Say hello Moto one more time.

Motorola brings some of its latest smartphones with their come back in the Philippines.

First is the modular Moto Z smartphone. Announced back in June, it replaced the X family and ignited a revolution to a modular setup. The Moto Z features a 5.5-inch Quad HD screen protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4. Due to its extremely thin profile of only 5.19mm, it has been limited to only 2600mAh battery. It may struggle in lasting a whole day, but there’s a MotoMod battery pack for those who need more power.
