If slim is your thing, look no further than the Moto Z2 Force, which, at 0.26 inches, is one of the skinniest phones on the market.
But the Moto Z2 Force is more than a glorified bookmark. While reviews of this phone are mixed, it gets high marks for its crystal clear display and powerful processor.
Fans of this phone point to the ability to modify it by snapping on JBL speakers, a projector, a Hasselblad camera, or a battery pack. These so-called “Moto Mods” have a cult following, and we’re betting the Z2 Force will convert some users of its predecessor, the Moto Z Force.
The Moto Z2 Force also features one of the fastest processors on the market, fast enough that this phone will likely be certified as compatible with Google’s Daydream VR system. And it has a shatterproof screen. The folks at CNET dropped it 28 times in a row to see if they could crack it. They couldn’t.

The Moto Z2 Force is also compatible with the fastest charging standards, Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and USB Power Delivery. Those are important features because this phone’s 2,730 mAh battery is 22 percent smaller than last year’s model.
Because this device is compatible with the two fastest charging standards, users have options when it comes to finding spare power. Check out the wallport rq1300 for the home or office, or the dashport rq1300 for the car. Both are Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 compatible and come bundled with A to C cables.
Our wallport pd1300 also gets the job done. It takes advantage of the full promise of USB Type C charging, and is capable of providing 45 watts of power. The wallport pd1300 also eliminates the need to carry separate chargers for a laptop, tablet, and phone, because it takes care of all three.
Lastly, our USB-C chargesync alloy cables can provide up to 3 amps of power and are Qualcomm Quick Charge compatible. They’re also tough. Business Insider called the chargesync alloy the best durable cable around.
The Moto Z2 Force is a slim phone that continues Motorola’s attempts to blaze an independent path in the smartphone space. It’s got some fun mods, and though the battery is small, it charges quickly to keep you on the go. Now go out and have fun.
