Obi Wan Kenobi, 11 Oct 2017A textbook case of why you should never compromise the battery capacity of a phone. Moto Z2... moreSO true. I have the z play and the batterry its amazing. I will buy another one before motorola stops selling it.
vino41, 12 Oct 2017I'm pretty sure I already read the review before. That's why I know I should not buy Z2 Play hahaToo expensive for the price range. They should not mention Splash & Dust Resistant since it is almost the same as not waterproof, the fact that when people see Splash & Water Resistant they will still say it is not fully waterproof or not waterproof at all. Battery is rather disappointing, a 3000mAh battery got 76hr endurance rating when XPERIA XA1 with ONLY 2300mAh battery got 72hr endurance rating, aye

A textbook case of why you should never compromise the battery capacity of a phone.
Moto Z2 Play with 3000 mAh: Endurance 76 hours
Moto Z Play with 3510 mAh: Endurance 100 hours
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2017Lenovo already owned motorola , when the original Z Play got released.It did, but imposing the Chinese ideas to the Motorola employees takes a bit of time...so they still had time to release some good phones at the beginning, probably the ones which were already in the pipeline.
From 100h battery life (Moto Z1 Play) to 76h (Moto Z2 Play). You can now see how much damage is done when a Chinese maker buys a reputable company. Only the name is Motorola, the rest in Chinese crap.
With the change of generations battery endurance reduced by 25%.

The Real Guest, 11 Oct 2017Yeah I know the specs are crap, they should use volcano glass protection, 16K resolution, Amol... moreHaha... Really enjoyed this post.
And to those wondering why this is reviewed only now - it's because it's launching this month on many European markets. Motorola/Lenovo has been slow to launch this phone internationally.

Come on Motorola, learn from One ... moreYeah I know the specs are crap, they should use volcano glass protection, 16K resolution, AmoleKateUptonDD panel, 900 Terabyte storage, 10 SD card slots, 60 MP Quad Camera setup, first camera regular, second, infrared, third night vision, fourth wide angle. Also an additional 5th camera with telescopic zoom. On the front, there should be a dual camera. Both cameras must have a lightning rod to use actual lightning as a Flash. Inside the phone, I would like a 12,000 core snapvalkyrie processor and 64 GB of ram. The sides of the phone should be crafted by metal forged in the fires of hell with the signature of satan. While the back of the phone should be crafted by immaculate glass serenaded with enchanting harps by angels of heaven. Throw in 8 sd card slots and 4 Heaphone jacks with 4 usb c ports. And load the phone with every version of Android, Windows Phone from 5-10, Sailfish and Ubuntu.
Price it at $174 only then I will buy it.
I was just about to buy it. And now there is a review... Yei! I heard the answers to all the questions I hesitated about. Good battery life, camera, swiftness of the UI and it still has those modules. And metal body would be much appreciated by my sister since she prone to drop phones. They also should have made a module with better camera. Let's say 1' chip or at least 1/2 sensor size and f/2.0 optics with OIS. This would be a real deal to buy
vino41, 11 Oct 2017Why reviewed again?This is a review, previously they made it as a preview only. Now this is the real review, while previous one is just a preview
What happened to Motorola/Lenovo...they used to be the battery champ. Seriously it is a shame...it seems that not many were looking forward to the Motorola top devices like they used to a few years ago.
I think people are expecting too much from this phone. It's only significant flaw is that it is overpriced but it ticks every box. Some of the camera stuff can be fixed with a software update. I've saw speed tests on youtube where this device punches above its weight class. With a price revision or two, this is a no brainer.
