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 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

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

 

It's getting 5G with a Moto Mod, but should you buy it today?

Great screen, sleek build, solid power ; Very good camera for a mid-ranger ; Ready for the 5G Mod

Uses year-old flagship tech ; Still no essential Moto Mods today ; The 5G Mod isn't out until 2019

There are more compelling ~$500 handsets today, but the Moto Z3 is a very good phone that could become fantastic with the 5G Moto Mod

Moto Z3 5G review

 

The solid budget – and so far only – 5G option

Significant price drop since launch ; Mods are intriguing if limited-utility ; Cheaper 5G option than flagships

Dated specs and design ; Cost of MotoMods adds up

The Moto Z3 won't turn heads with its simple design and lack of flagship features, but it's a surprisingly powerful phone at a bargain price. Which would be enough to recommend the phone – but it's also Verizon's secret weapon to get folks in the 5G...

Motorola Moto Z3 announced: Specs, price and UK release date rumours

 

Motorola's third-gen flagship has just been announced – here's everything you need to know about the new Moto Z3

Of course, these similarities are necessary to ensure cross-compatibility with the Moto Mods. Still, it would’ve been nice to have had a bit of a flourish so we could tell the two apart.

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

Review: Motorola Moto Z3 for Verizon Wireless

 

The Moto Z3 is the first 5G-upgradable phone thanks to a forthcoming Mod from Motorola and Verizon. This mid-range device sports a 2:1 screen, metal-and-glass design, and compatibility with Motorola's ecosystem of swappable modules. It is good enough...

The Motorola Moto Z3 for Verizon Wireless 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.
