Ausdroid has heard your feedback loud, very loud, and very clear. In our coverage of Motorola’s 2015 range, including the Moto G 3rd Gen, Moto X Play and Moto X Style, your feedback has been overwhelming. We’ve had over 175 comments across our recent coverage, and that tells us something. You guys are pretty damned excited about what Motorola’s offering, and that’s a good thing; we’re excited about it too.
We’ve also heard your feedback that you don’t like the idea of Vodafone’s exclusive on the handsets, and not being able to buy them outright. That feedback has come through comments on our articles, discussions on social media, and comments on Google+.
We’ve been talking to Motorola, and Vodafone, and talking to them a lot in the last couple of days. I’ll cut to the chase. Our advocacy, your demand for these phones, and Vodafone’s genuine desire to do the right thing by customers has come to a head, and we’re happy to announce this:
From today, and until close of business on Tuesday 29 September, you can buy both the Moto X Play and Moto X Style, outright, from any Vodafone store (provided they’ve got them in stock). The Moto X Play will be available outright for $528, and the Moto X Style available for $792.
This instruction has come from head office and has gone to all front-line staff, so there should be no issues. If you want either phone, pop into a Vodafone store and tell them you’d like to buy it outright. Show them a copy of this article if needs be, and walk out with your new Moto.
Will this development see you buying a Moto X Style or Play from a Vodafone store? Please let us know in the comments.
