I think the moto z play(upcoming phone in rumours) will be the most sold smartphone in the series as according to rumours it has 3.5mm Jack too with same thickness and same amount of battery as z force(the shattersheild display must have had good thickness) this phone is actually very good. The intermediate moto z is a waste(its camera and g4 plus camera have same score)
Yes the lack of headphone jack is a bummer, but considering the fact MOTO Z sets a standard for accessories to not just dress up your phone is a pretty big deal, bye bye shady battery packs from a sweatshop.
Also for those worried about waterproof, it's water repellent. Just look on YouTube "Moto G water test" you'll see how it survives the water tests like a champ. Why do you want the IP67? To go inside the swimming pool and take pictures? If you get a bad unit you can mess up your phone and it won't be covered by warranty (many did) .
All Motorola devices are water repellent, nothing will happen to it even if you drop it in the toilet.

The adapter is included for those who still want to use their old set of headphones. It's the best idea they could come up with. As for the usb type c port, I'm not a big fan either. But things are changing, evolution runs his course. I'm sure, in a few years they will come up with something else, a new port to justify the high price of the phone
Praleq, 14 Aug 2016You won't buy it anyway. Go back to your Samsung toy. The fear of change says a lot about you! It seems you are somehow confused i don't own a samsung phone. Change should be positive not negative. Honestly i don't see the logic of removing the 3.5mm jack and then give an adapter to convert back to a 3.5mm jack. This can not be called positive change.

Motorola has changed its design every generation. So not really a boring design but an aggressive one. The only reason Moto sales are low is because of marketing. The same goes for HTC and Sony.

The mods are definitely part of what makes this phone great, over and above the balance of phone features, since there will be more interesting mods coming. Don't know why you think they're not practical outside. Maybe you live in the Arctic, LOL.

A smartphone without 3.5mm jack is not practical. I find it strange that most people don't see an issue with its absence.
It seems something crucial is always missing from Motorola phones. This year it is almost perfect, no 3.5mm jack sorry no buy.
The review was stellar, detailed to the point and important for those with lots of tech background and those of us with less that cutting edge understanding. I am looking at the phone but I see they have not put the 64gb one out for sale so far. Not sure if it is better to just buy a card or wait for the newer phone to come out. Who does not waterproof a phone now? Really need to make a complete phone package for active people. Thanks for a great in depth review

Note7 is only for the person seeking the S-Pen. This however is for the one looking for the best phone in the market, add the MotoMods and this phone is meant to be kept for two-three years.
