While the Motorola name may be dying off, the Moto phones will live on, and right now you can score a 2014 Moto X direct from the source starting at just $249.99.

This means that you get to take advantage of the always entertaining Moto Maker to customize the phone to your heart’s content. Just remember that you are likely going to want to stick with the Moto X Pure Edition, because it remains the only variant of the 2014 Moto X in the US┬áthat is guaranteed to get an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

While there are plenty of mid-range contenders to consider in this price range now, I still like a lot of the little features that Motorola packed into this Moto X. If you start to cross over into the mid-$300s while customizing it, then I would recommend sitting back and thinking this through a bit more, but if you can get by on the base 16GB and stay in that $249-$279 range, I absolutely think the 2014 Moto X is still worthy of consideration.

You have until January 26th (Tuesday) at 10:59 a.m. Central to take advantage of this offer, so if you’re interested, hit the source link and get to Moto making.
