Motorola’s Z2 Force may also have the so-called “jelly effect” popularized by the OnePlus 5

It seems like Motorola’s latest just can’t catch a break. Following the unfortunate news about the hardiness of the ShatterSheild display, it turns out there may be another problem with the screen. The Moto Z2 Force may also suffer from the “jelly” effect which results in a slight distortion of the screen on certain animations.

That should sound pretty familiar, as it’s the same issue the OnePlus 5’s display has.

Motorola’s shatterproof Z2 Force is now on sale – and not just from Verizon


The Moto Z2 Force is a pretty great phone (our review here) so long as you can deal with the easily scratchable screen. If you’ve been interested in the modular, shatterproof phone, you can now actually pick one up. The launch is particularly notable because its one of the few Motorola flagships to be available outside of Verizon in the US.

Opinion: Motorola’s Z phones are quickly becoming little more than Mod money grabs

Motorola announced the Z2 Force at an event in New York City yesterday, ostensibly the 2017 flagship for the struggling smartphone brand, following up the Z and Z Force of 2016.

Hands-on with Motorola’s $299 360-degree camera Moto Mod

Motorola just formally announced the newest addition to its collection of Moto Mod add-ons, a 360-degree camera that magnetically attaches to the back of any of the Moto Z series of devices.
