Moto Z2 Play review

10 October 2017
Moto Z2 Play is at the helm of a new marketing strategy free of any Lenovo branding that may burden the series with unnecessary heritage. Navigating through the lucrative but overcrowded upper-midrange territory sure isn't easy, but a useful innovation as the Mods expansion, a Super AMOLED screen and class-leading camera may help the Z2 Play to cast an anchor.

£379 for a 626? Too expensive!

AnonD-276592, 12 Oct 2017I'm pretty sure I already read the review before. That's wh... moreToo expensive for the price range. They should not mention Splash & Dust Resistant since it is almost the same as not waterproof, the fact that when people see Splash & Water Resistant they will still say it is not fully waterproof or not waterproof at all. Battery is rather disappointing, a 3000mAh battery got 76hr endurance rating when XPERIA XA1 with ONLY 2300mAh battery got 72hr endurance rating, aye

From 100h battery life (Moto Z1 Play) to 76h (Moto Z2 Play). You can now see how much damage is done when a Chinese maker buys a reputable company. Only the name is Motorola, the rest in Chinese crap.

Far too expensive at £379 RRP. Drop £100 and I will consider.

With the change of generations battery endurance reduced by 25%.

And to those wondering why this is reviewed only now - it's because it's launching this month on many European markets. Motorola/Lenovo has been slow to launch this phone internationally.
