The ZTE Axon 7, the latest affordable flagship from the Chinese manufacturer, is now available for pre-order in the US at a variety of retailers. With a starting price of $399, you certainly get a lot of bang for your buck here.
As a recap, the Axon 7 was announced back in May with a somewhat mysterious launch time frame here in the States. It made headlines because not only did it offer a bunch of great specs at what we assumed would be an affordable price, but ZTE also made sure we knew that it was one of the first Daydream-ready phones.

Should you have managed to hold off on buying the newly released US unlocked Galaxy S7 when it initially went live yesterday and are ready to pull the trigger today on payday, just hours before we step into a holiday weekend, we’ve got a decent deal for you. Best Buy is one of the few retailers in the US who has them in-stock, ready for pickup, so if you are considering buying from them, how does an additional $75 gift card with purchase sound?
The $75 gift card comes after purchase, so you still need to fork out the $670 for the phone, a phone that works on all US carriers and is the Galaxy S7 (or S7 Edge) to buy if you have yet to do so. Best Buy says that the gift card ships free, has no expiration, and can be used in both stores and online.
UPDATE: The Galaxy S7 Edge is now available from Best Buy and a part of the deal.

As we inch closer to the summer launch of the Moto Z brand, it only makes sense that Motorola and its retail partners try and clear out any remaining Moto X Pure Edition inventory. Today, they should be able to do that in a hurry with the crazy low prices they are currently offering the phone for with 16GB or 64GB of storage.
Most retailers who carry the phone are selling the 16GB Moto X Pure Edition for just $239.00, which is a $110 discount. If you want all the storage, you can grab the 64GB version for just $319.00, a $130 discount. B&H Photo, Best Buy, and Amazon all have each phone for that low price. (more…)
To kick off the weekend, Best Buy is currently running the best deal on the Nexus 6P we have seen in a while. All models have been slashed by $80, so that means you can get into Google’s best Nexus ever (our review) for as little as $419 with 32GB of storage.
If you need more than 32GB of storage, you’ll find the 64GB model at just $469 and the 128GB model at just $569.
Best Buy currently has the gold, aluminium, and graphite colors in stock in all storage sizes, plus they are tossing in free shipping.

Need a smartwatch? How about one of Samsung’s Gear S2 models? As of today, the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic have been discounted by $50 at Best Buy and Amazon. And we are talking about all models, including the new platinum and rose gold Classics.
At a $50 discount, you can get into the regular Gear S2 for $249, the Classic for $299, or the platinum and rose gold Classic versions for $399.
Months ago, when the Gear S2 was first released, I spent a good amount of time with it to see if it could become my smartwatch of choice. While I prefer Android Wear devices to Samsung’s wearables, there is no denying the attractive hardware here, really cool rotating bezel, and somewhat robust software experience. If anything, the Gear S2 is a solid alternative to Android Wear.

The Huawei Watch, an Android Wear smartwatch that is about as good as it gets for the current crop, has been discounted by either $100 or $150 depending on the model. Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg are all selling the watch with heavy discounts.
The base model, which has a stainless steel case and leather strap, has dropped from $350 to $250 for a limited time. The same goes for the black stainless steel, stainless steel with mesh bracelet, and the all stainless with classic steel bracelet. Those have all been discounted by a solid $100. But, if you want some gold in your life, Huawei is shaving off $150 for the all gold with metal bracelet and the gold model with leather bracelet.
Be sure to read our Huawei Watch review if you have not already.
