I used the DROID MAXX for more than a year. It is, hands-down, one of my favorite Android devices. If you're looking for a good deal on a fantastic phone that's a little past its prime, you can't do better than Woot.com's current Electronics section promotion. The Amazon subsidiary is offering the Motorola DROID MAXX in refurbished form for $179.99, a little less than $500 off of the original retail price. Read More
The 2nd generation Moto X is one of the best devices you buy running stock Android, especially if you're among those that consider this year's Nexus to be better sized for giants than humans. The device still sells for roughly half a grand, but if you're willing to pick up a refurbished model, you can current get one for just $250 on eBay.
These units are unlocked AT&T models, so you're free to take them to your GSM carrier of choice. Read More
The Chromecast is cheap. But even when something only costs $35, it's still nice to be able to cut that price in half. Okay, Groupon's offer isn't actually 50% off, but it's close. For the next five days (or until supplies run out), you can get a Chromecast for just $20.
These are refurbished units, but in the case of Google's streaming stick, that really doesn't matter. Even if it's scratched, it's going in the back of a TV where you will never see it again. Read More
Let's get something out of the way right from the start. The LG G Pad 7.0 isn't a particularly exciting piece of hardware. It's powered by a Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. That 7-inch display only provides 1280 by 800 pixels. On the software front, you're looking at Android 4.4.
But if you turn your eyes towards Woot, you will see that the site is offering a refurbished LG G Pad 7.0 LTE for only $89.99. Read More
The HTC One M9 is official. It's coming. The big carriers will offer it. We have a date.
Sounds like the perfect time to buy a refurbished HTC One M8.
Unless the M9's 20MP camera is a must-have, the M8 can serve you fine. And instead of spending over half a grand on the device, you can pick one up for $289.99. You even get your choice of gray, silver, and gold. 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
Update, January 7th: the eBay vendor for this listing has added new stock and lowered the price to $349.99. That's a steal for one of last year's best devices. Grab it while you can.
If you want a high-end phone for a GSM network, this deal will probably beat anything you're likely to find on Black Friday. Right now one eBay seller is unloading a refurbished AT&T version of the HTC One M8 for just $379.99, almost $300 off of the retail off-contract price and a solid eighty bucks cheaper than our previous best One M8 deal.

As a "new" company that caters almost exclusively to technology enthusiasts, OnePlus has been under the microscope ever since it announced its One flagship phone... with no small amount of criticism coming from this very website. But a string of recent posts on the official OnePlus forums prompted a response from the company's social team. Basically, customers accused OnePlus of shipping refurbished One phones and claiming they were new, a practice that isn't unheard of from consumer goods manufacturers and retailers of all sizes.

There are a lot of good options in the mid-sized tablet range, and if you're a fan of Samsung's designs, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is among the best. Right now you can grab a refurbished black model off of eBay for $199.99, a full $200 off of the retail price. Of course, it's not quite the latest model (that would be the Galaxy Tab S, with its AMOLED screen), so most retailers have it discounted, but it's still a fantastic deal. Read More
It won't be long now until the 2013 Nexus 7 is no longer Google's newest tablet. Depending on who you are, that makes now the best or worst time to buy one. If you don't care about having the latest stuff and would rather save some bucks, then this is a good time to do precisely that. Groupon has a refurbished version of the 32GB Nexus 7 with LTE (otherwise known as the expensive one) marked down to just $199.99. Read More
