During the Christmas season, Motorola silently introduced another storage option to its Moto X smartphone. For an off-contract price of $599, users can now opt for 64 gigabytes of flash memory inside their device, as long as they buy it directly from the Moto Maker website.
Back when the Moto X was first launched in September last year, Motorola was offering the device with only two storage options: a 16 gigabyte edition for $499, and a 32 gigabyte edition for $549 (consumers just need to pay $50 more). Because the Moto X is not equipped with a micro SD card slot, consumers were forced to make do with whatever storage capacity their Moto X unit offered.
The fact that Motorola did not initially offer a 64 gigabyte edition of the Moto X may be a surprise to many. Sure, a lot of users would have preferred having the third storage option made available sooner rather than later. But for those who rely extensively on cloud services in storing their data, music, and other files, not having a 64 gigabyte edition of the Moto X may not be that big a deal.
Still, those who like their Moto X devices equipped with lots of storage space should be delighted with the introduction of the 64 gigabyte edition. It should be noted that this edition is an unlocked GSM version called the Pure Edition. It is sold with no contract and can work on both AT&T and T-Mobile networks. The device comes with a pre-inserted T-Mobile SIM, and can be used on AT&T and T-Mobile 4G LTE.
And because we are talking about the Pure Edition Moto X, the 64 gigabyte device you get will come with the usual Pure Edition setup. This means you will get Google's Android apps, Motorola's Android apps, and zero carrier apps.
The Moto X has been recognized by many critics as one of the best smartphones released in 2014. It certainly helped that the device got its Android 5.0 Lollipop update faster than most smartphones.
As for its specifications, the Moto X really does impress. It boasts a 5.2-inch full HD display screen plus a 13-megapixel camera on the rear side. It is powered by a 2.5 GigaHertz Snapdragon 801 processor that is supported with 2 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM). It also has a 2,300 mAh battery for good measure.
