Reviews for the Lenovo Moto Z2 Play

80% Moto Z2 Play review: Modular awesomeness, version 2.0
Source: Gadget Show English
The Z2 Play isn't just any other mid-range smartphone. It's a one-of-a-kind device that opens a gateway to a whole new modular ecosystem. It's a smartphone that can be transformed into anything from a portable music system to a superzoom camera in a jiffy. And considering all of that, it's value-for-money, even with the additional cost of the Moto Mods included.

80% Motorola Moto Z2 Play
Source: PC Mag English
The $499 Moto Z2 Play is yet another solid modular phone from Motorola. On its own, it offers respectable performance, long battery life, and compatibility with all major US carriers. It pulls ahead of some of the competition when you start snapping on Moto Mods. It's a unique level of flexibility you don't get with G6, the S8, or any other non-Motorola phone, for that matter.

82% Motorola Moto Z2 Play review:
Source: CNet English
Motorola gave the Z2 Play a good processor that, though not cutting-edge, kept everything from basic navigation to games like Riptide Renegade running smoothly. Though it scored on the lower end of our benchmark graphics test (3D Mark -- Ice Storm Unlimited), I didn't notice lag time while browsing, scrolling and generally getting things done.

Moto Z2 Play review: Midnight in the garden of good and sequel
Source: Android Central English
Finally, I love the little things, like the speed and placement of the fingerprint sensor, and the way the camera takes reliable photos in basically any lighting condition. I appreciate the aluminum back, which means I don't have to wear a Style Shell if I don't want to. I love the well-calibrated side buttons.

80% Motorola Moto Z2 Play Review: Thinner, Lighter, Better
Source: The Verge English
Still, the Z2 Play provides a great mix of what matters without any unnecessary stuff piled on. And it does so with better battery life than even most flagships can provide. When you think about it, isn’t that all you really want from a phone?

Qualcomm Adreno 506: Integrated graphics card in the Snapdragon 625 SoC and based on the new 500-series architecture with support for Vulkan, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE (3.2) and UBWC.

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. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


80.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
