DEAL: All Unlocked Galaxy S10 Phones are $400-$500 Off at Best Buy Today


It’s Black Friday in July over at Best Buy, so the deals are flowing. One of the best we’ve seen so far is a $400-$500 off offer on the entire US unlocked Galaxy S10 line, which includes the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e.

At $400 off, you can get into a Galaxy S10 (128GB) for $499, Galaxy S10+ (128GB) for $599, or Galaxy S10e (128GB) for $349. If you need more storage than 128GB, the $500 off savings comes when you aim for a higher tier model. So the Galaxy S10 (512GB) drops to $649.99 and the Galaxy S10+ (512GB) to $749.99.

No trade-ins are required for this offer, but you do need to activate through Best Buy with a carrier. That means to get the full $400 or $500 off deal, you need to activate with Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T. Best Buy doesn’t sell T-Mobile service.

I Took Two Busted Phones to uBreakiFix and This is How It Works

I Took Two Busted Phones to uBreakiFix and This is How It Works


I’ve accumulated a couple of cracked phones in recent months, thanks to my resistance to cases and having a 5-year old around. Because both phones happen to be phones (Galaxy S10e and Pixel 3a) I like a lot and do not want to pay to replace, I decided I’d go the uBreakiFix route to get them freshened up and back in working condition. And since some of you may be curious how this process works, I figured I’d at least document it for those who have questions.

Before we get into this, just know that this is in no way sponsored. I really do have a couple of broken phones that I want to get fixed, have used uBreakiFix before, and thought sharing the experience was worth it.

OK, this is how uBreakiFix works!


Step 1: Decide if your phone is worth replacing or fixing!

This seems like a common … Read the rest

DEAL: Unlocked Galaxy S10 Line is $200-$500 Off Right Now (Updated)


Prime Day deal on Samsung’s Galaxy S10 just got better.

Amazon Prime Day 2019 kicks of tomorrow morning, but if you have a few minutes to do some shopping today, the chances of you finding already-live or early deals are pretty good. For example, the entire Samsung Galaxy S10 family just went on sale at up to $500 off.

  • UPDATE: For Prime Day, the lower storage models of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ now start at $300 off.

The current deal is a straight $200 off Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, or Galaxy S10e base models, which are those with the lowest amounts of storage. If you decide you want more storage (and a bigger discount), that’s where the discount to $300 off happens.

An example, the Galaxy S10e 128GB now starts at $549.99 ($200 off), but the 256GB model is $300 off, bringing it’s price to $549.99 too. … Read the rest

Upcoming Phone Designs From OPPO, Samsung, and Huawei Might Get Weird

Verizon Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e Grab New Updates With Performance Improvements


It’s July, so Verizon and Samsung are pushing out June’s Android security patch to the Galaxy S10 family….wait. Umm. OK.

That’s not all they included, though. The Verizon Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10e all get new software today that should speed up performance (no specifics given) and also introduce One Talk support. One Talk, for those not familiar, is a Verizon service that lets you tie your office phone into your mobile phone to help you stay connected on the go.

The new software builds are G973USQU2ASF6 (Galaxy S10), G975USQU2ASF6 (Galaxy S10+), and G970USQU2ASF6 (Galaxy S10e).

To check for them, head into Settings>System updates.

DEAL: Samsung Goes Wild With Trades Toward Galaxy S10, $350-Off for a Galaxy S8

DEAL: Samsung Goes Wild With Trades Toward Galaxy S10, $350-Off for a Galaxy S8


Samsung really wants you to buy an unlocked Galaxy S10, S10+, or S10e right now. Their trade-in program just tweaked trade-in values for a number of phones and is offering ridiculous values for older devices you may have available to swap.

They just upped trade-in prices on the Galaxy S9 and S9+ to $400 for the first time in a while, but if you have a 2-year old Galaxy S8, S8+, or S8 Active lying around, you’ll get $350. From looking back at the original launch trade-in prices, these appear to be the highest yet for the S8 line. Samsung will also give Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge owners $300 off.

For other good trade prices, the iPhone XS Max is $500, iPhone XS is $450, and the iPhone X is $400.

There are a couple of things to note here. These higher trade-in values only appear … Read the rest

Friday Phone Deals: Pixel 2 XL for $10/mo, BOGO Galaxy S10


A Pixel 2 XL at $10/mo is this week’s best smartphone deal.

For this week’s round-up of the best smartphone deals, we’ve got a big price drop on the Pixel 2 XL from Verizon, a couple of solid BOGO deals on the Galaxy S10 family, and a sweetened Pixel 3a package from Best Buy.

Verizon Pixel 2 XL is $10/mo

The Pixel 2 XL might be over a year old at this point, but it’s still a solid phone with an incredible camera that will get a ton of software updates. It’s also the favorite Google phone of DL readers (our review).

At Verizon, you can buy one for just $10/mo, which is a discount of $609. The full price is $849.99, but Verizon will give you bill credits for 24 months to bring the payment down to $10/mo. No trade-ins are required.

If you have been eyeing any of the crazy ultra-thin cases on the market, we’ve got a MNML promo code for you that will drop the price down to just $14.99. That’s a $12.01 discount on cases for Google Pixel, Samsung, LG, and Apple phones.

Not familiar with MNML? MNML makes the most ridiculously thin cases that are perfect for those of us who aren’t actually fans of cases. They are paper thin pieces of precisely-shaped plastic that give phones protection from small drops and everyday wear and tear. They come in multiple colors and happen to feel pretty good when slapped onto a phone.

mophie’s $99 Juice Packs for Galaxy S10 Lineup Offer Up to 2,500mAh in Extra Battery Life


The Galaxy S10 lineup is already outfitted with solid battery capacity, but if you’re struggling to get through a full day due to your busy, busy lifestyle, mophie has a solution with its new Juice Pack battery cases.

Available for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+, the Juice Pack offers 2,000mAh of extra juice for the Galaxy S10e and S10, as well as 2,525mAh for the Galaxy S10+.

The battery case features Priority+ charging, allowing pass-through fast-charging speeds and sync capabilities when connected via USB-C, plus compatibility with Qi wireless charging pads. The only feature you’ll lose when using this case is Power Share, which I have to go out on a limb and assume hardly anyone uses anyway. I could be wrong, though.

Of course, these Juice Packs act as a case to protect your very expensive phone, too.

Regardless of the model you need, the Juice … Read the rest
