[Deal Alert] Xperia X 32GB (F5121) $250 at Amazon and B&H

I've seen that there are two general camps when it comes to phones these days: those who want something big, and those who don't. For the latter, Sony has become a bit of a savior by continuing to make decent phones in a small form-factor. If you're part of that camp and you've been waiting for a deal on a recent Sony phone, that time has arrived. B&H and Amazon have the Xperia X for $250. That'll get you a nice 5" display and decent specs for a reasonable price.

Samsung's new parental control app Marshmallow has nothing to do with Android Marshmallow

Samsung just launched an app late last night for parents to keep track of their children's smartphone usage, but this one has an interesting twist.

They set their own limits, and the app rewards their self-control and independence. That's actually pretty awesome.
