    I currently have the G5 and the Moto Z Play. I have to pick one to keep. I am aware that they will both receive intermittent updates.

    Any input? Thanks!

    I would look at battery life. How do they compare?
    The Z Play will be updated to 7.0 in March. I have no idea about the G5.
    Build quality? The Z feels like a brick to me......but I like that. It feels like a solid well built device.
    Signal strength between the two would also help me decide.
    I am a huge Moto fan boy so just pointing out things that would help me.
    GSM Arena has a nice compare tool.
    Some things I noticed from the GSM compare.
    G5 has 820 processor, Play has 625.
    G5 has smaller screen.
    G5 has 554 pixel density, compared to 403.
    Both have fast USB C charging.
    G5 has 60h endurance rating and Play is 100h endurance rating.

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah, keep the MZP. A phone that works is better than one that bootloops.

    One of the best devices ever built vs. one of the worst (G5). Easy choice!

    Can you clarify - Moto Z or Moto Z Droid or Moto Z Play or Moto Z Play Droid?

    (Thread is currently in the Z Play forum)

    It is on the Moto z. Perhaps it is just not a high usage option in the pull-down so isn't visible unless you edit.

    Yeah it's there in the phone settings and even in the device manuals.

    But disabled.

    Should be no problems to enable, using miracast since android Ice Cream Sandwich

    Works on the Moto z fine, just put the phone display onto tv via cast.

    Does not work with my Roku box. Will not find my device. If this only works with a chromcast stick then this really sucks. Why?
