    The waterproof case looks neat. I wouldn't buy a waterproof camera but a snap-on case I could bring into the lake with the kiddos would be cool.

    That actually looks pretty good and I can see myself using that.

    I never understood why Moto didn't make the Turbo 2 water resistant, especially since the cheaper G was. Now, with the S7, and the next iPhone rumored to have water resistance, it's hard to understand why the Z Force doesn't as well. Perhaps this explains it. And, if you want wireless charging, you'll have to pay extra for that feature as well (not to mention that you can't have both features at the same time).

    Based on the officially announced items, the Power Pack gets you wireless charging.

    However, I can see someone making a cheaper wireless charging back that isn't also an battery pack.

    That's what I'm getting at, isn't the Power Pack another add on that you have to pay for? Something that is included with many other phones. And, if you want wireless charging, you don't get water resistance at the same time.

    The Moto line hasn't included wireless charging in any phone so far.

    That may be true, but the latest Droids, made by Motorola, have.

    It is a nano coating only... It most likely would not survive even a quick dip in 1/2" of water.

    Yeah that nano coating is accidents only. I saw a video of a moto x with the nano coating dying after a 5 second dip in a sink.

    It's too bad the X and the Z don't have an ip rating. The nano coating really is only for spills and splashes.

    Totally agree with the missed opportunity Moto had to seriously compete with the S7 by introducing MotoMods and IP certified waterproofing. Moto didn't think consumers cared as much about waterproofing, which is why it wasn't on the G either, but everyone I know who has an S7 brags about how they don't need to worry about it getting wet. Why Moto why!!!

    No, and I've been looking. I'm thinking about the Z Force, but the lack of water resistance (or a water resistant mod) is pushing me towards the N7.

    I had a Google Now card this morning that stated Moto was to announce new mods at IFA later this month. I didn't read the article, but who knows, maybe soon.

    I saw something similar on another tech site and the article said that Moto is going to announce some additional mods on August 31st. If Moto has a waterproof mod, as was leaked previously, you would think we would see it on the 31st, but who knows.
