    Just as it did on Friday, Amazon will likely refresh all kinds of bargains all day today, some simply being too good to last more than a few hours. Case in point, this $400 Samsung Galaxy S6. Granted, Cricket Wireless sells the exact same phone for Cyber Monday for even less, namely $250. But the prepaid carrier’s offer comes with a couple of strings attached, including the requirement of use only on AT&T’s subsidiary. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S6 you can find on Amazon at four Benjamins is completely without obligations, factory unlocked, and most importantly, backed by a standard US ...

    You didn’t need to be Nostradamus to prophesize Amazon’s eight days of holiday deals would put discounted Kindle and Fire gear front and center, but one of the e-commerce giant’s new tablets was notably absent from the massive yard sale. While the entry-level 7-incher took another 15 bucks off its already crazy low price of $50, the HD 10 stubbornly clutched to its $230 MSRP, only occasionally dropping to a $200 that didn’t quite make for a bargain. But for the next 24 hours or so, the Amazon Fire HD 10 sure looks like a steal at $170 through both the most valuable e-tailer ...

    And the holiday deals keep piling up at possibly the most generous US mobile carrier this Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with the third Cricket special offer in effect before the first two could expire. Yes, you can still get $100 shopping cards when you switch to AT&T’s prepaid daughter operator by December 6, as well as phones like the Motorola Moto E and LG Risio completely free of charge without contractual obligations through January 7. Furthermore, the Samsung Galaxy S6 is now available for what must be an all-time record low of $250, while the Galaxy S5 costs $200, and the GS4 ...

    They say holiday shopping is a marathon, not a sprint. They don’t? Well, they should, and we do. Especially nowadays, with many an electronics merchant hell-bent on taking your money before Thanksgiving, as soon as you wrap up your Turkey Day feast, days after, and then on and around Christmas. Forget the biggest shopping day of the year, as stores, chiefly online, are taken by storm practically throughout November and December. Still, December 1, 2014 was responsible all by its lonesome for a record-breaking $2.68 billion worth of e-sales in the US, and there’s no reason to expect any ...

    As the holiday season gets closer, we get a ton of questions on Twitter over the best tablet or smartphone to buy. Tablets are a very different breed when compared to smartphones because for once, you don't really need a tablet if you already own a computer and a smartphone, and second, because not all tablets are created equal. Smartphones can generally do the same, but some tablets are great for work and suck for play, and others are great for Play and suck for everything else. At this point OEMs are still struggling to find the right mix when it comes to tablets, which is why you'll ...

    You knew it was coming: we've already shared with you plenty of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, but what about Google's offering? In years past we've seen the company step with its own take on the holiday weekend shopping extravaganza, offering Cyber Weekend deals in the Play Store. Well, we're still a couple days away from the weekend, but Google can't hold back any longer, and just revealed this year's spread of deals on apps, in-app purchase, music, TV, and more. Clicking through to the deals, you may be a little dismayed to see Google pimping the savings on in-app purchases first ...

    Never too fond of Black Friday, Lenovo daughter company Motorola always saved the biggest discounts for the Monday after Thanksgiving, colloquially known as Cyber Monday. This year is no exception, although you’re actually looking at “Cyber Week” deals on two of the three Moto items on sale, which are good from November 30 all the way through December 7. But it’s the 24-hour second-gen Moto G blowout that should make the most headlines, given last year’s budget champion will go for a super-palatable $100, 80 bucks off list. Of course, third-party retailers like Amazon have long ...

    As the holiday season gets closer, it's right about that time for a smartphone upgrade in the case of most of you. Years ago this was rather easy as there were only a few players doing things right every year. 2015 is a different animal though, with most OEMs doing an amazing job at raising the bar in design quality and overall user experience. We have flagship devices at mid-range prices, and even new categories like the "Premium mid-range" for those that want elegance on a budget. If you're still on the ropes trying to decide which smartphone is right for you, this guide will hopefully ...

    TVs, smart home monitoring kits, refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves, vacuums, digital cameras, solid-state drives, PCs, Chromebooks, monitors, printers, and various accessories. They’re all on sale from Samsung already for the holidays, some valid all the way through Christmas, others just this week or even ending tomorrow, before Thanksgiving and Black Friday. There are of course three categories of deals we’re most interested in, and fortunately, US-based Samsung fans have plenty to choose from on the discounted smartphone, smartwatch, and tablet fronts. Starting with Android ...

    Let's face it: the sexier (read thinner) our smartphones get, the more battery life becomes an issue. Interestingly, smartphone users (and future, potential owners) would prefer a slightly thicker build if that resulted in longer battery life (or even "functional bulk"), but this appears to be valuable feedback smartphone manufacturers are not taking into consideration (props to the exceptions). There's a trend for thin and light, and, while many don't care, more and more are hoping it will go away, soon. If your daily routine allows you to constantly be within reach of a charger (wall ...

    Separating Black Friday from Cyber Monday deals is apparently a thing of the past, as more and more mobile device manufacturers and retailers aim to stay on the radars of bargain hunters for as long as possible with so-called “Cyber Week” sales. The latest Android OEM to kick off a slew of promos valid from today, November 23, through next Monday, November 30, is ZTE, which continues to spoil its growing US fanbase with unbelievable quality – pricing ratios. Case in point, the Zmax 2, recently launched on AT&T, and now available unlocked for $130 straight from the Chinese ...

    Considering HTC’s poor financial condition, and its recent constant efforts of making devices like the One M9, Desire 626, One A9, Nexus 9, and Re Camera more attractive to the masses, it felt safe to predict bargain hunters would have plenty to savor on and around Black Friday. Forget just a 24-hour promotion on Tuesday, as starting Wednesday, November 25, you’ll have a full week of Cyber deals to choose from. First, the Nexus 9 will be offered at a 40 percent discount between 9 PM PT the day after tomorrow and 9 PM on Friday, November 27. That should bring the stock Android ...

    After one too many leftover turkey sandwiches, topped-off with near-lethal doses of gravy, Thanksgiving – and the lazy weekend that follows it – is over for another year. If you're like many shoppers, you took a break from the food on Friday, bundled up against the cold, and headed out to try snagging yourself a Black Friday deal or two. And while all the Black Friday savings may be behind us, there's one last hurrah to be had, as retailers take one more big stab at getting your holiday shopping dollar, offering today's Cyber Monday savings. Now, some of the deals we mentioned for ...

    Black Friday. In the States those words either conjure up a wondrous land filled with deals, bargains, and amazing prices -- or a horrific panic swimming through a sea of ruthless bodies scrambling to scoop up the severely limited stock of whatever item has enticed those crowds to assemble. All of this follows the one day out of every year that is set aside specifically to remember all that we have and are thankful for. The irony of these two days positioned back-to-back is beyond description. But we're not here to lecture you about your post-holiday buying-binge. No, we're here to help ...

    Cyber Monday Update: We mentioned quite a few Cyber Monday deals last week, like AT&T's basically free-on-contract HTC One X (sadly, not plus) or Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. Beyond that GS2, Samsung's got a few additional offers mentioned on its Facebook page, including savings on a second Samsung device when you buy one through AT&T, and don't forget that those Samsung T-Mobile deals we talked about are still good, including a $100 16GB Galaxy S III. Thanksgiving is now upon us, for those of you living in the US, at least, while for today that means turkey, uncomfortable ...
