Moto moto Z3 Play reviews

moto Z3 Play 64GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Deep Indigo) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this phone Love this phone over my Moto X Pure! Brighter screen, faster, and seems to have good battery life. Not sure how useful the MODS will be since I always have a phone cover on my phone but time will tell. The battery MOD that came with the phone in addition to the amazon speaker MOD was a big surprise since it was not clearly noted at part of the package. Very happy with the battery MOD as an addition to the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This phone rocks! We purchased these phones as a replacement for our Moto X Pure Edition. We waited as long as possible but our phones were 3 years old and we used them a lot. We love Motorola and were waiting on something that caught our attention. Well, the One Power wasn't released at this time so we looked at the Z3 Play. We liked the specs and the mods were interesting to us. We took a chance and we are so glad we did! The mods are great and the battery mod it came with is wonderful! We also love the Alexa speaker. We have also purchased the Hassleblad camera and plan to get more! You cannot go wrong with this phone...period! Don;t hesitate, purchase today! You won;t regret it!
