Was really looking forward to Moto going to all carriers so I could grab one this year....But that battery is so damn small that I think I'll be skipping this. Good luck with your brilliant plan of charging $700 for a phone and then asking ppl to bulk it up AND add another $80 just to make it usable.

It doesn't turn on unless you have the battery mod? Didn't know that.

It'll turn on and then die right around lunch time. I guess my wording was wrong.

The phone comes with a battery that has a 16 hour standby time so not sure why previous poster said it would die by lunch time. There are other battery mods you can buy if you need more batter life.

Yeah I don't judge by standby time because if I'm paying $750 for a phone I want to actually use the thing.

I've been a Moto fan for quite a long time and I honestly cannot stand this stupid mindset to drive ppl to buy these mods. SO much praise for the Moto Z Play last year and yet this year they decided to force their customers into purchasing these mods when nobody cares or wants the mods.

You do realize that newer chips and screens require less power, hence stop with your subject opinion that a smaller battery capacity means less hours a phone could operate on.

I never said that a smaller capacity means less hours a phone can operate.(Although that likely is the case) The fact is that this isn't enough for me and it's just plain greed by a company to make the battery smaller in order to sell more addons. It's the same thing with Apple and removing a headphone jack....They didn't need to do it. That thing takes up no space and doesn't cost them an arm and a leg to make but they do save some money and now they get to charge $5 or more for a dongle that they produce for pennies.

People want MORE battery life and not less so even with the improved screens and chips that means if they'd kept the battery capacity the same then they'd have IMPROVED them and not just done a maybe lateral move. Also I could be wrong but idt last months Moto Z play 2 is better than last years Moto Z play even with an improved screen and chip.

I don't consider this a good "deal" and I don't like the direction this company is going. If you do then by all means thumbs up the deal and give your subject opinion on whatever you like. But my subject opinion is that it's not good enough for my needs.

Well, the Moto Z2 Play also has a super power efficient battery chip: the new Snaprdagon 626 built on a 14nm architecture, a key component to delivering excellent battery longevity. However, it also has a 15% smaller battery than the original.

The official battery figures on the Z2 Play quote 30 hours of battery use, while on the Moto Z Play the same measurement stood at 50 hours. So no, don't expect quite the same solid 2-day battery life, but do expect a still great one to one and a half day battery here. What are the rest of the differences between the new Moto Z2 Play and the Moto Z Play? Find out in our specs comparison right below

The battery is Battery 2730 mAh and is rated for 27.36 hours of standby according to the website. Where did you get a 16 hour standby time from?

The Moto Z2 Play is totally a lateral move, but has a few marginal improvements (the glass back on the Z Play scratches way too easily). This Z2 Force, though, seems to be more of a loser in all the important respects. Almost 25% less battery and an $800 asking price? No more RAM, same resolution, so what do we get? A thinner frame? Not worth $800. Lenovorola fail.
