Verizon Moto X Gets A Price Cut: $99 On Contract, $499 Retail

November 6, 2013 - Written By Justin Diaz

It’s hard not to take notice of something as incredibly awesome as the Moto X. With cool features like the active display and the always listening mic that picks up on hot words to relay functions to the devices voice commands(even while the screen is off), the Moto X definitely is a head turner. Perhaps that’s why it was equally hard not to notice that Verizon hadn’t moved an inch on it’s prices for the Moto X.

The most puzzling part of the entire thing is Verizon made no changes despite the price drops for the Moto X at AT&T a couple weeks back and even Verizon’s own entire Droid line of phones had already been brought down in price. So why not the Moto X? Perhaps Verizon just wanted to stagger their price cuts on phones, or maybe they just didn’t like the idea of cutting the price of a new flagship the same time as a major competitor. Whatever the case may be, as of now Verizon has officially dropped the price of the Moto X to $99 on contract and $499 at retail for those of you that have been patiently waiting to grab one. If you’ve held off on your upgrade now is your opportunity.

After the bad news to some that Verizon was opting out of selling the Nexus 5, the Moto X just might be the next best thing if you’re looking for some innovative new features. If you also fancy the customization you can’t do any better than Motomaker, which you can utilize to fully customize the outside look of your brand new Moto X, while making some personalized minor tweaks to the phones interface like a welcome message to truly make it your own. Motomaker offers tons of possible combinations for you to make a completely unique device that is like no one else’s, and plenty of people on Verizon are sure to be happy about the recent price cut.

With the price finally down to match that of At&T, will some of you be heading to your local VZW to grab a Moto X?
