Now back in stock on Motorola.com for $149 for 32gb model with 2 free style shells. They also have the 64gb model with a power pack or Alexa mod for $229 with 2 style shells. if you qualify they have free financing with 0 percent APR.

Without activation this is a better deal.

I can see that if you're comparing a high end phone to something like the Motorola E series... but for 95% of the planet, the Moto Z range (or even the G range) is going to be perfectly fine.
I agree if you never had better you wouldn't know any different

3 or 3a? 3 costs much more, so not the fairest comparison. Either way both have a superior camera, regular updates, and 10.

Don't make assumptions... I've used top end phones as well. If you're willing to pay X-times more to buy a flagship phone, so be it. The reality is that mid-range phones work well for most people.

I know people think they need flagship phones and that's great... it's the reason I own Apple stock, but not an Apple phone.

How do you add the folio case to cart?
Not sure. I think just search for it. I didn't purchase just saw in the fine print.

Whatever you say. Good chatting with you. Go compare a z3 play next to a s10 you'll want the s10.

I got one last time it was on sale for $130 I believe. It's a little bit bigger than the iPhone XR. Colors are great and it's not slow even after using 80% of the storage. I'm happy with it and it was cheap.

You're making the wrong comparisons... I'm not arguing that the S10 isn't a better phone and price is no object, I'd buy an S10 (or similar).

The comparison is an S10 vs. a Z3 Play and multiple hundreds of $$$ still in your pocket.

If you value the phone that much, I'm not questioning your choice... but to say that's the better deal for most people is ridiculous.

No it's not. Pixel 3 has a snapdragon 845 (flagship level) and a much better camera.
This will have better battery life than the pixel 3.
Also, you can play music and take a picture at the same time on this phone. Not sure if the pixel 3 still has the memory problems with the camera?

Pixel 3a has the somewhat faster (vs 636) snapdragon 670 and a better camera as well. But apart from the camera, it's not much better. Similar.

This is like saying go compare a Kia Optima to an Mercedes S class. Well, uh, yeah, of course you'll want the S class.

The S10 costs $850. This costs $150.

Well If you are going to spend $150 you might as well check out the renewed pixel 2 xl on Amazon. It has a snapdragon 835 (2 year old flagship) which is what the Verizon Z3 has.
$170 for the white currently. That's cheapSmilie

I replaced my Galaxy S7 (dying battery) with a Z3 Play and have been pleasantly surprised. The camera isn't as good, but is certainly good enough. Everything else feels equal or better. Android Auto in particular works much better.

Not a bad alternative... biggest issues are 90 day warranty (though you could buy extended coverage) and 2+ y/o battery.

I only see this in the fine print, and a search didn't find any Z3 Play case.
Get two free moto style shells, must add to cart, while supplies last.

If you have used moto z play then stay away from this model, this is simply worst.
