When compared to other current flagship smartphones, the Moto X (2014)’s $600 price tag isn’t that shocking. Getting a free phone with that $600 purchase? Now you’re just stealing from Motorola.
Thankfully, you won’t be arrested for it, considering this is part of Motorola’s latest promotion: If you purchase the Moto X Pure Edition, which is only available in the 64GB variant, you will get the second-generation Moto E for free.
The free Moto E is not the 4G LTE version, but rather the $120 3G version. Even so, you’re getting quite a bit of phone with it, as the $120 Moto E packs a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.5-inch 960 x 540 display, 8GB of internal storage, and a 5-megapixel rear camera. All around, the second-generation Moto E seems to represent quite the improvement from the original.
If you want to act on the promotion, though, it’d be best to move swiftly. The promotion ends on March 24, or next Tuesday, and who knows when they might run out. You can buy it on Motorola’s website.
In case you’re wondering just how good a deal this is, we reviewed the Moto X back when it launched last September, and concluded that it was a true flagship smartphone that improved upon its predecessor in almost every way.
Even with the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 looming large, the Moto X (2014) is still a great choice, and since you can now get the Moto E for free, it’s quite the deal.
