Reviews for the Lenovo Moto Z

89.3% Lenovo Moto Z Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Moto-mania. Not only does Lenovo's new flagship Moto Z feature high-end technology, it also aims to attract customers with its modular expandability and extremely slim design. Does the concept work in practice or are there even any drawbacks such as reduced battery runtimes?

Lenovo moto z is having latest features such as moto-moods functions, which is totally new thing in technology world. The camera results are very impressive and with 4GB RAM it is providing us a fast and better experience. The device can easily compete with its competitors and we have tested the device in every section and it has performed very well.

Moto Z review: Magnets make everything better
Source: Soycincau English
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t buy into Moto’s idea of a “modular” smartphone. It was just so simple and elegant that you can’t help but think: “Why didn’t LG think of this?” But I made those assumptions based on what I saw at the launch.

Moto Z Review: World's Thinnest Phone, With Add-Ons, Is Great For Mobile Photographers
Source: Forbes English
Everything else about the Moto Z is really solid. Its camera (without the add-on) is a 13-megapixel shooter with f/1.8 aperture. It focuses very fast (but not as fast as the S7 Edge) and has a manual mode, which will come in handy because in auto mode the camera's white balance tend to be too cool. In low light, the camera is a disappointment. It doesn't take in nearly as much light as the HTC 10, S7 Edge or LG V20, and images have a lot of noise.

Moto Z and Moto Z Play Review: Two Distinctly Different Moto Mod Approaches
Source: Androidcommunity.com English
The Moto Z flagship is another story, as it has the horsepower, the style, and the pricing to hang with the big boys on the block. Throw in the Moto Mods and you’ve got a competitive phone that also has access to a still-developing spectrum of fun and useful accessories, gear that Lenovo has pledged will remain compatible with the next generation Moto Z as well. If you plan on keeping your phone for the next few years, and are intrigued by the promise of Moto Mods, the Z is definitely worth a hard look. Even if the Mods aren’t your thing, this incredibly thin phone might be the right fit for your ultra-mobile lifestyle.

80% Lenovo Moto Z review: The new standard for modular smartphones
Source: Hardware Zone English
If you're just going for a Style Shell and the battery pack, the Moto Z would actually make an ideal purchase. Otherwise, the entire package would be a huge blow to the bank account, and getting just one other module defeats the purpose of having a modular, hot-swappable phone.

Do You Need A Modular Smartphone? The Moto Z Review
Source: Tech Girl English
Don’t let that deter you from the Moto Z itself. The phone is sleek and fast. It’s safe to say that Motorola (Moto) is back in epic style and I couldn’t be happier. If I was to score it I’d give it a solid 9 out of 10 because #bringbackauxport.

In fact, I'd rather have had a thicker phone with a better battery. The lack of a headphone jack is another annoyance, but one that pales in comparison to the battery. Did I mention the terrible battery?

70% Lenovo Moto Z review: A beautiful handset that has some fairly distinct caveats
Source: Neowin English
Let's be clear - the Moto Z is a pretty good device - but it does have some caveats. While the handset is snappy and the Android experience is close to stock, the camera and battery are two areas where the Moto Z fails to impress. While the camera software can always be tweaked in a later update, the battery will always remain the same, and 2600 mAh is simply not enough. While those that are on Verizon will have the option of going with the beefier Moto Z Force with a larger battery, there is no GSM equivalent of that handset. Instead, Lenovo's only option for GSM users is the Moto Z Play, that offers a larger battery, but at the expense of 1GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage, and a mid-tier CPU/GPU.

Moto Z Review: Beauty and a Beast

The Moto Z is quite simply, one of the best devices that the company has made. Not only is it a gorgeous phone in it’s own way, it also paves the path for a new brand of modular phones and keeps the legacy of Motorola alive at Lenovo.

80% Moto Z Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Motorola's take on a modular smartphone is definitely a lot stronger than any other we've seen before. Even without considering the mods, the new Moto Z is a powerful, stylish phone with a lot to offer. Almost everything about it looks good and works well. This is a great phone for those who want style and power, but aren't necessarily going to run heavy apps all the time. The ability to use mods is of course the biggest draw, so be sure to read our detailed reviews of the Hasselblad True Zoom camera, JBL Soundboost speaker, and Moto Insta-share projector.

96% Moto Z/Moto Z Play review: Innovation in a stagnant field
Source: Techaeris English
If you’re looking for a smartphone that’s versatile, has decent battery life, and has options to “mod” your phone, the Moto Z and Moto Z Play are definitely a pair of smartphones which shine in a field that has become relatively stagnant over the past couple years. I REALLY hope that the Moto Mods system takes off and sticks around for a few years because I can really see the potential for such a system.

At £499, the Moto Z is obviously priced like a flagship, but justifies the cost well. It offers a beautiful design and a stunning screen, a unique feature set thanks to its Moto Mods compatibility, excellent battery life with the benefit of fast charging, smart UI elements and a great (although not class-leading) pair of cameras.

The Moto Z Droid: Mods Make It Yours
Source: Gear Diary English
These are the four main Moto Mods available now. What I love about each of them is how easy they are to swap in and out to bring the Mod’s particular properties to your Moto Z phone. I like how they charge when they are attached to a charging phone, and I like how they have their own batteries so they don’t drain your phone any faster than absolutely necessary when in use.

Moto Z Review: On the thin edge of innovation
Source: Mobile Syrup English
Camera wise, however, the Z leaves a bit to be desired as I found the Moto Z’s focus to be too slow for how I typically use a smartphone’s camera. Aesthetically, the Moto Z looks spectacular and features a unique look that helps it stand out from other smartphones on the market, though I still prefer the Note 7’s mix of smooth lines and angles to the Moto Z’s more blocky shape.

Moto Z Review: Great Modular Concept, Not-So-Great Standalone Device
Source: Lowyat.net English
The Moto Z is a very good flagship device, this much is true. The many Moto Mods add functionalities to the device other smartphones simply do not offer, and its capable camera – although not perfect – and polished software experience make it a very pleasant smartphone to use.
Positive: Impressive Moto Mods; nice performance. Negative: Short battery life; average speakers.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company.
