#MotoZ #Android – Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid review : Though the smartphone market was nearly as massive a few short years ago as it is today, it was a terrible business to be in unless your company’s name was Apple or Samsung. There were simply no other phone vendors that could figure out how to make any real money selling smartphones. Try as they might — and oh, how they tried — rival phone companies spun their wheels while Samsung and Apple pulled in all of the smartphone industry’s profits.
Today, things are different. Galaxy phones and iPhones are still the most popular handsets by a wide margin, but other companies have managed to put a serious dent in Apple and Samsung’s combined market share. Gaps in the market have been exposed and several companies are taking advantage. Most notably, Chinese vendors have found success selling high-quality phones at surprisingly low prices.
But price isn’t the only area of the smartphone market where there is an opportunity to strike. There’s also an innovation gap just waiting to be filled, and Lenovo’s new Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid are the latest phones that will attempt to fill it.
The LG G5 is a perfect example of a terrific idea executed poorly. People want smartphones that are sleek and slim, but they also want more power and exciting new features. There’s only so much companies can stuff into such slim packages, so LG had an idea: Why not create a system that keeps the main phone slim and sleek but allows users to extend the device’s functionality using special attachments that integrate perfectly?
The idea was smart but the execution is sorely lacking. There are two big problems with the LG G5: first, the phone’s modular design requires users to remove the phone’s battery and reboot anytime they want to switch modules. Second, LG’s module selection was almost nonexistent at launch. Even now, there aren’t very many add-ons to choose from.
