This is not an April Fools’ joke: Motorola is really taking $140 off the Moto X (2014)

Motorola Moto X (2014)
Even though Motorola took a crack at tickling your funny bone with its super-serious selfie stick, the company isn’t joking around with its latest promotion: $140 off the Moto X (2014).

Thanks to the discount, you can grab the 16GB variant of the Moto X (2014) for $360, a pretty significant discount from the $500 you’d normally pay for it. If you feel a bit claustrophobic with just 16GB of internal storage, the discount also applies to the 32GB and 64GB variants.

If you’re not interested in the Moto X (2014), Motorola also has a 30 percent discount for its accessories. Most notably, the company’s P4000 portable charger is $20, down from $80, while the S10 Wireless Headphones are $30, down from $90.

Finally, if you want to jump into Android Wear, the Moto 360 is currently $50 off, putting the price tag at $200. That’s a pretty good deal for the circular smartwatch, even if its successor could be around the corner.

Regardless of the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6, along with the Galaxy S6 Edge, almost available for purchase, the Moto X (2014) is still a great handset to pick up. Even if the Snapdragon 801 chipset and 2GB of RAM aren’t the latest and greatest in terms of horsepower, Motorola’s flagship wowed us with its ability to bring hardware and software together to deliver a fantastic experience.

If you want to take advantage of any of these discounts, keep in mind that they expire on April 2 at 11:59am EST.
