Xiaomi's Hugo Barra makes dubious claim that Xiaomi isn't hurt by company's declining smartphone sales

In an interview with Reuters, Xiaomi's Hugo Barra addressed a question that seems to be one the company has managed to avoid to date: its declining smartphone sales. For all the hype Xiaomi has generated over the last few years, it has recently experienced a sudden and dramatic shift in sales figures - and not in the right direction. In Q1 2016, Xiaomi's handset sales were estimated to be down 25% over the previous year, versus a global smartphone shipment decline of just 0.1%. They declined a further 38% in Q2 2016. In Q3, its Chinese domestic sales have dropped an alleged 45%.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Fire tablets are as low as $33.33 ($16.66-$30 off)

Want a cheap tablet to keep around the house, let the kids play with, maybe browse some sites on, play a few non-resource intense games, and generally use sporadically for small tasks? Amazon's Fire tablet should definitely be on top of your list. It comes in a couple of variants: the Fire Tablet 7 is the cheapest with a 7" 1024x600 display and a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor with 8 or 16GB of storage, whereas the Fire HD 8 has an 8" 1280x800 display and keeps the same processor but ups the storage to 16 or 32GB. There's also a Kids Edition of the Fire Tablet 7 that comes with a kid-proof case to protect it from damage.

[Deal Alert] Get Huawei's Honor 8 for $289.99 ($110 off) with a bunch of free stuff ($25 gift card, cases, earphones, and more) from Newegg

The Honor 8 suffers an affliction that many Chinese phones are prone to: excellent hardware let down by poorly-made software. However, thanks to a beta of EMUI 5 that supposedly improves the software a bunch, the phone may be worth considering now - especially with this Black Friday deal. If a $110 discount on both the 32GB and 64GB models wasn't enough, Newegg is also throwing in the most amount of things I've ever seen bundled with a phone.

[Update: free battery, charging cradle, and CAM Plus] Deal Alert: Get an unlocked LG G5 for just $399.99 from Amazon and Newegg ($250 off)

The LG G5 is one of the odder phones that came out in 2016; its "Friends" module integration was a complete failure, its build quality is lackluster, and it hasn't sold particularly well. It's obviously not the best smartphone on the market, but it's still a pretty decent one - one that you can now pick up in an unlocked variation for just $399.99 from Amazon.

The Chromecast is well-loved, and for good reason - it's so cheap, yet so useful.
