I have a Motorola. Since the Lenovo acquisition, updates have been nonexistent. Mine is now two Android versions behind. The reason I bought it in the first place was the lack of a skin that enables fast updates, and it used to be true. No more. Looks like Nokia is the new Moto.
Very weird battery life. For 2730 mAh and a QHD screen the individual battery scores are amazing (18+ hours of video), but the standby draw is high, leading to the 69 hour battery endurance. The lack of the 3.5 mm headphone jack is bad.
This is the honest review i have found on the internet.
Keep up the good work.
i have moto z force yesterday my touch working stop without any drop plz tell me anyone have a solution for this problem ......
Had this phone for one day and took ot back. It's a gorgeous phone. The camera was amazing, the colors popped and it was really lightweight. But...there is only 1 font, the navigation buttons cannot be moved, (you can however customize the fingerprint button) and no LED. I customized th3 fingerprint button to a back, forward and home key and it was very frustrating to try to navigate. I really wanted to like this phone, but for the price..it wasnt worth it.
(for unlocked version)
First you buy this overpriced mediocre camera phone and then you have to buy super costly mods to compensate for that tiny battery too. I also heard it's screen is made of planstic and it easily get scratches.
Seriously why should someone but it.
Every other phone in it's price range is better than this.
When everything tough , Lenovo forgot the battery life is most important. it's not tough. if you put in 5000mah even more , i will believe a lot ppl will satisfying with it.
What about WiFi-call - not mention?
Remember MOTO promise 2 gen. of Android - Xperia doesn't!
Moto Z series is innovative not just a smart phone, quality known for Motorola device, I prefer it on Samsung device which have lot of specs and little performance

Most people buy their high end phones for pictures, videos and then just apps. S8 fails to run smooth without hiccups in day to day tasks and will probably will get a lot worse with each software update thanks to Samsung's programmed obsolescence (akl Samsung phones did).

Stock android will win eventually, given that the best of things are the simple ones. But Samsung and other companies such as Huawei and Xiaomi came a long way in the development of their UI and it's greatly getting more practical and more consistent. Maybe we'll have one that's beautiful and feature-rich and can match or out-match stock android.

I agree that their software greatly affects the overall user experience, especially ram management and multi-tasking, but gaming should be the same given it's the same chipset.

I respect Lenovo as manufacturer,but 800$ for this Moto Z2??Common,really..should be half of that,

Even XPERIA smartphones are still known better even though they are inconvenient to buy it in the US, people still buy it
BtownD, 12 Aug 2017Why no review of audio quality in this review? That's an important quality to have. Good point. At least this review has the reviewer's name listed, something new or rare.

This model is priced ambitiously. However, the original Z Force can be found for roughly 224 USD$, leading me to believe this year's model won't have a particularly high resale value either. One should think that next year, the Z Force 3 (or whatever they call it) will have HI RES audio built in.
