Moto X Pure + Moto 360 (2nd Gen.) bundle deal and other discounts from Motorola

Motorola isn’t known to be shy about rounding up discounts along its lineup of devices every now and then. Typically, the sales are aimed at older inventory, but the latest puts the two of Motorola’s hottest devices front and center. Let’s run through it.

Moto X Pure Edition + Moto 360 (2nd Gen.)

If you don’t yet have the latest Moto X or Moto 360 (but have been eyeing them both), this might be your chance to take the leap. Motorola is knocking off $100 if you make the combo purchase (a 15% savings on the total of the base costs).


Motorola says that the discount will appear in the shopping cart when they’re both added. The Moto X Pure Edition was Motorola’s 2015 flagship, which has terrific bang for buck. The Moto 360 (2nd Gen.) brought great refinements from the original, you can check out our review here.

Moto X (2nd Gen.)

If you prefer a phone a little easier on the wallet, the Moto X from 2014 is still capable. Motorola has put the 32GB version on sale for $299.


As a refresher, the Moto X (2nd Gen.) has a 5.2″ AMOLED (1080P) display, Snapdragon 801 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera, and 2,300mAh battery.

Moto G (2nd Gen.)

For the even more budget conscious, The 2nd Gen. Moto G has also received a significant discount – from $179 down to $99. In contrast with the other deals, this price drop is actually permanent.


The Moto G (2nd Gen.) packs a 5″ 720P display, Snapdragon 400 SoC (quad-core), 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, 8MP rear camera, and 2,070 battery.

Nexus 6 (Midnight Blue)

The Nexus 6 is still going strong; we’ve even evaluated if it’s the phone to stick with in the midst of all the 2015 releases. Motorola has knocked off $300 from the base price of the Midnight Blue variant (32GB storage).


This 6″ behemoth created quite the stir among Nexus fans at the end of 2014. It packs a 6″ QHD AMOLED display, Snapdragon 805 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 13MP main camera, and 3,220mAh battery.

Bear in mind that some of these discounts are only live for a few days (until Jan. 12th, 10:59am CT), so you better decide soon! Hit up the source link for the sale’s launch page.

Google’s newest phone, the Pixel 4a, is finally available for pre-order. Having blown by its expected May launch, the handset arrives with a wallet-friendly $350 price tag.When much of the fanfare and advertising for phones tends to center around flagships and devices approaching $1,000, Google’s latest is a fraction of the price. Nevertheless, it still has more than enough hardware and modern software to satisfy the needs of the masses.At just $350, the Pixel 4a runs Android 10 and largely features the same camera experience that’s found in the Pixel 4. Moreover, it also has a headphone jack and a bigger battery than the standard model.Android 105.81-inch FHD+ displayQualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor6GB RAM128GB storage12.2-megapixel dual-pixel rear camera8-megapixel wide-angle camera3140mAh battery3.5mm audio jackAs to why the Pixel 4a is less than half the price of the Pixel 4, there are plenty of reasons. It’s just up to the buyer to determine whether it’s worth spending the extra money.With that said, the Pixel 4a does not have wireless charging, nor does it have the soft-touch glass back and water resistant protection. Instead it has a polycarbonate body to keep price down.AvailabilityThe Pixel 4a is available for pre-order in the US at Google Store and on Google Fi where it can be purchased unlocked at just $350.
