Great bargain for a great smartphone

I bought the Z3 to replace my Google Pixel. I was attracted to the beautiful screen, the solid specs and ability to use the moto mods. I have been very pleased. The UI is close to stock without all the bloatware that Samsung puts on their phones and the user experience is very good. I really like the battery life and when you add the battery mod, I get two to three days of heavy use. Perhaps the best value on the market for a new Verizon smartphone

This phone isn't gonna blow anyone's minds in camera performance or battery life. The phone is powerful enough to push through anything but it could've had the newer snapdragon 845. I'm still on 8.1 Oreo and 9.0 should be here in Q4 2018. The display looks awesome with the color mode on vibrant. I'd say that reception is almost fully dependent on where you live and it isn't the phone itself because if you live in an area where there aren't many cell phone towers, of course your reception will be bad. In a congested area, I was able to hit about 150 mb/s which is about 18 full megabytes per second.

Pros

  • Build is pretty nice to look at and feel
  • Overall feel in terms of UI and build feels solid and snappy
  • One button nav can give a bit more screen but there is a long bar that the pill resides in
  • The screen is beautiful and the perfect resolution for battery life and sharpness

Cons

  • Battery life can be a bit disappointing for heavier users
  • Cameras aren't great but they're decent
  • There is no headphone jack
  • Although the snapdragon 835 is pretty great by today's standards, it could've had the newer snapdragon 845
  • Now that I've had it for a while, I've noticed the screen scratches easily even with careful usage. I'd highly suggest a screen protector.

Very Enjoyable Media device with Mods

Xoia_Nightwalker has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I have had the Z1-3, and I have enjoyed all the phones, though the one thing I always wanted was a bigger screen, and the one thing that was always lacking was the camera. Now I've got a bright, 6" screen and a perfectly solid camera on a budget device
