2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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
  • Good build quality and design
  • Polycarbonate back that has a smooth matte finish which looks and feels good
  • Fits perfectly in hand and isn’t slippery either, offering a nice grip when holding
  • Good Super AMOLED display - good color reproduction, sharpness, viewing angles and an above average sunlight readability
  • Customizable display mode - Adaptive display, AMOLED cinema, AMOLED photo, and Basic
  • Samsung's custom UI over Android adds useful features like the Ultra data saving mode, and the S Bike mode
  • Butter smooth performance without any noticeable lag
  • Decent camera - the daylight shots and macro shots are impressive with fine amount of details and sharpness - low light performance is average though
  • Front facing LED flash for the front camera
  • Decent sound quality via headphones
  • Good call quality/reception
  • Decent battery life - good for one full day - with moderate use
  • Also comes with Ultra power saver mode, which saves juices by applying a greyscale theme to your home screen and limiting the number of usable apps
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • No notification light, which is present in most mid-range smartphones nowadays
  • The audio output on the speaker is on the low side
  • No quick charging technology on the battery
