I using it since a month... & its power-beast! And if you want speed, just go to build number, tap 6-7 times to enable dev-option & scroll for "Animation" setting, by default its "1 X"; change it to 0.5 X... & check the improvement!
Anonymous, 26 Dec 2016156.4mm? They have created a monster.Big bezels and dimensions for such a small screen. My Nexus 6 from stone age: 159.3 x 83 x 10.1 mm (6.27 x 3.27 x 0.40 in) and it at least has a 6" post-stamp size of a screen.
Uberano, 26 Dec 2016I would like to see some numbers on that if that's possible.Me too, I am looking at the results and between the scores in hours we know, talk time, web browsing and video playback and the end result, if we extrapolate, shows that the "super power efficient" Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset in the standby test, the one we can not see, the Moto Z Play is one of the worst phone we have seen in the, top 30? Those results are more for an average, good, battery phone, not for one of the kings in 2016. I repeat myself, something is wrong with this test, the extrapolation of the data and the info about the SD 625 does not compute. Can someone, please, do the test again or show the standby results. Was something on-off with the phone gsmarena tested? I am not kidding if I expected 120 hours so 100 are a very good result for a phone but disappointing for the Moto Z Play. Thanks
hehe xd, 25 Dec 2016stand by time , the c7 loses mutch less batery on standby than the moto z play I would like to see some numbers on that if that's possible.
Yes, the review is a bit off, for what it should be, but perhaps the reviewer has some personal issue with it. I've used it since it came out and most of the time it was an awesome experience. The only visible downside for me at the moment, is that sometimes AF on the camera cannot lock on. Other than that it's all great. A lot of people complain about performance (due to the mid specs), but I'm happy with it. The phone is snappy, looks great and the biggest of all the pros - battery life. I was stunned clocking 3-4 days on one charge. I'll take that over slightly faster performance all day, every day!
Dasman, 26 Dec 2016Bigger camera sensor, I would say!Sadly, OP3 pictures are sharper, especially in good lighting.

If u hear something nice, u will praise moto and something bad, then lenovo!
This mods concept was an failure attempt from Lenovo. They tried this Vibe X2 and failed like LG G5.
Motorola only knows to make bricks.
I am just shocked that the gsmarena battery test gives only 100 h to the Moto Z Play when i have read a lot of reviews where they talk about the great, superb and amazing battery. Can someone explain to me how Samsung Galaxy C7 and the Moto Z Play obtain the same hours when the Moto wins in every test by a large margin? Moto wins by 5 hours in talk time, by 1 hour in web browsing and by 3 fricking hours in the video test and they have the same result in hours, 100. Something is wrong with the test. Thanks
Camera actually isn't that bad when I used the studio comparison chart. Z Play is so less grainy than OnePlus 3T.

btw I did not express myself good
What I said is OP3 is better than Play
Moto Z is on par with OP3
Z force is better than both Op3 and op3t
But I would go all Motorola because OP3 is chinese designed afterall
Aloof, 25 Dec 2016Can't you change animation speed in developer's options?Yes always, I mean, their marketing side of things.
They should've done by default

Dude, better battery life, expandablility, and availability are decisive factors for people in general so we'd give credit to Moto Z Play.
Don't get me wrong I prefer OP3T becauae I'm leaning to milli-second faster device, but its advantage is disappointingly marginal from what I've seen in videos..
TC for Life, 25 Dec 2016And Lenovo is destroying Motorola, isn't it? People complaining about Lenovo destroying Motoro... moreThe Moto Z and Z Play were probably already in Motorola's pipeline before Lenovo. You don't just come up with a new phone design overnight, usually it takes a couple of years.
If you want to see what Motorola will become under Lenovo, look no further than the Moto M and the rumored upcoming Moto X. They all look like a generic Chinese phone. Lenovo doesn't even continue the Moto mods. This year's Motorola Lineup (Z, Z play, G4, G4 Plus) are probably the last lineup from the old Motorola.
