The G4 is easily the best LG smartphone available at the moment, and if you're particularly fond of the leather back option or of manual camera controls, it may be the best choice on the market. We've seen some significant discounts on the phone before, but one eBay vendor has the best price yet: $339.95 for a new, unlocked GSM model. Depending on where you buy from, that represents a discount of $100 to 300 or more off of the retail price.
This particular model appears to be the international LTE version, and the description says that it supports LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 17, and 25. Read More
If you're an American and you've heard the tongue-twisting country music ballad "I've Been Everywhere," odds are that you've heard the most popular version from Johnny Cash, or perhaps the earlier version by the unequaled Hank Snow. There have been dozens of adaptations of the song, for everywhere from Texas to Singapore. But the original was written by Geoff Mack way back in 1959 and popularized by Lucky Starr, and the first set of lyrics was exclusively tailored to cities, towns, and regions in Australia. The song featured such multi-syllabic municipalities as Megalong, Tamborine, Woodenbong, and Grong Grong. Read More
HTC did not have a profitable 2015, but the company hopes the upcoming M10 will be able to turn its fortunes around. According to Venture Beat, the HTC Perfume (believed to be called M10 at launch) has the best specs HTC has ever packed into a phone—a top-of-the-line Snapdragon chip, tons of RAM, a fingerprint scanner, improved UltraPixel camera, and a screen to rival Samsung.

Starting today, the OnePlus X will no longer require an invite for purchase. Or, as any other manufacturer would say, the phone is now (actually) available. Yes, this is a very OnePlus-specific reason to get excited, but here we are nonetheless. Read More
Samsung has a giant tablet for grownups, but it doesn't seem to be a hit. The Nabi Big Tab for kids is pretty popular, though. The 20-inch variant usually sells for $300, but it's on sale for $250 via eBay right now. The sale is good for a few days, but there is a limited supply and a few hundred have already sold. Read More
Remember when everyone was up in arms because the Nexus 6P and 5X were so expensive outside North America? It turns out that Google has decided to quietly fix that, at least in some parts of the world. On the Google Store, the Nexus 5X, which initially launched for €479 and then came down to €429 in the Eurozone, is now starting at just €349, while the Nexus 6P, priced at €649 back in September, now begins at €549. The prices in Italy are still €50 more expensive for every model than the rest of the Eurozone, and the price increments for each storage tier are the same as before. Read More
When a custom ROM pops up for a device that already has support, it's like watching another politician join an election. You have two options before you, which way do you go? Are you a pragmatist, ideologically driven, or someone who just wants to tinker around?
But when a phone has been neglected for years, the ROM feels more like a savior. For the Huawei Ascend Mate 2, CyanogenMod has stepped into that role. Read More
Cars. Houses. Contracted electronics. These are items for which the old "buy one, get one" scheme rarely works. But since T-Mobile has ostensibly given up cellular contracts, it makes a sort of sense... at least if you're buying phones for more than one person on the same plan. The carrier is now offering a buy one, get one 50% off discount on all versions of the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5, the LG G4, and the LG V10, as well as the latest two generations of iPhones.
All colors and capacities sold by T-Mobile are eligible, and you can purchase up to 12 phones at a time(!) and apply the discounts. Read More
