    The Moto Z Play Droid is now available for $408 plus the outrageous $20 upgrade fee.

    Verizon is gonna Verizon.

    Awesome. I thought I read they were enforcing that fee on phones purchases elsewhere as well.

    This is my understanding as well. Tax, but no upgrade fee.

    As someone who's still using a 2014 moto x, this phone seems like a nice upgrade. Shame Moto doesn't update their phones. I'm tempted by the battery and moto features I've become so used to... but... no thanks, Lenovo.

    Mine had one before I cancelled it. Did you buy outright or get a subsidized price?

    What a great price. If I didn't have my Force I would be tempted.

    Software support. Moto sells you what's on the shelf, and that's what you get, forever. I went to see the phone this morning, it's pretty nice, maybe a little awkward in the hand (I miss their slim bezels). I would have bought it if my Moto x had gotten some security updates along the way, or a Marshmallow update. It's not like they had 30 different flagships to support... they could have done better.

    Fair enough. I'm hooked on the active display so I am giving this phone a shot in lieu of no Moto X this year. Not paying $700 for a phone, and won't pay subsidized to lose UDP.

    And if you have any warranty issues you have to deal with Lenovo. I you buy at Verizon and add the protection, you deal with them and next day service.

    I'm not sure if that's true. In the past as long as I have had the warranty protection on my phone plan and Verizon carries it, doesn't matter where I originally bought the phone.

    Since Verizon didn't carry the past two unlocked versions of the Moto X, it was not available for warranty protection.
    Confirmed. http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho...d.php?t=581013

    Not the same. If it a mechanical failure is covered under warranty, why would you go thru your insurance? That costs you a deductible. And why would I not want the configuration I paid for? You have to go to the manufacturer for warranty repairs. My Droid Turbo 2 developed the "green line" issue and Verizon would not handle the repair since I had not bought one of the pre configurations in the store, I had to deal with Lenovo myself. Had an issue years before with Moto X configured thru Moto maker, same deal.

    I agree 100%. I think you will be happy with your choice. One thing is for sure. The battery life is insanely good.

    Also, this is my first device with a FP sensor and it works extremely well and fast on the Play. Very glad I made this purchase.

    You are missing out. For $400 this device is a huge upgrade from the 2014 X.

    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.

    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.
