Moto Z vs Moto Z Force vs Moto Z Droid: three-way specs comparison


So, the Moto Z and Moto Z Force got announced earlier today at Lenovo's Tech World summit. 

The Moto Z emphasizes on the looks with its ultra-thin 5.19mm body, while the Moto Z Force with its Shatter Shield display is intended for those folks that love a sturdy device. 

Additionally, there's a 5.19mm Moto Z Droid mentioned here and there — what's that one?

That's nice and all, but are the basics covered? By basics, we mean hardware specs, the stuff that gets our geek blood flowing like nothing else!

We suppose you might be interested how the duo stacks up in terms of raw specification data, so we decided to treat you and show you a quick comparison. You'll find it below, thank us later.
