Motorola Moto Z2 Play Launched In India.......



MOTO Z2 Play has been launched in INDIA on 8th of JUNE in GOA. But many of the tech lovers and moto fans didn't get what they expected from MOTO Z2 Play which is the successor MOTO Z Play. It was more like MOTO G5 Plus and was looking like one of its copy with that magnetic pin behind it for MOTO MODS feature. It is a Premier Mid Range smartphone by MOTOROLA. The pricing in INDIA is 28,000 INR, which is sold by FLIPKART and offline stores as well.







It comes with 64GB INTERNAL STORAGE and 4GB RAM, which was not the case in foreign countries as it came there in two variants one with 3GB RAM,32 INTERNAL and 4GB RAM, 64GB INTERNAL. The smartphone looks sleek in design and a bit thin than the MOTO Z Play. It has METALLIC BODY which was not the case with MOTO Z Play as it had a GLASS BODY. It has a 12 MP shooter rear facing camera , with f/1.7 lens and with Dual tone LED Flash. And it has also having LASER AUTO FOCUSING SYSTEM . The front facing camera is a 5MP shooter with f/2.0 lens and with a DUAL TONE LED FLASH not with moonlight flash as of OPPO and VIVO smartphones.








Moto Actions: Can be used to enable gestures (e.g. Chop twice for Flashlight, Pick up to stop ringing) and 'One button nav' (more on it a bit later).

Moto Display: Blue light filter and fade in notifications can be turned on/off under this setting.



Moto Voice: Lets users control the smartphone via voice commands. Voice recognition can be configured here. Also, it has an option to have the Z2 Play announce calls and texts.



Call quality on the Moto Z2 Play was excellent during our test run. The smartphone latches on to 4G/VoLTE networks without any problems and there are hardly any dropped calls. Having said that, this depends on cellular network coverage in different areas.




The Super AMOLED display of the Moto Z2 Play is perfect for media consumption and renders 4K videos/Full HD movies with crisp detail. Audio output via the front-firing mono speaker is solid, too.









Moto Z2 Play comes with a front-mounted fingerprint sensor, which worked extremely well during our time with it. Supporting 360-degree fingerprint recognition, the sensor is both fast and accurate. But, what truly sets it apart is the aforementioned 'One button nav' functionality. When enabled (under Moto Actions sub-setting in the Moto app), it allows the fingerprint sensor to be used as a single replacement for all the three on-screen navigation keys, hiding the latter from the display. Swiping left on the sensor simulates the 'Back' action, while swiping right opens the 'Recent apps' carousel. Similarly, short pressing on the sensor locks/unlocks the phone and long pressing on it summons up Google Assistant.





Moto Z2 Play's rear camera can capture 4K resolution videos at 30fps and Full HD videos at 30/60fps. The videos look largely fine, nonetheless, the lack of optical image stabilization (OIS) is baffling.

The camera app on the Z2 Play is straightforward. Apart from the usual Photo and Video modes, it includes the ability to shoot panoramic photos and slow motion videos. There's even a full-blown manual mode that lets you adjust everything from ISO values to white balance per your needs.

Lastly, a word about battery life. Moto Z2 Play has a 3,000mAh cell, which is a downgrade from the 3,510mAh battery of its predecessor. But, despite the reduced capacity, the Z2 Play's battery managed to last us a full workday on a single charge. Our usage involved about an hour each of voice calls, web browsing, music streaming and gaming, all while keeping the phone connected to a 4G/Wi-Fi network. Among other things, the solid battery life can be attributed to the Snapdragon 626 chipset, which is as energy-efficient (if not more) as its predecessor.

There's support for fast-charging as well, and a fully-drained battery can be charged to about 50% of its capacity in around 45-50 minutes.




Moto Mods:

Even though the Moto Z2 Play can work perfectly as a standalone device, its companion Moto Mods are a core part of the overall modular ecosystem that the smartphone powers. Motorola launched a new range of Moto Mods alongside the Z2 Play, and here are our thoughts about them.










JBL SoundBoost 2:

The chunkiest of all the new Moto Mods, SoundBoost 2 is the sequel to the original SoundBoost that JBL launched last year with the Moto Z Play. JBL SoundBoost 2 comes with twin 27mm speakers that churn out stereo sound output. This little thing certainly left us impressed. Despite having a lower sound wattage (RMS) than other wireless speakers, the SoundBoost 2 emits sound that's loud enough to fill a small room. Overall, audio output is clear and well-balanced, with no distortion even at max volume levels.

When snapped onto the Moto Z2 Play, the speaker can be used to handle voice calls in hands-free mode, a feature we found to be incredibly handy. The built-in kickstand makes propping up the speaker (and hence, the Z2 Play) on any surface a cakewalk. JBL claims that the 1,000mAh battery of the SoundBoost 2 is good enough for up to 10 hours of continuous music playback, but over the course of our test run, we managed to get around 7-8 hours of usage on a single charge. That's still very good!

TurboPower pack

As its name suggests, the TurboPower pack is essentially a 3,490mAh battery to complement the Moto Z2 Play's 3,000mAh cell. Having a sleek profile, this Moto Mod is indispensable for anyone who wishes to have their smartphone last longer on a single charge. It has a USB Type-C port of its own and supports fast charging.


When snapped onto the Moto Z2 Play, the TurboPower pack can be used to boost the smartphone's battery with the touch of a button on its back. Next to the button, the mod has four LEDs to indicate the charge levels. The soft-rubberized finish of the TurboPower pack not only feels great, but also enhances the in-hand grip of the smartphone when snapped onto it.














Moto Style shell with Wireless charging:




Available in multiple designs/finishes (e.g. Ebony Burl, Wood), the newest Moto Style shells not only add to the already classy design of the Moto Z2 Play, but also grant it wireless charging capability. Once snapped on, the style shells can charge the Z2 Play's battery using any wireless charger (compatible with Qi or PMA charging standards)
