Yes, Apple may have equipped its iPhones with some mighty camera, but is it powerful enough for a closeup from a distance? Samsung boasts its latest Galaxy smartphones as sizzling Android options, but its latest modification may need to be more carefully noted.

Though over recent years it’s becoming increasingly clear the industry is in a state of incrementalization and significant innovation has stagnated. Whether it’s a slight bump in processing power, a few more megapixels, or slightly larger screens, we’ve been limited by what fits inside a smartphone.

That ends now.

Welcome to the world of Moto Z

With Moto Z and Moto Z Play, Motorola (now owned by Lenovo) has rolled out a carpet of Mods (add-ons) ecosystem.

The two flagship smartphones, with a slew of user-friendly interchangeable Moto Mods, can transform your mobile experience in a snap.

As the world’s thinnest premium smartphone, Moto Z features an aircraft-grade aluminum design, new camera technology, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor and TurboPower charging. Moto Z Play, the most economical grade, features our longest lasting battery ever.

According to our sources, Moto Z Play is a favourite among Motorola employees.

But they are not done yet. There are a growing number of Moto Mods being developed by top industry brands, and the Mods available today are designed to work with future generation Moto Z phones.

Moto Z is now available at Bell, Rogers Telus, Koodo, Sasktel and Wind for $900 without contract, while Moto Z Play is $650 outright at Rogers, Telus and Koodo.

The Moto Mods are priced between $99 (JBL speaker) to $399 (Insta-Share Projector), while the stylish Style Shells is priced at $29.
