The Moto Z2 Force is a powerhouse that plays it safe

  • Moto Z2 Force All Set to Launch | Here's the Features, Price and Details of the Same

If you guys want to own it, you can do so by pre-booking it now.

To add to the phone's toughness - maybe one of the main reasons you would pick this over a rival flagship - Lenovo has added 7000 series aluminum, so this is a phone that should be able to survive a drop or two. Eligible customers can also get a free Insta-Projector Moto Mod by mail with the purchase of a new Moto Z Force Edition (while supplies last). That's similar to what happened with the Moto Z2 Play against the original Z Play. (It doesn't hurt the Motorola launcher looks and feels a lot like Google's own Pixel Launcher.) Then again, I really never anxious about pure speed.

Interestingly enough, Motorola has opted for a smaller battery capacity for the Z2 Force.

Last year's exclusive deal with Verizon worked, but broader distribution will be essential, according to Avi Greengart, research director for consumer platforms and devices at GlobalData. Motorola's almost indestructible smartphone is the successor to last years Moto Z, but a lot has changed.

The Moto Z Force Edition also has an upgraded camera, featuring two 12 megapixel rear cameras so it can take professional-looking photos every time you fire it up (or twist your wrist).

Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq: VZ), headquartered in New York City, has a diverse workforce of 161,000 and generated almost $126 billion in 2016 revenues. It has a little trouble locking down the correct exposure sometimes, though - we'll have to see how it handles brighter conditions. You can also capture monochrome images using the second sensor only. Here's one of our videographer Brian pausing mid-sandwich. The Galaxy S8, by comparison, measures 8 mm - though it's still hard to call that phone thick.

As phones go, the Moto Z2 is exceptionally thin at just 6mm.

The pill-shaped home button/fingerprint sensor combo is inset into the glass a bit, and the edge that encircles it is a little sharper than it probably should be. This is for all United States carriers, with no limited early release on Verizon or T-Mobile. The phone will ship on or around August 10th.

Instead, Motorola has traded that battery life for thinness.

All told, I get the impression that this is the flagship phone Motorola wanted to make all along. Both are made of aluminium, although the Z2 Force's build is tougher than the Play, as you'd expect given that name. We'll have more in-depth results on performance though when our full review is posted, but of course, these specs and UI don't seem poised to disappoint.
