From 3PM – 4PM ET this afternoon, Motorola held another sale for their 2013 flagship, Moto X. During that time, you could cruise over to Motorola’s site and fill out a form that would land you a promo code for $100 off a device. For those who managed to sign-up during that short 1-hour window, you should have already received your code that is good until February 3 at midnight.
With $100 off of a full retail Moto X, you are looking at a starting price of just $299 (MotoMaker included). If you upgrade features, like say the storage to 32GB, you could still get into a brand new custom designed Moto X for as little as $349. Or better yet, the Developer Editions were also down to $349 with this deal. Talk about a steal.
Since the sale happened during the middle of the day, we can imagine that many of you didn’t have a chance to reserve your promo code before the hour was up. For those who missed out, we thought we’d put together another spot for DL community members to share codes that they don’t plan on using. We have done this in the past and always seem to see plenty of love being tossed around.
So if you need a code or have an extra lying around, feel free to share in the comments.
Ready to grab a Moto X at $100 off the full retail price? Starting as low as $299 (with the discount), you can grab the device that we dubbed the top Android phone of 2013. That $299 price is for the 16GB model, but the 32GB model and Developer Editions are also $100 off, dropping them to $349. Again, these are off-contract prices here, folks. Motorola has essentially topped their previous “best deal in tech” that took place over Cyber Monday.
The sale is live for one hour, so get in while you can! All you have to do is hit up the link below, fill out the form, and wait for your unique promo code to arrive. Once you have your promo code, you can use it during checkout to buy the phone and save the additional $100.

At 3PM ET (12PM Pacific), Motorola is hosting yet another mega Moto X sale. As you are all well aware, the price of the Moto X has already been permanently dropped to $399 on an on-going basis, so if we’re talking new sale, that means an even bigger drop from that price point. For one hour only (3PM-4PM ET), the Moto X will be available starting at $299 for the 16GB model. The 32GB and Developer Edition variants will drop to $349. (more…)
Our custom made Moto X with a Walnut finish has arrived, so as is typical around these parts, we took it for a spin on camera to let you see and hear our thoughts on it. As one may have expected after seeing our Bamboo unboxing, we are pleased with the results. A real wood back with custom accents, on the phone that our staff unanimously gave “phone of the year” in 2013 to. How can you beat that? (more…)
Still looking to score a Moto X? Maybe at a discounted price? Motorola announced a new sale that is set to take place next Monday on January 27. The deal will only last a single hour online, beginning at 3pm EST and ending at 4pm EST. During that time frame, you can grab an off contract Moto X for $100 off of the full retail price – $299 for the 16GB model and $349 for the 32GB model. (more…)
Motorola just pushed an update to the Gallery application on its Moto X and new DROID devices (Moto G too). The update includes an entirely new UI to an aging, stock-Android-esque Gallery app that these devices ran out of the box. This new UI includes a swipeable Hamburger (slideout) navigation menu, “larger thumbnails, displayed the way you took them,” a Timeline of your pictures, quick access to your camera roll, and albums in a more familiar layout.
Again, the update appears to only be for the Moto X, the new DROID family (ULTRA, MAXX, and Mini) and the Moto G. If you have any of those devices, head into Google Play and update right away. (more…)
Outside of being a huge Droid Life fan, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside is also good for a headline-grabbing quote or two when it comes to future products from his company. In an interview with Trusted Reviews, Woodside said that he thinks there is a price point well below the Moto G at $179 that can be reached. He also mentioned that when it comes to customization, options for screen size and additional functionality will arrive in the “next year or so.”
Let’s tackle this new lower cost bit first, since the Moto G seems to be the hot topic of the moment these days. Woodside said that even at $179, the Moto G is still a “lot of money” in much of the world, so they are going to push for an even lower cost phone, potentially at around $50. Think about that for a second – a smartphone at $50 without a contract. And if this newly assembled Motorola is behind it, after seeing some of the magic they worked with the Moto G, I’d imagine it will be worth a look. (more…)

Once installed, it will walk you through the process of transferring your important info from old phone to new phone. With thew new update, you’ll have to choose initially whether you transferring from an iPhone or an Android device.
