Electronics Deals – Sept. 11th, 2017: Samsung SmartThings, UE MEGABOOM, & More

September 11, 2017 - Written By Justin Diaz

Today Amazon has some great new deals and discounts on products, like Samsung’s SmartThings Smart Home Hub which allows you to connect all your smart home products and control them wirelessly using the SmartThings companion app from your smartphone. Right now you can grab the SmartThings Smart Home Hub for just $49.99, and it works with Alexa so if you also have an Echo speaker you’ll get even easier control as you can manage things with just your voice.

Also on sale right now is the UE MEGABOOM, which is the biggest and most powerful wireless Bluetooth speaker to come from Logitech’s Ultimate Ears brand. It’s a little bit bigger than your standard Bluetooth speaker that you might keep on the desk, but it isn’t so large that it’s going to take up too much space, and for its reasonable size it puts out some great quality audio with lots of bass and pretty clear sound. While one speaker is more than enough to fill up a room, you can connect multiple BOOM or MEGABOOM speakers together for a surround sound experience, so you can have three or four hooked up, all of them in sync with each other. Motorola’s Moto G4 Plus is also on sale right now and it’s the 64GB model, unlocked and ready to be used on any of the four major wireless networks. This is also a new phone and not a refurbished unit, and it’s available for just $228 right now.

As always, some item deals will have an expiration date so keep those in mind when looking things over.

Moto G4 Plus 64GB Unlocked - White

The Moto G4 Plus has been one of the better phones to come from Lenovo and Motorola over the past couple of years, and even though the Moto G5 Plus is already out that leaves room to find some pretty good prices on the previous generation model. For example, you can get the 64GB white Moto G4 Plus for $228 right now on Amazon, and the phone comes unlocked so you can use it with networks like T-Mobile and AT&T, but it’s also fully compatible with Sprint and Verizon as well. The Moto G4 Plus comes with a fingerprint sensor on the front that can be used for both mobile payments and unlocking the device.  It comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera for photos, and a 5-megapixel front camera for selfies and video chat. It has a 3,000mAh battery and some pretty decent battery life too, so you can be sure that it will last a while on a single charge. When it comes to mid-range handsets, the Moto G line is one that tends to have the best value as Motorola and Lenovo pack the devices full of great hardware and features at a lower cost.
