Motorola’s Moto Z2 Force couldn’t have asked for a better – or tougher – test over the last week, as it became my go-to phone on back to back events. The tl:dr? It’s an evolutionary follow-up to the first-gen Moto Z Force, for better and worse. Full disclosure, I’ve always had a soft spot for the Z’s raw and rugged design when there isn’t a Moto Mod attached to the back. When I saw that it had loaded up with upgraded specs and a thinner design, I was mighty curious to see how the changes played out.
When you’re buying a Moto Z-device, the first thing you need to understand is that it’s one of very few modular devices available on the market today. When Motorola released both the Moto Z and Z Force last year, it just didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me; I even speculated that, next time around, there would only be a single device. As I envisaged it, Motorola would slim down the Z Force – even if it meant sacrificing the size of the battery – then slot in the latest gen-processor from Qualcomm and, finally, boost the camera quality. Arguably that’s just what Motorola has done with the Z2 Force, so is this the perfect combination of both predecessors?
