The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge may not be the hottest phones on the block anymore (that title goes to the Note7, both literally and figuratively), but they're still excellent smartphones. They've been highly rated by almost everyone who's touched them, including David (which, if you know David, is pretty rare). Now, you can pick up the desirable US unlocked (SM-G93xU) Galaxy S7 and S7 edge for just $369.99 and $429.99, respectively, from Best Buy. Read More
Do you want a Moto X Pure Edition? Were you waiting for a great deal to grab it? Now is the time and you better act fast. B&H is discounting the 32GB Moto X Pure by $150 from $399.99 to $249.99 and adding a couple of freebies to boot. You get a Bluetooth selfie stick, which you can always give to someone as a gift if you don't need it, and a 32GB MicroSD card, which is a nice addition on top of the 32GB of internal memory. The X Pure supports adoptable storage, so this doubles your phone's capacity.
If you're wondering how good of a deal this is, I can say that the 16GB was down to $239.99 last month and we thought that was a nice discount, and two months ago the 32GB was discounted to 349.99 which we also liked. Read More
When Ryan looked at the Xperia X Performance last month, his verdict was that it had a nice display, decent specs, but deal breakers like the lack of a fingerprint scanner and the poor camera left a sour taste in his mouth. That was nothing though compared to the shock of the price of the phone. $700. There are many, many better phones selling for that much and even less, so Sony's value proposition just seems ridiculous.
At a discounted price though, you could make a case for the X Performance. It does have a nice display after all, a solid build, a Snapdragon 820, IP68 water resistance (a bit of a rare feat still), 3GB of RAM, and if the camera's software is tweaked, it could yield good photos. Read More
Hey there, lover of all things Android. I see you lurking in the shadows waiting for a moment to pounce on a deal and snatch it before it's too late. You want a Nexus phone because #NexusMasterrace or whatever y'all are calling it now, but you can't afford to pay too much: there are all those cool new Nexuses coming soon, and Google Home, and maybe new Cast speakers and TVs, and goodness knows what else...
For you, just for you, we have a little deal that can turn your frowny emoji face into a wide-grinned emoji face. Read More
Some OEMs thrive on selling unlocked phones, but Samsung has always been very chummy with carriers as a way to move its phones in the US. That has traditionally meant unlocked versions of the Galaxy phones on sale in the US were actually imported international models. Today, Samsung is announcing an unlocked version of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge for the US, and it'll work on virtually all carriers. Read More
Look, I'm not going to try to convince you that the Galaxy S7 Edge is a good phone. If you're reading this, then you're already interested in this kick-ass device, which I personally think nears perfection and can easily fill most people's needs in a high-end smartphone.
The S7 Edge also comes in a dual-SIM variant that's usually more expensive, and harder to find if you want it unlocked in the US. But if this is what you're looking for then you should stop and check out this eBay deal. A highly rated seller is offering the unlocked S7 Edge Duos 32GB for $599.99 today. Read More
The brand-spankin'-new LG G5 is certainly interesting, but its modular accessory system hasn't won everyone over, including David Ruddock in his full review. If you still want a new phone but would prefer to return to a simpler time when a leather back plate was the gimmick of the year, one eBay vendor is selling last year's model at a significant discount. The G4, with 32GB of storage and an upgraded (and somewhat divisive) black leather back, is just $274.99.
The Galaxy S7 Edge is the current highlight of Samsung's smartphone lineup... and boy, don't they know it. The 32GB version of the phone goes for approximately $800 unlocked in the US, well above the non-Edge version of the S7 and considerably more expensive than more budget-minded flagships like the Nexus 6P or the Moto X. But that doesn't mean you're out of luck when it comes to deal hunting. Right now an eBay vendor is offering the international, unlocked, dual-SIM version of the S7 Edge for just $669.99 . Silver, gold, and black models are available.
Patience is a virtue, especially when it comes to the fickle world of yearly hardware upgrades. If you're willing to wait a bit for that fancy new phone, you can save an insane amount of money. For example, a brand new version of 2014's flagship Samsung phone, still only a year and a half old, can now be had for less than half of its original price. And from two different vendors, no less!
