2-minute Review [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
  • Good build quality with tight-fitting polycarbonate body
  • Good ergonomics - thin bezels and curved back make this phone easy to handle with one hand
  • Rubberized back offers good grip
  • Good display - sharp, vibrant, and has great brightness levels, good contrast levels and accurate color reproduction
  • Near stock Android UI which is fast, polished and functional - with some useful tweaks and features
  • Moto Display - an updated lock screen feature which lets you quickly scan through multiple notifications without unlocking the device
  • Decent speed/performance
  • Very good camera - images are detailed, and have accurate color saturation levels particularly in well lit conditions
  • Good call quality
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Excellent battery life
2-minute Review [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
  • No Major Negatives!
