The Moto X customization was what had attracted many fans who wanted to have some colorful and different back panels than the standard white or black colors for most of the smartphones around. It was an AT&T exclusive for a lot of time now, but finally the Moto Maker website shows this possible for the other networks too – T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint and it includes both the 16 GB and the 32 GB models. Along with the color options for the front, back panels and the buttons, the Moto Maker has included the Engraving option for the back panel.
The options are the same as in the AT&T customization earlier, as the users can select from the 18 colors and the black/white front color, seven Accent colors which would show up on the power and volume buttons, as well as on the ring around the rear camera lens. The other things that you can do along with the color changes, include:
- Engrave your name or short message on the back panel
- Add a name or short message to the boot icon
- Select the default wallpaper
- Pre-sync the Moto X with your Google account
The engraving would be possible on the bottom area on back panel, and if you don’t get anything engraved, it would be the carrier logo shown at the same place, and it wouldn’t be an empty space.
For the customers of AT&T, Verizon and Sprint can get the Moto X on contract for $99.99 on contract, and the unsubsidized model for $499.99. The T-mobile users cannot get this on contract and can purchase only the unsubsidized model through Moto Maker. It’s good to see that the 32GB version too is available, but you will have to shell out $50 more on both the on-contract and off-contract purchases.
