The Moto Z3 Play throws in an extra battery for $499
Interested in playing the middle ground in phone buying?
There are at increasing number of $500 range options.
And the Moto Z3 Play is one of them.
This 3rd Gen spin on Motorolla's family of phones with snap on modular accessories is less about the mods, more about the value.
It is a larger 18x9 six inch full HD plus screen and no more bottom finger print censors Instead, it's moved off to the side.
A new bottom of the screen gesture language is somewhat the iPhone 10 and Android P, but different.
When Android P arrives, Motorola might offer a choice of gestures to use on this phone.
The [UNKNOWN] Play should have better microphones for voices Since it's from far away if you care about that.
And the need of camera app now has dual lens on board plus a new weird feature called cinemagraph that lets you take GIF-like photo animations into a mix of still and [UNKNOWN].
The dual rear 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel cameras and front 8-megapixel one Can all do depth of focus portrait effects.
The Z3 Play doesn't have a better battery than last year's Z2 Play, though.
It's still 3,000 milliamps.
But it does come with a 2,000 milliamp battery pack Moto mod in a bundle for $4.99 when it's sold on [UNKNOWN] Moto snap on mods have some funky options like a Polaroid mini printer, and a new Amazon Alexa connected speaker.
But most of the options are still just batteries and speakers.
If you consider the mods a totally non-required, fringe benefit however, the rest of the Z3 Play could still be worth considering.
