The Moto Z Play gets snap-on mods at a more affordable price
Motorola's got a new Mod phone, and this one's got a bigger battery plus a headphone jack.
The Moto Z Play is another addition to Motorola's new premium line of Z phones, but the Play is aimed at being a little more budget friendly.
It still has rear connectors that accepts any of the funky, magnetically snapable Moto Mod accessories made for the Moto Z phone series.
These mods can add batteries Speakers, projectors, and now even zoom camera lens attachments.
But the Z Play cost less than the existing Z and Z4's.
Using a lower res 1080p, ammo lead, 5.5 inch display, and a different Snapdragon processor along with 3 gigs of ram.
Instead of the 4 gigs in the other models.
It costs a little less too, and it's battery is the biggest of any z phone, at 3510 milliamps.
And even better, it has a headphone jack!
Look at that!
No dongle necessary.
Why did Motorola add the headphone jack it took away from the other moto z models?
While keeping USB-C, I have no idea.
But the Moto Z lets you have USB-C and a headphone jack too.
Celebrate these small victories.
The Z Play could be the start of a larger line of Moto [UNKNOWN] compatible phones for Motorola and Lenovo, or at least this boosts the lineup to three.
