Moto Z2 Play: A New Smartphone With Clever Software And An All-Day Battery Life


Lenovo recently launched its Moto Z2 Play in the US last week. Lenovo also announced that the India pre-orders for the smartphone will be opened from Thursday, June 8. The Motorola Moto Z2 Play is the most interesting midrange phone you can buy. The phone comes with magnetic Moto Mods and a ton of software features and shortcuts.

Moto Mods.

Moto Mods transform your phone, so you can do more than was ever possible before. Add a powerful stereo speaker. Shoot with a 10x optical zoom camera. Instantly boost battery life. Project a movie to watch with friends. Moto Mods make it a snap to do more whenever inspiration strikes.

Battery & Turbo Power.

The best thing about the Z2 Play is its battery life. Get up to 30 hours of battery life on a single charge thanks to a 3000 mAh battery. When it’s time to power up, don’t slow down. The TurboPower charger gives you up to 8 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes. You can easily get through a day and a half or even two days with some heavy use.

Voice Command.

The most clever feature and the most promising one is actually a voice command that opens apps. You simply have to say “show me.” That’s right. Just say “Show me YouTube,” “Show me Maps” etc. You just slide the shade that pops up and you are in. The information will float on screen before fading off, in the case of the calendar and weather. You can configure “show me” to work on the lock screen when it recognizes your voice.

Advanced Camera.

Embrace your inner shutterbug with the first camera combining laser autofocus and dual autofocus pixels. It captures 25% more light using a large ƒ/1.7 aperture and 10 times the number of autofocus pixels as its predecessor. Take better selfies with the 5 MP wide angle camera featuring the first front-facing dual CCT flash.

One Button Navigation.

Your fingerprint sensor will also let you easily navigate your phone. Swipe left to go back, right to access recent apps, tap to go home and long press to lock your phone. With fewer buttons on the screen, you get back some visual real estate.

Best Midrange Phone.

The Moto Z2 Play has a beautiful screen and all-day battery life. There’s expandable storage, lots of software tricks and even a headphone jack. It’s best software feature doesn’t always work. The phone feels a bit uncomfortable without a magnetic back cover. Last year’s Z Play had much longer battery life. The Mozo Z2 has got a strong battery life. It comes with a clever software and magnetic Mod add-ons. This makes the Motorola Z2 Play a compelling midrange choice.
