Should you buy a discounted Moto X?

84
Moto X

On both sides of the Atlantic, Motorola is pushing the second-generation Moto X with price cuts. But even with a cheaper price tag, is it worth your cash?

It's hard to believe it's been more than nine months since we first went hands-on with the 2014 Moto X. By the fickle standards of the smartphone world, it's starting to get a bit long in the tooth. Motorola's various discounts on the device are one of its signs of age — Moto (and Best Buy, among others) has recently given U.S. buyers the chance to pick one up for around $300. And today in the UK it's possible to grab a Moto X for as little as £229.

That's a significant drop from the launch price of $500, or £419. So if you've been holding off, is it time to pull the trigger on a Moto X? Let's dive in.
