    As always, choosing where to buy Samsung’s newest flagship Android phone from in the US hasn’t been easy. But the retailer decision was made hard this year for all the right reasons. Carriers tried their best to be the first to ship the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, not to mention the heated freebie wars that Verizon probably won by throwing in a sizzling hot Gear S2 smartwatch instead of the cheaper Gear VR headset. Purchasing a GS7 unlocked and free of network restrictions was similarly difficult, as it took various eBay sellers mere days to start their own discount games. And now, believe ...

    Two weeks back, BlackBerry finally gave us what we'd been asking for for so long (kinda), as the company got around to dialing back the price on its Android-running Priv handset. The unusual smartphone has always been a pretty interesting model, but its top-shelf pricing made it a difficult sell for all but the most ardent Blackberry enthusiasts. A price cut was exactly what the phone needed … but the scant $50 BlackBerry was willing to take off its sticker felt like too little, too late. Luckily, one retailer is stepping up to fulfill our dream of a Priv with a much more wallet-friendly ...

    Although the newest stock Android phones from Google are likely plenty appealing at their normal prices, LG and Huawei don’t want to settle for average sales numbers, constantly reducing their profit margins to get the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P in as many pockets as possible. While Project Fi subscriptions still come with hands down the lowest N5X tag, the 5.2-incher can also be purchased at a discount unlocked, straight from Big G, as well as B&H Photo Video. The latter retailer charges just $300 for a 32GB Nexus 5X configuration after $50 instant savings and another $50 once you apply ...

    While the equivalent of less than two Benjamins buys you incredibly high-end Android slabs from fairly reputable OEMs in countries like China or India, it’s still not easy for power users to shop on such a tight budget stateside. You can get the Huawei Honor 5X at exactly $200 unlocked, a $175 or so third-gen Motorola Moto G if you just can’t wait for its sequel, or… a $160 factory refurbished unlocked GSM Samsung Galaxy S5 from Woot via Amazon. Now, we know what many of you think of pre-owned devices. They’re damaged goods, some literally, and they pose no palpable reliability ...

    Can you believe there was a time, not too long ago, when Verizon was widely considered the stingiest of America’s big four carriers? Big Red’s clearly turned the page recently, with free data for early Android Pay adopters, a super-cool Gear S2 bundled in with GS7 pre-orders, and gratis LG 360 CAM chaperoning the G5 to market. Today, the number one mobile operator stateside also revives its dormant trade-in program, letting folks interested in sizzling hot new handhelds like the Galaxy S7, LG G5, Motorola Droid Turbo 2, or iPhone 6s net nifty $300 discounts. Technically, up to $300, ...

    Samsung, we get it: you're competing with the likes of Google and Apple in the mobile payment game, and going up against companies like that, with the backing of entire smartphone platforms behind them, can be a little intimidating. So it's understandable to an extent how far you're willing to go in order to turn Samsung smartphone users into Samsung Pay users, and keep your numbers looking good. So far, that's meant a lot of promotional offers, hooking new Samsung Pay users up with anything from free hardware, to free gift cards, in an effort to just get them using Samsung Pay at all. ...

    Most smartphone flagships follow a pretty predictable pattern with their pricing over time. First the phone debuts with a relatively high price tag, as the manufacturer attempts to establish just how much their desirable new hardware is worth. Maybe carriers will knock a little off that figure (depending on how alluring the handset is, and correspondingly capable of getting them new subscribers), but the high launch price will likely stick around for a few months, before real, lasting discounts start arriving. And over the course of the next year, the price drops further still, in an ...

    Excited about the Snapdragon 823/6GB RAM-packing Samsung Galaxy Note 6? Well, yeah, but it’s still at least a couple months away. And unlike the Galaxy S7, it might cost a small fortune, bringing far too many substantial upgrades to the table to afford promotions of sorts or bundle deals. Meanwhile, if you’re tight on cash, the Note 5 and even Note 4 are not to be disregarded. Some will call the latter archaic, but like a fine wine, the fall 2014-released 5.7-incher seems to be getting better with time, courtesy of Marshmallow goodies thus far delivered OTA to international variants, ...

    Heftily discounted even before it exited the Google Store, the spring 2015-released LG Watch Urbane was bound to drop further really soon, especially after its LTE-enabled sequel returned to both AT&T and Verizon. Now the time to pull the trigger has definitely come, no remorse or second thoughts. The stylish circular Android Wear device is simply too compelling a purchase at $150 to worry about its advanced age or presumably shoddy software support going forward. Besides, something tells us the wearable piece is still up for one major update before it kicks the bucket. It’s also as ...

    Halfway through their upgrade cycle, assuming Redmond intends to follow a classic one-year release schedule, the convertible Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book apparently need a little sales boost in order to return to the spotlight. Already, we’ve seen the cheaper 2-in-1 Windows 10 machine discounted by $100 in Intel Core i5 configurations, while the “ultimate laptop” was literally just treated to similar rebates when packing the same processor. If you felt Microsoft could do better however and postponed your purchase awaiting heftier savings, these have now arrived, unfortunately only ...

    Gone are the days you needed to wait for months on end to see premium new Android smartphones discounted by a pithy $50 or $100, as 2016 appears to be the year of launch-coinciding deals. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and its Gear VR freebie got the ball rolling, and LG had little choice but to offer the G5 bundled with gratis accessories off the bat too. And now Huawei takes a buyer-incentivizing page from the playbooks of its rivals, partnering with Vodafone to treat future UK-based P9 owners to a mind-blowing promotion. Not only does the Huawei P9 require no upfront payment from Vodafone ...

    Google and LG must be feeling the heat of China-based smartphone manufacturers like Huawei, Xiaomi and Meizu, which are currently engaged in a crazy low-cost Android battle that threatens to take over the Western mobile landscape soon enough. As such, the already affordable Nexus 5X gradually dropped its starting price in recent months, and although Google Store, Best Buy and B&H promotions expired in the meantime, you can still get the stock Marshmallow-powered 5.2-incher on the cheap if you know where to look. Check that, you can purchase the 16GB configuration at its lowest price ...

    There’s no denying the novelty aspect, originality and convenience of the world’s first modular smartphone. But if LG truly wants to play in the same league as Samsung, and pull in record-breaking sales numbers, the G5 needs an occasional discount boost. Especially stateside, where the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have already been treated to a bunch of BOGO deals, hefty unlocked rebates, free Gear VR bundle arrangements, and so on and so forth. LG mainly countered with complimentary accessories on multiple carriers, though Verizon no longer sells the G5 accompanied by a gratis 360 CAM. But ...

    If you weren’t quick enough to qualify for a free Gear VR or Gear S2 with a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge purchase, have nothing to trade in for a $200 Best Buy gift card, and only wanted the one new flagship, Newegg might just be your go-to retailer currently. Well, technically, it’s a third-party merchant dubbed ThePowerSellers that offers the factory unlocked GS7 for an all-time low price of $600, but Newegg gives it its vote of confidence, which probably means a great deal for a lot of people. In the spirit of full disclosure, we did see the non-edgy, microSD-enabled, water-resistant ...

    Even though the global smartphone market has arguably reached a saturation point after many years of constant, spectacular growth, and tablets are slowly heading towards oblivion, Apple remains too stubborn to enforce discounts on iDevices that no longer sell like hotcakes. Thankfully, third-party retailers seem to have promptly realized the just-released 9.7-inch iPad Pro threatens the mainstream popularity of its 12.9-inch sibling, putting the jumbo-sized model on sale already. Amazon currently asks $715 and up instead of $800 for a 32GB configuration, as little as $840 for a 128 gig ...

    It’s been raining discounts and especially bundle deals lately on the original Moto 360, launched back in 2014, even before the smartwatch exited the Google Store, but if you only want the circular timepiece and nothing else, today’s the day you can get the ultimate bargain. Marked down from $300 to $200 by Motorola, and further reduced to $165 and up on Amazon, the Android Wear gizmo fetches a measly Benjamin for the next 20 hours or so at B&H Photo Video. The “catch”? At $100, you relinquish the right to choose your favorite finish, band and fit, having to settle for dark, ...

    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 ...

    April 1 might be a day of horseplay, ridiculousness and embarrassment for many tech companies, but if you can’t appreciate the faux product announcements and silly software introductions flooding the market over the next few hours, maybe you’ll like what Motorola has in store. Out of nowhere, Lenovo’s subsidiary has kicked off a pair of amazing lightning deals on its official US website, both of which will expire at 10:59 am CT later today. The first lets you score the original Moto 360 smartwatch, launched in 2014, completely free of charge. No joke, no catches, no strings attached. ...

    Did all those BOGO deals on possibly the best smartphones in the world feel a little too sweet to last? Well, AT&T has just stopped giving away the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in packs of two, although an equally attractive promotion enters the equation today. Yes, today, April 1, but America’s second largest wireless carrier promises it’s not a prank. If it is, it’s a pretty crappy one, since the strings attached and fine print make the offer truly advantageous only for existing DirecTV subscribers. Folks who’ve ditched traditional cable television providers for Ma Bell’s ...
