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
The HTC One M8 is one of the more desirable Android phones available at the moment, and if you're looking to find a good deal on one, "qualitycellz" (may not a be a real name) is happy to oblige on eBay.

At this point, it's likely that everyone who really wants a Nexus 5 already has one. But if by some chance you don't, an eBay seller is offering it at a small discount that could add up to significant savings. The Daily Deals page is selling the standard 16GB Nexus 5 for $339.99, $10 off of the price you get in the Google Play Store.
Maybe that doesn't seem like much, but add in the fact that you get free shipping and no sales tax if you live outside California, and the savings add up. Read More
Update: That's all, folks. It looks like the deal has sold out.
Say what you will about Samsung's plastic designs and overbearing skins, the original Galaxy Note 10.1 was and is one of the more capable stylus-enabled tablets on the market. If you're looking for a good deal on the WiFi version, eBay has a refurbished model for just $229.99. That's almost $300 off the original 2012 price, and still a solid $170 off of the retail price (even for a refurbished model).
The Galaxy Note 10.1's biggest plus is the Wacom-powered digitizer and stylus (S-pen) combo that comes standard with all members of the Note family. Read More
The latest and greatest Nexus phone - the 16GB Nexus 4 - is available in limited quantities for $375 from eBay Daily Deals today. "But it's selling for $349.99 from the Play Store!" you might exclaim. "How is this a deal?" Let me break it down a bit.
- You will find that Google may charge tax in your state. For example, in California, the Play Store adds on $30.54 of tax for me.
Update 3/23/13: The deal is back yet again today.
Update 12/01/12: It's back one more time.
That headline seem oddly familiar? It should, because the same seller had an identical deal going about a week ago. And now it's back.
For today only, you can get a brand new, in box 32GB Nexus 7 for $229 shipped. That's your price out the door - unless you live in New Jersey, that is. Read More

As a bonus, the shipping on these devices is entirely free, which makes it one of the cheapest high-end handsets you can get unlocked, excluding the Nexus 4. Read More
If you haven't already bought a Nexus 7, you're missing out. It's easily the best Android tablet on the market, bar none. For today only, you can score a 16GB Nexus 7 with official case and free shipping for $250. While the price isn't any different than the 16GB version directly from the Play Store, at least you're getting some freebies out of the deal - roughly a $30(ish) value.
One notable thing about this deal is that you have the choice of either a gray or blue case, the latter of which hasn't even arrived in the Play Store yet. Read More
One of the hottest gadgets of this holiday season, the Transformer Prime (see our preview and review), is scheduled to be released the week of December 19th - that would be any day now starting today. In anticipation of the launch, Amazon re-launched pre-orders for all four color/size combinations after they went dark, disappeared completely, and even got cancelled in some cases shortly after the first wave was sold out.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is one of the finest Android tablets in existence right now.

While most retailers are selling the 16GB variant for around $500, there is a deal on eBay's Daily Deals site featuring this tablet for $430 with free shipping, which is the lowest price that we've seen yet.
