    I'm starting to feel a bit different about some of AC posts that exist on the homepage. One in particular that just bothered me a bit about "Best Android Phones for Long Battery Life". Seeing the graphic of the Samsung devices was no surprise because Samsung is really good at alot of things. They make great devices with cool features, nice cameras, etc. Being curious, I clicked on the link and saw the S7 Edge as the Overall Best device. It received the best overall, not solely on battery performance, but due to "camera quality, performance and speed".

    I'm willing to bet that the Z Play would outlast the S7 edge by a landslide, without the battery mod. But since the Edge has a better camera, it wins overall.

    Maybe someone can enlighten me on this, but there seems to be an awful lot of Samsung product on the main page. Is there a reason for this?

    Probably because they sell more than all other android manufacturers combined in the US, several times over I'd bet.

    The Moto z play definitely kills the s7 edge on battery life. Although it is only officially available on one carrier, or unlocked (later this month). And many people still buy from carriers, which is probably why the s7 edge was chosen. You can always ask Daniel why he chose it and he might be able to explain it to you.

    The battery life on this phone is astounding. So glad I returned the Droid Z with it's pipsqueak battery for this one. I see no discernible drop in performance, the camera is adequate and it looks good. Finally a phone that I can unplug in the morning and have zero worries about making it through a day. I hope they sell a #$#$-ton of these so manufacturers get a clue and follow suit.

    I'm ok with the camera. Indoors low-light takes a bit of a hit, but these are all just auto point-and-click, no playing with the settings. For me, a non-power user who snaps photos, uses navigation a lot, streams music a lot and uses Now a lot, this phone is damn near perfect.

    I feel that way even without the battery mod. My Z Play without the battery mod gets the same battery life as my Z Force (work phone) with the battery mod. Just incredible.

    It's possible that is without the mod. I've had the phone for 3 weeks and I'm averaging 13.5 hours SOT per charge. At least that's what gsam says.

    No mod, GPS highest accuracy, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth always on. Full disclosure I set the screen timeout to max and wasn't really using the phone a super lot but still...amazing.

    Why is there so much distortion on 2nd and 3rd pictures on the outside, left and right?

    DAVID ARGENTIERI,

    The picture of the porch and red door is using a custom frame effect that deliberately introduces an aged effect.

    I don't see distortion on the picture of the daisies. The flowers on the left side of the shot are a bit blurry, which I attribute to it being a close-up shot of the flowers.

    If you enlarge the photo of the outdoor furniture you can see some details. Notice the individual strands of mulch in the garden, for example, or the cross hatch pattern of the chair shadows on the ground. If it were possible to see this picture in its full size I bet the textured design on the lip of the flower pot would be distinct. Not too shabby for a 16MP camera. You wouldn't get this sort of detail with the 12MP camera in the N7 or the new Pixel phones.

    I don't know if the phone will get you 10 hours sot under that particular usage, but I do know that it will give you more usage than any other phone out there.

    S7 edge would get significantly worse battery life. It might be pushing it to get ten hours while gaming though on the Moto z play.

    Ugh.

    Since yesterday 8 in the evening to now 4 hours and 1 full day later, almost approaching mid night and thus the second day, I have been trying to drain the battery. I have had and am now again a 10 hour youtube video playing to test screen on time. I have been using the phone heavily while walking for 2 hours on 4G, with music playing, apping all the time. Been taking pictures here and there, apping a lot in the evening.

    I can't. It won't ******* die. I am at 24% and that's only because I have the 10h youtube vid playing again to test the screen on time.

    Might as well.

    People **** on Lenovorola for their updates. But damn they know their batterylife and (imo) design. Even last year the Moto X Play (which I had) was approaching this battery life. The Moto Z Play perfected it.
