Deals, deals, deals – expect a lot of them over the next few days. Deals like today’s over at eBay, where you can buy a refurbished HTC One (M8) for $369, will be flooding your Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ timelines.
For this particular deal, you are looking a “manufacturer refurbished” unit in grey, silver, or gold, at again, just $369. The device listing says that it is an AT&T unit that has been SIM unlocked, so it should technically work on most GSM networks. With that said, the AT&T model of the One (M8) isn’t always that friendly with T-Mobile’s network, so keep that in mind before purchasing. (more…)
If you missed out on yesterday’s ridiculously good deal for a brand new unlocked Moto X (1st gen) for $199, you have another shot at an equally impressive deal today. Priced at just $269, you can walk away with a brand new Moto X (1st gen) Developer Edition that includes 32GB of storage and should work on either T-Mobile or AT&T, thanks to its global GSM bands. The Developer Edition also sports a special edition black and white colorway, with “Developer Edition” branded on its lower backside.
This original Moto X may be over a year old, but at $279, this would be a great phone for someone in a pinch that doesn’t have $600 to spend.

If you were looking for a ridiculously good deal on a brand new smartphone, a smartphone that we called the best of 2013, look no further than the deal on last year’s Moto X that has been running for a couple of days at eBay. For $199, you can have a brand new Moto X that is unlocked and without a contract. This is model XT1053, which is the unlocked T-Mobile version, although it should work on AT&T without issue.
I know it’s a year old and there is a new Moto X replacing it, but at $199, why not?
Update: Deal is done.
At $249.99, today’s deal on last year’s Moto X is a steal. Sure, the device may be over a year old, but take a look at what AT&T announced this morning – last year’s Moto G LTE for $199 at full retail. This original Moto X still tops the Moto G in every single category and is arguably better than a lot of 2014’s phones. It has a better display than the Moto G, better camera, better overall design, and was at one time, a flagship phone that we dubbed the best Android phone of 2013.
In today’s deal over at eBay, you can grab the GSM unlocked version (XT1053) in brand new condition, with no carrier branding, in either black or white for $249. The device supports both T-Mobile and AT&T bands of GSM and LTE, so you should have no trouble connecting it. The deal also includes free shipping.
On a related note, the Galaxy S4 Active can also be picked up for as little as $299. Another great deal.

NewEgg’s eBay shop is hosting a deal today on the Nexus 7 (2013) with 16GB of storage that is one of the lowest prices you will see. At $129 for a “manufacturer refurbished” unit, you probably won’t find a better deal than this on last year’s Nexus tablet. Actually, you may not see many more of these deals with the Nexus 9 close to release – we would imagine that resellers are going to do whatever they can to blast through remaining inventory on last year’s model, if they haven’t already.
If you do not anticipate a certain 9-inch tablet will suit your fancy, you could do worse than Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S 10.5. Normally priced a bit above most Android tablets, a refurbished 16GB in Titanium Bronze model is on sale at eBay for $379.99, or 30% off retail ($549.99). (more…)
Update: The Nexus 7 (2013) deal has returned, once again. With a new Nexus 9 tablet on the horizon, we may not see deals like this for much longer.
Still haven’t picked up the Nexus 7 (2013) after the countless deals that we have shared? Well, here is another one. Today’s deal includes the 32GB variant for $159.99, which is more than $100 off the original retail price. The device is “manufacture refurbished,” but you know what that means by now – the manufacturer has had a chance to work out defects or kinks.
Not much else to say with this one; you have seen this deal countless times.
Even though it has been available for months, longer than most 2014 flagship phones, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is still a force to be reckoned with. With its industry-leading Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 801 processor, and great camera, the Galaxy S5 still stands up nicely to other top-tier devices introduced over the last couple of months. If you haven’t been moved by the new Moto X or LG G3, and the Galaxy S5 has remained on your radar, today may be the day to consider pulling the trigger on one.
A current eBay daily deal has the AT&T version (SM-G900A) in black, white, or gold with 16GB of storage for just $429.99. That’s off-contract of course. The device’s description says that it is unlocked and should work on both AT&T and T-Mobile. It does appear to be missing one of T-Mobile’s GSM bands, though, so your best bet would be to attach it to AT&T to get full LTE and GSM connectivity. (more…)
