Visualizing furniture and products before buying them is one of the most reasonable uses of AR technology. Lots of buyers have difficulty imagining how things would fit in their home; when we were furnishing our apartment, we used tape on the floor to denote the limits of most things we had our eyes on before going back to purchase them because we needed to see how they'd fit. Augmented Reality makes this easier and better by putting the object there in front of you, and several retailers have used the technology before in their apps. Now so is Amazon.
After launching on iOS, the Amazon Shopping app on Android devices with ARCore (which expanded to more phones recently) will start showing a new AR View option when you tap the camera icon in the search box, letting you put furniture, toys, decor, appliances, electronics, and more in front of you so you can see how well they would fit in your space.

Looking for a car charger with a bit of extra smarts in it? Want to add the Alexa experience to your vehicle? If you answered yes to either or both of those, then Anker has a good deal for you. The Roav Viva car charger is $39.99 with a coupon on Amazon, saving you a nice $10.
In case you missed it, I actually reviewed the Roav Viva not too long ago. Overall, I liked what it had to offer, though my car's economical audio setup did not allow me to take full advantage of what the Viva could do. Read More

Sony's Xperia XZ1 really isn't a bad phone if you can get over its 1080p display. The starting price of $699.99 was a little ambitious, but we've seen a couple of price drops since then.

LG isn't doing so great in the flagship department these days, but the company's budget phones have usually been solid in recent years. The LG Q6 is one of the few mid-range devices with an 18:9 aspect ratio, and now you can get the Prime Exclusive version on Amazon for just $159.99 ($90 off the original Amazon price). Read More
Look, I checked the Amazon rating on these Jaybird Freedom 2 earphones and I know they don't seem to be the best in their category. But many of the reviews and opinions are based on their original $150 MSRP and the expectations that come from that. By comparison, the $82.95 price right now puts them in a different category and they might be worth a look, all things considered.
The Freedom 2 follow Jaybird's signature form factor: two earbuds linked by one wire that sits around your neck. They can be worn regularly or looped around your ear to come in from the upper side. Read More
A GoPro is great if you want to record some action shots in wide-angle, but what about when a fisheye lens isn't wide enough? If you want to record your entire surroundings while barreling down the ski slopes, anything less than a 360-degree view just doesn't cut it. Sure, you could jerry-rig 6 GoPros together onto a twelve-hundred-dollar mount, but what if you want to spend a little less than three grand? Read More

The price isn't a problem for the Moto X4 right now, which is deeply discounted to $250. With the removal of ads, this is a great deal. Read More
