Contest: Win a Moto X Developer Edition (Verizon) From Droid Life!

Even though we probably have a Moto X or three lying around the house and could probably outfit a small army with them, there were two models we still had yet to get our hands on as of the beginning of this week – the Developer Editions. So the minute we heard that Motorola would be slashing $150 off of their prices on Cyber Monday, we knew that our credit cards would be salivating. Yes, we bought both the GSM and Verizon Developer Editions of the Moto X. But you know what? We really like to give sh*t away here at Droid Life. Rather than keep these hacker-friendly devices all to ourselves, we want you to put them to use. Tinker. Unlock. Root. Flash. Everything.

Today, we’ll run our first of two contests that will give you the opportunity to win one of these Moto X Developer Editions. Since we know how much you love Verizon, we are putting the CDMA variant up for grabs first in today’s contest. Either tomorrow or Monday, the GSM model will be up for grabs.

Who is ready?ย 


Prize: ย 1 (one) Moto X Developer Edition (CDMA model)

  • mbentley311

    Obviously the first thing I would do after turning it on would be to unlock the bootloader and root it. However, the second thing I would do would be to show it off to my iPh*ne-using co-worker on the other side of my cube wall… so that he may see and feel (briefly) how awesome the phone really is! …not that he’s an Android hater or anything, I would just love to show him how much Android is capable of and hopefully turn him into a future Android owner, haha!

  • Jeremy

  • b00m


  • Kasey Capanna

    I would sit back and relax having closure about wasting 5 and a half hours trying to purchase the cyber Monday Moto X DE deal just to have the site tell me at checkout “an item in your cart is no longer available.” If my boss knew, I’d be in trouble.

  • avinyc

    Most likely I would charge it, then turn it on, stand it next to my gnex and, invoking my best sam kinison impression, have it lodge insulting comments about all the headaches both google and verizon put me through over the last 2 years. After an hour (the gnex battery most likely dead at this point), I would start activating the moto x while warning it of the same ridicule if it doesn’t live up to its potential 2 years from now.

    Hide the charger that comes with it, bc i swear my girlfriend thinks every charger is hers

  • MikeKorby

    I think the first thing I would do is hug it. Then thank DL. After that, I would take a series of (blurry) pictures of it on my GNEX, just so that I know that the Nexus knows which sexy beast replaced it. I will continue to take pictures until the battery dies (which will be after about 6 images). At which point, I will finally decide it is time to pop in ‘dat SIM’ and enjoy my life as a Moto X user.

    5. Profit

  • zakry obrien

    Activate that sexy beast and toss this sad g-nex away

  • Ashley James

    Motorola is pathetic and very behind its competitors. I hate it


    • Jacob Chang

      you are wrong iphone is not the leader as mentioned in your amazing article samsung is leader

      • Ashley James

        in terms of quality and performance iphone is the best, samsung is second grade hardware

  • MikeSaver

    Fling my hand around and quick capture all over the place

  • Dave

    Unlock and root that sucka! No warranties to void but I would if I could!

  • Jay Ochs

    i’d love one.

  • Michael Evans

    First thing I would do is take a video of me destroying my asurion replaced droid razr maxx hd screen to prove they don’t replace it with the same screen, the “new” crappy one cracks so easy, but they SWEAR its the same screen. My original razr maxx hd i treated like a football and it never cracked, needed insurance because i broke the charging port. First replacement phone had the screen shattered from a 2 inch drop onto my wood nightstand after snoozing my alarm. Paid the 100 again, but am terrified of this one shattering because I have other friends with similar issues with asurion replacements. Phone insurance should mean you get a NEW phone right from the jackass behind the counter at the verizon store. It should not be them dialing a number and handing you a nasty phone, sitting on hold, dealing with another jackass, then pay $100, followed by 1 or 2 days of waiting. Only good thing i can say about them is that they didn’t say a thing about my phones being unlocked and rooted, which i would also do to the wonderful moto x.

    tl;dr I want this phone to root and rom and asurion insurance sucks.
