Moto Z Play review: Playmodo

 

Few names in the fast-paced mobile industry can boast such a long-standing and universal brand recognition such as the legendary Motorola. Even now, after the glory GSM age is long gone, and the brand is under Lenovo leadership, the Moto badge still...

Moto Z Play

 

Motorola's flagship Moto Z is in real danger of being shaded by its cheaper brother, the Z Play. The Lenovo-owned brand has taken what should have been a boring mid-range phone and turned it into one of the standout handsets of 2016.

Moto Z Play review: the best battery life of any smartphone today

 

The Moto Z Play from Lenovo has the best battery life of any smartphone I've ever used. It's so good and so superior to the competition that this — the third member of the Moto Z family — just...

Amazing battery life ; Nice display ; Fast everyday performance

Weak camera ; Design can feel unwieldy ; Good luck with software updates

Motorola's Moto Z Play has a beast of a battery (review)

 

Look at the Motorola Moto Z Play for its extra-long-lasting battery as much as its swappable snap-on accessories and affordable price.

The affordable Moto Z Play works with swappable modular accessories, retains its headphone jack (unlike the more upmarket Moto Z and Z Force) and has a battery that goes on and on.

The Z Play is the thickest and heaviest phone in the Moto Z series and its fingerprint sensor, annoyingly, can be mistaken for a home button.

Even if you don't give two licks about its cool modular capabilities, get the Motorola Moto Z for an affordable phone with an impressively enduring battery life.

Motorola Moto Z Play review: Unbeatable battery life bettered by Mods

 

It's big, fast, and lasts a full day without breaking a sweat.

Really great battery life ; Stock Android experience ; Mods hold heaps of potential

Questionable button and square-feeling design choices

It's big, fast, and lasts a full day without even breaking a sweat, which makes the Moto Z Play one of the best options for people wanting a phone with seemingly never-ending battery life. The Incipio Mod attachment takes battery to the next

Motorola Moto Z Play review

 

Tired of your phone dying at 7pm?

Fantastic battery life ; Quirky Mods system ; Solid screen

Outclassed and out specced by OnePlus 3 ; Camera focus is unreliable

Class-leading battery life makes this quirky modular phone far more practical than your might expect.

Moto Z Play review

 

The longer-lasting modular phone with a headphone jack

Cheapest Moto Z phone yet ; Works with all MotoMods ; Includes a 3.5mm headphone jack

Not a flagship performer ; Thicker, even without accessories ; Camera won't impress you

The Moto Z Play is meant to play, as is made clear by its headphone jack and long-lasting battery – and everyone is invited thanks to its cheaper price. Just don't expect stellar performance from the chipset or camera on this thicker Moto Z variant.

Lenovo Moto Z Play Smartphone Review

 

The superior Z? As the cheaper sibling of the Moto Z flagship smartphone, the Moto Z Play can also be expanded via Moto Mods. As well as a larger battery, it is also equipped with a higher resolution primary camera at a much lower price. Our test...

solid, high-quality build casing, expandable via Moto Mods, no bloatware preloaded, fast USB Type-C port, micro-SD card can be used as internal storage, good phone features, accurate touchscreen, high-contrast AMOLED panel, reliable fingerprint...

primary camera's unreliable autofocus, no Miracast support, screen with PWM flickering, headset not included, non-removable battery

As with the Moto Z, one of the main features of the Moto Z Play is its expandability via Moto Mods. According to Lenovo, these modules will be supported for at least three device generations. However, buyers have to dig deeper into their pockets first....

Moto Mods ; Dependable easy-to-use camera ; Excellent battery life

Limited performance ; Chunky design

The Moto Z Play is a great affordable mid-range mobile which boasts particularly strong battery life, plus strong media chops and the unique Moto Mods expandability. Of course, Moto Mods are still far from an essential feature, and we’re yet to see if...
