I bought this phone in Dec 2018. Up to this point, I have only used Moto x and Moto x pure.
I like the sleek design, and it has a slightly larger screen than the Moto x pure edition.
But I wish I had gone with another Moto x.
The biggest drawback for me, is that RW only offers phones to me that work in my area. The moto z3 play was one of them. While I have coverage at my house, the coverage ends at the end of my driveway, and I have no coverage for several miles. If my car breaks down 1-4 miles from home, I cannot call anyone for help. If I’m in a phone conversation, it gets cut off as I near my town. That is a HUGE problem
The Moto z3 play does NOT have an auxiliary port/headphone port. It came with a small adapter, which I have misplaced. I can’t understand why they would make a phone without an auxiliary port. That was something I used often.
I had become accustomed, with the Moto x pure, to passing my hand over the phone so the time and notifications would pop up. Moto z3 play does not have infra red, so that is no longer an option. Now I have to press the power button just to see the time.
I can’t figure out how to get the Moto z3 play to read my texts, tell me who’s calling, etc, while I’m driving. Is this feature not available on the Moto z3 play? It doesn’t make sense that they would have done away with that. Especially now that localities are passing laws against using a cell phone while driving.
The cons definitely outweigh the pros for me with this phone, and I wish I had gone with another phone.
