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
  • High quality, premium design, with a metal frame
  • Slim body
  • Well built
  • Beautiful, large display with good brightness levels, contrast, and viewing angles
  • Sony's UI over Android is pretty nice
  • Sony's multimedia apps are better than their stock Android equivalents
  • Good speed/performance in regular use
  • Useful one-handed mode
  • Excellent primary camera with good quality stills and video
  • Excellent selfie camera - offers high-quality stills and videos, great dynamic range, especially with HDR
  • Loudspeaker is loud, and offers good quality
  • Good audio quality via headphones too
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
  • Large size phones such as the XA Ultra are of course not the easiest to carry around or handle (it's subjective - some people love large devices like these, and others don't)
  • The phone is also on the heavy side, and can put some strain on your hand after prolonged use
  • Average gaming performance
  • HDR image processing by the camera is on the slow side
  • Battery life is decent, but could have been better
