As if the second generation Moto X wasn’t already attractive enough, Motorola is breaking a new range topping variant of the flagship smartphone. The Moto X was previously only available in 16GB and 32GB versions, but today Motorola has bumped the maximum capacity to 64GB for the Moto X Pure Edition. The Moto X doesn’t have an integrated microSD slot, so the bump from a maximum of 32GB to 64GB is a welcome addition. Since this is a Pure Edition device, that means that you won’t find any carrier bloatware or unwanted apps on this device — just a near stock version of Android 4.4.4 KitKat (which... Read more...
When Motorola introduced the Moto X last year, the company was owned by Google. In our hands-on review of the first-generation Moto X, we pointed out that the collaboration between Motorola and Android engineers led to an incredibly sleek device and a good user experience. Although the first-generation Moto X didn’t have quite as impressive hardware specifications as its high-end competitors at the time, the phone still performed very well. What’s more, the Moto X also included a number of unique extras, like touchless controls that worked exceptionally well. Fast forward to today,... Read more...

So you've been tempted by Apple's new big, beautiful 5.5-inch computer-in-your-pocket known as the iPhone 6 Plus.  I mean if you're going to get a new smartphone, surely anything labeled "Plus" by Apple must be all that and a bag of Fritos, right? And #bendgate? You couldn't care less about what a few clumsy types are squawking about. You take care of your devices and don't plan on sitting on your phone anytime soon. Then again, the iPhone 6 Plus is expensive and it sure is big. There are so many smartphones to choose from these days and when it comes to Android, Google and their multitude... Read more...
Perhaps if you hold out long enough, Motorola might start giving away its Moto X smartphone, no strings attached. In the meantime, the latest promotion intended to drum up interest in the first smartphone built in the U.S. is the bundling of Google's Chromecast dongle at no additional charge when you purchase a Moto X off-contract. It seems Motorola is having trouble selling the Moto X, hence all the recent promotions. The handset maker has already dropped the price of the Moto X on two separate occasions, including at the beginning of this month; it now sells for $400 for the 16GB model and $450... Read more...
Maybe 2014 will be the year of affordable, off-contract smartphones. If not, it won't be for a lack of trying from Motorola, which just announced that its unlocked Moto X (see our review) is now $399.99 going forward. Anyone and everyone can snag an off-contract Moto X for the newly reduced price, regardless of wireless carrier and whether or not you're eligible for an upgrade. "Today several wireless carriers offer good month-to-month or prepaid service plans that cost much less than the contract plans that come with subsidized devices. Combine one of those plans with our new $399 everyday pricing... Read more...
Hang tight, Moto X owners. If you're not already knee deep in Android 4.4 KitKat, you soon will be. Motorola is letting the world know that the most delicious version of Google's open source operating system is headed to the Moto X, the first smartphone manufactured in the United States, via an over-the-air (OTA) update. It's easy enough to check if the upgrade has arrived. On your Moto X, just navigate to Settings, About Phone, and System Updates. Verizon Wireless actually became the first wireless carrier to feed Moto X owners a serving of KitKat, which it began rolling out last week. T-Mobile... Read more...
Now that Google has officially launched its Nexus 5 smartphone, it marks the arrival of Android 4.4, otherwise known as KitKat. The Nexus 5 may be first out the door with the delicious new build, but it's only a matter of time before other handsets receive the update as well. Given that Google purchased Motorola's mobile business, you would think the company's handsets would also be getting the KitKat treatment, and for the most part, you'd be right. One of the most popular Motorola devices, the Moto X manufactured right here in the good ol' U. S. of A. (in the state of Texas), will definitely... Read more...
The Moto X is the first smartphone to be produced in a manufacturing facility located in the U.S., which means there are certain implications to how well it does or does not sell. It's still early, but according to Motorola, it's making a profit on the modest number of Moto X handset it produces and sells from its Texas plant. In an interview with Reuters, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside said the Texas facility, which is operated by contract manufacturer Flextronics, is capable of producing tens of millions of phones a year. Currently Motorola is cranking out 100,000 Moto X phones per week, well short... Read more...
Sprint may not be the lead dog in the carrier pack any longer, but it still holds an ace in its sleeve: unlimited data for life, for those who want it. While every other major rival postpaid carrier has switched over to tiered data plans, Sprint's offering the Moto X with unlimited talk, text and data for $80/month. The device itself will be priced at $199.99 on a 2-year contract, and if you haven't heard, we're pretty big fans of the phone. For a limited time only, new customers who switch their phone number to Sprint from another carrier will receive an additional $100 instant credit, reducing... Read more...
Good news, Verizon Wireless subscribers, the wait is over if you've been itching to get your hands on Motorola's Moto X smartphone.

This is a welcome site for VZW subscribers, considering their smartphone carrier isn't always the first to every smartphone party. Verizon was especially late in getting its hands on the HTC One and... Read more...
