I am still in awe with the phone. It's the slimmest sexy thing I hv ever come across. 1st day with the phone ,let's point out a few things first. The good Build quality(absolutely classy) Display Software(clean vanilla) lesser bloatware than moto g series. The turbo charging Colour rendering Multitasking(absolutely slippery) , not yet used for gaming Moto features Fast fingerprint scanner NFC Earphone sound(good thump and output clarity) , type c dongle works cool. No issues. Speaker sound - good enough Voice call- upto expectations Sensors - all relevant stuffs , except heartbreak sensor Style shell mod Good lighting camera performance(both primary and secondary) The average- Battery backup(maximum of 16hrs on moderate usage, specially when you hv got a new phone and busy customising it.) Low light camera (I have seen better). But it's still decent enough to standout from Smarty budget phone owners. Earphone build quality Ergonomics(style shells the way to go) plus a plastic bumper provided. Screen durability Backside fingerprint smudge prone without shells Unpolished Camera software Underutilisation of dedicated fingerprint scanner button The disappointment No led notification(though moto display is fresh, but LED is cool to get distracted) ***Update - there is a led in between the front flash and speaker, but it's not for notifications, when h turn off the phone and put i in charge , that white light blinks once. No dedicated sd card slot. Hybrid 2nd sim slot is a bummer. Cannot use my both numbers along with a memory chip. Either have to use a 4G sim or my regular number. Looks like have to carry 2 phones . No IP certified water resistance No dedicated gallery software Gets heated on heavy hardware operations - camera , gaming. It gets heated a lot at times, which you can feel through the metal back , and will put your phone down. Even style mods cannot dissipate the heat, you will feel it. I booted it for the first time and while setting up mails and WiFi ,it got heated. But after that during camera usgae the lower part around the pins gets very hot within 5 mins. Don't know if it's normal or not. No type C otg provided Limited mods availability, so the rather useful battery mods and style mods are unavailable for discounted bundled purchase. Deal breaker!! Non availability of force edition Clock widget features are not as shown in foreign edition reviews ***Download "command center" apk for this widget. This is still a smart buy to be a standout from the crowd. It's truly premium and of it's own league with the mods ecosystem. Definitely future proof. Just a few unpolished issues , but better than most of its competitors. After all if they satisfy you with all your desired specs in one device, will you ever opt to buy a new one ??? ;P Proud to be a moto z owner. Will update sometime later, let me date her for sometime. **Update Battery backup when not in use is excellent, only 2 percent drop in 8hrs. Low light camera pictures are grainy , unless flashlight is called into play. I hope future software updates will have some solution. Notification bar lacks useful shortcuts like screen on time... No night mode default settings option for display. Although Google launcher is running,the home screen cannot be switched to landscape mode. Ringtone volume is little low ,for my choice. Other wise it's going great!!
Best phone I have owned till date. Very fast, lightweight and sleek. Running Jio VOLTE calls out of the box. Flipkart delivered one day before scheduled delivery date. My only grudge is that the JBL Soundboost Mod was out of stock in five minutes and the Incipio Power Pack is not even open for pre-order.
As usual, Flipkart delivered the phone one day before. I am exited to open the box. Camera is excellent, Pics are very good. Pic are having more clarity. Video quality is good. Multitasking work as expected I have not observed any slowness in response of the phone. Touch is very sensitive and good. Battery backup of the phone is very good. In sleep mode battery is not draining. As other phones, this phone also getting heated, while charging, while using continuously more than 120 min.
The phone is awesome 1.after using it for 1 day the camera lens got scratched mildly, 2.without style shell phone looks incomplete 3.battery backup is good enough to give you 10-15 hrs in one go. 4.Fingerprint sensor is extremely fast . 5.Awesome daylight camera 6.Worst low light camera ,camera becomes slow at night
