Moto Z and Moto Z Force: all new features

The Moto Z and Moto Z Force are the two radical new things on the phone market: Lenovo surprised everyone with the introduction of two modular phones with some crazy new attachments.

A new 16-pin magnetic mechanism allows users to attach all one of four modules available initially: a pico projector, a JBL speaker, a battery pack and a custom back plate.

This, without a doubt, is the signature feature of the new Moto Z series, but what about the details and the other important features? We round them up for your right below, take a look.

The omission of 3.5mm and my separation anxiety. Is it really that hard to live without the standard headphone jack? For me its a big deal, cant charge and use headsets at the same time.

Yep no 3.5 mm is a deal breaker for me.

I was thinking about some kind of snap on adapter, that I can leave on the headphone cable, something like this but for 3.5mm audio would be fine. Just leave it on the headphone and forget about it. I don't think ditching the 3.5mm would be such a big deal this way.

Dont worry guys !! Type-c Y splitter type adapters will be available very soon!! And if it can charge within 1 hour , you should wait for watching or listening songs!!! How about 350$ and 500$

Lenovo destroyed Motorola and apparently fired up all the designers. Camera bump is absolutely terrible,especially on thicker Force version. Bezels bigger than on iPhone (congrats lenovo,you beat them at least there). Also super shiny body....This cant cost more than 300 USD really.

Actually, the iPhone 6s Plus (also with 5.5 display) has a lesser screen-to-body ratio (71.77% vs 67.91%). So iPhone is steal the winner in the bezels competition.

lol im not sheep when i own LG,i just call things as they are. HW-wise the phone is much better,I admit it,but design is awful and design makes 60% of whole phone.

You can't have your best phone be a carrier exclusive and expect it to succeed, financially. You're instantly cutting off 75%+ of the American market.
