The Moto Z2 Play smartphone is the latest entry from Motorola when it comes to modular phones. The interesting fact about these devices is that they allow the user to swap in add-ons which add new features. In what concerns the Z2 Play, it’s a more refined version of the company’s middle range handset. Also, it brings a lot of new mods with it. On Verizon, the price of the phone starts at $408. When it goes on sale directly from Motorola this summer, it will cost $499, and it will be unlocked.
The new Moto Z2 Play
In comparison with its cheaper sibling, the Moto G5 Plus, the new Moto Z2 Play smartphone is even thinner and with a bigger, 5.5-inch AMOLED display. It’s very interesting that while having some notable differences, it also borrows the home button which acts like a fingerprint sensor with gesture controls from its sibling. However, there is one single big problem with this new model. It failed to borrow the absolutely amazing battery life of the Moto G5 Plus.
As for its design, the Moto Z2 Play is maybe one of the thinnest smartphones on the market. It comes with a perfectly flat aluminum back which offers it an elegant vibe. Also, its huge rear camera module which is very obvious on the device makes the phone different from what we are used to call “high tech” these days. At least in what concerns its design. The fingerprint sensor which is also the home button is still there. The phone also comes with USB-C and dedicated headphone ports, which is a very nice and useful thing.
Its 5.5-inch AMOLED display is larger than that of its predecessor and also, more colorful. The quality of the display is very good for those people who prefer watching TV shows, movies or sports on their smartphone. Its vibrant qualities will keep your eyes stuck on it for a very long time.
A qualitative smartphone
It’s worth noting that the Z2 Play comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 16MP camera and a microSD expandability. Still, it’s very important for users to know that the performance they will get from it is not much different than that of the cheaper Moto G5 Plus. S, it depends of each person’s taste and if they’re willing to pay more for almost the same performance.
