Mini review video: Our quick verdict on the new Moto Z phones


Think of the Moto Z Force as the Moto Z's big brother: It offers the same premium performance as the regular Z, but adds a larger battery, a camera that performs better in most situations, and a screen that resists damage. All of this makes the Z Force...

Sturdy, incredibly slim design ; Great display ; Moto Mods are elegant and have potential ; Excellent performance ; Charges really fast

It's a Verizon exclusive ; No headphone jack ; Camera not quite as good as the Z Force's ; Middling battery life

Lenovo Moto Z and Z Force review


The Moto Z is the first ‘modular' phone you'll want to own on Verizon.

Lenovo shifted the Moto brand and made it its own with the and . Both phones look different from previous Moto phones and they offer a smart, simple approach to modules. The Moto Z Force is our favorite of the two with its larger battery and...

Motorola Moto Edge Review


Solid battery life ; Nice display ; 3.5mm headphone jack

Mediocre cameras ; No IP rating ; Lacks wireless charging

The $699 Motorola Moto Edge delivers a solid 5G experience for less money than most competing phones right now.

Motorola Moto E4 review


Motorola makes wonderful budget phones like the Moto G5 and the G5 Plus . Its newest addition is the Moto E4 which packs a lot of features: Android Nougat 7.1, a fingerprint sensor, a removeable battery and a selfie flash all within a body the size of...

The Moto E4 has a near stock version of Android Nougat, a fingerprint reader, a removeable battery, a selfie flash and is splash resistant -- all while being ridiculously cheap.

The display is hard to see in sunlight and the camera is slow to process photos.

The Moto E4 is the cheapest Motorola phone but doesn't compromise too much on its amenities.

Motorola Moto Z


The unlocked Motorola Moto Z works on AT&T and T-Mobile while offering the same slim design and unique removable backs as the Z Droid on Verizon.

Slim design. Useful removable backs. Excellent performance. No bloatware. Google Daydream-compatible.

Camera isn't the best. No headphone jack.

For $700, the unlocked Moto Z offers the same slim build, excellent performance, and unique removable backs as Verizon's Moto . If you're an AT&T or T-Mobile user into the idea of Mot Mods, the Moto Z is a great choice. Only the LG G5 has similar...

Moto Z review: This magnetic, 'modular' phone just clicks


Halfway between Google's ambitious Project Ara and LG's clunky G5 emerges a modular phone with an approach we can get behind.

The Motorola Moto Z is thin, fast and (literally) snappy. Those magnetic Mods accessories are practical and easy to use.

The phone looks naked without the Mods, and its fingerprint reader can be easily mistaken for a home button.

Ambitious, quirky and ultimately useful, the Motorola Moto Z is the most polished and customizable modular phone yet.

Motorola Moto Z review


Upon its debut in July, Motorola's premium Moto Z made waves with its magnetic snap-on accessories. Unlike the LG G5 , which featured swappable components but fell short on execution, the Moto Z's modularity offered coherence and ease of use.

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...

Motorola Moto E4 Smartphone Review


Removable. In this case we mean it in a positive way, since the battery can be removed in the Moto E4. The smartphone is also quite affordable and offers a fingerprint sensor. You can find out in the test whether the competition needs to brace for this.

removable battery ; dedicated microSD slot ; not sensitive to pressure ; quite a lot of LTE bands ; fingerprint sensor ; pure Android ; bright display, good contrast ; hardly warms up ; decent voice quality

cover is very tight ; back cover bends easily ; outdated security patches ; slow WLAN ; quite inaccurate GPS ; camera images blurry in parts ; high power consumption

The Moto E4 is an affordable smartphone that offers some highlights, such as a fingerprint sensor, pure Android, and removable battery. If you don't consider the camera the most important feature in a smartphone or depend on exact navigation, then you...

Lenovo Moto G5 Smartphone Review


The next generation. With its latest reincarnation, the Moto G tries to lure us with good value for money and a charming appearance. Our in-depth review is going to reveal whether or not the fifth generation Moto G is once again going to tread in its...

high quality sturdy metal case ; user replaceable battery ; dual-sim version available ; current version of Android 7 ; fast WiFi ; decent call quality ; fingerprint reader ; very bright high-contrast display ; decent speaker ; moderate power consumption

display suffers from slight blue tint ; security patches not up to date ; gets pretty warm ; bad camera performance in low-light conditions ; inaccurate color reproduction in photos

At first glance, we can already tell that the Moto G5 is indeed a very interesting smartphone: affordable yet equipped with a premium display, light metal case, decent interior, and user replaceable battery. Lenovo seems to be on a mission to prove...
