Back in July, Motorola brought the new Moto G family to the US as the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus (unboxing). Today, they are adding to the family by also introducing the Moto G4 Play, a phone that manages to be even less expensive, yet avoids dropping all of the way down to the Moto E family.
Starting at just $149.99, you are looking at a phone with a Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage with microSD support, 5-inch HD (720p) display, 2800mAh battery, 8MP rear camera (f/2.2), 5MP front camera (f/2.2), water repellent coating, and Android 6.0.1. As you can tell from that last, this isn’t even really a mid-range device and really there for those on a strict budget. It comes in either black or white. (more…)
The original Gear VR headset from Samsung is on sale at Amazon, priced at just $59.99. Originally priced in the $100 range, this headset is compatible with a number of devices from Samsung, and should still provide a good virtual reality experience for you. (more…)
Sonos, a pioneer in the multi-room speaker game who has struggled recently because of poor software experiences and increasing competition, announced two major moves today that it hopes will help it maintain its lead in the category. For one, Sonos will soon get Amazon Alexa integration, so that users will be able to control their Sonos speakers by talking to an Echo or Echo Dot, for example. And two, before Alexa support arrives, users will be able to control Sonos through the Spotify app. (more…)
The Nextbit Robin was originally released with a price tag of $399. Over the months, we saw it go on sale quite a bit, even dipping to $299. However, all of those deals can’t touch this one, with Amazon currently selling the phone for just $199. Thanks to being Amazon’s Deal of the Day, buyers can grab the Robin in either Mint or Midnight, the same as you will find on Nextbit’s website. (more…)
If you have over $100 to spend on Bluetooth sport headphones for working out or an active lifestyle, there are some decent options out there, like offerings from Jaybird. If you aren’t interested in breaking the bank on a pair of headphones that you plan to sweat all over and could reguarly be put in situations where they might be stepped on, dropped, and put through other types of physical abuse, consider the deal currently running on Aukey’s EP-B4 bluetooth sport headphones.

Today is your day if you have been wanting an Amazon Echo or Amazon Tap, yet only buy when heavy discounts have been applied. Through a handful of retailers (Best Buy and Lowe’s for example), each product can be had for $50 off. That brings the Amazon Echo price down to $129.99 and the Amazon Tap down to $79.99. Those are good deals, friends.
In case you need a recap on the Echo, you could think of it has a decent room-filling speaker for playing music from from a variety of sources or via Bluetooth. But on top of that, you can ask Alexa (the brains behind Echo) for answers to questions, about the weather, to set timers, control lights and thermostats, read the news, share sports scores, re-purchase products on Amazon, and even order an Uber or pizza. It’s a bit like a home assistant. The Tap is similar, only it’s portable and you need to press a button in order to get to Alexa.
If Echo or Tap products aren’t your thing, a bunch of other Amazon products are discounted as well, including Fire HD 10 tablets ($80 off), Kindles, Fire TVs ($69), and Fire TV Sticks ($25). (more…)
Amazon is currently selling the Amazon Echo for just $139.99 as a “certified refurbished” unit. That’s a good $40 discount off a brand new unit, which Amazon describes as being “refurbished, tested, and certified to look and work like new.” So in other words, you are basically getting a unit that has had any issues fixed and then made new again.

The Moto G4, Motorola’s recently introduced budget-friendly phone that still packs a punch, is currently available at Amazon on a special deal for just $149.99 with 16GB of storage and $179.99 with 32GB of storage. Those both weigh in at $50 discounts.
Keep in mind that this is not the Amazon-sponsored one that shows ads on your lock screen. This is the clean, ad-free version that you would buy if you picked one up directly from Motorola. In other words, this is the one you actually want that doesn’t include Amazon ads and apps throughout. (more…)
