At an event in China today, Huawei's Honor sub-brand announced the Honor Magic (not to be confused with the venerable HTC Magic). This device has the fewest corners of any phone in recent memory thanks to a curved AMOLED display and rounded chassis. Honor is also talking up this phone's AI capabilities and a new fast-charging technology. Read More
The Huawei Honor 8 just made our list of the most wanted midrange phones of 2016 (between $250 and $500) because of its impressive specs at a price that can go down to $300 sometimes. Well, now is one of those times. The Honor 8 is being discounted at several online retailers with lots of free goodies to sweeten the deal even further.
Newegg has the best deal on the Honor 8, offering $100 on both the 32GB and 64GB models in all of their available colors: black, white, blue, and gold (only 64GB). This brings the price down to $299 and $349, respectively, but Newegg is throwing in a bunch of freebies: $50 Newegg gift card, Huawei Honor 8 case, Huawei Gift Box (includes selfie stick, extra power charger and USB-C cable, and Micro-USB to USB-C adapter), and a JBL Synchros E40BT Bluetooth headphones that has an MSRP of $125 (now priced at around $90 on Amazon) in pink.

The Huawei Watch is one of the best smartwatches out there, with its only real downfall being the charging puck you're forced to use. However, if stainless steel isn't premium enough for you, Amazon's got a deal for you. Two gold-plated models of the Huawei Watch, which come with some pretty luxurious bands, have been discounted by up to $370. Now that's what I call a deal. Read More
With all the uncertainty, I don't imagine Android Wear smartwatches will be a hot item this holiday season. Some people are probably still willing to take a risk, but pickings are getting slim either way. Even though it launched more than a year ago, the Huawei Watch is still considered by many to be the best Android Wear device. It's no longer on sale in the Google Store, though. Read More
The Huawei Mate 9 was the first phone from the Chinese behemoth to come with Android Nougat — in the form of EMUI 5. Now it has announced which of its other phones will be updated to the latest version of Android and EMUI. This will come in the first quarter of 2017. Read More
The Huawei Watch is easily one of the best Android Wear watches on the market right now, especially when it comes to design. There are a few different styles to choose from, some costing more than others. The Jewel/Pearl model, shown above with a gold finish and tiny jewels circling the display, is down to $349.99 on Amazon, B&H, and Walmart. That's a whopping $200 off the original price, by far the lowest it has ever been (the last lowest price was $470). Read More
Here's a deal that should please just about everyone. Target's Cyber Monday promotion started today and is offering 15 percent off tens of thousands of different products. Purchases made with a Target Red card are also eligible for an addition 5% off for a total savings of near 20% (the 5% discount is applied after the 15% discount, so it's slightly less than 20% off).
As you might imagine, certain brands and product categories are excluded from the promotion. The most notable exclusions for our tech addicted readers are Bose, GoPro, Sonos, Google products, DSLR cameras, LG & Samsung TVs. Dairy products, alcohol, Vitamix blenders, and Elf on the Shelf are also on the excluded products list. Read More
The MediaPad M3, Huawei's latest attempt to compete with mid-sized tablets in the iPad Mini niche, has only been officially available in the US for a week. But the tablet is already on sale, and by an impressive 20% no less. Amazon is selling the MediaPad M3 for $239, $60 off the retail price. That's not bad at all for a device with its specs, especially since competition in the premium Android tablet space (and in this smaller form factor) seems to be so thin these days. Read More
The Honor 8 suffers an affliction that many Chinese phones are prone to: excellent hardware let down by poorly-made software. However, thanks to a beta of EMUI 5 that supposedly improves the software a bunch, the phone may be worth considering now - especially with this Black Friday deal. If a $110 discount on both the 32GB and 64GB models wasn't enough, Newegg is also throwing in the most amount of things I've ever seen bundled with a phone. Read More
