Mod In A Box: MrMobile Tries (To Love) The Moto Z3 Play

Any phone that takes you from sunrise to sunset without dying is a pretty solid phone in my book. So when I came home from a day of Google Maps navigation, hotel hunting and shooting endless photos (while Instagramming my every meal, natch) I expected my Moto Z3 Play to be mere moments from auto-shutdown. But while its Moto Mod was indeed just ticking over to zero as I walked in the door, the Z3 Play’s onboard battery was still sitting happily at 80%. I was minutes from bed, but I could have gone another whole twelve hours if I’d wanted to.

That’s the magic of the Moto Z3 Play: with Motorola’s new (and IMO, overdue) strategy of sticking a battery mod right in the box, it’s the new phone to beat for endurance. And it packs almost all of the features that have for years made Motorola my go-to example for “how to do Android the right way.” So why aren’t I more enthused about the Z3 Play? Well, as usual with Motorola Z-series phones, the answer comes down to: a little bit of overpricing; a little bit of underperforming (specifically in the camera); and a little company called OnePlus.

Check out MrMobile’s Moto Z3 Play Review in the video above, and be sure you’re subscribed to the YouTube channel; I’ll be coming to you straight from Motorola’s headquarters in Chicago with whatever the company’s announcing August 2! I don’t yet know what it is — but I’ve got a feeling you won’t want to miss it.

MrMobile’s two-month take on the Huawei Mate 10 Pro

The Mate 10 Professional used to be intended to make Huawei a family identify in the US, with an AT&T emblem on its again and a outstanding position on retailer cabinets. However because of the last-minute cave in ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/huawei-mate-10-pro-us-availability-price-specs) of that deal, the Mate 10 Professional is as an alternative caught in the similar no-carrier purgatory that relegated its predecessors to North American footnotes. The result’s a smartphone that turns out fated to retread the footsteps of the ones forerunners, on the other hand nice it may well be. The excellent news is that you can nonetheless be capable to purchase the telephone unlocked right here within the States when it hits cabinets in February. The unhealthy information (for Huawei) is that in case you do, you can almost certainly be one of the few.

I have been the usage of the Mate 10 Professional for two months and I have were given a sexy cast take care of at the highs and lows, so after you soak up the authentic Android Central take ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/huawei-mate-10-pro-review), sign up for me for the MrMobile evaluation! We will soar from Boston to Las Vegas (or even take a flight during the Grand Canyon in a helicopter!) earlier than we decide on a purchase/do not purchase for this prettiest (and saddest) of all Huawei telephones.
