Quick Review of Motorola Moto Z Droid
Moto Z Droid has a fantastic display by quality. The costly AMOLED display with 1440p screen resolution is fantastic and it brought the pixel density to 535ppi. The Snapdragon 820 processor is a powerful CPU and standing top in the rank. It paired with the 4GB RAM and made the multitasking smoother. The cameras are extra-ordinary in producing images of high quality.
Coming to the disadvantages, there is no 3.5mm Audio jack. There is a 3.5mm to USB type C headphone adapter cable comes with the pack. Even though it allows us to use the 3.5MM audio jack, but it is unable to charge the battery simultaneously with the headphones connected. Also, the charger and cable are one piece and so there is no USB cable coming with this smartphone.
The battery is not satisfying for such high end smartphone. To promote the battery module, they provided a low capacity battery. It is unjust for those who only use the phone. The Speaker module is good to use. The projector module is too pricy as well as not reasonable in features it provides for such high price. All of the modules also has their own battery.

Opinion to Buyers – Motorola Moto Z Droid
Moto Z Droid is clearly for the additional modules. It is not good to buy Moto Z Droid only to use it as a regular smartphone without the modules. When it comes to module, it is too much of cost for the features. But, still it gives new experience.
