Without really being stalwart like Apple or Samsung how can a smartphone really stand out? Well, except offering something new, innovative and design-wise perfect there is hardly any way to stand apart competitively. For Motorola the challenge seems still quite welcome as the brand is repeatedly coming with great devices equally powerful, feature rich and nice looking.
Earlier we had Moto Z and Moto Z Force complete with astounding specs and features. This time, the company went few steps ahead and offered Moto Z Droid which is not only one of the advanced smartphones but is also the slimmest smartphone till date.
A Design that makes it World’s Thinnest Smartphone
Moto Z Droid is unimaginably thin and ultra-light. The super-slim design packed with powerful specs and functionalities will still make it a lightweight device to carry it in the pocket. The device is built from aircraft-grade aluminum, stainless steel, and comes with a water-repellent coating protecting it against splashes of water, spilling of any liquid, and rainwater.
Awesome Display Completes with a Button for a Fingerprint Scanner
The Moto Z offers a stunning bright AMOLED display. The vivid colors and superb viewing angles make it an unmatched display for any visual. It comes with a Moto Active Display offering a detailed display of time and various notification icons including missed calls, messages, events, etc. From the front side, the device looks beautiful with a 5.5″ display and black bezel on all sides. The square button at the bottom center is actually not home button as normally gives an impression. It is basically a fingerprint scanner by touching which you can wake up the device and turn off the display.
The specs are powerful and ahead of many other devices on offer in the market. Let us have a quick look at the standout specs of Motorola Z Droid.
- Motorola offers a Snapdragon 820 processor which is the most advanced processor used in the latest range of phones.
- It packs 4GB RAM, 32GB and 64GB storage variations and microSD support extendable up to 2TB.
- It comes with 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display.
- It is powered by a 2600mAh battery that can go on unperturbed for a whole day. It has Turbocharging feature.
- There is 13MP rear camera with OIS and laser autofocus and 5MP front camera and a USB port.
Moto Mods are basically a customizable attachment that can enhance certain features of the phone. You can just choose a Moto Mod and attach it on the backside to get your desired functionality. With this modular hardware that has nothing to do with the device parts Motorola literally created an unmatched and unique value.
For attaching Moto Mods Motorola has introduced a system involving both pins and magnets allowing the device to stay in place. Just for snapping a Mod to the Moto Z all you need to do is to line up the pins around the camera and attach it in the precise place. The Mod stays attached to the device until you toss it from the bottom by using a fingernail. With Mods holding the phone in a perfect angle it becomes easier for you to watch any video as well. This is a particular area the company can continue to add value and make these Mods more valuable for an enhanced user experience.
Great Audio Quality with a Difference
Moto Z is unarguably the first smartphone designed sans the headphone jack. This little difference apart audio quality of the device is simply stunning and at least at par with latest range of smartphones.
