Z2 Force

Recommended Posts

Picked up a Moto Z2 at bb for an awesome deal 20/month for 24months with free projector, btw this is a new line deal only ($300 off vs $200 off for upgrades)

 

So far it's a nice device, it isn't quite a replacement for my S8+.

 

But more importantly, so far it's B41 radio performance is definitely better than my S8.

 

I will continue to do more testing, taking a road trip from NYC to NC which will be a nice way of putting it through it's paces.

 

But so far..

 

Feels really light almost cheap compared to GS8

 

AMOLED is really over saturated (I kinda like it)

 

Fingerprint in the front is considerably better than the placement of GS8.

 

Nearly stock Android is ultra smooth, definitely miss that on my GS8.

 

Battery life seems promising even though not very large, but too early to tell.

 

Camera seems decent but slow compared to GS8.

 

Will update as the days go by with more info on radio performance..

I get 8 hours of battery life out of mine. The Galaxy S8 doesn't compare to this phone in the battery department or reception Department.

Sucks that Motorola skipped out on the 3.5mm jack or else I would've probably tried out the Z2 :td:

I find Bluetooth audio lacking which sucks because I listen to audio on the V20 with the quad DAC and it spoils you on the audio quality.

Look for devices that support apt X HD for the highest fidelity audio.. That's one of the reasons I'm picking up a V30.

I don't find the headphone jack a deal breaker anymore..it's not important to me.

Looks like with this promo the free projector is still included!  May go ahead and pull the trigger on this one!  My note 5 is still working good though!  Decisions, I was also waiting on the US variant of the Nokia 8 to see if it had Sprint bands included!

I'm leaning towards this phone because of the moto mods! I don't know why but this phone is calling my name despite the Note 8 and V30 coming up??....maybe it's the price point @50% off and the mods!

That's awesome:tu:

Unless the V30 blows my socks off (I currently have a V20) and depending on price I'll probably go with the Moto just to try something different from Samsung & LG

Dang, read on Reddit that someone over a few stores said they have replaced 10 phones out of 15 stores sure to them dying!  Any word on this other than from that one person?  I have a friend that has a Moto through Verizon and don't think it's the same exact phone but had the same mods and she's on her 4th one from it just stopping.  Said the screen would go black and could hear the text incoming but couldn't get it to turn on.

Hmmm.....Not good! Maybe someone else can chime in with their experience with the phone? That's a high failure rate....

    • The 123 subway station at Penn Station finally has B41. Its from the Transit wireless DAS but in the past it only had B25 LTE. Nice to see more B41 lighting up underground. I'm going to check the ACE side sometime this week as well. 
    • I'd just wonder how long it would take to get the networks to mesh.  How integrated would they need to be to have seemless handoffs, especially with voice.  Then how long will this integration take to get to that point. That's if they even integrate networks. Maybe they could say just point Sprint's equipment to TMobile's servers, push some updates and be integrated.  Not knowing a thing about how their networks work, this is the grey area and the area I'd be concerned with.  For data, I can see just open up bands to each others customers, retransmit requests/packets if hopping networks.  But not sure that will go well for VoLTE.  Plus there could be a lot of lost packets which wouldn't be good for a lot of services.  I'd imagine at first say as a Sprint customer I would be able to use the TMobile network, but when the phone scans it would scan for Sprint channels first then scan for TMobile if it can't find Sprint.  
    • Apparently the MiniMacros was an actual order placement.  But I don't know how long of a period a time this order is for.
    • Hmm makes sense kinda, I've noticed my battery has tanked a lot myself. Probably going to disable it and see if it makes a difference.
