The removal of the fingerprint sensor fingerprint sensing is done anywhere on screen now and ability to use multiple fingers is a great upgrade. The return of the headphone jack was long overdue, Lenovo finally listened to it's customers, unlike Apple.
The GB built in memory and the ability to add trans flash will satisfy all storage needs I have. The included camera is fun, but the moto mod battery pack would have suited my needs more as I already own the camera mod. The phones cameras seem to function better than the Z2 and the quality of the few pics I've taken are outstanding.
Battery capacity is much larger than the Z2, but haven't had the phone long enough to really comment about how long it last. Add to cart. Had mine delivered on Monday and set up with Verizon. Took about 2 hours to transfer all my data phone works great. See All Buying Options. Currently unavailable.
Just got this recently. Great phone for the price.
Automatically updated to OS 9 upon turning it on. If you're with Metropcs it will work just fine. Don't bother going in to the store and getting a new sim card. Just call customer serivce or dial and they'll be able to get your new phone set up without paying anything.
Cell service is great and phone calls are clear. No complaints at this moment :. Only 3 left in stock - order soon.
This is almost the perfect midrange phone. Perfect size, perfect price, feels high quality, it's fast and has a great battery life. But it has one fatal flaw, that might be a deal breaker for many. There's no notification LED.
Knight Arizona. Every single car charger we bought for my husbands Motorolla Moto Z phone has been worthless. Thank you! Looks very well made and comes in the Motorola box with Motorola paperwork.
Quite short but looks like it will work fine for charging on juice pack or other small tasks. Not flimsy and pins are in good condition with a decent fit. I have a Moto Z Play. Virginia, USA. What can I say? It works great. The QC 3. At the very bottom are pogo pins that are required for data transmission between Moto Mods and the phone.
The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 as well, and Motorola has jumped on the bezel-less and notch bandwagon.
The edges surrounding the screen are slim, and that delivers a larger 6. This makes apps and other content look good. The screen is bright for most conditions, but can be tough to see in direct sunlight. Screen resolution is similar, though the Moto Z4 does offer higher brightness levels. Comparing speakers is an entirely different story. The Moto Z4 has top-firing speakers that are too easy to block when holding the phone in landscape mode. The Pixel 3a XL has two speakers — one front facing and one bottom-firing — and not only is it louder, but it also delivers richer sound.
You definitely need a speaker Moto Mod if you want a good experience. Things get worse when you permanently attach Moto Mod to the back — like the wireless charging mod — as the 2. Gone is the sensor that used to sit on the side of the phone. My tests say otherwise.
I initially had a lot of trouble getting it to work, but the trick is to scan your fingerprint multiple times; it works a lot better. The right side of the phone has a textured power button below a volume rocker. You can double tap the power button to trigger Google Assistant by default, which is a nice touch. On the bottom edge is a USB-C charging port, alongside — wait for it — a headphone jack! Customers complained. This gives me mixed feelings.
On the one hand, phones like the Pixel 3a which has the Snapdragon hardly had any issues, even when playing games like PUBG: Mobile. This rings true with the Moto Z4. It performs admirably. I did notice the Moto Z4 does tend to get warm quite quickly, which means prolonged gaming may be an issue as the processor will throttle performance.
That chipset is much faster and will hold up better as the years pass by. The Z4 does beat out the Pixel 3a, however. On the software side, Motorola offers a close-to-stock Android 9 Pie interface. Motorola has added a few of its classic features.
Moto Actions returns, so you can use gestures like chopping the phone twice to turn on the flashlight or twisting the phone twice to launch the camera app. Hover your hand close to the screen and you get a quick glance at the time and notifications. On the plus side, you will receive bi-monthly security updates for two years. The rear and front cameras use Quad Pixel technology — another word for pixel binning.
Pixel binning means the camera combines pixels so they take more light.
More light means better low-light photographs. This feature is on permanently for the rear camera, so the camera output will always be 12 megapixels. Photos taken during the day are detailed, but colors can look a little muted. In fact, photos overall can look a little flat, lacking contrast. It stacks images together and removes noise for clearer and more colorful nighttime photographs. I was surprised at how well it performed, handling its own compared to the Pixel 3a XL. Too often did I miss action shots because the camera shutter was too slow.
