Currently I have a Moto X (1st Gen) on RW 2.0. The phone is rapidly approaching 3 years old. By far the longest I’ve ever had a phone. I used to work for Big Red (VZW), so I swapped out phone every 4-6 months. lol. So I’m in the market for a phone hopefully before years end. I’m curious on people’s thoughts. For reference, I’m looking in the $300-$400 range.
Screen is virtually the same. Same size, same resolution, same dpi. The Moto Z takes a couple points with the gorilla glass. But the G4+ gets splash resistance.
**Processor: ** Snap dragon 625 in the Moto Z and Snapdragon 617 with the Moto G4+. So its Octacore 2000Mhz vs Octacore 1500Mhz
**Ram: **Only 3gb in the Z play versus 4gb in the Moto G4+
Battery: 3510 mah in the Moto Z, versus only 3000mAh in the G4+
Only other difference really is the lack of NFC (and compass I think) in the Moto G4+
I like the look of the MotoZ Play, but I have a hard time justifying $150 (50%) more for the Z play. Anyone able to provide some insight? I mean, actually for the matter against even the normal Moto Z, the G4+ seems hard to beat.
