Aperture not as fast as the competition

We already used seeing rear cameras ranging from f/1.7 to f/1.9, and I was quite disappointed that the rear cameras of the phone are only f/2.0. It's still a fast lens and I assume this is due to dual-camera configuration.

Ultra-slim phone

Motorola made sure the new Moto Z force looks super sleek by making it only 6.1mm thick, which is very slim. This has a negative implication on the battery size though, but people who like slim phones will love this one.

Only available in two colors

The Moto Z2 is only available in two colors, Super Black and Fine Gold. Quite unfortunate, because it's nice having the option to choose a color you like, and the color selection here is obviously very limited. There is also a Lunar Grey color but it's T-mobile exclusive.

Disappointing battery capacity

I'm disappointed that Motorola has opted for a 2730 mAh battery. This is due to the slim design of the phone. Just a reminder, the Moto Z Force Droid comes with a 3500 mAh battery.

Expensive

The moto z2 force edition costs $756 (retail price) on Verizon the last time I checked (July 26th, 2017). It's definitely an expensive phone, but it does have a good value in my opinion, still, you have to pay a hefty price to enjoy its great features.
