Officially, I have not selected my new Android phone. I’m leaning toward Nexus 5, but since Verizon doesn’t support the phone, and I have 1 year left on my contract — it’s way too expensive to buy out and buy new phones for everyone — I’m leaning toward keeping my devices until it’s economically feasible to switch to T-Mobile (I do have student loans to pay, after all).
Well, I was lamenting my current situation until I saw this news from Motorola Mobility:
This seems like the best of both worlds: new phone and stay on Verizon (for now).
I also discovered that you can pre-order your phone (everything but checkout) on the Moto X website, and then visit the site on Monday to complete the transaction and still receive the deal.
With the $150 discount, you’re basically paying the same amount as a Nexus 5 for the 16 GB or 32 GB phones. So, with both devices running Android 4.4, it’s a difficult decision.
