Look, Motorola may be one of the few smartphone brands that actually interests me. With other phones, there’s barely any cool accessories you can get. With the Moto Z3 Play, you get excellent 1st party and 3rd party accessories. It is for now exclusive to Amazon Prime members only. Here are the 5 Best Moto Z3 Play Mods and Accessories you should buy right away.
Here’s a bitter truth I want to share before hitting the list. There are phones that are better than the Moto Z3 Play. One of the few reasons for you to get it has to be the Moto Mods. So, you don’t think you are going to get one, you are better off with other phones. However, if you are getting the Z3 Play, don’t be too greedy and get the Moto Mods. They will work well not only on this phone but also future Motorola phones.
1) Motorola Hassleblad True Zoom Camera
Let’s start the list with one handy Moto Mod. Made by Motorola with association with Hassleblad, the Motorola’s True Zoom Camera mod lets you take stunning photos with DSLR like quality. Not only that, you get additional features when you connect this Moto Mod to the phone.
With 10X Optical Zoom, Xenon Flash, and physical buttons for zooming and a physical shutter button, the mod turns your phone into a powerful point-and-shoot camera! There are a number of photo options in the settings which include RAW format as well. Select that option if you want to edit the photos later for an even professional look. How cool is that?
But that’s not the best part about the phone. What is, is its price. Right now, you can grab it at 50% discount off!

2) Moto Gamepad
Console gaming is fun. There’s no doubt about that. But what about gaming on a mobile device? After the death of PSP and the PS Vita, there are very few gaming consoles that excite me as much.
Introducing the Moto Gamepad for the Moto Z3 Play. If you thought gaming on an Android phone sucked. This one is for you. This gamepad mod allows your Moto Z3 Play to transform your phone into a Nintendo Switch-like console, complete with the dual controller sticks, D-pad, four buttons and shoulder buttons.
In addition, the gaming Moto Mod packs in an inbuilt 1035mAh battery to help you game for a longer period of time. Most of the Android phones support this gaming controller. So, you really don’t need to worry about the compatibility.
And the best part about this gaming controller, in particular, has to be its price. Formerly priced over $110, this gamepad mod is now available for less than $80!
3) Motorola Polaroid Insta-Share Printer
I will be completely honest here. This one is for a niche market only. If you love taking photos and have them saved with yourself permanently, this is one Moto Mod to get. If you don’t fancy photos all that much, just skip this one and move ahead.
If you suddenly want to print out a phone or make a scrapbook like a memento? Motorola’s Polaroid Insta-Share Printer has got you covered. This mod turns your Moto Z3 Play into a super-portable Polaroid camera, which you can use to shoot pictures at the moment, add filters and print instantly. It prints a 2×3″ picture on the ZINK paper, i.e. Zero-Ink Paper. Seriously, no ink required, just refill the easily available ZINK papers, and you’re good to go!
This particular Moto Mod is available for a discounted price of $150 directly from Motorola.
4) Moto Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa
Yes, there are other speaker mods for the Moto Z3 Play out there, but we recommend this one in this list of 5 Best Moto Z3 Play Mods and Accessories.
Moto Z3 Play, being an Amazon exclusive, the company is giving the Speaker for free (limited time only, however). Use it as a normal speaker for your music or use it like on the Amazon Echo for weather reports, reading aloud e-books and controlling your smart home gadgets. It also includes a low-profile docking mode and a built-in battery that can last for up to 15 hours.
If you miss out on the slick opportunity where you get this Moto Mod for free, you can still buy it from Motorola directly.
5) Moto Insta Share Projector
Watching videos and playing games on the Moto Z3 Play is an absolute treat, with its big notch-less 6″ screen. And if want something more, thisMoto Insta Share Projector will definitely come in handy.
If you are looking to watch videos or movies with your group, you can simply slide in this projector mod. With the Moto Insta Share Projector, you can project your phone’s screen into a wall of your choice up to 70″ in size! The projector also adds 1100 mAh of extra battery to the phone.
For now, you can get it for a discounted price of $150.
Do Moto Mods even make sense?
This is one question that I get asked all the time. Motorola Moto Mods are not cheap. So, it’s natural for people to doubt its utility and value for money.
If you ask me, yes, Moto mods are definitely worth the money and something every Moto Z users should buy. the great thing about the Moto Mods is that it will work on all Z series of smartphones. The company has also officially announced that they will work on future Motorola phones too.
In addition to that, the Moto Mods, when attached to the phone can enhance the phone’s functionality greatly. For instance, when you connect the Moto Insta Projector to the phone, your phone will turn into a portable project. Connect the Insta-Share Printer and you will have yourself a photo print right in your fingertips.
None of the other phones have these features even if you decide to shell out $1000 (ahem, iPhone X). So, there’s no doubt, Moto Mods do make sense. A lot of sense if you ask me.
