    I traded in my Force for the Play to save some money. The Force is an awesome phone with great battery life, but the Play's battery life is out of this world. I'm amazed. It destroys the battery life of even powerhouses like the original Droid Maxx and Turbo.
    Maybe this will show manufactures most people don't need the largest processor, we would prefer battery life over some powerhouse. Plus we can add the battery mod as well.

    I'm not here to argue. Just pointing out that Verizon will honor the warranty/ insurance if you have it added to your line to help someone else that may be confused and reading this post. You can opt to take advantage of that or not. No big deal to me.


    Open enrollment for the insurance is good until Thursday if you don't have it on your line already.
    Agreed. didn't mean to come across argumentative.

    Motorola did this with the first Moto X.
    That was scoffed by many because it also had a slower cpu than other flagships at the time. But it performed quite well and better than some with faster cpu's.

    I agree 100%. I think you will be happy with your choice. One thing is for sure. The battery life is insanely good.
    Awesome. Debating the battery mod down the road. Maybe there will be black Friday specials.

    No way you'll need battery mod unless you use the phone while camping or away from a charger for over 24 hours. This thing can withstand even the heaviest of use.

    It's no wonder they held this phone back and released the two more expensive options first. I kinda feel the same way I did when I had my Moto X with the walnut back. I do love that twist of the wrist to start the camera. I probably will get that JBL mod for when I am sitting on the deck.
    Would it be wrong to assume these were planned out before Lenovo took over with the amount of mods available?

    Exactly, that's why people should vote with their money. I just did

    Never would've thought Samsung making the worst smartphone this year and Levono the Best.

    Hilarious. Well done Moto.

    They started looking into the modular design during the later days of being owned by Google. The phone hardware is still very much Lenovo, but the concept goes back further.

    The Z Play really is a compelling option, especially for the price compared to the regular Z. Better battery, better camera (it would appear), headphone jack, cheaper, versus thinner phone with higher res screen and a faster processor.

    Have not missed that faster cpu or higher res screen at all. I do like the three Ben Franklins that I got to keep. Until I got home

    I'm hoping they will throw in a JBL mod or battery Mod in the future.

    If you buy a Z Force from Moto directly and use a coupon code MOTOZPOWER. Nothing for the Play though.

    Only one extra Benjamin or so here plus the JBL speaker is worth it to me. Better camera, better processor, shattershield (means I'm not paying for insurance every month), (although some don't like that screen), more durable back, versus even better battery life plus headphone jack. You can't go wrong with either one.

    Plus, it's a lot easier to self insure your phone when it costs $408 than when it costs $720.

    Battery mod can get you wireless charging. That alone is worth it to some (me).

    I'd rather have quick charge. Can plugging your phone in via usb charge the phone and battery pack or not?

    So far I like the phone a lot, though I feel a bit bizarre carrying naked at the moment. I forgot my charger at home, so will see how long the battery lasts. So far at 91%, not too shabby

    I got 7 hours of screen time yesterday with 40% left to go before ending the day. I was on it all day, downloading a few gigs of music from Google Play, posting here, FB, installing apps and tweaking the phone, texting. I can honestly say I have never been as happy with a purchase as I am with this device so far
