Review Moto Z Play smartphone (IFA 2016)

Update Moto series, Lenovo spent the summer presenting in San Francisco two smartphones – Moto Z Play and Moto Z Force. It so happened that the device not only distinguished by the presence of protection against damage to the screen version of the Force, but also other things: different resolution cameras and their quality, different capacity batteries, the thickness of the shells and so on. The general was one – cosmic design, smartphones, at first glance resemble the engineering samples, and some visible sensors and sensors and wants to hide or paint, but the lack of courage and originality Lenovo will not reproach. Both phones have turned out with the flagship characteristics and, therefore, cost.

The new smartphone in the lineup – a simplified version of the classic Moto Z, and the release of Moto Z Play – quite a logical step. As I said earlier, Moto Z and the top version, Moto Z Force – the device is too expensive and controversial, despite their inner beauty. All this leaves its mark and, I think, a little deterred by the devices that are still in design resemble some concepts of the near future, rather than smartphones – In Moto Z a small battery, both smartphones are no 3.5 mm jack, different cameras .

So, Moto Z Play – this is a valid apparatus in a new series Z. It is the same “kryshesnosyaschy” design, very controversial, daring, but definitely a hell of an original. Here is the same minimum shell thickness, and everything else, almost. At the same time, in the Moto Z Play has the usual 3.5 mm mini-jack, a normal battery capacity of 3510 mAh and a gentle screen resolution – 1920×1080 pixels. All these details should make clear to users the phone or something.

By the way, if I were asked why Lenovo want that kind of money for Moto Z, I would say, “for the design.” Yes, Moto Z turned mixed, with whatever side you look, but their design is too ambiguous, we got a really unique. Today it is very rare.
