Moto 360 is going for just $165 at Google Play [DEAL] Tue, 14 Apr 2015 13:49:02 +0000 Moto 360 DSC06981

Just yesterday we told you of a decent deal to get $100 off the Moto 360 at Best Buy, but Google seems to be one-upping that one in a big way. The company has reduced the price of the Moto 360 to just $165 over at Google Play, which isn’t quite $100 off but also doesn’t require purchasing a smartphone to go along with it.

This comes shortly after Amazon lowered the smart watch’s price to just $179 on their online storefront. We’re not sure if these reductions are temporary sales or permanent price cuts, but the fact that we’re stumbling across so many of them at the same time suggests inventory is being moved to make way for a follow-up at some point very soon.

How soon? No one can say as of yet, though recent rumors have told of a possible follow-up in the works by the Lenovo-owned company based in Chicago. We’re almost 100% certain that they’re close to introducing a follow-up before the summer ends, so be sure to consider that when buying this first generation product. Either way, it’s a pretty steep discount that you should take advantage if you’ve been yearning for an Android Wear smart watch and can’t stand to wait any longer. Grab the deal right here.

If you were waiting to pull the trigger on the still very capable Motorola Moto X 2014, the phone is seeing a discount — yes, on April Fool’s Day — to $360 for a limited time.

At $360 for the base-model, that’s a $140 off which isn’t a bad deal by any stretch. When customized on Motorola’s site, the Moto X offers quite a few upgrades, things like 64GB internal storage boost, or leather and wood backed trims. These are all offered at a premium, so if nothing else, you can get use that discount to get a fully decked out Moto X (2nd Gen).

They’ve also got their accessories marked down by 30% when purchased at the same time as the phone, but only if you buy everything before April 2nd 10:59AM CT. Oh, and for everything you buy, shipping is free.

Something to consider before buying the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact for $400 on eBay [DEALS] Thu, 26 Mar 2015 19:31:11 +0000 Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

Without question the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is one of the best smartphones on the market. Fantastic battery life, great camera, all in a bite-sized package that’s perfect for 1-handed use. Today, the Z3c — in black, white, red, and green — was thrown up on eBay where it’s been marked down to a very reasonable $400. It’s a great deal to be sure, one that’s about $70 cheaper than you’ll find on Sony’s website. But before you grab your credit card, keep in mind this is not the US model (D5803) sold direct from Sony’s US store.

This particular model is the D5833. That means if you’re looking to buy for use here in the states, you should be okay if you’re on AT&T (it seems to supports all of AT&T’s frequency bands), but even then we’ve seen reports of weird IMEI editing tricks that needed to be done in order to fully unlock dormant LTE bands. So, proceed with caution.

If you’re looking to purchase for use on T-Mobile, you’ll want to stick with the D5803 model on Sony’s site. For everyone else in other parts of the world, you’ll want to make sure this specific model plays nice with your carrier’s frequency bands before picking it up. In either case, it is a great deal and probably the best small smartphone you an buy right now.
