Moto Z is an extremely thin Android phone, yet it’s still able to compete with its rivals plus the creative modular accessories adds boost to it.
The thinnest premium smartphone ever made, according to Lenovo. It’s 5.19 millimeters (0.2 inches) deep, barely thicker than the USB-C port at the bottom and remarkably light in hand.

In pushing these slim design boundaries, Motorola made the decision to get rid of the headphone jack. That means you’re stuck either use wireless headphones or plugging in a wired pair with the included, easy-to-lose adapter.

Moto Z come with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a Quad HD resolution, resulting in a pixel density of 535 ppi protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, Adreno 530 GPU and 4 GB of RAM provides the kind of performance any flagship should have.
The thinner Moto Z fits a 2,600 mAh battery life that for the most part, performs pretty decent on normal usage.
The Moto Z having a 13 MP rear camera sensor with f/1.8 apertures, plus the existence of OIS and laser autofocus captures pretty decent photos. On the front 5 MP with wide angles of view and f/2.2 aperture and led flash helps you in taking selfies at night also.
