It seems to be a growing trend among manufacturers to show off the process behind creating their products. Today, Samsung joined the ranks, bringing us an inside look of the stress test process that the company's moneymaker undergoes. To ensure that every Galaxy S III can stand up to all the punishment you can throw at it, there are a number of machines that attempt to scratch, crack, or soak the handset to see how well it can hold up.

Do you have 13 minutes to kill? Is the Galaxy Camera something that might interest you? Then you may as well watch this 13-minute long video Samsung posted about it. It'll tell you stuff. Stuff about the Galaxy Camera. Personally, I like it with a glass of warm milk before bed, but we thought we'd share it, as the Galaxy Camera's features are laid out quite completely and thoroughly. If you can survive the narration. Read More
If you're Cyber Monday shopping for a new phone and intend on ditching the "traditional" carrier for a much more affordable pay-as-you-go plan, Virgin Mobile may be a good place to start looking. For today only, the Sprint subsidiary has knocked $100 off three of its most popular phones: the HTC EVO V 4G is now $150, the Samsung Galaxy Reverb is $100, and the HTC One V can be scored for just $50.

If you're like many would-be customers still searching high and low for a Nexus 4, you're likely ready to pounce on any source that's got the device at a price lower than the astronomical offerings over on eBay.
Daily Steals Mobile, looking to end your Nexus 4 woes, is selling the 16GB version, unlocked, for $499 with free shipping. That's higher than the Play Store's price for the same device, but on par with T-Mobile's off-contract price. Read More
Update: The price of the LG Intuition on Amazon has been dropped to a penny, a full $150 less than you'd pay at Verizon. We doubt this deal will last long, so if you're in the market for one (why?), now's the time to buy.
Maybe you like the whole phablet idea. Maybe the thought of a handset with an aspect ratio which rivals that of your old CRT monitor sounds like a good thing to you. Read More
When the Droid DNA was first announced, we were all surprised to find that the bootloader was unlockable at HTCdev.com. Because of this, the device actually got root, recovery, and custom kernel days before the official release. Unfortunately, by the time the device became available in retail channels, Verizon pulled the plug and it was no longer unlocked through official means.
Thankfully, there's another way (isn't there always?). The softmod below will effectively change the carrier information, allowing it to once again be unlocked via HTC's official tool. Read More
A winner has been selected. Congrats to April!
You didn't think we'd miss a chance to give something away on this day of all things cheap, did you? Of course not. So we've teamed up with AT&T to give you a little Black Friday promotion of our own - in the form of a free Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with LTE.
The Tab 2 10.1 LTE is a lot like its Wi-Fi sibling, though it's packing a much quicker Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, along with the aforementioned LTE support for the AT&T network. Read More
It's a deal kind of day (it's Black Friday, after all), and we've got another one to add to your list: the unlocked GSM version of the Galaxy Note II is just $550 on eBay Daily Deals, with free shipping included.
Now remember - this particular variant of the Note II has no LTE support on board, just good 'ol HSPA+. Still, this is a great deal on an already pricey phone - $30 less than the lowest price we've seen. Read More
Update: The deal appears to be over, with a final count of 2000 Nexus 7's sold, which is quite a lot for an eBay Daily Deal. We're betting on similar deals popping up in the weeks before Christmas, so we'll be sure to keep an eye out.
eBay Daily Deals has an absolutely fantastic deal going on right now, and you better be quick if you want in on the action. Read More
The word "unredacted" is experiencing quite a spike in usage this morning, on news that HTC and Apple are being required to produce the full, uncut version of their patent licensing agreement for use by Samsung's legal counsel. The document in question, which had previously been provided sans 33 words (some of which were, presumably, numbers), was requested by Samsung last week for the purpose of arguing against Apple's post-trial motions for permanent injunctions against infringing Samsung products.
