    I currently have a S8 and I've been looking at a Moto Z series. Can someone please explain to me what the difference is? Is there really a difference at all? Or at least a noticeable one? Thanks.

    I'm a moto fan, but since you would be coming from a Samsung, which have the best screens in the industry, you probably would be disappointed.

    it makes a difference which carrier you are. The Moto Z-Force has a shatterproof screen and is the more premium version with a higher-resolution screen as well. The Moto Z play has better battery life and has the headphone jack. Are you thinking about the first generation or are you thinking about the current Z2 family or phones?

    The main difference is the ability to use Moto Mods...and a near stock Android OS vs Samsung heavily skinned version of Android.

    Larger battery
    Headphones jack

    decisions decisions. it would be great if they combined the two phones. They would have a pretty awesome phone then. I was thinking first gen for either one. I hate having to pay monthly for my phone so that's why I'm getting rid of my S8. plus the fact that my screen is cracked and it's $260 to fix it. I had a Moto X 2nd gen before and it was one of my favorite phones. So that's why I want to go back to Motorola.

    Today is last day you can grab the MZ2P for 349. On second thought that might have ended yesterday.
