Moto Z vs Moto Z Force: Android 7.0 Nougat Update Comparison
Back in 2012 Motorola was bought by Google and this had all other smartphone producers on edge since everyone was wondering if Google will now roll out more Android updates to Motorola devices and leave everyone waiting in line. This proved not to be true since Google didn’t control the company for too long and instead they sold the rights over to Lenovo.
Ever since Lenovo acquired Motorola, the company started producing their successful Moto G smartphones and Moto 360 smartwatches. Motorola kept on releasing brilliant devices every year and in 2016 they launched the Moto Z and Moto Z Force, which both use Android OS. Motorola recently announced that they will roll out the new Android Nougat OS update during this week and this made Moto Z owners very enthusiastic since the update will bring support for Google’s DayDream VR headset.
The addition of virtual reality support might stir customers away from Samsung’s Galaxy and Google’s Pixel direction into Motorola’s way. If customers do decide to give the Motorola smartphones a try, they will find out that the devices are surely up to par with all other companies’ flagship device and they will get their money’s worth.
The only Motorola Z and Z Force users that will not receive the update this week are owners that bought network branded Moto Z devices. The roll out date for the Nougat OS depends solely on the network carrier.
Motorola released two great devices, both being equipped with impressive hardware. The devices are powered by Qualcomm’s MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 processor that’s paired with 4GB of RAM. They both rock the same 5.5 inch AMOLED 1440×2560 pixel resolution displays that have a pixel density of 535. The only differences between the devices is the camera and battery department. The Moto Z Force is equipped with a better 21MP OIS rear camera while the Moto Z sports only a 13MP rear camera, also the battery used by the Z Force is a non-removable Li-Po 3,500 mAh battery which is considerably bigger than the non-removable Li-Po 2,600 mAh battery used by the Moto Z.
