[Video] Unboxing the Moto Z2 Force

Verizon customers have long been familiar with Motorola smartphones, whether they are Motorola branded or part of the carrier’s DROID line. Outside of that, there were also customers willing to purchase unlocked phones directly from Motorola that might find their way to other carriers. This year Motorola opted to pursue a wider distribution strategy by making their new Moto Z2 devices available through all carriers. One of those devices is the Moto Z2 Force and if you are thinking about this new phone, TalkAndroid’s own Justin Herrick has an unboxing video to give you an early look at the actual product and what comes in the box.

The Moto Z2 Force comes equipped with a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a dual-camera setup with two 12MP sensors, a USB Type-C port capable of supporting Motorola’s TurboPower charging scheme, and a front-facing camera. The device also comes equipped with Lenovo’s ShatterShield display meaning the screen won’t shatter if you happen to drop the device. You will want to watch the video though for an explanation of the trade-off you are making for that shatterproof protection.

The Moto Z2 Force sells for $720 to around $750 depending on whether you buy directly from Motorola or through one of the major carriers, although AT&T is still out of step with the market listing it at $810.
