Bottom Line

Despite its shortcomings, the Moto Z is a decent, up-to-date smartphone with a feature set that is destined to please even the most hard-headed Android enthusiast.

The Motorola Moto Z is a 5.5-inch Android smartphone that was released in September, 2016. It has continued to enjoy positive reviews for its good build quality, ultra-thin design, large and sharp display, proper audio quality and commendable performance. Users have also expressed overwhelming love for the camera’s efforts especially in well-lit situations. On the other hand, critics have not failed to express their disappointment regarding the 2600mAh battery, which drains rapidly, even while on standby. Thankfully, TurboPower Charging is available through an included USB Type-C wall charger. The Moto Z is a proper device for the tech lovers, that comes with everything new in the Android world, and then some.

    At one point, it appeared as if modular smartphones were going to be all the rage. While they perhaps haven’t become as prevalent as many had expected (RIP Project Ara), it hasn’t stopped phones such as the LG G5 having a go at optional add-ons, with the forthcoming Lenovo smartphones pulling the same trick too.
