[Update: Pre-orders are live] Galaxy S9 and S9+ US pre-orders, pricing, release date, and more

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are both official now, but there's still the pesky question of where to pick one up. You can always go the unlocked route, but carrier deals can present a decent discount. Plus, you've got aesthetics to take into consideration. Will this retailer have that color? And where can you grab it first? If you can't focus past the adjustable aperture in your enthusiasm for Samsung's latest, don't worry. We've got those details here.

Best Buy to shut down all 250 U.S. mobile stores on May 31

Best Buy announced yesterday that it plans to shut down all of its small mobile phone stores effective May 31. This news should come as no surprise to anyone who passes by the miniature establishments, usually in shopping malls, and it seems like it is long overdue. Reportedly, they account for only 1% of the company's overall revenue and 1% of its total square footage.

Google Clips clip-on camera now available from Best Buy, B&H, Google Store, and Verizon for $250

'Google Clips' was perhaps the strangest announcement from Google's October hardware event last year. It's a 130-degree clip-on camera that takes photos and videos automatically using machine learning, and sends media to your phone with the companion app. The $250 price tag is questionable at best, but if you still want to buy one, you can now do so from multiple retailers.

[Deal Alert] Best Buy will knock $100 off Galaxy S9/S9+ pre-orders on Friday, March 2nd only

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ have finally been revealed, and the pricing is pretty similar to last year's Galaxy S8 and S8+.

[Update: Reviews all deleted] Huawei loads its Best Buy Mate 10 Pro listing with over 100 fake reviews, inevitably gets caught

Almost three months ago, we reviewed Huawei's Mate 10 Pro. We concluded that it'd be a good buy when it hit the US market, so long as it wasn't priced at $1000. Well, Huawei hasn't made that mistake (the phone is currently $799.99 with a $150 gift card at Best Buy), but it isn't doing itself any favors today. The company has overloaded the Mate 10 Pro's Best Buy listing with over 100 fake reviews from aspiring "beta testers," giving the phone - one still in the pre-order phase, mind you - a 4.9-star overall rating.

[Deal Alert] August Smart Lock 2nd gen down to $117 at Amazon and Best Buy, and $99 in-store at Walmart

"A smart lock?! No, I'll never trust the security of my home to anything smart!" That was my thought until I sat down and considered the potential benefits: unlocking remotely for someone you trust (children who get home early from school, or visiting relatives waiting for you while you're stuck in traffic) or in case of emergency (fire, water leak), locking remotely if you forgot to or think you may have forgotten, checking the log of activity and being notified in case of suspicious unlocks, and the mere fact of using your keys less means you're less likely to lose or misplace them.
