Three has announced that it will be exclusively ranging the Moto Z2 Play with the Gamepad mod to make it into a handheld games console.

We reviewed the Moto Z2 Play in July last year. It impressed us how well it runs for a reasonably priced device, but we didn't get to try it with the Gamepad mod at the time.

Now Three UK is adding one to an exclusive gaming bundle it will be showcasing at the PC Gaming Weekender being held at London's Olympia this weekend - Saturday 17 - Sunday 18 February.

It will then stock the bundle with Three price plans from April.

The Gamepad mod requires no Bluetooth pairing as it connected directly to the Moto Z2 Play. That reduces latency for gaming. It also has its own built-in battery, so shouldn;t drain your phone during gameplay too much.

The Z2 Play itself has a great battery itself, lasting up to 30 hours on a single charge. It comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display and 12-megapixel rear camera.

There is a pre-loaded Moto Game Explorer app, which gives the player direct access to over 200 games.

Pricing and tariff details will be revealed soon. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
