The Z2 Force has two rear cameras, and new camera tricks like depth-of-field effects.

They're both 12-megapixel cameras. One's color, one's monochrome.

The Z2 Force runs Android 7.1.1, and has a pretty clean interface.

It's really thin. USB-C onboard, but no headphone jack (an adapter is included).

6.1mm is super thin. One downside to that: The battery, at 2,730mAh, isn't as big as in last year's Force.

Giving the Moto Z2 Force a test drop: Motorola says it will survive drops of 4-5 feet. It did, but the case started to get scuffed.

Do you need a 360 camera, though? And if you do, do you need one this expensive?

Full buttons and analog sticks make it feel like a little game handheld.

It makes the phone much longer, but at least it's comfy to hold.

There are trigger buttons, which feel a little stiff.
