Motorola is looking to bring in the new year by making their smartphones more attractive to customers. In the United States, Motorola has reduced the base off-contract price of the Moto X to $399, with wood versions designed through the Moto Maker going for $499. On-contract versions remain at $99 for Sprint, AT&T and Verizon.

Now at the same price as a 32 GB Nexus 5, the Moto X could be a fantastic buy for many people, especially considering the device's interesting voice control options and contextual computing. Specifications for the Moto X include a 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED display, Motorola X8 chipset (Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro with 1.7 GHz dual-core CPU and Adreno 320 GPU) and a 10-megapixel rear camera.

The Moto G, Motorola's lower-end companion to the Moto X, is now available on Verizon at an extremely low price as well. The handset can be purchased already for $99 off-contract at Best Buy, which is around $80 cheaper than the GSM models go for, making it a fantastic purchase for those looking for a decent but cheap smartphone.

Already loaded with Android 4.4 'KitKat' and packed with decent hardware - including a 4.5-inch 720p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC, 5-megapixel rear camera and a 7.86 Wh (2,070 mAh) battery - the Moto G is well kitted out, especially at $99.
