Sony WF-1000XM3 review: The only true wireless earbuds you need

Sony WF-1000XM3
By Sony
$ 228 purchasing options

Sound quality
Google Assistant integration
Modern design
Auto play/pause
Adaptive sound
Intuitive touch controls


Large charging case
No water-resistance

Bottom Line

The Sony WF-1000XM3 may be costly, but the excellent ANC performance makes it easy to justify the earbuds. Sony’s tri-contact point mechanism keeps the earbuds in place without sacrificing comfort. A big drawback is the lack of high-quality codec support — no aptX or LDAC; however the DSEE HX processing facilitates clear audio. If you want the best of what true wireless tech has to offer, get these.

Fotor makes photo edits easy for only $19.99

Portrait Woman Photo Editing

When it comes to getting a photo just right, doing it yourself can prove to be a challenge. Programs like Photoshop can prove to be intimidating for new users. Fotor, on the other hand, wants to simplify the process while maintaining the beautiful results. For a limited time, you can grab a one-year subscription for only $ 19.99.

How does that price compare to a Photoshop subscription? Well, Adobe wants $ 20 for a single month of access. You’re probably going to spend most of the first month just learning how to use Photoshop and then have to pay for month two. 

Edit photos, create designs, and more with minimal hassle.

Fotor emphasizes simplicity in the photo editing process. You can touch-up, crop, and add effects with the click of a button. Adobe may make you jump back and forth between programs, but Fotor is an all-in-one editing machine

It’s even easy to turn your photos into displays when you finish editing. Fotor features tons of templates and a built-in collage maker that will have you showing off your work with ease. Your portfolio or social media will never have looked more impressive.

Fotor subscription at a glance:

  • Edit photos easily with tools for cropping, resizing, and more.
  • Add professional touches like blemish and wrinkle removal.
  • Capture wider ranges of color and lighting with Fotor HDR.
  • Create photo collages easily with the built-in creator.

While other people are still trying to learn the tricks of Photoshop, you’re making your photos look just right with Fotor. You can save money and skip the learning curve with this limited-time deal. A one-year Fotor Pro subscription retails for over $ 100, but this is an opportunity to grab all of the features for $ 19.99.

The deal ends soon, so take advantage of the deal while you still can at the button below.

Looking to pick up a quality Android tablet, but faced with limited options due to budget constraints? Then this deal is for you!

The Asus ZenPad S 8.0, released in June this year, is now selling on Amazon for $ 159 only.

Deal: Unlocked 16GB Sony Xperia M4 Aqua only $200 from Amazon

Screen Shot 2015-11-04 at 10.53.33 AM

Announced back in March 2014, Sony’s Xperia M4 Aqua was thrown into the competitive mid-range smartphone market with a big price point at $ 350 unlocked. It’s not a particularly bad phone, it’s just never been worth the premium price point the company was asking for it. If you’ve been eyeing this device and have been waiting for the price to come down a bit, now’s your chance. Amazon is currently selling it for the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

Right now, you can purchase the 16GB unlocked Sony Xperia M4 Aqua in Black for just $ 199.99. This is $ 150 off the phone’s price at launch, and roughly $ 100 off what the device is normally sold for. The only real caveat here is that it’s only compatible with GSM networks, so you’ll need to be on AT&T or T-Mobile (or other GSM MVNOs) to use it.

As a refresher, the Xperia M4 Aqua comes with a 5.0-inch 720p IPS LCD display, an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM and microSD expansion up to 128GB. It also has a really nice 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera. The 2400mAh battery isn’t the most long-lasting cell we’ve ever used, though we’d say it’s comparable to other devices at this price point. It’s also IP68 certified for dust and water resistance. If you’d like to learn more about the M4 Aqua, be sure to check out our full review.

The Xperia M4 Aqua isn’t worth the money at $ 350, but it certainly is at $ 200. No, it’s not the most powerful mid-range device on the market, but you certainly could do worse for the price. If you’re interested, be sure to head to the Amazon link below to grab one before they’re all gone.

Get the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 + Watch bundle for only $299.99

alcatel onetouch idol 3 review aa (25 of 27)

Those looking to get an affordable handset should really pay attention to today’s deal, as it may also get you a smartwatch for a very low added price. Alcatel is offering its back-to-school bundle for only $ 299.99, which includes both the OneTouch Idol 3 and the OneTouch Watch.

This proves to be a great deal when you consider these products’ original pricing. The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 costs $ 279.99 (currently marked down to $ 249.99) and the OneTouch Watch is usually $ 149.99. This means the back-to-school bundle would save you about $ 100-$ 130. Not a bad deal, right?


By the way, you wouldn’t be stuck with a bad smartphone at all. The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 happens to be one of the best budget phones of the year. We had a great time reviewing it, and it managed to walk away with an 8.8/10 score.

This handset can perform relatively well. That Snapdragon 615 processor and 2 GB of RAM make it run fast enough to keep the casual users content. It also has a large 5.5-inch display that looks great, and its dual front-facing speakers can beat even some of the high-end devices in the market.


As for the Alcatel OneTouch Watch – just keep in mind this is not an Android Wear product, so you won’t have access to all those apps Google’s wearable platform touts. Now, this doesn’t take much away from its value. I tested it at CES 2015 and can tell you it has enough features to keep many of us happy.

Want in on this deal? All you have to do is go get the bundle either from Amazon or Alcatel’s official page. The offer ends on August 9th, so you will want to sign up before then. By the way, the offer does include Amazon Prime shipping, so you can have this bundle in your hands very, very soon!

Are any of you guys signing up for this one?

Deal: unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6 only $499.99 on eBay!

samsung galaxy s6 review aa (4 of 45)

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is definitely one of the best smartphones around, but it’s by no means cheap. In fact, it happens to be one of the most expensive phones in the market, making it seem like that super thin profile is a knife cutting right through your pocket. Thankfully, here at Android Authority we are always on the lookout for great deals to share with you. Today might be your lucky day, because eBay’s latest offer is hot!

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is currently being sold for only $ 499.99 on eBay. This is a pretty awesome deal considering the device is new to the market and usually goes for $ 600 at the lowest. Essentially, you get a $ 100 discount, but that is not the only treat buyers would get.

samsung galaxy s6 review aa (3 of 45)

This phone is unlocked and new. Not refurbished or used… completely new. To make matters even better, the eBay seller is allowing you to choose between a bevy of available colors, including black, white, gold and blue. Oh, and shipping is completely free in the USA.

I would seriously jump all over this deal if I was looking to get an off-contract, unlocked, high-end smartphone. My only gripe with the Samsung Galaxy S6 is its ridiculous battery life, but if you can get past that issue it’s one hell of a phone. It has top-notch specs, an insanely good camera and the build quality we have been begging Samsung for.

You can go ahead and read our Samsung Galaxy S6 review to see what this phone is all about. You can’t really beat this price! Have a blast purchasing it and hit the comments to let us know if you are signing up for this deal. Is it what you were looking for?

We already know that the 2GB of RAM variant of the ZenFone 2 is being offered in various markets for around $ 200 to $ 300, and the 4GB variant will cost around $ 450 in many regions. However, for one day only, you’ll be able to score the higher-end model for a much cheaper price tag.
