Motorola Moto Z Play Features

Lenovo India launched it's Moto Z and the Moto Z Play phones in India in October 2016, the same day when Google announced Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL. Moto Z being the elder brother to the Moto Z Play is a flagship device from the Moto brand whereas the younger brother Moto Z Play is a dumbed down variant.

Design and Display

Much like the Moto Z, the Moto Z Play has got a glass on the back with metal sides. The phone looks premium and is good to hold. On the front of the device sits a 5.5 inch Full HD (1920x1080 pixels) AMOLED display that gets a pixel density of 401PPI. There is Gorilla Glass protection on the display.

Hardware and Features

In terms of performance, the Moto Z Play sounds like a decent bet. The phone sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor that is clocked at 2GHz and paired along with the processor is 3GB of RAM. On the software front you get the standard clutter free Stock Android Marshmallow out of the box and is said to receive Android Nougat update soon. Apart from the performance, Moto Z Play also sports a fingerprint sensor on the front and below the display. Also the phone has water repellent nano-coating.

Camera and Storage

The rear camera of the Moto Z Play is a 16MP sensor with Laser Autofocus & Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) that ensures fast focus locking and the Dual Tone LED Flash ensures natural looking shots and videos. The rear camera can record videos up to 4K. On the front you get a 5MP selfie shooter that can also be used for video calling. The front camera also has an LED Flash to lighten up those low lit party places. To store all the pictures and other data you get 32GB onboard storage that can be further expanded up to 2TB MicroSD card.

Battery and Connectivity

To power all these great specs there is a 3510mAh battery that supports TurboPower technology to quickly charge the huge battery via a USB Type-C port. Unfortunately, the device lacks wireless charging support. Talking about connectivity, the phone accepts Dual Nano SIM cards and supports 4G LTE in India with VoLTE.

Moto Z Play gives you exactly what you need, when you need it. Moto Mods transform your mobile experience in a snap. They seamlessly attach, becoming one with your phone, turning your Moto Z Play into a movie projector, boombox, battery powerhouse and more. You can even play for days without recharging.
