Motorola Moto Z Review

Score: 9.39

Motorola Moto Z is a completely fascinating Android cellphone launched in September 2016, which features a really big 5.5 inches screen, an exceptional Quad-Core processing unit running at 2200 megahertz, and 2 cameras, a 13 megapixels back camera and a 5 MP front facing camera.

This phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 MSM8996 chip, which holds a high performance Quad-Core CPU clocking at 2.2 gigahertz with a huge 4 GB RAM memory. This phone counts with a 32 GB impressive internal storage and a slot for external memory cards, which allows you to install tons of applications, games, photos and videos without thinking about filling it.

Talking about its materials quality, the is built with Aluminum . Motorola made this phoneavailable only in color 16 777 216. Motorola has made an amazing job making this phone as lightweight as 4.8 oz. This device is just 0.2" thick, taking it to the thinnest phone's category. This phone is a very compact phone, considering it has a 5.5" screen and it is just 6.04" long.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 13 MP back side camera and a 5 mega-pixels front side camera. This phone also captures 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 frames per second, and 1920x1080 Full HD slow motion videos up to 60 fps (2 times slower than regular videos).

This cellphone has a beautiful 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD / 2K) 5.5" display, providing this phone with a perfect graphical experience.

This device uses a 2600 mAh great non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for many hours, but you may need to charge it if you use it heavily. An issue to take into account is that this phone's battery is non-replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to live shorter, even though with its 2600 mAh you will probably buy a new phone before it becomes a real problem.

The has WiFi connection (which can be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) super fast data connection and the fastest 3G internet connection, using HSPA and HSUPA technologies. This device works with a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

This cellphone also comes with lots of useful features as Fingerprint unlock, NFC, Bluetooth (4.1 ) and GPS, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone is a little overvalued considering it is priced $ 284, while many similar phones cost less than that. This cellphone is probably the correct choice it doesn't matter whether you want a phone to play games, are looking for a cellphone for work, will use it majorly for social networks and internet browsing or are a photography fan.
