[Deal Alert] Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5 Only $340 From Target As An eBay Daily Deal

Okay, so you just found earlier today that the upcoming Moto X Style will only cost $400. But you don't care about that. As much as you like the price, you can't wait around until September to pick up a phone. You don't like stock Android anyway.

Well, you can't go out and buy a brand new Galaxy S6 for under $400. You can, however, snag last year's Galaxy S5. The phone is currently available from Target on eBay for $340.

The Galaxy S5 is over a year old at this point, so its update-receiving days are numbered.

Dashlane Password Manager Gets Support For Samsung Fingerprint Readers

Starting with the Galaxy S5, Samsung has been building fingerprint readers into the home buttons of its flagship devices. Their primary purpose is to give owners an alternative way of unlocking their phones. But some apps, such as LastPass, also take advantage of the hardware. Now another password manager has added support.

Dashlane's biometic authentication lets you swipe your fingerprint to automatically log in to sites or autofill information. It works on the Galaxy S5, S6, Note 4, and Note Edge. Dashlane will prompt you to enable the extra security when you fire up the app on one of these devices.

Samsung Galaxy S5 On Verizon Getting Minor OTA Update To Add GALAXY Apps, Fingerprint Authentication For Exchange Accounts

Getting a software update from Verizon is usually a real treat, since Big Red isn't normally too fond of pushing them out. Well, Verizon Galaxy S5 owners, this is one of your special days. Before getting too excited, though, there isn't much to this one.

Weren't you dying to get GALAXY Apps on your S5? No? Too bad, here it is. This is the rebranded version of Samsung Apps, so newer is probably better, even if many users would prefer neither. GALAXY Apps should have a far wider selection than its predecessor.

A more meaningful update is that the fingerprint scanner can now be used to unlock your phone when you have a Microsoft Exchange account acting as a device administrator.

[Deal Alert] eBay Has A New Off-Contract AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 For Just $350 With Free Shipping

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.

Case in point: eBay has the AT&T version of the Galaxy S5 on sale for $349.99. This is a phone that, just a few weeks ago, would have cost you $650-700 from any carrier without a contract.
