If you're looking to give a lower-end smartphone to a child or a back-up phone for yourself (we won't ask why, don't worry) and get yourself a spanking new device, you might want to pay attention to a new promotion from Motorola. If you buy an off-contract Moto X Pure Edition, you'll get a free 2nd gen edition of the Moto E (the 3G version). That's a pretty good deal if you actually need a new smartphone and the Moto X looks pretty good to you.
Starting today, when you buy a Moto X Pure Edition through the customizable Moto Maker, you'll be able to grab yourself the Moto E (2nd generation). The reviews for Motorola's flagship has been more than stellar and is in fact considered to be one of the best Android devices released recently. Getting it off-contract and through Moto Maker is a pretty good option if you have the extra moolah. Having another phone thrown into the mix makes it an even sweeter deal.
The specs of the Moto E are pretty basic and should be good enough for an entry-level prepaid device. It has a 4.5-inch TFT LCD screen with 540 x 960 pixel resolution, 1GB RAM, 8GB built-in storage, microSD card slot, 5MP camera, VGA front-facing camera, and runs on a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 (8210) processor.
If you want to avail of this deal, you need to movie quick. Remember, you have to get the Moto X off-contract and through Moto Maker, and then add Moto E to your cart to get it for free. The Moto X will cost you around $400 and the value of the Moto E is $120.
