Motorola Moto Z – a modular step forwards
The Motorola Moto Z is a great indicator that the modular movement is finally coming to smartphones. We believe Motorola did a great job on their new Moto Z phone. They’re elegant and really thin. And they have a nice snap-on design. But the real excitement comes from the Motorola Moto Z Mods that add useful new functions. Everything from a battery pack, to speakers. Even a Micro Projector mod that turns the Motorola Moto Z series into a movie theater-on-the-go.
However, there is one issue that comes to mind. How the heck do you protect a phone with a case when swapping modules of varied sizes and shapes? You could have a module that makes the phone longer, or creates an odd shape, or one that introduces a camera lens where none was present before. Will each module have to come with its own case?
But, for those who want a protective case for their phone (and 75% – 80% of people buy phone cases), and those non-Moto Z phone users, there is no need to be worried. Now there’s a smart accessory, a Smartcase, that will let you have your case—and new functions too. And, better yet, you can keep them (your case) when you change phones like the rest of us!
