    How do you make up for totally bungling the launch of a flagship phone awaited by many for a full 12 months, as well as effectively endangering millions of people’s lives, homes, personal and public property? Issuing full refunds for potentially explosive Galaxy Note 7 units sold worldwide, no questions asked, was literally the least Samsung could do, alternatively offering to ship patient buyers replacement devices, hopefully with harmless batteries inside. That latter exchange will of course take a little while, which is why several US carriers can instantly hook you up with a Galaxy ...

    The magnificent seven is here (no, not Antoine Fuqua’s unnecessary reimagining of Akira Kurosawa’s classic), and we all know what that means for previous-generation iPhones. Discounts. Small but meaningful. EOLs. And, surprise, surprise, storage upgrades. No more 16GB iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, with 32 gigs now the bare minimum offered to buyers of the last traditional headphone jack-including iOS handheld. Despite its storage bump, the 2015-released, non-water-resistant 4.7/5.5-inch duo also gets a nice starting price trim, from $650 and $750 respectively to $550 and $650 outright. ...

    With all the recent high-end Moto Z-series releases, Moto Mods, and the customizable G4 and G4 Plus providing such solid bang for your buck, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if you forgot about the even lower-cost, humbler Moto G4 Play completely. Lenovo did make minimal fuss when unveiling it alongside its bigger, more competent brothers, but four months in, the entry-level Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-based 5-incher finally seizes its 15 minutes of fame by commercially launching stateside. Widely so, believe it or not, i.e. through Motorola’s US e-store, as well as Amazon and B&H ...

    ‘Tis the season to not only excitedly await the commercial rollout of a new wave of more powerful, energy-efficient high-end smartwatches, but also hunt for previous-generation wearable bargains. Granted, the ZenWatch 3 arguably holds a major style advantage over both its rectangular predecessors, with a game-changing Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor under the hood as well, but at the end of the day, at least beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Perhaps you prefer your intelligent wrist-worn devices to look squarer, more futuristic, and less like everyday classic watches. Or maybe ...

    Discounts ahead of highly anticipated product announcement events? That doesn’t sound like Apple’s modus operandi at all, yet two days before the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are finally brought to light, Cupertino’s music streaming service becomes cheaper than ever. Of course, that’s not as simple as it sounds, and you can’t just sign up to a new $8 a month Apple Music subscription. Instead, gift cards, both physical and virtual, are available starting today at $99, covering one year of premium, no-ad, unlimited tunes for your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac, Windows PC, or Android ...

    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. ...

    With so many solid upper mid-range or even full-blown high-end phones from increasingly reliable OEMs like ZTE, Huawei or OnePlus sold for $400 tops stateside, valid warranties, LTE connectivity and all, it’s pretty hard to keep a straight face while calling a $450 Sony Xperia X listing a bargain. Sure, the Snapdragon 650-powered 5-incher was initially attached a $550 unlocked tag… just a few months ago, of which a number of authorized sellers shaved a measly 50 bucks off back in early July. A $100 discount is therefore… something, and BuyDig tries to further sweeten the deal with a ...

    Less than 24 hours after Fitbit officially announced a pair of long overdue new entry-level wearable devices at seemingly reasonable $100 to $150 prices, Amazon quietly (and incredibly) decided to undercut the activity tracker manufacturer’s pre-order rates. These are the retailer’s own Fitbit Charge 2 and Flex 2 listings, mind you, and Amazon will take care of delivery when the products arrive, with no shady third-party sellers involved. What’s the catch then? Well, we wouldn’t exactly call it a catch, but while Fitbit expects to start shipping the second-gen Charge “within a ...

    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 ...

    Verizon may want to take a page from EE’s playbook, as its UK-leading wireless service provider counterpart doesn’t seem to know the meaning of the expression “resting on one’s laurels.” In addition to not ruining the out-the-box Galaxy Note 7 user experience, EE today inaugurates a unique Apple Music offer to keep rivals O2, Vodafone, and 3 at bay. Both new and upgrading pay monthly iOS and Android customers are treated to six free months of Cupertino’s immensely popular audio streaming app, double the standard complimentary trial around the world. Only Australia’s Telstra ...

    Some believe it’s finally worth buying, others were recently reminded the iPad Pro has nothing on it, while many probably thought about purchasing it, but couldn’t justify the extravagant spending. Well, if you’re part of the latter category, and found the Surface Pro 4 compelling but a little rich for your blood, it might be time to pull the trigger on eBay before it’s too late. The Windows 10-powered 12.3-inch convertible tablet (keyboard dock not included) sets you back $650 in a 128GB i5 configuration, or $895 with the same Intel processor inside, and double the SSD capacity. ...

    Whether you’re convinced wearable devices are the next big thing, or still doubt their practicality but could be swayed into giving them a shot at the right price, this is hands down the best time to buy yesteryear’s top smartwatches. The Huawei Watch, Moto 360 and Samsung Gear S2 have never been cheaper than on the eve of their follow-up models’ introductions, with the rotating bezel-sporting Tizen bad boy in particular feeling like an absolute steal at 100 bucks. $99.99, to be specific, in limited quantity from a trusted eBay seller named Guarantee Cellular, which also hooks you up ...

    Is the Huawei Watch the greatest Android Wear device ever made? Many seem to think so, but it’s likely about to get even better at IFA 2016. Then again, if you don’t relish the prospect of a presumably expensive sequel, and were still on the fence regarding the original models due precisely to their above-average prices, B&H Photo Video has a Black Friday-level sale in full swing on a wide array of first-gen Huawei Watch configurations. The “entry-level” variant, with a 42mm stainless steel frame and black leather band, sets you back an unprecedented $150 for the next 17 hours ...

    While a year arguably makes a world of difference when it comes to smartphone upgrades, and the OnePlus 3 revises its predecessor’s already impressive internals and attractive design, objectively improving them both and yet keeping the price bar relatively low, you can still appreciate the OnePlus 2 on its enduring strengths. Especially now that the 2015-released “flagship killer” finally runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, setting you back for a limited time an extremely palatable $239.99 on eBay. Top-rated seller cell-force promises to keep the unprecedented deal going for 30 more hours ...

    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 ...

    The date is August 19 and that means it's time for Samsung and its retail and carrier partners to move units and win hearts over the Galaxy Note 7. First shipments should be moving to mailboxes today, if not already and the chaebol is reminding us that you should probably buy some accessories for that new $800+ phablet you're getting. If you have not taken advantage of the company's offer of a free Gear Fit 2 wearable or a 256GB microSD, you still have up until August 28 to do so. Buy a Galaxy Note 7 from any participating carrier and then head on over to Samsung's promotions site for ...

    While perhaps not as compelling as the many Samsung Galaxy S7 deals offered by the Korean device manufacturer, plus US retail and carrier partners, the HTC 10 discounts and bundle promos have been starting to pile up of late, with the Taiwanese OEM looking to boost slumping sales volumes at the risk of losing profitability. No longer paired with free $200-worth JBL Reflect Aware C earbuds, the beveled edge-sporting 5.2-incher is again up for grabs by itself at $599, down from a $699 MSRP. 100 bucks hardly feels like a massive, life-altering price cut, but it’s something, and the sweetest ...

    Remember when the mid-range, jumbo-sized Sony Xperia C5 Ultra finally arrived stateside in GSM unlocked form, official warranty and 4G LTE speeds included, priced at $330, which almost felt like a reasonable ask? Time to ditch the “almost”, overlook the phablet’s now advanced age, as well as the fact it still hasn’t received a follow-up effort, and pull the trigger at a super-palatable $190 tag. You can choose between a silky white model on sale through B&H Photo Video, and a charcoal black flavor up for grabs at a massive 46 percent discount exclusively for Prime members on ...

    Although it’s almost two whole years old, which is an age that sees many mobile devices retire somewhere quiet and sunny, the iPhone 6 Plus still has everything it needs to remain in the spotlight (not to mention darn expensive), even after the 7-series launch next month. Its iconic design will go largely unchanged, the Full HD 5.5-inch LCD screen may need to wait another year for a significant upgrade, the battery life has no big enhancement in sight, and iOS 10 should arrive as soon as it does for the 6s Plus. Sure, the Apple A8 processor and 8/1.2MP cameras are a little outdated, with ...
