Moto Z2 Force Availability: Pre-Orders, Promos, and More

It will be officially up for sale from August 10; interested users can pre-order it right now.

"For years, Moto fans have been trapped with one choice-Verizon, which is like no choice at all", T-Mobile CEO John Legere said in a press release. But none of those features will help Motorola sell more phones as much as a less touted announcement about distribution of the Moto Z2. The phone will ship on or around August 10th. It's not waterproof, however, though it should be able to survive light spills, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat is on board.

Here's what it has to offer for potential buyers.

Likewise, the Moto Z2 Force is superior for overall performance.

The highlights of the phone include the Shattershied display, dual cameras, Moto Mod support, and of course, thinner form factor.

The phone has been subject to many leaks and rumors over past few months. The Moto Z2 Force is expected to be a Shatterproof smartphone.

Carmakers 'colluded on technology for years'
Speaking of Dieselgate , some investigators have claimed Daimler installed a software cheat device on its cars, kind of like VW. Owned by the Volkswagen Group, Audi , the luxury auto brand announced the voluntary upgrade of the diesel vehicles this Friday.

Perhaps the worst part of the new Moto Z2 Force is battery life.

But now that the novelty of the first generation has worn off, Motorola needs to prove that Mods are enough of a value-add over standard phone accessories. It also isn't water-resistant, unlike the latest offerings by Samsung, Apple and LG. Instead, the company has a water-repellant coating that might save it from a splash, but that's about it. Rather than requiring it to occupy the full back, Essential's system just plugs in a pair of pins near the top of the phone. One lens on the rear shoots regular colour shots while the other lens focuses on capturing monochrome shots. In 2017, there's even more to love about the next-gen Force phone. An idea we've seen before from Huawei. Essentially offering handsome portrait photography like the iPhone 7 Plus. The device will have a dual 12MP main camera setup - a dual rear camera with one sensor bearing 12-megapixel resolutions and the front selfie snapper sporting a more modest 5-megapixel resolution.

Now for the bad news, this phone is pretty expensive. Following in the footsteps of last year's model, its durability mainly comes by way of the inclusion of a ShatterShield display. For a limited time, when you buy one, you'll get a free Insta-Share Projector Moto Mod by mail. Motorola is also announcing a new 360-degree camera Moto Mod, and that one will set you back $300.

When it comes to media chops, the Moto Z2 Force is again the better handset.

Priced at $799, the Moto Z2 Force will be available in three color variants, including Black, White-Gold and Slate Gray. Both are made of aluminium, although the Z2 Force's build is tougher than the Play, as you'd expect given that name. Lenovo Moto Z2 Play only has Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 and a dust proof characteristic, making the Moto Z2 Force an upgraded version of it.
