The Moto Z2 Force Edition affected by the "jelly effect" issue, what gives?

It’s been less than a month since the Moto Z2 Force Edition made its debut in the United States, so many customers have already been able to purchase one. If you are one of those people, then you might not have known that the Moto Z2 Force is affected by the same “jelly effect” issue as the OnePlus 5.

Neither Lenovo nor OnePlus offered an official explanation as to why their phones display the same erratic behavior when scrolling. Many believe that the “jelly effect” is caused by the fact that the display on these phones has been mounted upside down.

Moto Z2 Force Edition is up on the torture table and that shatter-proof display sure scratches easily

This year, Moto made things simpler with its flagships — instead of launching heirs to both the elegant Moto Z and the durable Moto Z Force, it just went with a Moto Z2 Force Edition, which takes cues from both worlds. It’s slim and lacks a headphone jack, yet sports the shatter-proof display.

YouTuber JerryRigEverything is well-known for running a pre-planner, elaborate torture test on every hot device that comes out and, sure enough, the Moto Z2 Force Edition was destined for his chopping block. It got tested for scratch durability, bend durability, and resistance to flame (the last one …

Motorola cuts the price of its unlocked Moto Z2 Force by $79 (UPDATE)

The new Motorola flagship, the Moto Z2 Force, is the sequel to last year’s Moto Z Force. And the Lenovo owned Motorola made some rather controversial decisions when it came to this year’s model. Among the most discussed was the sharp 22% drop in battery capacity from the 3500mAh cell used on the Moto Z Force Droid to the 2730mAh cell used on the sequel. Motorola claims that the smaller battery on the Moto Z2 Force still offers all-day power, some of which could be due to the energy sipping 10nm process used on the Snapdragon 835 chipset found inside the Moto Z2 Force.

Another issue is that …

Motorola cuts the price of its unlocked Moto Z2 Force by $79

The new Motorola flagship, the Moto Z2 Force, is the sequel to last year’s Moto Z Force. And the Lenovo owned company made some rather controversial decisions when it came to this year’s model. Among the most discussed is the drop in battery capacity from 3500mAh to the 2730mAh on the new handset. Motorola says it still offers all-day power, some of which could be due to the energy sipping 10nm process used on the Snapdragon 835 chipset used on the Moto Z2 Force.

Deal: Save up to $300 on Sprint's Moto Z2 Force

As of this week, Sprint is accepting pre-orders for the brand new Motorola Moto Z2 Force, and it’s even got a pretty sweet offer for folks willing to lease the phone: 2 handsets can be leased for the price of 1. However, if you want to actually purchase the Z2 Force (and own it, instead of just leasing it), Best Buy has a deal for you.

Normally, the Moto Z2 Force costs $792 at Sprint, but Best Buy lets you pay just $492 for it (that’s $300 off). This offer requires “eligible” new line activation and a Sprint 24-month installment billing plan. If you only need to …

Results: do you like the Moto Z2 Force Edition?

A couple of days ago, Motorola revealed its 2017 flagship — the Moto Z2 Force Edition. Yeah, it’s just one this time around, instead of being a couple like last year’s Moto Z and Moto Z Force.

What does it have? A Snapdragon 835, 4 GB of RAM, a dual camera… then a 2,730 mAh battery and no headphone jack. To the dismay of a lot of fans, Motorola went with the “thin phone” concept and sacrificed battery capacity and headphone jack. But surely that’s curable via some of the many Moto Mods, which come with a small battery themselves, right?

International Moto Z2 Force with 6GB RAM reportedly carries a 3.5mm headphone jack

Yesterday, Motorola and the four major U.S. carriers unveiled the Motorola Moto Z2 Force. While there are some new features like the dual camera setup in back, the pill shaped fingerprint sensor (as opposed to the square shaped button on last year’s model), the Snapdragon 835 chipset inside, and the 64GB of native storage, one of the things that remains the same is the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack.

For those who love the Moto Z2 Force but feel that the lack of the 3.5mm jack is a deal breaker, there is an interesting (but aggravating) rumor that was posted yesterday on Twitter. Citing …

Moto Z2 Force Edition: yay or nay?

So, yesterday, Motorola revealed its 2017 flagship — the Moto Z2 Force Edition. No more separation between a “normal” Moto Z and an “indestructible” Moto Z Force, it’s now just this one phone. Well, at least for now.

What does it have? A Snapdragon 835, 4 GB of RAM, a dual camera… then a 2,730 mAh battery and no headphone jack.
