Looking for a solid Android smartphone at an affordable price? Check out the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition, which is currently available for just $250 from Best Buy. 

Best Buy is selling the Moto X Pure at $249.99, down from the usual price of $349.99, good for a 100$ (28%) discount and a very nice deal on a powerful large-screened Android phone. Sure, the Moto X Pure Edition has already celebrated its anniversary, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a better smartphone at this price.

Just in case you need a refresher, the Moto X Pure Edition features specs such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset with a hexa-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of integrated storage space, and a large 5.7-inch display running at a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels. On top of that add a 21MP primary camera, a 5MP selfie shooter on the front, a 3000mAh battery, and a near-stock implementation of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and you've got yourself a well-rounded phablet even for 2016. 

Better still. you can have your pick between the Black version with a polycarbonate back and the white version with a bamboo back. Here's some more info about the phone if this deal has piqued your interest:

No fingerprint scanner, no support from Motorola, etc. Not a bad phone and it's universally unlocked. Good price for a phone with stock Android. Doesn't cost $500 either.

I really am half tempted to get one just to play with. It's still an awesome phone, throw a spare Fi sim card in it. I just wonder if it'll get Nougat anytime soon.

Moto said it would get the update. Though if you enjoy root features I would just unlock and root it out the box, install Xposed framework, and Moto x will be one the most capable and customizable phones you can buy. If you update to Marshmallow you will be forced to use the systemless root. If you do update nougat then it's hard to say if you would even be able to achieve root.
