The official start of the holiday shopping season is here, with Black Friday in full swing, and Cyber Monday right around the corner. With hundreds of retailers competing for your attention, it can be hard to make sense of it all and find just the right deal for yourself or for the Android lover in your life.
We have three great roundups to help you out (Android smartphones, Android tablets, and Android apps), and in this post, we take a look at some of the best deals for Android users available on Amazon.
HTC One for one penny on contract
HTC’s aluminum flagship is still a beast of a phone, even if it’s no longer on the first tier in terms of hardware. With a great camera, powerful speakers, and a handful of interesting software additions, the sleek HTC One can make a great gift for any Android lover.
Moto X for one penny on Verizon
If you’re on Verizon and you’re looking for an affordable device that is a bit more compact, the Moto X is the choice to make. The device packs always-on voice controls, a smart notification system, and a bunch of other parlor tricks, and it’s already been updated to Android 4.4 KitKat.
Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 for $299 ($100 off)
The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 doesn’t have the stylus of the Note series, but it’s still a great Android tablet for work and play. The Tab 3 10.1 is powered by a speedy Intel processor and comes with a microSD card slot, perfect for consuming media on that big screen.
Note 3 just $169 on Verizon
If you like big screens and powerful specs, you will love the Galaxy Note 3. And what’s not to love about this lean, mean, mobile machine? The Note 3 comes with a Snapdragon 800 processor, a smart stylus, and a bevy of software features that will make you more productive than ever.

An even cheaper Chromecast
Google’s Chromecast HDMI dongle turns your TV in an extension of your Android device. If you regularly watch Netflix, HBO Go, or other streaming services, the Chromecast is a must have. Amazon offers it for just $30 and throws in $6 in Google Play Store credit to kick start your binge watching.
Party with the Jawbone Jambox, $50 off
When the whole family is at home, music doesn’t always make it through the chatter and laughter. Regardless if you want to listen to Christmas carols or a new rap song, the Jawbone Jambox makes it easy to pump up the music, wherever you are.
Pebble is now on Amazon
Pebble connects via Bluetooth to your Android smartphone and gives you notifications and messages right on your wrist. Some call it “the smartwatch done right”, we call it a great gift for this holiday season. The device isn’t on sale, but it just became available on Amazon for $149. We encourage you to give it a try.
