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
  • Top-notch build quality, and good looking design
  • Good display with accurate color reproduction, and good legibility even under sunlight
  • Good software package with Samsung's Touchwiz UI
  • Great multimedia app package with an advanced music player, and FM radio too
  • Decent front and back cameras with good colors and contrast levels (although detail could have been better)
  • Decent battery life
  • Good audio quality
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
  • The dated Snapdragon 410 chipset means that although the phone performs decent in daily tasks, it falls quite a bit short of phones with more modern chipsets in this price range
  • Average loudspeaker
  • No fingerprint sensor
