    Long time Motorola Guy. Have a Droid Turbo. Not 2 not anything just the Turbo. Need a phone (probably) is the z2 play going to keep my Moto Love alive?

    My last phone was a Turbo. I think you would like the Z2, also.

    Howdy .... Been lurking was out of the loop for a little while. Really been milking my Droid Turbo for lots of reasons.
    No desire to jump to iLand. Other offerings these days just don't do it for me like my allegiance to simplicity.
    Drive a Jeep. Phone has always been a Motorola all the way back to my first StarTac
    Not sure what is coming later this year for moto but they offered this up and I figured why not.

    We have several things in common. I drive only Jeeps, Army vets, PA, and enjoy Moto phones.

    Moto has previously announced that there would be 3 years of Moto Z phones, and all Moto Mods from all 3 years will be compatible. So we are expecting a Moto Z3 lineup sometime this Summer.

    But the current deals on the Z2 phones are pretty sweet. My wife and daughter each have a Z2 Play and they are awesome. Even with the smaller battery, that newer chip gets great battery life.

    Verizon (in an attempt to solve some issues) made the offer of the Z2 basically close to free after waived this and credited that. I was occasionally glancing at phone offerings these days. The only one that sort of had my interest was the Google but only for a brief moment.
    In reality I need my phone to do very few things, just like it when they do it well. Phone, reception, email, web searches, directions, battery life - that's about it.
    I don't want HUGE and I don't need lots of neat tricks or gaming etc. Probably why I've always leaned Motorola going back to the Startac.... it was just a cool little phone.
    So, it arrives tomorrow. We shall see.
    Then the typical things like case/no-case etc......
    As always, appreciate the input. As for the Force, that wasn't offered by Vz or perhaps I would have gone that way as well.

    Good deal. So they gave you a Z2 Play, I assume?

    That's their plan (-: .... The Droid Turbo is getting a little long in the tooth and periodically doing some weird stuff so I called them (a frustration as always) after multiple calls, chats, etc - some even resulting in me just saying "Ya know. Just Cancel my service after 31 years with a company this juice just ain't worth the squeeze"...
    They offered the Z2Play. So I said ok. Worst case, I send it back or after a year or so just buy something else. I really did like the form/fit/function of the Droid Turbo. Probably one of my all time favorites.

    The Turbo was awesome, I liked it a lot also. I think you'll like the Z2 Play.
