Motorola Moto Z3 review: Is the promise of 5G enough?

Related image
The beginning of the original Motorola Moto Z in 2016, with its attachment Moto mode, was exciting. It was new and refreshing, and attachable parts to add more functionality to your smartphone was unheard of in the smartphone industry. Now we are on the third generation of Z line with Moto Z3, but Motorola has lost its speed. In addition to future promises of 5G speed, Moto Z3 makes it very rarely to create an attractive product.

So Moto Z3 is worth buying, and if so - who are the target audience? In this Moto Z3 review, we want to give the same answer.

The design of the Moto Z3 is similar to the recently released Moto Z3 Play. There was obvious difference in design between play and non-play versions of Z line, but this is no longer the case. In addition to the blue color of Verizon stamp and Z3 play behind Moto Z3, you will not be able to tell the difference. Jade 3 has the same glass sandwich design in Z3, which does not have the same dimension and no headphone jack.

This is not a bad thing. The design is sleek, easy to catch, and extremely thin. I am a fan of the fingerprint sensor mounted side - if you use your smartphone in your right hand and are very fast to unlock it is in an ideal position for your thumb. For left-handed users, this will not be easy to use and is not at the best position to register multiple fingerprints.

Moto Z3's 6-inch 18: 9 AMOLED screen is also similar to Z3 Play, which is not a bad thing again. It is surrounded by thin bezels, vibrant colors, and the FHD + resolution keeps everything looking sharp. The screen is a comfortable shape for productivity and is great for more cozy activities like watching gaming and netflix. It is bright enough to be visible directly in the sunlight, and Motorola's software includes color mode to adjust the temperature and saturation of the screen.

The specs of the Moto Z3 are an important upgrade on Z3 Play, although in the last 2018 flagship we have seen that the ship with last year's flagship Snapdragon 835 processor instead of 845 has a ship. It does not ruin the experience through any means. 835 is still a very fast processor and 4 GB RAM is too much.

Battery life at Z3 was surprisingly impressive. I did not expect more than 3,000 mAh battery, but it certainly lives up to Motorola's claims of battery life throughout the day. I was able to get on screen more than five hours continuously. I usually finish the day by leaving 20 percent of the battery in the tank. 
 My usage varies from day to day, but for me a normal day involves some light gaming, watching YouTube, reading emails, and the typical social media Standby time was excellent, anywhere between 16 and 20 hours from the charger with Z3.

Moto Z3 pricing & final thoughts:

Compared to the other 2018 flagship, the Moto Z3 is relatively inexpensive. This is $ 480 from Verizon altogether - More mid-range is oddly cheaper than Z3 Play - but cheap price means that you do not get botto Moto Mod in the box. If you are on Verizon, then Moto Z3 is a great deal for the price. This is not a good smartphone with no big mistake, it's not just exciting.
