Daily tech deals: Samsung Galaxy S4 under £400, Google Nexus 7 price slash, and super cheap batteries

It is Christmas next month. In other (completely unrelated) news, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has a lovely 5in display that, weighing just 130g, would slip very nicely into a stocking marked “ITProPortal." If you know of such a stocking, and would like to put an S4 in it yourself, you can find the smartphone online at Amazon being sold for £379.00 with free delivery. With a Full HD AMOLED display at 441ppi, a 13-megapixel camera and 2GB RAM, the knocked down price is more than fair. Normally retailing for £630, this makes for a swish 40 per cent saving - with free delivery thrown in on top as icing on the Christmas cake.

Elsewhere, Argos is selling the 2012 Asus Google Nexus 7 Tablet for £129.99, which includes a £10 Argos voucher thrown in to sweeten the deal. It’s an 18 per cent saving on its normal retail price of £160, and is free on in-store to pick up. The 7in Nexus is 16GB and packs a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM. It also has a 1280 x 800 pixel backlit IPS screen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which can be upgraded to version 4.3.

Finally, there is no greater symbol of organisational prowess than a drawer stocked full of batteries. If you ignore this deal and a month down the line find yourself desperately clawing at the back of your Wii controller, fingernails breaking as you attempt to pull the batteries out so you can put them into your TV remote, don’t come crying to us - your tears will move none. Why? is selling 36 pack bundles of Duracell Plus Power AAA batteries for £9.99 – juicers that normally retail for nearer £20. Plus it’s free delivery, so what are you waiting for?
