Android Wear is not everyone's thing. I splurged for a Huawei Watch with a mesh link earlier today when Amazon's $100 discount kicked off, but you may not like the look of the Hwatch or the way Android Wear works. Or you might be invested in Samsung's ecosystem and have more faith in the way they handle their wearable's platform. After all, it's your wrist, you can wear whatever you want on it.
In that case, you might want to head to Adorama today. I know, I know, it's not Amazon, and you'll have to create an account if you never shopped there, and do all of that unnecessary work while you're still under the influence of a glucose coma from your meal, but it might be worth the effort of working a few more minutes.

It's Black Friday, and deals are popping up everywhere like crazy. The Nexus 9 saw its price slashed by a whopping $200 and the brand-new Nexus 5X is being sold at just $299 on the Google Store and B&H. But while those deals are definitely great and all, nothing beats free.
If you own a Chromecast, free is exactly what you can get. Right now, you can redeem 90 days of Spotify Premium for precisely zero dollars and zero cents. We're not entirely sure in which countries this offer applies, since Google only mentions the US, Puerto Rico, and Malaysia in their support page, but I can definitely confirm that it also works in Portugal, so there's a very good chance you'll be able to redeem it in many of the almost 60 countries where Spotify is available.

Among our favorite wired headphone brands, Audio Technica sits conveniently toward the top of the list, and we're not alone in thinking that. Amazon customers and people who know more about sound and audio signatures than me like and recommend them as well. If you've been wanting to grab a pair for a while or you just want to supplement your headphone collection with a relatively cheap but good addition, today's your day.
Amazon has the Audio Technica ATH-M40X at an all-time low. According to Camelx3, these usually retail around the $99 mark, and very rarely dip below the $80 line. At $67, they might be getting close to impulse-buy territory, especially since they're almost as cheap as the M30X (which are around $54 now). Read More
If it feels like the entire AndroidPolice site has turned into a ticker of deal alerts, don't worry. It's Black Friday in the United States and that means that everyone is just busy digesting Thanksgiving's meal and browsing for anything and everything that they can save money on. Thankfully, you don't have to live in the US to benefit from this dbrand deal, and as a bonus you might actually get a trip to Canada.
dbrand makes skins for different models of smartphones, tablets, and computers. They're good quality, they completely change the look of your device, and they're very customizable. Also, they ship to the US and internationally. dbrand has a 30% off site-wide on all of its skins, so you can pimp up that new Nexus 5X or 6P, revive your battered Nexus 6, add a touch of class to your Pebble Watch, and more.

Google is getting into the annual celebration of the American consumer, known as Black Friday, with a plethora of deep discounts. I'd love to apply my normal flair and lame jokes to this article, but this is Black Friday and I ain't got no time for that!
So here's the breakdown.
You probably wouldn't guess it if you live in the United States or Europe, but Huawei is actually a pretty big brand in Asia. In China, the national manufacturer controlled 15.7 percent of the smartphone market share in Q2 2015 — more than either Apple or Samsung and just shy of Xiaomi's 15.9 percent. This alone accounts for a significant part of why it's the third largest smartphone vendor in the world, with that only set to improve as Huawei expands into more countries across Europe and the Americas.
The newly announced Mate 8 is the flagship Huawei hopes will lead that expansion, and is the successor to last year's Ascend Mate 7, on which Google based the Nexus 6P. Read More
The Huawei Watch is probably the best overall Android Wear device you can get right now, but it starts at a whopping $350. To make the purchase a little less painful, Huawei is dropping the price on Black Friday by as much as $100 on some models of the watch. The savings continue for all of Cyber Monday week, but Black Friday has the biggest savings. Read More
Every Black Friday weekend there seems to be one deal that draws my attention by shining brighter than all the other flickering lights of lesser bargains floating around the dark confines of the internet. This year, this is the deal that burns brightest in my eyes.
A deal involving one of the hottest Android phones of the year, a killer price, a bonus gift card, no sales tax for most buyers, and free shipping make for the magic pentacta (it's like a trifecta but with five things. Read More

Something about Thanksgiving seems to do weird things to retailers every year. They drop their prices and their customers show up in the dead of the night acting like werewolves during a full moon. Personally, I think the stuffing is to blame. I mean, have you ever taken a close look at that stuff? It already looks like leftovers the first time you serve it.
Anyways, Walmart seems to have eaten a lot of stuffing, because they have all kinds of deals going on. Read More
