It's a Real Beast! One of the best phone Motorola has ever made.
The performance is phenomenal and camera is superb even in low light.
Best phone ever... It totally surprised me with its long lasting battery life, screen... As a parent of 2, of course I can say it's shattered proof, dust proof.. Water resistant.. Only thing that's annoying is lag in some software sync.. Like in camera, sometimes it's kept on prompting to. Restart the camera as in restarting the phone.... Except. That it's totally. Awesome battery, nice big screen with amoled display... Loud speakers..... Love it... Keep Up good work Lenovo....

This Moto play is my first expensive phone I have purchased, ( before Walmart phones ). This phone rocks it has the best battery life, camera, display, and with the Moto mods I am constantly amazing friends. My only minor complain is the texting feature of the ( I am driving ) and I can't turn it off permanently. No big deal but this phone has nougat 7.1.1 and I the it will upgrade to 8.0 best phone

For pixel peepers, the Z Play is significantly softer than s7's. Do 3rd party apps improve that?

However, my camera experience in low light and lack of OIS in Z play has also been quite good. I tried a number of camera apps available in Google play store and found that open camera and snap camera apps covered up the deficiencies of OIS and low light performance in Z play remarkably well. Snap camera app in my Z play beat S7 Edge hands down in poor light conditions photos and videos with hardly visible noise. Some photos in street light came as if taken in day light. Can anybody share his/her experience with camera apps ?

Studio comparison may only show their best results, but the process of getting there may differ. I'm surprised to hear you say Z Play is that strong though, detail wise, Moto phones don't have much sharpening going on, and dynamic range is not great (underexpose and overexpose different areas in the same photo)

In good light, moto z play beats S8+, LG G6, S7 edge, Iphone 7+, hands down. Only one plus 3t is just below because of the noise factor. Just compare yourself, the green mesh on donkey is only visible in moto z play pic.
In low light it beats every other phone and just below s8+. It beats every other phone hands down.
In real world I don't know. Can anybody put some light on it.
Clearly GSMArena missed the exact point of this phone. It´s different, and the whole package is far more complete than a OnePlus. The 625 is a very efficient processor, and 3Gb is more than enough. None of the phones above have a dedicated slot for micro sd and two sims, mot z play has!
Also has water splash resistance! And you have moto mods. Also the batery life is one of the best outhere without compromise the weight or the phone dimensions.
Honestly the ones who have this phone can agree with me this one the best phones released by motorola ever!
The Moto Z Play makes for a very decent upper mid-ranger with amazing battery life too. A good review for a good phone.

So i agree with your point.
DuckieDroid, 28 Jan 2017Edit: I'm fine with phones up to 2 cm thick, not 1 cm,No led, but there is active display and every1 who is using motorola knows that is something you will miss when ever you change device... Led vs active display? Why would i need stupid notification light over advanced sensors + battery friendly amoled screen which shows interactive notifications on glance
Purchased this phone for long battery backup which i was not getting in my previous phones. Totally satisfied with two months of use. Good camera performance with google open camera app. Battery lasts two days with moderate usage which is increased after updating to nougat. no lags. super-amoled display too good. purchased transparent back cover which gives it an elegant look. Waiting for cheap mods especially camera.
Not to bad of a phone, would have been better if it came with a back cover like the moto z.
Is there a..... wait, let me guess, THERE ISN'T A LED NOTIF on the MZP is there !?
When i was eyeing on the X Play not too long ago, i did get dissapointed by the absence of LED notification. I was pitting it against Vibe P1, Vibe K5, and also Vibe P1 "Turbo" that each has rather unacceptable weaknesses.
For this reason alone, the MZP loses outright to P2 in my opinion.
Does the MZP has points worthy of mention ? Yes there are !
- proprietary slot for the 2nd sim AND micro SD card slot
- Moto Mods, in particular i'd like to give that Battery extension a chance, which looks like a fancy powerbank you can slap to the back of the phone. Then again, no news yet on Moto Mods availability in my country. Speakin of battery, the P2 also wins in terms of proprietary fast charging tech, 15 W vs 18 W. Yes, i feel the need for even more battery even though the current score is quite good.
- it is remarkably Slim. Well, it's uncertain how much thickness the Battery moto mods will add. I'm fine with phones up to 1 cm thick. Even thick bezels, half a centimeter on each sides are fine. That huge protruding camera doesn't look good, without the moto mods.

Even the speaker mod costs $100
An instant sales dud in my opinion
