Motorola Z2 Play – more is less (review)

The Moto Z2 Play, Gen 2, 2017, packs way more into its next iteration as the entry-level flagship of the Z series. Add Moto Mods compatibility and it can take sales from its more expensive big brothers, the Z2 and Z2 Force.

Moto was the trendy new name moving forward after Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility from Google in late 2014. Fast forward and it is about to change – enter Motorola again.

Moto’s Z series including its new Z2 should be renamed Transformers – with a commitment by Motorola to release at least 12 new mods a year these phones can be anything.

The Moto G series is where Moto packs as much value as it can to produce a mass-market — the $150 to $499 range — phone. On the whole, the G5 and G5 Plus succeed.

One of the best, Android phones in 2016 was the Moto Z with its Moto Mods range that could add a Hasselblad camera, Ingrid battery, pico projector and more.

The Moto G “heritage” is one of premium features without a premium price tag. The all-new Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus remain true to this legacy, delivering what people want most without a premium price.
