The HTC One M9 is HTC's new flagship, but there are still plenty of M8s floating around out there. Best Buy is looking to unload some stock today with a steep discount. You can get a new M8 for AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon for $299 off-contract. This deal is valid today only, or until supplies are exhausted.
The G Stylo is an odd beast: its huge screen and built-in stylus imply a competitor to the Galaxy Note series, but a collection of low-end hardware specs means that it's actually intended for bargain hunters or those on a tight budget. If you're looking to get an interesting phone on the equally cheap Boost Mobile MVNO, you've now got the G Stylo as a choice. Boost is selling the phone for $199.99 without a contract.
The Nexus 6 is a massive phone. It's also an expensive one. At $650 for the 32GB model, it costs more than getting two or three Nexus 5s off eBay. But T-Mobile is making things easier for folks enamored with Google's current smartphone by dropping the price down $100. Today you can buy the phone outright for $550 ($549 and 84 cents to be precise).
If monthly payments are more your speed, this discount turns twenty-four monthly payments of $27.08 into two years of $22.91.
The YotaPhone 2 and its predecessor have always intrigued me. They're probably the only significant departure in form factor available on the market right now that isn't different for the sake of being so, adds value, and has been relatively successful in its endeavor. After its European release last December, the YotaPhone 2 is coming back with a new color variant: white. And it looks striking if you ask me, especially with that new E Ink white theme where the old interface's colors are inverted.
Samsung was early to the recent smartwatch craze, but its products haven't exactly sold like gangbusters. While Samsung has made an Android Wear watch, it seems more interested in moving forward with its Tizen-based Gear platform, and the new Gear SDK offers a lot of detail about that next device. It'll be round, but that's not the only thing we know.
The watch will have a 1.18-inch round display with a resolution of 360x360.
Android One is on its way to Turkey. Today Google announced that it is partnering with General Mobile to bring out a faux-leather phone packed with stock Android and better specs than you would expect from Google's effort to grace the world with decent low-cost devices.
The General Mobile handset eschews low-res screens for a more impressive 5-inch HD display.
Android is a complex, multifaceted beast with a lot of moving parts that can break. In the grand scheme of things, this bug isn't a huge deal. It doesn't affect functionality, but it sure is annoying. Here's the deal: get an expanded notification with more than 7 elements on Android 5.1, and you'll probably see a line at the bottom that says, "@17041057."
