Aloof, 25 Dec 2016Can't you change animation speed in developer's options?Yes you can. Don't turn them off completely, as it will break the moto notifications

Things like this aren't always consistent because maybe Doze doesn't work 100% of the time. My X Play had less than 1% drop in 9 hours with Moto Display off, just an observation from last sleep.

In usage depends on the optimization, but assuming its perfect, c7 still has to push harder cause touchwiz is a hog, has bigger screen, and smaller battery.
Also, there is plenty of evidence that touchwiz is heavy, no need to believe any different. And dont point any benchmarks, for one i never look at them so i dont know what to make of it, but mostly because these dont reflect daily use smoothness

Uberano, 26 Dec 2016I would like to see some numbers on that if that's possible.take a look at their testing procedure i think they link it every review

This phone seemed to tick all the right boxes for me, as I don't need a speed daemon. I wasn't planning on using mods either.
But the price instantly killed it as an option. There's no way I'm paying twice the price of a G4 Plus for a better CPU, slightly better screen and mods support. Hell, I don't even need the fingerprint scanner, a plain Moto G4 will do if you can get the 32GB version (which usually you can't).
What the heck?
I have a 64gb Moto Z Play...
Who said that it doesn't?
Aloof, 25 Dec 2016TechTrinkets? Hehe. I still wish Z Play has 4gb of RAM so it doesn't get squashed in that revi... moreYes!
I using it since a month... & its power-beast! And if you want speed, just go to build number, tap 6-7 times to enable dev-option & scroll for "Animation" setting, by default its "1 X"; change it to 0.5 X... & check the improvement!
Anonymous, 26 Dec 2016156.4mm? They have created a monster.Big bezels and dimensions for such a small screen. My Nexus 6 from stone age: 159.3 x 83 x 10.1 mm (6.27 x 3.27 x 0.40 in) and it at least has a 6" post-stamp size of a screen.
Uberano, 26 Dec 2016I would like to see some numbers on that if that's possible.Me too, I am looking at the results and between the scores in hours we know, talk time, web browsing and video playback and the end result, if we extrapolate, shows that the "super power efficient" Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset in the standby test, the one we can not see, the Moto Z Play is one of the worst phone we have seen in the, top 30? Those results are more for an average, good, battery phone, not for one of the kings in 2016. I repeat myself, something is wrong with this test, the extrapolation of the data and the info about the SD 625 does not compute. Can someone, please, do the test again or show the standby results. Was something on-off with the phone gsmarena tested? I am not kidding if I expected 120 hours so 100 are a very good result for a phone but disappointing for the Moto Z Play. Thanks

Yes, the review is a bit off, for what it should be, but perhaps the reviewer has some personal issue with it. I've used it since it came out and most of the time it was an awesome experience. The only visible downside for me at the moment, is that sometimes AF on the camera cannot lock on. Other than that it's all great. A lot of people complain about performance (due to the mid specs), but I'm happy with it. The phone is snappy, looks great and the biggest of all the pros - battery life. I was stunned clocking 3-4 days on one charge. I'll take that over slightly faster performance all day, every day!
Dasman, 26 Dec 2016Bigger camera sensor, I would say!Sadly, OP3 pictures are sharper, especially in good lighting.

If u hear something nice, u will praise moto and something bad, then lenovo!
This mods concept was an failure attempt from Lenovo. They tried this Vibe X2 and failed like LG G5.
Motorola only knows to make bricks.
