2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good looking design, premium look and feel
  • Sturdy, splash resistant
  • Decent display - high contrast and decent sunlight legibility
  • Almost stock Android build keeps things nice and simple
  • Good performance in daily use - though underpowered in the graphics department
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Clean audio output
  • Good front-facing 8MP cam - produces great selfies - detailed, and with pleasing skin tones
  • Decent battery life
  • 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
  • Good audio quality
  • Good speaker loudness
  • 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
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Average rear camera - color reproduction, dynamic range and exposure could have been better
  • 1080p video recording from either camera is also uninspiring
  • Slightly unwieldy
  • Gaming performance is not the best in class
  • Camera has longer exposure times when shooting photos under low light
