DEAL: Nest Thermostat (3rd Gen) is $199 Today at eBay ($50 Off)

The newest version of the Nest Thermostat (that would be the 3rd gen model) has dropped to just $199.99 today at eBay in a daily deal, a $50 discount. Not only is that a hell of a deal on a smart home product that I personally cannot live without, but it’s worth noting that Nest products are almost never discounted. To see the newest Nest at $50 off is worth running to.

As a recap, the Nest Thermostat wants to automate your home and its temperature. It can be controlled via app, but it also learns your patterns and activities to know when to adjust for the perfect cooling or heating. It works with IFTTT, Amazon Echo, and only gets smarter and more useful by the week. Nest even tries to save you money each month on your power bill, though I can’t say that over the years I have noticed a major impact. I’ll let others who own one weigh in on that front.

Again, $50 is a discount we rarely see, so if a smart home thermostat is something you have been considering, now is the time to jump on it.

eBay Receives Update on Android, Includes Navigation and Design Changes

In September of 2015, eBay launched a redesigned app for Android, and for the most part, it seems to be fairing pretty well with Android users. However, more can always be done, so eBay is releasing yet another big update for Android, as well as iOS, bringing more of a native feel for the application. According to eBay, the update is soaked in Material Design, offering changes to navigation, utility, and design.  (more…)

DEAL: Unlocked Galaxy S7 Edge Drops to $628.99 at eBay

So, earlier today, we shared a deal on an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 that was available over on eBay for just $559. That’s still a hell of a deal, but now we have a Galaxy S7 Edge, a phone that is arguably superior and a fan favorite around these parts, in the same unlocked capacity, for just $628.99.

Come on, that’s just not fair. This phone is well over $700 at US carriers and is inching close to $800 at some.  (more…)

DEAL: Unlocked Galaxy S7 is Just $559 at eBay

During launch week, you could buy an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 for $599, a hell of a deal at the time. Here we are a month later and that same phone can now be had for $559. At most US carriers, you are looking at close to $700 for this phone, so you can see right there that this phone is being sold at a substantial discount.

This is the model (SM-G930F) that I own and use on a daily basis. It’s an international unit that runs an Exynos octa-core, which most across the internet would agree crushes the Snapdragon 820 variant, both in terms of performance and battery life. It’s the version that we wish Samsung would have released in the US. Other than the processor switch, this is the same great Galaxy S7 that you know.  (more…)

DEAL: Moto 360 (1st Gen) is Just $89.99 Today at eBay

I don’t know that I would recommend that just anyone rush out and buy the original Moto 360 these days, now that the watch is closing in on its 2-year anniversary, but if you have been curious about smartwatches and their supposed usefulness, and are ready to dive in with little investment, we have a deal for you today. For just $89.99, you can buy the Moto 360 (1st gen) over at eBay. $90! With free shipping!

Keep in mind that the original Moto 360 launched with pretty dated specs (namely the processor), so in 2016, it’s going to struggle some. With that said, it’s still arguably the best looking smartwatch ever released and will still work with your current phone. It’s also just $89.99…which, again, is nuts.

The seller has all sorts of combinations available, including those on leather or metal bands. He says that they are in “new other” condition, which could just mean that they won’t ship to you in original packaging. Or it could mean something else. Either way, something to consider.

DEAL: Nexus 5X Back on eBay for Just $239.99 ($110 Off)

Another laughably low price is back and attached to the Nexus 5X over at eBay today. For just $239.99, you can own one of Google’s newest smartphones and get on with your Android N or update-first-having self. In case you were wondering, that’s a solid $110 discount before even factoring in the free shipping.

Like the deal a couple of weeks back, this 16GB Nexus 5X is the Euro model H791. That’s worth noting because even though it will still work in the US – on T-Mobile and AT&T – it won’t have the universal connectivity on Verizon and Sprint as well.

DEAL: Nexus 5X 16GB is Just $229 Today at eBay ($120 Off)

The Nexus 5X, the smaller new Nexus from Google that lives on the affordable side, is available today at eBay for a ridiculously low price of $229. That’s $120 off, by the way.

This particular phone is version H791, which is actually the international or euro version, so that means you probably can’t use this phone on Verizon or Sprint. It’s essentially an unlocked GSM phone, with all supported bands for T-Mobile and AT&T. Sorry, CDMA folks.

Still, if you want a Nexus and are on AT&T or T-Mobile, talk about a hell of a deal.
