Wondering whether or not the modular Moto Z is more convenient and versatile than that other, conceptually different modular smartphone out and about? There’s a video comparison to help you find the answer.
What if you’re hesitating between this and the Galaxy S7? Not to worry, as we have a clip for that too. And one to explain and inspect three productivity-enhancing accessories. Plus, something for hardcore shutterbugs. Last but not least, written coverage of Verizon pricing and availability, as well as sweet early Best Buy deals.
Still, Lenovo left the matter of software support up in the air by failing to clarify its willingness to provide frequent security updates to the Moto Z and Z Force. That was unacceptable given the two phones’ “premium” characteristics and retail costs, and the manufacturers now add to the confusion with a terse, ambiguous official statement.
According to a Motorola spokesperson, the Moto Z and Moto Z Force “will be supported with patches from Android Security Bulletins”, and “will receive an update shortly after launch with additional patches.”
Seemingly great news, especially on the latter point, considering review units only included May security optimizations. Then again, a key word missing from the declaration is “monthly.” Or even “regularly.” Innocent omission? We’ll see.
