PNY Elite-X microSD cards on sale at Amazon: 256GB for $53, 128GB for $34

External storage is always a great option if you're looking at expanding your phone's internal memory or transferring data from one device to another. It's also usually cheaper than buying a handset with greater onboard capacity, and more convenient as you can keep it when switching phones. If you're looking at a new microSD card, PNY's well-rated high-speed products just hit an all-time low on Amazon, with some models costing 47% less than their MSRP.

The newest, fastest "app class" microSD cards are still not very good for apps

There are plenty of reasons to pick up a microSD card, should your phone support one. It can be a lot cheaper to get a phone with less storage and plan to add more. Media maniacs and data hoarders can also make use of the super cheap extra space. But if you think SanDisk's new A1 and A2-rated microSD cards are going to provide anywhere near the experience of your phone's built-in storage, think again.

[Deal Alert] Samsung 64GB and 128GB USB-C flash drives just $19.99 and $39.99 on Amazon ($10-12 off)

USB-C is the future, but as we're all slowly switching to the updated port, the change isn't without its inconveniences. Chief among them: all your old stuff isn't gonna work without dongles and adapters.

Why not just use it as an excuse to upgrade? That old 2GB drive you've been hanging onto isn't enough space anyway, and Amazon's just dropped the price on Samsung's 64GB ($19.99) and 128GB ($39.99) USB-C flash drives, bringing each to an all-time low.

[Update: Gone from Amazon] Deal Alert: Pick up a 64GB/4GB Moto G4 Plus for $200 at Amazon and B&H, the lowest price we've ever seen

The guys at Droid Life spotted a pretty great deal today in the form of the G4 Plus @ $200 over on B&H. While we were checking it out, we also noticed that it's the same price over at Amazon. Both B&H and Amazon might be claiming that this is a $100 off, but if you look at price histories on Amazon and most other retailers, it's closer to a $60 savings. Nonetheless, that's almost a quarter off, making it a pretty nice price for the phone. And, by $20, the lowest price we've ever seen for it.

Amazon Releases A 64GB Version Of The Fire 10 HD Tablet With A New Aluminum Body For $290

Depending on who you ask, Amazon's Fire series might just be the most popular Android tablets on the planet. They're certainly up there, thanks to an extremely low entry price and some pretty decent media tie-ins with Amazon's various platforms, the lack of Google Play access notwithstanding. The value at the high end of the range isn't bad either, and Amazon just made it a little better: the big daddy Fire 10 HD now has a 64GB option, and it's available for under $300.

[Deal Alert] Lexar's MicroSDXC Cards Are On Sale On Amazon: 128GB For $43.99, 64GB For $24.99

Are MicroSD cards cheap nowadays or what? I remember buying my first 128MB (that's MEGAbytes) card sometime in 2005 and here we are talking about affordable 128GB cards in 2016! If you're good at math, you'd know that we multiplied the storage by a thousand and something and we're still somewhere in the same price ballpark. Crazy.

This Lexar 128GB is a Class 10 card that can read files at up to 95MB/s and write at up to 20MB/s. It comes with a USB 3.0 reader too so you can transfer your files quickly to a computer. It's using the old packaging though, which apparently makes it ripe for discounts.

[Deal Alert] The 32GB Motorola Nexus 6 Is Just $250 On Amazon, $300 For 64GB Version

We've been seeing some fantastic prices on last year's Nexus phone leading up to and following the launch of the 2015 devices. This is almost the cheapest yet: $249.99 gets you the Nexus 6, which is still very much a powerful and desirable phone, from Amazon. This is a new device, with the stock 32GB of storage and either the blue or white color option, plus a standard warranty. It's a full $400 off of the retail price at which the Nexus 6 launched a little over a year ago.

If you need a little more storage, the 64GB model is also available at $299.99, though at the moment it's only being sold in the white version.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge 64GB International Unlocked G925F Variant Is Down To $549.99 On Ebay

Remember the exorbitant amount of casheesh that Samsung wanted for its Galaxy S6 Edge less than half a year ago? Yeah, that's no more. As is the case with most flagships, if you're patient enough to wait for prices to drop, they inevitably will and to a point where you could actually consider forking that much money for them.

A few weeks ago, we spotted the 32GB S6 Edge down at $499, and now we're seeing the 64GB version at an equally awesome discount. How awesome? $549.99. That's how much the eBay seller wants for the G925F model, which is the international unlocked variant of the phone.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Chopped Another $150 Off The Nexus 6: 32GB Is Now $350, 64GB Is Now $400

Deal hunters, get an early start on this one. Amazon's US store has slashed the unlocked Nexus 6 price by another $150 (in addition to the $150 price cut a few months ago). That means a full $300 off of both models: the standard 32GB version is now $349.99, and the 64GB version is $399.99. This is a fantastic deal on an unlocked phone, and one that still keeps up with most of the 2015 flagships. Get your order in quickly, because at this price stock is going to disappear very soon.

Remember, the US version of the Nexus 6 works with all four major carriers (including Sprint and Verizon), most GSM MVNO carriers, and Google's own Fi.
