  • I think that the 2600mah battery on the Z is a mistake. Particularly when the 3000 in the Moto X Pure struggles to get through a full day.
  • basically that phone will be useless without a battery module.
  • No friendly for T-Mobile ? Posted via the Android Central App
  • This manufacturer just killed this device. Giving Verizon exclusivity will alone kill it. By the time this phone makes it to other Carriers the next new phone will be out. People forget fast. The new iPhone is around the corner and many more. Dumb, Dumb, Dumb.
  • That was my thought as a tmobile customer. Cool... but by the time i can get it through tmo, there will be MANY better phones to choose from. Combine that with Moto's horrible rep and update practices and you have a recipe for disaster!
  • You nailed it out squarely my friend. I can't understand why in 2016 a manufacturer is still make exclusive devices. As you correctly mentioned, other devices will be around and those that were interested in this phone would have moved on. Dumb and bad for business.
  • Why would you describe this device as "exciting"? Posted via my Moto X Pure Edition using the Android Central App
