    I was on the fence for a while about which to get, and ended up getting the Droid Z. I knew I wanted to keep the battery mod on all the time and the Z Force was too heavy (for my taste) to do that. Absolutely love the phone with the battery mod. Also picked up the bumper case and it fits perfectly on the Z.

    I opted for the Z Force for the larger built in battery.

    Yeah, I'd thought about the Z+battery mod vs Z Force, and you end up spending about the same money, and getting about the same battery life, so the more compact Z Force (without battery mod) plus better camera and shatterproof screen won. Plus I have the option of using a battery mod on the Force if I'm ever going to use it a LOT without being able to plug in. Like when I travel during the holidays.

    I handled both at Verizon and then at best buy. I kept reaching for the Force. The regular Z just was too thin for my liking. It would have been a great phone as well but I tend to lean towards the top end specs anyway. Plus the Force really isn't that thick relatively speaking when you just have a regular case back mod on. The battery does give it some weight but the thickness I can deal with. I did keep one small phone for my second line which I sold my iPhone SE and opted to try the 5 inch Sony Experia XA. It's a pretty good phone actually. Plus I was able to get at $200 from best buy new unlocked instead of $250 so I jumped in it.

    Back to the Force. 95 percent of the time, I keep my Tumi Battery on it. I Never run out of battery life. Heck the only reason I charge it is to charge the Tumi back up. My phone hasn't seen under 60 percent since I bought it.

    I looked at both the Z and Z force this weekend at Verizon. I honestly could hardly see any difference between the two screens side by side. At least in the in store lighting. I tried 50% and max brightness. It was nothing like comparing the dimmer shatterproof droid turbo 2 screen to an OG droid turbo

    Also people said bezel is bigger (screen/bezel ratio) on force. If it is, it didn't look significant at all
