If the Galaxy Note 5 is essentially a larger Galaxy S6 with a stylus, the Edge+ is a larger version of the S6 Edge. You want a big phone with those fancy sides, and Samsung understands. The company hardly shies from the chance to produce another model that you might buy. Read More

The most recent Humble Mobile Bundle has been live for a week, and that means two things. First, there are more games in the bundle. Second, we're giving away 10 codes that entitle you to the full selection of games. Yay. Read More
The Note 5 is like the Note 4, but newer. Actually, while that introduction would generally be true, this year's model received the drastic redesign Samsung introduced with the Galaxy S6. Bye bye plastic and microSD card slot, hello glass and... no microSD card slot. Read More
Amazon's Gold Box deal today includes a ton of flash memory from Crucial and Lexar. However, most of it is of little relevance to Android devices. I mean, unless there's a phone or tablet with a 2.5-inch SATA drive I'm not aware of. What you can get are these Lexar microSD cards. They're up to 66% off. Read More
Fans of R&B, here's another one for you. Tinashe's debut album Aquarius is now available for free from Google Play. Read More
Looking for some cheap games? Then Electronic Arts and its mobile subsidiary Chillingo would like to offer you a selection for just a dime a piece (assuming you live in the US, Canada, Mexico, and a few other places). None of the games are particularly new with the exception of Power Ping Pong (which is pretty great) and the horror adventure game In Fear I Trust (which was just published), but most of them cost $4-5 at their regular prices.

The upcoming Nexus 6P is the Huawei device everyone is drooling over, but the modestly priced P8 Lite is also out there. This phone launched a few months ago for $250, but it's on sale right now for $200 to celebrate Columbus Day next week. I guess that's a thing people celebrate now. Read More
AIDE, the Android integrated development environment, has reached version 3.2. That means it's getting Marshmallow support. It's picked up the option to refresh Maven libraries. It has updated Android NDK support and Google libraries. And it's packed with other goodies that don't really mean all that much to non-developery types.
But even if you are a developer and you find yourself excited by what you just read, hold on to your butts, because here's where things really get good. Intel is sponsoring a number of premium keys. These would normally cost you $10.
To claim your own sponsored license, exit AIDE, restart the app, and select the 'Code for Experts' option. Read More
Do you know what costs more than a Galaxy Note 5? This year's new Galaxy S6 Edge+, which is essentially a Note with fancy sides. Both are priced at uncomfortably close to a grand. Frankly, Galaxy Note devices are about as expensive as smartphones come. Read More
