moto x press shot

As high-end Android phones go, the Moto X is not the most powerful, but it sure is one of the best optimized, and it still has some features that you don’t see on other devices. Add a very attractive price and the ability to customize its appearance and you get the perfect gift for someone special in your life.

Today only, Motorola is selling the Moto X starting from $299 unlocked. That’s the price for the 16GB model, while the 32GB model and the Developer Edition will set you back $324. All models can be customized through Moto Maker, giving you the option to order a phone in, say, your Mom’s favorite color combination. The wood and bamboo options cost an additional $25, however.

This early Mother’s Day sale goes on until tonight at 11:59pm ET. In the past, nice sales such as this one caused Motorola’s servers to jam, so the company opted for a coupon system in the previous Moto X promo. But this time, Moto is back to the regular, first come-first serve model.

As a refresher, the Moto X packs a 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED display, a custom SoC based on the dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, and 2GB of RAM. Some of the phone’s unique features include QuickCapture, which lets you open up the camera with a flick of your wrist, the Active Display notification system, and a series of useful voice commands.

    Honestly I think Motorola is doing this to sell as much moto X as possible before they unleash there new flagship moto phone in May 17. No one will want to really buy a 2 year old S4 chip if a new model comes out with at least last year 800 chip. This is a way for them to sell most of their phones. Overall this is a good deal and a great phone it just wont be great once a new improved version comes out. I’m not being biased or anything.

      The invitation to the May 13th event hinted at a phone built to last, priced for all, they’re probably introducing a model below the Moto G, not the successor to the Moto X just yet.

    Got one for my mom. Too bad we don’t have Moto Maker in Brazil, I wish I could customize it.
