Most importantly, the phone comes with a 2600 mAh battery that provides users with up to 24 hours worth of mixed usage battery life.  Lastly, the Moto Z comes with a water-repellent nano-coating that can keep your phone protected from rain, splashes or spills. Just don’t go deep sea diving with it. Available with a massive 64 GB of internal storage, the Moto Z also supports a further 2TB via a micrsoSD card.

Moto Z Play

The Moto Z Play aims to corner the battery hungry market, featuring a lightweight, thin design with an aluminum fame and glass back. The Moto Z play operates on a 2.0 GHz octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM. A rear 16MP laser autofocus camera is included in the device, with a wide-angle, front-facing camera with LED camera present on the front. The main selling point of the Moto Z Play though is its long lasting battery. Its 3510 mAh battery battery has a lifespan of 45 hours of mixed usage.
