I switched to Moto Z play from HTC one around 2 months ago.
Marvelous battery with screen on time exceeding 7 hrs..
Performance is superb with the stock Android interface.
Super amolid display is nice.
Moto mods are a plus although I didn't use yet.
Turbocharge is really handy when u are in short of time.
However there are some things that I didn't like
In my opinion Moto Z play cons include:
- Vibration very weak as compared to HTC one (HTC vibration was so strong that I would set my alarm only on vibration and still wake even if z phone is at z end of z room, while in Moto Z play vibration is so weak that u barely feel it event when it's on your pocket).
- Call log lacks lots of functionality of HTC one which is much better.
- Adaptive screen brightness is awful. Causes abrupt change in brightness with slight change in illumination which is really annoying.
The camera is decent.

SushiMan, 19 Sep 2017I purchased one of these phone thinking it looked good and it died after six months of regular... moreSo your Moto Z Play died just from humidity. Extremely sorry to hear about this freak death, pl accept my condolences. Buddy, you are free to troll but use your mind before writing such illogical stuff.
Please tell me yaar galaxy note 4 and moto z play which one is better .i want to buy good camera and good battery and smooth.please suggest me.
I purchased one of these phone thinking it looked good and it died after six months of regular use. I tried to get it repaired under warranty and it came back with a "liquid damage" excuse for no repair. This phone is in no way water proof or water resistant in routine everyday use ... I assume the liquid damage was everyday humidity. Sorry, but I'll never buy Motorola again and I can't recommend this phone to anyone.
Moto Z Play will receive Android 8.0 Oreo Update very soon. This will have added features of increasing speed, longer battery life, smart text selection, customizable notification, split screen, password support and latest Google Play protection for security. No need to purchase latest models, this will compete with the best.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2017how about the quality of the camera? :)Superb in this price range.. can record 4k ,. Selfie flash etc
got one from amazon for ₹20000 ($312). looks like a great deal. looking forward to delivery within a couple of days. excited.
Hmzi, 29 Aug 2017can you please guide me..where its outlet in Lahore?I recently purchased Moto Z play from Home shopping Network online store for 36,499/- Rs.
Also there is another deal in SHop Hive where you can get the Mobile phone with free JBL Sound Boost Mod free, Total price 38,999/- Rs.
In some sites its available with a free Low level Lenovo phone, and price was aound 40K Rs.
Its up to you.
For me, this phone is a must buy, it works like any flagship phone, with Motorola Quality and software optimization. You can't see any difference of performance in this Phone and some other flagship phone. So dont go for Chinese brand phones and go straight to Motorola for full satisfactory performance.
PS. Its my third day of using my Motorola Z Play and still battery remain almost 15%, for moderate use. That impress me the most. For day to day use, this is the best phone. Period.
I bought this phone in Jan 17 from Amazon. I have not faced any problem with the phone so far. With moderate use I charge the phone on alternate days.
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2017I have this same concern. :) anyone who can answer? thanksAm using this device for the last 10 months.. no lag, no restarts,. Good performance , and best battery life ever . 2 weeks ago updated to android 7.1.1
This is really great phone for everyone who wants stock Android experience, with no bloatware, great battery life and more than enough performance to deal with everyday browsing, mails, social network and mobile gaming. All do great and battery life easily lasts me up to 3 days, I usually charge it after 2 days when I am at about 50% battery.
azanraza, 10 Aug 2017So here is the thing i am from Pakistan and i want to buy z play now the problem is that there... moreThis is available in official warranty in Pakistan. You can buy it with confidence from any good retailer. So you will have no confusion after buying in official warranty. Moreover there is a promo going on in Pakistan, in which you'll also get a brand new Lenovo phone worth 10k if you buy this phone. It costs around 45k in official warranty.
