
Pssst. Hey... you looking for some apps and games? It just so happens we've got some of those, and they're priced well. They fell off the back of a truck, I think. You're not a cop, are you? Okay, continue reading below. Read More
With Bluetooth speakers so common these days, it is pretty easy to find one that fits in almost every price bracket. One of the more popular ones that I see around my hometown is the UE Roll line, due in no small part to its portability and water resistance (Colorado folks like to go outside, what can I say). The Roll 2 brought some improvements, including a longer range and louder output than its predecessor, but it maintained the utter simplicity that makes this speaker iconic. Coupled with the UE Roll app, you can set up an alarm, adjust EQ settings, remotely power on the device, and connect up to three phones to it. Read More
Here's a deal that may tempt you to lighten your wallet today. Verizon has the LG Watch Urbane marked down to a paltry $99.99. That's the cheapest price we've seen yet on the device and $130 less than what it currently sells for on Amazon. For a deal junkie like me, that's a seriously compelling bargain. Read More
