Samsung has a hit on its hands with the Galaxy S6. (That's what a complete redesign and finally giving people what they've been wanting for years will do for a brand.) So if in-country rival LG didn't have a fight on its hands before the latest round of flagships was released, it definitely does now.
Samsung's top-of-the-line Galaxy Tab S series is legitimately awesome, but the 8.4 and 10.5-inch models are also considerably more expensive than their competitors. For a short time Samsung is discounting both of them by $100 on its official online store. The base 16GB Wi-Fi models of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 are now $299.99 and 399.99, respectively, a sale price that's reportedly effective through Saturday, April 11th.
The Sony Smartwatch 3 is one of the most compelling options among currently available Android Wear devices. Its comfort, water resistant body, great outdoor visibility, and inclusion of features such as GPS and NFC set it apart as the best Android Wear option for fitness and outdoor enthusiasts.
If the compelling features weren't enough to entice you before, a new low price may increase the watch's attraction. The SW3 is currently available on Ebay Daily Deals for just $169.99.
The market for cheap, unlocked smartphones in the US is starting to grow considerably, and with that growth comes more and more competition in the sub-$200 space. While Huawei is well-known abroad for its affordable handsets, the Chinese OEM hasn't really made a big push with them here in America previously. A new listing on Amazon suggests that's about to change.
While "Expo" appears in the product name for the listing, the name "SnapTo" is used in all the marketing promo images on the page, so we're pretty sure SnapTo will be the retail name of the device.
So maybe the Galaxy S6 doesn't strike your fancy because of the non-removable battery or lack of a microSD card slot. No problem—you can pick up an unlocked Galaxy Note 4 right now on eBay for a relative pittance of $470.
We more or less knew that LG's April 28th event was going to be for the G4, but now the Korean OEM has come out and said it. The G4 will be revealed in just a few short weeks, but that's almost all we know.
LG's Android UI started off as a bad copy of TouchWiz back in the Gingerbread days, but more recently it's evolved into its own thing. That thing is not always good, but it's not horrendous either. LG has just posted a video preview of the LG UX 4.0, which will probably be used on the G4, and you can suffer through it watch it below.
