For many power users, 16GB just doesn't cut it any more, especially when the world's leading smartphone manufacturer insists upon using a third of that for its customized Android build. Combine that with a still-outrageous premium for those few models that of phones that include extra storage, and you've got a recipe for frustration. But the Galaxy S4 situation just got a little less rage-inducing, at least if you're a prospective Verizon customer: both Amazon Wireless and WireFly have dropped the 32GB version of the Galaxy S4 to $199.99 on-contract.

Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds.

Today we've got a sci-fi tower defense game, a unique endless runner, a game in which many, many virtual hamsters are maimed, a shmup starring Nikola Tesla, and a digital translation of a popular card game.

If you're on The Now Network and looking for a new phone, you'd be hard-pressed to find one better than the Galaxy S4 (with one exception, depending on your personal preference). And in keeping with their tradition of rock-bottom prices at surprisingly fast intervals, Amazon Wireless is now offering the 16GB model for just $99.99 on-contract, to both new customers and existing subscribers adding a line.
Activation is free for new Sprint customers, as is two-day shipping (even without an Amazon Prime account). Read More
We've already seen plenty of HTC's One Mini for AT&T in the flesh, but a blurrycam can only go so far. Tonight, we've got one more treat – a crisp, clear press shot of the device.
While the shot doesn't hold much more information than what we already saw in our exclusive photos recently, it's interesting that the Beats Audio logo isn't sporting its typical red brand color (though the same is true for the press shots that have been released). Read More
Update: Director of Product Management for Google Wallet Peter Hazlehurst dropped by our comments section below to confirm that Wallet is not compatible with the new Nexus 7 for the same reason as the HTC One Play Edition – the device does not carry a secure element, the small bit of hardware required to store encrypted card credentials on a device. This is required in order for Wallet to function, well, securely. Read More
Well, that didn't take long. TeamWin has just dropped a new version of its TWRP custom recovery designed specifically for the Flo – the new Nexus 7. As usual, it's a fairly simple procedure with a Nexus device to get a custom recovery running, which allows you to flash root. The Android 4.3 SuperSU file is already out there, so we're ready to go.
Welcome to the roundup of the best new Android applications, games, and live wallpapers that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous 2 weeks or so.

Update: The 32GB white version is on sale at Sam's Club for just $99 with free shipping, arguably an even better deal, right here. Thanks, Amy!
Far be it from me to tell you whether or not you should buy an $89 tablet, but it is my job to tell you there is such a thing - thanks to a hefty price cut from Amazon on the gray version of the ASUS MeMO Pad 7. Read More
Buying a laptop was a necessity, and so was that phone. Maybe you need didn't need the tablet, but you took a chance on it anyway, and it's been pretty fun. The e-reader was a tad pricy, but it's since made reading so much less of a hassle. All of those devices have crappy speakers, though, so a set of portable Bluetooth speakers was a must. We understand. We also understand how much of a pain it can be charging all those devices, and sometimes there simply aren't enough outlets within walking distance. Read More
Update 2: Both models are now out of stock on Staples.com - bummer!
Update: The 16GB version is now out of stock on Staples.com, but the 32GB model is still going strong.
Looking to pick up that brand-new Nexus 7 on the cheap? I guess cheap is a relative term, but this Staples deal will certainly make acquiring Google's newest slate cheaper, slashing $30 off your total before taxes. Read More
