Google Play Hosting Premium Game Sale, Top Titles for 50% Off

Google is currently hosting a big Premium Games sale over on Google Play, your one stop shop for all things related to Android apps, games, movies, books, and more. For a limited time, you can pick up a few top titles for 50% or more off of the original price, allowing you to get more fun, for less cash.

A few titles which should be no-brainers for most of you, that I also highly recommend, are Out There, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, The Room Two, Sprinkle Islands, and Contre Jour. Seriously, if you have not tried any of those, get on it.

Check out the full list of games on sale below.  (more…)

Contest: Two Nest Thermostats Up for Grabs From Droid Life!

Since Google is now selling its Nest Thermostat on Google Play, and we know that the $249 price for something like a home thermostat is turning more than a few of you off, we wanted to give a couple away. We have been Nest users for over a year now (our review) and still think it’s one of the best Android accessories you will ever purchase. To say that we wish everyone could experience a Nest, is an understatement.

But again, the $249 price tag is no joke, so to help ease the wallet strain on a couple of you, we have two to give away to the DL community.

The contest, like others, uses Rafflecopter to give you multiple chances for entry, while also making it easy to manage on our end. You don’t have to do all of the steps below, but the more you do, the more entries you will receive.

Crazy Deal Part 2: Galaxy S4 “Certified Like-New” From AT&T for $179 Off-Contract

Over the weekend, many of you took advantage of AT&T’s “certified like-new” Galaxy Note 3 sale, which had the device listed for $249 without a contract. That’s completely insane, in terms of deals. We initially thought that the price was wrong, but it held up all weekend and is still there, though the device in either black or white is unsurprisingly sold out. If you missed out, don’t worry, there is another deal going on that’s just as good for the Galaxy S4(more…)

Crazy Deal: Galaxy Note 3 (Certified Like-New) on AT&T is $249 Off Contract

Here is your ultimate deal of the weekend. AT&T is currently selling a “certified like-new” Galaxy Note 3 for $249 without a contract. Yes, we’re talking Note 3, not Note 2. This is the same Note 3 that typically runs $299 on-contract or $699 full retail when brand new.

Pretty tough to pass on, especially if you are in the market for a almost-new phone.

I should point out that AT&T’s website does require you to add a wireless plan in order to purchase the phone. If you are already on AT&T, though, might be worth a look.

Giveaway: Win One of Two Justin Maller Art Prints, Courtesy of DL and the Facets Wallpaper App (Update: Winners Picked)

If you are a fan of MKBHD or have seen our writeup on the Facets wallpaper app, then the name Justin Maller may sound familiar. Last year, he set out to release a different digital piece of art each day. Now that he has completed that task, the world was clamoring for an easy way to access his work, so Justin created a Facets wallpaper application for both Android and iOS.

To celebrate the launch of both applications, Justin offered us two 12 x 12 art prints to give away to our readers. Available is a print of Prowl (the lion) and a print of Totem (the dragon). Both feature bright colors, excellent design qualities, and can be had by you for the price of nothing.

As always, we will use Rafflecopter to make sure everyone who wants to win a print has a fair way of doing so. On Rafflecopter, there is an option to leave a comment in the section below, featuring a screenshot of your homescreen with a wallpaper from the Facets application. The wallpaper app is available through Google Play for just $0.99, however, it is not mandatory to do that. If you don’t have Facets, just leave a comment with which print you would like to win.

Let’s do this.  (more…)
