Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Nice, premium, polished design
  • Sturdy build quality
  • Given its large size, the weight is quite manageable at 175g
  • Excellent display, perhaps the best at this price point, with great colors and vibrance
  • CynogenMod 12 allows deeper control on the display - you can tweak the colour temperature, and choose different temperatures for day and night
  • The CyanogenMod UI allows a bunch of customisations, that will come in handy if you are a power user, but retains a nearly-stock Android interface
  • The UI is smooth and stable too, and performs well
  • Very good, lag-free performance, even given the somewhat old processor, which indicates how well the software has been optimized
  • Good front camera for selfies
  • Good rear camera in well lit conditions
  • Decent fingerprint sensor
  • Very good battery life - can last over a day fairly easily
  • Very good audio quality
  • If you like modding your smartphone, and have been waiting for a CyanogenMod-powered phone worth buying, this is it
  • The Zuk branded phones are also the only Lenovo devices where rooting won't void the warranty
  • 64GB internal memory
  • Nice, sleek design
  • The rounded metal frame coupled with the rubber back cover offers good ergonomics and grip
  • Fairly slim at 7.9mm
  • Has good weight distribution, so it doesn't feel heavy
  • Good build quality
  • Well placed physical buttons (volume and power)
  • Very good display - excellent sunlight legibility, punchy colours, good black levels, and Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • As is the case with all Moto smartphones, the G4 Plus runs on a near-stock version of Android, plus the usual suite of Moto enhancements which include Moto Display (for ambient notifications) and Moto Actions (for gesture actions)
  • Without any bloatware slowing it down, the G4 Plus is an all-round snappy performer, and performs well on benchmark tests (although a notch below the top performer in this price group - the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3)
  • The 16-megapixel camera sensor is accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash and a laser autofocus system, which is a substantial upgrade over earlier versions
  • On the whole, this is probably the best camera in this price range
  • The camera app too is significantly improved from earlier versions
  • Image quality for landscapes and macros in daylight is much better than before, with good level of detail and fairly accurate colours
  • Video recording quality is good in both daylight and low light
  • The front camera also manages some detailed selfies when the lighting is good
  • Another neat addition is the ability to directly read barcodes and QR codes from within the camera app
  • Very good fingerprint sensor (fast and accurate)
  • Good video playback - high bitrate, and Full HD videos are handled well
  • Single loudspeaker is loud enough for alerts and general media playback
  • Very good battery life - for moderate use cases, you can go nearly a day and half before having to charge the Moto G4 Plus
  • Supports TurboPower for fast charging of the battery
  • The Moto Series is known for timely Android updates, which is a big plus point
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • This isn't an ergonomic smartphone - it's quite wide, which puts single handed usage out of question
  • Rear camera could have been better under low-light conditions
  • The camera is also just a little slow in focus speed, compared to it's top competitors in this price range such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
  • One feature that's missing from earlier versions of Moto G is the water and dust resistance
  • Bundled earphones are average
  • No NFC support
  • Tends to heat up when put under stress (during heavy gaming, and extended camera use)
  • No magnetometer/compass
