    It's definitely better then on the back since now you can use it while your phone is laying on a table. Probably the best spot ergonomically speaking.

    I think it's going to be very convenient. It cannot be on the back of a Moto Z phone because of Moto Mods. Think about how you hold your phone. If you are right handed, your thumb is probably normally near where the new fingerprint reader is. Convenient. If you are left handed, your index finger is probably wrapped around the phone normally and near the new fingerprint reader. Convenient. I'm not crazy about them moving the power button to the left side of the phone, but I guess we will get used to it.

    I quit complaining about button locations and fingerprint scanners when I got my note 8. found the newer locations was actually convenient. the same goes with the side fingerprint scan, convenience could be related as to how you pick up the phone.

    It has the power button on the left side. Volume buttons are on the right side, like the current Z phones. And the fingerprint scanner is on the right. Then it has the same virtual buttons as the current Z series once it's unlocked. And yes, the Z3 Play supports face ID unlock.

    The fingerprint scanner is on the side? That sounds hard to use I like a real button like the Z2 force that I can use partially as mouse to replace the virtual buttons I hope they keep the z
    2 force method. I hate face I'd doesn't work very well

    It sounds perfectly easy to use. Think about it.....If you are right handed, your thumb is probably normally near where the new fingerprint reader is. Convenient. If you are left handed, your index finger is probably wrapped around the phone normally and near the new fingerprint reader. Convenient. Yes, it also can be setup to use as a navigation button just like the Z2. Have you looked at the Moto website and read any of the info yet? :)

    I said the same about the fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone. thought it would be a major inconvenient. but when I got the phone it turned out to be a major convenience. It will all depend on how you pick up the phone.

    I just watched the video and looked at the fingerprint reader on the side looks uncomfortable and I tried on my Z2 to click a volume up down with my right thumb very hard and it would be tough to use it as a navigation button . I do see they ha e the touch gestures like old blackbery z30 how ironic they are going backwards to what blackberry tried and lost with.
    I hope they don't do it on the z3 force

    The Z3 Force will be exactly the same, only with Shattershield

    Don't think I will.like the side button we'll see maybe I should stock on Z2 forces as spares in case the side button bombs
