New Moto X Pure Edition: unlocked, off-contract and with no slowdowns
The New Moto X is one hell of a device, but we know the system can be a bit hectic (especially in the USA). Contracts, update delays and locked SIM card slots are problems we must deal with. If you want to avoid such difficulties, Motorola just may have the solution for you.
This Moto X Pure Edition would come without limitations or cumbersome delays.
We all know carrier-branded smartphones get updates much later, as the carrier has to optimize these for their network and services. It doesn’t help that they are often SIM-locked, forcing you to stay with the same network or purchase a whole new smartphone.
Purchasing off-contract, unlocked devices is starting to become more attractive. Especially as powerful phones become more affordable. The Moto X Pure Edition (if it is to be called that) seems like a great option. We have tested the device and fell in love with it.
You can check out our hands-on to see what the device is all about. It is important to note the UI is very similar to stock Android, which makes it even more enticing for “purists”. We expect a September release, so get your cash ready!
