Motorola has been able to produce one of the finest flagships ever witnessed by the smartphone industry. One of its most successful flagship device was the Motorola Moto X Play that turned out to be one of the best of its time. However, as time passes Lenovo rekindled its popularity by launching it’s another hit smartphone i.e. Moto Z Play. Many people consider the Moto Z Play as the replacement to the much successful Moto X Play. The best part about the Moto Z Play is that it’s a modular smartphone so that its users can use a range of mods with this phone according to their needs. So, let’s see how this smartphone turns out to be in real life.
The Moto Z Play is made using an aluminum frame and boasts an excellent build quality. The phone gives a rugged vibe and design wise the phone looks rather well. The buttons provided in the phone provide good tactile feedback, however, seem to be a little small for the job. On the top edge of the phone sits the SIM tray that can house two Nano-SIMs as well as a microSD card. On the bottom edge of the phone, is provided the USB Type-C port and 3.5mm earphone jack. A physical home button has been provided in the phone upon which is embedded the fingerprint scanner. The external dimensions of the phone are 156.4 x 76.4 x 7 mm (6.16 x 3.01 x 0.28 in) and it weighs 165 grams. The phone is available in two color variants - Black and White. Talking about the display provided in the phone, it comes with a 5.5-inches Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that provides a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and roughly corresponds to 403 ppi rich screen. The display provided in the phone is amazing and we did not observe any problems with it. The sunlight legibility and the viewing angles are amazing too. Overall, the phone has a premium look and offers amazing display.
The phone features an Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor backed by a Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 chipset. Though the processor is not as powerful as that provided in the Moto Z, it is still able to play almost all kinds of games and videos easily. The Adreno 506 GPU provides enough juice to the phone to make sure the games and videos played on the phone don’t face any problem. The phone also features 3GB of RAM, which is decent for performing almost all kinds of functions. The phone runs on Android ecosystem, v6.0 i.e. Marshmallow, with a planned upgrade to version 7.0 (Nougat). The phone comes with 32GB of internal storage and the internal storage could be expanded up to 2TB using a microSD card. The phone supports 4G networks and provides dual SIM support.
The main panel features a 16MP camera that is backed by phase detection, laser autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash. Also, a 5MP selfie camera has been provided in the phone, also backed by an LED flash. The primary camera boasts features like Continuous shooting, Digital zoom, Geotagging, Panorama, HDR, Touch focus, Face detection, White balance settings, ISO settings, Exposure compensation, Self-timer and Scene mode. HD video recording would also be done by the camera at frames like 2160p@30fps, 1080p@30fps. The phone is able to record Slo-Mo videos too. The camera is able to take amazing pics in daylight, as the images turned out to be filled with colors. However, some barrel distortion was observed in some of the shots; nothing to be alarmed about. The images captured in dim light conditions turned out to be decent, however, a little noise does creep in the images. The phone features a loudspeaker that gets loud enough and a 3.5 mm audio jack is also provided in the phone.
The phone comes with a 3510 mAh Li-Ion battery. The battery provided in the smartphone is non-removable, however, supports fast charging. The battery can easily run for a day and half with moderate usage.
