Google Play Edition smartphones and tablets are carrier unlocked devices that ship with a version of Google Android software that hasn’t been altered (much) by device makers. Google recently removed a couple of Play Edition devices from the Google Play Store — but retailer Expansys still has them in stock.
Better yet, Expansys is offering these unlocked phones and tablets for well below their list prices. You can pick up an LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition tablet for $225, a Sony Z Ultra for $350, or last year’s Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One M7 for $400.
