Verizon knocks $50 off customized Moto X price

Moto X fans have got three more days to decide if they want a good deal on the smartphone customized using Moto Maker. Verizon has actually slashed $50 off the price of the Motorola handset on a two-year contract.

What’s more, since the phone is now pegged at $99.99 for its 16GB capacity, you’d only be paying $49.99 for it. This comes just a couple of days after the carrier was seen dropping the LG G2’s cost to a tempting $0 on a two-year customer agreement.

Android Central notes that there’s no need to apply any special promotion code in order to avail of the discount. The $50 drop will automatically be taken care of when users check out their customized Moto X. But you’ll need to hurry since the offer is only open until 11.59 pm EDT on November 18, 2013.

Here’s a quick run of the smartphone’s main specs:

– 4.7-inch, 1280 x 720p touchscreen
– 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor
– Android 4.2.2 OS
– 2GB RAM, 16GB or 32GB internal memory
– 10MP and 2MP cameras
– 2200mAh battery

Of course, if it’s the Moto G you’re waiting for, then Verizon has confirmed through a tweet that it will be selling the device on prepaid plans starting from early 2014. The $179 handset has a quad core 1.2GHz Snapdragon chip, Android 4.3, 4.5-inch 720p display, 1GB RAM, 5/3.8MP main camera, 1.3MP webcam and 8/16GB internal memory.

The customized Moto X should reach buyers within four days after they place their order. We’re still to hear word on the custom engraving and wooden back panel options though.
