Yeah, price mistake. In a few days, $720 will be a price mistake as well and the "actual" price is $600. Lenovo and Moto are scammers. I won't buy their phones especially when they shrink battery to push you to spend extra $80 getting battery mod
In India, this is rumored to be sold at 39000 (612$), if I recall correctly from a previous leak. This is way way less than the ridiculously priced S8, which goes for Rs 57900 (906$). And looks much better too, imo. I prefer a sleek metal tool to a fat glass toy. The camera will be better in daylight because it won't have traditional Samsung oversharpening nonsense, and probably as good or almost as good in low light.
Lenovo is dreaming with that price. They need to realize they don't have the clout of Apple or Samsung to price their product line in such a manner. Basically, the device is obviously OK in some aspects, like screen, CPU and mods. Some may desire the thinness over battery. But, the rest of the specs do not justify the $720 U.S. price, IMO.
Perhaps if they brought the prices of their entire product line down they'd sell more devices and make more money. Or, some "marketing genius" with a bunch of stats and a spreadsheet at Lenovo has deemed their phone line pricing scheme is optimal. If so, I wonder if said genius forgot to factor in the brand recognition, trust and carrier availability (at least in the U.S.).
But, they pop the $720 U.S. price out their so they don't undercut their lesser devices.
Look for this device to be discounted to $499 U.S. at Amazon, etc. in about 6 months, which is what happened to the Moto Z. Current pricing of the now one-year-old Moto Z shows the large markup of their device offerings when first marketed as the Moto Z is/was $699 U.S. retail.
Looks like e failure to me, they not going to sell many, competition it just has to offer much better things
2730 mah battery no thanks even if motorola is trying to push moto mods still it is insane decision to cut on battery why the hell someone spend 700$ on a phone with this meager battery then again spend on moto mods to improve battery and yes using moto mods will make this phone uglier
just like last year
can't wait for 2nd hand z2 force for 500$
hated how fat and heavy the original was
now it's slim and light and back in the business!
the cameras performance will be amazing I bet you
as the performance
last year's force had the highest benchmarks even compared to exynos powered s7edge
except similar insane performance from the z2 force as well
Nice price for phone with good quality and many function. Even $800 still worthy
Oft times, within these confines, commentators call the battery capacity of this unit small. Admittedly, in an age where consumers top priority is typically battery life longevity, Lenovo's chosen battery size for this model is curious. I hope they make a Moto Mod with stellar audio prowess available (if they bring out any Mods at all... I have no idea).
