Moto Z2 Play Buy
However, not all mods are worth getting. I had a play with Motorola's smart speaker with Amazon Alexa and for 99 was bitterly disappointed. Even with the four added far-field microphones, Alexa didn't always pick up my voice and the fact that I could use Alexa without the mod, made me question the actual purpose of the add-on.

You'd also hope to hear a drastic improvement on the sound quality front, but I found a 30 Bluetooth speaker, such as the Creative Muvo 2c outshines the 99 moto mod. In comparison to the Muvo 2c, the smart speaker has recessed mids, a bloated bass and rolled off highs.
Priced at $408 on Verizon (or $499 unlocked when it goes on sale directly from Motorola later this summer), the Moro Z2 Play packs an even thinner body and a big, 5.5-inch AMOLED display while borrowing the nifty home button/fingerprint sensor with gesture controls from its budget sibling, the $229 Moto G5 Plus. However, the Z2 Play has lost the most important thing that set its predecessor apart from the pack: epic battery life.
Moto improves upon the stock Android experience with the Moto app, which lets you check notifications by waving your hand over the display. It also supports gesture controls, such as using a chopping motion with the phone in your hand to turn on the flashlight. You can enable gesture control on the home button itself, which lets you navigate back by swiping left, summon your recent apps by swiping right or lock the phone with a hard press.
The Moto Z2 Play has a weaker Snapdragon 626 processor, larger battery, FM radio, and standard HD screen. I was legitimately shocked when I found out both screens had a different resolution, which shows just how adequate a 1080p screen still is. Both Super AMOLED displays look excellent.
Coming to the specifications, the Moto Z2 Play runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat and sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The smartphone is powered by a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 626 octa-core processor paired with either of the two options - 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage and 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage. There is support for expandable storage with a microSD card slot for further expansion of storage (up to 2TB). 041b061a72
