A capacitive touch screen ensures this phone is responsive and accurate, and the Android Marshmallow platform is simple to navigate. Corning Gorilla Glass 4 prevents scratches and shattering if the phone is dropped, and a 13-megapixel camera lets you capture memories with this Moto Z Droid thin smartphone.

I was using the galaxy s7 edge, which I really liked, but I was intrigued by the moto mods and I was also interested in trying out more of a stock Android experience. I am absolutely blown away by the smoothness and quickness of this phone. I also purchased the incipio off grid power pack and I got the JBL speaker mod for free. The mods are super nice and very easy to swap. I had originally preordered the force edition of this phone, but I ended up going with the regular z because of the thinness (I plan on using mods and so the thinness helps keep the overall size thin). My biggest concern with going with the z was the battery, but the battery seems to be doing quite well actually, and with the incipio power pack its more than enough! Anyways, I just wanted to let you all know that this is the most amazing phone I have ever owned, and I have owned a lot.

Best phone ever for $1.99
Posted by: MikeB from: on
The wife and I were due for an upgrade through Verizon. I as always look for the best deals and decided to once again checkout best buy since last time we were due for our 2 year upgrade they had the best deals. Never less once again they did. I paid $1.99 for my fantastic Motorola Moto Z Droid as my 2 year annual upgrade. I checked an actual Verizon store and they wanted $28 a month for 24 months( the length of our contract). I asked the Verizon rep how best buy can price there phones cheaper and all he said was we don't own the phones so there able to price them at whatever they want. Anyway at the deal of $1.99 with our new 2 year agreement, it was an unreal deal. Plus it came with a free JBL speaker Moto Mod that sells for $79.99 on its own. I cant believe both the wife and I got these phones and each a JBL Moto Mods for a total of $3.98. It would have cost my wife and I an extra $56 a month for these phones on top of our regular bill if I hadn't gone to best buy. The Moto Z Droid is the best phone I've ever had. I'm coming from a Samsung S4 and the wife iPhone 5s. Blows both phones out of the water in every aspect. Probably the best phone out to date

Great phone with none of the usual bloatware
Posted by: chris1993 from: on
So far this is a great phone! The feel of the Moto Z Droid in the hand is excellent, and the battery life in a charge cycle is pretty great as well. There is not a bunch of unwanted software or clunky user interfaces installed on top of this android setup like a lot of other popular phone makers do.
The mods that this phone uses are awesome as well. I love the shells that they make to snap on the back, and my phone came with one that has a wood back. No headphone jack is built into the phone, but it has an adapter it comes with allowing use of regular headphones.
There are a variety of security features. The fingerprint sensor is great because usually you dont even need to wake the screen. just touch the sensor and you are off!
Best phone ever overall I don't know why I left Moto! Will update review after having for awhile

Great Android Phone
Posted by: mmarquez0301 from: on
I am very happy with my purchase. I am a big fan of Android phones and upgraded to the Moto Z from a Droid Turbo. The phone has turbo charging and the battery lasts a full day with heavy use. Has all the same Moto features that my Droid Turbo had: Moto Voice command, chop for flashlight, twist for camera, etc. I received the JBL speaker Mod with the phone as a bonus from Best Buy and I really like the Mods feature and plan to buy the projector Mod in the future. It truly is just as easy as snap and go. Music doesn't stop playing and seamlessly changes to the speaker. Only thing to consider is that the Mods will only work when your phone is bare (no case). I find that I little annoying because I would not recommend owning this phone without a protective case. It is just too thin and so sleek it feels slippery to fall out of your hands. Overall, this is a great phone that I am very happy with and all the features it offers. Fun to show off to friends and co-workers!

After a lot of research I finally took the dive and got this phone and wow am I glad I did. This is a great device. I didnt buy it for the mods, although I will prob get the battery mod at some point, but instead got it because its a great phone even without the mods. Nice display, looks great, and fastest phone ive ever used. I came from previous moto phones so was easy to get use to. Also has moto active display and moto voice which I find to be a must have. Surprisingly Ive been getting 2 - 2 1/2 days out of a full charge depending on use. So far my only cons are that the active display doesnt pulse continuously after you get a message like previous moto devices. Hopefully they add that functionality back. Also the usb-c charger is a solid one piece so you cant take it apart and use with pc.

LOVE this PHONE!

Moto Z Droid - Fast Processor, Better reception, Moto Mod JBL Speaker works great as a speaker phone or mini sound system. 2TB support on the Micro SD slot. Has a USB C Turbo charger - charges fast. No headphone jack... comes with an adaptor if you need it. 32GB internal memory, 13MP camera and 5 MP camera... vivid photos.
Very slim... rounded edges. interchangeable backplates. Comes with a gray wood grain backplate.
Battery life is good also. if you leave blue tooth on... it will drain in about 24 hours.
Impressive phone. Recommended... at least put it on the top 3 list to evaluate and you will be sold.

Moto Z Droid is super-slim and expandable
Posted by: Dmonik from: Salem, MA on
When I first heard about the new Moto Z Droid Edition cellphone, I knew I had to get it, since I needed a replacement for my dying Droid Turbo quickly and the new phone looked promising. As a phone, the Moto Z does the job like all others do these days, but there are two good points to make for it. First, it's probably the thinnest, least bulky phone ever made; second, its capabilities can be expanded with "Moto Mods", special packs that snap onto the back and that do different things--I like this especially for the external battery pack that I got with the phone, which could expand its charge by many hours (and I rely heavily on battery power these days). In all, this is a great phone and one worth getting.

Great phone, but very bulky with mods
Posted by: JShandrew from: Logan, UT on
This is a great alternative to the Samsung/Apple saturated mobile phone market. This phone is still on par price-wise with either set of phones, however.
Pros: Excellent camera. 21 megapixel camera as opposed to the standard 12 megapixel camera with other phones.
Long battery life.
Shatter-proof screen (but not scratch proof, which is a con - you WILL need a screen protector).
As mentioned, the screen is easily scratched, so a screen protector is a must.
Cases that I've purchased will only work with the phone itself and must be removed to use mods.
Mods are very bulky.
Mods (other than the extended battery) eat battery power like crazy.
No water resistance (keep away from all sources of water).

Love my new phone
Posted by: RanB from: on
I got a great deal on this phone by extending my Verizon contract for another 2 years. I have been with them since 2001 so staying with them was not a tough decision. I am amazed at the performance of this phone and camera......super fast, great battery life, even when I recorded videos, superb still pictures and videos......I could not ask for a better phone. Absolutely no complaints or regrets.

Good phone great deal
Posted by: kms123 from: on
I purchased the phone during a promotion that took $200 off the price and also came with a free speaker. I ended up paying $7 less per month on device payments and had a much better phone. The one thing that I miss on this phone is an IR port. The modular back is great for being able to easily change the look and/or add on the speaker.
