Good execution is perhaps the ultimate asset, and among modular handsets on the market today, we think the Lenovo-made Moto Z series is a shining example.
The entry point to the Z series and its promising ecosystem of add-ons is the $449 Moto Z Play. As the price suggests, it is a midrange Android phone backed by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The rest of the specs aren’t too shabby either: 16-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 lens; reversible Type-C connector; and 3,510mAh battery.
Of course, the real highlight here is the variety of accessories that snap on the back of the Play and other Z devices and consist of a choice between cases, a battery back, a JBL stereo speaker, a Hasselblad zoom camera, and a handheld projector, which is great for movie night at home.
The Moto Z Play is already being sold to customers in the US, the UK, and Latin America. The Indian market will get it sometime in October.
