Lenovo couldn’t exactly hit a home run with the second-generation Moto Z Force, designing the 5.5-incher within Moto Mod limitations, slapping a tiny battery under its hood, and insisting not to bring the headphone jack back.
But you can’t fault the Chinese OEM for not trying to generate consumer interest in its latest flagship device, regularly partnering with major carriers and authorized retailers to offer various deal sweeteners.
The Insta-Share Projector Mod gift is still on for purchases made before December 31 at sellers including Best Buy, which just so happens to also be providing solid discounts for a limited time.
Whether you’re in the market for a Sprint, AT&T or Verizon-specific Moto Z2 Force, you’re eligible for lower payments than usual on monthly installment plans. You can cough up $18.41 instead of $33 every 30 days for two years with Sprint service, which brings the grand total down from a typical $792 to $442 or so.
AT&T lets you save $350 as well off its $810 list price, meaning you only need to pay $15.33 a month for 30 months now, down from $27, for a total of $460. Finally, Verizon is considerably less generous, still charging $23.16 a month for two years, amounting to $555, which represents just $200 off Big Red’s “normal” rate.
Keep in mind that the projecting Moto Mod is technically worth $300 by itself, although it currently fetches $225 on Motorola’s US website as part of limited holiday deals. And the Moto Z2 Force is not a bad phone by any standard… for a low enough price, featuring a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage space, dual rear cameras, and a “shatterproof design.”
