[Deal Alert] Free ($300 off) Insta-Share Projector Moto Mod with purchase of other Moto Mod at Verizon

Projector phones always seemed like an idea that made more sense in science fiction than in present reality, which is probably why the Galaxy Beam failed to gain much traction. Such as it is, the benefit of the Moto Mod design allows anyone with a compatible phone to add on a countless number of peculiar peripherals... one at a time. Now, at Verizon, you can get a free Insta-Share Projector Moto Mod for free when you purchase any other Moto Mod. At $300 off, it's quite the bargain.

[Deal Alert] Verizon Wear24 smartwatch is just $79.99 ($270 off) on Woot

Not many people are interested in paying $349.99 for a smartwatch, which is probably why Verizon's Wear24 didn't do too hotly prior to its discontinuation. However, we've been seeing some incredible deals since then. Matching the lowest price we've seen thus far, Woot is offering new Wear 24s for just $74.99 (plus $5 for shipping) a pop.

Despite some of our misgivings about the Lenovo-owned Motorola, the company is still producing some decent devices. Misguided zealotry over mods aside, the Moto Z2 Play has proven to be an okay phone. If you're a Verizon customer, then Best Buy is offering the Z2 Play for just $7.99/month, making the phone cost $191.76, a whole $216 off MSRP.

Verizon updates Moto Z2 Force with support for its upcoming Gigabit LTE

5G is still a year or two away, and even then, hardly any phones will support the technology. Many networks have yet to saturate the existing LTE wireless standard, but Verizon (among other carriers) has been working toward that goal in some areas. Verizon has started pushing an update to the Moto Z2 Force, giving it support for the carrier's upcoming 'Gigabit Class LTE' service.

Verizon discontinues the Wear24 smartwatch after just 4 months

Verizon announced its very own Android Wear smartwatch earlier this year, powered by its LTE network. It started selling the Wear24 in May for $300 on contract and $350 without one. That seemed like an interesting proposition when consumers have shown little interest even in cheap smartwatches. Verizon didn't let this product languish too long, though. We've confirmed with the carrier that Wear24 is dead.

Samsung updates Verizon Galaxy S5 (launched in 2014) with August 2017 security patch

We like to make fun of Samsung (and most other OEMs) for being slow to roll out new versions of Android. It's true that Google puts everyone else to shame when it comes to big updates, but Samsung has been doing much better when it comes to security updates. Case in point: the Galaxy S5 on Verizon just got a security patch more than three years after it first launched in April of 2014.

Now that Android 8.0 Oreo has made its official debut, many of you are eagerly awaiting news on when your device will receive the latest and greatest from Google. But there are still devices that didn't even have last year's Nougat, like the ASUS ZenPad Z10 tablet on Verizon - that is, until now.
