I think the design is considered in favored for thier motomods enhancement......???????
Shekh, 26 Jul 2016thickness disappointed me. Z is 5.5mm and force iz 7mm. Force should me 5.5mm. really mood off. Its thicker due to obvious changes that result in nearly 99.999% increase in thickness. The main issue would be the battery being 900 mAh larger. your looking at 2600 to 3500 mAh batteries. that alone will cause thickness. Ill take the thicker version in a heart beat because after a week of use you will never be able to tell unless you play with each one. Larger battery, shatter proof screen and better camera....yea ill settle for the slightly larger thickness as im always on my phone and these are clearly appealing features.

ICE, 21 Jul 2016Easy, Sony also makes phones with ugly chins....Well, unlike Apple they at least make the side bezels smaller. But, I still wouldn't buy a phone from any company that hasn't changed their designs since 2007. Either way, I hope this is a one-time thing for Motorola and someone gets fired, because it's a ridiculous design choice.
exclusive is st...d idea
Im waiting to buy unlocked international version of "Z FORCE"

And since it has Moto Pure (An almost stock Android version, thanks to the fact Motorola was once a Google company before the G2) we can have a bloatware-free (except some, like Moto Alert, but they are not like Samsung's bloatware we find such as S planner, Internet...) for a lower price than the S7-Note7-iPhone 7.

I look at these specs and I see that the Force variant is not only shatterproof, but has a better camera and battery. If the design was just a bit improved, that would definitely be a strong competitor of both S7 and 6S. I am just worried about 4G bands in Canada.
Otherwise the Moto Mods is actually a great idea! I hope that there will be a Mod that will allow external enhanced camera, add RAM and additional SoC so that this phone can be Future-Proof.
Banutu, 19 Jul 20168 mm but with 3.5 mm jack and 4000mah battery would've done better The reason they didn't wanna increase thickness is that they want you to use moto mods, if phone is too thick then nobody will buy motomods , I wish they also make or have at least available by third party moto mod with support of audio jack and hifi audio
I guess GSM arena didn't want to approve my post, so I registered to let everyone know. The Z Force does NOT have Gorilla Glass 4. It has Motorola's ShatterShield tech. Here's a link to Motorola's website. Quit blocking my posts and just acknowledge you got it wrong. Shesh.
The regular Moto Z DOES have the Gorilla Glass.
i wanted to purchase this smartphone please inform me sir when it hits indian market and also its price
