Deal: Motorola Moto X Pure Edition can now be bought starting at $299

The Motorola Moto X Pure Edition is not the newest, nor the hottest smartphone around, but you may be interested in hearing that, as of today, it can be purchased in the US starting at just $299 (unlocked, of course).

$299 will get you a Moto X Pure 16 GB - that's $100 less than its normal price ($399). The Moto X Pure 32 GB is also on sale, though its price has been cut just by $50, thus it now costs $399 (down from $449). As for the 64 GB variant of the device, this costs $499, just like before - no price cut here. According to Motorola, the offers are valid until March 17, or while supplies last, so you should hurry if you're in need of a brand new Moto X Pure. Mind you, if you want to customize any of the Moto X variants with leather or wood via Moto Maker, you still have to pay an extra $25.

The Moto X Pure Edition can be bought at discounted prices not just from Motorola, but also from Amazon and Best Buy - see the source links at the end of this article. Released in September with Android Lollipop on board, the Moto X Pure now runs Android Marshmallow. To find out more about the smartphone, go ahead and check out our Moto X Pure review.

Exactly, and be advised if you use it on Cricket, battery life is horrible. I exchanged mine for the Moto G, very satisfied. Battery not an issue with AT&T or T-Mobile.

If you're not a power user 16gb MIGHT be enough...but even too many pictures will fill this thing up. I think 32 should be the bare minimum.

The phone takes microsd card, so that argument is void.

No it absolutely isn't. SD cards have a shelf life and are of varying quality. It's fine for a backup or to swap out music and movies. It's lunacy to be a primary storage vehicle.

The 32 Gig version is my first choice, and will probably my new phone before too much longer.

Unskinned Android will run nice on that baby for a while. Think the Pure will hold up very nicely for a couple years.

It's an awesome phone. I love my Nexus 6P, especially now that it has Android N, but there're still things that the Moto X just does better. Make the 2016 model available on Google Fi and I'll switch to it in a heartbeat.

I prefer my 6 to the 6P and the Moto X Pure edition feels like a natural evolution of the 6 albeit with a smaller screen and not available on Google FI.

Great deal, about time they do a "real" sale instead of a sale on a bunch of fugly colors no one wanted. It's not available on Google Fi but that's ok. It's a ripoff anyway.

Because the X Pure supports CDMA and GSM, it would probably work on Project Fi.

Why didn't they drop all storage options by $100? :(

Motorola can be pretty incompetent at times.

I don't know why they even have a 16gb model these days! Do you know if Motorola supports storing apps on the SD card with marshmallow update?

Yes it does, it has to be high speed SD card though

But does the Moto X Pure (or any mobile device for that matter) support UHS-II to achieve those high speeds? I am actually curious as to whether there are devices that support those pins. That will truly make Adaptive Storage (and a good memory card) that much more beneficial.

Very much so...I'm afraid. Don't return anything, because you really will be for a ride.

This should had been the original sticker price, in a field saturated with Android devices.
