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 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 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 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.

Lenovo Moto Z Smartphone Review

 

Moto-mania. Not only does Lenovo's new flagship Moto Z feature high-end technology, it also aims to attract customers with its modular expandability and extremely slim design. Does the concept work in practice or are there even any drawbacks such as...

thin, light chassis with good build quality ; expandable by Moto Mods ; no unnecessary software ; fast USB Type-C port ; microSD-card can be formatted as internal storage ; very fast AC WLAN ; good phone features ; precise touchscreen ; high-resolution...

picture quality of the main camera reveals weaknesses ; no Miracast support ; display with PWM flickering ; no headset included ; battery integrated ; no 3.5 mm headphone jack

Lenovo's new flagship phone Moto Z primarily stands out from the rivals with its modular expandability. These so called Moto Mods introduce new features, which are usually not available for a smartphone. One obstacle could be the pretty high prices of...

Lenovo GSM Moto Z review: Modularity done right, but there are better $700 phones

 

Last month, ZDNet's Jason Cipriani posted his hands-on impressions of the Moto Z Play and Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod and I found the combination to be quite interesting. I reviewed the high end Moto Z Force Droid Edition a couple of months ago too,...

Thin form factor and high quality build ; Functional Moto Mods design ; Pure Google experience ; Useful Moto gestures ; Water repellant nano-coating

Single purpose fingerprint scanner ; Small battery capacity ; Unknown software update plan
