It's Cyber Monday, which means there are a ton of deals out there if you're willing to hunt around. If you know someone who needs to upgrade his or her smartphone, one of our favorites, the Nexus 5X, is on sale at the Google Store for $80 off. That makes it a nice, even $299.
Thanks to stock Android, a fantastic camera, a great price, and quick updates directly from Google, the new Nexus devices are the best Android phones you can buy. They're also the most secure, due to Google's monthly security update program. The device is compatible with Google's Project Fi Internet service, which may or may not be cheaper than your usual cell service, depending on your usage pattern. $80 off makes the already great price irresistible.
The Google Store is also shipping any two Chromecasts for $50, which works out to a $20 savings. You can mix and match the audio and video Chromecasts in whatever combination you want.
