Moto Z


At one point, it appeared as if modular smartphones were going to be all the rage. While they perhaps haven't become as prevalent as many had expected (RIP Project Ara), it hasn't stopped phones such as the LG G5 having a go at optional add-ons, with...

Lenovo Moto Z review


Do modular tricks make this Moto flagship utterly Z-licious?

Excellent QHD screen ; Plenty of power ; Moto Mods work like magic

Awkward design elements ; Sluggish camera

Flagship appeal, but Mods can't make up for the Moto Z's shortcomings

Moto Z review


The world's thinnest smartphone is also the best modular phone

Creative modular accessories ; Fingerprint sensor with a twist ; World's thinnest phone ; Google Daydream compatible

No 3.5mm headphone jack ; More expensive than Moto X ; Big camera bump, small battery

Moto Z is an incredibly thin Android phone, yet it's still able to boast the specs of its rival and add modular accessories to the mix. This is a stepping stone to a fully modular phone. We only wish we could exchange its big camera bump for the sorely...

Motorola Moto Z review


At 5.2mm thick, the Moto Z is one of the thinnest smartphones in existence. Is this a good reason to buy it, though? Find out in our Moto Z review.

The Moto Z is a mixed bag, successful in some areas and not in others. As long as you can deal with the jettisoning of the headphone jack and carrying a Power Pack Mod, the modular nature of the Moto Z makes it a compelling alternative to other...

Moto Z review: A modular phone done right


Disappointing camera aside, the Moto Z is the best modular smartphone yet

Super slim and gorgeous design ; Mods are great additions ; Brilliant display

Camera is a little underwhelming ; Battery life isn't as good as other flagships ; No headphone jack

The proof will come once I've finally had a chance to test some of its Moto Mods in more depth, but right now, the Moto Z is another great Android phone from Motorola and Lenovo, and it offers something truly different to everything else out there. It...

Moto Z Review: In Depth


Moto Z review: The US might have had a head start, but that doesn't make the European arrival of the Moto Z any less exciting. Here's our full review.

Excellent display ; Thin & lightweight ; Good battery life ; Premium design

Requires adapter for wired headphones ; Camera could be better ; Fingerprint magnet

At £499, the Moto Z is obviously priced like a flagship, but justifies the cost well. It offers a beautiful design and a stunning screen, a unique feature set thanks to its Moto Mods compatibility, excellent battery life with the benefit of fast...

Motorola Moto Z review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Motorola Moto Z is a pricey smartphone with premium features. But does this phone hold its battery life well, or will it run out of juice by the middle of the day? We put all phones through a range of tough tests, so find out whether this Motorola...

Review: Lenovo Moto Z


On its own, the Moto Z is an inspired flagship device. It's made of top tier materials, offers the best of Moto's bespoke software experiences, yet presents users with a pretty pure Android experience with very little in the way of unwanted bloatware...

This alone makes Moto Z an impressive release, but when you consider the manifold expansion capabilities offered by the Moto Mods, this device becomes the nerve-centre of a truly forward thinking digital ecosystem.

Mini review video: Our quick verdict on the new Moto Z phones


Think of the Moto Z Force as the Moto Z's big brother: It offers the same premium performance as the regular Z, but adds a larger battery, a camera that performs better in most situations, and a screen that resists damage. All of this makes the Z Force...

Sturdy, incredibly slim design ; Great display ; Moto Mods are elegant and have potential ; Excellent performance ; Charges really fast

It's a Verizon exclusive ; No headphone jack ; Camera not quite as good as the Z Force's ; Middling battery life

Lenovo Moto Z and Z Force review


The Moto Z is the first ‘modular' phone you'll want to own on Verizon.

Lenovo shifted the Moto brand and made it its own with the and . Both phones look different from previous Moto phones and they offer a smart, simple approach to modules. The Moto Z Force is our favorite of the two with its larger battery and...
