    Apple has to stop the free fall of its tablets somehow, caused by general market saturation and demand decline, as well as Cupertino’s recent lack of innovation, and steady Microsoft Surface rise. Just making the iPad larger, then smaller again, clearly doesn’t cut it, and while Tim Cook refuses to lower the quality bar or simply slim down profit margins, desperate times call for desperate measures as far as third-party sellers are concerned. A couple of months after charging “only” $760 instead of $950 for a 128GB Wi-Fi-limited iPad Pro with a 12.9-inch screen, top-rated eBay ...

    Taking a cue from its more respected and popular rivals, which almost always offer great deals on old flagship devices when new ones enter the scene, Asus has a surprise in store for the next 21 hours (and counting) for its cash-strapped fans unimpressed with the $250 ZenFone 3. The 128GB ZenFone 2 Deluxe Special Edition, brought to the US last November at $400, is available today only on Amazon with a sweet $130 discount. In addition to accommodating all the digital content you could ever need, both internally and on microSD cards, this ZE551ML configuration on sale also packs an ...

    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 ...

    Even Microsoft’s most hardcore fans and health nuts in general have to admit Redmond’s second-gen fitness band, while better than the original in every single way, felt a little on the pricey side at $250 back in the day. Luckily, MS didn’t take long to realize that itself and amended the situation by first shaving 50 bucks off retail. The temporary promo rapidly turned into a routine thing, and then the Microsoft Band 2 lowered the asking price further, to a much more palatable $175. That was initially supposed to be a limited-time affair as well, but after expiring in late March, ...

    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 ...

    In a world where convertibles appear to be gradually eclipsing the popularity of both traditional laptops and tablets, Microsoft isn’t afraid to constantly reduce its Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book profit margins if that means gaining the upper hand over Apple in terms of market share. Of course, it’s not like these 2-in-1 Windows 10 beasts are sold at a loss for $850 and up and $1,350 and up respectively, so the Memorial Day sale currently ongoing on Redmond’s US e-store is a win-win situation. For a limited time only, i.e. until Monday, May 30, select configurations of the two ...

    Deemed “the new flagship to beat for battery life” after some impressive-looking endurance tests, and “the new choice for the power warrior” following our rigorous complete review process, the Huawei Mate 8 unfortunately never properly launched stateside. While we can’t say we’re surprised to see US carriers turn a cold shoulder to a China-made beast, especially one with a niche-oriented 6-inch screen in tow, it was certainly disappointing that Huawei chose to keep the phablet limited to its homeland and European shores in unlocked form as well. Leave it to specialized ...

    Today’s obviously not Tuesday (thank God for that), and we haven’t seen a decent HTC Hot Deal in a while anyway, but Memorial Day is only 72 hours away, with the Taiwanese device manufacturer once again in celebratory mood. For a limited time, i.e. until Monday, May 30, at 11:59 pm PT, the HTC 10 on the OEM’s US website is bundled with a complimentary Re Camera. The promo is of course good for the unlocked phone, as well as T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint-specific variants, all of which will set you back the typical $700, only this time with a tiny 1,080p, 16MP action camera included. ...

    It’s sure not easy to keep the Snapdragon 808-powered BlackBerry Priv in the limelight with the recent onslaught of 820 flagships from much more popular OEMs nowadays like Samsung, LG or even HTC, but the unique selling proposition of a physical QWERTY keyboard, industry-leading security, silky smooth software and reasonable pricing might well do the trick. Once upon a time (not that long ago) sold for a whopping $700, the financially struggling Canadian company’s Android pioneer gradually dropped to $600, $500, $450, $400 in the past few months, and now a measly $380. There’s no ...

    Google Play Music is probably not the world’s most popular online audio streaming service, and somehow, it doesn’t feel like a solid contender for second or third place either. But when it comes to bundle deals and free trials of its premium All Access subscription tier, the Android, iOS and Windows-compatible app often towers comfortably above both Spotify and Apple Music. Case in point, a new limited-time offer letting you enjoy the service’s full library of tracks and albums, as well as ad-free YouTube with offline viewing, at only 99 cents covering 90 whole days. It’s also ...

    In case you needed further proof that the OnePlus 3 is nigh (under three weeks away, apparently), and set to cost even less than its predecessor upon launch, the China-based company responsible for so many great deals these past couple of years just outdid itself with a fresh round of global smartphone discounts. Wherever available, the OnePlus 2, X and One are significantly cheaper than before, and since there’s no expiration date attached to the super-attractive promos, you may want to hurry. Especially with invitations thrown out across the board. Stateside, if you visit the OEM’s ...

    Is it already too late for the first ever Windows 10 Mobile flagships to break the flagging OS into the mainstream scene? It sure seems like it, and it certainly doesn’t help that Microsoft’s software focus is directed elsewhere, and the high-end Lumia device family might as well be dead, with a business-centric Surface Phone the only Lumia 950/950 XL “sequel” you can probably root for. That being said, the next few months will likely see 950-series pricing absolutely collapse, starting today with a $150 XL discount offered stateside and up north. Don’t pay any attention to the ...

    As hard as Samsung’s many US retailer and carrier partners might be trying to make the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge feel affordable with frequent BOGO deals, various freebies and outright discounts, these remain fairly prohibitive buys for some Android enthusiasts on tighter budgets. Outdoorsy folks probably feared things would get even worse as far as the Galaxy S7 Active was concerned, seeing as how AT&T is once again rumored to win exclusive rights to sell the rugged flagship, and a massive battery will almost certainly be squeezed into the 185-gram 5.1-inch package. But Ma Bell inserted ...

    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 mobile technology continues to advance at a pretty steady pace, so that today’s flagship smartphones can easily top their predecessors in every single way that counts, thriving competition and declining global sales help keep prices in check. In fact, if you look closely, you’ll notice high-end Android retail costs have actually dropped in recent years instead of going up, as the Galaxy S7, for instance, can be currently found for less than what the S6 fetched this time last year. Namely, the latest “next big thing” hit an all-time low price of $530 a couple of weeks ago at ...

    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 ...

    The good 'ol days of getting wireless chargers and a couple of Benjamins just for starting a mobile payment habit are long gone. Even this new initiative to get users onto Samsung Pay doesn't even compare to the last one that offered $30 towards some retailers. In Samsung's "Summer Perks for New Samsung Pay Users," it seems that said new Samsung Pay users will only get $20 of credit to either Toys'R'US, Nike, California Pizza Kitchen, Banana Republic (whoa, really?) or Regal Entertainment. Obviously, you'll need a top-of-the-line Samsung Galaxy phone from the past couple of generations ...

    You could play whack-a-mole with the number of buy-one-get-one-free deals the carriers are pulling off these days. But that AT&T, though. Yeah, it's got everyone beat right now with the number of phones available for the BOGO-ing. Just watch out for what you need to do to get in the door with this deal. So, here's the skinny: New customers will need to get at least two lines while existing customers will need to add a line. Customers must buy two phones from the same manufacturer. Both phones have to be paid through installment plans, but the free one (we suppose the one worth less ...

    Do you BOGO? Well, you should, as there’s no cheaper way these days to nab a current-gen Android or iOS powerhouse. Make that two, since the very nature of a buy-one-get-one-free promotion compels you to pick up a pair of identical or similar phones, the most affordable of which is offered at no charge. We’ve seen all the big four US carriers turn the BOGO tap on and off for the iPhone 6s, Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 over the past few months, and Sprint once again wants to “keep your family connected over the busy vacation season”, presumably as it cooks up its second farewell to ...

    Available in Korea since March 31, the US from April 1, and most other major global markets for at least a few weeks, the LG G5 took an unusually long time to reach India, which has recently surpassed the US as the country with the second largest smartphone user base in the world. As such, it felt vital for both the short and long-term box-office prospects of the modular device to stop wasting time, and cater to the hundreds of millions of prospective India-based buyers with a relatively low price. Unfortunately, we still don’t know how much nation-leading retailer Flipkart intends to ...
