A number of you have expressed interest in purchasing an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6, even though Samsung hasn’t officially announced one for the US. I can’t say I blame you for wanting the carrier-removed variant, as it doesn’t contain (as much) bloatware and can be taken to any of your favorite GSM carriers without first needing someone to unlock it. These also tend to be the versions that get the first wave of updates as they are pushed out by Samsung. Unlocked phones are awesome. (more…)
The Moto 360, which is arguably still the best Android Wear watch available, is now just $179 at Amazon and Best Buy if you choose the leather band option. After carrying a $250 price tag from the beginning, you are looking at a pretty drastic $70 discount here. If you don’t want leather, and instead want one of the metal bands, Best Buy has dropped metal versions to as low as $219, while Amazon is hovering around $229.
The timing of the drop probably isn’t a coincidence, as today happens to be Apple Watch pre-order day. Hey, whatever the reason, we love discounts on fine products.
If you need to catch up on the first round smartwatch, that features wireless charging, premium materials, and a classic watch design, be sure to read our Moto 360 review.
The deal of the day goes out to the new listing over at eBay which has the Sony Smartwatch 3 at just $169.99. That’s an $80 discount over the Android Wear-powered device’s usual price, plus free shipping is included.
The Sony Smartwatch 3 sports a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.6-inch LCD display (320×320), 420mAh battery, is IP68 water and dust resistant, and GPS. Thanks to that GPS, the Smartwatch 3 is still one of the only Android Wear devices that can be taken offline (disconnected from your phone) and still track usage. For workout fanatics who need to track long runs but may not want carry along a phone, this is probably the best option.
The deal is in limited quantities, so don’t let it sit for long.
Phone batteries die. It sucks, but happens all of the time. To help combat this issue, battery packs are available for those who don’t mind toting around portable battery juice for whenever it may be needed. The latest deal in the DL Deals Store can nab you a 22,400mAh battery pack, capable of charging three devices, all for just $40. With free shipping, too. (more…)
Best Buy just kicked off a 2-day sale that includes a couple of note-worthy discounts. First, we have Google’s Nexus 9 with 16GB of storage for just $325 – that’s a $75 discount on a tablet that ranks in the top two for Android at the moment (our review). If tablets aren’t your thing, then maybe a $5 discount on the Chromecast will do. Or a DROID Turbo for $50?
You can see the full list of deals here, or we have individual links to each below.
The latest deal on the DL Deals Store is for an “ultra-precise” Hand Stylus, lowered from $25, down 40% to $14.95. With this stylus, writing notes, playing certain games, and drawing on your Android device should be made much more simple with its retractable and easily replaceable rubber tip. (more…)
Motorola’s latest $140-off promo for the Moto X has come to a close, but as has been the case lately, they went ahead and replaced it with another price slashing. Their P4000 Power Pack is now $19.99, down from $79.99.
The “4000” in the name is in reference to the 4,000mAh battery tucked inside, which should be good for a charge and a half depending on the phone. This Power Pack is slim, has an included micro USB cable tucked into its body, and is capable of charging two devices at a time.
$20 for some juice on the go isn’t a bad deal at all.
