Kick off your Philips Hue obsession with this 4-bulb Starter Kit for $60

6

It's time to make your lights smarter without going broke!

Is this deal for me?

If you've been looking to get into the whole smart home lighting game, and have yet to make the move because of price, this offer may be the best one out there. This Starter Kit comes with four white bulbs and the hub that's required for them to work all for just $59.98. This price is available at both Amazon and Best Buy right now. Normally, this kit runs $99.99, and at this price it's only $1 more than the 2-bulb Starter Kit is right now.

Amazon has also dropped the price of the Philips Hue LightStrip Plus down to $49.98, which is a match of Best Buy's price drop for its Early Black Friday deals. This is a savings of $40 from the normal selling price of the LightStrip Plus, so you won't want to pass it up.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - Smart lights are incredibly awesome, but also a pretty expensive thing to get into. With Philips Hue bulbs, you need a Hub to be able to use them, and this discounted kit includes all of that. Normally, a 4-pack of bulbs runs $49.99, and the Hub is $59.99 on its own.
  • Things to know before you buy! - This deal is part of Best Buy's Early Black Friday discounts, and the prices are set to last through Saturday, or until they sell out. These are going in and out of stock at Amazon.

How are you liking the Pixel 2 XL's display after the November update?

78

Here's what you had to say about the Pixel 2 XL's new display modes.

With the recent November security patch update that Google just started to push out, the Pixel 2 XL is gaining new display profiles to silence the complaints that many users have voiced regarding the dull and washed-out nature of the phone's screen.

The Pixel 2 XL previously featured a Vivid toggle that increased saturation by around 10-percent, but this has now been replaced with Normal, Boosted, and Saturated.

Some users are still waiting to get their hands on the November update, but for those that have already downloaded it, here's what they've had to say for their initial impressions.

After the Nov update on Pixel 2 XL what are your thoughts on the Saturation Settings. I have found that the Boosted works best for me. I like the Saturated setting except I think it makes white backgrounds look to red.

I settled on Boosted also. It may be my imagination, but it appears to me to be a little more saturated than the previous "Vivid" setting. Has anyone seen figures from Google on the levels of saturation for the 3 new levels? I tried Saturated for a while, and it some situations it was more fun. But in the end most things just seemed too cartoonish. The thing that made me switch back to...

How has your Google Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL battery life been?

Google Pixel 2 battery life

It's the most important spec for many people.

Battery life makes or breaks the smartphone experience. No, not just battery size but the combination of factors that lead to how long a phone will last on an average day before you start looking for a battery or a wall outlet. Battery life differs pretty widely among phones, but the biggest differences you see in reported battery life come down to the vast differences in how we use our phones. Ask two people with the same exact phone how their battery life is on a normal day, and you can get two very different numbers — one reassuring, and another unsettling.

Whether you have the Pixel 2, with its relatively small 2700mAh battery, or the bigger Pixel 2 XL with far better longevity prospects, we want to know how your battery life has been.

Despite its small battery capacity, some people are seeing great battery life on the Pixel 2.

Yep, 3 straight days with 6+ hours of SOT with Pixel 2. This includes GPS, YouTube and camera. Not babying the battery at all. Going out of my way to use the phone. Im amazed how efficient this phone is. If I go easy, I can probably get 8+ hours SOT.

Seeing a whole bunch of reports like this. Impressive.

Cakefish 10-23-2017 05:35 PM “

Over 4 hours of SOT with 50% still to go. Regular Pixel 2. Mixed 4G and WiFi usage. Adaptive brightness on. GPS on. Bluetooth off. AOD off.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171023/92dbbb4e26bf2c49ce3e0bd1c5d59108.jpg

It's tough to find someone with a Pixel 2 XL who isn't very happy with their battery life.

JHBThree 10-22-2017 05:37 PM “

Yesterday I had over 5 hours SOT and still had 40% in the tank when I went to bed. So far the battery life on the 2XL has been fantastic.

And the 2 XL is outperforming its predecessor as well, which is always a good sign.

2 XL here... The battery life is incredible. I pulled it off the charger 6 hours ago. Since then I used my phone to navigate to work (25 minute commute), streamed music the whole way here, I've watched YouTube, used Instagram, I screenshared with support while I was troubleshooting an issue, plus other random stuff. I've currently had the screen on for 2 hrs and 20min and have my brightness maxed...

Huawei is getting serious about the U.S. market.

Huawei relies on Amazon to sell devices in the U.S., but it looks like the company is tying up with at least one carrier to push sales of its latest flagship, the Mate 10 Pro. The folks at XDA Developers found a firmware file that suggests the phone will be sold and marketed by AT&T in the U.S.

No, Xiaomi isn't working on a Mi Mix 2 variant with an iPhone X-style notch

11

This is not the Mi Mix 2s.

Xiaomi said during the launch of the Mi Mix 2 that it explored various implementations for the positioning of the front camera, including a design that featured a cutout at the top, much like the "notch" on the iPhone X. The company ultimately decided to place the camera module on the bottom bezel for the Mix 2, and while alleged photos of a "Mi Mix 2s" with a cutout at the top are making the rounds, the phone in question is a standard Mi Mix 2 running an app that mimics the notch.

Mophie announces new battery cases for the Galaxy Note 8

8

Mophie's new juice pack and charge force case for the Note 8 cost $99.95 and $49.95, respectively.

Samsung knocked most things out of the park with this year's Note 8, but one aspect of the phone that left some users feeling a bit cheated out is with its battery. The 3,300 mAh unit isn't technically small and offers enough juice for most folks, but compared to the Galaxy S8+ and last year's Note 7, it does leave a bit to be desired.

Thankfully, mophie is coming to the rescue as it just announced its juice pack and charge force case for the Galaxy Note 8.

Starting first with the juice pack, this is the more expensive of the two cases with a price tag of $99.95. The juice pack comes equipped with a built-in 2,950 mAh battery, and mophie says that this should provide over 36 hours of additional talk time. Mophie added wireless charging to the case so you can continue to wirelessly charge your Note 8 just like you would if it didn't have a case on, and it features secure magnetic positioning for use with mophie's charge force stations.

Mophie juice pack (left), charge force case (right)

As for the charge force case, this features a much more affordable price of $49.95 with the exception of not having a built-in battery. This makes the case much slimmer than the juice pack, and it still offers passthrough wireless charging and compatibility with all of mophie's charge force accessories – including the powerstation mini, desk mount, and others.

Both cases are available to order from mophie's website starting today, but at the time of publishing the article, the juice pack is already out of stock.

Samsung's launching a Galaxy S8 in Burgundy Red, and it looks amazing

41

Sadly, it's currently only available in South Korea 😞

In recent years, we've seen manufacturers get more and more adventurous when it comes to colors that phones are sold in. The Nextbit Robin debuted in a stunning white and mint combo, Google's Really Blue Pixel last year was a joy to look at, and HTC's still impressive Solar Red U11 just might be one of the most eye-catching handsets ever made.

We've seen Samsung adventure with new colors, with some of the most notable being Coral and Deep Sea Blue on the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, respectively.

Just in time for the fall season, Samsung has announced a new color for the former of those two devices. It's called Burgundy Red, and it's easily one of Samsung's best color options yet.

The back, frame, and buttons of the Burgundy Red Galaxy S8 feature a very bright and powerful red hue, and the overall aesthetic really is something special. "It's no Solar Red U11" as our own Hayato Huseman points out, but I don't care. I still think it looks great and I'd like to buy five of them right now.

Unfortunately, for the time being, you'll only be able to buy the Galaxy S8 in Burgundy Red if you're in South Korea. Samsung hasn't indicated if the new color will be making its way to other markets, but with the Deep Sea Blue Note 8 recently launching in the U.S., we wouldn't totally count against that happening just yet.

Deal: Samsung Gear Sport and Fit2 Pro both already $30 off

0

Now just $269 and $169!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner for our readers in the United States, we'll have to workout extra hard to burn off turkey and pumpkin pie before we know it. Thankfully, Samsung is thinking one step ahead and discounting its two latest wearables in preparation for our oversized feast.

Gear Sport (left), Gear Fit2 Pro (right)

Currently, both Amazon and Best Buy have the Gear Sport and Gear Fit2 Pro listed for $30 lower than their regular asking price. This puts the Gear Sport at just $269 and the Fit2 Pro at $169, making them two of the best deals available if you're in the market for a new smartwatch or fitness tracker.

Andrew praised the Gear Sport as being Samsung's best smartwatch to-date in his full review, and after spending some time with the gadget myself, I determined that it was the best alternative for those that haven't been impressed with recent Android Wear offerings. Daniel also just published his review for the Fit2 Pro, saying that "the screen is out-of-this-world good, and the tracking is fantastic for those who'd rather be reinforced with kind messages and automatic number crunching than to-the-millimeter perfection."

Best Buy's pricing should remain through this coming Saturday, November 11, as part of its early Black Friday sale, but there's no word as to how long you'll be able to pick the wearables up at this lower price from Amazon. As such, we recommend acting on this deal sooner rather than later to ensure you don't miss out!

Pokémon Go developer announces Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

6

Time to dust off your wands.

If you owned a smartphone in the summer of 2016, chances are you were sucked into Pokémon Go for some amount of time. Developer Niantic captured the attention and hearts of players all around the world with last year's smash hit, and today, the company has announced its follow-up project – Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

Niantic is partnering with Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and the development team at WB Games San Francisco to make the game possible, and while specifics on it are still scarce, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will let players turn their regular world into J.K. Rolling's Wizarding World through the AR tech that Niantic used to power Pokémon Go and Ingress before it.

In its announcement post for the game on its blog, Niantic says that players will be able to "learn spells, explore their real world neighborhoods and cities to discover & fight legendary beasts and team up with others to take down powerful enemies." A lot of the elements found within Pokémon Go will be present in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, but Niantic assures that new tech and gameplay mechanics will be here it as well.

There's no estimated release for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite for the time being, but Niantic says to keep an eye on its social channels for future updates as we inch closer and closer to the day when you can team up with your buddies to bring down a giant, blue troll.

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds — Should you buy it?

5

Dive once more into the chilly breach!

Way back in February, Guerrilla Games and Sony released what will most certainly end up being in my top 5 games of the year. Horizon Zero Dawn is a gorgeous and engaging game with great characters and an interesting story. When I heard that there was an expansion forthcoming, my digital salivary glands went into overdrive.

Now that I have spent the last 10 hours with that expansion, The Frozen Wilds, let's take a brief look at all the new things this expansion has to offer and what exactly you're going to get for your $19.99

See at PlayStation Store

Let's get it started!

The Frozen Wilds patches into the core game of Zero Dawn relatively seamlessly and you can engage with the content whether you have completed the main storyline or not. That being said, it has been recommended that you don't take off into the great white north until you are at least level 30.

I started at level 35 and I can confirm that that is some sound advice. Things are a bit tougher this go-around. As far as traveling to the new world goes, you don't have to take a boat and a load-screen to an island where the expansion lives. All you have to do is navigate your way to the new chunk of the map.

The where of 'The Frozen Wilds'

Apparently, there is a sanctioned quest to get you started with Frozen Wilds that can be picked up at the Daytower Fort but it is ostensibly just a method of dropping a waypoint for you. If you want to go that route just hit the Daytower and look for a gentleman named Ohtur.

If you prefer to go your own way, just head to the northeast corner of the map where the Grave Hoard quest took place. Once there, you simply scale the wall and you are in The Frozen Wilds. Just as the name might suggest, boy, are these wilds frozen. It's a beautiful break from the largely arid visuals of the core game and I would guess that it adds an additional 15% of territory to explore.

If you can't seem to find Ohtur, and don't see the yellow climbing wall, then you may need to restart your console in order for the expansion to become fully available. If you open your map you ought to see an entirely new area at the far NorthEast of the map, fully fogged over. You'll also see a new campfire directly north of the Gravehoard.

The who of what's new

Any good map expansion should have a population and The Frozen Wilds sees its new area peopled by the Banuk. As one might expect from a tribe living a hard life on the edge of the world, the Banuk are an insular people who will take some convincing when it comes to accepting Aloy as an equal.

However, the Banuk are in the midst of a problem that only you can solve. It seems that the mountain upon which they worship and the local machines have been infected by a daemon which makes them more terrifying and difficult to take down. It's up to you to prove your mettle and save the tribe. Of course, you'll also run into other Outsiders, like Carja and Oseram, during the course of your adventures.

So what else is new?

There are plenty of other little things scattered throughout the Frozen Wilds which add to the experience, the play time, and in turn, the bang for your buck. There is a whole new Traveler skill tree to drop points into which will provide you with aid in this new portion of the world. Aside from three new machines to battle, there is the addition of the small towers scattered across the map that provide buffs for said machines and essentially serve as a sort of area capture mechanic.

There are a few puzzles that provided the only frustration for me, not in that they were difficult but that I felt they slowed the flow of the story. Throughout the map, you can find plenty of new data points which just enrich the existing story even further. In addition, there are some all-new collectibles to add color and give completionists a new goal to go after. Finally, there's a new regional currency in the Frozen Wilds which you can acquire and use to purchase all kinds of new gear.

Is it worth it?

For twenty bucks and a 10-hour expansion of an already fantastic game, I would say that The Frozen Wilds is absolutely worth your time and money. If you played the core game and you loved it the way I did, I have no doubt that you will enjoy your time in The Frozen Wilds. It may not be the biggest expansion ever offered but it fits so well into the existing game that it absolutely serves to deepen a world that I already love being in.

Anker's 6-port USB wall charger offers 60W of output for just $20

0

Charge six devices at once!

Is this deal for me?

There's nothing worse than needing to charge up a bunch of devices at the same time and having to swap cables between devices to try and get them some extra power. There are lots of different solutions that charge multiple devices, but not all of them are equal.

Anker is currently selling its 6-port 60W USB Wall Charger for just $19.59 at Amazon when you use the coupon code NEWP2123 during checkout. Each port is capable of charging at up to 2.4A, and plugging in more than one device doesn't slow things down.

If you have a new iPhone 8 or iPhone X, or a newer Android device, you'll be able to get quicker charging speeds, though this won't support Qualcomm's Quick Charge.

TL;DR

  • What makes this deal worth considering? - Odds are you have a lot of gadgets around the house, and they tend to need to be charged at the same time. This allows you to charge six of your favorite devices at the same time, and with 60 watts of power output, you won't be charging them forever.
  • Things to know before you buy! - You'll need to add your own USB cables to this, which is better because you can then charge using all different cables at the same time. The unit is backed by an 18-month warranty.

See at Amazon
