Didn’t we promise that the Moto X would arrive on Verizon on September 26th? OK, that’s not exactly true. Actually it’s not us who made the promise, we only delivered the message, but that’s not the point. Today is Friday, September 26th and guess what? Motorola’s Moto X 2nd Gen is now for sale at Verizon Wireless stores with a nice little surprise for users who like to stand out in the crowd.
2nd Generation Moto X for Verizon
Previous reports suggested that Verizon would be selling the new Moto X for $99.99 with a new two-year contract and that’s true as well. Of course, we are talking about the 16GB model here. The carrier offers the Moto X in black and white and the latter is bundled with a free Bamboo back. What’s interesting is that the discount doesn’t apply if you opt for off-contract or Edge option.
In such case, the black Moto X will set you back $499.99, while the white model costs $549.99. Users who prefer to pay the phone off in monthly installments will have to pay $24.99 and $27.49 for the black and white variants, respectively. Fully customizable Moto X 16GB is available through Moto Maker as is the 32GB model – for $149.99 with a two-year contract or $549.99 outright.
The new Moto X may not be the cheapest phone on the market, but it certainly is worth its price. Compared to last-year’s model, the Moto X 2nd Gen is not only bigger but also more powerful. The phone has a 5.2-inch display with 1080p resolution and comes with a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 2GB of RAM. The new Moto X is also equipped with a 13-megapixel Quick Capture rear camera with dual LED flash and 4K video recording as well as 2-megapixel front-facing camera with Full HD video capture, and it comes with a number with cool features such as voice control.
One of the features that makes the Moto X revolutionary in a certain way is that you can personalize the phone to your liking. That option is available only through the Moto Maker website, though. If, however, you have no patience to go through all the steps or are perfectly happy to own a plain black or white phone, Verizon’s store is where you can get one.
