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. 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. 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. Read More
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. 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. 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
Amazon Wireless sales are so dramatic and frequent that I don't know why anyone buys a retail-priced phone anymore. Case in point: Today's one-day sale is a reduced-price HTC One, on-contract for both AT&T and Sprint users. New contract signees can pick up one of the best Android smartphones around for a jaw-dropping $79.99, while those renewing their contracts can get it for just a bit more at $99.99. Two-day shipping is free (no Amazon Prime account required), and the phone is offered in silver or black on both carriers. Read More
Just over a month since T-Mobile began selling the Galaxy S4, the company is knocking $50 off the price of Samsung's latest flagship handset. Customers can now pick up the phone for $99.99 down along with 24 months of $20 payments. To save you the math, that's an additional $480 over the course of two years. T-Mobile is also selling the phone for the complete upfront price of $579.99, a tad cheaper than buying an unlocked version off Amazon (and with the bonus of LTE). Read More
A few days ago, Dell dropped the price of both Sprint's and Verizon's variants of the Galaxy S 4 to $119 and $129 respectively. Not to be outdone, Amazon Wireless has now undercut Big D by $10, and is offering Verizon's GS4 for $119 for new contracts ($170 for upgrades). That's a pretty solid deal if you don't want to buy from Dell, though I'd be remiss not to mention the $50 eGift card that Dell is throwing in if you do decide to buy through them. Read More
