MotoXsmallAre you tired of iOS and Apple devices or perhaps you just want to upgrade your old Android smartphone?

You are in luck! BestBuy has a great sale going on for the second generation Moto X. Right now you can get the 16GB Moto X (Unlocked) variant for just $242.99, before taxes. It looks like BestBuy is clearing up Moto X inventory and making space for a potential new Moto model. I cant say that this is the case for sure, but it sure looks like it.


This is a great deal considering what you get for your money: a smart phone running on a Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU, 2GB RAM, 4G LTE, an amazing 5.2 AMOLED HGD screen, 13.0 MP camera and it is unlocked to all GSM carriers.

NOTE: Be aware that this particular phone will NOT work with Sprint, Verizon, Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile and any other CMDA wireless carriers. Also note that the Moto X does not have a microSD card slot, so make sure that 16GB is enough internal storage to meet your needs. Motorola only decided to include a microSD card on the 3rd generation of its ‘X’ line. The web site also shows that Store pickup is not available. You will have to order this phone online.

I can tell you that if you feel adventurous you can get improved performance and features by unlocking, rooting and installing CyanogenMod. Not that I recommend doing this, but it is one option if you want more from your Moto X 2nd gen. I do not take responsibility for any bricked phones. Proceed with caution and at your own risk.

If your budget is tight and doesn’t allow you to get the Moto X (even while on sale), you can take advantage of the lower priced and smaller 8GB  Moto G 2nd generation, also unlocked. The Moto G 2nd gen. features a smaller  5 inch 720p LCD screen and an 8MP rear camera. The Moto G is one of the  best performing smartphones in terms of sales numbers around the globe. I have to give it to Motorola for making a great hardware and creating a platform they can expand on.
