Even though I own a Moto Z, I must admit that it isn't exactly the most compelling flagship offering out there. Not only does it lack a headphone jack and have terrible battery life because it's so damn thin, it's priced at an astronomically high $699.99 (though, to be fair, it can be found for sale at a much lower price).
The Moto Z Play, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. As Ryan found, it corrects most of the Moto Z's shortcomings, while managing to come in at a much lower MSRP of $449.99. Now, with discounts of $50 on new units and $110 on slightly used ones, there's never been a better time to pick a Z Play up. Read More
Christmas has come and gone and you're probably thinking who on earth a) still has money to buy anything and b) cares about car chargers enough to purchase one right now. But you'd be wrong. One, because many of you may have long car rides ahead of them on New Year's Eve or a day or two after, and two, because you've probably spent a lot of money purchasing gifts that you'd appreciate a nifty discount on an item that you already wanted to buy.
So this is the deal: the Aukey CC-T8 car charger is now down to $12.99 on Amazon. This is the one that has two QC3.0 ports and not just one regular port and one QC3.0 like the other charger we told you about a few days ago. Read More
One of the finest $200 Bluetooth speakers out there is the UE Boom 2. I own one and it is a benchmark device that I use to compare any speaker in a similar price range that is sent to me for testing. Few sound as good as it does, and none also boast all the other great features the speaker offers. Those features include an eye-catching design, long battery life, a waterproof and shockproof body, and Google Now voice integration. Read More

As a community of tech addicts, we tend to be a bit more demanding of our phone's battery life than the average user. Because of this, we need to take advantage of every opportunity available to recharge our gear. A perfect time to top off the tank of the ol' smartphone is during the daily commute. If you are fortunate enough to have a short one (you lucky devil) then you need a car charger that can provide the much-needed juice in a hurry. Read More

The definition of a toy nowadays is a lot more complicated and advanced than when I was still a kid. A small toy car, a plush bear, heck even a new eraser or pencil sharpener counted. Now, toys have to use batteries, be smart, connect to your phone in some form or another, and be expandable to suck you further in their franchise.
But as far as these kinds of toys go, Anki's Overdrive is kinda cool. It's a racing track with the obvious phone connection, where you can upgrade your cars and their capabilities, build the track as you want with the different elements, and even expand on it with more cars, track parts, and players. The kit includes 2 cars, 6 curved and 4 straight track pieces, 2 riser pieces, 1 charging system, and 1 tire cleaner. Read More
The HTC 10 is really quite a nice phone, and it was such an improvement over its predecessor, the One M9, that we recently gave HTC Android Police's Most-Improved OEM of 2016 award. Arguably the largest issue was its price; at $699, it was a tad out of reach for some. However, HTC's latest Hot Deals sale discounts the 10 to just $499, a $200 reduction, and a free pair of wireless headphones. Not bad. Read More
The Huawei Honor 8 just made our list of the most wanted midrange phones of 2016 (between $250 and $500) because of its impressive specs at a price that can go down to $300 sometimes. Well, now is one of those times. The Honor 8 is being discounted at several online retailers with lots of free goodies to sweeten the deal even further.
Newegg has the best deal on the Honor 8, offering $100 on both the 32GB and 64GB models in all of their available colors: black, white, blue, and gold (only 64GB). This brings the price down to $299 and $349, respectively, but Newegg is throwing in a bunch of freebies: $50 Newegg gift card, Huawei Honor 8 case, Huawei Gift Box (includes selfie stick, extra power charger and USB-C cable, and Micro-USB to USB-C adapter), and a JBL Synchros E40BT Bluetooth headphones that has an MSRP of $125 (now priced at around $90 on Amazon) in pink.

Looking for a last-minute stocking stuffer or white elephant gift? No worries, we've got your back covered here at AP – check this deal out. JBL.com has the JBL Go Bluetooth speaker on sale for just $20, which is half its retail price.

The Go is the smallest speaker in JBL's lineup, but according to its reviews on Amazon (4.5 stars), it still packs quite the punch. It's portable, sports five hours of battery life, and sounds pretty good – what else could you want in a $20 speaker? Read More
