Electronic Deals – April 23, 2018: Samsung Galaxy S8, August Smart Lock 2nd Gen & More


Today Amazon is having a great deal on Samsung's flagship from 2017, the Galaxy S8, with 64GB of storage for just $600 right now. This is the U.S. model and it comes unlocked with a warranty, so it can be used on any of the U.S. networks. Normally the phone is $725 at full retail price for it even with the Galaxy S9 having been released earlier this year, so this is a pretty good price. Though it may not have been the lowest the Galaxy S8 has ever been any savings on a top-tier flagship smartphone like this one is worth considering, especially when you look at the features and specs that it offers.

Amazon is also having a deal on the second generation of the August smart lock. If you're looking to begin setting up your smart home then one of the things you will definitely want to look into a smart lock to make it quick and easy to get into the home and lock it up when you leave, as you can lock the lock remotely from your smartphone via the companion app. It also works with Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa, which is perfect because Amazon is also having a sale on its Amazon Tap portable speaker, which is powered by Alexa. This is similar to the Echo and Echo Dot in that it functions as a smart speaker, but because it's portable you can take it with you anywhere, because it's battery-powered. You can still plug it in though as you will need to charge it from time to time.

All of the deals listed below are accurate for today, and will expire at midnight PST on their expiration date. But keep in mind that some of these deals may end before then, if stock runs low or simply runs out. So if you are looking to get in on one of these deals, you'll want to do it as soon as possible.

Smart speakers are much more prominent now than they were just a couple of years ago around the time that Amazon released the first Echo. Not many of them are portable though, but the Amazon Tap is which means you can take it with you pretty much anywhere. Since it’s powered by a battery you can move it from room to room around the home and even take it with you when you leave. It has up to nine hours of battery life so you shouldn’t need to charge it more than two or three times a week depending on how much you use it throughout the day. You can also use it to stream music from Spotify, iHeart Radio, Pandora and other popular music streaming services. Lastly, since it’s powered by Alexa you can use it to control other smart products that are compatible with Alexa.
