    Where I live, there is a store selling the Moto Z bundled with the true zoom mod and the Moto 360 camera mod, all brand new for approximately $450. Can any long term users comment on this phone's performance, any niggling issues, etc?

    Planning to get the Turbo power pack to counter its measly battery life.

    From what I have read, the smaller battery is actually providing better battery life than the original Z Force, due to the newer chip used in the Z2.

    well the Moto Z has "only" the Snapdragon 820 right? I think you may have it confused with Z2 Force

    Battery is going to suck.

    Camera isn't great.

    I have the original Moto Z with Incipio battery pack. I think it's great. I would love to have the camera mod because I use my camera all the time. Sounds like a solid deal.

    I know everyone's usage pattern is different but can you give an idea how long your phone lasts with the Incipio pack?

    I use the efficiency mode so right now after 16.5 hours of use my Incipio is at 14% and the phone battery is at 80%. Even with heavy use I don't think you can go to zero in both batteries. I'll take off the battery to use the JBL speakers for half an hour then put the Incipio mood back on. I plug it in when I go to bed and it easily last the whole next day no matter how much I use it. I've had the Mon go to zero and the main phone battery go to 70%, but that's the lowest it's ever gone.

    The Moto Mod software was just recently updated to support an on/off toggle for charging via a Moto Mod battery.

    I think a lot of owners that use the Power Pack/battery Moto Mods have significantly reduced the battery life of the battery in the phone because the mod will constantly charge (or charge if under 80%).

    Will it be better to just Turbo charge the phone with the Turbo power pack instead of using the efficiency mode then? Say beginning at 30-40 percent battery
