But it adds a headphone jack and keeps the same amazing Night Sight camera that can shoot great photos in the dark. (Daytime photos look amazing, too.) It's because of its great value that the phone recently earned a CNET Editors' Choice. Read our Google Pixel 3A review.

It works with a Moto Mod modular accessory, which attaches to the back of the smartphone using magnetic pins. The phone is $500 and the Mod costs extra, but even with the additional costs, the Z4 is the cheapest 5G phone yet. Read our Motorola Moto Z4 review.
