2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 17 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.


  • Sturdy, and well built
  • Premium all-metal design with aircraft-grade aluminum frame
  • Cutting-edge, ambitious, but very well implemented modular/make-your-own-phone design is the defining factor here
  • Customization here isn't about what your phone looks like, it's about what it does!
  • Fast and accurate fingerprint sensor


  • Excellent AMOLED display - deep blacks, vibrant colors, excellent viewing angles, and excellent sunlight legibility


  • Simple, stock Android interface with some of Motorola's signature gesture features that add plenty of value


  • Smooth, effortless speed/performance
  • Tends to get a little hot when dealing with heavy apps/games


  • Camera is pretty good overall, though not mind-blowing


  • The missing standard (3.5mm) headphone jack on the phone means that you won't be able to easily use your regular earphones with the phone (though compatible earphones come included in the box, as well as a USBC-3.5mm adapter)


  • 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)
  • Good battery life - lasts the day with moderate use
  • Turbocharging support - takes only about 1 hour 10 minutes for a full recharge


  • World's thinnest phone at 5.19mm!
  • The magnetic "mods" are practical and easy to use
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
