I have to buy a phone and I'm confused at to which is better. The Moto Z2 Force or the G5s plus. They both have great reviews. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Jijesh Kumar, 30 Jul 2017See the battery... only 2730mAh..??? so pathetic...!!!I thought that too.
Truth is, it's so much more efficient I get 5 1/2 hrs SoT with 21% battery left when playing CPU/GPS intensive games like PoGo or Ingress.
In my book, that's astounding! I thought I'd be buying the TurboCharging mod within a week!
Like cameras, it's not just about the numbers.
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2017Can someone enlighten me? I'm looking for a new phone. And I can't make the decission. Below i... moreMust have
- At least 4 GB Ram, prefer 6GB -XT1789-06 has 6Gb. Pixel/S8 doesn't.
- At least 64 GB internal memory -XT1789-06 has 64Gb. Pixel/S8 does.
- Micro SD slot -Moto Z2 Force does. S8 does, Pixel doesn't.
- Snapdragon 835 ,Exynos 8895 or any up coming/current hi-end chipset -Moto Z2 Force does -835 chipset Pixel/S8 does.
- Minimum 5 inches display and minimum 1080p resolution -Moto Z2 Force. Pixel/S8 does.
- Somewhat durable -Moto Z2 Force has has the ace here with Shattershield. Unless you want it waterproof. Pixel/S8 waterproof.
- Front facing stereo speaker -Not in Moto Z2 Force.
- Any fast charging technology -Moto Z2 Force does. Pixel/S8 does
- Can be updated to Android O -Moto Z2 Force does (mine even has already). Pixel/S8 does.
- Ability to flash custom rom -Moto Z2 Force does (I believe). Not sure about Pixel (why would you want to)/S8
Good to have
- Wireless charging -Moto Z2 Force does - add (an overpriced imo) back cover mod. S8 does, Pixel doesn't.
- Decent camera -Moto Z2 Force does. Impressed with it, but it's not a Pixel. Pixel/S8 does
- AMOLED display -Moto Z2 Force does. Pixel/S8 does
I have the Z2 Force and I love it. Same kind of specs as the Galaxy Note 8 without the Samsungware.
I have this phone. I love it. I had a Moto X Force before and the screen got scratched, even dented, but never smashed. So far, I'm being better at looking after my Z2 Force!
Scratching the screen is definitely possible, but far less easy to do than the X Force. If you are worried about that, get a screen protector.
The biggest surprise for me was the one button nav feature where you get your screen back and use the F/P reader to mimic the Back/Menu/Home/Google Assistant buttons and the on screen buttons are gone.
Other than that, the other Moto Functions (like "Twist for Quick Capture" - so good, the Pixel has it now and "Approach for Moto Display" and the others) are all still there.
It's narrower than the X Force so easier to use 1 handed.
Battery performance is fantastic. 5 1/2 hours of Ingress SoT with 21% remaining still, so despite it being a smaller battery than I'd like, it's exceeding my expectations. You guys should use Pokemon Go as a battery test!
Moto Mods are absolutely flawless in their implementation.
It also benchmarks very very well (I have the XT1789-06 6Gb RAM/64Gb internal version).
On top of all of that, it just got Oreo.
The camera is better than any Moto I've used before it and is definitely very usable, where before it has been quite hit and miss for quality. At the end of the day, it's not as good as the Pixel camera though.
Very very happy with it. Just a shame it's so hard to buy (it's not available in Australia in any form). There should be more marketing for this thing. It's fantastic.
Mr. Bentley, 05 Jan 2018Not a bad phone at all. My major issue with this phone is the screen. It scratches up too easy... moreYes, the screen is what stoped me fron getting one, it scratches due to being shatter resistant, it is not cristal as other ones, so, no shatter-easy to scratch, scratch resistant-shatter prone

Anonymous, 28 Aug 20171 - XZ Premium 2 - HTC U11 3 - Z2 Force --- Avoid Samsung.I think Xiaomi 6 and Oneplus 5 good for custom rom
Bring this state the art of engineering world wide please, lenovo marketing real bad, motorola seen a lot in hands of engineer & IT but the sales not doing well
I got this phone and its a really good phone, I just got the Moto mod projector, and I must say, I'm glad I did, the picture is clear, and bright, down side the battery of the projector mod is not that great
Your only other option would be doing online shopping, like eBay. If you don't like online shopping, then you're out of luck unless someone actually has this model and is willing to sell it to you or something
I'm in the U.S. and I'm looking for the 6GB/128GB storage version of this that is compatible with T-Mobile. Can someone help me?
Not a bad phone at all. My major issue with this phone is the screen. It scratches up too easy no matter how careful you are with it. Unfortunately, I'm not really a fan of screen protector or phone case. I like to just savour the beauty of a device without having to hide it under a case or screen protector. I hope Motorola will fix this issue in time because of peeps like me or consider including a screen protector in the box. Asides that, it's a solid phone, very fluid, doesn't hang at all, the moto display is cool but not perfect because it often comes up by itself. The camera is good too but definitely not a competition for Samsung galaxy S8+. The apps for the depth enabled pictures still need a lot of work. The mods too, I'm not sure if they are available for sale in my country (Nigeria). Lastly, when is the device getting Android O update?
Excellent experience. No hangs. Beautiful camera and perfect slow motion mode

Motorola phones are superb, they are faster and has strong battery life. If it is not Motorola then forget it.
