The world’s second modular smartphone, or a pretty conventional device to start with (that can merely hook up to a range of promising, albeit expensive modular accessories)? That, our friends, is the million-dollar question… the following Moto Mods review video doesn’t aim to definitively answer.

Time will tell exactly what the Moto Z is, and, if it can pave the way for a bold new direction in an industry badly needing true innovation.

As Motorola eloquently puts it on the official US Moto Mod website, “really strong magnets” are the secret and main advantage of these first-party productivity-enhancing solutions over other battery cases or audio attachments, blending into the base look of the Moto Z as if they were part of the same ensemble. But enough talk, and let’s check out the puppies in action, in our Moto Mods Review video below:
