ZeroLemon hates empty smartphone batteries. That awesome $700 mix of processors and screens and lenses can't ever be a useless piece of metal dead weight in your pocket, it has to be used throughout the day regardless of whether or not you're on a long road trip, hiking in the wilderness, or your roommates have taken up all the charging plugs in the house.
Now ZeroLemon is ready to bring its hammer down on empty batteries on the latest Samsung flagships: the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5. Both of its new models include a 3,500mAh battery so they should be enough to charge these phones once, and they come with a black TPU case so you can simply slide your phone in and forget about dangling wires and disconnecting battery packs.

Google updated its support pages with an interesting item recently. Down at the bottom of the gift card page, is a US-only option called "Google Play credit gifts." And sure enough, a new option to send a gift has popped up in the web Play Store. So, just in time for the holidays, you can give the gift of Google Play via email. Read More
The Asus ZenFone 2 is one of the better phones to arrive this year for under $300, delivering 4GB of RAM before the competition. But it had an Intel processor. Folks looking for a more standard Qualcomm processor can look to the ZenFone 2 Lazer. Read More
Yesterday, CyanogenMod announced the first wave of devices supporting CyanogenMod 13 (CM13) — the latest version of CyanogenMod based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The range of devices was reasonably small, containing just seven entries, but CyanogenMod promised they were working hard to get that list to expand rapidly.
It turns out they weren't kidding. Barely 24 hours later, the first CM13 nightly builds for the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P (codenamed 'bullhead' and 'angler,' respectively) have popped up on CyanogenMod's download page.
As always, nightly builds (and the first batch of them in particular) are not designed to be very stable, and there's no guarantee that everything will work properly. Read More
Looking for some big deals on big expandable storage? For those in the US, Amazon has some of the lowest prices we've ever seen on Samsung branded MicroSD cards, and no one has to stand outside in the cold to get them. At the time of writing the 128GB EVO MicroSDXC card is just $44.99, a stunning price for a capacity that would have cost $200 or more a few years ago. Read More
Back in July, we went hands on with some Tronsmart Quick Charge 2.0 chargers, which turned out to provide some of the best value in third-party chargers on the market today. We also gave away 50 units back then, so several of you guys got to see what these chargers were all about for yourselves.
Since then, Tronsmart has released a couple of new products (and updated some of the others), including an absolutely beastly new 5-port desktop charger called the Titan. Now, we've seen 5-port chargers before, so that's not what makes Titan such a beast — it's the fact that all five ports offer Quick Charge 2.0 as well as VoltIQ technology. Read More
Some of the most advanced games on Android are exclusive to the SHIELD devices, but even if you do have one of those, the best games are $5-10 each. Not today—a number of SHIELD games are on sale for 50% off. Time for a pre-Black Friday shopping spree? Read More
Part of the joy of picking up an Android Wear device is that you don't just get to be excited about over-the-air updates for your phone and tablet, you also get to receive them on your watch as well. Huawei is pushing out one now. It's going out in waves, but that means some wearers should receive the update right away. You may have to check for it manually. Read More
The Moto X is the most customizable smartphone on the market—you can already get various colors, leathers, and wood panels, but now there are limited edition devices with designs by Jonathan Adler. I'm not going to pretend I know who he is, but apparently he's quite popular with people whose sense of interior design goes beyond video game posters. Read More
