Deal: Motorola officially drops the price of the Moto X Pure Edition for a limited time

With rumors of the Motorola (Lenovo) Moto G4 on the horizon, last year's Moto X Pure Edition is getting a welcome, albeit temporary discount. From now through May 2nd, you can snag the device from upward of $349.99, which is a $50 saving off the usual base retail price.

Though everybody has their own checklist when it comes to deciding on a new smartphone, the Moto X Pure Edition ticks three key boxes; it's a very nice handset with strong specs, it's good value for money, and owners get a close-to-stock Android experience sans the usual bolt-ons and bloatware. 

If you look hard enough, you can probably find the Moto X Pure online for the same price that Motorola is currently charging. But by taking advantage of this official deal, you can use the Moto Maker tool to completely customize your handset with different covers, frames, engraving and even a tailored welcome message. 

Packed with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC and 3 GB of RAM, the device is IP 52 certified for splash and dust-proofing. The 5.7-inch display is crisp at 1440 x 2560 pixels, though its size does mean that the Moto X Pure is only for phablet fans. There's a 3000 mAh battery to keep the lights on, and the strong, 21-megapixel rear-facing camera is allied to a 5-megapixel sensor at the front. 

Even though the device does include a microSD expansion slot, you may find it worthwhile to bump native storage up to 32 GB. This will incur an extra $50 charge, but it means that your $399.99 will get you double the usual allotted real estate. 

An all-round great handset, we were incredibly impressed with the Moto X Pure in our review. Our readers tend to agree, having so far scored it a whopping 9.4/10 on average. If you're not too fussed about purchasing a device from last year, you could do a great deal worse for $350.

Can anyone comment on battery life AFTER the Marshmallow update?

I have a Nexus 6 on Marshmallow and this one should have about the same battery life. Mine runs around 4hrs screen on time. Stand by is pretty good. This phone is like a newer and improved Moto Nexus 6 and I love mine. No regrets.

And yet you use the picture of a $700 phone as your profile pic.

No, he DID not. S6 is 450$ atm, for example and its last year high end phone, while the Moto X Pure is mid end phone, from the same period with, Much weaker cpu Much weaker gpu Much weaker build quality Much weaker display Much weaker camera It need to be 250$ max to be consider a good buy.

Wrong, it helps to know what you're talking about. The CPU is just fine, I have no problems with the 808. It works well enough with stock android. Watch any Youtube speedtest video of the Moto X and you'll see it has no trouble keeping up. Build quality is just fine, I'll take it over a slippery bar of soap like the S6 is. Display? Lol don't even get me started on the burn in possibility and the overly saturated AMOLED from Samsung. Seriously it helps to know what you are talking about.

I'm more curious about Lenovo being bad about warranties. That's a bad precedent.

Still to much, i would pay 200 at most

Why? Please give us any superior options in the $350 range. How about a $250 superior phone since you think this one is worth $200. I want to see how quickly you lose your credibility.

Don't be dense. This is a great deal for a phone with cutting edge specs and universally unlocked.

Those specs are a let down.

9. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Let down? It's running the same processor as the V10, it has 3GB of RAM and it's stock. You're being ignorant.

Great deal on a device that was already easy to justify the price tag of compared to the competition.

That's not a deal. It was going for $299 at one point. I would rather have the Moto x force (turbo 2) but I'm not paying $650 for a year old phone. Lenovo killed Motorola. The leaks for the new phone area ugly as hell and no front firing speakers is a deal breaker.
