Amazon drops the Fire Phone pricing to $130, but you likely still aren't interested

52

Considering the Fire Phone comes with a free year of Amazon Prime, a $99 value, the company is basically selling the phone for just $30.

Starting the USB-C transition.

MicroUSB has been the golden standard with Android phones and tablets for several years now, but over the next year there's heavy expectation that we'll see the new USB-C connector take its place.

122
Moto X Play

At a series of events around the world in late July, Motorola dropped not one, but two versions of its top-end phone, the Moto X.

While the Moto X Style is still a little ways off, the Moto X Play is now on sale in places like the UK and Canada. It's not the highest of the high-end like the Style (or Pure Edition, depending where you are), but instead sits in the middle of Moto's newest range of devices between its bigger brother and the best-selling Moto G.

So, what's it like? Here are our first impressions.

In Pictures: The HTC Desire 626

20

Smartphones don't have to be expensive anymore, at least not if you decide to take a look at HTC's Desire 626. Previously the Desire line is better known over in Europe and Asia, but now it's here in the states as well in all of it's affordable glory. It's got a comfortable fit in your hand, and despite the plastic casing it doesn't feel particularly cheap. This phone retails for around $200, which makes it worth checking out for the price point alone.

It's a change of pace from the "flagship" HTC phones we've gotten used to, and that isn't a bad thing at all.

Galaxy Note 5 S Pen

Apparently this is a thing with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 that needs to be said out loud: Do not insert the S Pen back into the body of the phone backward. Or upside down. Or whatever.

Pointy side first, folks.
