Android Wear is not everyone's thing. I splurged for a Huawei Watch with a mesh link earlier today when Amazon's $100 discount kicked off, but you may not like the look of the Hwatch or the way Android Wear works. Or you might be invested in Samsung's ecosystem and have more faith in the way they handle their wearable's platform. After all, it's your wrist, you can wear whatever you want on it.
In that case, you might want to head to Adorama today. I know, I know, it's not Amazon, and you'll have to create an account if you never shopped there, and do all of that unnecessary work while you're still under the influence of a glucose coma from your meal, but it might be worth the effort of working a few more minutes.

Among our favorite wired headphone brands, Audio Technica sits conveniently toward the top of the list, and we're not alone in thinking that. Amazon customers and people who know more about sound and audio signatures than me like and recommend them as well. If you've been wanting to grab a pair for a while or you just want to supplement your headphone collection with a relatively cheap but good addition, today's your day.
Amazon has the Audio Technica ATH-M40X at an all-time low. According to Camelx3, these usually retail around the $99 mark, and very rarely dip below the $80 line. At $67, they might be getting close to impulse-buy territory, especially since they're almost as cheap as the M30X (which are around $54 now). Read More
If you want a top end phablet with a stylus, you can't find one with better specs than the Galaxy Note 5. You also can't find it cheaper anywhere than you can on eBay right now. The N920C unlocked international version is on sale for $550, over $200 less than the asking price at T-Mobile and AT&T.
This version of the device has very broad GSM band support. The antenna is compatible with all the following frequencies.
- 2G Network: 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
- 3G Network: 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100
- 4G Network: LTE 2100 (B1), 1900 (B2), 1800 (B3), AWS (B4), 850 (B5), 2600 (B7), 900 (B8), 700 (B12), 700 (B17), 800 (B18), 800 (B19), 800 (B20), 800 (B26)
The seller will ship the device for free anywhere in the US. Read More
Do you want to bust through doors, fire dozens of machine guns, and kill all the baddies? Then This War of Mine isn't what you're looking for. War heroes aren't just the fighters, they're also the survivors who find themselves thrown into a bleak world and have to scrape for meat, find a shelter, protect each other, and just try to get through each day unharmed and alive. That's the aspect of war that This War of Mine taps into, and it does so with surprising depth and sensibility for a "game". Our own Michael was very impressed when he reviewed it. Read More
You may think you have enough Bluetooth speakers, but then you find yourself in a room or a location where you don't have one handy and you start wishing you did. Maybe you placed one in the living room and bedroom, but what about the garden, kitchen, shower, or your gadget bag? Well, it's high time you filled up those silent speakerless spaces with music and podcasts and all the noise and sound that your phone can stream. Best of all? It won't cost you a lot.
At $39.99, AmazonBasics has a very decent deal on its Bluetooth unit with 2 internal 3W speakers, MicroUSB charging, and 15 hours of battery life on streaming. Read More
Deep Dungeon of Doom usually costs $3.99. That's not a bad price to pay for a fun side-scrolling dungeon crawler with different protagonists — crusader, witch, and mercenary — and plenty of levels that throw you back to the good'ol times of gaming with 8-bit graphics and nostalgic sound effects. It's even much more acceptable after the game was updated to remove all in-app purchases. Now all gold has to be earned in order to buy upgrades and all revive tokens have to be won fair and square.

Sometimes, when I shop for a new gadget, I want the best quality possible, even if it means paying more. Other times, I'm just looking for the product that offers the best bang for the buck.
The bargain I have to share with you today is firmly entrenched in group number two. Amazon has the Cambridge SoundWorks Oontz Angle 3 featured as a daily deal for just $20, which is about $11 off the standard price.
For a speaker costing about as much as a lunch at Applebee's, it offers a decent array of features. The main selling point is the device's IPX5 certification, meaning it is splash and sand proof. Read More
Love it, like it, or hate it, the HTC One M9 is the current pinnacle of the HTC One series, and as such, commands a pretty heft price when purchased new. The refurbished/open box price, however, has been steadily dropping. Back in September it was available on eBay daily deals for $379, which we thought was a great price. Today, the price has fallen even lower to just under the three Benjamin mark to $299. That's a pretty awesome price for a current-gen flagship.
Of course, being an open box item, there is a chance the phone may have some slight blemishes. Read More
As if deciding which Nexus device to purchase wasn't hard enough, there are also several other killer Android flagships that are getting cheaper by the day, begging consideration. One of the best of this group is the LG G4. Just a month ago it was available for $400, a great price, and now you can pick one up on eBay even cheaper at just $380.
The model in question is the H815 variant, which works or most of AT&T's bands and should also be good for use on T-Mobile, if you are OK with not having access to band 12 (also remember that HSPA+ will only work in areas with 1900Mhz towers). Read More
Qualcomm has just announced its Quick Charge 3.0 technology, but it will take a while to make its way into new phones and accessories. However, we're starting to see the commoditization of Quick Charge 2.0 accessories, like these 2 Tronsmart chargers for example that are getting their prices slashed in about half. Read More
