Motorola's Moto X Force is a more than capable smartphone that offers quality features, but it primarily sells on its heavy duty screen.

The good

  • Can take a hit from every angle.
  • The price is right.
  • Impressive 21MP camera with 4K recording.

The bad

  • One colour option.
  • Processor lacks punch.
  • Water-repellant coating is good, but not good enough.

The Moto X Force boasts an impressive 21MP camera, long-lasting battery and a near-indestructible shell.

A lot of Motorola’s Android offerings have catered to a market of klutzes and ruffians. While it has generally gone for a clean and tidy Android UI, its range of smartphones has never been too afraid to get down and dirty.

The Moto X Force continued that legacy by offering a premium smartphone in a seemingly indestructible shell. In addition to a 21MP camera, 4K video capture a Snapdragon 810 chipset, the X Force also boasts a shatter-proof display and water-repellant coated internals. Oh, and it’s clearly named after one of the most indestructible superhero teams in history.


  • Near indestructible screen.
  • Water-repellant coating is good, but not good enough.
