The "1-Minute" Review
The latest modular addition to the Moto family is turning heads, but it has an upgraded premium version as well--the Motorola Moto Z Force.
In many ways, the phone is identical to its lower-priced sibling. They both feature the same Snapdragon 820 processor, 32 or 64GB of storage, modular add-ons, lack of headphone port and beautiful 5.5-inch QHD display.
While the design is similar, the Moto Z Force is slightly thicker--largely due to the increased battery capacity. However, many reviewers agreed that the added heft was a welcome addition to the phone. With a 3500mAh battery, reviewers had no problems pushing a day and a half of usage on a single charge.
The other major change is an upgraded rear camera. Replacing the 13MP chip on the Moto Z with a 21MP Sony chip, the Moto Z Force wowed reviewers and performed comparably to the best flagships currently available. The camera also adds phase-detection autofocus to the feature list to make snapping shots even faster.
While the differences might seem minor, so is difference in price. If you’re on the fence about which to grab, PC Magazine says, “If you're going to spend $600 on a phone, you might as well spend $700. Go out and get a Moto Z Force.”
