With only 9GB of user-accessible storage, the 16GB variant of the GS4 simply won't do for many users. Sure, you can throw a microSD card in it for movies, music, pictures, etc., but that won't help in the slightest if you need more space for apps (for now, at least). The solution? Get the 32GB version. And if you're on AT&T, Amazon just knocked the price down by $40, making it comparable to the 16GB version's retail subsidized price.
This price drop actually comes at a good time, as AT&T just ended a deal that offered 50% off smartphones $200 or less, which included the 16GB GS4 (unfortunately, that deal didn't apply to the 32GB version, as it's $250). Read More
If you're in the market for some new, high-quality over-the-ear headphones but aren't sure where to start, check out today's Gold Box deal on Amazon: V-Moda's Crossfade LPs are going for $75. These are normally $200 a pop (though Amazon's yesterday price was $107), so that's a fairly substantial savings (63% off for those who prefer to calculate their savings in percentages).
So, what makes these a good choice? For starters, V-Moda's headphones are rough and rugged – you can't break these things. In fact, the company stands behind all of its headphones with an Immortal Life Program, which basically states that "in the unlikely event you run over your headphones with a tank, with the V-MODA Immortal Life Program, you get 50% off a replacement for a lifetime." They sport a Kevlar-reinforced cable (which Artem swears by) that includes a mic and three-button remote. Read More
So maybe a refurbished 16GB Nexus 7 for $150 wasn't exactly what you wanted. It could be that you want more storage. Or maybe you just want a brand new unit. If either (or both) of those is the case, then how about a brand-spanking-new 32GB N7 with the official N7 folio for $189? You'll have a difficult time finding a better deal than that, for now at least.
Here's how it works: the original price for this duo is $214 over at Buydig. Once you add that to your cart and head to the checkout, enter the coupon code 30yrsHotDeals25 for an instant $25 off. Read More
Do you find that your devices constantly need more juice while you're out and about? There's a good solution for that quandary: a portable charger. As a day-one Verizon Galaxy Nexus owner, I quickly learned how important always having one with me is, and now I never leave home without one (even though the N4 is extremely battery efficient by comparison). If you're in the market for just such a charger, Amazon has a couple of good deals going right now for EasyAcc's 10k and 12k mAh chargers, at $28 and $37 respectively.
The 10k mAh charger houses two USB ports – one for 2A output, and the other for 1A (both at 5V). Read More
The summer is here, and that means plenty of uses for a massive external battery pack. Whether the entire family decides to stay out at the beach for a few hours longer than your over-powered smartphone can last or a particularly nasty hurricane decides to knock out power for a few days, you could use some extra juice to fall back on. That's why now's a good time to snatch up the RAVPower 5600mAh battery pack that's currently available from Amazon for only $19.99 with a coupon code.
This battery pack provides enough juice to charge newer smartphones completely up to two times. Read More
It's finally Friday! That means plenty of time to both download and enjoy new content from the Play Store. We've already seen some pretty great sales this week, but if you've already burned through them all, or just didn't find anything that suited your fancy, don't worry. There's a new batch of sales ready to get you settled in with a new app or game for the weekend. Check 'em out below.
When a moderately huge phone just won't cut it, there's the enormous LG Optimus G Pro. This 5.5-inch monster is LG's newest Android device and it can be yours for just $79.99 through Amazon. That's even lower than the Fry's deal last month for $99.99.
The Optimus G Pro is a step up from its predecessor, the Optimus G. The G Pro has a 1080p 5.5-inch LCD, 2GB of RAM, a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600, a 13MP camera, and 32GB of storage. They even tossed in an IR blaster. It runs Android 4.1.2, and can connect to Ma Bell's 4G LTE network. Read More
How useful is a portable device with a dead battery? Not useful. What about a bag full of them? Still not useful, and possibly a little dangerous in the wrong part of town. But what if the bag charged those devices for you? No safer, but it's now too awesome to matter. This is what Vault's Powerbag has to offer. The bag comes with a whopping 3K mAh battery and a sporty red exterior, and new members can get their hands on one today for just $14. That's a full $60 less than what it's currently running for on Amazon. Read More
If you thought yesterday's app/game sales post was all we'd have this weekend, think again. Just in time for Father's day, we've found even more apps and games to keep you (and those close to you on Dad's day) glued to your respective mobile devices all weekend. As usual, we'll keep the list up-to-date as we discover more sales!
The smartphone price wars are continuing after Amazon temporarily dropped the Sprint HTC One to $79.99 yesterday. Now Wirefly has taken the device down to only $49.99 with a new two-year contract.
Keep in mind this price is only available on new lines of service. That can mean a completely new account, or a new line on an existing account in this case. Upgrades on existing lines are $129.99. That's still a deal when you consider the $639.99 price tag on an unsubsidized Sprint HTC One. Read More
