Motorola is back with another modular smartphone—the Moto Z2 Force
The Moto Z2 Force brings back the shatterproof display and some key changes that include a thinner body, dual cameras, new Moto Mod accessories and availability on all U.S. carriers in order to better compete with the likes of Samsung and LG.
The most significant change to the Z2 Force’s design is that it’s roughly one millimeter thinner than its predecessor.
The Z2 Force comes in only one storage option at 64 GB but a microSD slot is available with support of up to 2 TB in case you need more than what the phone is able to offer internally. 4×4 MIMO is also on board for faster gigabit LTE speeds across carriers.
Water and dust resistance has become a fairly common feature on flagship phones but that is one thing you will not find on the Z2 Force.
It does however carry a water-repellent nano coating that makes the phone resistant to the occasional splash without being designed to survive submersion.
