These days our phones can do some pretty amazing things. From controlling a smart home to taking DSLR-quality photos. And if you own a Moto Z, yours can do even more thanks to Moto Mods. Magnetically attachable modules that transform your phone into a TV projector, speakers, a powerful camera, portable printer, or extends battery life. With that said, these are the best Moto Mods available right now.

If you own any of the compatible Moto Z phones, you’re likely interested in a Mod or two. Motorola actually has over 25 different accessories available, and more are coming soon. Everything from speakers, wireless charging, 360-degree 4K cameras, to a Polaroid camera that prints photos on the fly. It’s all pretty neat, really.

There are a lot of exciting accessories for any device, but Moto Mods really transform your smartphone experience. Whether you’re looking to add some excitement to your phone or just bought a Moto Z2, these are the Mods worth consideration. Some of the latest mods include a gamepad, 360-degree camera, or a speaker with Amazon Alexa built-in.

Phones That Work With Moto Mods

Before we begin, these are the phones that work with Moto Mods in 2018. At the time of writing this post, Mods are available for the Moto Z, Moto Z Force, Moto Z Play, Moto Z2 Play, and the Moto Z2 Force. Use any of these official Moto Mods to improve battery life or just extend functionality so you can do more with your phone.

Then, we’re expecting a new Moto Z3 in the summer of 2018 with even more features, a bigger bezel-free display, and more Mods to add to the ever-growing family. Basically, the Moto Z3 will work with any Mod you buy. It’s an investment for the long haul, not just a one-off accessory for buyers.

In closing, here are the best Moto Mods available right now. Our slideshow below has more options and extra details for buyers, along with links to buy one today. There are technically 15 different Mods for the Moto Z family. Then, when you add in all the different style shells, battery packs, and wireless charging mods, there are actually 25+ mods to choose from.

Moto Mods attach to the back of these phones thanks to “really strong magnets” and communicate via 16 metal pogo pins on the back of each device. The connection is very tight and secure, and we had no issues while reviewing the phones and modular system. This is smartphone mods done right.

Our favorite attachment is the new Polaroid Moto Mod. Snap, shoot, print and shake. It adds a dedicated camera shutter button and prints photos right as you take them. It’s basically a mini printer on the back of your phone. That or the JBL SoundBoost 2 and Gamepad.

Now that we’ve shared a list of the best Moto Mods available, here is more information about each one. Our slideshow will tell you everything you need to know and end with a link to buy any of the Mods you find interesting. We’ll update this post throughout 2018 with any and all Mods as they’re released.

Instashare Projector

Instashare Projector

The first and most exciting Moto Mod for the Moto Z, for me, is the Instashare pico projector. This little modular simply snaps on to the back in seconds and instantly transforms the smartphone into a powerful projector capable of streaming a 70-inch HDTV on the wall or ceiling.

Users can project the phone display and popular apps like Netflix, YouTube, HBO Go, and likely games and other things as well. The Instashare projector has a built-in kickstand to allow for virtually any angle of viewing.

It has an included 1,100 mAh battery so owners can project video for an hour without using the phone battery. Sadly, after buying one, it only projects at 380p resolution. You can get the Instashare projector free when you buy the new Moto Z2 Force.
