Thu, 30 Oct 2014 17:20:52 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0 Google offering six free months of Google Play Music when you purchase a Nexus 6 http://phandroid.com/2014/10/29/nexus-6-play-music-offer/ http://phandroid.com/2014/10/29/nexus-6-play-music-offer/#comments Wed, 29 Oct 2014 17:30:11 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=152019 google_play_music_all_access

Google’s giving folks quite the incentive to purchase a Nexus 6 for the holiday season. The company is set to offer 6 months of Google Play Music All Access for no charge if you order the phone (which should be up for pre-sale any moment now) by December 31st, 2014. The only other catch is that you must redeem your offer by the end of January 2015, though we have a feeling you won’t be dragging your feet on a $60 value.

Unfortunately this offer does not apply to you if you’ve used a Google Play Music trial or have been a paid subscriber within the past 12 months. Another catch is that you need to be a United States resident in order to be eligible.

Once you get a 6-month helping of Google Play Music you probably won’t want to look back. Google has built up a massive collection of on-demand music that you can listen to without issue. The added bonus of being able to store 20,000 of your own tracks in the cloud is just more icing on a very sweet cake. Let us know if you’ll be taking advantage once you get your Nexus 6 starting next month.

Android Deals: Samsung tablets, hoverboards, and Halloween movies http://phandroid.com/2014/10/28/android-deals-samsung-tablets-hoverboards-and-halloween-movies/ http://phandroid.com/2014/10/28/android-deals-samsung-tablets-hoverboards-and-halloween-movies/#comments Tue, 28 Oct 2014 20:47:59 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=151942 hallodeals

This week we’ve got more great deals on Android devices, accessories, and Halloween favorites. You can get your start with 3D printing, travel back to the future with a hoverboard, play baseball on your phone, listen to some great classic tunes, and watch a scary movie. It’s all right here in our list of great deals, but act fast before they disappear! Happy Halloween!

Hardware & Accessories

back-to-future-hoverboard-3

Save $30 on the Samsung Galaxy S 8.4. Arguably the best Android tablet (before the Nexus 9 came around) can be yours for just $370 from Newegg. This is the white WiFi model with 16GB of storage and 3GB of RAM. [Newegg.com]

28 USB Ports & One Hub To Rule Them All. You probably have a ton of devices that can be charged with USB cables. This also means that you probably don’t have nearly enough USB ports to charge them all. Enter the MondoHub: 28 ports for all your charging needs, and it’s currently $40 off. [AndroidArea]

Get 30% off a floating waterproof speaker. Bluetooth speakers are extremely handy if you don’t want to put your phone in harm’s way. A waterproof speaker is the perfect example of this. Why risk putting your smartphone near water when you can toss the Miccus Waterproof speaker right in? [Woot]

Take 25% off your start to 3D printing. Everyone wants a 3D printer right now, but the prices are still pretty high. There are a few entry-level devices that can get your foot in the door for a relatively low price. The Portabee GO is one of those products. Right now you can get one for less than $1,000. Not a bad start. [AndroidArea]

Go back to the future with hoverboard and Nike Air Mag. One of the coolest things to come from the Back to the Future trilogy is the iconic hoverboard. Several generations of kids have wished for this mythical toy. You can’t have the real thing yet, but this electric skateboard is pretty close. For good measure you’ll get a pair of 2015 Nike Air Mags. [AndroidArea]

How much would you pay for a pair of wireless headphones boasting a lightweight design and the ability to drop some heavy bass? What if we throw in a noise-canceling outer shell and built-in microphone for hands-free voice calls? We’d say thats worth at least $60, but you won’t have to pay that much to get your own pair of TOCCs Feather Buds. Thanks to AndroidArea.com you can snag a set for only $24.99.

Buy TOCCs Feather Buds for $24.99 at AndroidArea.com

That equates to savings of over 50% off retail value for these in-ear headphones featuring great audio quality at ranges of up 30ft. Pair the with your Android smartphone, a computer, or any other compatible Bluetooth device and free yourself of the hassles and tangles associated with wired headphones. This is 2014, people. Cord cutting is a thing.

Three sizes of comfort gel buds are included to insure a perfect, sound-tight fit for listeners of all shapes and sizes. A rechargeable battery nets you up to 6 hours of audio playback or voice calls and can be quickly juiced up via the included charging cable.

As with all AndroidArea deals, this one won’t last forever. Grab your pair today and take advantage of free shipping.

Deal: Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 for $360 on eBay http://phandroid.com/2014/10/24/galaxy-tab-s-10-5-deal/ http://phandroid.com/2014/10/24/galaxy-tab-s-10-5-deal/#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 15:28:59 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=151763 galaxy-tab-s-10.5-quick-briefing

One reseller on eBay is holding a nice sale on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 if you’re in the market for one. The tablet, which is the 16GB version, usually goes for $550, but you can get it for $360 through a buy it now offer. It includes free shipping and the peace of mind that out of 214,000+ reviews only less than 1% of people had issues.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S line is one of Samsung’s best yet. The 10.5 inch display is loaded with 2560 x 1600 resolution, and it’s all powered by Samsung’s 1.9GHz Exynos 5 Octa and 3GB of RAM. Other bells and whistles include WiFi ac MIMO at 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz, Bluetooth 4.0, MHL 2.1 for video out, an 8 megapixel rear camera with flash, a 2.1 megapixel front camera, a microSD card slot for up to 128GB of expandable storage and Android 4.4 KitKat.

For all that, $360 isn’t a bad price to pay at all. You’ll want to jump in on this soon as the listing states limited quantities are available, and we’re sure they won’t last long at such a good deal. Head to eBay and order one right now if you’re interested.

All Grand Theft Auto games on sale right now in the Google Play Store http://phandroid.com/2014/10/24/gta-sale/ http://phandroid.com/2014/10/24/gta-sale/#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 14:54:29 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=151760 gta trilogy header

Rockstar games is giving everyone a little treat ahead of Halloween next week. The company has placed all three of their Grand Theft Auto games on sale, including Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto Vice City and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. They’re coming in at price points of $2.99, $2.99, and $3.99, respectively.

Those are some good prices for mobile versions of a series of games that defined their generation. The Grand Theft Auto series was by far one of the most successful back when it enjoyed mid-2000s prominence, and it was as much fun as advertised.

The graphics may not have aged too well up against contemporary counterparts, but Rockstar did a well enough job remastering the graphics for high resolution displays that you should still find it an enjoyable experience. Use the Google Play links above to get going if you’re interested.

Nexus Player sold out… but not on eBay (update: it hasn’t cleared FCC) http://phandroid.com/2014/10/18/nexus-player-sold-out/ http://phandroid.com/2014/10/18/nexus-player-sold-out/#comments Sat, 18 Oct 2014 13:09:19 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=151384 It’s not surprising that the $99 Nexus Player – the first official Android TV device – sold out in its first day. The price point makes it affordable for a wide audience, it has the “Nexus” allure, and it’s the type of thing early adopters dream about. Even limiting the Nexus Player to 2 per customer, they sold out well before 24 hours.

So, as is typical with such cases, we’re now seeing the Nexus Player on eBay for $150:

Screen Shot 2014-10-18 at 8.49.04 AM

The seller of the listing above actually seems quite reputable, with a 99.8% feedback score and 168 positive reviews in the past month (2 neutral, 0 negative). Then again, he’s not the only one selling it.

My first question: who is buying it? The Nexus Player doesn’t even ship until mid November and the likelihood that Google puts it back up for sale again is very good. Why jump the gun when you’ll likely save $50 and get it sooner directly from the source? And since there is a 2 unit limit, how do these sellers have unlimited devices to sell? That seems a bit fishy.

Nevertheless, if you’re looking to buy the Nexus Player right now, you’re met with the below dreaded message. Were you able to buy the Nexus Player before it sold out? Hit up the Nexus Player Forum on AndroidForums.com!

Screen Shot 2014-10-18 at 8.47.24 AM

UPDATE: We’re now being pointed to the bottom of the Nexus Player page to a quote that says the following:

This device has not been approved by the Federal Communications Commission.
It is not for sale until approval of the FCC has been obtained.

That seems like a rather large detail to overlook before initially putting it on sale for the first time… don’t ya think? Could that mid November shipment date be in jeopardy? Or is the NexP just about to make good with FCC folk and this is a mere technicality?

Verizon Moto X (2014) on sale for $50 through Moto Maker through October 20th [DEAL] http://phandroid.com/2014/10/17/moto-x-verizon-sale/ http://phandroid.com/2014/10/17/moto-x-verizon-sale/#comments Fri, 17 Oct 2014 15:44:07 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=151298 Verizon Moto X 2014 DSC06999

Verizon and Motorola are offering up some mid-month savings on the all new Moto X if you’re in the market for one. You can buy it for $50 on a new two-year contract through Moto Maker. The Moto X is already pretty affordable at a cool $100 so if you were on the fence before then this should certainly push you over.

The deal lasts just 3 days, with the final day to take advantage being Monday, October 20th. Not a bad way to spend $50 if you’re in the market for a new phone and don’t mind being tethered to a two-year commitment. Our review has everything you need to decide if it’s the phone for you, so be sure to check that out and head to Motorola’s site here if you decide you want one.

Hardware & Accessories

LG G Watch Android Wear DSC06105

Join the smartwatch revolution with an LG G Watch for only $160, a savings of $70 off the retail price. The LG G Watch launched as part of the first generation of Android Wear devices, and it remains one of the best options on the market for those looking for more out of their wrist-worn timepiece. [Best Buy]

Get half off the Sony SmartWatch 2 for a different take on an Android-infused wearable. Not an Android Wear device, the Sony Smartwatch 2 is the evolution of Sony’s smartwatch concept, bringing many of the same great features as competing devices with style only offered by the Japanese tech conglomerate. [CowBoom]

Go wireless with the Photive BTH3 Bluetooth headphones for $49.99. A savings of $70, these headphones boast 12 hours of battery life and include a hard travel case. Never deal with the hassle of a tangled cord again. [Amazon]

Snag the portable ASUS MeMo Pad HD for $80. This tablet has the DNA of the Nexus 7 and can be yours for a fraction of the price. Specs include an HD 7-inch display, 16GB of internal storage, and full WiFi connectivity. [eBay]

LG G Watch on sale for $160 new, or $70 used through Best Buy [DEAL] http://phandroid.com/2014/10/13/lg-g-watch-sale-best-buy/ http://phandroid.com/2014/10/13/lg-g-watch-sale-best-buy/#comments Mon, 13 Oct 2014 12:30:07 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=150790 LG G Watch Android Wear DSC06104

This is a pretty good deal for those who’ve been wanting to try out Android Wear but didn’t fancy dropping a minimum of $200 on a first generation smart watch. Best Buy has the LG G Watch on sale for a cool $160. That’ll get you a brand new watch that’s never been touched before so you don’t have to worry about quality issues.

Want one for $70? That sounds even better, though you’ll have to put up with the fact that someone has owned it before. That particular deal is going on through Best Buy’s Cowboom, a daily deals site that’s delivered some pretty decent deals over its short life thus far. Unfortunately this isn’t a factory refurbished item, so Best Buy can only guarantee that the condition of the item is “satisfactory.” We imagine they wouldn’t ship something out that didn’t work or had a broken display, but don’t be surprised if you see some wear and tear on the thing once it arrives.

The timing of the sales are quite interesting as we know LG is planning to launch their round G Watch R as early as today in South Korea. Could be that Best Buy is preparing to make some room on store shelves by offloading inventory of the original LG G Watch, though LG has yet to announce any specific launch plans for the new smart watch outside of their home territory. Let us know if you’ll be taking advantage of the deals in the comments below.

Verizon’s Motorola DROID MAXX now free with two-year contract http://phandroid.com/2014/10/02/motorola-droid-maxx-free/ http://phandroid.com/2014/10/02/motorola-droid-maxx-free/#comments Thu, 02 Oct 2014 15:49:50 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=150107 DROID MAXX-4

With the latest Moto X now available (check out our Moto X 2014 review) and the next entry in Verizon’s long-standing DROID line ready to make its debut, the company thought it wise to start discounting some older phones. The Motorola DROID Maxx has seen a very nice price drop to the low, low price of zero dollars and zero cents.

Of course, that “free” price tag does come with the need to sign a two-year commitment to Verizon service. You avoid that particular situation by buying the smartphone outright for $500 or $24.99 per month through 24 months with Verizon Edge. Folks should note that the Motorola DROID MAXX no longer comes in a standard 32GB — Verizon halved that internal storage right around the device’s first major price cut.

The Motorola DROID MAXX was a pretty good phone for its time. It housed all of the same innards and had a lot of the same specs and features as the Moto X of yesteryear, but added some nice touches like a massive battery, Kevlar-coated backing, wireless charging and more.

It’s still quite the serviceable device for anyone looking for a smartphone that doesn’t have a hefty price tag, though we’d understand if you’re feeling a bit hesitant now that it’s being outclassed by newer offerings. Be sure to head to Verizon and take a look if you’re interested.

Verizon holds par with AT&T, doubles down on data with new promotion http://phandroid.com/2014/10/01/verizon-double-data-promotion/ http://phandroid.com/2014/10/01/verizon-double-data-promotion/#comments Wed, 01 Oct 2014 19:53:04 +0000 http://phandroid.com/?p=150052 Verizon Moto X 2014 DSC07000

Starting tomorrow Verizon customers will be able to take advantage of new deals on data to trick out their wireless accounts. 4G LTE allowances are being increased across the board for More Everything subscribers, including double the data starting at the $150 pricing tier. The promotion comes hot on the heels of a similar offer from AT&T.

More Everything plans include shareable data for families with multiple LTE devices. At the $110 price level, what was once 12GB of data becomes 15GB. At the next tier, 16GB becomes 30GB. The deal really starts getting good at $150 and above, where data doubles to 40GB (up to 100GB for those shelling out $375/month).

What isn’t clear from Verizon’s initial release is the duration of the promotional data amounts. AT&T’s similar double data deal is good for the length of a subscriber’s contract. We’ll see if similar terms apply to Verizon’s offering.

What is clear is that those hoping to score the increased data allotments have until October 31st to act. After that, data caps reset to their halved amounts.
