Should you buy a Moto X (1st gen) on Verizon, knowing that the 3rd gen model is more than likely arriving in the next couple of months? Not unless you really need a phone to get you by for eight or nine weeks. Sure, it’s still probably a decent phone, but it is approaching that 2-year-old mark where phones magically start figuring out ways to shut down so that you’ll upgrade to something newer.
But hey, if you need a phone to get you by for a minute, this isn’t a terrible option. eBay is currently selling a manufacturer refurbished Moto X (1st gen) for $109 without a contract. It should have Lollipop in a couple of weeks too…maybe.
T-Mobile is currently offering a free storage upgrade on Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge purchases that doubles your 32GB to 64GB or 64GB to 128GB at no extra cost. That’s a great deal and all, but Samsung may have just sweetened the deal for those who are actually interested in purchasing the 64GB version of the phone from T-Mobile. They are also offering a solid $100 off for those who buy the phone from other carriers. (more…)
Own a smartphone or other device with not-so-great battery life? If so, you can pick up a Intocircuit 15,000mAh Power Castle external battery for just $35 on the DL Deals Store. Regularly priced at $130, this power bank features a brushed metal exterior, capable of charing two devices simultaneously. (more…)
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.
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…)
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.

As shown off during this year’s CES, the Smart WiFi Socket allows owners to place timers on individual home appliances, hopefully leading to less energy used, saving you money in the long run. (more…)
