Unlocked Moto X (2014) to be called "Pure Edition"
posted by Michael H. / Sep 12, 2014, 1:19 PM
The Verge is now reporting that the unlocked and unbranded version of the new Moto X will be called the "Pure Edition". It's easy to make the assumption from there that Motorola is making a sly comment on the carrier branded models. If the unlocked and unbranded version is "Pure", it implies that the carrier models have been tarnished with bloat apps and delays for software updates.
We do know that the unlocked Moto X (2014) will cost $499, but we don't yet know when to expect the phone to be available for purchase. Motorola hasn't given a specific release date for the phone, just that it would be coming out "later in September"; so, it is likely to be sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Ugh. After seeing the Nexus 5 32 GB at $399, the Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G at $299, then actually buying the OnePlus One 64 GB at $349 it's so hard to wrap my brain around paying $549 for the 32 GB model.... I want it very much, however I just can't bring myself to buy it...

That's how I feel, especially seeing the review of the battery, I'm like meh. I kinda feel like waiting for the Nexus X at this point, plus I heard the Nexus 5 may get a 64GB version (Even though I'm not gonna buy it).

Hey PA, do you think that Motorola will discontinue the OG Moto X anytime soon? I'm thinking of getting it but I would like to wait for it to be discounted before buying it. However, I'm worried that they're going to discontinue it without any prior promotion or warning. What do you guys think?

My wife just bought a Galaxy S4 a couple weeks back. She said that she liked my phone and was going to get the same model, but was allegedly told by the people at AT&T that they had phased the Moto X out. Wait at your own risk sir.

Only if Motorola could price it competitively like Nexus 5 and OnePlus One.

This is the phone for the millions of people who couldn't care less about phonearena and other tech websites. For the normal person, the Moto X is the best phone available. However, if you are in the Apple ecosystem, then the Iphone is the clear winner.
