Since 2014 is turning out to be the year of the micro SD slot – G3, Galaxy S5 and One (M8) all have them – you should probably think about picking up a new high-speed micro SD card if you don’t have one already. Amazon is currently hosting one of their regularly scheduled deals on SanDisk cards, with prices slashed at up to 76%.
You can grab a 16GB micro SD card for $11.12 (44% off), 32GB card for $16.76 (76% off), or a 64GB card for $36.95 (63% off). All cards are Class 10, so they can produce transfer speeds up to 30MB/s. All cards also come with an adapter.
If you plan on picking up the LG G3 from any of the carriers in the US, you likely already know that the US carriers are forcing you to buy optional accessories in order to enable wireless charging. The G3 in the UK and other countries includes wireless charging backs out of the box, much like the Verizon G2 did last year, but things have changed this time around in our home country. Carriers are greedy, we get it. They want you to spend more on the phone you just locked into for two years or spent hundreds on to get the most out of it. (more…)
Spigen, one of our favorite case manufacturers, was kind enough to send over a box of cases that included their entire line-up for the newly launched LG G3. In the box of samples, we received a Slim Armor, Ultra Fit, Ultra Hybrid, and Wallet S. These range of cases covers the needs of just about anyone, so we in the video below we take each for a spin to let you see how they look, talk about how they feel on the device, and some of their individual benefits.

Level, the premium range of audio products introduced by Samsung back in April, will become available in the US starting tomorrow on Gilt.com. After the line passes through its 72-hour stint on Gilt, all products will come to Amazon (July 20), Samsung.com (July 21), and Samsung Experience Shops in Best Buy stores (July 27) shortly thereafter.
For those new to Level, you are looking at four different products. The Level Over is an over-ear Bluetooth headphone that delivers an “immersive sound experience.” It runs $349.99. The Level On is an on-ear, wired headphone that “packs a powerful, clear and pure sound in a compact design,” running $179.99. The Level In is a pair of in-ear buds that runs $149.99. Finally, the Level Box is a Bluetooth speaker that costs $169.99. We have yet to test any of these products, but hope they have something special in-store to justify those prices. At least they look pretty, right?

If you could think of a single accessory that would greatly enhance your smartphone experience, is there any chance that you would say, “Give me a secondary e-ink display that I could pair to my phone and attach in a case!” I can’t say that I would, but if the early success of a Kickstarter campaign for a product called the InkCase Plus is any indicator, maybe many of you would. The InkCase Plus went live yesterday on the crowd-funding site with a $100,000 goal. In less than a day, it eclipsed that goal and seems to be picking up even more steam. (more…)
One of the more interesting Android accessories that we have seen over the past year came when HTC introduced the Dot View Case for the One M8. A weird looking accessory that is also strangely functional, it certainly gives the One M8 a distinctive look in comparison to other “smart” cases and covers.
Today, the app that controls the Dot View Case received an update through Google Play that brings a few new features inside. (more…)
AT&T appears to be running an accessory promo at the moment that will land you 25% off your entire cart if you buy three or more products. Should you couple the newly released LG G Watch (since it is listed as an accessory) with two incredibly cheap, $5 Body Glove products, you could get into the G Watch for as little as $179. The G Watch currently retails for $229, so you are looking at $50 in savings.
We reviewed the G Watch last night and came away from it more looking to the future, than anything. The product isn’t bad, but the platform behind it is so new that it is tough to fully evaluate where it could be in a couple of months. At $179, it may just be worth a look if you love adopting new technology out of the gate. (more…)
