    While it finally shouldn’t take long now to exchange your potentially explosive Galaxy Note 7 with a safe-to-use, clearly marked new S Pen-enabled dual-edged phablet, it’s hard not to at least consider a less controversial alternative. Ideally, a cheaper one too, like perhaps Samsung’s own previous flagship models. “Previous” or “past generation” is of course a bit of an overstatement, since the Galaxy S7 Edge so obviously inspired the Note 7, which merely offers an extra included stylus, iris scanner and 0.2 inches more in display diagonal. There’s a much less fickle 3,600 ...

    Thinking of “skipping the sevens”, despite the new iPhones arguably looking less disappointing in real life than all those ominous pre-release reports, and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 exchanges finally overcoming initial hiccups? The “different” and “better” Moto Z modular family is just about ready to go wide stateside after a short period of Verizon exclusivity, although Sprint customers are still out of luck. The unlocked Z and Z Play can only be pre-ordered with GSM network compatibility from Best Buy or Amazon, which means you’re free to activate either one on AT&T or ...

    The following piece of news comes out of multiple first-hand accounts posted to Reddit — it's a forum of questionable repute, especially after when Samsung shot down a report about Galaxy Note 7 remote deactivations. But it seems like if there's any way to tell that we're on the downhill of Samsung's recall process of some phones with explosive batteries, it's with the start of a status quo exchange program. Those who have registered with Best Buy to get notified of when new, safe Galaxy Note 7 units were available have started getting the notifications. However, when customers arrived ...

    With the Galaxy Note 7 currently not safe to use, and dependable new inventory for folks who didn’t prematurely buy an explosive original variant still needing several weeks to become available, there’s little reason to pick up the “New” Samsung Gear VR headset, aka “Latest Edition.” As long as you plan to hold on to your micro USB-supporting Galaxy Note 5, S6 Edge+, S6, S6 Edge, S7 or S7 Edge, you might as well save a few bucks and get the first Gear VR Consumer Edition, model number SM-R322. Granted, its field of view is limited to 96 degrees, compared to 101 for the ...

    Did you pre-order your very own swim-proof, GPS-including copy of the Apple Watch Series 2 yet? Still on the fence about it, seeing as how it starts at an extravagant $370? Not too keen to cough up $270 either on a Series 1 with a modest Sport band, dual-core processor and all? Then maybe Best Buy can tempt you with a one-of-a-kind, unprecedented deal on the original Apple Watch Sport in both 38 and 42mm sizes. The smaller model, which was launched at a whopping $350 last year, officially discounted to $300 this March, and unofficially to $250 and even $230 in recent months by several ...

    See, Motorola, it’s not always wise to gratuitously take jabs at rivals, even when making a relatively fair point in the process. Distracted by this, we were very close to ignore a pretty sweet new deal offered for Moto Z Droid and Z Force Droid purchases made directly through the manufacturer’s US e-store. Namely, every 5.2mm-slim device now comes with a free bundled Incipio OffGrid Power Pack Moto Mod, while the slightly thicker, more robust, larger battery-packing and 21MP rear cam-sporting 5.5-incher will ship alongside a complimentary JBL SoundBoost speaker add-on. No catches, no ...

    So-called selfie smartphones have come a long way in the past couple of years, despite many expecting the trend of proficient front-facing cameras to rapidly die down. It’s hardly unusual nowadays to take self-portraits with 13MP “secondary” snappers, so the summer 2015-released Sony Xperia C4 may not feel like a selfie expert anymore. Still, the 5.5-incher’s 5-megapixel front cam sports Exmor R technology and LED flash illumination, while the 13MP rear unit in turn has LED flash going for it, as well as HDR, autofocus, Full HD video recording, 4x digital zoom, and f/2.0 aperture. ...

    You wouldn't actually want to swim with any earbuds as water and the ear canal don't make for great partners in resonance, but the point is that fitness audioware company Jabra has some new wireless earbuds you can submerge in water. Like Samsung's Gear IconX, the Jabra Elite Sport are tiny little buds that plop right into your ear for you to listen to music or take calls with. Sound output has been refined with the help of hearing aid firm ReSound to ensure the buds' "medical-grade credentials". Each bud has two microphones — one to take your voice during calls and the other to cancel ...

    Samsung has not provided a specific date of availability nor has it spilled the prices of its latest wearables, the Gear S3 classic and the Gear S3 frontier. Both of them come in Bluetooth-only and LTE-connected flavors as well, so carriers are bound to be wanting in on the action. Well, AT&T, carrying the 3G version of the Gear S2 and first to grab at the LTE-enabled LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition, is getting Samsung's first LTE wearable. Specifically, the Death Star mentions the Gear S3 frontier with 4G LTE as part of its future lineup. Ma Bell also has software value-adds to tell you ...

    If India doesn’t want them, America will probably take every last one of them, and ask for more. We’re talking of course about refurbished, aka pre-owned, iPhones, on sale today at Best Buy, no doubt in (extremely) limited quantities. Even more specifically, you’re looking at mint-condition, like-new iPhone SE units here, available for as little as $270 in a full range of snazzy paint jobs, with Verizon, AT&T and Sprint compatibility, as well as one-year warranties fulfilled by the retailer whose “Geek Squad” restored the devices to their original, out-the-box state. 270 ...

    Well, that didn’t take long. Samsung globally launched the high-end Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones in four "standard" colors way back in March, then added pink gold (not rose gold) to the paint job selection just a month later, but only in Korea. Today, after an excruciating, seemingly hopeless waiting period, US-based fans of pretty, stylish yet somewhat tacky gadgets are finally treated to a happy ending to their miserable saga. Starting August 28, Best Buy and only Best Buy will be stocking the swankiest GS7 and S7 Edge flavors stateside, selling the two unlocked and fully ...

    For its 50th anniversary, Best Buy on Friday kicked off a fitting 50 deals only supposed to last 50 hours. These covered a wide range of tech departments, from smartphones to smartwatches, tablets, laptops, HDTVs and so on, but in all honesty, they felt somewhat underwhelming on the whole, at least as far as mobile gadget enthusiasts are concerned. After digging a little deeper however, we’ve discovered one unprecedented bargain, though being marked as a “special anniversary deal” on BB’s official website suggests it could expire in mere minutes. On the bright side, it’s also ...

    Amazon's logo might represent the things you can get ranging from A to Z, but in order to get some big benefits on one of the company's own products, you best be believing the "B". Both Best Buy and Bed Bath & Beyond (yep, seriously) are selling the Alexa-powered Amazon Echo and Tap speakers for $50 off. The Echo stands at $130 while the Tap is at $80 for the time being — though we don't know how long this time is. Amazon is still selling these smart speakers at full price.

    If you were tempted by B&H’s recent Nexus 6P + Garmin Vivofit 3 bundle deal, which by the way is no longer on the table, but only wanted Google and Huawei’s jumbo-sized phone, ideally at a lower price, you’re in luck today. Amazon and Best Buy take a cool $150 off the 5.7-incher’s list tag in 64GB configuration, with a US warranty included, and if you hurry, you may even be able to choose your favorite color. The former e-tailer has the silver flavor in stock, ready to ship as early as tomorrow, while the gold one requires an “extra 1-2 days to process.” BB promises the ...

    Has the "buy one, get one free" offer run its wear? T-Mobile was said to have such a campaign planned for the Galaxy Note 7 as soon as it arrived at its stores. Fast forward to today and we have something that probably won't need a new line or upgrade to obtain. 9to5Mac is reporting from its two sources that Samsung is supplying its new Gear Fit 2 fitness smartwatch as free bundle promotions for Sprint and T-Mobile to carry out. Then again, multiple campaigns can simultaneously apply to a single device. If a smart step counter isn't in your taste, Sprint may offer a 256GB microSD card. ...

    Can’t wait for the typical holiday season to make your favorite gadgets affordable enough for a sensible upgrade or two? Between Amazon’s recent Prime Day, various sweet eBay deals, frequent Newegg and B&H promos, and Best Buy’s latest blowout sale, it’s starting to feel like every day this summer is Black Friday. On that note, BB actually calls its today and tomorrow-only discount event Black Friday in July, which sounds about right, at least as far as the 9.7-inch Apple iPad Pro is concerned. The middle-sized iOS tablet goes for $125 off list in nearly all possible ...

    The hunt is already on for the best Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid Edition deals available nationwide, as the two new Verizon-exclusive “SnapPhones” need all the help they can get to compete against the world’s first modular handheld and the ultimate jack of all trades. Enter Best Buy, which joins Big Red’s highly anticipated launch pre-order party with something much sweeter than 40 percent off “every other Mod.” There are several perks to be had at the third-party retailer, starting with a free JBL SoundBoost speaker attachment no matter your method of purchasing either ...

    Missed the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pay just $404 on Amazon Prime Day for a brand-new 64GB Nexus 6P? Believe it or not, Best Buy can now hook you up with a deal that’s even sweeter… in a way. Granted, this is the 32GB variant of the Google and Huawei-co-manufactured 5.7-incher you’re looking at, and since there’s no external microSD storage expansion option, you’ll need to keep your digital hoarding in check. Also, the all-time low price of $319 is only good on the aluminium flavor, with the graphite setting you back an extra 55 bucks, and the matte gold a grand total of ...

    Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, Newegg and, of course, ZTE’s own US e-store are finally accepting pre-orders for the self-described “first Android smartphone to break away from other flagships with specs that outperform rivals at an unbeatable price.” Said price is $400 after all, not $450, as previously believed, which is indeed pretty amazing for a 5.5-incher that “looks and feels premium at every angle”, supporting Google’s Daydream mobile VR platform off the bat (well, technically, starting in the fall), and packing the best internals currently available. Maybe not a Snapdragon ...

    Normally, we’d not only be surprised to see a top-tier Android smartphone manufacturer mark down a flagship model mere weeks after its commercial debut. We’d also be psyched to get in on the unusual deal of a lifetime. The thing is, while opinions are split regarding the appeal and quality of the Xperia X and X Performance, everyone seems to agree the two 5-inchers started off at least slightly overpriced. Hence, the best case scenario is the non-Performance X now provides decent bang for your buck following a nationwide $50 reduction. By no means would we call the Snapdragon 650/3GB ...

    Well, that didn’t take long. A mere 24 hours after putting its unlocked Android smartphone-cherishing fans stateside out of their misery, Samsung just kicked off the very first SM-G930U deal. Technically, Best Buy did, but probably not without the device manufacturer’s explicit blessing, so be sure to thank them both in your prayers before going to sleep tonight. First things first, you don’t want to hesitate, or put off an acquisition here, as the US unlocked Galaxy S7 feels like a bargain all of a sudden. It still requires you cough up a hefty $670 upfront, but a nice $75 portion ...

    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.

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 ...
