Received an email today from RW with an invitation to write a review on my Moto Z Play. Did just that, but at the end I realized that my review can’t be submitted because the space provided may contain perhaps one or two sentences only.
Just enough to copy and paste the RW’s suggested example: “Example: I bought this phone a month ago and am so happy that I did…”
That’s funny, a sort of a busy response that says: “here is the review you asked for and stop bothering me”
Here is a copy of my my actual review I tried to submit to RW minus the requested ratings:
It’s a keeper. Long lasting battery and the fingerprint lock are just the highlights of the awesomeness of this phone. There are more high points and one of them is the fact that this phone never overheats! I’m not a ‘gamer’ but instead of running performance benchmarks I just play Asphalt 8 for 10 minutes to get an objective take. Moto Z Play plays cool. Yeah, it doesn’t have a Snapdragon 820 in it and that’s the good thing, Moto Z Play won’t ‘burn’ your hands when you’re recording videos for prolonged amount of time, as reported by many other phone’s users.
As for the Moto Mods options and functionality I’m still waiting for something to get really excited about. I like the ‘modular’ idea to be able to extend the functions of the phone, beyond the phone itself, but so far I don’t see it there yet. The JBL SoundBoost speaker sound is disappointing, I use great sounding BT speakers(w/ double woofers! I’ve bought for less$$ then JBL costs. Another example: Hasselblad camera, has 10X optical zoom and that’s very nice but it costs some $250 where my current ‘pocket’ camera has 18X optical, it’s loaded with tonnes of other features for a price of $200(Casio EX-ZR800)
