Motorola’s latest coupon code bonanza kicked off moments ago, which means you have a chance to save $140 on your next $499+ purchase or $50 on your next $249+ purchase through their online shop.
The deal works like all of their other deals in that you sign-up to receive a coupon code that will give you the discount. Once you receive that coupon code, you have a set amount of time to use it (up to February 14) or pass it along to a friend. Devices like the Moto X (2nd gen) and Moto 360 are a part of the promo.

On February 2, Motorola will offer another $140 discount on purchases of $499.99 or higher for devices like the Moto X (2nd gen), similar to the one many of you took advantage of on Cyber Monday. They will also offer a $50 discount on accessories like the Moto 360. Next Monday, you will have the opportunity to register for a promo code that will give you the discount upon checkout. (more…)
Motorola officially made its return to China this morning in a keynote that was filled with dancing, fist pumping, and excitement. The event kicked off the launch of their whole product line-up in an area of the world that Motorola hasn’t been for some time. If it means anything to you, the Chicago-based smartphone maker pointed out that they managed to jump into China just three months after Lenovo closed their acquisition of them. Of course, Lenovo is a Chinese company, so it’s not that surprising that it all came through this quickly.
Anyways, today kicks off the launch of Motorola’s line-up that includes the Moto X (2nd gen), Moto G (2nd gen) with LTE, Moto X Pro, and Moto Hint. The Moto 360 will come some time later, but for now, Moto wants us to focus on those first four products. (more…)
For a limited time, you can pick up the Moto X (1st Gen) Developer Edition smartphone through eBay for just $199. This model of the Moto X comes unlocked, perfect for developers and users who enjoy tinkering. (more…)
As you can imagine, there were plenty of skeptics who questioned Motorola’s decision to offer Horween leather as an option through Moto Maker with the new Moto X (2nd gen). Leather certainly isn’t as durable, at least in most cases, when compared to plastic or wood. It’s soft, after all, so on one level, I can understand that point of view. But I can tell you that from the minute I first held a leather-backed Moto X in my hand at the phone’s unveiling, I knew exactly which version I would go with if I were to buy one – you guessed it, leather. What a fantastic decision that was. (more…)
According to a software engineer over at Motorola, who recently took to his Google+ account to let people in on the timeframe of their Lollipop updates, devices from 2013 and 2014 should be receiving the expected Lollipop updates, “really soon.” (more…)
Motorola, in a somewhat surprising move, announced today that it is returning to China with a handful of devices, two of which are new to their lineup. For starters, the new Moto G (2nd gen) will now officially come in a 4G LTE variety. But more importantly, they are showing up to market with a Moto X Pro. That’s right, the Moto X, a phone that we called the top phone of 2014, will now come in a Pro style. (more…)
Motorola, in a not-so-surprising-semi-expected-but-very-frustrating-for-early-adopters move, announced this morning that the Moto X (2nd gen) “Pure Edition” can now be purchased with an optional 64GB of storage. The jump to 64GB will cost an extra $100 over the 16GB model, but you should certainly consider going with the extra storage, since this phone doesn’t have a micro SD slot.
For now, the 64GB option is only for the unlocked “Pure Edition,” which is sold without a contract and works on both AT&T and T-Mobile networks. It will cost you at least $599, depending on the other options you pick.
If you are buying the Moto X (2nd gen), the “Pure Edition” is the version we would recommend going with because it receives updates faster than any other version of the Moto X and isn’t directly affiliated with any carrier.
