Moto Z2 Force Review

0. phoneArena posted on 03 Aug 2017, 08:01

This year, as we check out the second generation of Moto Z phones, there's no split between a new Z and new Z Force model. Instead, Motorola has seriously slimmed down the Z Force and is presenting it as the top-shelf modular phone of the season. Will that prove to be a wise move?

From a customer standpoint, the shattershield is a HUGE selling point. People buy screen protector, scratches are taken care of, and the screen wont break. Its a great selling feature that people love, and a differentiation that no other phone on the market has.

To say they need to scrap it is to say that innovation needs to be quashed. To say the mods arent compelling is to say you want the same ol device that you can buy already from 30 different makers.

The minute any manufacturer tries something different, the tech blog community is right there to s**t all over it.

That's all OK. But why sacrifice great battery life for useless 1 mm extra thin?

From phonearena's battery test. The battery life should be great. I am getting 5hrs of sot with my G6. Their test is kinda flawed to be honest.

No it isn't. It's a tradeoff where you get a screen that doesn't shatter, but is scratched by a strong gust of wind. That's not innovation, it just creates a different reason to buy a screen protector.

Oh really? So you'd rather break your phone? a $2 tempered glass protector for any Moto Z phone can keep the Force scratch free but drop any Sammy or iPhone with a $5 protector and your heart will skip a beat.

From the new moto z family honestly this is the better phone, hopefully they could make a final change on the screen design so it at least gets as reliable as last years'

Thanks. It's never a bad idea to also consider reviews from others. I've googled and found a website which shows reviews from multiple sources and the overall score for Moto Z2 Force. rewagg.com. You can find very interesting and diversified thoughts related to this version of Moto.
