Deal: Latest Motorola Moto X (2014) down to $299 on AT&T and Verizon
If you're looking for a solid all-round smartphone, then the second-gen Motorola Moto X (2014) is a pretty good choice. Already well-priced, you can snag yourself a tidy saving on this handset right now, with Best Buy offering the device for $299 to those happy to run with AT&T or Verizon. The deal applies to the 16GB model in black only, and with AT&T customers saving a tidy $100, those on Verizon pocket a whopping $250 on the usual price. 

The second-generation Moto X is among a fleet of very good smartphones that currently sit just below the upper echelons of the market. It's not a Samsung Galaxy S6 or an LG G4 by any stretch of the imagination, but at a fraction of the cost, packs enough of a punch to cater to most needs. 

There have been rumors that a third-gen variant of the Moto X is incoming, with purported specs and a rather pixelated sighting of the device offering a flavor of things to come. Notably, we could be looking at two different versions of the Moto X, one with a 5.2-inch QHD display and a larger variant with a 5.7-inch QHD panel -- the latter of which will apparently be exclusive to Verizon. 

If you've been contemplating the current Moto X, though, now's a good time to go ahead and acquire the 2014 variant. Best Buy is also offering $25 in rewards certificates with every new smartphone purchase to sweeten the bargain, so move quickly if you want to save some cash on what remains a great smartphone. 

This isn't the first deal that Best Buy has rolled out this week, either. The retailer also snipped $100 off the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 a few days back, and for those interested, that particular offer is still valid. For more information, click here

I cannot wait for the 2015 model. If you can forgive the camera, the Moto X is in my opinion the best phone on the market.

Yeah...don't forget their battery life, horrible. I'm sorry, but on contract this thing should be free.

What you talkin bout Willis? My Moto X 2013 lasts me the whole day on a single charge. And if the leaked specs are accurate, this year's model will have a significantly larger sized battery.

Considering the Moto X only has a 2300 mha battery. It actually gets good battery life. Not to mention Motorola used a new antenna system in the Moto X that saves up to 50% more power compared to other smartphones. This feature will be in future smartphones.

The camera isn't even bad. I've taken some great photos with my Moto X, and the current one has an even better camera.

You should do stand up.

The specs suck? It has the same processor as the Galaxy S5 and LG G3 and outperforms them both in benchmark tests.

It has almost identical processor / GPU / RAM to the S5, with a similar resolution display. Sure it doesn't have a microSD slot or as good a camera, but then again, you can't get the S5 for $299 -- at least, not new...

This is the price of the 16 GB OnePlus One everyday. Or one could wait until one of their Flashsale days this week and get a 64 GB for $299. Its not a bad deal for the Moto X but its not exceptional these days with phones like the OnePlus One, Idol 3 and ZenFone 2 at the price points they are.

The oneplus is a good phone. However the Moto X has things like 4 microphones, and 4 front facing IR sensors to track your hand movements. There is a dynamic antenna system in the Moto X which claims to save 50% power. Not to mention the always listening system to activate the Moto X. All the phones that you mentioned are larger phones with IPS displays. The Moto X has a 5.1" 1920x1080 AMOLED display. Personally I would take AMOLED displays over IPS displays anyway of the week.

It's a midrange phone with modest specs

Compared to the S6, which is 7 months newer, sure. Compared to the S5 which was 5 months older, absolutely not.

The S6 smokes the Moto X... but how much does the S6 cost off contract? Nearly $700 for the base model. So spending much less than half of what's being charged for the S6 for one of the best phones from last year, which is still an awesome phone seems like an awesome deal to me.

If you don't know by now Mxyzptlk is an iPhone guy. So his opinion doesn't matter, because he doesn't even own one. For $299 to buy the phone outright and off contract is an excellent deal. The Moto X has a 1920x1080 AMOLED display, his iPhone 6 has a crappy 1336x750 IPS display. The Moto X has a better speaker and 4 microphones compared to the crap Apple went with. It even has some features that are still not seen on any smartphone. Like the 4 IR on the front face of the phone, the always listening system to activate your phone. Motorola used a new dynamic antenna system in the Moto X that can save power by upwards of 50% compared to others. The quad core SD 801 CPU running at 2.5 ghz with 2 GB of ram is anything but modest.

Man, now you're making me feel bad for not being around more. I know exactly who May is. I've been arguing with him longer than just about everyone on this site.

You should feel bad for being wrong.

Sniggly and I have actual hands on experience with the phone you keep bashing, We're far more qualified to judge its performance than you are.

32. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You're not even qualified to clean the dirt off my boots. Don't give me that experience entitlement bs. You like to dish out the comments but you can't take them. Btw my first generation Moto X says hi.

25. Mxyzptlk unregistered

First of all kid I don't just use the iPhone. Try pulling your head out of your bottom first. You forget there's two iPhone and the bigger easily smokes the Moto X. Both do actually. The X doesn't even have dual speakers and the only advantage it has is being a front firing speaker. Good software so what? I can get the same off a Moto G of I really cared. Your a waste of my time.

When it comes to call quality NOONE matches Motorola! I have a note 4 and had an M8 and the M8 was light years faster than the Note 4, and the Motos are just as fast.

He's a waste of your time? What do you call reposting the same Motorola hate comments in ever article on this site for as far as I can recall? Don't you think that would be a waste of your time?

33. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You mean like you and the Apple Maps comment?

No, not like that, I'm actually capable of having actual conversations with Apple fans, you are incapable of the same with Motorola. All you do is troll in Motorola articles.

23. Mxyzptlk unregistered

The S6 is brand new. Of course it's going to be more expensive. Actually you can find it reasonably priced quite easily.

Not really a good deal.
