Looking for a whole bunch of electronics to blow last Friday’s paycheck on? We’ve got you covered, thanks to a 2-day sale over at Groupon. By using coupon code “SALE3” at checkout, you can save 10% on your orders, up to $50 off. After cruising through their pages and pages of deals, we actually found a handful that are worth considering.
Items like the official Samsung Galaxy S6 wireless charger can be had for $35 (normally $50). The 1st gen Moto X on Verizon is also as cheap as $180 after the discount. But maybe the best deal of all, if you are in the market for home Hi-Fi speakers, is the discount on Sonos’ entire line-up. You can grab a Sonos Play:5 for just $342 (usually $399) or the Play:1 for $171 (usually $199). Sonos products are almost never discounted, and if they are, never to these levels.
There are other deals as well, all quick-linked below.
Again use code “SALE3″ at checkout.
On Friday, we told you that T-Mobile had received “technical approval” on the Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 4 and was planning to push the update to users starting today. Sure enough, it’s happening. A couple of our readers, along with many more in various forums throughout this vast Android-filled internet are all receiving the update.
T-Mobile hasn’t yet posted their own details for the update, but I’m guessing that will happen soon, whenever their community manager wakes up and starts work for the week. (more…)
According to a tweet from T-Mobile’s product guru Des Smith, the Lollipop OTA update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has received technical approval, and should begin seeding out to owners next week. (more…)
Been on the hunt for an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge that works on T-Mobile or AT&T, but isn’t outrageously priced? A current deal running over at eBay may be your best option at the moment. Priced at $799 for the 32GB model, you have the choice of either Sapphire Black or White Pearl, with support for T-Mo and AT&T GSM and LTE bands.
Other unlocked Galaxy S6 Edge sellers are asking for $900 and over, in case you were wondering.
For comparison, a Galaxy S6 Edge purchased outright at AT&T would cost you $815. At T-Mobile you are looking at $780. However, with either those should you decide you want them unlocked, you would not only have to pay full price, but also keep them active at those carriers for up to 60 days at AT&T and 40 days at T-Mobile.
To say that Samsung’s promotional videos for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have been “wild” is probably a bit of an understatement. From unboxings that lead into parkour outings or helicopter escapes from the bad guys, Samsung is kind of all over the place. That’s not to say that these commercials are bad, they are just different. Different is usually OK, right? Anything but a ticking digital crown set to a drum beat. Please.
Anyways, here are a bunch of semi-funny, kind of awkward, “What Comes Next?” commercials from Samsung that give the phone a voice, turn it into some sort of real object, and then let it talk in the 3rd person to describe itself. (more…)
Now that our reviews of the Galaxy S6 (review) and Galaxy S6 Edge (review) are out of the way, it’s time to start thinking about life with each phone in the near future and beyond, and that means getting are hands on things like accessories to either add features and functionality to the phone or protect it. Since the S6 Edge is the most interesting of the two because of its dual-edge display, we wanted to start there. And since the folks at Spigen sent us over a boatload of cases for the device, we may as well show off theirs. (more…)
You all remember Samsung’s line of Gear devices, don’t you? They were the wearables that were originally rushed to market, featured nipple cameras, and only worked with Samsung devices. They also ran Tizen, were re-done a number of times yet never seemed to catch anyone’s attention unless they are a part of an eBay flash sale, and always had questionable designs that weren’t really classic or mainstream. Remember now? Get ready for a new one! (more…)
The latest version of Gear VR, Samsung’s virtual reality headset that was once only available for the Galaxy Note 4, will soon be purchasable by owners of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. Labeled as an Innovator Edition, units will go on sale May 8 for an undisclosed price, but a pre-order for units will take place April 24 (tomorrow) on Best Buy’s website. (more…)
