Motorola Moto Z3 Play Review

Score: 76.3 / 100

Motorola Moto Z3 Play is a great quality cellphone launched back in the year 2018, packing a Octa-Core processor clocking at 1.8 GHz, an enormous 6-inches display, and 2 cameras, a 12 mega-pixels back-facing camera and an 8 mega-pixels front-facing camera.

The Motorola Moto Z3 Play feels much lighter than what you expect from a device of this size. About its construction, this cellphone is mainly made with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 3) and Aluminum . This phone is available only in color 16 777 216. This phone is very thin and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.27". This cellphone is a very compact device, taking into account that it features a 6" display and it is just 6.16 inches long and 3.01 inches wide.

Motorola equipped this cellphone with a gorgeous 6-inches screen, and a resolution of 1080 x 2160 , which makes everything look absolutely perfect.

This cellphone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SDM636 system chip, including an extremely powerful Octa-Core processing unit speeding at 1.8 gigahertz and a large 4 GB RAM memory. This cellphone comes with a 64 GB great internal storage memory and a slot for an SD memory card, more than enough to install tons of apps, games, photos and videos without thinking about running out of space at all.

This device provides wi-fi capability (which it can share with other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G super fast connectivity and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a slower 4G technology) and 3G fast internet connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This device uses a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

The features two cameras, a 12 megapixels back facing camera and an 8 MP front-facing camera. the Motorola Moto Z3 Play's back facing camera has a 1.7 aperture so it can take excellent photographs even in low-light situations. The also shoots videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second. In addition, the camera counts with time lapse video.

This cellphone has a 3000 mAh long lasting Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that provides this phone an extremely long battery life. An issue to evaluate is that the 's battery isn't replaceable so you can't change it when it begins to lose its charge, while with this big battery you will probably replace this phone before it becomes an issue.

This cellphone also features a great numbre of cool characteristics as Fingerprint Sensor, Face unlock, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Geolocation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This phone costs 500 dollars, which is not a good offer for this type of phone. No matter whether you need a cellphone for work, want it to take tons of photographs, are looking for a gamer cellphone or will use it as a social cellphone, you will definitely be very happy with it. If you buy this phone you will also receive USB-C cable, TurboPower charger, guides and headset adapter.
