Motorola is running a two day flash sale on the Moto X. Shaving $100 from the regular price, the 32 GB model starts at $349 off contract. The sale starts at EST 12:00am June 4, and runs for 48 hours on the Motorola website.
The Moto X is a well received Android smartphone, launching in 2013, it was also the first phone put out by Motorola under the ownership of Google. This flash sale also comes just days after reporting that Motorola will be closing the Texas facility in which the Moto X is manufactured.
The Moto X sports a 4.7-inch 720p display, 1.7GHz snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 10MP main camera sensor. With all this, the 2200mAh battery has been offering upwards of two days on a charge for many users.
The Moto X came to market with a couple nifty features. First, it was the first to offer ‘always listening’ hotword activated voice actions, like what can now be found in the Google Now launcher. The words “Ok, Google Now” were quickly removed from a Moto X owners regular speech, as the words would trigger the Google Now search app on the device.
The second nifty feature is called Active Display, which takes advantage of the AMOLED panel to provide basic notifications without lighting up the entire screen. Many will be familiar with this type of function with the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the S view flip cover that utilizes just a portion of the display to show the time and some quick notifications.
