The Moto Z4 is tragically boring and behind the times

Motorola promised at least three years of Mod compatibility when it announced the first Moto Z phones in 2016, and we're about to go beyond that with the new Moto Z4. Good on Motorola for sticking with it and giving consumers some confidence their Mod purchases would not be in vain. Although, Mods still don't seem like a worthwhile purchase, and even Moto is phoning it in with the Z-series.

The main draw to Motorola's 'Z' devices is the attachable modules, but with the Moto Mod ecosystem being what it is, it's not clear why the company is still clinging to the dream of a (partially) modular phone. Leaks of the Moto Z4 began earlier this year, and now the phone has unceremoniously appeared on Amazon.
