It would be easy to write this and beat OnePlus with its #NeverSettle hashtag, perhaps throwing in ‘And isn’t it ironic…Don’t you think?’ while I’m at it. But I won’t. Instead, let me say, that the OnePlus 2 boasts some high-end components, from the Snapdragon 810 processor, the 3GB/4GB of RAM, the super-quick camera to the 3,300mAh battery. That’s notwithstanding the amazing price of $329 for the 16GB and $389 for the 64GB variants. Fantastic prices, really. But, in reaching those price-points, what features did OnePlus leave out?

Someone needs to have a word with the executives at TracFone and Walmart. Total Wireless, a carrier operated by TracFone and available exclusively through Walmart, is attempting to sell customers a device that was released in May 2012. The latest commercial from Total Wireless shows that the Galaxy S III can be purchased for $250.
Correct, a carrier actually thinks that it is completely fine for a phone from three years ago to be
priced at $250 sold in 2015.
Today, Amazon is hosting its Prime Day with great deals on products exclusive for Prime members. If you haven’t signed up already, you can do so and still take advantage of the abundance of deals. Customers get a 30-day free trial and then have to pay $99 per year for the service. Amazon’s own products are part of the celebration but some, such as the Fire TV Stick, Echo, and Fire HD 7 Kids Edition have already sold out. There are still a few products from Amazon still available at a discount and the company could always restock and take more orders.
By now you’ve probably heard about Prime Day on July 15th, Amazon’s 20th Anniversary sales event that is purely for Prime subscribers. One of the first deals to be publicised for UK dwellers is from OPPO, who tweeted that its R5 and Find 7 smartphones will be discounted as part of the celebration. Read more
