2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Rugged, and good looking design
  • The curved back fits well into the palm and due to the coarse plastic finish, it really feels good to hold
  • Decent display with accurate color reproduction, good brightness levels, adjustable color temperature and an in-built blue-light filter
  • Gorilla glass protection on the display
  • Smooth, effortless performance, including with resource intensive games
  • 3GB of RAM helps with good multi-tasking performance too
  • Excellent, super long lasting battery, that can deliver up to a 2-3 day backup!
  • Also includes a Power saver mode, which adjusts processor performance, screen brightness and restricts access to features that use up more battery
  • Unique reverse charging support - can be used to charge other devices
  • Decent loudspeaker, and audio quality
  • 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)
  • Very good multi-tasking performance too with 3GB of RAM
  • 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
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Feels bulky, and tips the scales at over 200g
  • Visibility under bright light is average due to the reflective nature of the screen
  • The Zen UI is a bit cluttered and sometimes buggy (although highly customizable)
  • Average camera
  • Charging speed is on the slow side
  • 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
