Moto Z3 5G review


The solid budget – and so far only – 5G option

Significant price drop since launch ; Mods are intriguing if limited-utility ; Cheaper 5G option than flagships

Dated specs and design ; Cost of MotoMods adds up

The Moto Z3 won't turn heads with its simple design and lack of flagship features, but it's a surprisingly powerful phone at a bargain price. Which would be enough to recommend the phone – but it's also Verizon's secret weapon to get folks in the 5G...

Motorola Moto Z3 review


It's getting 5G with a Moto Mod, but should you buy it today?

Great screen, sleek build, solid power ; Very good camera for a mid-ranger ; Ready for the 5G Mod

Uses year-old flagship tech ; Still no essential Moto Mods today ; The 5G Mod isn't out until 2019

There are more compelling ~$500 handsets today, but the Moto Z3 is a very good phone that could become fantastic with the 5G Moto Mod

Moto Z3


Moto's latest flagship phone is very similar in looks and price to the Z3 Play. So what is actually different?

Moto Z3 review: When novel ideas get old


At the risk of sounding reductive, the Moto Z3 is last year's flagship Moto phone packed into a cheaper body with a bigger screen. That's not necessarily a bad thing: Its Snapdragon 835 chipset keeps things moving at a respectable pace and Motorola's...

Thoughtful software features ; Solid performance ; Pleasant screen

No ShatterShield or IP-rated water resistance ; Annoying fingerprint sensor placement ; It’s exclusive to Verizon ; The best feature isn’t available yet

Moto Z3 review


Great performance ; Good display ; Day-long battery life ; Capable camera, no shutter lag ; Promise of 5G

Thick camera bump, uninspiring design ; Unavailable to non-Verizon customers ; Poor low-light camera

The Moto Z3 brings strong performance, an all-day battery, and an affordable price tag. The potential of 5G aside, it’s the best option for Verizon subscribers looking for a sub-$500 phone.

Motorola Moto Z3


The Motorola Moto Z3 is the "first 5G phone," in that it will have an optional add-on for Verizon's 5G network next year. Until then, it stands on its own merits as a solid phone and a good way to try out Moto Mods.

Slim. Extensible with Moto Mods. Solid overall performance.

Dated processor. Below average low-light camera. Some carrier bloatware. Promised Mods are slow to appear.

The Moto Z3 Play isn't a flagship phone. With last year's processor, a 1080p screen, and an average camera, it can't compete with the latest and greatest like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or the OnePlus 6. Fortunately for Motorola, it's not meant to. The...

Motorola Moto Z3 review: identity crisis


A low price is the Z3's saving grace

Big, vibrant display ; Fast performance ; Very appealing price

Awkward, unergonomic design ; Average camera and battery life ; 5G promise requires a leap of faith ; Exclusive to a single carrier

Big screen, old parts, and a far-off promise of 5G

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G


The Moto Z3 is a curious device, mostly because its reason for existing hasn't been released yet. The Z3 will one day be compatible with the admittedly impressive 5G Moto Mod, a detachable accessory that's the product of a team up between Verizon,...

Great hardware and value for the price ; Looks sleek and feels good in the hand ; Will be 5G compatible (someday)

The 5G Moto Mod - the real star of the show - isn't out until 2019 ; A little too similar to the Moto Z3 Play ; No headphone jack

moto Z3 Verizon review: A slightly better Z3 Play for Big Red


Motorola is by far one of the best Android OEMs on the market and their fantastic Z3 Play jumps to to Verizon in the form of the moto Z3.

This is the same basic Z3 design but still nice ; Really nice build quality and materials ; AMOLED display is still killer ; Performance is even better than the Z3 Play ; Moto gestures are still great ; Battery life is amazing ; Android runs great here...

Left mounted power button ; Camera could be better ; Single speaker ; No headphone jack (for those who care) ; Glass design could lead to breaks without protection ; No OIS

The Z3 Verizon is another very solid mid-tier phone from Motorola that is really challenging the idea that everyone needs a flagship phone. The power button placement is irritating and the camera could be a bit better but for the price you get good...

Moto Z3 Review


Under the hood of the Moto Z3 ticks the Snapdragon 835 chip from 2017. So is a Moto Z3 worth getting? Sure it is, but probably not for the reasons you might expect.

Camera that produces solid results ; Unique, good looks ; Good battery life ; Moto Mods!

Verizon exclusive ; Only “splash-proof” ; Jumpy stabilization in videos
