Moto X Officially Arrives on AT&T August 23

Screen Shot 2013-08-16 at 7.42.52 AM

It’s official – the Moto X is launching at AT&T on August 23. For $199, you can pick up the 16GB white or black versions in store, or pay $249 for the 32GB variant. Monthly payments for the phone through AT&T Next is also an option, be we suggest acting like that plan doesn’t exist, unless you like getting ripped off.

What you’ll really want to do is order through MotoMaker, which we just took another tour of. Who wouldn’t want to customize their brand new phone? Once ordered, it only takes four days for your phone to arrive. To help launch MotoMaker, AT&T is going to offer a “few lucky customers” who registered at www.att.com/MotoX the chance to customize their phone on August 19, days before the rest of the world. But before you order through MotoMaker, AT&T will have samples of colored variants in stores for you to check out.

Be sure to check out our Moto X review if you haven’t already.

    Anybody know if I have someone in the states order a custom moto x phone, and sent it to Canada, if it would work properly on Rogers?

    My only concern is I’m going to buy this phone, and then KLP is going to come out, and then I’ll be waiting 4 months for the phone to be updated.

    If this thing had a removable battery I’d be all over it. But seeing how my RAZR MAXX is doing after 19 months, I either want one to be like the new MAXX or to be removable.

    I almost want to sign a contract. ugh.

    • Kofi Williams

      Do you have to be on contract to make and buy one?

      • Daeshaun Griffiths

        They didn’t say the option to buy outright is there. But i’d wait for the GP option to see if theres any customization there

    So help me out world. Looking to upgrade my Rezound on Verizon, still have unlimited data. Obviously going to pay full retail.
    I don’t want a Samsung phone, will never buy another HTC, and LG doesn’t do anything for me.

    So should I get a X when it comes out, or one of the Droids? Screen size is secondary, my main hope is that I’ll be to use FoxFi with my Nexus 7. Hence why I’m never buying another HTC.

      How important are on-screen buttons and/or personalization of the phone (if you’re going to wait for verizon to get moto maker)…

      If neither are important, no reason why the Droid Maxx isn’t a good choice. I’m like you, it’s time to put down my VZ GNex and these new Moto devices are as close to stock as we’ll get on VZ.

      • Bailers77

        The personalization sounds nice, but it’s not mandatory. I’ll take another look at the Maxx. Battery life is one thing I like about my Rezound. Throw in the extended monster of a battery, and the sucker lasts all day.

      • michael arazan

        That’s one of the Main Reasons for me to gfet a Moto X cause it is so close to stock and I can’t stand skins. I prefer a large screen that is vibrant and bright for HD videos, and having the best processors is a plus for speed when using the internet browser and videos and music, But stock means a lot more

    • Edwin M

      All that stuff you said is my situation exactly. They way HTC and VZW handled the Rezound turned me off to HTC. Even though I like the way the HTC One looks but I refuse to get another HTC device on VZW ever again.

    • Why FoxFi? Why not just use the built in tether features of android 4.0+? I have stock 4.2.2 on my S3 and I connect my computer etc to my phone when necessary using that.

      • Bailers77

        Rezound = stuck at 4.0.3 🙁

        Built in tether/hotspot is locked on the Rezound. And I’m not willing to root just yet.

        • Rooting and roming an android phone is probably the single greatest thing you could do to it. A know some people are scared they’ll mess it up but it’s so worth it.

    • maxfrix

      Droids should only be nicer. Same guts basically, better red screens. How could you go wrong?

  • fd2blk78

    Just upgraded my razr maxx to a razr hd. Its awesome.

    • JoshGroff

      Having owned one for a good solid week, I agree. Ended up returning it for the DNA though, since S-off was conveniently achieved within my return period.

  • cns2007

    Motorola, I personally feel you’re really blowing a major opportunity with this exclusivity crap.

    • marko358

      At least let people know when other carriers will get access.

      • NexusPhan69

        Agreed. This is the reason Android looks bad. It’s not all the BS about fragmentation, apps, phone materials or whatever else Apple fanbois make up in their heads. It crap like this. How hard is it to announce a release date and price when you announce the phone? I mean, come on. This is ridiculous.
