To improve the image, Motorola has added what it calls "Kuad Pikel Technology", which uses pixel-binning to enable 48 megapixel rear-capture recording, following the trend of other newer higher-end phones including OnePlus's # 7 Pro. Around the front is a 25-megapixel shooter that uses the same technology "Kuad Pikel".
Motorola says both sensors should offer improved details and colors, as well as better performance in low light. The company even added its rivals Pikel 3 Night Sightu called Night Vision.
In a short time with the phone, the phone feels more premium than the rival cheaper Pikel 3a, which starts at $ 399. The videos looked sharp on the OLED screen, and the night vision made a solid job of improving the images shot in the dark room. Whether the Z4 can confront the Pikel 3A camera or that its cheaper price can reach a value of $ 669 OnePlus 7 Pro performance remains to be seen.
The optical fingerprint sensor is embedded in a screen similar to the technology used on the OnePlus 6T and 7 Pro. As with the OnePlus phone, the setting was flawless and unlocking reacted during our short usage of the phone.
Wireless charging is not present, nor is IP resistance to water (Motorola says the phone can withstand spills and rain). In some good news, the 3.5mm headphone jack returned to the bottom of the phone after it disappeared last year's Z3 and Z2 Force.
The Z4 will also support existing "Moto" modules for fixing accessories such as a 360 degree camera, battery, camera, gamepad or projector.
While the Z4 4G LTE is the phone, it will support the 5G moto mode that adds support for the Verizon's 5G network (Motorola has also discovered that Z2 Force will be able to use 5G mode this summer).
The phone will be available in the "flash" gray version of Verizon on June 13, with "Frost Wave" coming on June 27th. New Verizon users will be able to capture the phone for $ 240 ($ 10 per month for 24 months) with 5G mode dropping to $ 200 for "limited time", allowing you to get a 5G ZG for $ 440 (Samsung's more powerful Galaki S10 5G, which has a built-in 5G, runs $ 1300).
Verizon will also give up $ 10 5G additional fees for those who buy 5G mods and have one of the unlimited plans for Above or Beiond.
The unlocked version will be available from Best Bui, B & H and Amazon for $ 500, and Motorola will connect its 360-degree Moto Moto with these purchases.
