Moto Z2 Play - The mid-range bet from Moto.

Reviewed by - Published on



Moto Z2 Play is one of the phones Moto is betting heavily this year with its mid-range pricing after the success of its last year Moto Z play which received good reviews for its overall performance. Moto launched the new Z2 Play with a capable spec sheet with consists of the octa-core Snapdragon 626 chipset, 4GB of RAM and a better 3300 mah battery. In this price range, Moto Z2 surely has some good competition from Samsung C9 Pro, Oneplus 3T in which it will have to deliver in such a way that it could stand among them.

Moto Z2 play sports a crisp 5.5 inch super amoled  display, 12 and 5 megapixel rear and front cameras respectively and it has retained turbo charging which was good to see. The camera performance of the phone is very much acceptable considering the price of the phone and also includes 4K video recording. A beautiful interface which almost gives a stock android experience and with the least amount of bloatware which is nice to see. Moto is marketing this phone heavily with its Moto Mods which are quite expensive considering the phone itself costs INR 27,999. Moto z2 Play ticks almost all the boxes for it to be considered as a capable phone. Moto has also provided all the necessary sensors such as the accelerometer, compass, gyroscope etc  which is an icing on the cake.

Overall, the phone packs a punch with its capabilities and it a good addition to the Moto family, but still needs to be more capable if wants to beat the Oneplus 3T in this price range.
