OMG! is this an upgrade to the Z3 Play? If so, then this is truly awesome! but, hope this will reach in the Philippines. I'm so confused what phone to get now. But I'm still loving my daily driver Moto Z play and Droid RAZR.

Actually you get the versatility of one day having a slim device for the 'dinner jacket' with the build in battery AND another day after clicking on a battery pack for more demanding tasks.
If the versatility of the Mods is not interesting for your usage pattern, well then you are not in the target audience for this series. And you can find cheaper devices with otherwise similar specs.
MeMyselfandI, 06 Aug 20183000 mah battery? What a joke...Mine z2 Force work for a ~30 hours with 6 messengers, facebook and such ... It's not correct to compare only by battery, kernel and software optimization can affect a work life a lot
I will no longer consider any phone with less than a 4000 mAh battery and favor 5000 mAh or more. No more settling for just ok batteries.
I don't know what people are smoking to vote this old hardware as hot.
This is not the future. Yes it's nice to have the speed of a new flagship, but with the looks and thickness of a 2012 flagship? Also, do you save money on this method? 500$ for the phone running 2017 hardware and (if you dont use their system) ~100-200$ for the mod - that's 600-700$ in total! You will get a new midranger or even a china-flaghip (honor, mi, oneplus etc.) with 5g at that time or just a tad later. I dont think customers will pay into this. It reminds me of the sega 32x/Sega Saturn misery. A new moto with 5g will be out soon after the moto mod and will not sport an antenna and ~1,5mm buildup.

It's called price difference. It's gonna be sold with a price tag of a 2018 flagship not a 2017 flagship.
the question is, why go for the new Z3 , while the Z2 Force is basically the same, for mauch less?Even the 5G mod should be compatible with the Z2 force.....

I have used the Z3 Play. It has a very dim display, even at full brightness. I hope this model can get much brighter then the Z3 Play.
Oh no the battry capacty is too low its a 5G phone which will consume battry life it should have be 7000mah
So this 'flagship ' phone gets a 3000 mah battery and no one says anything, but the budget Mi A2 gets one and everyone freaks out........ Geniuses
i still remember my moto razr and moto rokr during school days. ah beautiful memories.
BrendonF, 04 Aug 2018This is a highly competitive market. Maybe right now the differences are subtle but this is th... moreYeah and its because of the chip concerns, OEMS does not innovate more. Keep on pasting the same and boring designs
Geric.770, 04 Aug 2018Nope. Not really.
Just only asking why Motorola stepped back the SoC game like LG.
Sometimes... moreI dont care about the SOC, i been using flagship devices for the last 4 years and I cant even tell the difference of the SD 801 TO SD 835. They are fast enough and can do everything I want. The only noticeable is the heating issues of the phones chip set.
