AT&T has confirmed that the Moto X will cost $575 without a contract, and that's for the 16 GB version. The 32 GB one will run you $629, or in line with all current flagship phones, just like the $200 contract price for the basic Moto X jibes with what we are used to pay for the latest and greatest...

I don't know why everyone follows these leaks and rumors about this phone or any other phone for that matter. There will be one little thing that you see from a speculation and if its not there then you will hate on the phone for it not being up to what the rumor said. This goes for the price, just because you hear it before the official announcement by almost every website saying that it will happen who says any of them are actually right? You don't know until it is announced.

Getting back to the motor x price point, I think the price is really expensive too but honestly why wouldn't you just buy the on contract price point. Even if you think that is too much because the specs are not that great just wait a couple months and then the price will drop at least 50 dollars but probably by end of october it will be 100 dollars which then should have the price match the specs. The reason the motor x is 199 dollars anyway is because of Motomaker and if you aren't on AT&T then wait there is a good chance that Motomaker will be a available on the 3 carriers, Verizon said they would have it soon anyway. So just be patient and if you can't be then buy the phone you think that has the best price to specs in your point of view.

Also if you need to have off contract then just wait for the Google Play edition which will be probably less than the AT&T off contract price anyway (carriers want the most money always).

Last thing, people are also saying that its a Google phone so it should have the latest specs and the latest software then I say that its NOT A GOOGLE phone its a Motorola phone with advice from Google to help people like the phone more. I think the camera would have been horrible if Google wouldn't have pitched in. Do you remember the horrible cameras from the first Razrs. Eek. Think of Motorola at the same place as all the other manufactures, don't even think that they are owned by Google.

Damn that's expensive. Then a $100 a month phone bill? I'm glad I went prepaid with my Nexus 4 from Google Play. I save money and have a great phone.

$575 this mid range spec thing??? LOL, someone at Moto is having a good laugh!

Rather get a GS4 GE, HTC One GE or even a Nexus 4, all of which are better than this!

want sell!! Too many high end Androids out there to waste $200 dollars on when you can get the HTC One for $99.00 or BOGO Galaxy S4 on Sprint for $199.00. I don't know what Motorola or Google were thinking about with the pricing of this mid ranger..The same ole Droid Line looks weak also, it's just a circling of the original Razr, Razr HD and Razr HD Maxx, now called Ultra, and Ultra Maxx with basically the same weak specs. Get the S4 now or HTC One or just be patient and wait on the Note III, don't get stuck with this thing for two years.

if an Iphone 5 was not a toy app launcher . I would have said that "I will go for an Iphone 5 instead of this pricey piece of phone called moto x"

How is the iPhone 5 any better of a deal? Yeah, yeah, it's an iPhone. But on specs? 4" screen, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB storage for $200. Or 32 GB for $300, or 64 GB for $400. I would never call an iPhone a good deal unless your only concern is resale value.
