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
  • Turbocharging support
  • Good front and rear cameras
  • Good audio quality
  • The Moto Series is known for timely Android updates, which is a big plus point
  • Solid build quality
  • Beautiful metal-and-glass design
  • Water-repellent nano-coating on the phone's surface
  • Excellent implementation of the modular accessory system, just like its bigger brothers - the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force - which makes this phone truly versatile and offers an affordable entry point into the Moto Mods ecosystem
  • When it comes to expanding the functionality beyond what a traditional smartphone is capable of doing, no other system or implementation does it better than Moto Mods!
  • Compatible with all existing Moto Mods (battery life extender, projector, camera mods etc)
  • Beautiful, bright AMOLED display, with wide viewing angles and punchy colors
  • Mostly stock Android UI, which will appease the Android purists
  • Good speed/performance in daily use
  • Good call quality
  • Very good, speedy fingerprint sensor
  • Outstanding battery life - comfortably one of the best in the business
  • Turbo charging support (full recharge time of about 110 minutes)
  • Good rear camera that captures detailed images, especially in good lighting conditions
  • Good front-facing camera too - produces a pleasant level of sharpness to accompany its solid details capture
  • On the whole, even without any Mods, the Moto Z Play is a complete package and offers good value - the mods are the icing on the cake
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 Turbocharger, although decent, isn't quite as quick as the one that comes with the Moto G4 Plus
  • Slightly unwieldy
  • Gaming performance is not the best in class
  • Camera has longer exposure times when shooting photos under low light
