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)
  • Nice, bright AMOLED display, with wide viewing angles and punchy colors
  • Mostly stock Android UI, which will appease the Android purists
