What customers say about "Display"
Motorola Moto Z2 Force CDMA NO-Contract Smartphone - Super Black
  • This is my favorite phone I've ever owned. Its fast, good battery, large storage size, and large size screen.
  • I really like the Moto Z Force phone. Coming from a Turbo Droid II, I like the larger screen size and the battery life (surprisingly).
  • The screen looks good. And, I love the fingerprint reader -- I never want to get another phone without this feature, way better than entering a long password all day long or trying to set up geo zones that it remains unlocked.
  • Thus far this phone is great! It is faster, eaiser, and lighter. They didn't tell me the face is plastic and I would still need a screen protector. I had to order it. Yet the pictures are crystal clear.
  • The screen resolution is awesome. The camera I'm not too thrilled with. That's the only reason for 4 stars.
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • The S8 has the best display on the market. The phone is lightweight and powerful. Gaming and video playback are very smooth
  • Awesome display and smooth interface
  • I just bought a phone and first thing i liked was display with edge and sharp colors! Also when you watch videos on youtube, video will take full screen on phone and show you more view!
  • The edge to edge display further enhances the screen. Perhaps the best feature of the phone
  • Love the edge display and how it works very well with the phone both locked and unlocked.

What customers say about "Processor"
Motorola Moto Z2 Force CDMA NO-Contract Smartphone - Super Black
  • The phone itself is fast! It has the same processor that the Galaxy s8's have and doesn't have all the extra Bloat ware attached.
  • Been using it for two weeks. Loaded it up with a bunch (like 30) of my prefered apps and the phone is still rock solid and fast.
  • The best phone I ever have. It is fast, no lags, has 4GB of memory, 64GB of storage space and I just added a 128GB for extra room.
  • The Moto mods feature is cool but gets pricey. It's really fast when I comes to surfing the web.
  • The Moto Z2 Force does not disappoint. It's fast, easy to use and durable.
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Love processor speed, resolution and everything in general.
  • The graphic is amazing and processor of the phone is fast
  • It has fast ram that makes it efficient to run many apps at the same time. It also has enough memory to download several apps.
  • Zero lag due to 4gb Ram and QS835 processor. Definitely the best video quality in the market right now.
  • The processor is nice and fast, and I feel that the storage space is adequate. Should storage ever become an issue it's upgrade-able with Samsung bringing back the SD mini card holder again!

What customers say about "Camera"
Motorola Moto Z2 Force CDMA NO-Contract Smartphone - Super Black
  • The dual camera is really cool, ability to change the foreground subject onto a different background is fun, as well as blurring the background but not the foreground subject.
  • The upgraded dual camera on the back can do some neat tricks as well.
  • Love my new phone and the fact you can't break the screen. I have had two earlier motos break. I have the camera mod and it great for better photos.
  • I got this phone mainly for the camera, and it's just OK. Low-light performance is terrible. I do like the selfie flash, which is well color-balanced. The depth focus feature is cool but not something I use regularly. I like the B+W camera feature; it has good tonal range.
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • There are so many jokes about an android Camera compared to an iPhone but with this invention the joke is over. Regardless what any specs or friend may suggest the Samsung s8 camera shows way more detail than the iPhone 7 and it has a way better flash
  • The camera is a lot better than s7 edge. It is a lot faster too.
  • Great camera with super class picture and nice design. Easy to handle , fast processing
  • Have the best camera ever. Pictures are stunning.
  • The S8 has an awesome camera, very easy to use. Screen is difficult to see in sunlight but picture quality is wonderful.

What customers say about "Features"
Motorola Moto Z2 Force CDMA NO-Contract Smartphone - Super Black
  • Best part of phone is ability to navigate via the finger print sensor! Takes a bit getting use to but definitely a game changer.
  • The printer mod is my daughters favorite. She loves taking goofy pics, printing them, and sticking them all over. Printer is definitely a fun mod.
  • The OLED screen is very colorful, dual cameras are nice (color and black-and-white).
  • I am new to Androids, but I am impressed with the functions on this phone, especially the dual front cameras and the effects that can be done with B&W and color.
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • Great phone. Love the iris scanner. Not impressed by location of the finger print scanner and the curve of the phones edges.
  • Excellent smartphone, with ip68 protocol for water issues
  • Great Phone, Samsung has a lot of great features especially their Samsung pay feature.
  • I love the personal assistant "Bixby", the camera is fantastic, and the Samsung health feature lets me record my vitals and keep track of eating and sleeping habits.
  • I dont like how the speaker sounds. It´s a poor mono speaker.
  • It's a great phone, but wish Samsung would allow this phone to have the dual SIM card feature for their US version.

What customers say about "Power"
Motorola Moto Z2 Force CDMA NO-Contract Smartphone - Super Black
  • I heard a lot of negative things about the battery life, but to date have not seen any short life battery issues. I have had great connectivity, and the phone voice quality is great.
  • This is an awesome buy! Good battery life, no lag!
  • This phone was less expensive than my last one and the battery is much better. the phone functions great too.
  • Excellent phone, has various add on attachments. Takes great pictures, battery last all day.
  • I realize that battery performance varies greatly depending on cell signal strength, but I've had really inconsistent battery life even at the exact same job site with the phone sitting in the car all day. Sometimes it'll drain only a few % over 8 hours of complete non-use, sometimes it'll drain 60%
Samsung Galaxy S8 64GB Unlocked Phone - International Version (Midnight Black)
  • This is my first Samsung phone. I love it. The display is crystal clear. One full charge of battery lasted for > 24hrs.
  • I particularly like the long battery life and the cordless charger.
  • The other things are perfect but my only issue is regarding to the battery performance and it's not as I saw from the reviews and some YouTubes
  • The only weakness I can find from S8 is the battery life. It cannot last for one whole day without charging. But the functionality is really much more powerful compared with iphone.
