Finally, the Moto Z2 Force supports Motorola's Moto Mod ecosystem, which is where the 360-degree camera Moto Mod comes in.

Moto Mod is also equipped with a 1035mAh battery which is capable of recharging your smartphone offering up to 8 hours of extra charge says Verizon. The Mod interfaces with the stock camera app and gives you several modes for picture-taking: split-screen, a sliding, panorama-style mode, a fish-eye view, and a circular view. With a simple pop of the smartphone on the Gamepad, the user is good to go. You'll also get the company's unbreakable (but scratch-prone) ShatterShield display and compatibility with Moto Mods.

Just like any other mobile game controller, the Gamepad Mod does not require wires or Bluetooth pairing prior to usage. The gamepad instead connects directly to the Moto Z through pins on the back of the phone, for a more analog and lag-free experience (claims Verizon). Would you even consider dropping $80 for extra battery life and ease of use in your mobile games?

Among the lineup included in the announcement, the Moto Gamepad was the last of them awaiting availability details.

If neither of these limitations deter you, prepare your wallet for August 25 since that's when the Gamepad mod will go on sale.
