It runs Android KitKat and has a a number of unique software features like Active Display, which lights up the phone's display to show notifications of missed calls, texts and upcoming calendar events when you pick the phone up or take it out of your pocket.

  1. I have a GSM unlocked Moto X. Even with its "midrange" specs, it runs smoother than my S4 or iPhone 5 (both I've gotten rid of since I got my X). Only people who have never tried a Moto X (or are mindless drones in the spec wars) would think that a Moto X isn't a real flagship phone just BC of its specs.

    1. I bought a new MotoX with teak back and used it for 6 weeks before selling. I liked it, especially Active Notifications and Google Now from lock screen, but not as much as my iPhone 5C. I did not like the wide and thin housing, and a few of the black and white screens with outdated fonts looked old and clunky vs modern KitKat. Moto performance was good, the same data speed as the 5C on HSPA+. No love, but it is still the Android I would use if I had to.

    2. 5c, the chick phone!

    3. Yes, chicks love my 5C - I get compliments. It's the Fun iPhone, vs. the Geek iPhone 5S with the 64-bit King of processors. I don't have to say anything dorky like "Wanna see my fake-Teak back?"

  2. Dennis,

    I'm not sure you are aware, but the May 1, 2014 Moto Maker sale also applies to Republic Wireless, a CDMA Sprint MVNO.

    If you purchase a Moto X through the Moto Maker website, the recently re-introduced Republic Wireless "Refer-A-Friend" program does not apply.

    The price on May 1, 2014 for Republic Wireless customers is the same as noted in your post.

    1. Thanks for reminding me. I've updated the post to include the fact that the Moto Maker sale includes the Republic Wireless version of the phone.

  3. This is the PERFECT �� example of why NOT to buy the CDMA version: You can ONLY use it on Verizon or Sprint; and subject to their whims, whether or not on one of their related MVNOs.
    Buy the Unlocked GSM version, and you have a plethora of PREPAID/MVNOs from where to choose...
