Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Excellent build quality
  • Stylish, slim design
  • Very good, sharp display
  • As is the case with all Moto smartphones, the G4 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)
  • No unnecessary bloatware
  • Smooth, lag-free performance
  • Very good battery life - for moderate use cases, you can go nearly a day and half before having to charge the Moto G4
  • Turbo charging support
  • Good front and rear cameras
  • Good audio quality
  • The Moto Series is known for timely Android updates, which is a big plus point
  • Compact, smart looking, premium design with a metal build - very similar to the Redmi Note 3, but more easy to handle (because of the smaller size)
  • Excellent ergonomics, with the curves on the back making the phone very comfortable to hold
  • Light-weight with an excellent weight distribution, despite the large battery it holds inside
  • Nice, vibrant, and bright display, with excellent touch-responsiveness, and good viewing angles
  • MIUI is a one of the better Android skins around
  • Very good speed/performance - one of the best in this price range
  • Excellent battery life - easily lasts a day and a half in regular use
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor
  • Good audio quality
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • No fingerprint sensor, like the Moto G4 Plus
  • Rear camera is good, but a step behind the Moto G4 Plus
  • The bundled Turbo charger, although decent, isn't quite as quick as the one that comes with the Moto G4 Plus
  • Camera is decent, and almost at par with the more expensive Redmi Note 3, but still could have been better, especially with low light performance
  • Loudspeaker volume could have been better
