    Well, as usual, Evan Blass was right on the money. Motorola announced the Z2 Force today and everything he leaked is true. No longer a Droid, this model is not going to be a Verizon exclusive, and will be available on all US carriers. All the spec rumors were true: 5.5 inch AMOLED shatterproof screen that is more scratch resistant then the Z Force. The Qualcomm 835 powers it, with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and an SD Card slot. The dual 12 MP cameras are on the back.
    And, yes, the 2730 mAh battery will be providing the juice. This is bigger then last year's Z, but quite a bit smaller then the Z Force. As most of you know, the Snapdragon 835 is much better on battery life. They are still calling it "the all-day battery". I hope Moto knows what they are doing here. I will let you know when mine arrives on (or around) August 10th. Pre-orders start: /edit/ today.
    Also announced was the new 360 degree HD Camera Moto Mod for $299.

    Looks like pre-orders are actually up now for VZW and T-Mobile and they are offering the Projector free for certain plans. Don't think I qualify on the business plan but I did get an extra $100, so $149.

    I saw Verizon has a nice deal for $15 a month for 2yrs ...other carriers crazy though ..$799 for T-MOBILE is not a good price IMO ..

    there are so many different deals out there, it is near impossible to keep track of them and know all the fine prints.

    Nah! I'm sure they didn't bother including a back since they know everyone is going to have by a Battery Moto-Mod anyway :p

    Man, this is a nice looking device, but ever since these narrow bezels came around I have no interest in anything else. But I do love Motorola devices.

    Shattershield being easy to scratch is not new. The manufacturer (Moto) recommends always using a screen protector for this very reason. To me it's simple....you want scratch resistant / proof screen, get a Gorilla Glass screen. You want shatter proof (but not scratch resistant) screen, get a Shattershield. Life is all about choices and it's good that we have both versions of screens available for those that prefer either type.

    The Moto Z2 Force is definitely on my "want list" for 2017, easily scratched screen or not....smaller battery and all.

    I've always favored screen protectors if for no other reason than to reduce glare and fingerprints.

    Otherwise, I'm not sure why this should be a choice - Shattershield plus screen protector seems like a nearly perfect solution.
