AnonD-209065, 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.
Aloof, 12 Aug 2017GSMArena seems to ignore Moto phones now. Look at the Z2 Play and G5 Plus. There isn't even a ... more FYI: GSM Arena has went on record and stated they will be doing less reviews from now on.
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.
xOdd, 12 Aug 2017The S8 came above the Z2 in 4 tests and was equal with it in ond test. I'm pretty sure gaming ... moreBenchmark score is one thing and real life performance is another.
SAMSUNG bloats software which lags over time. On other hand MOTOROLA with nearly stock Android ( or any other with stock version) will always perform better,even at lower RAM.
And if performance is compared to iphone,no SAMSUNG device can match, be it quad,deca,octa or hexa core SoC.
AnonD-292897, 12 Aug 2017Where are the studio good/low light photos? GSMArena seems to ignore Moto phones now. Look at the Z2 Play and G5 Plus. There isn't even a full review for each of them.
Why no review of audio quality in this review? That's an important quality to have.
moto z force was faster than both s7edge qualcom and exynos versions
moto z2 force looks to keep the trend - moto powerhouse !
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2017Do you think 3-5 hours SOT is... Good? I get more than 7-9 hours normally on my Huawei Mate 9 ... moreGood is a relative term when it comes to personal preference, do keep that in mind. I think at least 6 hrs is great.

Without looking at the performance section it is basically the same thing since it is using the same processor as the rest of the high-end flagships. For me sometimes I wouldn't care for the performance comparison chart with the rest of the current ones since they have the same chipset. But it is cool to see which ones can break the record scores more than others for specific apps for testing the performance

[deleted post]The S8 came above the Z2 in 4 tests and was equal with it in ond test. I'm pretty sure gaming performance would be the same on every SD835 phone, though.
I don't understand why people are tripping on the screen hardness. A simple tempered glass screen protector for any Z device can do the job. Plus no matter how good your screen protector is on top of Gorilla Glass, it's prone to shattering when dropped along with the screen below it. With the Force you will never worry about screen replacements.
Disappointed when i saw pictures from rare camera and front camera,hope moto x4 will do it better
All things considered, I still feel the Z2 Force is a step down from last year's Z Force. BTW, was this review done in Florida?
VoloKin Project, 12 Aug 2017"And the Moto Z had terrible battery life." I'm still getting 3-5h SOT so I really don't see w... moreDo you think 3-5 hours SOT is... Good? I get more than 7-9 hours normally on my Huawei Mate 9 and that's pretty much where good battery life starts from. 3 hours is really, really bad and 5 hours isn't that good either.
I'd get Z2 Play instead.
Same cool design.
Slightly more battery (3000 vs 2730 , 10% more).
