    I currently have a Nexus 5 and so ready to upgrade. Been eyeing the new Google Pixel phones but depending on price, I just don't know.

    I have been hearing many amazing things about this phone and figured I would have a look.

    1. How is the battery life on this for everyone? I'm having to live on battery saving mode right now on this crappy 2300mAh

    2. Is this phone sold unlocked or just through carriers?

    3. How are OS updates on the Moto phones? Will it get Android 7 and Doze?

    I appreciate the help and feedback people.

    Battery life is excellent. Z Force is only sold through Verizon or through Moto to work on Verizon. Regular Z and Z Play also unlocked on Moto. Moto updates lately have been lacking, but all of these phones should get Nougat and perhaps one more update, but that's not guaranteed.

    Oh man, so I can't get the Force than since I'm not with Verizon? That's the only one that pleases me because of the battery.

    Yeah, that stinks. Now some get the Force and use it on ATT but it may be missing one of the LTE bands used in your area.

    I actually am typing this on my Z Force that came from Verizon but I have a cricket sim in it. It works flawlessly. Sure I still have Verizon bloatware but I've disabled it. This phone works with GSM too. Verizon did me wrong on some billing so I ported my number over to Cricket which runs off AT&T towers. No problems at all. It may be worth signing up with Verizon then porting over to Cricket. You will be thrilled with this device. I just got through watching Ironman 2 on it with my JBL Speaker. Plus unlimited data for 65 a month with Cricket.

    Look into the Moto Play Z. It is unlocked and battery life is better than the Force Z.

    Yeah the Z Play is a beast for battery life and an overall good phone according to most. I would probably go for it over the regular Z if I didn't have the option of the Z Force.

    I have both the Z Force (work phone) and Z Play (personal phone). I can't tell a difference in performance despite the difference in processors. And the battery life of the Z Play easily beats the Force, though the Force is still much better in that department than your average phone. Also, the headphone jack on the Play is nice. It's obviously personal preference, but even if both phones were the same price, I'd go with the Z Play.

    Thanks for that. Definitely keeping the Z Play in my mind next month.

    Just to play devil's advocate, price aside. The Force has the better camera, more and apparently faster RAM, faster processor and gpu if you play games. The Play has a glass back, the Force has a metal one plus shattershield. Many people say they don't see a difference between 1080p and 2k, but I do. Your mileage may vary.

    Force is Verizon only. I'm not down with that. The Play is perfect for me with huge battery and the phone is still super smooth and fast. Reviews show no lag and just as good as the 820
