Sony is releasing flagship smartphones at a furious pace. Barely six months after the Xperia Z2 was announced, the Z3 is already here. If you don't need to have the absolute latest and greatest, there's a good deal on the Z2 today. Just $399.99 gets you a new unlocked device compatible with US LTE bands.
So that new Nexus 9 is $400, and there isn't even a lower-tier tablet from Google anymore. So how are you supposed to get your low-cost tablet fix? Maybe this eBay deal will do it. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is on sale for $250, which is half the MSRP and a good $100 cheaper than most current prices. It's a refurb device, but that's still a solid deal.
It might not be the latest and greatest anymore, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is on sale today for the reasonable price of $369.99. That would be a good deal all by itself, but this is also an unlocked device.
There aren't a lot of options for big tablets with styluses, so the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is kind of the automatic winner. The only problem is it's so darn expensive. Well, unless you're down with a refurb. You can pick one of those up on eBay right now for the reasonable price of $389.99.
The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 has a 2560x1600 LCD screen with support for the pressure-sensitive S Pen. Read More
If you're in the market for a cheap phone with power to spare, there's an LG G3 with your name on it. Well, it's really best if you're outside the US, but do you really need LTE? At $399.99, the international G3 is a solid deal and $80 less than last time.
This is the D855, which has LTE bands for non-US markets—700/800/900/1800/2100/2300/2600. No, that 700MHz band isn't the same one AT&T uses. Read More
Update 9/26/14: The price has dropped another $20 to $379.99.
Update 10/23/14: The price has now dropped another $20 to $359.99.
The longer you wait, the more affordable products become. These aren't necessarily words to live by, but they're generally true. Not too long ago we were happy to share with you a new Galaxy Tab S 10.5 we found on Amazon going for $446. Now we've come across a refurbished one on eBay available for just $399. Read More
The Galaxy S5 has been out for a few months at this point, but while everyone is fawning over the Note 4, you can snag a good deal on the GS5. An unlocked AT&T-branded Galaxy S5 is for sale on eBay Daily Deals right now for $419.99. It's an open box, but that's still a killer value.
Each year, buying the current Galaxy Note device is an expensive undertaking. To own one off-contract, the damage done to your wallet is quite a lot to take in at once. AT&T, for example, wants around $800 to sell you this year's model. The most affordable way around this is to purchase last year's release. It's no less powerful than it was a couple of days ago, and aside from eventually reaching the end of its support period sooner than the newer version, it will satisfy most users just fine. Read More
Update 10/16/14: The deal, first posted on 9/16/14, is back!
Update 10/18/14: You can now take an additional $20 off by using coupon code CELL20SAVE at checkout. In fact, it should knock $20 off any $200+ phone purchase on eBay (thanks, Paul Domansky).
People looking to snag an unlocked version of a high-end flagship device generally have to spend up upwards of half a grand. Today we've come across a refurbished version of the HTC One M8 on eBay that's going for just $389.99. Read More
So there's this South Korean seller on eBay who seems to have a large stock of Sandisk's Class 10 Micro SDHC cards and wants to get rid of them. For $10 a pop, you can get your hands on this very decent amount of extra storage for your phone, tablet, or other gadgets. green-sum (that's the name of the seller) will be nice enough to ship it to your "worldwide" Read More
for free for what seems to be a $5 fee across several ZIP codes we tried (the seller did list with free shipping originally, but the amount has since gone up), as long as your definition of "worldwide" excludes Asia, Africa, Europe, Oceania, South America, and basically any territory that isn't the United States minus Alaska and Hawaii.
