Archos Introduces Two New Budget-Friendly Android 5.1 Lollipop Phones: The Diamond S And The 50e Helium

The French brand Archos is getting ready to announce two new smartphones at IFA 2015. Both follow the company's footsteps in pushing prices down while maintaining an interesting proposition in terms of value, hardware specifications, and build quality.

First is the Diamond S, a 5" 720p Super AMOLED smartphone with a flat glass finish topped with Gorilla Glass 3. It has all the makings of a smartphone you can get for your parent or recommend to your non-techie friends, thanks to acceptable internal storage (16GB) and RAM (2GB). The octa-core processor is no slouch either, the cameras are 8MP at the front and 16MP on the back, and there's a multitude of connectivity options with 4G and dual-SIMs.

[Deal Alert] Get An Asus ZenWatch For $124 On Newegg After Coupon Code, Visa Checkout, And Mail-In Rebate

The Asus ZenWatch never had a moment where it was wildly hailed as the most luxurious Android Wear watch, but it was still a relatively stylish device. Was it worth $200? That depends on who's answering. But for those who said no, here's a way to make the smartwatch more compelling—but you're going to have to jump through some hoops.

First, head to Newegg. There you will see the ZenWatch reduced down to $150 (the same price offered at Amazon). Add it to your cart and enter the coupon code VCO2015BTS. It will save you $10, but only if you complete your purchase using Visa Checkout.

Google Map Maker Now Available In The U.S. And 50 Other Countries

This last spring, a couple of trolls took to Google Map Maker and created a park that looked like a bugdroid peeing on an Apple logo. Google's reaction to this was removing the ability to make edits using Map Maker altogether, and the community was told that the feature would be added in at a later time. A couple of weeks ago the service came back to life in six countries: Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, India, the Philippines, and Ukraine. Notably missing from this list is the United States. Well as of yesterday, the USA and 44 other countries were added to the countries open to edits.

These Leaked Photos Sure Look Like Verizon's 'DROID Maxx 2,' AKA The Only Moto X Play We're Getting In The US

Just last weekend we heard some rather convincing (but unconfirmed) rumors that the reason the Moto X Play was conspicuously absent from Motorola's US store was that Verizon's long-standing relationship with the manufacturer would result in an exclusive phone. Today we've been sent some photos that look like the real deal: a mid-range phone that mostly matches the Moto X Play, but with Verizon and DROID branding. Say hello to the Motorola XT1565, presumably coming to market as the DROID Maxx 2.
