Moto Z and Moto Z Force Droid Edition first impressions

moto-z-side-by-side

Hot on the heels of our Moto G4 and G4 Plus review, we’ve just got our hands on both the Lenovo Moto Z Droid Edition and Moto Z Force Droid Edition. So what are our first impressions? How do they immediately stack up against the former flagship in the Moto lineup, the Moto X Pure Edition?

The new Moto Z looks something like you might expect when you first open the box, with nothing but a square fingerprint scanner (a new Moto trademark) near the bottom of the phone with subtle “moto” branding right above it. But as soon as you lift it out, in the words of George Takei, oh my.

The Moto Z is indescribably thin. It’s shocking, but in the best way possible. Gripping the cool metal body feels fantastic. Some might find the device uncomfortably thin, but with a Moto Mod, it feels completely normal. Though, truth be told, we’re going to use the phone without one as often as possible.

It really feels incredibly high-end, a departure from the Moto X Pure Edition which certainly feels nice, but honestly can’t stand up to the Moto Z. As you might imagine, the screen and speed of the device both feel equally high-end, but you’ll have to wait for our full review for more details. For now, we’ll just say we haven’t been this excited about a phone in a long time.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below. We will try our hardest to answer them when we can.
