For one day only, Amazon is slashing another $30 off its special ad-filled Moto G4, dropping the price to $119.99. While that “ad-filled” description may turn you off, it’s not actually the worst situation should be in the market for a new cheap phone.
The Moto G4 is a great budget phone with solid specs and really good performance that normally retails for $200, but this particular version sees extra discounts because it shows Amazon ads here and there. We’re talking about ads on the lock screen that are personalized to you, so it shouldn’t be complete spam. You can’t get rid of them either; keep that in mind.
Outside of the ad stuff, this is a phone that works universally on all the big carriers (Verizon and AT&T included) and has a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 1.5GHz octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 13MP camera, and turbo charging. It really is a solid phone for those of you on a budget.

T-Mobile opened up pre-orders for the LG V20 this morning. The phone still won’t arrive until October 28, but you can get in now and lock up at least $350 in goodies if you trade in “any working 4G smartphone.”
According to T-Mobile, any working 4G phone of yours is worth at least $200. That means you could get more, but you are guaranteed at least that as long as the phone connects to “4G.” On top of the trade-in deal, T-Mo is tossing in a pair of B&O H3 headphones with a value set at $149 and a free tablet. Your tablet choices, as long as you sign a 24-month agreement for the V20, are the LG G Pad X 8.0 or the G Pad F 8.0. (more…)
Earlier this week, we pointed out a heck of a deal on Jaybird X2 headphones at Target. For $79.99, you are looking at one of the best pairs of Bluetooth earbuds on the market with a solid $70 discount. That’s pretty nuts!
That deal is still live, but we wanted to point out that both Best Buy and Amazon are now offering the Jaybird X2 at the same $80 price. If you prefer either of those retailers over Target, now is the time to go for it.

For who knows how long via Best Buy’s website, select models of the Moto 360 (2nd Gen) can be purchased starting at $100 off. As for which models this deal applies to, it’s the Black with Black Leather, Black Stainless Steel, and Rose Gold with Blush Leather designs.
With the $100 off, the Black Leather option drops to just $199, the Stainless Steel option to $279 ($120 off), and the Rose Gold to $229 ($100 off). All of the watches are brand new, in boxes, and definitely not refurbished. (more…)
Robin from Nextbit, maybe better known as the one phone from Kickstarter that doesn’t suck, or is actually a real thing (see Saygus), is currently on sale via Amazon for $199. While the phone is nice, it seems not many people purchased it. That’s not overly surprising, though, considering how little Nextbit likely spent on marketing the device. Essentially, I see the phone as a proof of concept, with its cloud-based storage system and crowdfunded roots.
Regardless, the device is still a solid option, especially at this $199 price. Specs include a 5.2″ 1080p LCD display, 13MP rear-facing camera, dual front-facing speakers (nice!), 32GB of onboard storage, 100GB of cloud storage, and Snapdragon 808 processor. Thanks to updates, it’s also running Marshmallow, too. (more…)
With no Galaxy Note 7 for you to spend money on coupled with the chance that our list of solid replacement choices might not be for everyone, we have another smartphone option for your consideration – the Moto Z DROID at Best Buy. Why? Because if you buy this modular wonder from Best Buy on a payment plan or contract, they will hand you a $250 gift card to be spent on whatever.
The Moto Z DROID, for those not familiar, is Moto’s newest flagship that is compatible with Moto Mods (our full review). Moto Mods are modules that can add functionality to or improve the experience of the Moto Z, like a projector, external speaker, and battery pack. It’s by no means a flawless device, but it’s a solid device that is of flagship quality. Is it better than the Galaxy S7? I don’t think so, but you may, especially if you find Moto Mods to be appealing.
Right now, the phone can be had for 24 monthly payments of $26 or with a 2-year contract and $201 up front.

Jaybird’s still-very-good X2 wireless earbuds are currently on sale at Target for just $79.99. Target claims that’s a $100 discount, but it’s really more like $70, since the earbuds are listed at $149.99 at most retailers these days. Either way, if you need a good pair of Bluetooth earbuds, these are a great choice. We talk about them a lot when they go on sale and that’s because they were a good buy at full price and remain a great buy as the price drops in antipication of the X3.
The Jaybird X2 feature 8-hour battery life, both Comply memory foam tips and standard rubber tips, sweat-resistance, and of course, really solid audio performance for a Bluetooth headset. I personally use them for workouts and don’t know that I’ll switch off of them, well, until the X3 comes out.
Free shipping is included.
