Looking to pick up a brand new smartphone, for under $400 with Android Lollipop on board? Motorola might have exactly what you’re looking for. The Moto X (2014) is currently on sale from Motorola for $200 off of the 32GB version and $225 off the 64GB version. This brings the price to $350 and $375 respectively. These are for the unlocked, Pure Edition models as well. So you are free to take them to AT&T, T-Mobile, Simple Mobile, Straight Talk, and any other GSM carrier. Unfortunately it will not work on Verizon or Sprint. Seeing as it’s a GSM smartphone and not CDMA. This sale runs now through 11:59am EST on May 6th, so you’ll need to act fast before Motorola is sold out.
The Moto 360 is also on sale for $70 off, if you’re interested in picking up one of those as well. The Moto X (2014) was announced last fall. And as usual with Motorola phones, it came with a lot of skepticism. But Motorola produced a great product. It has a 5.2-inch 1080p AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, along with 32GB or 64GB of storage, and a front-facing speaker. There is only one front-facing speaker, even though there looks like there is two. That was by design, actually.
Not to Mention Moto Maker. Which is Motorola’s website that you can use to customize your device. Choose different colored backs, different materials as well. Including leather, bamboo, ebony and other wood material. That’s something most other smartphone manufacturers aren’t doing yet.
We reviewed the Moto X (2014) last fall and were pretty impressed with the device. We also reviewed the Moto 360 and are still pretty impressed with it. Both should be seeing successors in the next few months. Likely the reason why we are seeing sales for the Moto X (2014) and Moto 360 already. Trying to get rid of old stock. The Moto X (2014) is still a great device to pick up, especially if you don’t want to spend a fortune. It also has stock Android 5.0 Lollipop on board, with Android 5.1 Lollipop coming out really soon. If not before you actually get your device.
