Motorola Moto X off-contract price drops to $399

motorola-moto-x-2

We may only be a few hours into 2014, but it looks like we’re already off to a good start. Motorola has officially dropped the off-contact price of the Moto X to a very respectable $399 for the 16GB base model and $449 for 32GB of storage. Shoppers can tack on an additional $100 to either model for the natural bamboo finish. The new pricing only applies to phones purchased through Moto Maker for now, but we suspect that Motorola’s carrier partners will soon drop their Moto X prices as well.

Since the Motorola Moto X was the winner of Android and Me’s Editor’s Choice Award, it’s hard for us not to recommend that you start 2014 off by buying a custom-built Moto X for yourself or a loved one.

    This is a great deal for this phone, and what it should have been at from the start. Seems moto is looking more to help people not get stuck with a contract, by pricing these devices much cheaper.

      “Lackluster” specs do not matter with this handset. My girlfriend recently got one and it is just as smooth and snappy as my Google Edition GS4. You’d be a fool to pass up on an Moto X because of specs. I’d trade my GS4 and HTC One for a Moto X if I could. The ergonomics are amazing too. I can reach the opposite top corner of the screen with my thumb very easily.

      I call it the iPhone of Android. It does and gets everything right. Best handset of 2013 IMO

    How could anyone even consider buying a Moto X for $400 when the Moto G is pretty comparable in specs (on paper) and costs less than half the price?? Typical OEM bullshit, trying to convince the consumer price reflects quality.
