The Moto Z2 Force Edition affected by the "jelly effect" issue, what gives?

It's been less than a month since the Moto Z2 Force Edition made its debut in the United States, so many customers have already been able to purchase one. If you are one of those people, then you might not have known that the Moto Z2 Force is affected by the same “jelly effect” issue as the OnePlus 5.
Neither Lenovo nor OnePlus offered an official explanation as to why their phones display the same erratic behavior when scrolling. Many believe that the “jelly effect” is caused by the fact that the display on these phones has been mounted upside down.
We're pretty sure that both Lenovo and OnePlus have tested their products before making them available on the market, so there's probably only a small number of units affected by the issue.
It's not the first time that a Motorola smartphone is launched with its display mounted in an inverted orientation, but it's the first time that people start noticing it and complain about it.
Mounting the display upside down allows handset makers to better position the internal of the phone inside the chassis. Despite the “jelly scrolling” issue, both Moto Z2 Force and OnePlus 5 are pretty decent smartphones, but everyone deserves to know about any problems the products they plan to buy, be they minor or major.

- Camera 12 MP / 5 MP front

I'd expect a low-margin smartphone like the OP5 to have some defects and such, but to see this kind of thing coming from Motorola/Lenovo is disappointing.

I couldn't even make out the so called "jelly effect" even in the slo mo. This is a non-issue.

It's only a non issue if your phone isn't doing that. This was why I got rid of my Droid Turbo, because it had that effect on the screen and the bottom half of the screen was a warmer white balance than the top.

I'm not seeing the issue to be honest. Not to say that Jelly scrolling effect isn't an issue, I've seen it on the One Plus 5 and it's pretty bad. I'm simply saying that if there is a jelly effect with the Moto Z2 Force, I'm simply not seeing it from the video provided.

In the video I didn't see anything but now that I have the phone I can confirm it has a Jelly effect, not extremely bad and the scrolling has to be fluid to notice but still for a phone at flagship price you don't expect these issues
