Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Solid build quality
  • Beautiful metal-and-glass design
  • Water-repellent nano-coating on the phone's surface
  • Excellent implementation of the modular accessory system, just like its bigger brothers - the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force - which makes this phone truly versatile and offers an affordable entry point into the Moto Mods ecosystem
  • When it comes to expanding the functionality beyond what a traditional smartphone is capable of doing, no other system or implementation does it better than Moto Mods!
  • Compatible with all existing Moto Mods (battery life extender, projector, camera mods etc)
  • Beautiful, bright AMOLED display, with wide viewing angles and punchy colors
  • Mostly stock Android UI, which will appease the Android purists
  • Good speed/performance in daily use
  • Good call quality
  • Very good, speedy fingerprint sensor
  • Outstanding battery life - comfortably one of the best in the business
  • Turbo charging support (full recharge time of about 110 minutes)
  • Good rear camera that captures detailed images, especially in good lighting conditions
  • Good front-facing camera too - produces a pleasant level of sharpness to accompany its solid details capture
  • On the whole, even without any Mods, the Moto Z Play is a complete package and offers good value - the mods are the icing on the cake
  • Solid build
  • Well designed - the metal body and the 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass spread across the front, give it a premium feel
  • Rounded sides make it comfortable to hold
  • The fingerprint scanner is generally quick and easy to use
  • Very good display - bright and vivid with decent sunlight legibility - great for watching videos and games
  • Comes with Samsung's TouchWiz UI on top of Android, which is now lighter than before, and works well
  • Useful new features include S Power Planning (battery management) and S Secure (privacy), apart from Ultra-data saving mode and S bike mode
  • Good all-round performance - handles almost everything you throw at it - including heavy games, and multi-tasking
  • Decent rear and front cameras under daylight conditions - most of the shots taken by the smartphone have decent colours and are crisp - and the handset is able to lock focus quickly
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Slightly unwieldy
  • Gaming performance is not the best in class
  • Camera has longer exposure times when shooting photos under low light
  • Low light camera performance could have been better
  • The fingerprint scanner works well mostly, but can be iffy at times
  • Tends to crash/heat-up occasionally when put under stress
  • Lacks support for quick charging (which is present in some of its competitors)
