Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 27 Expert Reviews

What we liked
  • Beautifully made, well-designed, slim and light (although might look a little a bit too futuristic for some, with exposed connection pins on the rear, when used without any mods)
  • The key USP here of course is the magnetic mod add-ons that you can snap onto the back of any Moto Z-family phone - some of the cool ones are the TurboPower Pack charger, Wireless Charging Style Shell, and JBL SoundBoost 2 speaker - they work with minimal fuss and can be genuinely useful ways of enhancing your phone's functionality
  • Great fingerprint scanner with gesture controls
  • Beautiful, sharp display
  • Motorola's software sticks to stock, simple Android - but still adds useful software tricks - such as "show me" voice commands, Moto Display, and Moto Actions
  • Good speed/performance - though the chipset is not cutting-edge for this price bracket - but everything runs flawlessly in real-life use
  • Pretty good rear camera quality - generally takes bright, colorful, detailed photos
  • Decent front camera too
  • Very good battery life - you should be able to easily go a day and a half or even two days with some heavy use - and of course battery life can be made even more incredible with a relevant battery Mod
What we didn't
  • The phone feels a bit wide and uncomfortable without a magnetic back cover (mod)
  • Performance is good, but there are phones in this price bracket with better chipsets
  • Camera is again pretty good, but falls behind the best camera devices in this price bracket - the Honor 8 Pro, and the OnePlus 5
