The success of the Nexus 4 is the living proof that the price of smartphone does matter. While some of you don’t care how much are they paying on a new smartphone, others are budget conscientious and love to get their hands on bargains.
Well, the new Moto X for a mere $99 does sound like a bargain, isn’t it? You might be glad to here that Best Buy is currently selling the Moto X of a bit under a hundred bucks. Of course, the price comes with a two-year agreement with AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint. The good news is that it doesn’t matter whether you are already a subscriber of the three aforementioned US carriers or if you are a new customer.
You probably know that the US carriers are currently selling the new Motorola flagship for $199, so Best Buy’s offer will save you a full Benjamin. For the time being, the only better deal than Best Buy’s is Amazon’s offering where you will find the Sprint Moto X at $79.99 after you agree to sign a two-year contract with US carrier.
Even though the Moto X is not on par with the likes of Galaxy S4, HTC One, Xperia Z1, LG G2, or Galaxy Note 3 when it comes to technical specifications, but the impressive software features included by the Chicago-based phone maker may be its main selling point.
Besides running almost-stock Android 4.2.2, the Moto X brings a bunch of pretty cool features like always-on voice control, Active Notifications, Motorola Assist, and a gesture-based camera interface.
Moto X brings a 4.7-inch HD AMOLED display and a X8 mobile computing system, which is basically a Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset customized by Motorola. The specs list also includes 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of storage, LTE, NFC, all standards of WiFi, a 10 MP ClearPixel camera with 1.4 µm pixel size, and a 2,200 mAh battery that is supposed to give you a full day of autonomy.
