    Friend got a Z4. Set it up for her. It's a nice phone. Can't beat it for the price, that's for sure

    That's rumored to be the new Moto G8 mid-range phone. Not a flagship.

    Would you believe she prefers the side mounted one in the Z3. Only because she could find it without looking and it was crazy fast.

    My z2 force is peeling from the top left corner. I wonder if that's the shatter shield?

    Is there any way to get a replacement anymore?

    Yep, that's the Shattershield Lens (outer layer) peeling, which happens over time from what I have read on the Moto Forum. According to folks on the Moto Forum, Motorola never made the Z2 Force replacement Lens available for sale like they did with the Turbo 2 and Z Force. It was only available as a repair option where you send your phone to them and pay for their techs to replace the Lens (or whole screen).

    I put electrical tape off the corner to stop the peeling. If it peeled off would it be a glass screen underneath that would it still work?

    It's four layers of plastic, aluminum and maybe some glass. Will it work without the Lens? Maybe, maybe not.
