You can now pick up the Moto Z Droid Edition and the Moto Z Force Droid Edition from Verizon, with both phones exclusive to the carrier until this fall. The Moto Z Droid Edition is available for $26 monthly, or $624 outright, and the Moto Z Force Droid Edition will set you back $30 monthly, or $720 outright.
The main difference between the two phones is that the Moto Z Force Droid Edition has a ShatterShield display, giving an added layer of protection from drops and tumbles. The feature works exactly as advertised. The Moto Z Force also has a larger 3500mAh battery against the 2600mAh battery on the Moto Z, and a higher-resolution 21MP camera versus the 13MP on the Moto Z. There's no 3.5mm jack, so you'll have to rely on a USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter to connect your 3.5mm audio gear.
