Motorola really, really wants you to buy a cheap Moto X

Moto X Moto Maker

How many times has Motorola put the Moto X on sale now? No, seriously, we’ve lost count. Just last week Motorola was selling the device for as little as $299 off-contract, and now it’s happening again. The company must really need to get rid of these things.

From now until July 31 (that’s a full week), the Moto X will be on sale starting at $299 for the 16GB version, up to $375 for the 64GB model. While we absolutely loved the Motorola Moto X in the past, there comes a time when every phone needs to give up its moment in the sun. With the superior Nexus 5 popping up for around $330 all over the internet lately, and phones like the OnePlus making waves, the Moto X simply isn’t as good of a deal as it used to be.

Software-wise the Moto X may still be one of the most compelling Android phones available, but with Motorola obviously trying to get rid of as many Moto X units as possible, you have to imagine the oft-rumored Moto X+1 will be coming out any day now. We don’t usually advocate waiting for the next big phone to drop instead of buying and enjoying what’s available now, but this time we think it really will be worth the wait.
