Phone fully charged. Will diconnect from charger and use phone  briefly when it shutsdshut without warning. I have freed up space. Removed/uninstalled intrusive apps, went into safe mode and problem still arises. It's getting worse on a daily basis.

We always want to make sure you have a phone that is working properly, Pathopax. I appreciate the details on the steps you have already taken. Let's work together to get to the bottom of this. When did this start? What are you doing on the phone when it shuts down? Does this only happen shortly after taking it off the charger?

It started roughly 2 weeks ago.

I had to remove several apps and free up memory on the internal drive according to the Verizon Health Check. I didn't remove apps that were intially installed with the phone. 

I did shut off sync and have turned it back on. 

Problem occurs mostly with messaging and anything that uses camera or file share. 

I also have 5 copper inlets missing on the back of the phone. They have been missing for well over a year. They only keep me from using my JBL speaker/power boost. Customer Support at Verizon stores are too incompetent. They dropped my phone after the first copper inlets was missing and caused 4 more to disappear. To add insult they tried to show me how to remove my microSD card and broke the plastic cover to it. Then told me I was not covered for a replacement.

my wife and I both have the droid moto z. I can honestly say I hate the phone. we both have been having problems with them shutting down for no reason. i would have 70 percent battery and it would shut down.  the only way it would power back on is to have it plugged into a charger. we are so over it with these droids.

Same here

 This is the first out of 10 Motorola's I've owned that has had issues. Because of this Mod gimmick, I think that whoever the company merged or bought, really brought them down. 

I'm now constantly having to stay connected to a charger. 

All I wanted was a replica of my last phone. It at least lasted 5 years to the one.
