You would like or need a new smartphone. You would like for it to manage all your day to day tasks and communications, from calls, to message, to work documents. You would like to be able to browse the internet, navigate from point A to B and be the device that stores all your music and media for use on the go. You would like to be able to take fantastic pictures. You would like to get exceptional sound. You would like to get exceptional battery life. You would like for it to be slim and stylish.
Mobile technology has evolved at quite a pace and you can now get a lot out of the modern smartphones, but cramming all of the above into something that is still portable and fashionable is a challenge and the laws of physics often apply meaning there is only a couple of ways forward.
The first is to exclude some bits, the second is to carry separate components or devices that achieve the things that have been left out.
You do not really want that do you?
LG introduced add on ‘friends’ or modules for the G5 and they work, but you have to remove the battery each time and they take a few moments to get setup.
Lenovo, the company behind Moto devices, have taken this concept to the next stage with Moto Mods for the Moto Z.
These add on modules or ‘mods’ attach to the Moto Z through the power of magnetism. These really strong magnets allow modes which includes JBL SoundBoost Speaker, Insta-Share Projector, and Power Pack, and covers, to attach to the Moto Z, in order to personalise and expand its capabilities.
We all desire the best and the Moto Z offers the technology and components available for smartphones today.
Powering the Z is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM that can handle anything from video recording to game play to document editing very efficiently.
So-called ‘lag’ will be a thing of the past and you will be hard pushed to notice any slow down in the performance of the Moto Z if you were using one.
Internal memory options include 32GB or 64GB and there is a microSD memory card slot that supports cards up to 2TB (although at the time of writing on 200GB cards are available).
A bright and vibrant 5.5” Quad HD AMOLED display brings multimedia to life and is responsive to the touch, as this is an all touchscreen device.
USB Type C
The Z drops the use of the 3.5mm headphone jack. You now need to connect headphones via the USB Type-C jack on the bottom of the phone.
Adapters can be used to use your favourite wired headphones, but the USB Type-C keeps the phone thin and up to date.
Faster charging and data transfer is possible as is the ability to connect cables any way around. No fiddling to find and match up the long edges.
High Resolution Cameras
On the rear of the Moto Z is a 13 megapixel camera with optical image stabalisation and laser autofocus. Remember those times where images were blurry and out of focus? This will not be the case so much with the Moto Z.
On the front is a 5 megapixel camera with a wide angle lens which helps when you want to capture more of the scene when taking a selfie or is great for that group selfie. Even the inclusion of a flash has been considered, so even low light selfies are covered.
Sophisticated Design & Super-Thin
The Moto Z measures just 5.2mm thick, yet manages to pack in some of the latest technology.
Aircraft grade aluminium and stainless steel frame the internal components and make for a very attractive body for the Moto Z that looks premium and feels just as premium in the hand.
There is also a water-repellent coating meaning rain, splashes or spills should not affect your usage of the handset.
Android Operating System
Google’s Android operating system is installed on the Moto Z.
Add email accounts including work and personal, add apps from the Play Store, customise the look and feel of the interface, control the permissions to access applications you have, and gain all the benefits of Google services right from the palm of your hand.
All this powerful technology can mean that the power is depleted quicker than you may like. With the fastest turbo charging ever seen in a Moto device, you can get up to 8 hours battery life from just a 15 minute charge.
As suggested, there are a series of modules or ‘mods’ that attach to the Moto Z via very strong magnets.
You now have the ability to transform your Moto Z into exactly what you need it to be. Like an instant party maker with the JBL SoundBoost, or, grab some popcorn and turn your phone into a 70-inch movie projector with the Moto Insta-Share Projector.
Need an extra boost? The Power Pack instantly adds up to 22 hours of life to your phone, just snap the module onto the back of the Moto Z.
You can also match your phone to your own personal style as often as you want with Style Shells. Choose from premium materials like real wood and leather, or pick out a patterned fabric. You can swap them whenever you like. Just pull them off and snap them back on.
The Moto Z is not just a smartphone, it is an ecosystem that takes the smartphone to the next level and makes it more powerful for you.
