    How does the new Moto Z4 compare to my three-year-old Moto Z Force?
    I am starting to have some issues with the MZF. Mainly after talking on it for several hours in my job, everyone says "you're breaking up" when I have 5 bars of 4G.
    Should I jump to the Moto Z4 and if I do what will I gain?

    Here's a link to the Z4 full specs. There won't be a "Force" edition, but I'd have to say that there's a huge improvement since the original Z Force.

    The main difference will be the larger battery, newer processor inside, and much larger screen size. They are the same physical size but you will gain almost an inch in screen viewing area. The processor may have a smaller number than the original Z Force but it's still three years newer with much newer technology inside.

    Good deal. I was at going to buy....now at 90 / 10. Rumor has it that they removed Talk To Me - Driving Mode, which I use every day. But I can probably live without it. It's just a shame to remove such a nice feature that has been around for many years. The Unlocked version is available now and the Verizon specific version is supposed to be available on Thursday, the 13th.

    Other than not being able to use my mods, the driving mode was definitely missed. A great feature, for sure. But, I'm getting along with my Pixel 2XL very nicely. Good luck with the new Z4.

    The contract on my Moto Z Force is up on the 12th of June (how convenient). As in my original post, it is not standing up to my one-week a month phone marketing efforts. I will see what Verizon offers and go for it.
    I have been lurking on another forum and see the Motorola direct unlocked Z4 offer is having delivery issues.
    Come on Verizon!

    What kind of delivery issues? Because I ordered my z4 direct from Motorola website on 3rd and it was delivered on 8th.
