The Moto Z2 Force is official, here’s where you can buy it

4 min read

Starting today you can preorder the slim 6.1mm thick modular Moto Z2 Force Edition from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon. This is one of Moto’s most recent additions to their Moto Mods series of phones that allows you to extend their capabilities with mods that attach to the back. Some notable Mods would include the Incipio offGRID™ Power Pack, 360 Camera Moto Mod, and JBL® Soundboost 2 that give you the flexibility to make the most of your phone.

The Moto Z2 Force Edition packs in some of the latest and greatest tech starting with a 5.5-inch 1440p Super AMOLED screen,  fingerprint scanner, Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage with a microSD card slot that accepts up to 2TB cards. The display uses ShatterShield technology and is guaranteed not to crack or break. However, it is not fully waterproof and only offers a water protective coating.

The Moto Z2 Force Edition is launching with Android Nougat 7.1.1 and comes with a  2720mAh battery, which definitely a bit on the small side, especially compared to last year’s Force. This is where the 15W TurboPower fast charging or an extended battery Moto Mod will come in handy.

There is a dual 12MP camera set up on the back with an f/2.0 aperture and laser assisted auto focus. The front facing camera is a 5MP shooter with an f/2.2 aperture with an 85-degree wide angle lens for all your selfie needs.

This is one impressive phone with plenty of high-end specs and features crammed into a very slim body. Unfortunately, a headphone jack was not one of those features and it doesn’t look like Moto will be bringing that back.

Where can you get it? Unlike the first Moto Z line, the Z2 is going to be available on every major carrier in the US, which is fantastic to see. Better yet, just about every carrier is offering quite a few deals on the phone, all listed below. The Moto Z2 Force will be available in August.

Where to Buy the Moto Z2 Force


AT&T is offering a free Moto Insta-Share projector mod valued at $299 when you order before October 6th, which pairs up perfectly with their DIRECTV NOW service. The Moto Z2 Force Edition will be the first phone to come with DIRECTV NOW pre-installed and ready. AT&T Unlimited Plus and AT&T Unlimited Choice subscribers can add DIRECTV NOW service for as little as $10 a month with a $25 video credit. Now you can take those 60+ channels and thousands of on demand shows and movies with you and enjoy it on the phone or share with friends with the free Moto Insta-Share projector.

Customers in Austin, Indianapolis, and 20 other metro areas will get a chance to experience AT&T’s new 5G network by the end of the year, thanks to Moto Z2 Force Edition’s support for up to gigabit speed LTE connections.


Sprint is offering a deal to lease one Moto Z2 Force Edition and get one free using their Flex lease program. Where you can lease the phone for $33 per month for 18 months. With the Flex lease program Sprint offers customers the ability to try out the phone and decide later whether or not they want to purchase or upgrade. You can also redeem a free Insta-Projector Moto Mod with purchase for a limited time with eligible purchase. The Moto Z2 Force will also be the first phone on their network to support up to gigabit internet speeds once Sprint provides a maintenance update at a later date.


T-Mobile is also offering a buy one get one deal with the Moto Z2 Force Edition on their network. Where you can pick it up for $30 down and $30 a month for 24 months while enjoying speeds up to a gigabit.


Verizon is offering the Moto Z2 Force Edition for $15 per month for 24 months with pre-order, along with a free Insta-Projector Moto Mod by mail while supply lasts. They also have two exclusive Moto Mods for it including a Moto GamePad and JBL SoundBoost 2 speaker in a hot Verizon red. Verizon’s network will also be pushing forward with up to gigabit speeds later this year and the Moto Z2 Force will be one of the phones ready to take full advantage of it.
