Crazy deal: Moto X Pure goes on sale for just $240

The Moto X Pure was one of the best affordable phones of 2015: with its large, 5.7-inch Quad HD display in a relatively compact for that screen size body, it's a device that feels comfortable in the hand. It also runs on a nearly stock version of the Android platform, which translates into fast and smooth animations and great overall performance.

Don't mistake it for a high-end phone: it does not have the Snapdragon 820 system chip, nor a class-leading camera, but it's decidedly above average in both terms of performance and camera quality.

At its initial price of just $350 for the base, 16GB model it seemed like quite the steal.

Today, a special deal prices it at an even better price: you can get it for just $240 for the 16 gig version, while the 64GB model is discounted to $320. There is a microSD card slot on board as well, so you will have no issues getting more storage if you need it in the future.

The quick specs highlights of the Moto X Pure include its Snapdragon 808 system chip with 3GB of RAM, a 3,000mAh battery with not-so-stellar battery life, but support for quick charging, and then a 21-megapixel main camera.

Seems like a killer deal. I would say to avoid the 16 GB model at all costs but seeing as it has expandable storage and that Android Marshmallow treats it as native storage, there's no need to worry about Android N's seamless updates partition feature hogging up all your storage space.

A good deal on a good phone provided you're ok with not getting updated because why not with it being a "pure" phone and all. At least it's universally unlocked and has the best speakers on the market with expandable storage that isn't as seamless as onboard storage.

Google Photos uploads to your Google Drive at your preference. It has a one click button to delete photos off the device that have been uploaded. Solves a lot of storage problems.

I am aware of that feature and I think it's an awesome feature. But photos and videos are not the only things that take up storage on a device, a good deal of space is taken up by the OS itself and when Android N comes out that space will double, when the OS is duplicated under a secondary partition.

Great phone. I would take this deal over the BlackBerry Priv.
