When Jeff reviewed in super amazing detail the DJI Spark drone, he loved nearly everything about it from its portability to its build quality and resulting images, but two of his main concerns were related to the terrible Android app and the lack of a controller in the box. Back then, it would have cost you $499 to get the Spark alone and then $150 for the controller, which saves you from using the app a lot. Now, a mere 5 months later, both can be had in one neat bundle at B&H for $349 total. That's nearly half the 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
Were you not enticed enough by the $529.99 refurbished Verizon Pixel 2 deal we posted earlier today? Well, we might have some good news for you; provided that Google has deemed you worthy, you might actually be able to get a brand-new Pixel 2 for less than that. In fact, depending on what configuration of Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL you buy, you might be able to save nearly $200 over MSRP - quite a significant amount. But it all comes down to whether or not Google thinks you're a "loyal Nexus owner." Read More
Don't you love when smartphone prices drop to a point where what counts as a high-end flagship starts becoming affordable again? In this case, the Galaxy S9 is around the corner and that explains why prices for the S8 and S8+ will see some significant discounts now, but if you can't wait and want a good deal this very moment, there's one to be had on eBay.

"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.

All of Google's own cases for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are on sale at the Google Store, but the discounted prices could affect whether you receive free shipping on your order.
Google's Pixel 2 Live Cases and Artworks Live Cases are each discounted $8, from $40 to $32 for the "slim protection" versions, and $10 off "dual protection" from $50 to $40. Google's fabric cases also get the $8 discount to $32. Read More
Motorola is offering some nice discounts on several devices for an after-holiday sale, including a significant $100 savings on the Moto Z2 Play.
Usually retailing for $499, an unlocked Moto Z2 Play with 64GB of storage is going for $399 at Motorola's website, in either dark gray or gold colors. Best Buy isn't offering the unlocked version, and even the unlocked version without a U.S. warranty is still $75 more expensive at Amazon. Read More
I've sung the praises of my password manager of choice, Enpass, many times before on Android Police. But today I get to tell you all a better piece of news: the Pro lifetime subscription is half off until January 1, 2018, making it only $4.99 instead of $9.99.
If you're wondering what sets Enpass apart for me, which is the most frequent question I get each time I post about it, here's the answer. I personally feel more comfortable storing my data on my cloud storage of choice instead of trusting LastPass or Dashlane or 1Password. I also like that Enpass has a one-time fee for mobile and is free on desktops. Read More
In the active noise cancelling and wireless headphones category, there are several great options worth considering, but one of them has recently started standing out because it ticks most, if not all, of the boxes: the Sony WH1000XM2. And today you can grab it for $52 less than its regular price, putting it at just 2 bucks shy of $300.
The WH1000XM2 are Sony's newest ANC wireless headphones with 30 hours of battery life (with ANC on), wired and wireless modes, NFC for quick pairing, hi-res audio and LDAC support, touch controls, and a quick attention mode that lets you pause the music so you can hear what's being said around you.

Did you forget to buy a gift for that one relative's kid? Think, think again. Did you gamble on a different toy that may never get delivered in time for Christmas or did you purchase another gift only to realize that it isn't exactly what it said it would be or what the child wanted? Or maybe did you forget to gift yourself something fun for the holidays? There's still time to save Christmas and save some bucks in one go.
Three of Anki's products are discounted on Amazon by $50 to $55, practically making them a third-off compared to the MSRP. Read More
