Review: Motorola Moto Z2 Play for Verizon Wireless

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

Motorola did a bang-up job with this phone. Almost every aspect of the hardware and software impresses and performs above the Z2 Play's affordable price point.

Motorola gave the Z2 Play a strong metal chassis that's fully compatible with its roster of Moto Mods accessories. The phone's thin profile and bright screen are attractive, the signal and voice performance are ideal, and the battery life is above average. I did see some weirdness with the Bluetooth and NFC, but these are hardly deal-breakers.

Android 7.1 Nougat is a great platform and additions such as the Moto App — with the active display, gesture tools, and Moto Voice — improve usability across the board. I seriously question Verizon's use of the AppFlash software, though it can be disabled (if not uninstalled.) The camera app is a little basic, but the excellent images more than make up for it.

Verizon is selling the Motorola Moto Z2 Play for $408 and that's a bargain. This phone punches way above its mid-range status. It's a better buy than the OnePlus 5, and an excellent phone for all but the most finicky flagship seekers. Go buy this phone now.
