    Moto Moto Z Play reviews

    Moto Z Play XT1635-02 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Lunar Gray) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery life above all else Very happy with this phone, agree with the other comments. Note: Motorola just released on their website the Moto Folio case, can't wait for B&H to offer it. My observations - took about a day to go through all the updates and security updates, comes with Android 6.X in the box but can be updated to 7.1 right away -Didn't realize that it came with the�Charcoal Ash Wood back plate or I wouldn't have ordered the black Herringbone Nylon. (Live in Canada and when Staples offered the Z play unlocked it didn't have a back plate included) - No FM radio, which is a shame as I don't have a lot of Data and when I go for a run it is nice to have something to listen to.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good phone for this price. Replaced Moto X which is still working well. Mostly because wanted larger screen. Pros: Large screen. Fast, especially when taking pictures. Good battery life (but X has it as well). Cons: Loosing Wi-Fi connection. December update made it more stable but issue is still there. All other phones in a house have solid Wi-Fi connection. Magnetic cover which came with the phone always will stick out at the top where camera is. making 3mm gap between cover and the back of the phone. Nothing like a beautiful shape of my old Moto X. Probably will have to buy something else for protection. For the price (when on sale) it is a solid phone, hopefully it will be as reliable as my previous phones from Motorola.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone! I had an S7 Edge before this phone and was tired of the Samsung interface. I was also not looking to pay $700 for a phone when the midrange phones have come so far. Most people seem to opt for the OnePlus 3, but I really like Moto phones. This phone is no exception. The speed is great. I never notice that the phone does not have an 820 processor. As most people have noted, the real differentiator is the battery life. I spend all day on my phone, and I no longer need to find a charger during the day. One key for battery life is too leave the brightness at half. The mods are the cherry on top, and work really well. Buy this phone; it will impress you (and save you some money).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing battery life The best battery life I've ever had with an android. It easily lasts two or even three days. The phone is well built and have good performance. The only downside is the camera, which is not so good (I was using Nexus 6p)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MotoMods is great; Works fine with T-Mobile Pre-paid I'm not into social media--more the anti-social type, so I don't text or call much. I develop phone apps, and I bought this phone because it has the full complement of sensors at a great price, and the Moto Mod port gives me the option of developing hardware for the phone as well. I do wish Motorola had recessed the power button on the side, as it's too easy to push the button while holding the phone in your hands. I have a case on order that will hopefully solve that issue. Other than that, it works great, and is plenty snappy with it's 8-core processor and Motorola's basic Android configuration with no add-on vendor bloatware.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from XT1635-02 For those wondering, I ordered this from B&H and received the XT1635-02 model which supports band 12 and 17.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great phone! I bought this phone for my wife, who�was earlier using a Moto G and the phone was due for replacement. Delivery from B&H to Canada was fast and efficient. All the data from the earlier phone was transferred in a jiffy. The cameras are just awesome. We are so happy we bought this phone. Highly recommended!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Battery Life = Freedom The standout on this phone is the battery life. I am a heavy user and typically listen to music for 5hrs a day plus frequent use. The phone lasts a full two days without charge for me and I no longer have to worry about running out of juice moments before a meeting. That aspect is just incredible. I could take or leave the modularity though I'll probably snag the extended battery for business trips. The magnetic covers don't hold as tightly as I would like and are easy to knock off. There's a little jiggle at the top of the cover because while there's a magnet and alignment divot on the bottom there's no magnet on the top and its not a super tight fit around the camera. Without the back it's downright slippery and I've almost dropped it a couple of times already. Overall I love it, but I'm pretty sure I'll smash it on the pavement eventually because of the size, glass back, and not quite tight enough nylon grip back I added.
