Lenovo has gotten a Motorola phone to all the major carriers for the first time since its acquisition. It’s a wonderful achievement, but is the device itself worth celebrating? There’s no “middle ground,” just a cut between ‘Play’ and ‘Force’. What does the Moto Z2 Force mean to you?

We talk with Digital Trends mobile editor Julian Chokkattu in the second half of the show, but not before we dive into leaks and bootloops — don’t we always? — as well as the death of iPods, so make sure you’re charged and ready for the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch our Hangouts On Air live from 3:00pm Eastern on July 28th, or check out the high-quality audio version right here. You can shoot your listener emails to [email protected] for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air the following week!
