Last month the brand new Moto X arrived at three US major carriers: AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile and now it’s time for other service providers to join in the fun. Today is US Cellular’s turn to add the 2nd generation Moto X to the portfolio, and so it did – the Motorola’s Moto X officially announced to the world a month ago is now available from carrier’s online store for cheap if you sing up a two year contract.
Motorola’s Moto X (2nd Gen) for US Cellular
US Cellular is selling the Moto X for $99.99 with a two-year contract or $480 outright. There is also an option to pay off the phone in monthly installments in which case the Moto X will cost you $20 per month for 2 years. That much (or little) money will get you the all-black model.
If you crave for a more premium variant, you will have to wait until late October when the carrier stats selling the phone with black leather or bamboo back case. Keep in mind, though, that these two models will be more expensive and will set you back $150 with a two-year contract or $21.67 per month on payments.
One of the biggest advantages of owning a Moto X is that you get near stock Android experience, meaning that the phone comes with virtually no third-party software modifications. Operating system aside, the new Moto X boasts powerful hardware as well, such as a large 5.2-inch 1080p AMOLED display with pixel density of 423 ppi, quad-core 2.5Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Other features include 13-megapixel rear camera with 4K video, an ƒ/2.25 lens and a dual-LED ring flash, 2-megapixel user-facing camera, and a 2,300 mAh battery.
It seems that only the 16GB model will be available from US Cellular, so if you need more storage, you will have to look somewhere else. At only $480 off-contract, the phone is cheaper than if you purchased it directly from Motorola web store, so if you are on a tight budget, you might want to think twice if you really need that extra storage. At this point we are not sure whether the US Cellular model will be available with Moto Maker customization; however, we will let you know as soon as we find out more on the subject.
