We’re probably only a couple of months away from the launch of the fourth-generation Motorola Moto X, following in the footsteps of last year’s Moto X Style, aka X Pure Edition. Ergo, the third-gen can be unsurprisingly purchased at lower prices than ever before, i.e. $300 unlocked with 32GB internal storage.
You may reckon that means game over for the 5.7-incher’s decrepit 5.2-inch predecessor, which Best Buy “cleared” a while back at a little over $240. But although most third-party retailers, including Amazon, seem to be all out of stock, Motorola has a few more units lying around in its warehouses, and it’s now selling them for a cool $200 a pop.
That’s a whopping 150 bucks off list, and ironically, it’s a measly $20 north of the third-gen Moto G’s enduring price. Granted, we’re comparing a 2014 and 2015 phone there, but the former is able to accommodate four times as much data as the latter internally (32 vs. 8GB), and it also arguably packs the better Snapdragon 801 processor, not to mention sporting the larger and sharper 5.2-inch Full HD AMOLED display.
Bottom line, the Moto X (2nd gen) is an absolute steal at only two Benjamins, supporting the lot of US GSM carriers, and allowing for virtually unlimited customization on the Moto Maker website. Oh, and let’s not forget it runs near-stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow already for a completely silky smooth user experience.
