DEAL: Nexus 5X Back on eBay for Just $239.99 ($110 Off)

Another laughably low price is back and attached to the Nexus 5X over at eBay today. For just $239.99, you can own one of Google’s newest smartphones and get on with your Android N or update-first-having self. In case you were wondering, that’s a solid $110 discount before even factoring in the free shipping.

Like the deal a couple of weeks back, this 16GB Nexus 5X is the Euro model H791. That’s worth noting because even though it will still work in the US – on T-Mobile and AT&T – it won’t have the universal connectivity on Verizon and Sprint as well.

Verizon Will Give You 2GB of Free Data for Using Android Pay

Verizon just announced a new promo that can land you up to 2GB of free data if you use Android Pay. It’s not straight forward, so let me try to explain this before you all go out and rush to Trader Joe’s to get in on the freebie action.

According to Verizon, you can get 1GB of free data by tapping to pay with Android Pay in supported stores. If you continue using Android Pay, Verizon will give you another free 1GB on the third tap. In other words, you need to use Android Pay three times in order to get 2GB of free data. With me so far?  (more…)

Deal: LG Selling Replacement Batteries and Charging Cradles for $15, Bundles for $20

For a limited time on LG’s website, the company is hosting a promotion on replacement batteries and charging cradles for the LG G3, G4, and V10. With the promo, owners of these devices can pick up replacement batteries for $15, as well as charging cradles for said batteries at the same $15 price. If you bundle a charging cradle and replacement battery for the V10 or G4, LG is only charging $20 for the couple, which isn’t bad at all.  (more…)

DEAL: Big Discounts on Aukey Quick Charge 3.0 Chargers With These Codes

Aukey, one of the leaders and early adopters in Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology, has handed us a few coupon codes for extra discounts on some of their best selling products to share. They are currently handing out additional price drops on their 2-port QC 3.0 car charger, single port wall charger, and 2-port wall charger. With these new discounts, you can get into a QC 3.0 charger for as little as $12.99.

With Quick Charge 3.0, like with QC 2.0, you get excellent charging speeds that dramatically reduce the time you need to stay connected to a charger. Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology really is one of those game-changing technologies because battery technology still hasn’t caught up to our non-stop, always-moving lives. We’ve talked ad nauseam, but it’s one of those newish techs worth investing in if you haven’t already.

At this time the LG G5 supports QC 3.0, but we are expecting the HTC 10 too as well.

You’ll find links and codes below.  (more…)

DEAL: Nexus 5X 16GB is Just $229 Today at eBay ($120 Off)

The Nexus 5X, the smaller new Nexus from Google that lives on the affordable side, is available today at eBay for a ridiculously low price of $229. That’s $120 off, by the way.

This particular phone is version H791, which is actually the international or euro version, so that means you probably can’t use this phone on Verizon or Sprint. It’s essentially an unlocked GSM phone, with all supported bands for T-Mobile and AT&T. Sorry, CDMA folks.

Still, if you want a Nexus and are on AT&T or T-Mobile, talk about a hell of a deal.

Download: HTC 10 Wallpapers

We are still a few days away from HTC’s unveiling of the HTC 10, but since when has that ever stopped the Android community from getting their hands on the goodies? In the latest release of intel, a well known HTC leaker has published a gathering of wallpapers that will be included on the HTC 10. In my own personal opinion, they are way better than anything you will ever find on Samsung device, so here’s your chance to rock them before the phone is even announced.  (more…)
