Moto Z2 Force vs Galaxy S8: all you need to know

Samsung released the Galaxy S8 earlier this year, which the company is hyping for its large screen and its ability to power a desktop computer (like the Motorola Atrix from 2011). A lot of fans and consumers might be wondering how it compared to Motorola's newest flagship, the Moto Z2 Force. Here's a comparison of the two:

Specs comparison for lazy people

The Samsung phone comes with a larger screen at a smaller size.  It offers a 5.8" screen vs a 5.5" screen. The Samsung screen is curved and has minimum bezels, while the Motorola screen is shatterproof and can resist drops. The Moto Z2 Force is 2mm thinner than the S8, though, and it's also a lighter device.  The S8 comes with IP68 protection while the Z2 comes with Motorola Splashguard. Both come with the latest processor, the Snapdragon 835. While both devices come with Android Nougat, the Moto Z2 Force offers a Pure Android experience without bloatware.

The rear-camera on the Z2 is a dual camera, vs. a single camera on the S8 (both 12MP), while the S8 comes with a larger front-facing camera. The battery on the Samsung device is 300mAH bigger, but there's also more screen to power, so keep that in mind. 

Innovation comparison for those who care

Both devices are marketed to offer key innovative features. The Galaxy flagship offers a desktop-experience when attaching your phone into a dock, that will power a screen to make it seem like you are using a real desktop. Motorola did this 6 years ago, with the lapdock interface.

Samsung also marketed its big screen-to-body ratio as a key innovation. It's a curved screen that looks nice and takes full advantage of the front of the device. Is this a big game changing feature, though? I don't think it is. It's just a larger screen. 

What about the MotoMods? Now that's innovation. The MotoMods platform allows the back of your phone to give you endless possibilities. You want a better camera? You can have it. You want a physical keyboard? It's ready. You want a barcode scanner for your business? Done. Want your phone to be the DJ at the party? You can do it.

The Moto Z2 Force is a flagship phone indeed, but it's not about the phone anymore. It's all about the ecosystem and how the Mods can amplify your experience. All in all, while both devices offer incredible top-notch user experiences and features, the Moto phone comes with a shatterproof screen and a platform that allows you to amplify user experience, so it is the winner here.
