Motorola Moto Z2 Play - User Reviews

  • Which one is better? Moto z play or Moto z2 play

  • Hey Moto how about some update!?I'm stuck with Oreo forever? Jeez.

  • Is it dual SIM

  • Download Blokada! Works great. :)

  • this phone is trash I'm sick and tired of the secondary ads that keep popping up on my phone every time I go to do something or text that is not right when I'm paying $800 for this damn phone and y'all are running out of money that you'll have to put ads on my phone to pay the bills that is ridiculous you need to fix that now or else this phone is going in the trash

  • Look up how to enter recovery mode.

  • how fix stuck at M logo boot? when i connect to charge only lighting display no percent

  • Sent this mail to Motorola, no reply so far.... Hello Motorola, please read this in detail and seriously if you really care about your customers feedback. This is the first Motorola phone I have purchased so far. Moto Z2 play. Prior to purchase I haven't even knew the name but as the case of emergency I decided to purchase it. Everything about phone I found good, although I have purchased it nearly after one and half year of launch but still I found this device good. Specifically the moto actions, display, light weight, camera, slim body and build quality I really liked things in this phone. But here are the complaints I faced and still facing about the device moto Z2 play. 01. No regular security updates. 02. No android pie (9) available nor the slightest signs of its arrival are seen so far now. Its already many months are passed by launching android 9 pie. 03. Scarcity of moto hub and shops. At local level no body knows about moto phones hence the availability of moto phones is far away thing. 04. Many months I have been searching for moto mods but even your customer care executives don't know anything about them!!!! How many mods are there? From where to get them ?? Why they are so so costly??? Why not even on Amazon and flipkart the mods available till now???? Is it the only gimmick done by Motorola????? 05. Many cheap mobile phones have features and functions that Motorola does not have, please include them in upcoming update. They're already mentioned on lenovo and Motorola forum. To name few I say no screen mirror or screen cast options to tv, no call recorder, no app lock, etc. Motorola, we trust you, and it takes lot and lot to gain the trust. Dont make us to loose our trust on you. I have already listed my mobile on olx, trust me nobody is willing to purchase this even at half the price. You are loosing yourself Motorola. Please think and care for your customers.

  • Using since 10 months and I am completely agree with you opinion here......

  • Been a user of this phone for almost 19 months and i should say.. i am a satisfied user. Over this time , i tried custom roms from xda and none of them give a good camera support and thus came back to stock rom. The thing i hate about this phone is its arm 32 and thus, doesn't support google cam. But the specs show capability of having arm 64. Another main issue is the lack of dual volte. Moto developers are unable to fix this even in 2019. I heard the upcoming pie update will also have the same issues. Shame!!! Poor support, lack of updates.. didn't expect this from moto. Camera is average. Take pretty decent pics in daylight. In night, i am amazed with the front camera's dynamic range. Battery is also an average. It takes about 1 and half hours to chage it to 95+ and can last a day with moderate use. But for heavy gamers like eg pubg, have to charge 2 or even 3 times a day. But can't complain as it is so lite weighted and thin. Its absolutely good looking in total. For the display, the big bridges and chins are mess. I really don't regret in buying this as this was a classy in it's time. In 2019 , it is really outdated. I am gonna change this phone soon for redmi k20. Liked the full screen and better cam + better battery backup.

  • I've seen it x times @ amazon and other forums: people complaining about Moto line: slows down, lagging, battery problems. Here is the solution for everyone: 1. allow updates only when you desperately need them. many times they add up more junk. patching OS is always a dirty stuff. 2. do not use originally enclosed super charger. why? it kills battery. buy a decent charger like those of Nokia or Samsung. that's all. 2 little tricks.

  • We should have Pie by the fall. It's not something that we should rush.

  • My brother too hasn't gotten an update on his Z2 play from Verizon yet to android pie so I think it's something Motorola should consider and pay attention to.


  • My Motorola Moto Z2 Play did not get android pie why?

  • Sorry, but this phone is not IP dust/water certified. Try to keep it dry and clean, if at all possible, or it likely will short out.

  • GSMARENA mentioned in specifications Moto z2 play upgradable to pie but update not come in phone. Please suggest how I can upgradable to pie

  • Nope.

  • Did the camera improve on the oreo update?

  • I wish I would have read these reviews before getting talked into it at Verizon. I absolutely hate this phone and now I am locked into a contract paying monthly. This phone is not even worth using for free. Never will I go with a Moto again.

  • I absolutely agree. I can't even type as I'm texting. Worse than a blackberry

  • moto releasing flop mobiles these days too expensive n not worth buying g series still stuck on 636

  • Try this Push and hold power button until phone switch off and restart. Android phones need to be restarted every 5-6 days to work properly. And try to factory reset the phone.

  • I been using since 2017 . So far the was good , untill this week its start to hang & cannot unlock . Any 1 know about this problem , can pls tell me what 2 do .

  • I have had four of these in a short amount of time because they are such garbage! I had to get them replaced. Absolutely hands down the worst telephone I have ever had in my entire life. Total garbage! Freezes up constantly. Shuts off when I send a text. The camera is also not able to zoom in without going blurry.

  • Why m i not finding wifi and miracast/Screen mirror connectivity from my smartphone Moto Z2 play XT1710-10 to my Sony LED TV KLV - 43W772E ? Kindly instruct how and what to do .

  • Do not buy this phone! Had the phone less than a year. The first one decided that it wouldn't allow me to lock it within just a few days. This second "new" one turns black if I try to call out or have a call coming in and I can't access the screen until the other person hangs up or if I get their voicemail I have to turn off the phone. What happens if I need to call 911 in an emergency. Also, the second one has a random delay while trying to text. Suddenly the letters are no longer going in and you have to wait for the phone to catch up which is infuriating. These phones are crap and I'm getting rid of this as soon as I can. Horrible phone. Horrible tech service.

  • Waiting to get the update of 9.0 really for a long time

  • Which month Moto z2 play get Android p??

  • Z2 play off course

  • Will be you can work the phone whit root most been apps for that ligth

  • Hi, i need to know what is the exact number of the IP water And dust proof Certificate of This phone for example 68, 57 43 the Number if you can help me with that i be so grateful Thanks And bless

  • This is a great phone. The only failure is that the internal battery died exactly in 1 year.

  • Please dont buy this phone!!! I bought this last Jan 2018. Last May with the New Update, It keeps on restarting. Shut down unexpectedly. Search it on google z2play restarts issue youll find out.

  • moto z2 play....!

  • its great,dont buy chinese phones,they are same crappy

  • 2016 or 2017 u decide

  • Moto Z Play or Z 2 Play , which one is worth buying !!

  • Because chinese phonzs are far better and cheaper than moto

  • 12K???? From weher??????????????????

  • The good part it doesn't affect battery life. How i wish i could get good answer for it.

  • Have the same thing going on with my phone. Idk why it does that, but I've read there are two theories: 1. The front speaker could be broken or it's acting up. 2. When you put the phone to charge, the notification light does that, meaning that the secret notification light has been activated. Wish there was some more info involving this situation.

  • I ned help please,I just got moto z2 play from China(Chinese version ) with global ROM. I have white light constantly on(beside front camera) light never go off when phone is power off..really confusing

  • How long does the battery last? Good or bad?

  • Dont u think that this phone has a superamoled and it is better than the Samsung note 8 bcs i compared it. Only the camera in samsung is good bcs it has great night camera but other than that everything in the Samsung wont be better when we talk about z series performance os too good the display clarity is mind blowing i am a fan of moto bcs they have a best hardware i am a Mobile tech too and i sujest ppl to buy a phone that can withstand water, sudden fall, a fast superb gaming experience, a great theater fr u with ear phones only not with stock speaker it is good, and thn the camera its k it is fine,it also has the great stylish look that no one can provide with this quality, i had a z play a x force a g4 plus and i was really into moto from 2015 that was my first purchase of moto and till now i sujested 50 moto's and they bought it and they loved it and this is a brand that only design shatter sheild phones in this price range it's great but i dont understand why people still buy Chinese phone ur getting a moto fr 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 even z2 play 9999 great.....

  • Bought this phone in early October 2017. It's a pretty good phone, but it's not without flaws. Of which I really only know two. First thing is the fingerprint scanner. I don't know if it's the scanner or just the slow, laggy processor, but this phone has a LOT of issues unlocking the screen with the fingerprint scanner easily. Not to say it WON'T unlock, but it's a headache a LOT. The fingerprint scanner is just really, really, really, really slow to respond when you need it to be fast. Pull it out of your pocket and try to unlock it and it's gonna take a good 4 seconds to register your fingerprint. Otherwise it's going to revert to the swipe pattern as backup. I honestly have no idea what the problem is, but the scanner is often really effing slow to respond. Extremely frustrating. The 2nd issue is the battery. I have a Moto Mod battery on the back, and I charge it wirelessly every night. About a week before the warranty is to end, the battery has begun to bloat/swell and it's pushing the screen of the phone away from the back of it. I know bloat is not uncommon for smartphone batteries, but this is happening inside of a year. I'm not sure if I'll be getting another Motorola phone. It's a shame because I love having ridiculous battery life (combined with the mod). I like how if the battery gets degraded, you can just swap a $30 Mod on and have about the same battery capacity again. If the OEM battery were user-replaceable, I could easily forgive the laggy responding sensors.

  • I bought it yesterday and installed all available updates: I observed, for 1st year motorola given monthly updates. After 1 year they kept this handset in quarterly update cycle. Now its running Oreo with August security patch. Battery life & screen & speed are awesome. Sound amplification is also too good. Speaker volume is 8/10. Camera 6/10. It will recieve 9.0 version for sure. But after 9.0 update, i think there wont be any software support further. Not even quarterly security patches. Still at 12k this is the best viable option.

  • It's a steal in 12k. Go for it.

  • This is by far, the worst phone I've ever had. It's been replaced, & this is no better. You can hardly hear the volumn, all the way up, even with speaker on. It's always just stopping, the only good thing about this phone is the battery

  • i have seen that the g6 plus has the 630 it's has a better chip, the camera has a depth sensor so that's the only different thing that's different about the camera.

  • Moto Z2 Play or G6 Plus, especially in terms of camera quality, what do you think???

  • Hope the update fixes my conectivity issues. Wifi isn't 100 percent and Bluetooth to my car is unusable. Will keep the phone to try the P update.

  • Z2 play will get Android pie

  • May you suggest some or provide link

  • May you suggest some or provide link

  • Yes,It attracts scratches. There are some products available to protect the lens.

  • Don't worry about the outdoor visibility. Its great

  • Is back camera glass easily scratchable like moto z play? is it require some protection or can use barely?

  • Is the screen really that bad outdoors? The review says it's less bright than Galaxy J5

  • Its not water resistant. Just spash resistant.

  • It is not water resistant like it states. My stopped after getting a little moisture on the screen while working out. Needless to say it turned off and will not come back on. Not Happy at all.

  • Is it worth to buy new moto z2 play now for 12.5k INR/(approx 180$). What chance it would be eligible for Android P as was launched on Android nougat and should get 2 major os update

  • HA! Whatever....

  • POS = Piece of S@!T, 1st phone lasted 4 months, battery failure, cutting off problems, replaced under warranty, 2nd phone lasted 2 months - screen dislodged, black screen couldn’t answer phone, now on 3rd phone after 6 months we’ll see how this one does I’m very disappointed avoid this one.

  • No problems so far. I bought this phone (4gb ram ver) and I just love it. It never froze even playing Fate Grand Order. Updated it to Android 8.0 without anyproblems. Camera is amazing, it's video recording at 60FPS is just charming. WAY too light, but any mod you add to it makes it a bit heavier. It came with the JBL speaker. I LOVE IT. 9/10 expected better front camera but I am not a fan of selfies

  • At least it still has a headphone jack (unlike the Z3 play) and is 6mm thin.

  • Phone is a piece of junk. Laggy Freezes non stop. always restarts. a very underpowered phone. feels like a 2010 android phone for its lousy speed

  • I had the same issues once mine went below like 70% tried everything but ended up sending it back for a replacement because I was having other issues as well and it was still under warranty. My replacement has issues I hate this phone.

  • Moto z2 play get portrait mode in future

  • I didn't see the Oreo upgrade pls any idea??

  • Awesome Experience with Oreo Update...

  • Oreo is available for Z2 Play now. You can check to update OTA.

  • What about Oreo, will get it or not???

  • Do the hard reboot.. hold the power button for atleast 10-15seconds and you'll be fine after, i mean your batt will be fine

  • What do you mean by that?

  • What`s it like the camera in this model, is it fast, is it taking good photos, what do you think, guys??? Thank you...

  • Face unlock and software based portrait feature

  • It might sound weird, Recently I update my phone to OREO but from last couple of days the phone battery is draining so fast even on Standby . What can I do to fix that? and also is there any way to get the same old android version now?

  • Just today I update Android Oreo 8.0 .So far untill now I'm using this smartphone from last year September , no problem at all .

  • worst phone ever,sorry,dont disagree, i had before moto z play first one,been superb phone,this one battery runs out faster,but not bad,camera shooting not good photos,not any sharpness,slow shots, then app for photos,google is rubbish,glitch phone,crazy,just dont wan to trow in bin couple hundred pounds. and factory reset not help any, any oder ideas ? bin ? or ......

  • I have a Motorola Z2 play. I bought it in January. Since March it's been giving me problems. The phone shuts down Everytime the battery level falls below 80%. Please help anyone.

  • Please improve the Moto Z2 play camera by a software update

  • Anyone tried substratum?

  • No wifi problems with mine.. try factory reset bro

  • No

  • Pls don't update Oreo, battery life is good but wifi hotspot is not working

  • Best Camera Of Phone In This Universe

  • Do they give add-ons like additional lens, JBL sound booster, projector along with the box ?

  • Airtel Volte is not support in my phone

  • Upgraded to oreo. I think performance is enhanced. Not much useful additional features. Just rearrangement of everything in settings. Can't find picture in picture mode. The main reason for my update is because for substratum theme engine. But it sucks. In substratum , need to download another app andromedia for payment from play store. I managed to download it's cracked apk. But can't activate it. But using another downloaded theme which change settings ui and notification bar ui at the cost of minor bugs. Can't say anything about battery as of now. Camera ui changed from playstore update. Some people commented that "ok Google" voice detection is gone. But it's still there with new feature. Now the voice detection detects both ok Google and hey google.

  • There the voice over lte, voice over wifi is unavailable

  • Yes

  • Heard that "ok google" voice detection is not available in oreo. Is it right?!!!

  • Dial *#*#4636#*#* Click phone information Swipe down and look for volte option

  • Try factory reset bro..

  • Volte option unavailable?! Anyone using jio??

  • I cannot find the volte option in my Moto z2 play

  • There is a problem with call drop, while we are on call phone will hang anytime

  • I have also same problem

  • Their is some issue related to photo editing whenever I try to change user profile pic from notification panel or toggle drop-down it shows error cannot edit on 7.1.1 I use to keep same pic but on Oreo I can't...

  • After Oreo update the Volte option is vanished and also "OK Google" option is not on.

  • I think it's unusual.

  • I was severly injured by my motorola Z2 play. Im sure it was a freak accident, I hope anyway. I am wondering if anyone else has had any problems similar to mine. The sound got very loud and tendral like stuff went thru my ear all the way to my tongue. The company had an evaluation done and will not release the original results. They claim it is classified.

  • Any one have camera lens moving problem in mobile twist time.

  • My Moto Z2 Play camera lens is moving when I shake my phone.

  • This phone or A5 2017?

  • Is it worth to upgrade to oreo? I m happy with 7.1.1 .. don't wanna mess my phone with buggy update. Waiting for the complete review

  • Just now the oreo update is installed in my phone and I see some bugs.Battery drain problem and also the picture in picture mode is not working.

  • First time my oreo update is not installed but second time the oreo update is installed in my phone and the phone runs smoothly.But camera quality is same and the camera is just above average

  • Oreo is just awesome with extended battery life and many more features

  • I downloaded the 1190mb oreo update and I tried to install it. But the oreo update installing is failed. So my phone still running on 7.1.1.

  • Anyone tried oreo? Any bugs? How is the batter backup after update..?

  • Finally oreo released in india

  • Got Oreo . India

  • I finally went ahead and bought the phone. For people that want a mid-ranger with a decent camera there are very few choices.

  • I use the phone for a week now. There has been only one case with battery drain and I had to reboot the phone to fix it. It could however be one of the apps I was using. Otherwise the standby drain of the phone is very good, and about 1%/hour with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled and positioning at high precision. I easily get two days between charges. The phone should easily last a full day on heavy usage.

  • Go to Settings > More > Mobile Network settings > Access Point Names Tap on the '+' sign on the upper right corner. Than create a new APN profile with the following parameters: Name: Jio APN: jionet APN Protocol: IPv4/IPv6 APN roaming protocol: IPv4/IPv6 Bearer: LTE Leave all the other options as they are. Then save this APN profile from three dots on the upper right corner. Choose this profile now and restart your phone. I hope it works for you. I got this working in my phone and this is accepted solution on Moto Forums.

  • I suggest go for moto z play. z2 play was not an impressive release thats why i didnt upgrade and stick to the moto z play. i hope moto z3 play will be a good one.

  • My experience is totally different. It never crashed for me and the software is very responsive.

  • You should install flash notification. It's using the flashlight to substitute the led notification absence

  • The S/W is very buggy and the phone crashes frequently, after-sales is absent, Don't buy this one !!!

  • I *love* their accessories, but while Snapdragon and Adreno are the right (!) choice, their devices are too weak; the hardware too old. No Oreo 8.x with A/B partition and no Treble, so no chance to install vanilla Android. Can't buy. :(

  • Not liking that text message doesn't repeat tone when message hasn't been read. I miss many texts unless I am sitting right on the phone. No settings to make this happen.

  • I'm interested in purchasing Z2 play, let me know whether the standby drain issue has been fixed.

  • Bro z play was a battery king. I said z2 play has better battery as compared to other brands even with 3500mah+ battery.

  • I have been this mobile for 5 months & I never noticed any lag or battery failure. I am satisfied with the mobile. Changed from Samsung A5..

  • Well, one needs only to check the Endurance Rating on this site and compare it to Z Play. The latter is miles ahead (or one day ahead to be precise).

  • 3000mah of this phone gives u much better battery backup than other brand phones with 3500 to 4000mah capacity. Moto z series are well known for software optimisation and battey backup

  • After a lot of thinking, I refrained from buying this one BECAUSE of the moto mods. The only ones that seem truly useful are the battery enhancers and perhaps the gamepad. All the rest I have seen are as bulky as carrying an additional device, and could do the same job with a Bluetooth connection. All would be well if moto mods did not cost the Z2 play its entire design. Besides the awkward pinouts, the phone's battery was chopped to 3000mAh in order to make it thin enough to hold the mods. A curved back (like the great Moto G2) would give the phone much better looks, handling and another half-day in battery life. If this came with a 4000mAh battery it would simply be the best upper mid-ranger. It is a shame.

  • Hi I'm in between Z2play and Z Force , please suggest which I have to buy

  • Its with SIM, try another one. You are fine :)

  • z2 play faster LTE, faster speed by 20%, will get amdroid P. z play longger battery life, oreo is the end support

  • Go for Z2 play .. better in all aspects except battery

  • Hallo Guys, I am torn between this one and Z Play.. Now I've gotten an Offer regarding Z Play: 3 Months old, like New (no scratches etc.), Single SIM, INCLUDING MotoMod ExtraBattery, Price: € 199 (ca. $ 250) - what do you think? No Recommendations regarding phones from other Brands, please, since I am a lifelong\die-hard Motorola Fan (starting with Startac 130, the coolest Phone ever) 😀 Thanks in advance!

  • Yes. Fone works well after updating.

  • Received security update of 74mb for February. Anyone else have it? Any bug fixes?

  • Hi, in my Motorola z2 play I am facing Jio sim issue and not able to call any number in roaming while internet is working fine. I purchased a new jio sim from roaming area and its working fine in same handset. If someone has same issue and resolution kindly share.

  • Hi, love the fhone but facing issue with jio sim in roaming. Not able to make calls "call failed" message showing every time while internet is running fine. 4G symbol gone in roaming thats why not able to connect any call. If someone has same issue and resolution kindly share immediately. Had talkes to jio care and also spent around 3 hrs in Motorola service center , they flashed my phone but issue still persists.

  • Just received one. Great phone in every respect. Love the battery life. Easy to view graphics

  • I want to buy the Z2 even if its London use,I'll buy I'm in Maiduguri. Plz friends help me to get it.. On Facebook (battalion tracker) God bless you all

  • Take a look at "FrontFlash Notification"

  • How to enable front flash notification?

  • Hi RG, I strongly suggest you to try wipe cache partition after any update, specially if is a whole new upgrade. I had battery issues before with several devices after upgrades and the solution is always a wipe cache partition, there are several tutotrials on youtube. I actually do it as a preventive practice immediately after upgrading. good luck

  • I've never had any battery issues with any Motorola devices... Must be defective. From experience and opinion, Motorola, has always been superior with battery life.

  • As far as I know, we should be getting the Oreo update for the Moto Z2 Play sometime between Q1 and Q2 of this year. I'm sorry this is not specific but this is all I know.

  • Hi, Anyone that like to purchase Motorola phones should spend sometime on Motorola forums. I have a Moto Z which I bought last year. Few months ago I have upgraded to Android 7.1.1. Battery is now lasting only an hour at the maximum. Please be warned this a world-wide problem and Motorola has no answer for this. Buying Motorola phones with ZERO SUPPORT and each of these phones costing over 20K INR, is totally ridiculous. PLEASE BE EXTRA CAUTIOUS BEFORE PURCHASING Motorola devices.

  • It consumes a lot on standby

  • Looking at about 2.5 hours screen on time over 2 days.

  • Had this phone a couple of weeks, an incentive was the moto style mods. Not a fan of glass/ metal phones so I though a leather/ fabric back piece would be great...Wrong! They dont sit flush with the device, there is a gap at all times, not a good fit one bit. I had high hopes for the battery but that had been disappointing. I charge the phone to 100% at around 11pm, by 7am its 92%. Listen to about an hour of music or radio between 8am & 1pm. battery down to 75%. 40 minute of use at lunch, couple of youtube vids/ light gaming and browsing. im down to 60% at 1pm. By 11pm im at 45%. Not the worst battery ever but not great either. Im looking at changing to a galaxy a5 2017 possibly. Screen, performance, fingerprint sensor are great though.

  • Try frontflash notification and get notified with the front flash instead of the small led u r trying to use.

  • one plus 5 orange cable works in moto z2 play?

  • one plus 5 orange cable works in moto z2 play?

  • The z2 play has a glitchy interface compared to normal button functions on cell phones and the screen cracked in two months use (Motorola models seem extremely fragile since I've had three screens crack in the past year. Samsung lasted me years....)

  • Just has updated security patches for Dec. last nite..from Singapore.thanks n peace.

  • Got the december security patch update of around 73mb yesterday

  • When will OTA OREO update hit the Moto Z2 Play phones???

  • The Moto Z2 play has no front flash light during video call.. how to enable front flash LED light for video call?

  • I don't think its a deal breaker bro. Its like u lose around 5 or 6% at night time and whenever you look the consumption details, one of the first 3 items it show will be standby.

  • Anyone got December security patch? I think motorola lagging to give us updates and still we not got oreo too...

  • Bro little bit of battery drain is there for all Android phones. It's not that much of an issue. For me it's more than 1 and a half day with heavy use.

  • Thank you for writing on the standby battery issue. I have the same problem with Moto Z (1 , not play) I will return it to amazon because of this issue. Wanted to replace it with Moto Z2 play , but now that I know it also got the same issue, I will not buy it.

  • When my Moto Z2 play will update in Android Oreo....?

  • Using it for a month now. Great phone. Amoled display is just awesome. Battery backup is decent. Both cameras are great. There are some cons for the device. Those who are about to buy it should read this. The standby battery drain is a headache for this. Like, when u look the battery consumption details, the first item will be standby. And the fingerprint scanner is a hit or miss . Its like you should always have your fingers clean and dry. If its wet, then all the five attempts of fingerprint will be waste of time. The last security patch update of my phone is november 2017. Moto is lagging in updates. it is having an amoled display , but its colour tone is towards warmer side. If you check it with oneplus 5 , u can understand it easily. Otherwise ,its a great phone . Butter smooth perfomance. I will rate it for 8.5/ 10

  • how to find duel sim feature moto z 2 play?

  • I have been using the mobile for past 2 months. I can't find any laginess or battery complaint. Great work from Lenovo. Best phone I ever used..

  • Great mobile. People use to compare this budget phone with S8 and lg g6 which are flagships. If you want to compare then go with moto z2 which is flagship model.

  • Sorry boss.. U don't know how to use it. Better go to any promoter and learn first. Motorola is not that bad. Far better than Samsung..

  • no good camera iam used

  • How about xt1710-02?

  • My hopes for next year's successor, the Z3 Play: 1. Under-screen fingerprint sensor (upcoming Qualcomm technology, which will then allow for...) 2. Extending the screen to the same (much bigger) surface area as the aluminium/bezel currently visible on the back of the Z2 Play. Would result in a ~5.9" screen in the same external phone dimensions, like the LG V30 or Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. 3. Make the phone that extra 1mm thicker again to allow for the slightly bigger battery (think the original Z Play) Combine these three things with the Moto Mods and we have a spectacular phone that'll make the big names get very worried IMHO.

  • Motorola will be back in few times. Did you check moto x4 ??. Ip68. Try it. Cute and sweet

  • In my phone the cast feature is not working, pls help me, how to enable cast feature becz when I click on cast I don't get any options to enable wireless Display. I tired to download many mirror cast apps but still this feature is disabled for me, pls any 1 can help me on this.

  • Get z2 play. In my opinion a better camera and it still has good battery and aluminium back. So I think u should get z2 play.

  • Actually they use Moto display rather than led light for notifications. U can check in the Moto app.

  • Hello guys, I need your help... I have the XT1710-09 Z² Play Nougat 7.1.1 with Turbo Power Pack moto mod, in total of 6490mah battery machine.... I achieve 50+ hours of operating time with single fully charging. But the LED lights are not working... Should I have to wait the OREO update, or is there a practical solution for it? I tried several led light apps, but it didn't work.. Thanks all!

  • Waiting Oreo update..

  • Motorola phones are good. Their mid range and high-end models are long lasting..

  • Lenovo's purchase of Motorola is like Tata acquired Jaguar .. Moto phones are very good and now got even better when Lenovo take over it. Especially the camera dept.. The slow motion mode is perfect !!!!!! I am enjoying every moment of the phone. Brilliant !! Cheers Lenovo....

  • Hi guys! Need yr advice: I'm about to get a moto z,but cannot decide between zplay and zplay2. Long battery life is very important to me but I also want latest technology. Since one can expand battery life with a mod would be the Zplay2 the better choice? Thank you very much.

  • What class of memory card you use for external storage? Are you use sandisk or any other brand of memory card?

  • I am using z2play since august... All i can say : AMAZING PHONE... very useful one motion... Great camera (even with only 5 mp at front cam, the pict i 'd taken was fabulous, even in the lowlight).. battery is awesome... Screen is great, have a real image showed on... I ve been used iphine, samsung, oppo, and LG, NEVER Found anything so beautiful as this one... one excellent phone....

  • If you have that much of money go with the 5t better processor and more snappy, but there's also nothing wrong with saving some money and buying the z2 play has a better feature moto motion etc and better speakers (its just my opinion)

  • Do you know about moto mods ?? It's been a great experience with the camera and projector mode. Just see you tube. Honor 6x is nothing in front of z2play !!!!

  • hello, guys I have a question according to the camera which phone is better honor6x or z play?

  • I am waiting for z3 play which is a hot rumor at present. I am sure it too will be a strong candidate to others. Using zplay now.

  • speed but depend on SoC alone, 1plus manage to low cost because only SoC is premium, go to z force performance and you find even display load ¼lighter, carry 2gb more of RAM than, but fail defeat Zforce. Motorola z2play is much better

  • Nice device bro. Battery + camera + performance. I am enjoying this device. Go a head. The purchase won't disappoint U. Best value for money product.

  • I prefer to choose the Moto Z2 play cause this phone have moto mods

  • Which phone is best in mid range among x4? moto z2 play? oneplus 3t? your opinions would be helpful to me to buy the best.

  • If you have that much of money go with the 5t better processor and more snappy, but there's also nothing wrong with saving some money and buying the z2 play has a better feature moto motion etc and better speakers (its just my opinion)

  • Thanks bro.. I bought this mobile. I am really really satisfied with the mobile. Battery backup is excellent. And I like the slow motion mode of the camera. Great work. Brilliant Lenovo !!

  • Im thinking of buying phone. But im not sure if it is durable and has a good quality of camera. Any suggestions would be appreciated . Im a heavy phone user . I usually use my phone for my everyday stuff emails, messenger social media etc. . I take a lot of pictures and i always use my phone to download movies .I also play a lot of games on the side while im downloading movies and playing music. The last phone (lgv10) that i had hanged and i cannot turn it on anymore. It also has heating problems . My question Is this durable enough for my everyday phone use. And if i play games will i have enough smooth gaming experience.? and does the quality of the camera can be compared to a dslr ones. And can this capture clear details of the image. Thanks for anyone who will answer :)

  • Plz suggess,, who is the best phone moto z2 play or moto x4??

  • What !! How can you compare moto phones with one plus ????!!!!!!! Have you ever used moto phones ? It's amazing....

  • Obviously Oneplus 5T

  • Moto Z2 play surely.. U will find a great all-rounder of all time till now. 👍👍

  • Moto Z2 Play or Moto Z Play?

  • Motoz2 play or oneplus 5t which should i buy

  • 3000mah should be decent. You probably have a lot of background processing. You might want to deactivate some of these processes - those that are not important.

  • moto z2 play good camera .iam used 6 months no problem

  • s7 edge , best among other devices

  • I bought my z2 play from Bajaj phones charging hardly coming a day.pls suggest me what to do.and I am not a heavy user.pls reply me how I can improve my phone's battery.

  • What should i get as my daily driver in 2018? Moto Z2 play, S7 edge or iPhone 6S? and Why? Thanks in Advance.. :)

  • Oh my word.... Surprised with the battery life !!!! I am a heavy internet user. Still can manage up to 1 and a half day. Smooth and fluidic.....

  • Best phone ever... Very thin and user friendly.. great batery life, never charge it twice a day, sometimes i even still had 40-50% after 24 hrs.... Great metal build... Awesome camera... Good job moto..

  • Moto z2 play camera not good.

  • i am the user of moto Z2 play best phone i suggest go for it

  • Thank you for your response but can you give specific reasons why this model is better than XA1 PLUS in terms of specs comparison

  • Go a head with moto Z2 play. Coz the support is way better than Sony. U can't compare moto Z2 play with Sony in any case.

  • To the existing users,Please guide me between XA1 PLUS vs Moto Z2 play from The Oreo update,camera,battery ,audio/volume & performance point of view as they both fall in same price brackets & 4gb dual sim models

  • Patient, maybe early next year, so far only sony has orea & 1+, but 1+ far stable from moto & sony

  • So you have both? Is it worth upgarade?

  • VERY GOOD PHONE, LOVE THE BATTERY LIFE. my main gripe is that it is slick and hard to hold onto, pretty much like most of the other phnes out there. A case from otter box or spec is not an option, it's mandatory. And of course with a case on it's not practical to use any of the moto mods. Not a real problem because other cheaper and better add on options are available if you need them (I don't). But why hasn't one of the phone manufacturers come out with a phone that doesn't need an add on case? Take an otterbox or spec case and build it into the phone? I think it would sell in spite of looking bad on the spec comparison charts for weight and dimensions.

  • 70 inch with HAD clarity is a great found. Hats off moto !!!! Proven battery life and tremendous all rounder. I am really satisfied with the beast.

  • Already made purchase with Flipkart. Awesome mobile. Stock Android experience. No lags !!!! Amazing battery.

  • I have been using the mobile for past 2 months. Z2 play is an improvement from zplay. The battery compared to zplay is less. But very good battery life !!!! Amazing speed.... An all rounder in all aspects. Great launch.

  • Owsm camera! A huge jump from zplay

  • Soon

  • Even if it is owned by Lenovo they didn't done many customisations. It's just the same device at least for now. Great battery life !!!! Excellent device. U can go for it. No need of worry

  • Z2 play, better camera(in my opinion), better battery life, performance it's almost the same, for daily usage you wouldn't notice any difference.

  • This phone is just osm 😎😎😎

  • Do they cover earphone (Which was with the device) warranty ? . Its been 4 months for this device .?

  • Brilliance shown !! Great work Lenovo. This is a very good mobile. No lags, good camera & yes it is a value for money product..

  • the only difference i can see is for the mods and minor features .better buy a g5s plus.. The price of a z2 in my place is about 550usd, a g5s plus is at 350usd, 'reason I bought moto z2 was I got a refurbished at 400 usd .

  • Is Moto Z2 Play Day Dream Ready?

  • When will Moto z 2 play will get Oreo update in India?

  • They are trying the old stock !!!. But we should be careful... Now this brand owned by Lenovo as Lenovo Zuk Z2 Plus. Now Moto Z brand. The worst thing is GUI ZUI 2.5.104. Hope Lenovo will not customize the default setting of Oreo in the next coming Moto Z version based on QualCom Snap Dragon 845 with adreno 630 or Mali G72 MP12 OR Snapdragon 835 with adreno 540.

  • Z has better specs than Z2. wtf are phonemakers going backwards for? smartphones nowdays are just plain stupid.

  • Mi mix2 or motoz2play

  • Moto Z. Higher quality (because it is a flagship) and much faster processor, SD 626 is somewhat of a disappointment

  • By moto z 2 is beter than moto z

  • is this water and dust proof?

  • When will roll out official Android Oreo 8.0 for Moto Z2 play .....????

  • Thank you so much.... I had selected it as ext storage due to which all this was happening now it's absolutely fine after selecting it to phone storage thank you....

  • Are you storing photos & videos on an ext sd card? If so try using the internal storage. Memory cards are notoriously unreliable and unpredictable. If not that then check for unfriendly apps that may have memory leaks or bad network code. Reboot and then force stop everything you can. Check if the issue continues. Uninstall everything you can and check again. If you still have a problem, you could have a hardware problem.

  • No OIS, not Great battery life like Moto Z Play

  • Just picked up this phone on weekend and can't get enough of it. For the price it's hard to beat, just cuz of fast and clean android and the Moto Mods that really make the phone to stand out! All my friends are jealous of the TurboPower battery mod, as it makes your life 100 times better. I work long shift and usually had to charge phone during the day from a wall, but now it's times easier. I love it. Would recommend it to anyone. Don't think or decide between this or anything else in this price point. Take this and I guarantee you won't be disappointed. It's fast, camera is good, takes good pictures in 9 of 10 times and the Moto Mods are is such a great thing, that when you switch to other phones, you really start to understand how good of an idea that is. Very sad that Motorola has a small market share in Europe and their phones are not sold with carriers and plan payments like Samsung and other phones. This is my 2nd Motorola device and I simply love it, people don't know what they are missing out!

  • Hi guys anyone is facing camera issues with this phone, for me it hangs if I take three to four shots continuously and also the slow motion camera starts but when I stop it won't stop and it hangs.. Anyone facing the same issues with camera ????

  • A phenomenal cell phone. For less money than a developed Samsung or Iphone. Otherwise the S6 samsung came to Moto z2 play and it was awesome !!!!!! Modes have also taken and are still cheaper than these models. Fluid and an ingredient just so!

  • Moto family does not support any Screen casting out of box like Samsung. basically dosnt support miracast. if you are keen in getting screen mirroring i would suggest MI BOX 3 which has built in Google cast support + 4K support. Else u can go for a Cromecast also. Only with 2 devices you will be able to screencast using moto phones.

  • its a suparb phone

  • Moto z2play

  • I bought this phone on 31 August and it's display broken but it shows in all website that moto z2 play comes with corning gorilla glass 3. Now anyone tell me what can I do

  • how is the audio quality?

  • Its normal bro coz its supports turbo charging of 15 watts

  • Buy motorola.. Thousant times better than oppo nd vivo

  • guys, do you recommend me to buy this guy z2?

  • probably moto z2, better chipset upgradable to oreo. I personally prefer Super Amoled over IPS LCD.

  • Guys.. I need ur help.. Moto z and Z2 play both cost same in India right now.. which one should I go?

  • Perfect phone in all sense. No need to discover on this before u purchase. Only con I found is selfie camera is decent but not as perfect as my Sony C5. If this doesn't matter just buy blindly. Processor sd626 is very fast and don't understand the need of better processors. I am a heavy user and fully satisfied.

  • Yes it can they were just annouced that it can upgrade to oreo

  • Motoz2play or vivov7+ which should i buy

  • Is it possible to upgrade this phone on OREO?

  • well , no doubt this one got a good spec with decent performance , moreover the other phones u mentioned are lead performers in their court like status , looks, performance etc..

  • The Redmi Note 4 is a terrible phone. Crackling on calls, buggy behaviour and zero toughness. It got fried beyond repairs in my jeans during a heavy downpour. My OnePlus One fell in a bucket of water and survived with nearly no damage.

  • This phone is pretty much perfect. Super fast fingerprint reader. Phone is super fast for all tasks. Motorola really optimized the file system for speed. This thing has no lag. It's much faster than my v10 and still faster than my HTC 10. I thought I would be bothered by the camera bump but in normal use, but I never even notice it. Battery life. I don't ever have to think about my battery because it's that good. Moto mods. I have yet to try them out but I have the jbl speaker and the car dock on the way and I am super excited about the car dock. Power and Audio without plugging in cords makes me happy. Also happy that I don't have to have some weird clip holding the phone that gets in the way of using the screen. Picture quality is actually really decent. I don't miss the HTC 10 quality for pictures. This comes close enough. The auto focus is quite fast. Low light pictures are pretty nice too. This doesn't have OIS but I have a steady hand. It might be a concern for those who do not have a steady hand trying to take a picture in low light. The one hardware thing that would make this phone perfect would be if they used the Snapdragon 660 CPU. This way it would have Wifi AC, Aptx, and the Hexagon DSP for hdr+ photos. If they chose this slightly better processor, this really would have been a flagship killer for me. That said, I am planning to also buy a LG V30 because it's probably going to be the best phone ever made thus far. --edit-- I do have one software gripe. I had a moto x and a moto droid turbo 2. Both had the moto display always on display feature. The old implementation made so much more sense and worked much better. I don't really like using the new one.

  • I use this mobile when it launch best phone ever I use in my live I use Samsung S7 edge , iPhone 6s plus and lg g5 but this phone is more and more better than all

  • I'm using z2 play from last 5 days. Heating problem while charging.

  • Does anyone play Heroes of Incredible Tales on this cell phone? How is the game going? 1. runs slow? 2. the phone heats up?

  • Best battery puuufff try the Moto Z play with 3510mah the king of autonomy... The Z2 play is garbage

  • Lol you kidding, this phone has best battery than all phone I've ever had And about the camera , I just love this phone camera , f/1.7 very bright , tips: try not shake your hand when shooting , for hdr don't move phone too fast after press shutter

  • The battery is awesome... First of all i thought it would be disappointing compare to z play 1st gen (3510mah), but i was wrong.... Heavy usage can last more than a day... I use it for socmed, gaming, photograph, and watch YouTube. . Never overheat... Most of the time after 30 hours i can still have 20-30% battery... And its quick charging, so juat take a bath and when u ready to go, so does your z2 play

  • Yes there is a LED notification but it's only work when mobile charging in switch off mode and you trying to turn on your mobile. You need to root use it as notification.

  • I m using this device since 10 days ...its amazing battery...very heavy usage gives one full day

  • Love the 5 MP selfie cam. Quality is good and it performs more like a 8 MP. Colors are very rich and beauty mode is done nicely without being over the top.

  • And what about battery

  • it is avilable in nepal or not

  • It has no Led Notification, and neither it's needed, the "Glance Screen" like thing works much better.

  • So far.. front camera is satisfying... For me... Hehehe For 5MP , its quite excellent, brilliant results, pees joise and have same profesional function camera...

  • What about front camera

  • I have a moto z the regular z all I can say is that everything is perfect for my needs, gamming surfing etc. design is awesome so unique and that look makes me say "oohhhhhmmmm" so nice in the hand and the camera with OIS is so so so awesome. No heating at all even I play heavy games, modularity is the one that I need and this is the right phone for me. from g, e, x and now the moto z been using this brand sense high school days. :D

  • Just have moto z2 play recently and the gift box. Awesome... Had been using samsung and iphone , LG, oppo... What i love about this phone : 1. So thin and elegant 2. Unusual design 3. Great battery life 4. Functional fingerprint, none of other phone made things like it 5. Great camera 6. Very easy to use 7. Great display 8. Never overheating 9. Moto style shell is easy to place on, again, never found anything like it 10. Too many advantage i cant stop writing, hehehe.. Love this phone...

  • I have Moto z.good but high heating.All Moto phone have heating problem.

  • Motorola is designed in Brazil, software made in the USA and the product is made by Flextronics in China. It is not made by Lenovo. It's made by Motorola Mobility. They are 2 different companies still. Newer Lenovo smartphones are made by Motorola Mobility too (Lenovo K8 Note). It says so on the box.

  • You can get the mods at

  • yes

  • Asus zenfone 3 zoom super camera ever front camera super selfie 5000mah insane battery power..

  • Did we get mods??

  • led notification??

  • Does this phone have miracast/screen mirroring enabled in stock rom? I am considering buying the z2 play or z2 force.But I heard that on z play, Moto disables this feature and we have to edit buil.prop to enable it.

  • One plus 5, Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom or Motorola Z2 Play ? I need camera and batery.

  • A few reasons to purchase the Moto Z2 play. Currently I own the Moto Z Force, Turbo 2 and Google Pixel XL. 1. The new Moto Z2 Play's fingerprint scanner now functions as a "one button navigation". It took an hour or so to really get used to it but its now a feature I don't want to be without. 2. Moto display is super efficient right from the lock screen allowing me to voice text back without leaving the lock screen! Changing Music and responding to any other notification is quick, easy and it's now in color with just one touch. This feature alone is unique to second gen Moto's and a must have. No other phone maker has the ease and functionality of Z2 Play. Yea Samsung has a "type" of Moto display but you can't do anything with it except look at it. Useless. 3. With normal usage and 4.5 hours of screen on time I was able to go 44 hours without recharging. Smaller battery is fine with me if it keeps this up. I turned my phone on this morning at 8:30 a.m. and at 6 p.m. I am at 76% battery. Awesome. 4. Moto Actions like chop chop and double twist are features that make Moto so much more user friendly then my Pixel XL. Don't get me wrong the Google Pixel XL is nice and has all the specs that people look for but it's nowhere near as user friendly as Moto and the Pixel is now back in the box in storage. I hate it and wish I never bought it. Moto all the way. 5. Super thin, feels great in the hand. Amazing Phone! 6. Moto Mods! Love them or hate them they are only getting better. I love my Moto Z2 Play and I've found none better. Great Job Motorola. Thank you for making this phone so easy to use.

  • Recently wayyyyyyy back on 2008 or 2009. LOL oneplus enter the android world way back on 2014. make some sense

  • LOL innovation? they change the screen aspect ratio and that's innovation? don't be a fanboy here is L.G and SAMSUNG capable of making modular phone? no doubt the G5 fail.

  • USA made brand? Last time I checked Motorola was owned by a Chinese company and made their phones in China

  • Innovation? Where? Nothing about this is new besides for the camera. Old processor, old design, old display. If you're talking about a "new era" this isn't the right place, go to the G6 or S8 pages. That is true innovation.

  • Oneplus 3T costs 28k and so does z2 play! While oneplus is a newer brand which i agree but since moto phones are produced by lenovo(chinese as well) which also entered the android phone market recently, yu can't accuse oneplus of being chinese and new! And if yu are referring to oneplus 5 of being priced at 33k then yu should go and check the specs for yourself cause give yu latest features like Snapdragon 835 with 6gb ram and Bluetooth 5.0 and ufs 2.1 storage etc. So check your sources and do your study well sir before yu accuse anything!

  • Moto was a reputed brand at one point but it's just lenovo producing phones under name of moto with google's face and software! Lenovo is as chinese as oneplus is so yu can't say oneplus is chinese and Moto isn't cause both are android and manufactured by china!

  • Moto was a USA brand i suppose but now moto phones are made by lenovo which is a chinese brand. The brand name moto which is purchased by Google is just a name now! Since google provides the software and lenovo produces the phones so there is moto left there except for the brand's face value!

  • Z2 play

  • perfect phone innovation new era

  • So bad z 2 Battery life. Bad

  • The price is way too much... At this price you have several other options available..does Motorola seriously thiks that it's customers choose the z2 for its Moto mods????

  • samsung S8 has a 3,000 mAh battery not 5,000 lol

  • Why the smaller Battery Moto? I'd rather give back the 1mm thickness removed to get back the 500mAh battery back.

  • fine gold (white gold)

  • Nope, the chip on J7 Pro is weaker!

  • J7pro is better than moto z2 play

  • You got me Motorola.. I've just pre-ordered to change my old nexus 5, hope I'm making good choice

  • In Moto z2 play , SBI life smart advisor app is not open . Kindly rectify

  • is 5p fornt camera good enough in low-light? and is moto z2 play will service fast after 1year?

  • both sim are 4g supported go for it ouch is too soft and camera quality is good but note that you wont be getting mods with phone u have to pay separate for that. at last this phone value for money.

  • Does this phone support 4G and 3G simultaneously as a dual sim? I know it is dual standby, but I am curious if the 2nd sim is using 3G or 2G. With the shutdown of 2G, a dual sim phone that doesnt have 4G and 3G is useless.

  • let me correct u sir MOTO WAS A REPUTED BRAND THANKS

  • One plus is a china phone Motorola is USA made brand

  • Moto is a reputed brand like Samsung, Nokia .. One plus have recently gained popularity, so not all people know One plus .. Also, Moti Z2 is giving in 26K almost what One plus is giving in 33K.. except RAM and dual rear camera .. chk specs .. it's expensive

  • Moto Z2 play .. no doubt ..

  • Pros + Battery backup : On 3000 mAh, it gives good battery backup. 24 hr for avg user. + Turbo : 50% charge in 20 min + Look and design + Fingerprint sensor : Nice customisation from Moto in Fingerprint sensor. You can operate the phone with this sensor, no other back, home and more options button required. Hence u'll get full screen like iPhone. + Fast : Moto has done good optimisation, no lag .. good RAM usage + Camera : Good rear camera + front camera with flash Cons - Heats up while turbo charging - Type C charging .. this is not so common yet - Expensive mods (this is common for all phones with mods)

  • Which is better between moto x force and moto z 2 play...??? Please guys say something in one word....plz.....

  • Do you even use Moto before? Their hardware quality is 2nd if not top.

  • This isn't an unbranded Moto. The Z line of Motos just came out last year.

  • Buy this only if you want Moto-mods, otherwise just buy Moto G5 Plus, it costs cheaper and has essentially same specifications as this phone.

  • Maybe 4000 was good..

  • Go with premium oneplus not with unbranded moto

  • Which color looks more premium and feel great in hand???

  • Why do you say so??

  • Older version moto z play is better than z2 play , how come??

  • Just buy then fell 5 mp me it's awesome

  • The Verizon version is available for purchase now for $408 + tax. Surely the unlocked version will cost more. I would be interested in one if the unlocked version was no more than $400 after tax, so I'll just wait for a sale.

  • 400eur n 5mp front cam.... wtfmoto

  • overpriced

  • at gsmarena it says moto z ima fm radio, but ... moto z nema fm radio! one here have licenses - gsmarena lies, or lenovo lies ?! or are they both lying ?!

  • After update, lot of issue found there...Pls dont make stupid. I have used One plua 3 for 6 month then i have replaced with Moto Z2 Play

  • Best phone in this proce segment. Slim and look awsome. Very fast and legless processor with 4 GB Ram. Camera is not upto mark but its okay for me. Fast charging as well as.

  • No it will for normal use

  • I'll consider buying it but only with 3490mAh power bank mod. Otherwise it won't last a full day of use.

  • Z2 play support native video call also through jio 4g

  • I had z play now I m using z2 play I had bad experience with z play 1 st issue if u loose sim ejector tools it's very difficult to find another proper terms of build quality its bad it's just fell down from 1 and half feet back panel broke for still pic it was good but for video it's not.performance was good front camera ok battery really good.the Moto mod cover which is provided by Moto it's bad it's make scratches on the back let's talk abt z 2 play.everything in 1 word perfect and good.many people complained Abt battery.let me tell you my review regarding battery.5 hrs on screen and almost 17 hours with 4 g net still battery left 40 percent I think it's not bad charger fast enough .So don't worry Abt battery.yes price difference only 3000 RS in my country but spending 3000 extra get metal body 1 GB extra ram double internal storage front flash dual tone 2.2 GHz processor.go with z2 play u will feel gainer.

  • Oneplus One team was different and this team is different. Cyanogen made Oneplus popular and now chinese investors bank on it.

  • I hate Oneplus

  • Please post a detailed review....arena....I have this phone..

  • Hardware isn't as important as well optimized software. Cheers:)

  • Why would we pay 28k for a SD 626 phone? Let's dump this SHIT and for the beast "ONE PLUS 3T" ..Moto can't fool us by upgrading the price instead of hardware. One plus 3t outperforms this shit everywhere and we can get that beauty almost at the same price. Moto z2 play sucks this time.

  • Don't show your stupidity here.This is a premium device not an affordable one.Redmi is good looking but lacks a better camera and good display.Also a type C and quick charge

  • Is this available in the Philippines?

  • 3000 mah battery z2 play good backup

  • For 28k I can buy a redmi note 4 if i lose it, I can afford another one

  • That's not cheap & borderline expensive. IIRC, the first Z Play was priced RS 25K when released.

  • best brand about battery timing and protection

  • Just released in India at around Rs 28k

  • Thanks for reply, how about in low light performance of camera, because its lag in optical image stabilization so some peoples was talking about its not good in low lighht or macro shots?

  • The processor is very efficient, I just watched a review that said it get 5.5hrs of screen on time. That's good, but not as good as the original Z Play, which has over 10hours of screen on time with a 3500mAh battery. Lenovo made the battery on this one smaller because the Z Play was too good of a value, they reduced the battery life on this the Z2 Play to force people to buy moto mods.

  • 3000mAh is about all you can get in a phone so ridiculously thin! Thankfully it supports mods, which means you can get the battery mod and have a phone that's still relatively slim but with a huge battery. Then remove the battery mod for days you don't need it, and enjoy a super slim phone. Best of both worlds.

  • Backfingger print not compatible last year mod. Fingger print on power button the one suit, iris scan like on fujitsu. Motorola never copy from sam

  • battery back up?? Because it has only 3000 mah battery with 5.5 inch screen. ..

  • Z2play an excellent phone very nice design performance very fast turbocharger​ some slow.battery back up fine camera 2 are good compair with oppo f3+& Vivo v5+-moto Z2 play is winning....

  • It's so light weight....just 145 grams. Probably the lightest 5.5 inch phone in the market

  • I meant in comparison with Moto G5 plus which is launched recently having similar chipset G5+ 625 Z2play 626

  • This one is cheapest option in modular series. They want people to buy phones for modules and have option of premium and affordable in same series. It was never meant to be a cheaper offer,immaterial of soc used.

  • nice joke

  • It´s seems it dosent haves DUAL BAND WIFI . Why?

  • available in Russia?

  • moto z2 force needs iris scanner display and back side finger print like Samsung s8 with own projector and 5000 mah battery shatter proof water proof dust proof and lots of tips and tricks with a powerfull ram after then everyone love motorola, and now snapdragon 836 is coming samsung note 8

  • Yes we have to buy it seperatly and it's price is very high

  • I know. I was replying to a comment saying Z2 Play's improvement over Z Play was AMOLED display, which is false as both have it.

  • Do v have to buy the mods separately? If yes then Wht would b the price?

  • Z2 play also has amoled

  • Battery should have been at least 7000mah on this device

  • Which LTE? Cat 6 or Cat 4

  • overprice price should be 23k

  • Sorry, this comment apply to Z Play, not Z2 Play.

  • A bit appealing but . . . with high price it loose the glitter to slip on back burner.

  • The original Z Play uses AMOLED display.

  • It has FM radio which is something the first Z series didn't include.

  • Ridiculous pricing. Only serious improvement is AMOLED display and price is up by Rupees 10k. Not worth the price.

  • that back camera has f/1.7 and 1.4 ultra pixel well no ois and wide lens but still that camera kills

  • It should be released in India around 15th June and cost around Rs 28k. Real competition with One plus 3T now.

  • Only package is updated.. Funny moto folks..

  • its oled display

  • It doesnt looks bad but screen is too big for so small battery.

  • can u please small ur size this is too big max size should be 4.5 or 4.7

  • Is it an upgraded version? Well it seems to be a joke. They're gonna upgrade the price instead of hardware.

  • Looks like they got a boat load of the chipset and they are flushing it to all their newer devices, till G5 Plus it was fine, seemed reasonable. There is no upgrade from Z Play on that. Looks like the Indian manufacturing is showing it colors buy anything in large quantities if it is in cheaper price.

  • Moto M is best mobile in all Motorola mobiles...... I like Motorola moto m awesome mobilephone

  • hope this smartphone is not like a motoM, bcoz moto m is west of mony/........

  • waiting for real world tested reviews, endurance, display rating, and important staffs, any hiccups or stuttering. please provide ASAP. instead all opinions are crappy, trolls....

  • It would be a great handset if it didn't have the modular gimmicks, the fingerprint sensor was on the rear and if it had nice sounding and loud dual speakers on the front.

  • Lenovo isn't killing Motorola as others say. This will be great phone. Specs is just normal.

  • Thank you..I will check this one up!

  • My bad here...I knew about those two...I forgot to say except these ones. My gf has the A5 2016.

  • I love Moto Z series but they are way to big for my taste. I wish they made something 5.1 or 5.2 inches with a smaller overall body size galaxy s6 or galaxy s7.

  • just compare it's look. it's as much heavy as iphone or pixel, with stock android.... but at price point comparing to sd626 is a let down offer. but yet, in real world usage it is different and it may come out great winner....for a mid range smartphone. but buying a ph just because it's pretty is a insanely foolish​ idea. ok I have to stop worrying and bloging about this and wait for the experts​ review. ok i am out from here.

  • Lenovo what are you doing what is this ?

  • the same single speaker crap... smaller battery ... FU Lenovo.

  • there is no place for 2nd. only first.... (it's like no room for prisoners only prizes...) hope moto z2 do well...and I am waiting for its buy you folk can pitch me on that, being 499$ is a heavy shit for customers like many of us....but as an daily driver and in real world shit... only the best makes it's history. others just makes it's cover.

  • let's just see who actually wins geeks or folks... companies or customers. generally customers losses a few....they have options to sell them to some no geeks afterall :-P . but this is a pivotal market and companies got billions​ to lose... and many things like reputation and let's see who win in a class of 50 only the best come out 1st.....

  • People this is a real joke from Lenovo Don't waste your hard earned money on this minor upgrade phone. One plus five is launching soon with much much better hardware.

  • Brother even we should not call this as an upgrade It's just a tweaked 625 chipset.

  • Nxt week oppo is launching R11 N yes SD 660 chip is available for manufacturers Geekbench scores are also out n it's awesome.

  • Oppo :-D

  • Design is ok and quality is good.only thing that concern me to buy moto ui need to be better.otherwise phone will be good to buy

  • FINALLY a decent phone from Lenovorola. Kudos for them for not taking off the headphone jack even at 6mm thickness, now that's what I'm talking about.

  • my dear friend oppo R11 is still not announced yet, and Snapdragon 630-660 are not available far production till September 2017

  • Looks so ugly for being a flagship of moto, all thaks goes to new moto owner lenovo. Lenovo gonna kill this company too.

  • it seems trolling on everythin is the new trend for quite a time now.... giving shitty opinions doesn't change anything.... it only makes good things great and bad things worse.. but the fact remains the same.....(moto z2 play is a great deal) on android 7.1.1 platform... after that it will surely lags behind... battery becomes weak, os become unstable, etc etc.... so enjoy your android 7.1.1 nougat on z2 play.... 😀 software company doesn't investment time for old biscuits....only few tweaks...😡

  • moto phone are verry good phons

  • I rather choose Zenfone 3 Zoom.

  • 2 words: moto c

  • moto phones are not a cheap phones anymore

  • 626? seems kind of a joke

  • is this a joke? its pretty much the same phone as the first play, and the first one have a bigger battery that last forever. were is the upgrade beside processor?

  • Last years A5 and A7 from Samsung!

  • The only reason people buy Moto phones coz they are the only one who still usinv Android Stock UI

  • Motorola has gone crazy look oppo they have already used latest Snapdragon 660 for R11. Just imagine the sale of Motorola if they have also used this might new chipset.

  • Besides from the SoC bump up from the SD 625, the larger screen and the Moto Mods, there is nothing that differentiates this from the G5 Plus

  • Asus Zenfone 3, it's got everything to make camera addicts like yourself to orgasm. OIS and EIS, plus Phase Detection and Laser autofocus

  • huawei g8. huawei nova plus. samsung a5 (2016). samsung a7(2016).

  • Thin !! Good Len0vo (moto)

  • marketing!...want OIS?..get the flagship!...Tell me a mid-range with OIS from a well known brand..I'm really looking for that!

  • For me it's a downgrade seriously. Lenovo is trying to kill Moto as soon as possible.

  • Only 3000 mAh?, In my opinion the thinner phones aren't important to me if they have good batteries, in big part the essence of moto z play was the extended battery life

  • Its not available yet for production

  • snapdragon 630 and 660 havr recently announced so its not available in production till August i thing so.

  • Haha yeah. But seriously speaking, yes in ways I agree with you. It would be better with the recently launched SD630 (although the SD626 is no slouch). But yeah for its price point it would be better with the SD630 (or maybe even with the SD660, haha).

  • Why no OIS?? This is not a low-end device. Dear Lenovo, you should include OIS to the Play series.

  • 3000 Mah battery z2 play good nougnt 30% battery saving

  • Do any one know if the back is still glass or it's aluminum now?

  • Whoa! Such a great device. But wait, SD 626? I mean it should be 630 instead? You all agree or not? If no then why?

  • Same here. Best thing in Moto Z play is battery. Never ever I had a smartphone that good in that regard, and they sacrificed it to make phone 1 mm thinner. No deal. Make a 5000mAh Moto Z3 Play, I'll buy. This one - no.

  • Yes you're right. Moto Z play has 3510 mAh battery

  • 3000 mAh + MotoMod , 6mm + battmod ...thats good !

  • Yes, Because there will be a Moto X in between Z2 & Z2 play. Moto X2 will have 3800 mAh, Curved screen with 3D gorilla glass, Snapdragon 660 , Water proof build & 4gb ram

  • I think the moto z2 play is downgrade version of moto z play.Not upgrade version.

  • Will be waiting for Z³ Play to upgrade my current Z Play. If Lenovo messes the 3rd gen of play am seriously done with Moto. Might go with OnePlus 5(T) or Nokia 8\9

  • Thanks but I'll stick to my Moto G5 Plus. At least it feels like a Motorola phone.

  • Now aside from all the battery drama surrounding this phone, I hope that with the renders suggesting a return of the headphone jack in the Z2 force, FM radio will he included across the line. Otherwise all the Z2's will be off my list of potential purchases. Oh well I guess the interest of saving money holds me for a while longer anyway. :P

  • I'm not falling for this again. The new Moto announces everything globally, but then you only get availability in select markets. I can't get a G5 in my country even today (not to mention a G5 Plus). And a few months later when they'll finally be available, they'll command a sizeable premium over their already inflated prices.

  • To Lenovo! Just bring back new smartphone Base on Moto X Style design! That's all Z,M... Series too curved

  • My opinion looks good as average above phone. At least is much better than stupid J7 2017 from stupid korea manufacturer. Also cost much less. Good job.

  • Lenovo's exactly what are you doing?

  • lenovo is destroying motorola...

  • boring, Lenovo turned Motorola into mediocre

  • Specs are good, but smaller battery than the predecessor? Not a very good development. Unless the price comes down too, I don't see why anyone would pick this over Lenovo P2 or Redmi Note 4.

  • They already destroyed Motorola.

  • moto please keep the battery size same 3500mah we need good battery life phones

  • i hope this phone does not get launched and that will be the best thing lenovo can do at this stage . poor specification . destroying motorola
