Motorola Moto Z2 Force hands-on review

Motorola Moto Z2 Force hands-on review

With Moto Z2 Force, Motorola has now introduced the display technology into its premium and flagship smartphone series.

In the past, Motorola has impressed its fans with the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus by making them one of the better budget phones in the market right now.

The new device comes with flagship grade hardware to justify the price tag and boasts of a dual camera setup at the back too. For selfies, there is a mere 5MP front camera with f/2.2 aperture and dual-tone LED flash. It features a redesigned oblong-shaped fingerprint scanner enabled home button. The Z2 Force also has a water-repellent coating to protect it from splashes and light showers. The phone is backed by a 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 2TB via microSD card. While the ShatterShield display is the highlight for this device, the recent reports confirmed the peeling issue of the top plastic layer. Under the hood, you will find the latest octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile platform which is clocked at 2.35GHz.

The ShatterShield display of the Moto Z2 Force mainly comprises of 5.5-inch P-OLED screen that offers Quad HD screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The smartphone is also Splash resistant to keep the internals safe from little splashes.

Software: The Moto Z2 Force runs on a near stock version of Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with a few additions here and there such as gestures like twist for opening the camera and double karate chop for turning on the torch, an always on display which Motorola calls "Moto Display", Moto Voice, a nifty Night Display mode and so on.

A month ago, a huge Motorola leak gave us a look at the 2018 lineup of smartphones from the Lenovo-owned manufacturer. The device is bundled with a TurboPower Pack Moto Mod, priced at Rs 5,999 respectively.

The Moto Z2 Force sports dual camera setup including two 12MP sensors with f/2.0 aperture.

Motorola is providing a Moto TurboPower mod with every purchase of the Moto Z2 Force. The device will be sold via Flipkart and Moto Hub stores across the country. On the connectivity front, it supports 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.2 (after Android O update v5.0), WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 2.4 GHz + 5 GHz with MIMO, NFC, A-GPS and in some regions, the dual-SIM model will be available as well.
