As many of us graduate from our current phone to a Galaxy S8 or S8+, I will once again suggest you consider buying one of the cheap magnetic air vent car mounts you’ll find on Amazon. These little guys only cost a few bucks, yet they allow you to mount your phone without a ridiculous dashboard vise grip kit. All you have to do is slap one of these in an air vent and then attach your Galaxy S8 (or other phone) on the thing and it’ll stick. (more…)
If you pre-ordered a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ and you now have your phone, it’s time to claim that free Gear VR with Controller that Samsung promised you.
Alternatively, Samsung will sell you a $99 bundle of goodies instead, once you show proof of purchase that includes that Gear VR with Controller, along with a pair of “premium” AKG headphones (Y50BT) and a 256GB microSD card. Samsung says this pack has a $500 value. In case you were wondering those AKG headphones are on-ear Bluetooth headphones (reviews), while the 256GB card is one of Samsung’s EVO+ models (obviously).

HTC is hosting a sale on its entire line-up of phones in the US for the next week. You’ll find hefty discounts, though it’ll be up to you to decide if any are big enough to get you to pull the trigger.
So Amazon is currently hosting a sale on a SanDisk Ultra 128GB microSD card that drops the price to just $32.99. That’s a pretty crazy low price, since the lowest you’ll find almost any other similar 128GB card for is in the $45 range. This card is interesting, though, because Amazon claims it’s some special “Made for Amazon” version and that it’ll work great in your Fire Tablet. That’s just silly. This will work great in any phone that needs a microSD card. (more…)
The original Huawei Watch might still be one of the best smartwatches on the planet (our review). Actually, no, it is one of the best. With its classic design, fantastic AMOLED display, solid performance, and and range of variations, I’d still choose this watch over some of the new Android Wear devices that have been released, even over the yet-to-be-released Huawei Watch 2.
Right now, if you head over to Amazon, you’ll find the original Huawei Watch at a heck of discount that drops the price to $164.88. That’s close to half off the original retail price and is borderline impulse buy territory. This is the silver with black leather band model, though almost all others are discounted heavily too.

I think I found your next car charger. The AUKEY dual port car charger with both USB Type-C (5V/3A) and Quick Charge 3.0 USB ports can be had at Amazon right now for just $9 with code. It typically runs $20, so we’re talking a heck of a deal.
With this, you’ll get QC 3.0 charging speeds while on the go out of the standard USB port, but that Type-C port at 5V/3A will also charge your Type-C devices quickly. It’s like the perfect charger, since we almost all have old USB cables lying around right next to our new set of Type-C to Type-C cables.
Use code “PGR948US” at checkout to drop the price from $19.99 to $9.
