Unlocked Motorola Moto Z2 Play (for T-Mobile and AT&T) is now unofficially available via Amazon

Released in the US at the end of June (last week), the Motorola Moto Z2 Play is currently available only on Verizon Wireless - thus, it's locked and can't be used on other carriers. Of course, an unlocked version of the Moto Z2 Play will be available in the US sometime later this summer, but maybe you don't want to wait until then to get it. If you don't, you can already order an unlocked Z2 Play via Amazon, though there are a few caveats here.

The Moto Z2 Play that can currently be bought through Amazon isn't officially sold by Motorola, but by a third-party seller, and costs $100 more than it will when Motorola is going to start selling it: $599, instead of $499. The handset is GSM/LTE only, so it works on T-Mobile and AT&T, but not on Sprint, Verizon, or US Cellular. If you're OK with these things, you can go ahead and order your Z2 Play right away via the source link below.

Running Android 7 Nougat out of the box, the Moto Z2 Play succeeds the Z Play from 2016, and brings a slightly redesigned, thinner body - which, sadly, means a smaller battery, too (though battery life is still decent). You can find out much more about the phone by reading our Moto Z2 Play review.

I know, right? This is really just a metal version of the G5 Plus w/ a stupid price tag. People who are considering this just get the G5 Plus.

This price will come down when unlocked Z² Play becomes available. As for the G5 Plus, it's arguably weaker. The design isn't as attractive. You don't get an AMOLED. The SoC is also more powerful on the Z2 Play. The headphone jack throws HTC level voltage on the Z2 and you can obviously add any mod you want to, even older used ones which you'll find quite cheap.
