Gather round, cash-strapped gadget fans, and listen to this not-so-secret wisdom: high-end phones are ridiculously overpowered. Unless you're constantly live-streaming your breakfast while running NASA-level computations in the background, there's really no need for a 2.5GHz processor, a 2K screen, and 3GB of RAM. But high-end specs are still nice to have... so the frugal phone buyer waits until the next year's model rolls around, then snatches up last year's flagship on the cheap. Read More
Not everyone needs a drone. But among those who want one, a good number of them wouldn't mind strapping a camera to the bugger just to see what shots they can get. The DJI Phantom 2 Vision quadcopter comes with a built-in 14MP camera. Convenient, right?
You can currently get the drone for $599 on eBay, and while that may not sound like a deal to people who don't keep up with these things, it is. Read More
The Sony Smartwatch 3 is one of the most compelling options among currently available Android Wear devices. Its comfort, water resistant body, great outdoor visibility, and inclusion of features such as GPS and NFC set it apart as the best Android Wear option for fitness and outdoor enthusiasts.
If the compelling features weren't enough to entice you before, a new low price may increase the watch's attraction. The SW3 is currently available on Ebay Daily Deals for just $169.99. Read More
So maybe the Galaxy S6 doesn't strike your fancy because of the non-removable battery or lack of a microSD card slot. No problem—you can pick up an unlocked Galaxy Note 4 right now on eBay for a relative pittance of $470.
ZTE unveiled the Blade S6 in January, a mid-range 5-inch handset with decent specs considering its $249.99 price. Now it's making a beefier version, the S6 Plus, available on eBay in global markets for $299.99 (£199.99 and €276.99 in the UK and Europe).
You don't have to pay the full price if you're eager enough to snatch one up right away. ZTE is temporarily selling the device for $269.99.
Whether you choose to wait, you're getting a decent set of specs for your money. Read More
Should you pick up one of HTC's RE cameras? I don't know. It looks like an inhaler and seems a bit awkward, but hey, maybe that's just part of its charm. If you've been on the fence, now might be the time to reconsider. The product is currently on sale for $99 at Best Buy as part of today's Deal of the Day, 50% off its usual price.
The discount is available regardless of whether you want the device in blue, orange, or white. Read More
Several manufacturers are moving away from 7-inch tablets, but LG still has the small tablet form factor in mind. The G Pad 7.0 came out last year, and eventually found its way to AT&T. Now you can grab that device for just $109.99, and it's fully unlocked.
If you don't mind Samsung's software layer, the Galaxy Tab S series are a couple of darn fine tablets. Cameron called them "the best tablets" you could buy" half a year ago, taking especially fond note of the 2560x1600 Super AMOLED screens. If you've been waiting patiently for the smaller Tab S 8.4 to go on sale (shunning the many deals on the Tab Pro with its LCD panel), today's the day: TigerDirect is selling it on eBay for $299.99.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a big tablet. Unsurprisingly, it comes with a hefty price tag to match. Back when it launched early last year, the 32GB Wi-Fi version came at $749.99, and the price has only dropped down to $599.99 on Amazon in the time since. AT&T still sells its 4G LTE-enabled version at $899.99.
Let that sink in.
Then take a look at eBay, where refurbished AT&T units are currently going for $379.99. Read More
Here's an interesting choice, high-end smartphone fans. An eBay vendor is currently selling both the flagship HTC One M8 and the small but premium Samsung Galaxy Alpha for $299.99 each. Both are off-contract phones with AT&T radios, both are 32GB versions, and both are manufacturer refurbished. Both come with free economy shipping and no sales tax outside California. Either one would be a solid choice for any deal-hunting Android fan, but the devil is in the details. Read More
