    Been using for over a year now.

    Has stayed reasonably up to date with Security Updates.

    Camera has been competent.

    Battery life is still over a day in normal use.

    Bluetooth audio works as expected. No drops. I don't miss the 3.5mm headphone jack.

    I've had just enough days that I manage to drain the battery before days' end that I threw on a Tumi battery mod that was on sale, but overally I'm still quite happy with it too.

    A year for me as well. "Knock on wood" I have been mostly issue free, and have not dumped it in the water.

    A little over 10 months for me and still doing good as well. Two minor gripes are no 3.5mm headphone jack, not a big deal as I knew this going in and I don't really use headphones much. The other is the "shatter proof" screen. The screen is not flat, there are obvious waves in it. It also scratches way too easily. I put a glass screen protector on and there are a couple spots where it doesn't sit flat. I think I'd rather have a real glass screen. I'm very careful with my phone, and stuff happens, but give me gorilla glass.

    All that being said, it's probably the best phone I've ever had.

    Not sure what next year will bring or what my next phone will be. I've gotten Motorola phones for my wife and I for many years now because of them having the most stock Android OS, and also because of the good sized battery. I don't like that Moto shrunk the battery in the second generation Force and Play, probably to nudge people into buying the battery mod, but I've got maybe 14 months more with this phone and who knows what will be out by then, lol.

    I've always felt the Force was under appreciated. If it's not a samsung or crapple it just didn't get pushed as much by the sales force.

    I still absolutely love mine.

    Still live mine as well. Have had it for 13 months. Have had the Tumi battery mod since day 1 along with the Verizon screen protector. The only issues I had were constant freezing / rebooting, which has mostly gone away after a Factory Data Reset.

    Can you please post a link regarding the Z Force 3? I've seen some leaked pics of the Z3 and Z Play 3, but no specs and nothing regarding a Z Force 3. My Z Force 1 is still going strong, "knock-on-wood."

    My Z Force is still going strong as ever. Maybe just a little less battery life than when new, but still gets me through a day. I do plan on getting a Z3 later this year though...just because. I have not seen any Z3 specs, and anything right now is probably just rumors unless it was officially put out by Moto.

    I want to see the specs on the Z 3's, but I'd like to update this year. Especially if it becomes apparent that the Z 3 will be the last in its series. Too many mods to give up yet.

    My Moto Z Force bit the dust on Tuesday. Out of nowhere it wouldn't let me boot up, just flashing the top 20% of the screen. I let the battery run down thinking maybe there would be a chance when I turned it back on, but no luck. Of course it's the first smart phone I didn't get insurance on so my best option was an out of warranty certified like new replacement that was supposed to be delivered overnight on Friday, but of course it didn't. Oh well.

    22 months and counting. I have just a touch of screen burn at the top. I never remove the sound blaster. Use it every single day. This has been my favorite phone. Currently debating the camera mod.
