    I'm curious just how much better battery life will be on the Z Play than the Z Force.

    Mr mobile mentioned that the Moto z sometimes won't last a day whereas the Moto z play got him through the day with about half battery life left.

    Which is similar to the Z vs Z Force. I would guess similar battery life between the Play and Force, with a slight advantage to the Play for its lower resolution display and lower power processor.

    A marketing email from Moto I got today promoting the Play touted "up to 50 hours battery life". On Moto's website for the Force they claim "up to 40 hour battery". So if real life lines up with marketing, about 20% longer battery life vs the Force? That's a heckuva battery!

    40 to 50 is a 25% increase. Which is a lot, for the same size battery.

    Fair enough, did my math backward.

    I'm assuming it's mainly because of two factors - lower resolution screen and lower power CPU on the Z Play vs. the Z FORCE. Plus, isn't the Z Play battery just a wee bit larger? (Edit - Next time I'll read the entire thread before posting as I see YAY already mentioned these factors.)

    Yes, like 0.3% larger.
