$_57If you need a great phone and aren't interested in a contract, but you're willing to compromise on what's technically the cutting edge, you're in a good position to save a bit of money. For example, take this perfectly good 32GB HTC One M7 (that's the one before the one they're selling now). If you're OK with a refurbished phone, you can pick up a white or black one from eBay for $249.99, well below the retail price.

HTCOneE8-ThumbThe HTC One M8 is an Android device that looks and feels premium. However, its price tag suggests the same.

This more affordable option comes in priced at 24 monthly payments of roughly $20.84, which adds up to $500.

Nexus5-ThumbThe better part of a year has passed since the launch of the Nexus 5, but deals are popping up on eBay as regularly as ever. This time we're looking at the 32GB option available in black or white for $379. That may sound only marginally cheaper than the $399 the phone goes for in the Play Store, but when you factor in the free shipping and the lack of sales tax everywhere except in New York, you are looking at saving at least $50.

Sprint-ThumbSources are saying that Sprint will soon offer a Sony smartphone in the US for the first time. We can't tell you who these sources are, but they're the kind that have spoken to Reuters and The Wall Street Journal in two separate reports. And the device apparently won't be cheap either. We're talking about an upcoming Xperia flagship. With Sony expected to unveil the Z3 at IFA next week, well, you can fill in the blanks from here.

57201463240PM_635_huawei_ascend_p7Samsung was the first to selectively boost system performance when a benchmark app was run, but it was forced to backpedal pretty quickly on that one. The latest OEM to try and sneak one past the benchmarks is Huawei with its new-ish Ascend P7. Futuremark is wise to this game, though, and has pulled the P7 from the 3DMark top phone charts.

The Ascend P7 isn't running a top-of-the-line ARM chip like the Snapdragon 801 and Tegra K1 devices that dominate the charts.

here logoNokia is generally regarded as the best maker of Windows-powered phones on the market, which is probably why Microsoft snatched them up. While most of that attention is focused on the Finnish company's solid hardware, Nokia's custom HERE mapping platform has also received rave reviews, with many saying it outperforms Microsoft's own maps. Now Nokia is bringing a beta version of HERE Maps to Android... but strangely, only on Samsung hardware.

In July, Chrome Beta was updated with a new interface that more closely adhered to Google's new design vision - material design. Fitting with Google's occasional habit of stripping things down during major refreshes (see Google Maps on the web), many elements of the interface were sliced, rearranged, or simplified, including the tab indicator in the top right corner of the screen. Previously, the indicator showed users how many tabs were open, but after the redesign it simply displayed a square (or two stacked squares if you had multiple tabs open).

397273-htc-one-mini-at-tThe HTC One Mini might not have had the high-end specs of its big brother, but it was still a stylish little phone. The AT&T variant has been a little behind on the updates, as carrier phones often are, but today that changes—the Sense 6 OTA for the One Mini on AT&T is rolling out.

AT&T's support page isn't entirely clear on what features are included in this OTA (4.13.502.3), except to say there will be HTC Sense 6 highlights, AT&T Address Book integration, Uber, Ready to Go, Usage manager, Mail and Live (Yahoo), and HTC Sense 5.5 highlights.

GalaxyS5-ThumbNot all updates are created equal. Some are the kind that keep us up at night, leaving us banging on the virtual update button in hopes that it will appear. Others, well, if they had slipped in under the radar, we wouldn't have noticed a difference. AT&T's latest Galaxy S5 update is one of those. This over-the-air software (version G900AUCU2ANG3) bump provides a number of minor enhancements and security patches that, while dandy, aren't the equivalent of putting new rims on that ride.

nexusae0_1_thumb36The Shield Tablet is a great device, but it's about to get even better with update v1.1. The OTA (clocking in at a lean 84.1MB) is hitting devices as you read this, so owners would to well to check the update menu. NVIDIA doesn't usually stage these OTAs, so all Shield Tablets should have the update available.

This version is mostly about optimization and cleaning up the rough edges, but that's always appreciated.
