Motorola Moto Z Play Droid

 

The Motorola Moto Z Play Droid for Verizon is a relatively affordable midrange Android phone with the same modular functionality as its higher-end siblings.

Affordable. Modular backs add functionality. Good battery life. Sharp camera with 4K video recording. Includes a headphone jack, fingerprint scanner, NFC, and expandable storage.

Wi-Fi connectivity issues in testing. Some bloatware.

Conclusions The Moto Z Play Droid is a relatively affordable Android phone that balances price and gives you access to the Verizon cellular network, and can be enhanced using Motorola's modular Moto Mods. At $408, it's more than $200 less than the and...

Motorola Moto Z Droid

 

The Motorola Moto Z Droid is a cool smartphone with removable backs, but it lags slightly behind its bigger sibling.

Slim design. Functional removable backs. Excellent performance.

Wi-Fi performance issues. Camera isn't the best.

Comparisons and Conclusions The Motorola Moto packs a lot into a very slim package. Were there no Force version, it would be a close second to the Galaxy S7 series. Motorola's Android software is better than Samsung's, and the Moto Mods are genuinely...

Moto Z Play Droid Review: Innovative and Everlasting

 

The Motorola Moto Z Play Droid is a mid-range smartphone with an innovative and semi-modular design. It's definitely different from other Android smartphones, but is it any good?

Too much carrier bloatware ; Fingerprint sensor easily confused for home button ; Too much carrier bloatware ; Fingerprint sensor easily confused for home button

Motorola gives us hope the modular smartphone can work. It smartly implemented the feature with the Moto Z lineup, and then combined it with a world-class battery to make the Moto Z Play Droid a compelling smartphone. There’s plenty of competition in...

The Moto Z Play Droid is a more affordable modular phone

 

At least it's still fully compatible with all existing Moto Z modules.

Works with all Moto Mods ; Long battery life ; Includes a headphone jack ; Water-repellent

Weaker performance ; So much Verizon bloatware ; Average cameras ; Fingerprint sensor still doesn’t work like a home button

The Moto Z Play Droid is a decent addition to the Moto Z modular family, but it isn’t a groundbreaking device.

Definitely best Android phone I used!!

 

Hands down best phone I've ever had since my Note 5. I had a huge review I typed up and my dumbass just hit the back button. The z play, I've yet had to reboot it or have it freeze or lag and I've had it for the last month. I really don't rate or give...

Longest lasting battery EVER

 

I've had this phone for a week and I've only had to charge it three times. First charge lasted 48 hours. I was shocked. I've had dozens of phones and none have even come close to this battery life. And I'm a heavy user, including hotspot, movies, etc....

one of the best

 

Best phone for reception and battery life hands down. If you need good signal and the absolute best battery life of any smartphone, this is it. Display is sharp, camera is good for most people and i cant really think of any negatives except size maybe....
