Like we do most years, we are once again putting together a decent Black Friday round-up of the deals that might interest the good people here at Droid Life. This isn’t going to be the ultimate in Black Friday guides, because well, there are dedicated Black Friday websites that do that better than we could ever think of doing. This one, like in the past, is focused on the Android stuff and the accessories that go with the Android stuff and the occasional other electronic that may or may not go with Android stuff, but still might be of value thanks to a deep discount.
As the we close in on November 27, Black Friday day, we’ll continue to update this post. Feel free to check back! (more…)
This morning, we showed you the new Instagram multiple accounts feature that is slowly rolling out on Android, but wanted to follow that up with a deeper look on video to give you a better idea as to how it works. Once additional accounts have been added, it’s really easy to flip between them all. (more…)
You know all of those nicely fitted skins that YouTubers are constantly
paid to hawk recommending in videos across the web? You know you’ve seen them – the shiny new carbon fiber or wood or metallic or leather skins from Slickwraps and dbrand that are available for all the newest phones. They are everywhere; you can’t miss them. If you are a fan of their products (and it’s OK to be, because they both make good stuff), know that they are each hosting massive Black Friday sales.

I know that most of us as Android elitists aren’t fans of Amazon’s implementation of “Android” on tablets and phones, but that doesn’t mean some of their other offerings, like the Amazon Echo and handful of Fire TV products aren’t solid and completely worth having in your home.
For Black Friday, Amazon is discounting all of their Amazon devices like the Echo and Fire TV line-up. They are also discounting all of their tablets and e-readers as well, in case those are of interest.
The Amazon Echo, which is Amazon’s assistant/speaker/cool-looking-tube, has been discounted by $31 to $149. Their Fire TV products are also seeing nice price cuts. The Fire TV stick (without voice remote) is down to $24.99, but you can grab the version with a voice remote for $10 extra at $34.99. If you want something a bit more high-powered, the regular Fire TV box is down to $74.99 ($25 discount).

An update to Instagram is rolling out on Android as v7.12.0 that brings a significant new feature – multiple account support! For those of us who operate a business and a personal Instagram account, we can now control both without having to log in and out each time! I can’t even begin to describe how big of a deal this is for all sorts of industries (and the DL IG account).
When you update, in order to add a secondary account, you’ll need to go to your profile page, hit the menu button in the top left, and then scroll all the way down until you find the “Add Account” option. Tap that and sign in. (more…)
You can now add the DL Deals Store to your Black Friday destinations, as we have a coupon code that will save you an extra 15% off of all of the already discounted prices. All you have to do is plug-in “BLACKFRIDAY” at checkout and the prices will drop. There are some exceptions, but for the most part, all of the stuff you want works with the code. (more…)
Google finally posted its Google Store plans for Black Friday and Cyber Monday last night, many of which are quite good. We’re talking discounts on Nexus products, accessories, Android Wear, Chromecast, and more. (more…)
Black Friday is well underway across country, but even if you got a late start, there are still deals to be had. The first that you should check out is the deal on the Nexus 5X at Amazon and Google Store. While not the best of the two new Nexus phones, it has been dropped to $299 for the shopping holiday and is probably well worth it at that price point.
To clarify, the Nexus 5X with 16GB of storage is $299, while the 32GB model is down to $349.
Be sure to read our Nexus 5X review to catch up.
