Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Droid Force are available starting today on Verizon Wireless


Starting today, you can buy the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid on Verizon Wireless.

The two new Moto phones by Lenovo are truly unique in a market filled with me-too devices: they come with the neat Moto Mods, accessories that snap magnetically and easily to the back of the phone. At launch, there is a pico projector, a JBL speaker, a battery case and regular cases available as Moto Mods, but Lenovo is opening this up to developers to make custom accessories.

But even without the new Moto Mods, the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid are worth a look: both are packed to the gills with one of the most powerful chips on Android, the Snapdragon 820, and both feature a clean and fast skin on top of Android 6 Marshmallow. The Moto Z Droid in particular stands out with its super thin, 5.2mm body, the thinnest on a mainstream phone, but in exchange for that it has a tiny battery. The Moto Z Force Droid is a bit thicker, just enough to be on par with most current devices, yet this allows it to come with a larger battery and a few other extras.

Both phones also come with Shatter Shield screens, meaning that their displays won't crack or break when dropped, and that's quite reassuring. 

Make sure to take a look at our detailed review of the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Droid Force to learn all the details about them.

Finally, do also keep in mind that Verizon Wireless also offers you to trade in a phone and get up to $300 towards a purchase of the new Moto Z, and you can even trade in some phones with a broken screen.

Any how, I wonder if these devices can work on T-Mobile 4G LTE?

There is no reason why not. Especially when the Moto Z is one of the few phones that supports LTE cat 9.

Very clever ad truly. Moto are really having a blast with the Z tbh. Crazy stuff. Btw, my sources told me that lenovo might be release the camera Mod very soon. I was told that it'll be a Hasselblad camera Optic with a very large sensor and 10X Zoom (or something along those lines). If you go to best buy, you'll see that they've created a space of the camera Mod, along the other Mods signifying that the release of the camera Mod is imminent. Meanwhile I'll just drop this here.https://plus.google.com/app/basic/stream/z13hddfxbzecutgw404ccjwg0sfxurkp0jc

Will the camera mod be another $300 dollar mod?

My body is ready. I really don't care if the bottom bezel is too big for some, for something of this versatility is worth the price tag an an aesthetic compromise. The lack of 3.55mm headphone jack should be fixed with a moto mod already thrown in there, otherwise I am loving the Force variant.

Btw, the developer kit has been released to the public, so you should expect it anytime soon from a 3rd party manufacturer/individual

The mdk even has support for Raspberry Pi hats. That is so cool.

Seems like nice devices but on the wrong network. Verizon. Ugh. They can urinate off. Can you hear that? They should use this design without the Droid name and sell on other carriers.

Lenovo already said that it will be coming to others this September.

Verizon has a better network than anyone out there. You should urinate off. Verizon gets the good exclusives for a reason.

If LG would make a "Friend" for the G5 that made it possible to attach Moto Mods to their phone, they might actually sell off some of the stockpile before garbage time... (Speaking as an owner of the G5)

Phones are nice. Played with them for a bit today. The regular Z is really thin. I will say they feel a lot wider than I thought they would. The mods are neat and they stay on really well. Tried to flick one off the phone and it didn't budge.

"Both phones also come with Shatter Shield screens" If I'm not mistaken, the 'Force' in Moto Z Force means it has the shatter shield. The Moto Z does not. There are a few more differences in the two phones also.
