How did Motorola spend its new year? Why, by significantly cutting the price of the off-contract Moto X, of course. The company announced that the Moto X now starts at $399 on al US carriers, even if you get a Moto Maker-made edition.
The only other time you could have gotten the Moto X for cheaper is when Motorola handed out $150-off promotion codes in their holiday deals bonanza (which made the cheapest Moto X just $350). While the price tag still isn’t quite as sweet as the everyday tag of the Nexus 5, the Moto X has proven to be a capable phone deserving of a lot of attention.
It’s a pretty solid device that excels in areas of user experience, battery life, and — for a fresh change of pace — timely upgrades. It was one of the first Android devices to receive Android 4.4 KitKat, and Motorola says we can expect more of that commitment throughout the device’s natural life cycle. Being able to get it for as low as $399 makes it that much better. Head to Motorola’s site to get started.
