[Deal] 64GB T-Mobile Galaxy S6 for $279.99

Galaxy S6

The T-Mobile branded #Samsung #GalaxyS6 can now be yours for just $279.99 courtesy of a deal running via eBay. The smartphone comes with 64GB of internal storage, so it’s not the base model that we usually see around. The Galaxy S6 has been visiting the deals pages quite frequently, so it’s not really a surprise to see it here again.

The phone comes with a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, the octa-core Exynos 7420 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of non-expandable storage, Android 5.0 Lollipop, and a 2,550 mAh battery. As you can see, the device is quite a monster even for a late 2016 purchase.

If these factors interest you (in addition to the pricing), we cannot suggest a better handset than this right now. However, you might have to proceed with haste as stocks might be fairly limited.

[Deal] Unlocked Sony Xperia Z5 Premium DUAL for $448.99

Xperia Z5 Premium

The world’s first 4K display smartphone, the #Sony #XperiaZ5Premium is now available through eBay for just $448.99. Although the display quality is not 4K by default, the software enables it automatically when you’re watching media content or browsing through images. This feature has been put in place to save battery life as 4K screens tend to eat up a lot of battery.

The handset comes with a 5.5-inch 3840 x 2160 resolution 4K UHD display, a 23-megapixel rear camera, a 5.1-megapixel front camera, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, the octa-core Snapdragon 810 SoC, Android 5.1 Lollipop (upgradable to Marshmallow), and a 3,430 mAh battery.

20,000 mAh power bank

The Ultrathin 20,000 mAh external power bank is selling on eBay for a miserly $12.99. Given the kind of battery capacity it has, users don’t have to worry about carrying a charging adapter for at least three days, assuming you’re going to use your devices to the max.

The seller is offering this particular power bank in Black, Blue, Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, Hot Pink, which means there’s no dearth of available colors.

[Deal] 16GB Samsung Nexus 10 for $199.99

Nexus 10

Nexus 10

The #Samsung #Google #Nexus10 is now available on eBay for just $199.99. The seller is offering the 16GB version of the tablet here, which isn’t much, especially since there’s no microSD card slot on board. But if you’re looking to keep this as a secondary tablet, or gift it to someone who isn’t that tech savvy, these things shouldn’t come in the way.

The Nexus 10 comes with a 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 display, dual-core Exynos 5250 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of non-expandable storage, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 1.9-megapixel front camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (upgradable to Android 5.1), and a 9,000 mAh battery. While the Nexus 10 is no longer supported by Google in terms of software updates, it’s still running Android 5.1 on board, which was released early last year.

If this is not much of a compromise for you, be sure to check out the deal from the eBay page below.

LG X Power

LG X Power

The #BoostMobile #LG #XPower is now selling via eBay for a miserly $59.99. This isn’t a low-end device by any means, which makes this deal quite interesting. One of the key highlights of this smartphone is the presence of a massive 4,100 mAh battery. Having a smartphone of this battery capacity at this price point is quite rare.

Barring the battery, the X Power comes with a 5.3-inch 720p display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, the octa-core MediaTek MT6755M chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

[Deal] Verizon + unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5 for $122.99

The unlocked version of the #Samsung #GalaxyS5 is available for only $122.99 on eBay. The smartphone is also compatible with Verizon’s network, which makes this a very versatile deal. The handset might be two years old in the industry, but is still a very interesting device to own, especially for the kind of hardware it’s packing.

The Galaxy S5 comes with a 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.4 KitKat (upgradable to Android 6.0), and a 2,800 mAh battery.

[Deal] 1st gen ASUS ZenWatch for $59.95

The #ASUS #ZenWatch is now selling via eBay for just $59.95. The smartwatch was launched a couple of years ago, so it’s not exactly the newest kid on the block. But if that’s not much of a caveat for you, this can be an excellent smartwatch to get you started with the concepts of Android Wear. Naturally, the wearable is refurbished.

The ZenWatch comes with the same set of hardware that we see on other Android Wear offerings. This includes a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED display, the quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, Android Wear OS, and a 369 mAh battery. Given that it’s the holiday season, we’re guessing the pricing has been slashed somewhat by the manufacturer. If these factors interest you, we suggest you have a closer look at the deal.

Stocks might be limited, so make sure you hurry.

[Deal] Verizon Samsung Gear S2 for $139.95

Samsung Gear S2

Samsung Gear S2

The standard version of the #Samsung #GearS2 is now available through eBay for a miserly $139.95. The unit is refurbished. We have seen multiple deals on the Gear S2 Classic before, so it’s good to have a discount on the entry-level model as well.

The Gear S2 offered here comes locked to Verizon’s network in the U.S., so you won’t be able to use it with any other network in the region. This is a bit of a letdown, but given the amount of Verizon subscribers that are available out there, it shouldn’t be a big worry.

The smartwatch is capable of functioning on its own using Verizon’s networks, which is a big plus if you prefer a device that functions independently and not when paired with a smartphone. We suggest you have a closer look at this deal before stocks run out.

[Deal] Unlocked LG G Flex 2 for $199.99

G Flex 2

The #GFlex2 can now be yours courtesy of a deal on eBay for just $199.99. The handset is offered unlocked and without a contract, so you can pair this with any GSM carrier of your choice. The G Flex 2, as most of you will be aware, comes with a curved OLED panel on board, which gives it that unique and distinctive look. The rest of the hardware underneath is no slouch either.

In addition to the 5.5-inch 1080p Curved OLED display, the G Flex 2 comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front camera, 32GB of expandable storage, 3GB of RAM, the octa-core Snapdragon 810 SoC, Android 5.0 Lollipop (upgradable to Android 5.1), and a 3,000 mAh battery. Yet another key feature of the G Flex 2 is the addition of a self-healing back cover, which can get rid of minor scratches and scuffs on its own.

Taking these factors into account, the G Flex 2 is certainly a very good choice for this holiday season.

[Deal] 64GB unlocked Galaxy S6 edge for $399.99

The 64GB version of the #Samsung #GalaxyS6edge is now available via eBay for $399.99. The smartphone comes with an exciting hardware specs sheet underneath, which doesn’t get us too concerned about the price tag quoted by the seller. The Galaxy S6 edge was one of the first Samsung phones to sport a dual-edge display, so it holds some significance in the industry even today.

The smartphone comes with a 5.1-inch Quad HD dual-edge Super AMOLED display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, the octa-core Exynos 7420 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of non-expandable storage, Android 5.0 Lollipop (upgradable to Marshmallow), and a 2,600 mAh battery.

Two new Android Wear smartwatches to launch by Q1 2017: Google

Android Wear

#Google has announced that there will be two new #AndroidWear 2.0 smartwatches launching within the first three months of 2017. The information was provided by Jeff Chang, who is the product manager of Android Wear at Google.

The company clarified that these wearables won’t carry Pixel branding on board as it will be produced by third-party manufacturers who have already been involved with Android Wear in the past. Google refused to divulge details on the manufacturers, though, but it’s safe to assume that LG will be one of them.

Manufacturers were revealed to be a bit hesitant a couple of months ago with regards to the prospects of Android Wear, but things seem to have changed since then. It is said that other manufacturers will reveal Android Wear 2.0 based smartwatches over the course of 2017, so we have that to look forward to as well. Android Wear 2.0 will bring support for Android Pay, which could be a game changer.

After the new hardware is unveiled, Google will start sending out the update to existing smartwatches. While the list hasn’t been confirmed yet, it seems like only the recent crop of wearables will be included.

Google says that its goal is to convince the market and customers that Android Wear or smartwatches are still in demand, which could be a driving force to take the sales forward.

You’ll have to wait until January 21 to get an Amazon Echo

Amazon Echo

Amazon Echo

The #AmazonEcho is a popular device for the Holidays. Thanks to the Alexa voice assistant, users can get a lot more done with just their voice. However, you will have to wait for at least a month if you want to get the Echo for yourself or your loved ones. This is according to the official Echo page on Amazon, which says the product will only be in stock by the 21st of January.

Luckily, customers will be able to avail the holiday season discount for pre-orders as well, which means you can get the Echo for just $139.99, though the delivery will be by late January 2017. The Amazon Echo Dot will be in stock by the 27th of December, while the Amazon Tap is still up for grabs, so you’re not too late if you want to buy either of these two devices.

Analysts and experts have predicted that Google Home could benefit by the absence of Amazon Echo. The product is still very much in stock, so for the people who can’t get the Echo, Home will naturally be an alternative. Have you purchased or pre-ordered any of these products yet?

HTC X10 leaks out in images, one step closer to an official release

HTC X10

HTC X10

The #HTC #X10 has leaked out in a series of images today, suggesting that the device isn’t far away from a release. It appears to be a mid-ranger, which is further confirmed by the preliminary specs sheet that has leaked out already.

The X10 apparently has a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear camera on board. MediaTek’s Helio P10 SoC will handle the processing duties, apparently. What’s interesting about the device is that it doesn’t appear to have a fingerprint scanner. Perhaps HTC wants to cut down costs of this handset to earn more profits per device.

But considering how fingerprint scanners have become a norm in the industry today, this comes across as a bit surprising. However, we’re sure that the device can do fairly well in the market if priced appropriately. It is said that the handset will be priced at 200 CNY or $290 when it is launched.

The HTC X10 was revealed by a filing with the Eurasian Economic Commission, so it should only be a matter of time before more information is revealed by the company.

Samsung initially considered a ‘Galaxy S8 Plus’ model with a 6-inch display and stylus on board

As per a fresh report out of news outlets, #Samsung was torn between several different display sizes for the #GalaxyS8. A new report is mentioning that the Korean manufacturer even considered the possibility of using a stylus on board the new flagship, and calling it the “Galaxy S8 Plus”. While this plan apparently hasn’t gone through, there’s still some doubt on the kind of display that Samsung intends to use with its new flagship.

Many are suggesting that the Galaxy S8 or the S8 Plus will have a 6-inch display on board. If rumors about the company trimming down the bezel space around the device is true, then a 6-inch display could well feature on the next Samsung flagship.

For now, though, it seems like the jury is still out on what display size the company will end up with. It won’t be a surprise if the base model will have a 5.5-inch display and the high-end or the “Plus” model will end up sporting a 6-inch panel. What do you think about these choices?
