    BTW: This forum is a great resource for all looking to buy or troubleshoot problems.
    In process of selling a Pixel. Don't think I'll go "pure" android again.
    Have great memories of og Moto X hope it's repeated with Moto Z Play.
    Was a toss-up with Sony's Xperia line, they do it right also.
    Time will tell, of course.
    Don't notice any "terrible" problems on the forum boards with the Z Play and most sites say it's a great phone.
    I will post any unusual experiences with my new phone on this board.

    Congrats on the new phone purchase. My wife loves her Z Play, seems like a solid device. I like my Z Force a lot also.

    Do you plan on buying any Moto Mods to use with the new phone?

    Still loving mine. Some oddities at times but have that with all phones.

    Have bought the JBL soundboost mod and the Incipio wireless battery mod.
    Both highly recommended via review blogs.
    Seems professional reviewers are quite taken with Moto Z Play.
    One professes wireless battery mod makes this a must have device.
    Other lists SoundBoost as can't do without.
    Being both hard of hearing and a wireless disciple am giving both a go.
    The mods will be delivered about same time as the phone.
    Bought the SoundBoost from Verizon, thinking it fits on unlocked Z play.
    We shall see.

    From what I've experienced with my Z Play in the 2 weeks I've had it, you will have little use for the battery mod except for wireless charging. Battery life on the Z Play is pretty amazing!

    All the Moto Mods fit all of the Z phones, that's one of the cool things about the Z series.

    Phone was delivered yesterday. Incipio Wireless battery will be today.
    Sent the JBL SoundBoost back.
    For the amount of time it would be used couldn't justify it.
    Have high hopes for battery mod....we shall see.

    Going to keep the Incipio Wireless battery mod.
    If for no other reason: wireless.
    Bulks up the phone a bit...not terribly, can live with it.
    nice.

    I don't carry mine on the phone every day, but do use it often when I travel for work. I chuckle when I see other folks in airports​ stopping to find power outlets; I just snap on my Incipio battery and keep on moving.

    The Sound boost is definitely a personal preference, but I have found I use mine quite often at the office.

    Sounds like a good plan.
    Will try the phone out utilizing just it's own battery, test it with my usage.
    Might use the Incipio only when off grid for a period of time.

    Sent back all previous purchased mods...then bought the bare wireless charging mod. Also ordered a leather wallet case. Battery mod on this phone seems like overkill.
    Have bought into wallet case concept. Once utilized makes other solutions seem messy/moot. Of course I doubt the wireless charging will work through the leather case. Who knows, when delivered it might surprise me. An ideal would be a leather wallet which included the Mod concept for wireless charging. [Wallet + wireless charging =mod]
    Just saying.

    Tried utilizing Google's Daydream Viewer but it was ng.
    Wife's Pixel will be needed for that.
    Can't complain, MZP is sold as mid-level.
    Still, more than powerful enough for most everything I try.
    Now my only concern is SW updates.
    Wife's Pixel just got OTA update to O.
    Don't know Lenovo's update policy but would hope for regular updates.
    Time will tell.
