Hey you. Yes, you, the bitter, angst-ridden Verizon customer who's upset that you've got a snowball's chance in Hell of getting the next Nexus machine on Big Red. Let me console you with deals on a pair of new flagship devices: one that's got pretty much the same guts as the upcoming Nexus, and one that has software that looks kinda like a Nexus. Sort of. If you squint a bit. Anyway, Amazon is selling the LG G2 and the Moto X for just $99.99.
Of course both of the phones have to be bought with a new contract. Returning Verizon customers can get the Moto X for the same price, while re-upping for the G2 will cost $119.99 - still not bad at all for a new device. Best Buy is also offering Verizon's Moto X at $99.99, but Amazon might be able to save you a little on sales tax, depending on where you live. Wirefly is matching Amazon's price on the Verizon LG G2 with $99.99 for new customers and $119.99 for upgrades, besting their previous price by $50. The G2 is more expensive at Best Buy, and ditto for the Moto X at Wirefly.
The G2 is the clear winner on specifications thanks to a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, 13MP camera, a 3000mAh battery, and a Snapdragon 800 processor. But the Moto X has nearly stock Android 4.2, Motorola's admittedly nifty touchless control and active notifications, and a surprisingly ergonomic design. The Moto X can be had in both black and white colors. Choose wisely.
