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
  • Well built
  • Quite good at heat management - doesn't heat up even when put under a lot of stress
  • Decent camera
  • Great battery life (can easily last over a day)
  • Useful "Ultra Power Saving" mode
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
  • Looks cheap and utilitarian, compared to the much more premium designs of its competitors
  • The dimensions are a tad too big, at least for people with small hands
  • Display on the J7 falls short of expectations - colors are a little off, it's a bit on the dim side, and lacks an auto-brightness setting
  • No Gorilla glass protection on the display
  • Overall performance is good, but the phone is still underpowered compared to its top competition
  • Average camera
  • Loudspeaker is not particularly loud, and having it on the back makes it cumbersome still
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • Also lacks notification LED, gyroscope and a magnetometer or magnetic sensor
