As we touched on before, this isn't the first time the Moto X has seen price slashes. Verizon, for its part, has already offered this very same deal for the US-assembled phone once before. That's quite a price cut, considering the initial asking price of $199 on a 2-year agreement. Whether carriers simply deem the Moto X a phone worth subsidizing heavily or we're simply seeing the effects of the phone's poor sales performance is something that's been bugging us for a while. Last we heard, the Moto X wasn't the success that Motorola needed – it only sold about 500,000 units in Q3. Whether the promotions-ridden last month served to shake things up remains to be seen. In any case, we actually liked the Moto X, and you should probably consider checking out our in-depth review of the customizable phone, especially if you're considering getting aboard the Motorola bandwagon.
