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.
Regularly priced at $165, you can grab a 2-pack of Lexar 128GB microSD cards for only $89, usable in any smart device that supports expandable storage. This includes the Moto X Pure Edition, Galaxy S7, and upcoming LG G5. If that much mobile storage is not needed, or you don’t feel like blowing that much dough, a 2-pack of 64GB cards is available for $39. (more…)
The Nexus 5X recently received a supposed jank-fixing update that we have been waiting for since the phone first launched. The jury is still out on whether or not it did improve overall performance, but a number of readers have already noticed improvements to the camera launch and general UI smoothness. Assuming the update has improved the phone, you probably shouldn’t ignore today’s deal on it over at eBay.
For $249, you can own the 16GB model, or you can jump up to $299 and get into the 32GB model. That’s a solid $100 off of each. Each listing also includes free shipping.
Who knows how long the listing will last, so don’t hesitate if you are in need of a new Nexus that won’t kill your budget.

Of course, just hours after I took Samsung to task for not offering unlocked phones here in the US, we have eBay sellers pop-up with pretty incredible deals on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge that will surely satisfy our unlocked needs.
At $599, you can own the unlocked Galaxy S7 (SM-G930F), or you can bump up to Galaxy S7 Edge (SM-G935F) for $699. That’s around $100 off of each when compared to US carriers. For example, Verizon sells the S7 at $672 and AT&T at $695. (more…)
Nest’s newest Thermostat, the 3rd gen model with bigger display, is discounted for the day by $50 over at eBay to $199.99. That’s a big deal and worth considering because Nest products are almost never discounted. I think we saw a deal around Black Friday, but other than that, this is just not a line of products that ever sees many price drops. (more…)
Since I appear to have been moments late on sharing that Jaybird Bluebuds X deal from earlier, here are three other solid deals worth considering today. You can grab last year’s Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) or Galaxy S6 Edge (SM-G925V) with 32GB storage for as little as $399, or the LG Watch Urbane for just $179, all from eBay.
The Galaxy S6 that’s on sale is an international unlocked GSM unit, so it will work without a hiccup on T-Mobile or AT&T. The S6 Edge is Verizon’s version, so you should stick with using it on Verizon’s network if you care about an LTE connection. Otherwise, you could get some connectivity on AT&T without LTE. The Watch Urbane is the Watch Urbane, an LG watch that is mostly ugly, but should perform well still and would be a good first Android Wear device at this price (here is our review).
All three deals include free shipping. (more…)
Wow, you can buy the Nexus 5X with 16GB of storage for just $269 over at eBay today. The deal is running through a daily deal, so don’t expect it to last long.
The Nexus 5X may not be the flagship Nexus that the 6P is, but it’s still a very capable Android phone that will see updates faster than almost any other phone and should only get better as Google pushes bug fixes to it. To read up on all there is to know about the 5X, our review can be found here.
The deal includes a couple of colors (for now) along with free expedited shipping.
On Sunday, Samsung is going to announce their next flagship, the Galaxy S7 (and S7 Edge). It may even go on sale by March 11. But what if you need a new phone yet don’t want to shell out full price for this year’s new hotness? Maybe you have a limited budget and are fine with last year’s Samsung flagship (all of which are still great phones, by the way). Well, take a look at the deal today on Verizon’s Galaxy S6 Edge with 128GB of storage. Thanks to a discount at eBay, you can own this version for just $499.
If you were to buy the Galaxy S6 Edge with 128GB from Verizon today, it would cost you $900. Nine hundred dollars. So yeah, the top of the line S6 Edge is available right now at a $400 discount. That’s a pretty damn good deal.
This is the Verizon model, though, so it will work best on Verizon’s network. The listing claims that it is GSM unlocked, but you won’t get LTE outside of spotty band 4 on T-Mobile or AT&T.
