Best Buy slashed the price of the LG G Watch by $50 this weekend, dropping it to $179 in either black or white. That right there, is a pretty good deal for one of the original Android Wear devices, which originally retailed for $229. In fact, it still is $229 through Google Play.
We reviewed the G Watch and came away interested in the future of Android Wear as a platform, but were a little bored with the device’s design. Also, keep in mind that LG just announced their new premium round version of the G Watch, the G Watch R, which should put this device to shame. But, if you want in on the Android Wear game, this is the best deal in town.

Once again, eBay is hosting a deal for the Nexus 7 (2013) with 32GB of storage at a price that no one will be able to beat. At $169.99, you are looking at a $100 discount from the retail price that Google charges. In the end, though, you will save more than $100, since this deal includes free shipping.
The tablet is “manufacturer refurbished,” so no, it is not brand new. But as we have said countless times through posts like this, refurbishing isn’t always a bad thing.
A deal is currently taking place over on Woot!, one which will have you scoring a Nexus 7 (2013) 16GB WiFi-only tablet for just $129.99. In comparison to the price this device had at first, which was $229, you are saving yourself $100. Not a bad little deal at all. (more…)
In response to Sprint’s new 20GB $100 plan that was announced earlier in the week for new customers, T-Mobile has decided that it wants all of the current Sprint customers that aren’t being offered this new deal to come on over to its promised land. Through current T-Mobile customers, Magenta is offering unlimited LTE upgrades to any current customer who brings over a friend from another carrier, including Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon. That new customer will also receive the free upgrade to unlimited LTE. (more…)
Still don’t own a Chromecast? Come on, why not? Here is your chance to pick one up for $10 under the retail price of $35, priced at just $25 through Groupon.

I think it’s safe to say that there are at least one or two DL staff members who would consider the Samsung Galaxy S4 to be better than this year’s Galaxy S5. Not only is the size of the phone much more manageable, but it also lacks some of the extra unnecessary bloat, like heart rate sensors and fingerprint scanners. Plus, if you are going to have to deal with TouchWiz’s never-ending lag, you may as well do it on a phone that fits better in your hand and pocket.
If the Galaxy S4 is still something you would consider, especially since it runs at a full retail price much lower than this year’s model, take a look at today’s deal through eBay. You can grab the Verizon Galaxy S4 (brand new) in black for $359.95. The current price through Verizon’s site is $499.99. The seller is also tossing in free expedited shipping. Again, this is a new unit, not refurbished like many of eBay’s daily deals.
We don’t know if Google will ever release another Nexus 7 tablet. In fact, the only rumors of a new Nexus tablet center around an HTC-made device with a metal body and an 8.9-inch display. So if you plan to buy a Nexus 7, like last year’s model, you are quickly running out of time. Google has sold out of almost all versions of the Nexus 7 (2013) through Google Play without re-stocking them for weeks. The only two available are the 32GB LTE model in black or the 16GB WiFi-only version, both of which go in and out of stock on the daily.
If the 16GB WiFi-only version is of interest, hit up eBay’s daily deal today. You can grab a “manufacturer refurbished” 16GB Nexus 7 (2013) for $129, but that also includes a free leather case and free standard shipping. The device retailed brand new for $229. Not a bad deal.
For those among us who can’t get enough of vanilla Android, Expansys is hosting yet another Google Play Edition sale, looking to possibly make room on their shelves for new inventory. Up for grabs, priced much lower than their original price tags, are the HTC One (M7), Sony Xperia Z Ultra, and LG G Pad 8.3 GPE editions. (more…)
