Last month, Motorola slashed the price of Moto X to $99.99 on-contract when bought through Moto Maker. Additionally, many US retailers except Verizon, also dropped the price of Moto X to $99.99 for the 16GB version with a two-year agreement. The only carrier who didn’t cut the price of the Moto X is Verizon, who is still selling the device for $199.99 on-contract.
If you’re a Verizon customer planning to get your hands on the Moto X, Amazon is offering the handset for just $49.99 with a two-year agreement, if you’re upgrading your account. The deal becomes sweeter if you open up a new account or add a new line to your existing account. In that case, it will cost you just $19.99 with a contract, which is a very attractive deal for a device of this calibre.
Moto X packs a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with a clock speed of 1.7GHz with Motorola’s X8 Mobile Computing System and 2GB RAM. Other specifications include 16/32GB internal storage options, 10MP ClearPixel camera on the back, a 2,200 mAh battery and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
Motorola also confirmed that the handset will get the latest Android 4.4 update, but failed to mention a time period when users can expect the update. Anyway, if you’re looking for a decent Android handset, Moto X is a great option and even better at the abovementioned price.
