Moto Z Force review: Motorola's beefier Z smartphone is better without its mods

Florence Ion | July 26, 2016
It's too bad Motorola's better-performing flagship phone takes a back seat to the svelte Moto Z. The Z Force is worth the higher price.

I’d suggest you don’t even bother with the Moto Z unless you’re particularly attracted to the idea of the Moto Mods. And definitely don’t choose this variant if you do like Motorola’s approach to modular smartphones. The Moto Z Force’s thicker chassis doesn’t pair well with the mods. Once you strap on a mod like the JBL SoundBooster, or even one of the Power Packs, it feels like you’re carting around a brick in your bag. However, I love the shatter-resistant display and the stellar 21-megapixel camera. The extra $100 is worth it for the rear-facing camera alone, and with its larger battery pack, you can ensure the Z Force can carry you through even the longest of days.
