Moto Z3 Play hands-on review

 

A super-thin phone with good battery life? Motorola's Moto Z3 Play might just deliver.

Strong battery life claims ; Speedy performance ; Mostly stock software ; Mods still work ; Super-thin

Big camera bump ; Earpiece is the only speaker ; No headphone jack

Motorola Moto Z3 Play

 

The Motorola Moto Z3 Play keeps the dream of Moto Mods alive, but doesn't deliver any stunning new features.

Works with all existing Moto Mods. Rich AMOLED screen. Elegant software build.

Awkwardly priced. Average processor.

The Moto Z3 Play has plenty going for it, including solid overall performance, a capable camera, and support for Motorola's useful modular backs. Unfortunately, it runs into the same problem as the One Plus 6—the US just doesn't have a market for $500...

Motorola Moto Z3 Play review: the thrill is gone

 

Blue phone blues

Sleek design and premium build quality ; Great software additions ; Works with Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile

Thin design leaves little room for battery or headphone jack ; Fingerprint scanner is awkward to use ; Battery life is below average, adding a mod makes the phone big and unwieldy

The Moto Z3 Play feels like a baseball team slogging through the last couple of months of play, knowing that they need to finish the season but also knowing they won’t end it with a trophy in hand. Motorola committed to supporting the design of its...

This phone's battery life lasts for two days

 

Moto can't fight the OnePlus 6 without slashing this phone's price.

The Moto Z3 Play comes with an extra battery pack that gives it two-day battery life. Its take on Android 8.0 Oreo is a pleasure to use, and the fingerprint sensor on the phone's right side is easy to reach.

It's not water-resistant, and there's no headphone jack. It looks outdated with the mod on and costs about the same as faster phones with better specs.

The Moto Z3 Play's two-day battery life is great, but at its current price, it can't compete with the OnePlus 6.

Motorola Moto Z3 Play Smartphone Review

 

Return of the modular design. Motorola sticks to the modular principle with its Moto Z series and releases the newest generation of the mid-range model in the form of the Moto Z3 Play. Due to the new processor and a dual camera setup, expectations for...

stylish, high-quality case ; good software expansion ; decent GPS accuracy ; expandability via mods ; good AMOLED screen ; no throttling ; decent speaker ; battery mod included

no audio jack ; screen-flickering at low brightness ; high power consumption ; low battery runtimes without mods

There is barely any other manufacturer offering a modular concept similar to Motorola's: LG withdrew from the market for modular smartphones after a single attempt with the LG G5, and the Fairphone 2 is more based on the ability to exchange individual...

moto Z3 Play Prime Exclusive review: An excellent midrange offering with one big gripe

 

I've been using the moto Z3 Play for the past few weeks and this phone has convinced me that the average user really has no need for a flagship smartphone.

Listen, there will always be some people that need flagship phones. But many average users don’t want to spend that much money. This is where the moto Z3 Play fits. It doesn’t have flagship specs but it can easily fill the needs of the average user. It...

Motorola Moto Z3 Play Review

 

This year's Moto Z3 Play is trekking into new territory with its higher price point. Price aside, it's going to take a whole lot for this year's phone to really prove itself in the face of some today's competitively priced flagships...

Camera captures stunning looking photos ; Tons of fun camera modes ; Speedy recharge time ; Premium design

Sluggish performance with graphics processing ; Finger print sensor is constantly being accidentally pressed ; Weak sounding speaker ; $100 increase in price over its predecessor

Moto Z3 Hands-on: A Bargain Flagship with a 5G Future

 

The Moto Z3 looks as though it could be a surprisingly good value for Verizon customers and potentially one day an entry point to 5G — even if it carries last year's processor

Review: Motorola Moto Z3 Play

 

Motorola's third-generation Z Play brings the series up to speed with its competition. This mid-range Android phone switches to a 2:1 screen shape and offers a fingerprint reader and face unlock for security. Pair these with Motorola's wide variety of...

The Motorola Moto Z3 Play is a solid contender in the $500 range. It covers the basics and then some, while offering flexibility thanks to the selection of Moto Mods accessories.

Moto Z3 Play review: Playing it safe but where's the fun? | AndroidPIT

 

Motorola just released the third iteration of the Moto Z Play. As promised, the Moto Z3 Play is the latest generation that's still compatible with Moto Mods. We had the opportunity to test it and here our first impressions!

The Moto Z3 left me with mixed feelings. It’s not a bad smartphone and will meet most of the expectations you’d have for a smartphone in 2018, but this model offers no added value over the competition, except for the Moto Mods. Aesthetically, the phone...
