This is the time for discussion of the battery. Moto z2 play has a 3000mAh battery and has a turbopower charging facility also. Because of the help of Turbo power charging, you can get up to 7 hours of power within 15 minutes or you can say 50% charging in 30 minutes only. What a wonderful thing it is !!

It has a Li-ion non-removable battery with the talk time up to 30 h.

Memory and Storage

It can support the microSD card up to 256GB. But in India, you will get an only 64GB phone as 32GB is not launching in India.

Since the internal memory and the RAM of the phone are fine, you can be able to access your phone with a good speed without lagging.

  • Moto Mods technology

Last year, Moto has introduced its Moto mods technology in their phones. Moto mod devices transform your Moto z into a super zoomed camera, a projector, a boombox etc.But this Mods are very expensive. For ex- The camera mod for the moto z2 comes at the price tag of the 19,999 so the total value of the phones come is 19,999+28,000=48,000. LOL I think you should go for the a DSLR instead.
