Moto Z2 Force

 

Motorola Moto Z2 Force review: Price, uk release date and features for Moto's latest rugged device. Can it compare to the competition?

Crack-resistant screen ; Powerful performance ; Mod support

Average battery and camera at this price ; Expensive

The Moto Z2 Force comes with a dual-lens rear camera that combines two 12-megapixel, ƒ/2.0, Sony IMX 386 sensors – one bayer (colour), one clear (mono). The setup is similar to the Huawei P10’s and in my mind isn’t as useful as the more common...

Motorola Moto Z2 Force review: Moto’s indestructo-phone is back with a vengeance

 

Motorola's indestructible phone is back, but does the Moto Z2 Force improve on the ambitions of its predecessor?

Shatterproof screen ; Top notch performance

Absurdly expensive ; Camera struggles in low light

The only thing that makes me pause in my recommendation is the price, which at £719 means it isn’t quite the force to be reckoned with it once was.

Motorola Moto Z2 Force review: Moto’s smashproof phone returns with a slimmer design and a performance boost

 

Motorola's Moto Z2 Force puts a high price on smartphone indestructibility, but is it worth it?

Motorola’s latest is a very tempting alternative to the usual crowd of fragile devices we see in shops, but at £735, this indestructible phone is no longer a force to be reckoned with.

Motorola Z2 Force review: Only for modular smartphone fans

 

Motorola Z2 Force is a flagship device by Motorola and it is touted to be shatter-proof, and works with Moto Mods. In this review, we find out if these traits are good enough.

Stock Android OS;Shatterproof screen;Lightweight & slim;Moto Mods for additional functionality

Screen easily scratched;Dated design with big, ugly bezels;Fingerprint sensor may be confused for home button;Battery life could be better;Moto Mods are expensive

Motorola Moto Z2 Force review: One step forward, another step back

 

The best way to think of the new Moto Z2 Force is as a mashup of the two flagships that came before it. It's very nearly as sleek as the first Moto Z, and packs a refreshed version of the ShatterShield display that made the original Z Force so durable....

Top-tier performance ; ShatterShield works as advertised ; Mostly stock Android 7.1.1 ; Mods offer lots of flexibility ; Available for all major US carriers

Battery life could be better ; ShatterShield screen is prone to scratches ; Not actually water-resistant ; International versions have more RAM

Motorola made some questionable trade-offs here, but the Moto Z2 Force is still a solid, impressive smartphone. I'll give it props for being the most powerful modular phone out there (unless you count RED's forthcoming monstrosity) and so far, the...

The Moto Z2 Force packs impressive specs in a thin frame, but it will drain your wallet dry.

Moto Z2 Force review: A modular phone with very few tricks

 

It's one of the last series of smartphones to ride on the modularity bandwagon. Is it even worth considering for its snap-on accessories?

Processor and RAM on par with other flagship devices. ; Near-stock Android 7.1.1. ; Shatteshield protects the display.

Battery life is inconsistent. ; Moto Mods present big compromises. ; Shattershield isn't impervious to scratches. ; No water resistance. ; Neither rear camera has OIS.

Motorola Moto Z2 Force Edition

 

The Z2 Force Edition is a powerful phone with a modular design that takes advantage of Motorola's useful Moto Mods accessories.

Useful modular design. Fast performance. Long battery life. Sharp display. Solid dual-sensor camera.

Easy to scratch plastic display cover. Weak speaker. No waterproofing or headphone jack. Some carrier bloatware.

In many ways the Moto Z2 Force Edition matches the Galaxy S8 feature for feature while adding support for truly useful add-on accessories. If you're sold on the Moto Mod idea, the Z2 Force Edition is the most powerful phone with which you can use them....

Motorola Moto Z2 Force review: the screen won’t shatter, but your wallet will

 

The flagship Moto Z doesn't offer enough to justify its expensive price.

A screen that delivers on its shatterproof promise ; Blazing fast performance ; Moto’s tasteful software improvements to Android

Design looks dated compared to 2017 competition ; Shatterproof screen is easily scratched ; Not truly water resistant ; No headphone jack ; Smaller battery than predecessor

Motorola is still making some very good phones like the G5 Plus and Z2 Play, but it’s hard to classify this Moto Z2 Force as one of them. Between the smaller battery, Motorola’s cost cutting (omitting a Style Shell), and the high price, it's hard to...
