The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is really the only game in town when it comes to a 2015 flagship with a stylus, but the US carriers want so much coin for it—over $700 most places. You can get a brand new unlocked Note 5 on eBay right now for
$590. That's a much better deal.
Update 9/28/15: Now back in stock and $10 cheaper at $579.99 in this new listing.
Remember Milk Video? No, it's not a special Internet repository of all those Got Milk ads, it's Samsung's device-exclusive video arm of the Milk Music service. And now it's not long for this world.

Thank you for using Samsung Milk Video. While we remain committed to providing premium entertainment services, we have decided to end support for the Samsung Milk Video app as of November 20, 2015.
To continue enjoying streaming entertainment, please use the Samsung Milk Music app available at:http://smsng.us/1L4Zqd3

Perhaps the most relevant item confirmed by the leak, there's just 2GB of RAM in the 5X as previously rumored. Read More
It's Nexus Eve Day, and let's be honest, nobody is getting any work done because we're reading all of the exciting news about tomorrow's announcements. Your wish list may already be written and tucked beneath your pillow waiting for St. Matias to give it a look. While we await the big event, Google actually has some of its own official news to share today. As it turns out, Google is raising the maximum apk file size on the Play Store from 50 MB to 100 MB.
The change is largely a formality since the file size restriction is an artificial cap. Read More
