Moto Z2 Force: What is it with Moto and small batteries?

Posted by

What is it with Moto smartphones and small batteries? The Moto Z2 Force is equipped with cutting edge features and a measly 2730 mAh battery to power all that and the 5.5-inch display. Its predecessor had a fairly comfortable 3,500 mAh power house.

Besides the disappointing battery capacity, the Z2 Force is cutting edge. It supports gestures on the front fingerprint scanner, so you can carry out some activities without having to stretch your finger across the screen. It supports Moto Mods, including the new the 360 Camera Moto Mod. And it has a ShatterShield display, which Moto says will prevent screen fractures.

Oh; there is one more disappointment: there is no 3.5mm audio jack. Still, the Moto Z2 Force is quite a device. But what will battery performance be like?

  1. The battery is the only issue on this phone, the rest of the features are great. Moto just need to improve on the battery capacity side.

  2. Mister Mo, would you recommend I buy this phone or not. Be truthful please. I am scared of all Moto products.

  3. The reason for the email battery is a simple marketing strategy. Buy the new battery mod. You don’t want them to sell market ni? Lol!
