Pick up a refurbished Moto X (2013) for just $158

Update: Well, looks like that sold out quickly. The only other available deal on the Moto X (2013) is for $229 in either white or black. Not as great of a deal.

Original story: We're well into the life cycle of the new Moto X, but that doesn't mean the old one isn't still worth having if you can get it for a good deal. NoMoreRack has the original Moto X (unlocked GSM, of course) available in a refurbished condition for just $158 right now, and that's a pretty darn good price. Last year's Moto X for less than the price of the new Moto G is nothing to shake a stick at — and we're sure more than a few people will snatch this one up.

Hit the source link for the deal, and don't mind the improper use of the new Moto X for the pictures — this is definitely last year's model.

  • The website doesn't even work... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Already sold out..!
    Waste of AC blog space. Giggitty
  • Waste of comment dood. You're late to the article. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I've never really heard good things about nomorerack.
  • GSM only and 4.2.2? Meh
  • GSM is superior to CDMA. And the Moto X 2013 has 4.4, with 5.0 incoming shortly.
  • Its superiority is utterly irrelevant to someone who's on a CDMA network.
  • Not really. They could switch carriers.
  • But that doesn't make it superior of you have no intention of leaving cdma Posted via the Android Central App
  • You make that sound like it's easy for most people. It's not. It's also especially not worth doing just to buy a refurbished last-gen phone.
  • It is actually very easy, especially on a postpaid account, walk into the store and tell them you want to switch and they'll walk you through it. Gsm is technically superior to CDMA, its one of the reasons everyone including CDMA carriers are moving to it. The biggest hurdle is really just inertia. Posted via the Android Central App
  • What on earth are you talking about? You can't just walk into your carrier's store and say "hey, switch me from CDMA to GSM." AT&T and T-Mobile are GSM only and Verizon and Sprint are CDMA only. Neither can just switch you to the other no matter how nicely you ask because neither provides the other service. The only way to switch is to cancel your account entirely and open a new account with an entirely different carrier. This is often an expensive endeavor, and much more so if you're on a family plan, and outright impossible if your account is through your employer. And no, CDMA carriers aren't moving to GSM. They, along with GSM carriers, are moving to LTE.
  • The world is bigger than just the USA......most of the world is GSM
  • What if you have no coverage? AT&T has come a long way, but Verizon still has certain areas covered way better. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I know I hate suffering on VZW with the Droid Turbo and coverage everywhere. 4G XLTE coverage. and VoLTE
  • I didn't say Verizon was bad. I just said GSM is a better tech than CDMA. Though I must say, I would never in a million years switch to Verizon. I like being able to buy pretty much any phone in the world, unlocked, no carrier bloat, quick updates, etc and pop a SIM in and use it. With Verizon, you're forever stuck buying whatever Verizon decides to let you have, and it's locked down, full of Verizon bloat, and you get updates when Verizon says you get updates. At least there is one exception now with the Nexus 6, but I prefer to have a lot more carrier free phone options than that.

  • Pretty sure travaz's comment should have had a big ol' /s Posted via the Android Central App
  • So Travaz.... Why are you here then? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Obvious sarcasm, but Verizon service is overrated. Their 3G is incredibly slow, and 4G LTE wasn't nearly as fast as T-Mobile. Switch one year ago was one of the best choices I made.
  • Here in Australia we completely disabled CDMA from all networks at the end of the 90s. Always amazed how backwards the US in somethings.
  • It would be instantly upgradeable to 4.4.4 then 5.0 ASAP Posted via the Android Central App
  • That's just the base specs for when the phone was released. It's obviously going to OTA to 4.4 out of the box and pick up 5.0 soon.
  • Poor ratings here:
  • Is this worth ditching my Nexus 4?
  • Nope. Unless you NEED LTE Posted via the Android Central App
  • Cool. I'll wait. LTE isn't needed.
  • LTE is pretty much standard unless you're on Sprint or Verizon. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Not for me. I don't need my tweets to go through at blazing speeds. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hspa in reframed areas is a hair slower. Not that important Posted via the Android Central App
  • LTE hack for the Nexus 4 works pretty well Posted via the Android Central App
  • Arguable. People REALLY love this phone. Its hand feel and the extra touches Motorola added to it have people very, very happy with it. In performance and screen, it's roughly a wash (except for the potential benefits of AMOLED), but in body design and extra flair, it's somewhat of an advantage.
  • I'm gonna hold off for a Nexus 5, plus the reviews for that site is horrible. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Probably not.
  • for these guys is anything but good.
  • With no lollipop? Yeah right. Lol. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Never heard of custom Roms I'm guessing
  • Maybe they don't want to unlock their device Posted via Android Central App
  • It's upgradeable to lollipop no?
    Just got my 2014 X and loving it! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Not the 13 yet Posted via the Android Central App
  • Moto has said it will be, but it hasn't been released yet.
  • Sold out. :-(
  • Damn looks like it. That was fast. Looks like the only other deal they have is for $229.
  • Wish they had a deal on the Verizon version. I'd like to have a backup of anything ever happened to mine Posted via the Android Central App
