Update: Motorola is discounting the regular model of the Moto X4 by $120 as well, bringing the price down to $229.
Motorola is ready for this year's Black Friday, having just dropped the price of the Moto X4 Prime Exclusive to $179.99, beating its previous all-time low by $50. Regularly priced at $250, this particular variant of the device is already more affordable than the regular Moto X4 by no less than a $100, with those savings being available to anyone who doesn't mind an occasional lock screen ad. With this latest discount, the Moto X4 is by far the cheapest device powered by the mid-range Snapdragon 630 that you can currently get in the U.S. While it's not on par with the very latest $1,000 flagships in terms on raw power, it certainly comes close to them during regular use and may even surpass them as far as battery life is concerned.
The critically acclaimed device has been out for just over a year now and offers everything a regular smartphone user might want – a sharp screen, water resistance, dual-camera setup that produces a great bokeh effect, and compatibility with every mobile network in the United States. Better yet, the Moto X4 offers support for Amazon's Alexa assistant and comes with a microSD card slot which can accept up to 2TB of extra flash storage. Naturally, with this being a Prime Exclusive, you'll have to be a Prime subscriber in order to purchase the handset at such an attractive price point but the good news is that you can sign up for a membership for free, order the device, and then cancel your trial if you don't deem it worth the money (though it certainly is).
