Seems like a nice modern smartphone

It will be sold at $499 in the US bundled with the battery Moto Mod. We are just not sure if it's a smart move to invest in new Mods now that they've been around for three generations of phones and they may not be compatible with phones coming out next year.

The handsets large footprint and middling power make it seem more like a 'G6 Plus Plus' than the once top-of-the-tree Moto flagship. And with rumour that Motorola might only support the Z series for three generations - and noting the lack of any additional Mod launches with this phone - maybe the Z series days are on borrowed time...
