DEAL: Nexus 5X Drops to $299 on Amazon and Google Store

Black Friday is well underway across country, but even if you got a late start, there are still deals to be had. The first that you should check out is the deal on the Nexus 5X at Amazon and Google Store. While not the best of the two new Nexus phones, it has been dropped to $299 for the shopping holiday and is probably well worth it at that price point.

To clarify, the Nexus 5X with 16GB of storage is $299, while the 32GB model is down to $349.

Be sure to read our Nexus 5X review to catch up.

While we have no clue as to what Google intends to do, we can have a bit of fun speculating. For Android, it’s possible that there will be significant savings to be had on Google Play for apps, music, movies, and books. This seems like a given. For Nexus, is it possible Google will cut the price of its current device lineup for a limited time? Or maybe, if you buy a Nexus device at the regular price, Google will throw in a free Chromecast or $100 of Google Play credit. That seems a bit more likely.  (more…)

BlackBerry Priv Review

The BlackBerry Priv is, in my opinion, the most important phone of the year. That’s not something I say lightly. The Priv gets so many things right and has a uniquely beneficial experience that you can’t get on any other device, but like every other phone there are flaws. Is the Priv the phone of the year or just another nail in BlackBerry’s (née RIM) coffin?

This is our BlackBerry Priv review. (more…)
