Deal tracker: $450 LG G2, $440 iPad mini 4G, free Disney games, more deals on phones, tablets and apps
Phones and tablets can get pretty expensive these days, where a flagship handset or a premium tablet costs as much as a decent laptop with full-scale Windows. Of course, you can't lug a large laptop in your pocket or even handbag, so we don't have much choice but follow closely for deals on our favorite mobile computing devices in the hope that the price will be just right to tip the scales in our favor. 

That's why we are rounding up some of the phone and tablet deals we've spotted today for you, so check them out in the list below, and hit the links if anything piques your interest. Naturally, if you came across anything good that's not listed, please share with your fellas in the comments below, too.

Phones


  • Factory unlocked HTC One for $449.99.

    With the HTC One+ aka HTC M8 release fast approaching, the company might be trying to clean up inventory, and $450 is a great deal for the Android phone with one of the best screens and most premium designs out there, not to mention the stereo BoomSound speakers at the front.


  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini on Sprint for free with free shipping.

    Samsung's mini Galaxy S4 doesn't have much to do with the flagship except for the name, as it sports a 4.3" display, but the price of free is certainly enticing when you get it on Sprint with a two-year contract. The discount from the normally $400 price includes a web-only switch&save amount of a Benjamin down.

Tablets


On iPad wave? eBay has the original iPad mini with LTE for $440, and with 32 GB of storage at that, a version that is tapped out at the Apple Store, and usually would have run you close to six hundred.



Accessories


  • ASUS Nexus 7 FHD Official Travel Cover in pink for $5.59. If you are man enough not to be scared by pink color, you would be able to put a wrapper on your precious Nexus 7 tablet for less than six bucks with free shipping. "Made from light and durable polymer, the New Nexus 7 FHD Travel Cover provides improved damage resistance wherever you go. Special inserts for connectors allows you to charge the New Nexus 7 FHD without removing the cover, keeping your Nexus 7 FHD constantly protected wherever you go." Shell forty cents more, and there are other colors available for $5.99, too.


  • 3-Pack of Striker Simple Sucker Phone Mounts for $9.99, with $2.99 shipping. Groupon has these suction cup mount holders for a tenner, down from the usual $17.99 price. Those can secure your gadget on any flat surface, including the treadmill controls, or your dashboard.

Apps and services



  • Spotify, Hulu+ and Zinio 60-day trial subscription for free. Best Buy Mobile offers the most generous offer we've seen for a trial subscription to media streaming services like Spotify and Hulu+ that need no introduction. Cancel any time before the trial ends and you won't be charged for the next month.

I agree. Btw your local Costco has the Galaxy S4 for free (new service) and $49.99 (upgrade) with AT&T or Verizon contract for the next couple of days. The S4 mini is $9.99, or free when buying another Verizon phone.
