Motorola Moto Z3 Play Review

Score: 9.61

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.

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.

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 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 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 cellphone has a 3000 mAh long lasting Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for many hours, but you may need to charge it after some heavy use. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is not replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to get older, whereas with so much capacity you will probably replace this cellphone before it becomes an issue.

This phone might not be so convinient considering it is offerred for 500 dollars, and many similar phones cost a bit less than that. It doesn't matter whether you are looking for a gamer cellphone, are looking for a device for work, are an amateur photographer or want this phone mainly for social networks, you will probably be very happy with it.
