Moto Z3 review: When novel ideas get old


At the risk of sounding reductive, the Moto Z3 is last year's flagship Moto phone packed into a cheaper body with a bigger screen. That's not necessarily a bad thing: Its Snapdragon 835 chipset keeps things moving at a respectable pace and Motorola's...

Thoughtful software features ; Solid performance ; Pleasant screen

No ShatterShield or IP-rated water resistance ; Annoying fingerprint sensor placement ; It’s exclusive to Verizon ; The best feature isn’t available yet

Moto Z3 review


Great performance ; Good display ; Day-long battery life ; Capable camera, no shutter lag ; Promise of 5G

Thick camera bump, uninspiring design ; Unavailable to non-Verizon customers ; Poor low-light camera

The Moto Z3 brings strong performance, an all-day battery, and an affordable price tag. The potential of 5G aside, it’s the best option for Verizon subscribers looking for a sub-$500 phone.

Motorola Moto Z3


The Motorola Moto Z3 is the "first 5G phone," in that it will have an optional add-on for Verizon's 5G network next year. Until then, it stands on its own merits as a solid phone and a good way to try out Moto Mods.

Slim. Extensible with Moto Mods. Solid overall performance.

Dated processor. Below average low-light camera. Some carrier bloatware. Promised Mods are slow to appear.

The Moto Z3 Play isn't a flagship phone. With last year's processor, a 1080p screen, and an average camera, it can't compete with the latest and greatest like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or the OnePlus 6. Fortunately for Motorola, it's not meant to. The...

Motorola Moto Z3 review: identity crisis


A low price is the Z3's saving grace

Big, vibrant display ; Fast performance ; Very appealing price

Awkward, unergonomic design ; Average camera and battery life ; 5G promise requires a leap of faith ; Exclusive to a single carrier

Big screen, old parts, and a far-off promise of 5G

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G


The Moto Z3 is a curious device, mostly because its reason for existing hasn't been released yet. The Z3 will one day be compatible with the admittedly impressive 5G Moto Mod, a detachable accessory that's the product of a team up between Verizon,...

Great hardware and value for the price ; Looks sleek and feels good in the hand ; Will be 5G compatible (someday)

The 5G Moto Mod - the real star of the show - isn't out until 2019 ; A little too similar to the Moto Z3 Play ; No headphone jack

moto Z3 Verizon review: A slightly better Z3 Play for Big Red


Motorola is by far one of the best Android OEMs on the market and their fantastic Z3 Play jumps to to Verizon in the form of the moto Z3.

This is the same basic Z3 design but still nice ; Really nice build quality and materials ; AMOLED display is still killer ; Performance is even better than the Z3 Play ; Moto gestures are still great ; Battery life is amazing ; Android runs great here...

Left mounted power button ; Camera could be better ; Single speaker ; No headphone jack (for those who care) ; Glass design could lead to breaks without protection ; No OIS

The Z3 Verizon is another very solid mid-tier phone from Motorola that is really challenging the idea that everyone needs a flagship phone. The power button placement is irritating and the camera could be a bit better but for the price you get good...

Moto Z3 Review


Under the hood of the Moto Z3 ticks the Snapdragon 835 chip from 2017. So is a Moto Z3 worth getting? Sure it is, but probably not for the reasons you might expect.

Camera that produces solid results ; Unique, good looks ; Good battery life ; Moto Mods!

Verizon exclusive ; Only “splash-proof” ; Jumpy stabilization in videos

Motorola Moto Z3 review: Don't buy this phone for its 5G promise Review | ZDNet


Motorola's latest smartphone has a lot of futuristic hype to live up to.

Affordable price point ; Smooth performance ; Battery life

This design is a getting a little old ; 5G is several months away

Moto Z3 Review: A 5G-Ready Phone with a Foot in the Past


Motorola has put together a solid budget flagship in the Moto Z3, even in spite of its modest specs and familiar design. At $480, the Z3 is a pretty good choice for users who don't want to spend top dollar on the best wares from Apple, Samsung and...

Good performance for the money ; Nice OLED display ; Compatible with all Moto Mods

5G mod is still months away ; Recycled, less-durable design ; Below-average battery life ; Mediocre cameras ; Verizon exclusive

Motorola's latest modular flagship may one day take us to an exciting 5G future, but it's an old soul at heart.
