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
When built-in storage just isn't enough, you can always pop in a microSD card. Well, unless you have a Nexus 6... or the new Galaxy S6... or a Moto X... or—okay look, that's not the point. There are still some phones that support microSD cards and here's a 64GB card that's mega-cheap. Alright?
ZeroLemon makes these pretty nifty portable battery packs that you can recharge (albeit very slowly) using the large solar panel on top. The company also produces some rather ridiculous-looking extended battery cases that, in addition to providing your device with a metric ton of power, turns it into a plastic brick. Read More
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
Target's Cartwheel app serves as a way for the company to offer discounts and get you into its stores. Today you can get the LG G Watch for 50% off. Since the retailer is selling the smartwatch for $160, that brings the price down to $80.
This offer is only valid in stores, as Target isn't even selling the G Watch online. You must sign up to redeem the coupon and then scan the Cartwheel barcode at the register. Read More
The music of my parents generation didn't rely on digital bass tracks or Auto-Tuning to craft a hit song. Instead, the artists of the seventies and eighties rocked out using the tools they had – electric guitars, drum sets, sweet vocals, and a whole lot of hair. Two great creators of music from that haira... I mean era, were Meat Loaf and Toto. Today, the very best of albums from both artists are available free on Google Play with each featuring more than a dozen songs. The albums normally would ring up to about twelve bucks apiece, so it's a pretty nice gift from Google. Read More
There's a new Humble Mobile Bundle already up and running today, and it's another developer tie-in like the previous Sega and Crescent Moon deals. This time it's Tin man Games, which is the developer of all those neat gamebook adventures. You can get as many as 10 of these game right now with more on the way.
Amazon's Fire HD line of tablets aren't geared for hardcore Android enthusiasts. They don't come with the Play Store. They don't offer Google apps. And they don't come with the Google Now Launcher or any of that relatively new material design. But they are pretty good at letting you consume media.
The Fire HD 7 is a low to mid-range offering with a rather mediocre 1280 by 800 display. But today you can get it for $60 off, which isn't all that much dough to cough up for the hardware. Read More
Does your home have a lot of mobile devices? I mean a lot of them? Maybe you're a modern-day Brady Bunch, and every adult and kid has a phone, tablet, smartwatch, and external battery? Or alternately, do you run a bar or work for a gadget blog? Then you'll probably be able to find a use for the Yubi Universal USB Family Charging Tower Station With Surge And Overload Protection For... Read More
Are you a new owner of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and have expandable storage withdrawal?

Of course, the main negative to a microUSB device would be the difficulty getting files onto it, but there's an easy way to deal with that: this one also has a standard USB plugin. Read More
