At the end of our HTC One M9 review, we told you to skip the phone and instead opt for last year’s HTC One M8 should you really love the all-metal design and style of HTC’s products. The One M8 is a better phone. It looks better. It has a better camera, even if it is a bit of a gimmick. It has a better display. It’s battery life is somehow, confusingly better. And best of all, it’s waaaaaaay cheaper.
Take today’s deal for example, where you can buy a brand new HTC One M8 for AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint at just $299 through Best Buy. That’s $299 for a phone at full retail, without a contract or payment plan. You pay $299 and then walk away with a phone that you own.
The deal includes “limited quantities” and is only available today, so be quick if interested.

Need a decent back-up phone? Best Buy is currently hosting a 4-hour sale on the Verizon Moto G that will get the phone in your hands for just $25. Sure, it’s the 1st gen model and doesn’t have LTE, but you never know when you might need a temporary replacement device. Or maybe your 12-year old needs his first phone? Or maybe you just like owning random prepaid phones? I don’t know, but whatever the reason, now is your chance to grab one for less than an IMAX Avengers ticket.
Note: Again, this phone doesn’t have LTE even if Best Buy’s listing claims that it does. Trust me, it doesn’t.
The deal ends at 3PM Central.

April 10 is here! Did you order your Apple Watch yet? Errr, that’s not what we care about. What is happening today….oh yeah! Star Wars is now available digitally! No…well, that’s awesome news, but that’s not what we care about either at this moment. Ahh yes, it’s Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and HTC One M9 day! Did you get/order yours?
Below, we have links for all and to each carrier, in case you can’t figure out how to use Google Search.
If you need more info, well, we have that too. Our Galaxy S6 Review is out. That’s probably a must read. Our One M9 review will be here next week. We also have who knows how many videos of each phone over at our YouTube channel. Go watch them. Here is a pricing breakdown of the Galaxy S6s. Fun stuff. (more…)
Best Buy just kicked off a 2-day sale that includes a couple of note-worthy discounts. First, we have Google’s Nexus 9 with 16GB of storage for just $325 – that’s a $75 discount on a tablet that ranks in the top two for Android at the moment (our review). If tablets aren’t your thing, then maybe a $5 discount on the Chromecast will do. Or a DROID Turbo for $50?
You can see the full list of deals here, or we have individual links to each below.

According to a few tip emails we have received, it appears that a couple Best Buy locations here in the US are accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on Verizon.
From the information we received, a Best Buy location in Williamsville, NY is accepting VZW pre-orders, but other than that, the tips we received only say which state they are in, which were California and New York. We know, it’s vague. (more…)
Now that we have Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge pricing and availability out of the way, it’s time to focus our attention for a minute on the HTC One M9. Like Samsung’s flagships, the One M9 will go up for pre-order tomorrow, March 27, and arrive at most carriers April 10. Since there is only one model, pricing here is pretty straight forward, with a full retail price sitting right around $650 at most places, but there will also be monthly payment options.
Here we go, again. (more…)
Samsung announced this morning that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge go up for pre-order starting tomorrow, March 27, with nationwide availability opening up on April 10. That doesn’t mean that all carriers will have the device available that day, so we thought we would gather all of the information from individual carriers and slap it for you in a single post. Let’s make this easy – well, as easy as it can be with two phones, three colors, three storage sizes, and who knows how many price points and payment plans.
Here we go. (more…)
Best Buy is hosting a really solid 4-hour sale today that slashes $100 off Google’s new Nexus 9 tablet. Both the 16GB and 32GB black models are included, so if you are interested, you can get into a Nexus 9 for $299 or $379, respectively. Most of us always thought the Nexus 9 should have been priced at $299 and $379 out of the gate. In other words, this deal is completely worth it.
Best Buy isn’t just stopping with the tablet itself, though. They are also offering up the Magic or Smart Cover for the Nexus 9 at $29.99 (normally $39) and the Keyboard Folio for $97.49 (normally $129).
Finally, the Chromecast has been dropped to just $29, which is a $5 discount.
The deals are live now and end at 3PM CT.
