Cell Phones

We understand how important it is for you to stay connected with your friends, family and career. That’s why there’s something for everyone, with an extensive selection of unlocked, contract and no-contract cell phones and plans available.

 

If you’re trying to decide what phone and plan are best for you, start by choosing a carrier that covers your local area, then consider their services and the number of minutes you are going to need. Many providers offer discounted monthly rates that include voice, text and data. Signing up for a fixed-term contract (usually for one or two years) will often get you a great price on a phone, but if you don’t want to make that long-term commitment, you might want the flexibility of a prepaid or no-contract phone. You can buy instant prepaid minutes and data at eShopoly.com whenever you need them, so you never have to worry about coming up short.

 

With a wide selection of phones, including iPhone and Android smartphones, it’s easy to find a device with the features you are looking for. There are also cell phone accessories, including cases, headsets, chargers, Bluetooth devices, car mounts and more.

For extra savings on your electronics, you may want to consider a refurbished device. These are typically open-box returns from customers who never used the product. Each item can be different. You can also search for special offers, such as Rollbacks or Clearance items.

eShopoly.com lets you sort electronics by price, customer rating or features, so finding the right device for you is a breeze. Save Money. Live Better.”

What to look for when shopping for a cell phone

From basic mobiles to high-end smartphones, cell phones keep the world connected. A lot has changed in the world of mobile devices in the last decade, so it’s important to keep track of the latest technologies before making a purchase. With the extensive selection of cell phones available at eShopoly, you can find the right handset for you no matter your needs and preferences.

When you’re considering a new mobile device, there are lots of things to take into account in order to make an informed purchase. From choosing the right provider and payment plan to making sure you take advantage of the latest improvements in handset technology, you’ll want to consider your needs and budget before making a decision.

Choose the right provider and plan for you

Selecting a wireless carrier is probably the first decision that you have to make when you want a new phone. In most cases, this also determines the selection of phones you can choose from. You can opt for a contract or no-contract carrier, or go for a cell phone with a pre-paid plan. A contract carrier offers various monthly plans that can include minutes, texts and data, as well as a handset. You generally have to enter into a 12- or 24-month contract. No-carrier contracts allow you to get service from a smaller carrier such as a mobile virtual network operator without the yoke of a two-year contract. Finally, pay-as-you-go or pre-paid plans are the most flexible option, as you can avoid surprises on your bill by topping up on an as-needed basis. Various bundles and data packs are available via pay-as-you-go options with most carriers.

Confirm the coverage:

Large carriers such as Verizon or AT&T offer good coverage for high-speed Internet service across the country. You can confirm the coverage by using a zip code map provided by the carrier. Alternatively, ask your family or friends how well their phones work in a particular area.

Decide how much data you need: As not all providers offer the same deals for minutes, texts and data, think about your regular usage before deciding on a carrier. If you spend more time texting and calling, then you only need a light data use plan. On the other hand, if you like to watch videos and download content on your phone, you may need a plan with 4GB or more.

Essential features to have in a smartphone

There’s no shortage of choices when you compare smartphones, so look at some of the basic features that can make or break a device. Some of the features that you need to pay particular attention to include:

Screen: Opt for the highest possible resolution for crisp text and vibrant pictures. A minimum of 800×480 pixels is recommended, but for an excellent experience, try to find a screen with a 1280×720-pixel resolution.

Processor:

Look for a phone that comes with at least a dual-core processor so you can run all the apps and games you want without any trouble.
Camera: Many high-end smartphones offer DSLR-like quality photos, so look for a model with at least an 8-megapixel camera for best results.

Decide on an operating system

The main operating systems on the market are Apple iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry.

Apple iOS: Available only on iPhones, Apple s iOS is easy to master and offers a variety of proprietary features such as the Siri voice-controlled assistant and the Apple Music library.

Android: Powered by Google, Android is the operating system with the largest selection of handsets on the market. Unlike Apple’s iOS, this OS is highly customizable.

Windows: Ideal if you want to unify your Windows laptop or desktop with your mobile device, Windows comes with a complex OS that offers flexible access to the same apps you have on your computer.

BlackBerry: A good option for those who don’t want to let physical keyboards go, BlackBerry phones run on their own BlackBerry OS and come with multiple dedicated features for business users.

Consider battery life

Most cell phones can handle at least a day’s worth of phone calls, texts and web browsing on a single charge. However, if you like to use your phone for music or gaming on a daily basis, you may need to consider getting a model with a longer battery life, which generally needs to be a 3,000 mAh battery or above. Heavy users may consider purchasing an external battery for their phone to avoid running out of juice at the end of the day.

With our wide range of cell phones, it’s easy to find the exact features you want in your new handset. Once you have figured out what your new phone is going to be, have a look at some of our cell phone accessories such as cases, car mounts and Bluetooth to get the most from your device, all at Every Day Low Prices.

Electronics

If you’re considering a new laptop, looking for a powerful new car stereo or shopping for a new HDTV, we make it easy to find exactly what you need at a price you can afford. We offer Every Day Low Prices on TVs, laptops, cell phones, tablets and iPads, video games, desktop computers, cameras and camcorders, audio, video and more.

Computers: Desktops, Laptops, iPads and Tablets

The first thing to think about when considering a new computer is whether you want a desktop, a laptop or a tablet. If you plan to use your computer primarily in one location, like a home office, a desktop computer may be your solution. You can get a more powerful computer for your money, and you will have more upgrade options should you decide to expand. Plus, you can get a larger monitor (or two) and arrange your keyboard in a way that’s ergonomically optimal for you.

If you need a portable computer, however, a laptop can still be very powerful and affordable, and you can always connect it to a separate monitor and keyboard when you’re back at your desk.

As a third option, if you find that you use your computer mostly for email, web browsing and watching videos, you may be able to get away with using a tablet as your primary computer. Add a keyboard and you gain most of the functionality of a standard laptop. Touchscreen laptops are yet another great way to get the best of both worlds.

You should also consider the speed and processing power you need. Single- and dual-core processors are OK for basic functions like sending and receiving email and doing some simple web browsing, but you’ll want a quad-core computer if you do a lot of gaming or video streaming.

 

Stay connected and entertained with iPads and tablets

tablets are wonderful, portable, multipurpose computers with a wide range of functions for work and play, so it’s no wonder why they continue to grow in popularity.

More Tablets

If you’re looking for other tablet PCs, you’ll find plenty of choices, including highly economical ones.

Look for a tablet with at least 8 gigabytes of capacity and get one with an available SD slot if you want to expand your storage options later on. Also, pay attention to speed: 1.5 gigahertz or more is best if you’ll be running multiple apps at the same time.

One popular tablet is the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. You can go from an ultraportable tablet to a complete laptop in a snap (literally) wherever you happen to be thanks to the folding keyboard.

Step up your game with wearable technology

The future is now. Step into a more efficient lifestyle with wearable technology from eShopoly. Our wearable tech options include products that help you stay healthy, improve your ability to capture memories and keep you entertained. Fitness and activity monitors, high-tech headphones and video-recording devices you can strap to your chest are all part of our product offerings in this section. Whether you’re looking to accomplish a health and fitness goal or you want to make your next vacation amazing, the Wearable Technology section has everything you need. And thanks to our Every Day Low Prices, these advanced tech products can be yours today.

Fitness trackers

Fitness trackers are part of the new wave of wearable technology. Equipped with various sensors, these small devices clip onto your shirt, strap around your wrist or hang around your neck, allowing you to simply wear them and let them do their jobs as you go about your day. Sensitive technology then measures your activity and movement, keeping track of how much time you spend completely stationary and how much time you spend walking, running, swimming, climbing stairs and otherwise moving your body.

The fitness tracker device then stores this information in a tiny internal computer system, which you can access in several different ways that may vary based on the brand and model you choose. Some fitness trackers have readouts right on the tracker itself, allowing you to quickly monitor your activity, while others require you to plug the device into a computer or use a Bluetooth link with a smartphone app to read what’s recorded. In addition to tracking movement, fitness trackers can monitor stats like how much sleep you get so you can have a complete picture of your health and improve your overall wellness.

If you aren’t sure which tracker to choose, you may want to start by focusing on a specific company that seems to get good reviews for its fitness tracker products. Each company may offer a variety of different activity or fitness tracker options that have different levels of activity monitoring. If you simply want a pedometer or basic fitness tracker to keep yourself accountable for exercising every day, feel free to focus on the lower end of the price range for these devices. Price tends to scale up as trackers get more complex and detailed.

Sports and action camcorders

With rugged, waterproof and lightweight camcorder options on offer, this section has great options for globetrotters and thrill seekers who want to record their adventures. The action camcorder category offers a high level of quality and reliability that’ll result in amazing videos you can keep for your personal collection, share on social media or edit into a reel that showcases your athletic or filmmaking skills. This product category includes a variety of different camcorder options in addition to a range of handy accessories that you can use to get a clear, steady picture in any situation. From helmet mounts that let you passively film as you snowboard, mountain bike, skateboard or skydive to handheld tripods that make it easy to grip onto a camera without dropping it while scuba diving, hiking or just walking around, these accessories contribute to the overall quality and versatility of the cameras in this section. They also make the “wearable” aspect of the “wearable technology” category even more accessible.

Many of the cameras in this section come with a range of mounting and wearing accessories built into the cameras themselves or included in a product bundle. However, you may have additional needs or choose a camera style that doesn’t include the accessories you need to put the camera on your body or the safety equipment you require to film hands free. As you shop for a camera, make sure you have the right equipment to wear your device in the manner that makes most sense for the activities you perform, whether it’s kayaking or hiking.

Headphones

Are you ready to cut the cord and step into the future of headphone technology? The wearable tech headphones in this product category ditch wires in favor of wireless connectivity technology like Bluetooth, giving you the ability to walk around, move your head, exercise and change positions without getting all tangled up. Whether you’re in the office, on the couch or in the gym, wireless headphones offer the ultimate in audio-listening convenience. You can block out sounds and focus on the music, podcasts or audiobooks in your queue without accidentally knocking the wire out of the plug or dropping your device.

These headphones are available in a range of different colors and sizes, including some low-profile wireless options that you can wear while running or working out to keep the tunes flowing without the inconvenience of an audio cable tethering you to a device.

Make lasting memories with your camera equipment

Photography is a deeply rewarding hobby. It allows you to express yourself artistically and capture memorable moments in your life that you might otherwise have missed. While the camera on your cell phone does a nice job of capturing the activities and scenes around you, equipment made just for photography take it to a higher level. You have probably said to yourself more than once that you wish you had a better camera or camcorder to use instead of your cell phone. With the wide selection and Every Day Low Prices on cameras, camera lenses, camcorders and accessories available at eShopoly, you can go from novice to professional photographer in the blink of a camera shutter.

Cameras

Getting started as a hobbyist in photography first means determining what camera is right for your needs.

Digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras These work with a reflex mirror to capture the images you shoot with your camera. The mirror is adjustable and works with an optical viewfinder. dslr cameras work interchangeably with several different lenses, giving you a large amount of freedom when choosing distance, lighting and other options. They also give you the option of shooting automatically or manually.
Mirrorless cameras A simpler version of the DSLR camera, mirrorless cameras also work with interchangeable lenses and can go from manual to automatic shooting. These cameras use an image sensor to capture the image, which is projected onto an electronic viewfinder, which makes them much lighter than DSLR cameras.
Point-and-shoot cameras Sometimes known as a compact camera, these cameras have the flash built into them and use autofocus to create the proper amount of exposure. These are small cameras but still have lenses that zoom to capture images from far away. Some point-and-shoot cameras are also waterproof, meaning that they withstand usage in wet weather or can take photos underwater at depths of several feet.
Instant film cameras Unlike most cameras available, these still use film to capture images, which pops out of the front of the camera for an instant photograph.

Camcorders

Perhaps still photography is not what interests you most. In that case, a camcorder might deliver the memories you wish to keep for years to come. Camcorders capture the action as it happens, whether it is a child’s first birthday party, the wedding of close friends or a happy day at the beach. Most also take still photographs. The factors to consider regarding camcorders include resolution, media format, size and features.

Resolution The two choices here are standard definition and high definition (HD). To determine which one is best for you, it depends on how you plan to view the scenes you capture. If you are going to watch them on a cell phone, tablet, PC or non HDTV, standard definition is fine. However, if you are planning to watch what you shot on an HDTV, then HD is the way to go.

Media format The options for recording to here are flash memory card, built-in flash memory and hard disk drive (HDD). Built-in memory is usually limited in how much you can store at one time. Flash memory cards expand on the camcorder’s built-in memory. HDD camcorders can record for longer periods but weigh the camcorder down.

Features For the best camcorders, you want to look for ones with lenses that feature high optical zoom, which is measured by “x.” A 20x zoom magnifies images by a factor of 20 while a 40x magnifies images twice as much. Image stabilization makes images appear sharper, even when the user has shaky hands or is bumped.

Accessories

Once you have decided what kind of photography you want to pursue, and have the equipment you need to achieve this, you likely still need a few accessories to tie everything together.

Lenses Once you know what style of camera you want, you should know that many of them require the use of a lens to capture those moments you want to retain forever. When deciding on a lens, brand is a major consideration as you want a lens that fits your camera or camcorder perfectly. Prime lenses are only available at a stationary distance, such as 50mm, meaning it has a range of 50mm from the center of the lens to its focus point. Zoom lenses have a range, such as 35-80mm, which means it can adjust between 35mm and 80mm to its focal point. The other key factor is maximum aperture or the amount of light the lens uses. The lower the number, the more light it can take in.

Tripods

Tripods make it easy to capture steady photos and video, especially on uneven terrain. A typical tripod is made of metal, with rubber tips on the legs and stands between 5- and 6-feet tall when set up.
Camera bags A bag is a way to keep all of your camera or camcorder essentials in one space and protect everything at the same time. Many bags are made of metal or hard plastic, with leather and canvas as other available options. Some have foam interiors for added protection for your equipment.

Batteries and chargers

Since being near an electrical outlet when using your camera or camcorder is not likely, a battery is necessary. In fact, more than one is ideal. These hold a charge that allows your device to run for several hours. Having an additional battery allows you to pop a new one into your photo equipment when the existing one runs out of juice. Having an additional charger is a good idea, too, especially if you are shooting while on vacation or away from home.

Memory cards

These allow your camera and camcorder to hold more pictures and video. Some cameras, like camcorders, have built-in memory, but the number of photos they can hold is limited. Memory cards can add additional memory from 1GB to more than 480GB, depending on the camera.
