This one was kind of tough. Motorola has two fantastic devices we could’ve chosen for this list, the Moto Z2 Play, and Moto X4. While our first indication was to go with the X4, we eventually decided on the Z2 Play for its Moto Mod support.
If you’ve never heard of Moto Mods, they’re modules you can stick on the back of supported Motorola phones. They add a number of different tools and functions like a projector, a battery pack with wireless charging, or an Alexa-enable speaker. Motorola has made an admirable effort to make modularity the new normal, and while other OEMs haven’t caught on quite yet, we love the added value Moto Mods bring to the Moto Z2 Play.
Even though the Z2 Play has a smaller battery than its predecessor, it still gets fantastic battery life. The 3,000 mAh battery provides all-day battery life and Motorola’s rapid charging will top you off when you need a bit more to get through the night.
The device comes with a great looking 1080p display, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal storage that can be expanded via microSD card. For a budget device, there sure are some excellent internal specs here!
