Buy Motorola Z2 Play At Rs.16990 at Amazon.

If you are a Moto Mod fanatic, then Moto z2 Play won't be a disappointing choice. The subtle design amendments to the pre-gen phone add an aura to the design by giving it a more sleek and tidy appearance. The battery life is commendable but not as good as the predecessors. All day long battery life and up to the benchmark performance can convince you to reach your wallets. Although there is nothing admirable about the camera, it is decent enough to click good pictures.
From its sleek design to its efficient performance, everything is spectacular about Z2 Play. However, if Moto Mods don’t interest you, it is worthless of your investment as this level of performance and durability can be purchased for much less. Moto Z2 Play is a splendid phone but is much like a shadow of its predecessor: Moto Z play. Z2 Play is thinner but costlier. So, identify your needs and requirements prior buying the phone and mod accessories.
According to the studies, the Smartphone Industry is the most attractive and competitive sector in today's world. With around 35-40 mobile phones launching every month, provides the buyer a myriad of options to choose from, but also makes them indecisive and they keep blowing hot and cold until they find a product which stands out from the crowd.
Based on the modular functionality concept, Motorola and Lenovo launched Moto Z Play last year, which turned out to be a huge success. Moto Z2 Play is the successor of Moto Z Play, which features some key improvements and even more Moto Mod accessories, making it one of the most compelling midrange choice. It’s fully compatible with a range of the company’s Moto Mods and that too at a very affordable price. However few compromises have been made, but a little change does no harm. Having Aluminum unibody design (Corning Gorilla Glass 4), with the display of 5.5-inch, 1920x1080 px, Super AMOLED, 401 ppi, this phone features 4GB RAM and 64GB internal, microSD expansion. It is a Dual Sim model with Bluetooth 4.2, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11n, A-GPS/GLONASS, NFC, USB-C and 3.5mm headphone jack. It also has a fingerprint sensor, FM radio, Moto Mod support; water-repellent nano coating that makes it resistant to water spills.
In terms of hardware, its Splash protecting nano coating gives it an edge over other competitors. You get to choose from two RAM options: 32 or 64 GB. It has storage of 64 GB, which can be extended up to 256 GB via microSD card. The audio experience is, unfortunately, a turn off because of a single speaker unit embedded in the earpiece. Also, the speaker at the front adds up to the skew sound system. While the oval fingerprint sensor works perfectly fine providing reliability and speed for unlocking.
Coming over to design, Moto Z2 Play is much better than its predecessor. The first gen: Z Play is a chunky device, as it is built mainly from plastic, but the second gen: Z2 Play is very much nicer. The plastic is replaced with metal and the unit is marginally thinner, adding sleek charisma to the model. It easily fits in the pockets. It also features a metal black plate, which makes it classy. It has an exposed rear plate to make it less slippery to handle. The addition of new fingerprint scanner on the front is a cherry on the cake. The 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display is surrounded by sizable sloping edges. Above the display, you can find a dual two-tone LED flash to the left, the earpiece in the middle, proximity light sensors next to it and the camera lens on the extreme right. The logo is squeezed in the middle giving it a clumsy look. Moto has retained the 16-pin connector at the back, to ensure that the last year's mods fit perfectly. These pins are made with 23-karat gold, which prevents corrosion and is scratch-resistant. The height, width, and overall shape of the phone remain the same as the first gen so that existing Mods fit.
On the display front, no advancements have been made to the predecessor. 5.5-inch Full HD panel looks fantastic, with excellent contrast, color temperature, and vibrant colors. AMOLED Technology illuminates per pixel, rather than using a backlight, which is better for power consumption, ensures richer blacks and an even brighter color palette. In layman's language AMOLED Panel makes black much deeper and colors brighter. It offers two screen modes: Standard and Vibrant. I will advise you to stick with vibrant as switching to the standard mode will make everything dull and stale. One of Motorola's best ever software features, Moto Display, is present is present in the Z series which makes use of that AMOLED panel. It lights up only the pixels it needs to display notifications when they come in, and lets you reply directly without unlocking the phone and saves all the hustle.
The only problem with the display is its low under sun visibility. It gets really difficult to see videos out under the sun. Although the AMOLED screen, lets you enjoy vibrant colors and deep blacks, as well as great viewing angles.
With Qualcomm's mid-sector octa-core Snapdragon 626 processor and 4GB of RAM, it has seen a pretty generous bump in performance. The phone performs great with mundane tasks such as web browsing, reading emails, and checking social media.
Out of the 4GB RAM, around 2.3GB is free on a fresh boot, and roughly 1.5GB is available at most times. So that phone can preserve apps in memory instead of quitting them to save RAM. This helps multi-tasking immensely, as it saves time for an app to load again.
If you are a gaming person, this phone can be a good option as games run smoothly while displaying the best of the graphics.
Having reduced the battery size compared to its predecessor, it still performs well enough and longevity remains very good. The 15 W chargers do not take long to charge the phone, though the phone does get a little warm while charging.
The mono speaker is present on the front of the device and it isn’t capable of getting very loud. But it works fine in comparison to other mid-range competitors.
The 12 megapixel Camera features a lens with a wide f/1.7 aperture, 1.4um pixels, and dual pixel phase detection autofocus. The aperture lets you take good photos in low light. Also, the double twist gesture makes it a second's job to launch the camera app. It possesses decent specifications like manual focus, white balance, shutter speed, ISO sensitivity and exposure compensation. Both laser and phase detection auto focus is present, giving it a super-fast auto focusing capability. Professional mode is much speedier than the manual mode though. Switching it to HDR auto mode would be an intelligent choice for the amateurs. For Selfie enthusiasts, Z2 Play sports a 5-megapixel front camera along with a dual-tone LED flash. The flash is quite helpful when taking selfies in low light. It also has a subtle beautification mode which literally adds life to your selfies by improving skin tone, and there hence making it perf to upload it without making any further edits.
However, it lacks optical stability, which can be felt when shooting in low light. So to ensure sharp results, extra steady hands are needed. Ne plus ultra is its picture detailing feature and the pictures look great on screen. But pictures taken outdoors tend to get over exposed.
Like many smartphones, Moto Z2 Play has only one speaker (on the front). For a smartphone, it has decent sound quality. However, it is not loud enough to give you a theatre feel though it prevents voice crackings and distortions. For a better experience, you need to purchase the JBL Moto Mod, which will increase the sound quality and timbre significantly but that too at a very exorbitant cost. Also, I would like to add that the Z2 Play doesn't support every audio format out there. The hardware decoder is pretty weak.
Coming over to video quality, the AMOLED display will give you a magnificent experience while watching videos or podcasts. The vivid and standard profiles let you maintain the display outlook.
Motorola's software is often renowned as lightweight Android UI. It offers all the favourable customisations to tweak your android experience. Gesture shortcuts are the most loved feature; you can create your own symbols for your favourite apps, contacts, and websites, and start them up just a blink. It is quite a pleasure to twist the phone to start the camera or use a "chopping" motion to toggle the flashlight. Coming over to Moto mods, the phone offers how-to tutorials on the first time you connect it, which is quite complicated to understand. But you become a pro, once you get all your concepts clear.
