Moto Z3 Play

Pioneering the Z3 series, new Moto Z3 Play has become official today in Brazil where the company unveiled its latest smartphone, which will eventually be released in most of the regions where Moto phones are officially present. The new Motorola smartphone price starts at R$ 2,299, which roughly converts to Rs 40,000. Now that is an expensive phone for the processor it houses. Oh, you’re wondering why we said that.  

Because the new Moto Z3 Play enabled with same moto mods functionality comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor. The chipset that is found on two of the most popular phones from Xiaomi and Asus are priced below Rs 15,000 in India. Of course, it won’t exactly be fair to compare the new Moto phone with those devices. But that is not the firepower you’d expect when you spent a whopping Rs 40K on a smartphone.
