Moto Z & LG G5 : Genesis of Modular Smartphones
Motorola entered the Lenovo Tech world 2016 to unleash the brand new Moto Z. Actually, Moto Z is just another super smartphone that replaces the Moto X and launched as the flagship moto device. So far we have seen a lot of smartphones being launched in this year and now Moto Z. So Will this Moto Z can compete with other devices. Let us compare it with the LG’s own modular phone LG G5.
The Moto Z gets fatter when the Moto Mods are attached, however. Motorola's new LG G5-style accessory system arrives in the form of magnetic 'backpack' attachments that connect to the 16 pogo pins on the back of the smartphone.
Moto Z offers 5.5-inch screen with 2560 x 1440-pixel resolution with a metal body design using aluminium and stainless steel which has a dimension of 153.3 x 75.3 x 5.19 mm which weighs around 136 grams. This has a super slim look.
Moto Z is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset with 4GB RAM. The internal memory of Moto Z 32/64 GB and is expandable up to 256GB.
The device comes with a fingerprint sensor on the front (nothing new since all the devices even in the low range have started to add this feature). A rear camera of 13-megapixel from the Moto maker, for plenty of design options. A front camera of 5-megapixel.
One notable thing is that it doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone socket, instead it uses USB Type-C instead with an adapter in the box.
It has Moto Z projector module that snaps the phone content of upto 70 inches and are officially called as Moto Insta-Share Projector.
It has a Non- removable battery capacity of 2600 mAh which is quite small comparably.
It is available in Black/Gray, Black/Rose Gold, Black/Gold, White colours.
