Motorola Moto Z Droid Edition Specs



The Motorola Moto Z Droid Edition is the US version of the Moto Z, available on Verizon. Without a doubt, the Moto Mods modules are its killer feature. They snap onto the back of the device, augmenting its functionality - by adding a projector, a stereo speaker set, or simply a huge battery, for instance. Or you can simply use a stylish back plate with natural leather, wood, or fabric finish. As far as specs go, the Moto Z is a beast, boasting plenty of memory and the fastest chip Qualcomm has in stock. All that hardware, along with the 13MP camera and 2600mAh battery, is packed inside a super-slim, metal-made body.

Worst Phone I've owned. Will never buy Moto again
Phone owned for more than a year

Bought the phone in December 2016. At first, I loved the phone. Moto Mods were awesome. The build quality was awesome. It was super fast. The camera was good for a Moto phone, and the battery was actually astounding. I loved it. Then, after about 3 months it was updated to Nougat. Performance immediately took a small dip. I was getting crashes and stuttering. Battery was significantly worse. Over the next 5 months it got worse and worse. After 8 months I got a warranty replacement.

The replacement seemed to fix all the issues I had. Then, the 7.1.1 update happened. Battery was terrible, performance was decreased, and Bluetooth no longer worked. After 8 months(see a pattern?) the phone would be off the charger at 8am and dead by 11am with less than 1 hours SOT. Utter trash. Horrible experience and Moto was of no help with any issues.

Top 10 Phone on the list of 100 phones Ive owned in the past 10 Years, The MOds are amazing and the ability to swap them is even better. I use the Camera and Battery MOds and I can say that I wish more phones had this ability.
