    After losing the own-brand low-cost domestic battle to Xiaomi and Huawei, Lenovo is more than keen to keep Motorola phones at the forefront of the sub-$250 US scene at the very least, baking pretty robust specs into the Moto G4 and G4 Plus. Even better, the two respectable mid-rangers are offered at a cool discount right off the bat stateside, although technically, you have a pair of third-party retailers to thank for the limited-time promo. Both Best Buy and B&H Photo Video will throw in complimentary $50 gift cards with Moto G4 and G4 Plus pre-orders, no matter your color of choice ...

    After taking the Moto X Pure Edition to the unlocked market last year, Motorola has decided to open up the fourth-generation Moto G to not just the United States' GSM networks, but to its CDMA ones, too. The Moto G⁴ and Moto G⁴ Plus are both up for pre-orders right now at the Motorola site. Both phones can be customized in Moto Maker and financed through Motorola. As a refresher, the Moto G⁴ has a 5.5-inch, full HD screen in front of a Snapdragon 617 with 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel main camera. This one's starting at $199.99 for 16GB of storage. $249.99 for the Moto G⁴ Plus ...

    It's been a few months since Huawei subsidiary Honor planted its retail foot in the United States. It did so with the Honor 5X, this year's strike in the mid-range sector. But as with all Chinese brands struggling to gain recognition in this country, it'll need major retail trade winds at its head. Enter Best Buy as it has decided to pick up the Honor 5X for sale at 590 of its stores starting June 19 and online right now. It still comes in gray, silver and gold, it's still $199.99 and it still comes unlocked. We're nowhere talking about the Honor V8 or the Honor 8 coming stateside, but you ...

    It’s clearly a matter of perspective if you deem the Apple Watch a blockbuster or lemon, but it’s hard to contest the wearable’s popularity surge on the heels of nationwide discounts. Unfortunately, most of the recent deals have involved entry-level Sport variants or mid-range stainless steel configurations with chintzy Sport bands, making it difficult to buy a truly premium iOS-compatible smartwatch at a fair price. Luckily, Best Buy seemingly got the memo about the budget needs of even Cupertino’s more exigent target audience, selling elegant 38mm “iWatch” models with saddle ...

    Huawei is making a Nexus phone this year that will, in almost all certainty, best its Nexus 6P in the numbers that matter. But the number that matters right now is this one: $80. Best Buy, B&H and Newegg all have sales on the Nexus 6P for you to consider. The 32GB and 64GB at all outlets are getting $80 discounts down to just below $420 and $470 respectively. Best Buy and B&H is also taking $80 off the 128GB version down to $570 while Newegg has a $50 discount, putting it at $599. B&H is bundling $50 store credit and two screen protectors for the phone. Newegg is also offering ...

    ZTE is clearly moving up through the Android OEM ranks, not just in its homeland, but stateside and in international markets like Germany, Russia and Mexico also. The Chinese device manufacturer seeks global fame in the high-end segment, as well as the low-cost, entry-level scene, with a diversified product portfolio including Axon, Nubia, Blade and Zmax families, among others. Of course, you can’t really call a phone like the Zmax 2 entry-level, although it’s super-low-cost right now, setting you back a measly 60 bucks at Best Buy. Originally launched at $150, the 5.5-incher still ...

    Is Memorial Day the new Black Friday? Hopefully not, as we don’t need another occasion for frantic bargain hunters to literally fight to the death for TVs, phones and home appliances they generally already own. Still, it’s sure nice to see HTC, Microsoft and now Best Buy in a giving mood until Monday, May 30, with the latter retailer arguably stealing the other two’s thunder by shaving a cool $200 off a trio of Apple Watches. And no, we’re not talking entry-level Apple Watch Sport configurations for a change, but rather more robust, better-looking and typically, much pricier ...

    Another day, another irresistible Samsung Galaxy S7 deal… or two. Best Buy isn’t content just catering to bargain hunters willing to sign up to a Verizon, AT&T or Sprint contract, lease or device installment plan, also upping the discount ante today for folks looking to get payment out of the way right off the bat. Why commit to a single carrier for a couple of years, and torment yourself with monthly fees when you can cough up as little as $450 upfront, and be free to switch networks at will, or resell your phone sans worrying about upgrade eligibility? The catch here is 450 bucks ...

    While the Android flagship specs battle is a pretty close one between the Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5, and design remains a subjective matter, the winner of this H1 2016 clash of the titans may have been decided by bundle deals and discounts. Granted, LG tried its best to lock horns with Samsung in the promotion department as well, but ultimately couldn’t match the marketing strength of its mighty opponent. The opponent, of course, appears to have the precious support of many leading US retailers and carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Costco, and Best Buy. Best Buy just ...

    With Mother’s Day literally around the corner now, and T-Mobile the only major electronics retailer eager to close a few mutually beneficial deals, it might feel like you’re running out of time to find that perfect, hip, affordable gift. But Best Buy comes to the rescue of at least Apple devotees in the eleventh hour, rebooting its already customary “iWatch” discounts, as well as marking down all iPad mini 4 configurations by a cool $100. The 7.9-incher launched last fall as essentially an iPad Air 2 in a more compact body starts at $300 after the rebates, with 64GB storage ...

    Despite arriving to the Android Wear party a little late, and boldly going for Apple Watch’s jugular with similarly extravagant pricing, the Huawei Watch didn’t take long to develop a cult following of sorts. Still, many prospective buyers held off waiting for discounts and bundle deals, which have become rather frequent recently. Amazon, Best Buy and Newegg are currently selling a number of 42mm configurations at probably their lowest tags yet, with stainless steel frames and various finishes, colors and band types. Of course, the black suture leather strapped model remains the most ...

    Oculus is about to be more visible than ever before this weekend as the company can finally stop going it alone in sales. Its Rift headset will be coming to the Microsoft Store online and Amazon on May 6 at noon Eastern. It'll also hit the brick-and-mortars with 48 Best Buy stores nationwide demonstrating and selling the virtual reality rig starting on May 7 with more locations soon to stock the Rift. Oculus warns of limited inventories as it's already barely keeping up with pre-order volume. If you already did put in a pre-order and are arranging to get a demo and a purchase at a Best ...

    If a 44mm smartwatch makes sense for your wrist, you may interested in either Huawei Watch for Women — one is encrusted with Swarovski zirconia and named "Jewel" while the plainer one is named "Elegant." We got to know them at CES and it was a full month ago that the Google Store started listing, but not selling the two. Google's still not selling them, but Best Buy, Newegg and B&H are to varying extents. With Best Buy, it only has an entry for the "Jewel" on its site, though it looks more like the Elegant — the picture and the price of $449.99 are the tells. Orders will get ...

    If there’s one US-based smartphone manufacturer that can resist the global invasion of ultra-low-cost China-made Androids, it’s definitely BLU Products, the company behind such recent hits as the Energy X LTE, Vivo 5, Vivo XL, and Life One X. Well, there’s also Motorola, but technically, that’s a China-based Lenovo-owned outfit now, and its next Moto G franchise entry looks a little too high-end to be very affordable anyway. Meanwhile, before the third-gen Moto E sees daylight, the BLU Dash X2 and M2 have gone on sale on Amazon with minimal fanfare, the former likely snatching the ...

    What can we say: it's the end of the week. Manufacturers have wrapped up their big hardware announcements for the time being, leaving us to sit back and check out some of the stories that might otherwise find themselves on the back burner. And you know what? There's some pretty good stuff in there. We've already spent the day checking out some pretty neat DIY projects spread across platforms, and have recently been taking an eye to some of the latest deals to hit the mobile world. That's just the sort of thread we're continuing with now, as we learn about a selection of solid discounts on ...

    There’s no doubting or denying it anymore. Samsung’s “next big thing” is a massive box-office hit. But it’s not all due to the return of the microSD slot or water-resistant designs. A main catalyst for the surprisingly rampant demand thus far has been sensible pricing, shrewdly combined with various early promotions, especially stateside. There are still many ways you can buy the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge on the cheap from plenty of carriers and third-party retailers, including BOGO arrangements, compelling bundles and outright $150 discounts through Walmart. Meanwhile, Best Buy just ...

    If you want to own a no-holds-barred Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge in the US, why would you head to Best Buy to get one? Well, there is a limited one-year warranty on these phones as opposed to the ones at, say, Amazon or B&H. But is it worth the $50+ markup? That's right, if you're not going to deal with carrier bloatware from either AT&T or T-Mobile and want a little protection beyond the IP68 water resistance, the international variants of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge with no US warranty are on BestBuy.com right now. Only the Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium versions of the S7 are ...

    The cheapest brand-name Android smartphone available stateside that still has a chance to officially move to OS version 6.0 costs less than ever before at Best Buy. Granted, the 2015 Motorola Moto E has its flaws, and today’s deal comes with its restrictions, but at a measly 30 bucks, this is a top-notch bargain no matter how you look at it. First and foremost, we should remind you the 4.5-incher’s manufacturer technically already denied the second-gen Moto E a Marshmallow promotion in the US. But there’s still time for Motorola, or rather Lenovo, to reconsider, possibly cracking ...

    There have been numerous occasions in the past few months for prospective buyers of the delightful Samsung Gear S2 to jump on the Tizen smartwatch bandwagon without paying an arm and a leg. But if you missed Adorama’s $200 deal, as well as AT&T and Verizon’s free bundle combinations, or felt you could do better, today’s a lovely day to pull the trigger. Both the elastomer-strapped model and the extra-stylish Gear S2 Classic, complete with a black leather band, go for all-time low prices at Best Buy. Namely, $139 and $174 respectively. That’s a whopping $160 and $175 off list, ...

    Tipsters pretty much nailed everything about the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro well in advance of yesterday’s announcement event, but what some of them got wrong was the coming of a rehashed Apple Watch S. Cupertino did have something to showcase on the wearable front, and while the woven nylon band and new strap colors might pique the interest of a few fashionistas out there, it’s hard to get enthused for the $50 Sport discount. Not only is that too little and restrictive, it’s also late to the sales party, since many an Apple Watch variant have gone for $100 off their list prices ...

    Sony didn’t exactly play all its cards right in terms of US availability for the Xperia Z5 trio, launching the high-end phones a little late, a little pricey and a little crippled. Worse yet, the Xperia X trio entered the equation perhaps a little early, though they’re only set to commercially roll out in the summer. Can something still be done to save the Z5, Z5 Compact and Z5 Premium from premature oblivion? Well, “global” Android Marshmallow updates are definitely a first step in the correct direction, and at least as far as the diminutive model goes, the bang for buck factor is ...

    While LG hasn’t been anywhere as quick as Samsung to roll out its newest flagship Android smartphone, you can’t really say the G5 waiting is killing you. It’s still early days, compared to how long it used to take to launch these bad boys worldwide, and you officially have two more weeks to go. What’s two weeks between friends (pun intended), when you’re looking at the world’s first modular handheld, and a bunch of freebies are in store? Namely, LG’s just confirmed, a complimentary battery “pack” and the CAM Plus module in select territories. Unfortunately, it seems ...

    We don’t know what’s gotten into Motorola and its US retail partners lately, but you won’t hear any complaints from professional bargain hunters. How could you when both the Moto X Pure Edition and Moto G (3rd gen) are available at new all-time record low prices for the next 24 to 48 hours? Meanwhile, you probably have a little more time to ponder Best Buy’s latest Moto 360 promotion, netting you gratis $50 gift cards no matter what version of the second-generation Android Wear smartwatches you’re interested in. Still, you shouldn’t overthink things, as already, the ...

    How heartbroken were you to see the $300 Google Nexus 5X deal killed off back in early February? No matter now, as it’s been renewed by B&H PhotoVideo, plus the device-producing search giant and Best Buy. Meanwhile, the larger, more powerful and equally smooth Nexus 6P was first discounted to $450 at B&H on Friday, with Google and Best Buy quickly following suit. Only the latter retailer can do an even better deal, charging $425 for the 32GB stock Android-running phablet, and throwing in a free Speck CandyShell grip case. As far as B&H goes, the bundled $50 gift card is still ...
