We received another snap from Motorola. In World Cup year, the launch of a digital TV module is not a bad idea. The snap still features an extra battery to help power the TV and charge your smartphone.
It works like digital TV, so you will need to tune the channels just like you did on your television or digital converter. In addition, in the application there is option to save the schedule to watch later.
In our tests it did well during the time we used. It is quite true that the battery of the smartphone is drained very fast. The PowerPack 2800mAh is needed if you want to watch a football game, or a movie. Using only the battery of your smartphone will drain it, so that you no longer have the average range of your smartphone.
It was sent together for the review of the snap, the Moto Z2 Force , watch our smartphone review .
The dimensions of the snap are: 152.1mm in height, 73.2mm in width and 9.4mm in thickness. The battery is 2800 mAh.
The Motorola offers access to Play Globe for 6 months. Comes in the set a card to be inserted as payment method in the app. It’s another option for you to consume content.

Simply attach the product, which the phone recognizes itself and begins to make the necessary installations. It’s all very simple and handy, but it requires the internet to download the most current snaps and app management versions of this module.

Is it worth buying this snap?
The snap costs $ 399. Currently, I have not found where to buy it, not even in the Motorola store. For the price only the option to have a Digital TV in the phone, I do not think a good return, but in return, you increase the battery capacity of the smartphone at 2800 mAh.
Only the Power Pack snap costs $ 299. If you are interested in buying the Power Pack, in that case, spending $ 100 more will be a good investment. Buy Digital TV, just for buying, to watch open tv? Does not sound good to me. And you, would you buy a mini TV for your Moto Z?
