Motorola has some thoughts on this whole "modular" thing. Instead of dismantling your phone into a series of puzzle pieces, the company is tackling the idea in a much more elegant way. With MotoMods, you just attach the accessory to the back of the Moto Z or Moto Z Force and magnets do the rest. It's a great idea that doesn't quite fulfill its potential, as we found out while reviewing both of the devices.
We are breaking our Moto Z and Moto Z Force into two separate reviews; the Moto Z review can be found here while the Z Force is, obviously, up above. If you're confused about the differences, know that there aren't many. Both phones are pretty similar—neither has a headphone jack, they look virtually identical, and they're both stuck on Verizon for now—but the Z Force has two key differences: camera and battery.
The regular Moto Z sports a smaller 2,600mAh battery and 13-megapixel main camera, while the Moto Z Force has a much beefier 3,500mAh battery and 21-megapixel shooter. Do either of these specs make a major difference? You betcha, especially that humongous battery. If that's something you care about, you shouldn't even entertain the idea of the normal Moto Z, which didn't get very good battery life during our week of testing.
To hear more thoughts about the Moto Z Force, check out Jon's video above and don't forget to read our review of the Moto Z. Some sample shots snapped with the Moto Z Force camera are included below:
