Moto razr 5G sees first discount of the year at $600 off in spring sale
Motorola is now launching a new spring smartphone sale across its lineup of unlocked Android handsets. Shipping is free across the board, and Amazon is matching many of the markdowns, too. A particular highlight has to be the Motorola razr 5G 256GB at $800 in several styles. Normally fetching $1,400, this one is also matched at Amazon and on sale for the very first time this year. Matching our previous Black Friday mention, this is $600 off and an all-time low.
Harking back to those old-school flip phones from the mid-2000s, the second-generation razr smartphone arrives with much the same folding design centered around a 6.2-inch OLED display. That’s alongside 5G connectivity as well as 256GB of onboard storage and a Snapdragon 765G processor. Compared to Samsung’s latest, you’re getting a larger secondary screen on the outside as well as a notably more capable 48MP camera sensor at a lower price. You can get a closer look in our launch coverage.
Best World Backup Day storage discounts now live
Happy World Backup Day folks. Amazon has a notable selection of storage deals featuring microSD cards, portable and internal SSDs, and more from WD, SanDisk, Samsung, and others starting at $14. We have listed some of our top picks down below but one standout is the SanDisk 2TB Extreme Portable Solid-State Drive at $200. This carried a $290 to $320 price tag for most of last year before dropping down to the $250 range during the holidays.
Today’s offer matches the 2022 low and is the lowest price we can find on one of the best 2TB portable SSDs out there. Data transfers at up to 1,050MB/s with support for USB 3.2 Gen 2 over USB-C and a protective rubber frame make this a solid choice for any EDC. It also has a two-meter drop rating, IP55 water and dust resistance, and features a handy carabiner loop in the top corner. Head below for plenty of notable storage deals on hard drives, microSD cards, SSDs, and more. Plus, you can save on a collection of NAS, too.
