Vegetaholic, 30 Jul 2017Unfortunately it will not competition less, nothing special same as first gen Z, I don't think... morePS
But yes, it sure is a bummer that they 'forgot' the 3.5mm jack.
At the least they could have put TWO usb-C plugs, so you do not need to carry a split cable.
...It is the sad story of aPples laptop with one port al over again...
Vegetaholic, 30 Jul 2017Unfortunately it will not competition less, nothing special same as first gen Z, I don't think... moreIt sure is a niche product. Not a main-stream flagship.
The whole point of the Z-series is the modular approach, that gives you a somewhat minimalistic base device, that you can extend for the occasion. The key word is VERSATILITY.
It is for the users that usually is not far from a power plug, and prefers a slim device (say to slip into dinner jacket). Want to go for a hike? Attach an extra battery and perhaps slip an extra in the luggage. Want to game? Attach the gaming mod. Want to text a lot? Attach the QWERTY-mod (on Indiegogo), et cetera. Not a general purpose device in it self, but can be extended for the task. Of course you must know what mods you are going to need before you leave your car/home where you keep your mods for this to work.
Unfortunately it will not competition less, nothing special same as first gen Z, I don't think so it will sell Well, Considering battery life will be worse, and 3.5 is gone. LG G5 fail and this one will pass? I don't think so
Eske Rahn, 26 Jul 2017Indeed, Slimmer bezels WILL make the phone more fragile... (or at the least the display)
Wh... moreYup, all I want to say is that smartphone is an object we use every day
It would be nice if they (OEM) gave priority for ergonomic rather than it looks but not ergonomic

Caps - is Op5's haters emotions, if you cant notice that.
Honestly, both meizu and moto is just not worth it, there is many good smartphones for 500$(S7/Edge) or even lower(honor 9) that is much better.
What about moto g5 S plus? Do anyone know about the release day of this? Thank you!

I don't know where I even mentioned that OP5 copied iPhone design that you started pmsing. And no, you can call OP5 flagship and better and whatever you want but it can't be compared with the real flagships. On the other hand, Moto Z2 is a flagship but not a good one for 2017.
im lucky enough that I purchased the moto z 1st gen, not wort for the wait.
Good specs. And I'd buy the Gamepad Motomod only because it adds a 3.5mm jack.
iHunter, 26 Jul 2017I think it's safe to say we were all expecting a little better from Moto! This thing doesn't e... moreZ2f is not a flagship either, it is just got a flagship price and soc and thats all. Op5 is way better cause of good battery life, 3.5 and way lower price. BUT IT COPIES IPHONE DESIGN SO ITS NOT FLAGSHIP ANYMORE. Stupid people...
I think it's safe to say we were all expecting a little better from Moto! This thing doesn't even compare to current flagships from competitors, such as the Galaxy S8 and HTC U11. And since now there is a 128GB storage and 6GB RAM variant available for the HTC U11 in USA, more people would be buying that instead. Yes the OP5 has even more RAM, but let's be real, the OP5 is not a flagship! But yeah, sorry Moto.
Momo Simon, 26 Jul 2017Make sense. Slimmer bezel will make phone more fragille(?) Indeed, Slimmer bezels WILL make the phone more fragile... (or at the least the display)
When you drop a device it is most likely to hit the ground at a corner or edge, and the smaller the bezels, the more of the impact goes to the display.
And unfortunately there are currently a trade off that a transparent material can not be both elastic and hard, so it can not at the same time be hard to scratch and hard to break...
This is why it is a good idea with a screen that is hard to break (but 'soft') and an added thin cheap (a few £) tempered glass protector, that takes the scratches, and is easily replaceable WHEN it breaks.
Suddenly everyone wants a bezelless smartphone since xiaomi, lg and Samsung did it. I would rather have a super sleek metal smartphone to a smudge-fest phone that is almost all screen and fragile glass.
Nice phone for the price too bad they cant change the design cause it will losse support for last years mods and I didnt know bluetooth can be updated with OTA
Motorola should focus on design.coz design value for smartphon like a man head follow samsung s8 and motorola should increas ability of his smartphon..now this z2 force design is look like old lady motorola should have to change his design please we request you and i am fan of motorola so do something better
