The new Insta-Share Printer Moto Mod plugs into your Moto Z device so you can print your snapshots instantly on 2x3-inch adhesive sheets. Does that sound vaguely fun? Well, you'll pay $200 for the privilege.

Verizon updates Moto Z2 Force with support for its upcoming Gigabit LTE

Verizon updates Moto Z2 Force with support for its upcoming Gigabit LTE

5G is still a year or two away, and even then, hardly any phones will support the technology. Many networks have yet to saturate the existing LTE wireless standard, but Verizon (among other carriers) has been working toward that goal in some areas. Verizon has started pushing an update to the Moto Z2 Force, giving it support for the carrier's upcoming 'Gigabit Class LTE' service.

[Deal Alert] Verizon Moto Z2 Force is $456 ($300 off) with free Projector Moto Mod at Best Buy

Lenovo's introduced a bunch of new models to the Moto brand since it acquired Motorola, and one of those is the Moto Z2 Force. The Z2 Force is basically Motorola's flagship, and in our review, we found that while it was incredibly quick and took nice pictures, it was just too expensive. But now, Best Buy is offering up the Verizon Z2 Force for a stunningly low $456 with a free Insta-Share Projector Moto Mod.

Motorola releases kernel source for Moto Z2 Force

Motorola releases kernel source for Moto Z2 Force

Motorola is on a roll recently with its kernel source releases and the latest is for the Moto Z2 Force. The device launched in the US in August and it seems that a few users were already antsy about grabbing the kernel code because they raised an issue on the Moto GitHub. Well, their wait is now over since the release is official.

The source is now available to download on GitHub for the Android 7.1.1 NCX26.122-59-8 build. If you don't know what most of these words mean, you needn't worry. As a user, you won't get anything out of the code, but developers can use it to build better and more stable ROMs based off the official kernel source.

[Update: Moto X4 too] Motorola reveals the Moto Z and Moto G devices that will get Android Oreo, G4 series excluded

[Update: Moto X4 too] Motorola reveals the Moto Z and Moto G devices that will get Android Oreo, G4 series excluded

Back in the days when the Moto X could be used with one hand and Moto Maker was a cool new thing, Motorola was one of the best manufacturers with software updates. Since their skin is so minimal, anything else would be disappointing. But Motorola is not what it once was, and it's fallen behind in terms of software support. The Lenovo-owned company has just released its update roadmap for Android 8.0 Oreo.

Motorola's Z2 Force may also have the so-called "jelly effect" popularized by the OnePlus 5

It seems like Motorola's latest just can't catch a break. Following the unfortunate news about the hardiness of the ShatterSheild display, it turns out there may be another problem with the screen. The Moto Z2 Force may also suffer from the "jelly" effect which results in a slight distortion of the screen on certain animations.

The Moto Z2 Force performs well in JerryRigEverything's durability test

The Moto Z2 Force performs well in JerryRigEverything's durability test

Lenovo's latest Moto flagship has been through the mill a bit recently. The problems with the Z2 Force's shatterproof but easily scratchable plastic-covered screen have been well documented, and the smaller battery is one of a number of other disappointments when compared to its predecessor. Its price was seemingly slashed by $80 before it was even released (although Moto denies this), and David has even concluded that the Z line and its mods add up to little more than a thinly veiled money grabbing exercise. Moto could use some good news then, and luckily YouTube phone torturer Zack Nelson (JerryRigEverything) was left impressed with the Z2 Force.

Moto Z2 Force review: Focusing on the wrong things

Moto Z2 Force review: Focusing on the wrong things

Motorola kicked off the era of Moto Mods last year with the Moto Z and Z Force. The latter was only available on Verizon in the US, but this year the Z2 Force is coming to all US carriers. It's also the only flagship phone the company is releasing this summer—there's no regular Z phone at all. That makes the Z2 Force a critical phone for Motorola as it seeks to convince consumers and mobile carriers that Mods are a good idea.

Motorola has quietly dropped the Moto Z2 Force price from $800 to $720 [Update]

Motorola announced the Moto Z2 Force recently with a price of $800, a full $80 more than the first generation device.

The phone is currently listed on the Motorola website at $720, the same as last year's phone.
