    Hey fellow Moto fans,

    I just ordered an unlocked Z Play from Motorola. Motorola sent me a 10% off code after I kept putting it in the cart. I'm running a Moto X Pure Edition right now, and it's been great except for the battery life.

    Looking forward to my new Z Play and its huge battery life, and the Mods of course.

    Cheers!

    Do you have an AT&T phone/account currently?

    Are you just planning on putting your old sim card into the new MZP?

    This is 312MotoGus coming to you from his sexy-new Moto Z Play, which is a slightly unfortunate name for such a cool device.

    I reused my old SIM, everything is working fine.

    Glad to hear. Let me know how you're doing a month from now. I had LTE initially for about 3 weeks til AT&T degraded my signal because they considered an unknown device. After 5 months of going back & forth, I hot swapped my son from last phone to the MZP & I now have LTE data again.

    Very smooth phone when all is working. The incipio battery mod is quite sweet.

    EDIT: It's been about a week since I posted, but I'm back to H+ service. I lost LTE service again a reboot. Hot swapping the simple isn't bringing back the service.

    How are you liking your Z Play after a month with it?

    Short answer: it rules.

    Long answer: it's like butter, baby! It's great- Moto Mods are my life now. Not really, but the Moto Mods system is well done and fun to play with. The phone is fast and smooth. The camera is ok, not great but gets the job done. The screen is vivid indoors, but even in my car on a sunny day, it's not quite bright enough. Build quality is fantastic, it feels like a single piece.

    And the battery life? Oh man. I find myself running out of day before battery. Routinely getting 7+ hours of SOT. A couple times got over 10. Going to bed with 30% battery. Just went almost 30 hours without charging.

    I'm getting the Incipio car dock for my b-day this week. Looking forward to more Mods.

    Amazing! Thank you for answering my question and for your review!

    Dumb question I'm sure, but does the Z Play have an LED light? I forget. I'm really impressed with the battery life and your SOT. I'm thinking the Moto Z Play's next iteration may be my next phone. How is the speaker quality? Camera is cool - as long as it gets the job done, I'm okay with whatever haha.

    If they improve the camera and double the memory to 64 I am definitely getting a Moto Z Play 2 this year. It's a fantastic phone. Only issue is if they will keep routinely updating the phone which is always a concern with Moto devices.

    They did improve the camera on z2 play, it comes with Sony camera from g5 plus/s7 edge which was rated best in class. Memory I'm not sure about but micro sd solves that problem.

    How do you know this? They have not officially announced the specs for the next gen Z Play.

    Forgot to mention that as a down side, the 32GB max memory. I was spoiled with my MXPE's 65GB of space. It didn't care what I threw on there. Have to be more careful with the ZPlay.

    Or buy a 64 gb memory card (they're pretty cheap these days) and use it as adoptable storage. Problem solved😬

    Camera stuff has been kinda leaked, along with 1mm thinner design and 15% less battery . . .

    Yup. Saw evidence of this in another forum thread. But I'm holding out until we see/know for sure!

    I just got mine this evening and I use cricket which of course runs AT&T and it's been perfect. No bumps or anything. Even watched half a movie no interruptions at all. Service is great.

    I just picked up the Z Play this afternoon. I initially had the Z Force way back when first released when I was with a carrier. I am actually seeing no difference between the two phones really at all. Performance is plenty and of course battery is the best. Now I need to buy another JBL Speaker as it by far was my favorite mod. Hoping next week I'll grab one. Congrats on your Z Play too.
