Moto Z

Lenovo launches Motorola Moto Z in Kenya

Lenovo, through its Subsidiary, Motorola Mobility, yesterday announced the availability of Moto Z smartphone along with the new innovation Moto Mods in Kenya. With the Moto Mods,  you can transform your phone in a snap, with this new innovation. .

The one thing that struck out for me was just how thin the phone is. Its actually the world’s thinnest premium smartphone. It is however very durable, as it’s made from military aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel.

This phone  comes with a water-repellant coating, which shields the phone from rain, splashes or spills that might come in its way.  This allows you to live your life, allow your children to play with and still have a functional phone thereafter.

Battery life

The battery life is amazing as the phone supports up to 30hrs of battery .When in need, the TurboPower™ Mod provides up to 8 hours of power in just 15 minutes. There is also the incipio offgrid power pack that can give you upto 22hrs of battery. It snaps onto your phone and you can charge as you go.

It does not add bulk to your phone and you can enjoy charging your phone without cables giving you the freedom



Moto Z has a high-resolution 13MP camera with optical image stabilization and laser autofocus, which help users take beautiful, true-to-life pictures in any light and condition. The front-facing 5MP camera includes a wide-angle lens. Moto Z also includes an extra flash on the front camera to ensure users look their best, even in low light.

 Moto Mods: Hasselblad True Zoom

Moto has teamed up with Hasselblad to add advanced imaging capabilities to the phone in a snap. Featuring 10x Optical Zoom and a Xenon flash, the focus is to get the shot – lighting and distance will never stand in the way of capturing your image.

Customers can expect even more control and flexibility with the ability to shoot in RAW format, in addition to the physical shutter and zoom controls, guaranteeing a great handling experience.

With True Zoom, users will also get free access to Hasselblad’s Phocus software for streamlined editing control and the highest quality output. It comes with automatic backup and unlimited free storage for two years with Google Photos.


Moto Mods: JBL SoundBoost

The Moto Z offers a high-quality JBL SoundBoost that will give the smartphone a boost with powerful stereo sound in a snap. The Mod includes a built-in kickstand that is guaranteed to make videos and music more immersive.The JBL SoundBoost includes 10 hours of battery life that allows people to listen longer without using their phone’s battery. The speakerphone also ensures that calls come in loud and clear no matter the location.

 Moto Mods: Insta-Share Projector

The Moto Insta-Share Projector snaps easily onto the Moto Z phone and enables instant sharing of photos and videos.

The Mod projects up to 70” on any flat surface. With the integrated kickstand, people can project at any angle which allows friends and families to gather together to watch their favorite pictures, shows, and even games.

The Insta-Share Projector comes with built-in battery that provides users with up to one extra hour of screen time before using the phone’s battery.



For now, Lenovo has a great offer as they introduce the products.  Moto Z goes for Ksh 61,999 while Moto Z play goes for Ksh 48,999. This comes with a free moto mod that retails for Ksh 15,000 but only for a limited time.

They promise to introduce Moto G 5 from mid may which will be a premium smartphone at not so premium charge of around Ksh 30,000.

My take: Moto is back with amazing feature that allow you to live freely and conveniently. time to grab one for yourself.
