Deal Alert: get the Moto X for $139.99 on a new contract with Verizon

Moto X

The MotoMaker for the Moto X is a really cool tool, but it’s currently only available on AT&T, yet we’re still paying that same $199.99 on-contract price for the Moto X on Verizon. However, on Verizon, you can get your Moto X for $139.99 using coupon code VERIZON30. It’s a pretty decent discount, and at that price, it might even be worth getting the Moto X without the MotoMaker.

The Moto X is Motorola’s flagship smartphone for this year, and it’s showed us how you don’t need top-of-the-line hardware to be a really impressive device. It may not be the best in terms of picture quality, but its superior voice recognition software makes up for that.

Here’s a quick reminder of what we’re looking at, specs wise:

  • 4.7-inch AMOLED display with 720p resolution
  • 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 Pro processor and Adreno 320 GPU part of Motorola’s X8 Mobile Computing System which also includes one core for contextual computing processing and one core for natural language processing
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB/32GB of internal memory and 2 years of 50GB of free Google Drive storage
  • no microSD support
  • 10.5-megapixel Clear Pixel camera
  • 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi with dual band antenna system
  • Bluetooth 4.0 LE
  • LTE
  • NFC
  • GPS, AGPS, aGPS, sGPS, eCompass, GLONASS
  • Android 4.2.2  Jelly Bean
  • 2200mAh non-removable battery

Anyone interested in the Moto X from Verizon?

    So they got pressured into lowering their price all around? Won’t stop me from calling this the fail of the year. I hope they sell just enough to lose money on this thing.

    You’re only a little over four days late reporting this.

    And this 30% discount off phone contract price can be used for most phones, by the way.

    And Verizon Moto X is not available in 32GB. This $60 off had me close to impulse buying one last Thursday to try it out for myself using one of my dumb phone line upgrades (keeping unlimited data), but the 16GB limitation, bad camera, probably soon to come Developer Edition and coming drop to $100 contract which I figured would happen later this year, along with hopefully coming Moto Maker and 32GB+, make it not a worthwhile downgrade from my DNA, even taking into account the money I’d pocket off the deal.

    For people on Verizon with an upgrade who need a phone now, and don’t want to wait probably two more months for a better option/deal, this isn’t a bad deal right now.
