Deal: $209 for This Refurbished Verizon Moto X (2nd Gen)

Motorola may be failing miserably at providing Lollipop updates to its line of flagships from 2014, but that doesn’t mean their phones aren’t still worth a look at the right price. For example, you can grab the Moto X (2nd gen) on Verizon for just $209.99. That’s a crazy good deal on any phone, let alone the phone we called 2014’s best.

Now, keep in mind that the phone is manufacturer refurbished, so it’s not “brand new.” Still, $200 for this good of a phone that will certainly get Lollipop in the very near future is almost a no-brainer if you need a new, cheap phone.

This deal includes 16GB black, white (might be bamboo), or “red” (might be football leather) color choices. Free shipping is also included.

This Week’s Free Google Play Kids App of the Week is Toca Hair Salon 2

Last week, Google started a new “Free app of the week” program for the newly launched family section of Google Play. They started off with a Daniel Tiger game, but have now followed that up with a game called Toca Hair Salon 2. It’s a $3 game, so if you have kids, you may want to give it a look.

In the game, kids get to style the heck out of people’s hair, run their own salon, and choose from six different characters. Fun times.  (more…)

Deal: Unlocked Galaxy S6 is Just $529 Today at eBay

A featured deal popped up at eBay this afternoon that includes a brand new, unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6 with 32GB of storage for just $529. That is a hell of a deal for a phone we just dubbed the best Android phone you can buy.

This is model SM-G920F, which is one of the unlocked international variants. The other is the SM-G920I. This model should work without a hiccup on AT&T, but should also work well on T-Mobile. I have the G920I as an unlocked Galaxy S6 and have used it on T-Mobile. Both appear to have similar, if not the same, bands.

As for the price, well, this is almost $200 lower than the AT&T and T-Mobile full retail prices. Since it should work on both carriers, this is a tough deal to pass up if you are in the market for a new phone.

DEAL: Nexus 6 32GB for $440 on eBay!

Whoa. $440 for a brand new 32GB Nexus 6? You may want to jump on this deal at eBay before the “limited quantity” is gone. The deal has been live for a couple of hours, and with that price, it may not last long.

This is version XT1103, which is the US model that will work on every major carrier here. It comes in a factory sealed package and in midnight blue.

At $440, you are looking at a discount of $210 off the original $650 price. Granted, Google has slashed the price to $500 in recent weeks, so the discount isn’t quite as good as it would have been a month ago. Still, $60 is $60.

Free shipping is included.
