Is the Moto Z Play still worth it?

I'm looking for a budget Android phone and the Moto Z Play checks all of the boxes for me. However, seeing as it is already a year old, is it still worth it? Are there other better Android smartphones for the money?

 

If only the Moto G5 Plus was available in my country.

only if you can get it below the MSRP. it's not worth the original price anymore, but if you can get it at a discount, go for it.

 

keep in mind the moto X4 is coming soon, and it might check even more boxes. (SD 660, IP68, 3800mAh battery, etc. if the rumors are true.)

Laptop:

HP Spectre X360 - i7 8560U - MX150 - 512GB SSD - 16GB DDR4 - I lost my pen so I convince myself I don't need it

Motorola is extremely late when it comes to releasing new devices here in the Philippines. Last I asked, there is no word yet regarding current generation phones. They only sell the Moto Z, Z Play, G4 Plus, and other lower tier phones at the moment.

 

Also, the prices here are inflated. The current SRP for the Z Play is PHP 23,000 (~$455). The closest phone that is decent for the price is the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) for PHP 20,000 (~$400).

I doubt it

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.
