If you were hoping to snag a coupon code for $150 off on a Moto X, then it’s time to let the holiday spirit fill you up. Thanks to a few generous readers who received codes, but then decided against picking up a device, we have 16 coupon codes for an off-contract Moto X. You can use the codes through MotoMaker, which will allow you to buy a 16GB Moto X for just $350 or a 32GB model for $400. It’s quite a deal, and if you will recall, this deal brought down Motorola’s site on Cyber Monday when it went live. (more…)
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? (more…)
Everyone ready for take two of Motorola’s Cyber Monday extravaganza bonanza? After a rocky go-of-things on Monday, Motorola is kickstarting their $150-off Moto X promo this morning at 9AM Pacific (12PM Eastern). Things are a bit different this time around though, as you can’t purchase a custom made MotoMaker Moto X until Motorola has given you a code. (more…)
After yesterday’s Cyber Monday fiasco, Motorola has unveiled their new plan to award many of you with a Moto X for $150 off the full retail price. Instead of dealing with “rushed checkouts” and a flood of traffic to their site all at once, Motorola has decided to hand out coupon codes that can be redeemed for the $150-off promo price within a week. In other words, on either Wednesday (December 4, tomorrow) or next Monday (December 9), you’ll have the chance to register for a coupon code that can later be redeemed for a custom made Moto X through MotoMaker for the discounted Cyber Monday price.

According to sources of ours, the US Cellular variant of the Moto X will finally receive its Kit Kat (Android 4.4) update starting tomorrow. As build 13.11.3, users will see the entire new Kit Kat experience, along with improvements to the camera, Active Display, Touchless Control, and Motorola Assist. US Cellular is also planning to throw in updates to some of their bloatware apps as well.
With US Cellular’s variant receiving the update, I believe that leaves Sprint as the lone Moto X without Android 4.4. And we thought Verizon was slow. (more…)
Motorola would probably like to forget 2013′s Cyber Monday as quickly as possible. The day started with excitement over the Moto X deal they planned to kick off – $150 off full retail phones – but quickly turned into a disaster once their site buckled under the heavy amounts of traffic that flooded in minutes before the sale was to begin. Customers sat on their MotoMaker site for hours trying to get in orders and as they waited for some sort of word out of Motorola’s camp as to what was happening. We didn’t know much until we were 12 hours in, something their CEO is now apologizing for. (more…)
Well, folks, today didn’t exactly goes as planned if your calendar included a scheduled appearance on Motorola’s MotoMaker site. As you are all well aware, Motorola wanted to kick off a Cyber Monday deal at 9AM ET that would let you walk into a custom made Moto X for $349, which is $150 off the full retail price of their 2013 flagship. It was supposed to be the deal of the day, at least in our books. Unfortunately, we never got to the deal thanks to a massive amount of traffic flooding Motorola’s site before the deal kicked off, crashing it into oblivion. (more…)
Amazon might be the king of Cyber Monday deals, but that’s no surprise if you consider the variety of products that can be purchased through their online shop. I will say, that it can often times be somewhat overwhelming to sift through, especially on days like today where all you want to do is find the best possible deals to spend your hard earned money on. So to hopefully help you out some, we have gone ahead and cruised through the phone listings of Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint to find you the best deals available.
In the lists below, you’ll see phones like the brand new white LG G2, Moto X in either black or white, and HTC One in a handful of colors for as little as $0.01 on new contract. You’ll also find the Nexus 5 for Sprint in either black or white for as little as $9.99 on contract.
