    Hi Allen, I'm currently on a Nexus 5 and thinking of replacing it soon (still love the Nexus but battery life is not great these days). Could you give a quick comparison of the benefits you've noticed after moving to the Z Play? And any downsides too? Thanks in advance.
    I'm google through and through and I'm so shocked on this phone. I'm now on day 4 with Only a 30 min charge yesterday before work. I'm so happy I got this phone because it handles everything and more that a flagship 820 chipset can do. You have 0 lag and slow downs and it's extremely fluent. The new Google Pixel just didn't cut it for me with prices so I jumped. And I'm so thankful I did. Definitely do it bro. You won't regret it. I got the unlocked GSM because I like going everywhere I want and also no bloatware from Verizon and such.

    I had the Nexus 5x. Better battery life, animation and performance are better, and better white balance and focus in the camera. Design and build quality is a huge improvement compared to the plastic of the Nexus. I don't see any downsides with my usage; but this phone is 5.5 inches; which is larger than the Nexus 5... if you like smaller phones.

    I agree with everything you said. I have the play and the pixel. I really like the software on the pixel but the play will get n update soon. I took my play and pixel to the pumpkin patch with with family to test out pics. I thought the pics looked like crap on the play until I pulled them up on my computer and they looked much better. The play is not really any slower in day to day use. I don't game so I can t comment on that but opening apps and watching YouTube the play is right there. The only thing that is a big difference is the screen. I think the screen on the pixel is really good. Right there with the note 7. Is that worth $500 more, probably not.

    Yeah once the 7 update happens, the Play will definitely be better. And it's the same here with pictures. They are so good. I see the quality so much more once there posted online and such. I just absolutely love this phone. And like I said before, my main gripe was battery and this phone by far exceeds that and more. Plus I even have the Moto mod back charger thing but haven't even needed it. I love it.

    Thanks for the responses. It will be unlocked GSM for me as I'm in the UK.

    How does the phone feel in the hand compared to the Nexus 5? Size-wise and weight-wise?

    Also I was considering the Incipio mod for the wireless charging - how does the phone feel with that attached?

    The Z Play is a lot bigger than the Nexus 5. It's not an easy phone to use with one hand. But that's the trade-off for a bigger screen.

    If your goal is to get through a full day no matter what, you can do it with the Z Play without the battery mod. Easily. You couldn't kill this phone in a single day if you tried.

    That said, to answer your question, the battery mod doesn't make the phone too big or thick, but it adds a lot of weight.

    Sure you could. No way you could play Pokemon Go for 14 hours straight without recharge or battery mod.

    But for more normal levels of "heavy" use, yeah, a day should be very doable. Very few people's use case wouldn't make it through a day.

    I suppose, though I don't know who could play Pokémon for 14 straight hours. The point was obviously that the battery mod isn't needed on the Z Play.

    I totally agree. I have the mod and I absolutely see no point in using it yet. It will be for when I'm traveling on vacations lol. This phone is absolutely incredible and unbelievable on battery life. What I always wanted which I thought never existed, does in this phone. And here I thought I would never leave the Google Nexus/Pixel brand. Thank God for their high pricing this year which led me to do much research.

    Someone trying to run down the battery, I guess. lol I was just responding to the "if you tried" part of what you said. If you try, you can, but you'd have to try hard! 😀

    The other reason I was considering the Incipio Mod was for the wireless charging. Anyone heard of any back plates with just QI charging but no battery?

    That would awesome. Motorola/Lenovo has a $1 million contest going that they will award to a third party vendor for best new mod, so someone is probably working on it. 😀

    What I also like about this contest is it probably shows a commitment to continue developing mods for awhile.

    More like desperation. They expected lots of folks to offer mods. They didn't. If they don't get some more innovative mods going to make Moto worthy, the concept will probably die. I have the projector and it's occasionally useful, but not a reason to buy the phone. The battery mod is useful if you have one of the other Moto models with smaller battery/higher power drain. That adds convenience compared to some external solution. When I got my Play it was BOGO, so got the battery as a conservative back-up in case something unexpected happens, like being stuck somewhere without ready access to power (BTDT). But I only got it because of BOGO. My old Morphie would do the trick, albeit not as elegantly.

    Yeah, those were my thoughts too. Shows commitment to the concept and should also create more interest in it as well as showcasing potential mods for the future. I'm impressed with how Motorola is handling the modular system. LG must be watching with envy right now.

    I guess desperation is a possibility, but I would have thought that they would have given it a bit more time than this before panicking personally. At the end of the day if they had only released the ones available at launch and then not made anymore or looked into any other possibilities, they would have received the same criticism for doing that as LG got. As far as I can see, the fact that they are looking to get people involved and extend the range is a good thing, and maybe actually shows that Motorola are quietly confident that they can make it a success. LG failed miserably with their attempt at modularity so they didn't bother making any more. If rumours are to be believed LG may well be giving up on the modular concept altogether already. So as I say, Motorola may actually think theyre onto a good thing and are therefore following up on it, rather than be feeling desperate. Who knows? Time will tell.

    Agreed. I go out and as corny as it is, I show and express how many days of battery life I reach because they complain about theirs. Last night at the bar I was almost to day 4 with no charge. I absolutely love this phone and definitely promoting the hell out of it for more business to Moto and Lenovo

    I think it's a little early to make this assumption. Motorola's biggest issue with the mods is the cost, not their implementation. Of course, demand impacts cost. Guess we'll see how things play out. No pun intended.
