In recent days, we’ve seen some biggest flagship launches from giants like Apple and Google. The iPhone 7 is already into the market and have received some good reviews tech critics. On the other side, Google’s Pixel is emerging as a beast but with an expensive price tag of INR 57,000 ($649 in the US). Despite their expensive labeling, both phones are considered as one of the best in the processor and camera field.
But from a laymen’s perspective, it really takes a lot to purchase any of these flagship devices. Also, one should think ‘are these mighty & costly worth the money’ and the answer could be either ‘yes’ or ‘no.’ That’s why Lenovo’s Moto Z Play is attracting loads of buzz on the blogosphere and social media.
So here we are giving you the top 5 reasons you should and must buy the Moto Z Play this fall.
This has to be the influential factor as it will going to generate leads for the Moto Z. An amazing job has been done by Lenovo regarding Play’s pricing as Moto Z and Z Play shares the same specs except for thinness and ram factor. There is a pricing difference of almost INR 15,000 between both the devices as Z is available for INR 39,999 and Z Play costs INR 24,999.
Having said that, the Moto Z Play features a 5.5 inch full HD Display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Processor; 2GB of 3GB RAM; a 16-megapixel rear camera with laser auto focus, zero shutter lag, quick capture, 4K Video recording, and dual LED flash. Alongside that, there is a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, water repellent nano-coating, 32GB of inbuilt storage with expandable storage support via microSD card (up to 2TB),4G LTE, and a 3510mAh battery.
2. Moto Mods
We have seen plenty of innovations on smartphones in last five years that includes a super convenient fingerprint scanner, slow motion video recording, and heart rate sensors. But it seems modular smartphones are the next big thing in the mobile industry, and we’ve already seen the teaser of this innovation in LG G5. And it seems Lenovo did the nice job with Moto Z Play on Moto Mods.
Starting with an external battery pack which you can attach via the magnetic pin system. Others are a projector, JBL sound boost speaker, the Hasselblad True Zoom, and style shells.
Besides Projector and True Zoom that costs INR 19,999, the moto mods are relatively inexpensive. The JBL Soundboost priced at Rs. 6,999, the Incipio offGRID Power Pack priced at Rs. 5,999, the Wood and Ballistic Nylong Motorola Style Shell priced at Rs. 1,099, while the Leather Style Shell is priced at Rs. 1,599.
But what we really liked about these Moto Mods are their design and syncing capabilities. You see, there is no pairing is require like what you see on Bluetooth devices, which makes using them very simple.
This is the biggest factor that will force you to buy the Moto Z Play. You see, the Moto Z Play is a bit thicker as compared to its big brother ‘Moto Z’ that actually allowed Lenovo to add a bigger battery of 3510 mAH. This helps Z Play to last for almost 45 hours in a mixed usage. Apart from that, there is a feature of turbo power that can supply 8 hours of power in 15 minutes of charging.
In a metro life, this feature could actually be beneficial for those commuters, students, and travelers who are not accessed to any sort of charging point in the whole day. In simple words, the smartphone is a battery beast.

I don’t know about other but I find Dual-SIM functionality very useful in a day-to-day. In a country like India where the network penetration of mobile carriers is still not up to the mark, it wouldn’t be a good idea to rely on a single carrier. But unfortunately, a majority of the flagship devices lacks this feature of Dual-SIM and that fact forces all the flagship device owners to avoid this dual ‘s’ aspect.
But here in Moto Z and Z Play, you can avail the benefits of the whole Dual-SIM functionality. As Reliance Jio has shown reliable and furious internet experience, one can enjoy the benefits of the new powerhouse and cost-effect mobile carrier (Jio) without switching or porting your old carrier’s sim with Moto Z Play.
Well, the pricing factor is solely responsible in making Moto Z Play, a complete power-pack and cost-effective smartphone in the mid-range market. After OnePlus 3, it is Lenovo’s Z Play that carries all the essential ingredients which can give a strong competition to any of those flagship devices out there except for the camera part (though the camera performance of Moto Z Play is good). The Moto Z Play, comes with only 32 GB Variant which is expandable up to 2 TB via microSD card support, is priced at INR 24,999 on Flipkart and Amazon.
