    Dude. Great phone. Better than my z2. You have to make the decision. We can't make it for you.
    The case vs moto mod thing is the same as it was with your z2. You should have already figured that out. No difference. Personal choice. I don't use my mods that much, so a case works for me. I take it off for my mods. NO PROBLEM
    if you're this hesitant about a z4, then look another brand.
    As for the processor..... The whole z4 package is quicker than my z2 (seems to me)
    Either way... Best of luck!

    Sorry.....I don't really understand this post and if this is one question or multiple questions? As bruben mentioned, you have to make a decision. We can't do it for you. And as bruben mentioned, since you already found all the negative reviews and already have an unfavorable opinion on the Z4 you should not buy one. There are plenty of other phones for sale right now. If you have any doubt about this phone, any doubt at all....don't buy it. Keep your Z2 Force until it's almost dead. And then find a phone that you want with no doubt and no second guessing, no matter what make & model it is.

    People are never happy. Every phone with an indisplay FP reader gets complaints. If you believe everything on Reddit the 6t FP reader sucks too. It doesn't.

    The original Turbo was Gorilla Glass. Shattershield started with the Turbo 2, that was the first shatter proof screen.

    Just stopped by a Verizon store and tried a z4 . The one touch virtual button is nice similar to the way original physical button works is that unique to Moto or is that an Android 9 thing?

    I wasn't able to test the fingerprint screen scanner as phone was in demo mode. The reviews right in the demo page were horrible for the scanner and that the screen breaks easy and that phone quality is bad.

    Testing the working one in the store seems like a good phone otherwise. Also could not test the Moto mods to see what the bad fit everyone talks about


    How many people on this forum have the Z4 now and would reply with their expierience?

    Which is the better phone z4 or g#? Or the Samsung's

    Still hanging onto the z2 till it breaks or a good phone comes out and I would get another z2 if they still have new ones. Do they sell them new to have a spare?

    Moto doesn't sell them new. But you might find a new-in-box on Swappa. The one button nav is an Android feature, but Mot's implementation is a little different than stock Google. Some say it's better. I have had no issues with my fingerprint scanner....none. Works flawlessly every time for me. But as stated many times....since you seem so focused on the negative reviews you should stay away from a Z4. If you buy one with a negative mindset right from the start....it won't be a good experience. Get a Pixel.

    And as far as the negative reviews about the screen breaking easily....what do people expect? It's glass....of course it breaks if you drop it. Every phone on the planet with a glass screen will break if dropped. There is not one phone with a glass screen that is shatter proof. What the hell do people think happens when you drop a glass phone? That's what cases are for.

    But the back is metal only the screen is glass how would a case help you.
    I would get az4 when I have to as I committed to Moto mods for the batteries I have four battery mods. I wouldn't get a case with a Moto most phone as you would have to take the case off all the time
