If you’re having an existential crisis trying to figure out exactly when Black Friday 2016 begins and ends, the answer you seek is simple: it doesn’t matter, just strap in and enjoy the ride. The Black Friday 2016 sales event began more than a week ago at many stores including Best Buy, but the heat really turned up on Thanksgiving day. Now, however, top retailers like Best Buy are giving it everything they’ve got and offering up hundreds, even thousands of the best deals they can muster.
Best Buy is always a favorite for anyone on the hunt for TVs, computers, smartphones, tablets and just about any other gadgets and gear you can think of. In this post, we’ll show you the best buys Best Buy has to offer this year for Black Friday 2016. More →
Black Friday is such a massive shopping event in the United States that it can no longer be contained by a single 24-hour period. Instead, Black Friday continues to spill over into the days (and weeks) preceding and following the actual Friday after Thanksgiving. We’ve seen this more than ever before with Black Friday 2016, but the real sales have now begun to launch and we’re finding shockingly good deals across a number of retailer websites this year — including Walmart, a perennial favorite of bargain hunters across the US.
Walmart’s big in-store Black Friday sales event kicks off at 6:00 PM local time tonight, but if you’re smart, your Black Friday 2016 shopping will be done long before then. How? Nearly all of the killer deals coming to Walmart stores this evening and tomorrow are already available online on the Walmart website, along with free shipping. In this post, we’ll show you some of the best deals you’ll find this Black Friday season, and they’re all live right now. More →
We all know that Black Friday is actually a month-long sales event these days, but the real action starts on the Monday preceding Black Friday. And the real real action starts on Thanksgiving, which just so happens to be today. If you plan on doing some bargain hunting this year, you have a whole lot to be thankful for on Thanksgiving this year and it all begins right now, because Best Buy has ended its pre-Black Friday sale and officially kicked off its big Black Friday 2016 sale.
If you plan on visiting a Best Buy store today, you’ll have to wait until 5:00 PM local time to start shopping — though you’ll probably have to wait in line for at least an hour or two before then if you have any hope of getting in on the best bargains. Of course, you could just be smart about it and shop almost all of the same deals online, right now, from the comfort of your own home. More →
Here at BGR, we do holiday gift guides a little differently than most. Last year we put together a guide we called the “un-gift guide,” which was a collection of lesser-known gift ideas. While most sites simply run through all of the most popular products they’ve covered over the past few months, we spent a tremendous amount of time looking for products that were off the beaten path. After all, you want to make an impression when you give a gift, and lesser-known products add something special into the mix.
This year, we’re keeping with tradition and sticking with gift ideas that are anything but common, but we’re going to switch things up a bit. Instead of just giving you a list of devices or even splitting them into product categories, we’re going to show you the perfect gift (or gifts, in some cases) for each different type of person in your life. From the savvy young tech fan and the discerning audiophile to the artistic child and the outdoorsy adventurer, we’ve got everyone you know covered in this comprehensive gift guide. More →
When Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus this past September, there were almost no surprises left. The phones’ “boring” new design had leaked months ahead of the event, as it always does, and nearly all of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus’s new features had already been revealed by insiders. We knew about the new cameras, we new about the new components, and of course we knew that the 3.5mm headphone jack would no longer be included on the new iPhones. The biggest surprise ended up being a second new color option for Apple’s 2016 iPhones.
The matte black color that replaced Space Gray had already leaked, and there were murmurs of a possible new deep blue color coming to the iPhone 7. Instead, Apple revealed a stunning new Jet Black color with a glossy, mirror-like finish. The new color is so popular that it’s still next to impossible to walk into a store and buy a Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus. And since it’s so popular, it goes without saying that Samsung was going to do everything in its power to copy it as quickly as possible. More →

Behold: The last iPhone wallpaper site you will ever need.
Wallpapers are an oddly important part of the smartphone experience. We spend a tremendous amount of time on our home screens, and we want wallpapers that suit our own individual tastes. This is especially true when it comes to the iPhone, since customization options are so limited. Some people like to use photos they capture themselves as wallpapers, but most people like to use high-quality wallpapers that come from elsewhere.
Finding a good source of iPhone wallpapers isn’t always easy, so we share good resources from time to time as we come across them. But a new collection available to anyone and everyone for free could very well be the last wallpaper site we ever need to share. More →
Black Friday 2016 is in full swing, and there’s a very good chance that you can finish all of your holiday shopping this year before Black Friday even rolls around. We’ve already told you about a number of big Black Friday sales that began earlier this week, and we covered the five best early Black Friday sales in this post on Monday. Highlights include Walmart, Amazon and Best Buy, and all of these deals are open to the general public.
Of course, there are also some big pre-Black Friday sales that are only available to members. This type of sale is popular at stores like Costco and BJ’s Wholesale, where you need to be a member anyway in order to shop in their physical locations. But there’s another members-only Black Friday sale going on today, and this is a big one that you’re definitely going to want to check out.
For one day only, Best Buy members have access to dozens of Black Friday deals — including several doorbusters — that won’t be available again until the store’s official Black Friday sale kicks off on Thanksgiving. But don’t worry, you don’t have to pay a dime to become a member and we’ll tell you everything you need to know. More →
First, the good news: HTC just unveiled what is easily one of the best new Android smartphones of 2016. The handset, dubbed the HTC 10 evo, features a large 5.5-inch Super LCD 3 display with quad HD resolution and a pixel density of 534 ppi. It sports a 2.0 GHz Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage plus microSDXC support. It ships with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, and it packs HTC’s latest 16-megapixel camera with phase detection auto focus and optical image stabilization. It’s also the first ever all-metal Android phone to feature IP57 water- and dust-resistance.
So, what’s the bad news? The odds are pretty good that you’ll never be able to buy one. More →
