Advanced low-light camera.The Moto Z is both incredibly fast and insanely thin. Under the hood, the Z uses a Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB of RAM and an Adreno 530 GPU, all of which helped to make the performance feel smooth as I leapt in and out of apps and generally tried to throw the phone for a loop. No dice. Motorola’s hands-off approach to Android usually helps its phones feel fast too, but the version of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow we’ve got here isn’t as clean as what you’ll find on, say, the Moto X Pure. The build I played with was the Verizon-exclusive version (the so-called “Droid Edition”), which comes loaded with the same tweaked interface and Big Red bloatware we saw on the Droid Turbo 2. Ick. Hopefully, the unlocked Moto Z shipping later this year runs stock Marshmallow.
