If you’re in the market for a capable, customizable off-contract smartphone that won’t break the bank, Motorola has a new deal that may be worth your while. From now until Tuesday, January 26th at 10:59 AM CST, you’ll be able to purchase an unlocked 2014 Moto X from Motorola for only $249.99. Considering the second-gen Moto X was one of the best Android smartphones to come out last year, this is a steal.
Perhaps the best part of this deal is that, since it’s being sold through Motorola, you’ll be able to customize your device with the Moto Maker program. You’ll be able to choose whichever back plates, front plates, accent colors and more, as always. It should be noted that the natural and leather back plate options will still cost a $25 premium, which still isn’t bad considering the $50 discount.

If you need a refresher, the 2014 Moto X comes with a 5.2-inch AMOLED Full HD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 2300mAh battery and a 13MP rear camera. Plus, since this is the unlocked model we’re talking about here, it also runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. It might be a little dated at this point, but it still has some very compelling features that will definitely make some folks happy.
