Find the best deals on the Moto Z3 and Z3 Play and Moto G6 during Black Friday 2018. We are reviewing online, print and in store ads to find the best sales, deals and offers on the Motorola Moto Z3 and the Z3 Play from Thanksgiving Day to Cyber Monday 2018.
Both phones are excellent mid-range options that offer a lot of value for the price. The Moto Z series big upside is that clip on mods (see more below) allow for upgrades to specific features you want to enhance, such as a projector, an additional battery, an enhanced camera and much more. We will bring you the best prices on both the Moto Z3 and the Z3 from now, until Black Friday 2018 and through the launch of 5G early next year.
The Moto Z3 and the Z3 Play are not exactly twins, but certainly stunt doubles. The exteriors are nearly identical, but the internals vary a little bit. The 6.1” gorilla glass screen and aluminum frame are the same. Both share the AMOL HD+ screens. Both have 12 MP dual rear cameras and a single 8 MP front facing camera. The Z3 and Z3 play share a lot of other features too, such GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, a side mounted finger print scanner, usb-c charging, same 3000mAh batter and Deep Indigo exterior coloring.
The Moto Z3 and Z3 Play separate under the hood. First and probably most important is they have different processors. The Z3 has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, which is a bit faster than the Z3 Play’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 636. The Snapdragon 636 was the heart of the Z2 which was price about $100 than both of these models. The next big difference is the Z3 starts out with as has a lot more additional storage. The Z3 starts with 64GB and the micro SD is expandable to 2TB, that’s a warehouse full of storage. The Z3 Play comes with 32 or 64 GB of internal and is expandable to only 512 GB. Both phones have 6GB of RAM.
The last difference is the availability of 5G. The Moto Z3 is the first phone that is scheduled to be 5G capable. It will require the purchase of a separate 5G Mod, the price of which has not been announced yet. Also, 5G is scheduled to be rolled out city by city early next year. So it’s hard to determine how much this option will be worth.
The primary down side of the Z3 is that it is a Verizon exclusive. Which is not really a surprise because they are the first carrier scheduled to move towards 5G. So if you aren’t with Verizon then the Z3 Play is your only option. There has been no mention of if the other Moto Z series will be 5G capable with the Mod.
The Moto Z3 is currently price at $480 and the 64GB Z3 Play comes in a little cheaper at $454.99. An unlocked 32GB Moto Z Play comes in even cheaper at $275.
