REVIEW: The latest Moto phone is awesome, but can’t get out of its own way

The Lenovo Moto Z.

The Moto Z is that smart pillow, just in phone form. It’s a device I’ve enjoyed using for the past two weeks. It’s gorgeous, powerful, and legitimately inventive. Motorola, along with its parent company Lenovo, is undoubtedly committed to its vision of a premium smartphone that’s both modular and strikingly thin. In a way, I admire that.

Then reality sets in, and I realize just how convoluted that vision is out of a reviewer’s hands, and into those of someone who just spent $620 to make it her main device for the next two years.

The Moto Z sells out to achieve its design goals. In doing so, it raises an array of annoyances that can make the phone feel like it’s fighting you to defend its ideas.  Also, the bezel’s too big, and Motorola’s fallen off a cliff when it comes to software updates.

Technically, I’ve used the Verizon-only Moto Z Droid during this period, but aside from some bloatware, that’s the same as the unlocked model Motorola plans to release later this summer. (There’s also a Moto Z Force, which is larger and pricier, with a stronger camera and a “shatterproof” display.) In any case, here’s what I’ve found.
