Republic Wireless made news last year when it started selling the Moto X for what was, at the time, a very compelling price. Now the Sprint MVNO has gotten the 2014 Moto X ready for its special hybrid calling service. It's coming December 10th for $399. That's $100 less than the regular off-contract price.Read More
Motorola got folks pretty excited when it started soak testing Android Lollipop for the pure edition of this year's Moto X, signaling that the update would soon arrive. It did. But not everyone bought the Moto X this way. Many Americans don't even know this is an option, instead walking into the carrier store and pointing out the phone they want to the person in the red shirt. What about them?Read More
Motorola's been planning a soak test for select users of the Moto X 2014 Pure Edition for a little while now, and it looks like it's officially beginning. Earlier this evening, a tipster shared a shot of the update prompt with us, confirming that the test is bringing Android 5.0 Lollipop to the handset, earlier than Google's own OTAs for existing Nexus devices (besides the new Nexus 9 and unreleased Nexus 6).Read More

AT&T will start selling the Moto 360 on November 7th, and it's willing to take $50 off the price if you pick up this year's Moto X at the same time. The company wants you to view this offer as a deal, and like everything having to do with major carriers in the US, that depends.
If you have no desire to own the Moto X, then this is a pretty deep hole to jump into just to save $50 on a smartwatch.Read More
Here's one for our beloved UK-based readers—the new Moto X is on sale with a pretty reasonable discount on your side of the Atlantic, but you'll have to act fast. Until tomorrow, October 29th at noon, you can get the Moto X for £359.99 (£60 off).Read More
Thanks to high-end specs, a relatively "clean" build of Android, and Motorola's improved reputation, the Moto X 2014 (AKA Moto X Second Generation) is fast becoming a favorite among Android power users. And now that it's been out in the wild for a few weeks, the modders are lining up to write the usual custom ROMs and tweaks. To help facilitate that, the folks at Team Win have brought their custom recovery to the new flagship.Read More
Motorola's always-on voice control system is a little less special than it was a year ago, but it's still a neat feature. It's still got some room to grow, though.
