Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Sturdy, and well built
  • Premium all-metal design with aircraft-grade aluminum frame
  • World's thinnest phone at 5.19mm!
  • Cutting-edge, ambitious, but very well implemented modular/make-your-own-phone design is the defining factor here
  • The magnetic "mods" are practical and easy to use
  • Customization here isn't about what your phone looks like, it's about what it does!
  • Snap-on "Moto Mods" give your phone a meatier battery, turn it into a boombox for your weekend cookout or transform it into a video projector for an impromptu movie night! (The ecosystem of accessories is already good, and the company is lining up more partners)
  • Motorola's whole magnetic take on the modular ecosystem is simpler and more approachable than Google's intricate (and still developing) Project Ara, as well as easier to use than LG's G5
  • You can change Mods in seconds and won't have to power off the phone to do so
  • Slimmer "Style Shells" are also available, to stylize the phone
  • Simple, stock Android interface with some of Motorola's signature gesture features
  • Smooth, effortless speed/performance
  • Camera is pretty good overall, though not mind-blowing
  • Good battery life - comfortably lasts the day
  • Turbocharging support - takes only about 1 hour 10 minutes for a full recharge
  • Fast and accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Although the 'mods' are the primary draw for the phone, but even without considering the mods, the Moto Z is, on the whole, a powerful, stylish phone with a lot to offer
  • Beautiful, polished, luxurious design - with a lot of attention to detail
  • The curved back and sides make it comfortable to hold
  • Nice, compact size
  • Dust Proof and Water Resistant
  • Beautiful, high-end display, with near-perfect color accuracy
  • The new "always-on" display feature is a nice touch, and takes the hassle out of checking out the time
  • Top-notch, chart-leading performance backed by the powerful hardware
  • Samsung's Touchwiz UI over Android is now even lighter, and has less bloat
  • Brilliant, awesome, fast camera, with OIS, that does well even in low-light conditions
  • Very good battery life
  • microSD storage slot
  • Quick charging, and wireless charging support
  • Good call quality
  • Very good audio quality
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • The mods need to, of course, be purchased separately
  • Buy the Moto Z and a mod or two if you want to be part of the future today, but if you are looking for a more "standard" handset, the OnePlus 3 (better value) or Samsung Galaxy S7 (better camera) may be better choices
  • The shiny metal-and-glass back is a smudge magnet
