Moto Z2 Play


Moto Z2 Play review: A lot of phone for £379.99, but the lack of convincing Moto Mods mean it's not quite the Honor 9 killer we were expecting

Slick software ; Affordable price ; Fantastic battery life

Odd design ; Camera struggles in varying conditions ; Not convinced by Moto Mods

The original Z2 Play was Trusted’s battery life champion until the Lenovo P2 came along. Which is why I had high hopes for the Z2’s stamina. Despite the fact Motorola has swapped the original Z’s 3510mAh battery for a smaller A 3000mAh cell to...

Moto Z2 Play review


Moto Z2 Play is at the helm of a new marketing strategy free of any Lenovo branding that may burden the series with unnecessary heritage. Navigating through the lucrative but overcrowded upper-midrange territory sure isn't easy, but a useful innovation...

This new Moto phone's battery lasts 17 hours


Its all-day battery life makes it one of the longest-lasting phones you can buy.

The Moto Z2 Play has a beautiful screen and all-day battery life. There’s expandable storage, lots of software tricks and even a headphone jack.

Its best software feature doesn’t always work. The phone feels wide and uncomfortable without a magnetic back cover, and not much better with covers that don’t fit well. Last year’s Z Play had much longer battery life.

Strong battery life, clever software and magnetic Mod add-ons make the Motorola Z2 Play a compelling midrange choice.

Motorola Moto Z2 Play


The Z2 Play is a unique unlocked phone that combines solid performance with a modular design that taps into Motorola's Moto Mods add-ons.

Useful modular design. Current software and virtually no bloatware. Compatible with all major US carriers. Long battery life.

Difficult to use with one hand. Tinny speaker. Slightly pricey for the specs.

The $499 Moto Z2 Play is yet another solid modular phone from Motorola. On its own, it offers respectable performance, long battery life, and compatibility with all major US carriers. It pulls ahead of some of the competition when you start snapping on...

Motorola Moto Z2 Play review: thinner, lighter, better


A smaller battery doesn't tarnish the Z2 Play's shine

Slim, light design ; Excellent battery life ; Smart software enhancements

Camera could use optical stabilization ; Fingerprint gestures are clumsy ; Only available unlocked or from Verizon

Still, the Z2 Play provides a great mix of what matters without any unnecessary stuff piled on. And it does so with better battery life than even most flagships can provide. When you think about it, isn’t that all you really want from a phone?

Moto Z2 Play review: All the mod cons


Ignoring Mods for a moment, however, and it's hard to ignore how well the Z2 Play runs. The subtle design tweaks compared to the previous-gen Play

Incredible battery life (even more incredible with a relevant battery Mod) ; Mods work with minimal fuss and can be genuinely useful ; Great fingerprint scanner with gesture controls ; Flagship-level smoothness and operation - including for games

The OnePlus 5 will likely give it a run for the money ; Not all Mods fit perfectly and phone looks bizarre without one fitted ; Why buy into Mods when you could buy separate accessories for any phone?

If you find Moto Mods enticing then the Z2 Play is a super phone with plenty to offer beyond its quirky selling point. If Mods leave you cold given their cost and size implication then, well, we think Moto will be in a great place to deliver an...

Motorola Z2 Play review


Moto does modular right with this great value mid-ranger

Premium build and quality screen - even at 1080p ; Silky performance and great battery life ; Nifty modular accessories

Camera lacks colour punch ; Moto Mods quickly get expensive ; Phone still looks weird without a Mod in place

A magnificent mid-ranger that might not wow on sheer specs, but still impresses with modular magic

Moto Z2 Play review: A sleek and impressive smartphone with great battery life


After extensive tests and usage, the Moto Z2 Play leaves me impressed. Here's why!

Lenovo has priced the Moto Z2 Play at Rs 27,999 in the Indian market. The price of the Z2 Play places it as a premium device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626. The company has decided to focus on the overall experience instead of engaging in a race to...
