A few months ago back in 2013, Motorola released the Moto X handset which wasn’t exactly a high-end device, but came with features and functions that helped to set it apart from the rest of the competition, features which Motorola felt justified in charging customers a price that would normally have nabbed them a handset with much better hardware specs. Over the past couple of months we have seen Motorola drop the price of the Moto X, making it more affordable each time, and now it looks like if you were planning on getting the Moto X, it has been revealed the handset will now cost $399 outright. Yup, if you weren’t too keen on the idea of signing a contract, Motorola will now let you buy the handset outright at $399!
Granted that’s still more expensive than the Moto G but then again, its specs are a bit better which we’re sure some users might appreciate. For those looking for a little more storage, the 32GB model of the Moto X will cost you an additional $50, and if you wanted to customize your Moto X with a bamboo backplate, that’s an additional $100 to top it off, meaning that it could add up to be quite a considerable amount. However for those who aren’t too fussy, the $399 price tag makes it a pretty good deal and it is almost comparable to the Nexus 5.
