Great handsets. However, where's the regular Moto Z? And why did Mototrolla decide to name, the next Moto G handset, gS, instead of G6? Really stupid in my opinion......and very unlikable too.

They are bloating the lineup. Z force, X, GS+ and E would be a vb perfect portfolio with about EUR100 retracted from the prices Moto uses nowadays.

" where's the regular Moto Z?" The Z Play becomes the lower tier Z phone. It was confusing having a low/middle/high, where the middle was just a smaller battery from the top tier phone. A lot of ignorant people SWORE they had a "Z" with a headset jack, when in fact the Z and Z FORCE did NOT have a headset jack. Instead they had a "Z Play". It was confusing. Having TWO variants are better. The Z2 Play will have 1080p and Snadragon 6xx, while the Z2 Force will be top tier 1440p and Snapdragon 835.

Exactly what I was saying from the beginning. Just have the 2 phones. If they had stuck to that I would have a z force right now. But yea they're really unnecessarily saturating the market.

Too many handset... Leeds to slower update ... It should be Moto e - 8k Moto g - 13k Moto X play - 20k Moto X - 30k Moto z - 40k
