Deal: get the Motorola Moto X (2nd gen) for $299 from Amazon unlocked

2nd-generation Motorola Moto X now available for $299 on Amazon
Last week, Motorola unveiled two new Moto X versions, the Moto X Play and the Moto X Style. Both of these smartphones are attractive in their own way, but none of them is available for purchase at the moment. As it turns out, the 2nd generation Moto X, the handset that Motorola's new handsets are destined to replace, has received a pretty big price cut over at Amazon in anticipation of the two new Moto X versions.

The 2nd-gen Motorola Moto X can now be grabbed for $299 unlocked from Amazon. Available in black with a leather back, black with a soft-touch back, or white with a bamboo back, the Moto X that you can purchase through Amazon will work with GSM carriers such as AT&T, T-Mobile, or prepaid carriers such as MetroPCS, Straight Talk and others.

At $299, the Motorola Moto X (2nd generation) is a decent buy, especially if you're looking for an upper mid-range handset that doesn't break the bank. In case you need a refresh, the 2014 Moto X comes with a 5.2-inch AMOLED display running a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset (2.5GHz quad-core Krait 400 CPU, Adreno 330 GPU), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of microSD-expandable internal storage, a 13MP primary camera, a 2MP secondary shooter on the front, as well as a 2300mAh battery. On the software side, the 2014 Motorola Moto X was recently updated to Android 5.1 Lollipop, and the manufacturer ships the smartphone with a near-stock version of Google's OS.

What do you guys think of Amazon's promotion for the second-generation Motorola Moto X? Are you willing to pay $299 for a near-flagship smartphone (even at modern standards) with a bamboo or a leather back?
