Moto Z2 Play review


Moto Z2 Play is at the helm of a new marketing strategy free of any Lenovo branding that may burden the series with unnecessary heritage. Navigating through the lucrative but overcrowded upper-midrange territory sure isn't easy, but a useful innovation...

This new Moto phone's battery lasts 17 hours


Its all-day battery life makes it one of the longest-lasting phones you can buy.

The Moto Z2 Play has a beautiful screen and all-day battery life. There’s expandable storage, lots of software tricks and even a headphone jack.

Its best software feature doesn’t always work. The phone feels wide and uncomfortable without a magnetic back cover, and not much better with covers that don’t fit well. Last year’s Z Play had much longer battery life.

Strong battery life, clever software and magnetic Mod add-ons make the Motorola Z2 Play a compelling midrange choice.

Motorola Moto Z2 Play


The Z2 Play is a unique unlocked phone that combines solid performance with a modular design that taps into Motorola's Moto Mods add-ons.

Useful modular design. Current software and virtually no bloatware. Compatible with all major US carriers. Long battery life.

Difficult to use with one hand. Tinny speaker. Slightly pricey for the specs.

The $499 Moto Z2 Play is yet another solid modular phone from Motorola. On its own, it offers respectable performance, long battery life, and compatibility with all major US carriers. It pulls ahead of some of the competition when you start snapping on...

Motorola Moto Z2 Play review: thinner, lighter, better


A smaller battery doesn't tarnish the Z2 Play's shine

Slim, light design ; Excellent battery life ; Smart software enhancements

Camera could use optical stabilization ; Fingerprint gestures are clumsy ; Only available unlocked or from Verizon

Still, the Z2 Play provides a great mix of what matters without any unnecessary stuff piled on. And it does so with better battery life than even most flagships can provide. When you think about it, isn’t that all you really want from a phone?

Lenovo Moto Z2 Play Smartphone Review


The slim player. With the Moto Z2 Play, Lenovo refreshes its mid-range smartphone that can be expanded via modules on the rear. The predecessor offered a very good battery life and extremely slim casing. We will check whether the successor has perhaps...

very slim, stylish metal casing ; very rigid and ergonomic ; diverse options via Mods ; easy to use Mods ; good configuration ; pure Android ; relatively accurate GPS ; decent speaker ; clear microphone ; sharp camera photos ; stable viewing angles ;...

12 months warranty only ; slow Wi-Fi ; PWM at low frequency ; heterogeneous screen illumination ; relatively long charging time

Lenovo's Moto Z2 Play is a good smartphone. It would look even better if the Moto Z Play (no longer) existed. The predecessor does many things just as good, some things just a bit worse, and other things even better while being considerably cheaper. We...

Motorola Moto Z2 Play Review


Join us as we take a look at the new Moto Z2 Play, as well as a trio of new Moto Mods.

Attractive, thin design ; Decent battery life ; Motorola's Android UI tweaks work great ; Largely satisfying camera ; Modular hardware is an open door for new features

Display not bright enough, colors not accurate ; Sound quality is not very satisfying ; Recharge times should be faster ; Performance not a huge upgrade over first-gen model ; Moto Mods can add significant cost to ownership

Moto Z2 Play review: Slimmer, minor updates, and a bigger price tag


Our Moto Z2 Play review takes a look at the updated version of the cheaper version and sees if the slimmer design can keep up with the functionality and battery life of the original.

Quality design ; Thinner ; Sleeker looking ; New Moto One Button Nav feature ; Decent camera ; 3.5mm headphone jack ; Front LED flash

Smaller battery than the Moto Z Play ; Not enough of an upgrade over the original Moto Z Play ; Pricey ; Much larger camera hump
