Back in November, Motorola ran a major off-contract sale for the Moto X, originally as part of a Cyber Monday promotion. Despite a few hiccups that caused them to delay and reschedule the event for two more dates, Motorola learned there really was a strong demand for a solid off-contract handset, as long as the pricing was more in-line with Nexus devices.

With that in mind, Motorola is bringing in the New Year by slashing down the price of the 16GB Moto X to just $399, and $449 for the 32GB model. This includes both customized Moto Maker handsets and even the developer edition (at $449). For those looking for a wood back however, you’ll still need to pay an extra $100.

While $399 isn’t as cheap as the $349 pricing we saw during their Moto X sale, it’s still a considerably lower price than most other similarly-equipped flagship devices out there in the Android world. For those looking for an even-cheaper off contract experience, you can always pick up the Nexus 5 for $349, or the Moto G for as little as $179 — or even perhaps as low as $100 on Verizon.

What do you think, planning on picking up the Moto X now that the off-contract price has dropped down?
