Great phone. Saw video and beat s8 on almost every speed comparison. Very well built. Half the people I know break their screen in 2 years. Shatter proof is great. . Just put on a $6 tempered glass and dont worry about it. Wish the battery was bigger, but battery mod is great and easier to replace than replacing non removable battery. Battery easy lasts all day. Bet any of you Samsung lovers that in2 years I will not have cracked screen and battery life will better.
I bought this phone because locations of buttons are perfect. I had Droid 2 and complained about location of button nearby center before. They listened my opinion or not but Motrola is the only one company who makes phones with decent location of button. I think all the reviews should consider it. For instance, Samsung is amazingly bad. We can't put the phone on any brackets because it has buttons on both side.
So far I like this phone. Any battery gets bad over time so I will purchase external battery in the future anyway so I do not worry about battery being small.
I just received my Moto z2 force and I want to give my honest opinion on the phone itself after a day of usage.
1. Battery life is above average
I received the phone on a full charge, so once I left my house at 10am to start my day, I used my phone like my others. I am a somewhat heavy user, with Instagram, Snapchat (you know how much battery that drains), and Slither.io, along with a few other non-intensive apps. I also listened to some music and used Google. Once I arrived home around 9pm, my phone had 21%. I know, battery will degrade over time but it most likely won't on a huge margin. So far, this phone lasts longer than my previous ZTE zmax pro which had a 6" 1080p lcd screen, Snapdragon 617, and 3400map battery.
2. Shattershield is superb!
I mean, it straches easier than other phones as I already have a permanent one in just a day, but I have peace of mind that my phone won't break anymore. This was my main reason for buying this phone (when you have broken 7 phones in 2 years, you know you have a problem). So far, loving it, and I'll love it even more once I get a screen protector.
3. Overall specs are amazing!
That's no surprise due to the Snapdragon 835, dual 12mp camera, and amazing OS, with Moto add-ons (Moto display is a livesaver!). Nothing bad to say in this part.
4. Headphone jack removal
I don't listen to music quite often, and if I do, I already have a pair of Bluetooth earbuds so I can't argue much in this part.
5. Jelly-effect scrolling
I'm not sure if I have bad eyes or not but I don't notice anything like that when scrolling through Twitter or Instagram or anything. Screen is perfectly fine, but hey, it could happen to another person.
I love this phone! Shattershield display, battery life, stellar performance, it's all great! I'm not really into motomods, but the free projector changed my mind and I'm glad that I'm getting it next month. Overall, a great flagship, and if you're looking for a neat flagship, definitely take a look at this choice
Can someone enlighten me? I'm looking for a new phone. And I can't make the decission. Below is my criteria
- At least 4 GB Ram, prefer 6GB
- At least 64 GB internal memory
- Micro SD slot
- Snapdragon 835 ,Exynos 8895 or any up coming/current hi-end chipset
- Minimum 5 inches display and minimum 1080p resolution
- Somewhat durable
- Front facing stereo speaker
- Any fast charging technology
- Can be updated to Android O
- Ability to flash custom rom
Good to have
- Wireless charging
- Decent camera
- AMOLED display
I'm very interested in this phone especially the Moto Mod QWERTY mod and GoogleÂ’s A/B partitioning. Should I go for this phone or S8+, U11, XZ premium, XL or wait for Note8, V30, Pixel 2. Thanks
Overall is great...but why the battery is only 2730 MAH..?!! This is gonna be the greatest motorola phone on this year if they upgrade this thing. Hopefully they gonna fixed it.
Treppy, 11 Aug 2017Upgraded to this phone today (from a Droid Turbo 2). Disappointed that this phone doesn't have... moreI was too quick to bash this phone for not having wireless charging...supposedly you can purchase a moto style shell with wireless charging for an extra $40.00
Come on!!! Again, this phone retails for over $700.00, and I need to spend another $40.00 just so my old Verizon wireless charger can be useful again? Sad!
Upgraded to this phone today (from a Droid Turbo 2). Disappointed that this phone doesn't have wireless charging like my old Turbo 2 did. I don't understand how Motorola's "flagship" phone that retails for over $700 USD does not have wireless charging. I could care less about the damn mods.
Stickypurplecat, 07 Aug 2017I've been very happy with my Z Force, and was looking into possibly pre-ordering the new versi... moreThe dual pixels will make up for the 21 mp vs 12. Keep in mind the phone is using 2 back cameras at 12 mp a piece. And the battery life may be smaller, but that won't keep it from lasting all day. The phone hasn't been officially released for sales so we can't accurately tell anything yet. iPhone batteries have less than 3000 mAh as it is, and out the box the battery life is great. From a retail sales point of view, this phone is a great addition to the smart phones we are offered. Some people would find this phone more useful with the mods it provides than maybe the GS8, iPhone, V20, or OnePlus 5. It may not be tailored to you, but we can't make opinions until you have seen the proof or the reasoning behind why they made things that way. Manufacturers are trying to make money, not lose money like the Note 7.
well it's official lenovo wants to kill motorolla of ...with these mediocre single speaker products ...2700 battery 5.5 1440 screen, will make for a shitty battery life congrats lenovo.
Mr. Electronics, 29 Jul 2017Can anyone please tell me what a SW update is, and how it updates a phone to Bluetooth 5.0 Lenovo has went on record on the official Motorola website and stated that Android O will we available in November for many of it's model's which it lists.
In retrospect, I very well have been wrong in making fun of this model. It may end up surprising. It could stand Dolby Vision and/or HDR 10 support, not to mention HI RES audio, but, hopefully the Z3 or Z4 will bring those features to the table.
Stickypurplecat, 07 Aug 2017I've been very happy with my Z Force, and was looking into possibly pre-ordering the new versi... moreActually the camera quality is better on this phone than the z force. They added dual pixels and a lower apeature so you can take better low light photos

I've been very happy with my Z Force, and was looking into possibly pre-ordering the new version, but this seems to be a downgrade!
12MP camera instead of 21? 2730 mAh battery instead of 3500? I've already got the mods, and I already use them. Trying to foist them on me by crippling the phone to the point of where they're a necessity, instead of a supplement, is cutting off the nose to spite the face!
The only real improvements are dual-SIM slots and the CPU, but they've cut corners on the two features people will be most likely to notice: battery capacity and camera quality. The phone is significantly lighter as a result, but I'm also significantly less likely to ever consider buying it as a result.
Quite disappointed with the battery. How is it going to last a day of use if the battery is smaller than my XPERIA XZ with 2900mah? With a QHD?! I have no idea what are they doing...unless they have some good battery tech that can make it last a day or more
