2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 24+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Gorgeous looking metal and glass build - it's high-end style at a reasonable price
  • Comfortable design for one-handed use - with a 5.2-inch scale the Moto X hits the sweet spot for scale - it's easy to hold in one hand - comfortably, too, thanks to those rounded-off edges - without feeling like it's a chore to extend fingers across the screen
  • Waterproofing, with IP68 weather-resistant construction
  • Some of Motorola's add-ons include Moto Key to unlock additional devices via fingerprint (like your PC), Moto Actions to perform features by physical actions, Moto Display for always-on display, Moto Voice for an always-on voice assistant (will be enabled in India later), Wireless Sound System (to connect up to five Bluetooth devices - if you fancy having a bit of a party with a stack of speakers)

Display

  • Good, punchy display with nice contrast and colours
  • There is no edge-to-edge display here that is becoming more common now among both mid-range and flagship devices

Software

  • Effective front-facing fingerprint scanner with gesture control
  • The software continues to be stock Android supplemented with some intelligent Moto applications - an approach that has worked very well for Motorola and earned it a lot of fans

Performance

  • Good/smooth performance in regular use
  • While the performance is good in daily use, when pushed with the heavy apps/games, the performance is not quite to the level of the phone's top competitors - in fact the performance is only a little bit better compared to its budget cousin - the Moto G5S Plus

Camera

  • Decent dual camera setup on the rear - does reasonably well with both normal shots and bokeh shots, especially in good light
  • Decent front camera too
  • Other Camera features include a barcode, QR code and business card reader, which is auto-entered into the device, plus object and landmark object recognition to gain additional insights into famous places
  • The cameras placed on the back, in a large protruding circular section, makes for a unique look - something that may or may not be to your taste
  • The camera app is somewhat slow to launch and a little slow to focus

Battery

  • Good battery life, assisted by an efficient processor, and a relatively smaller screen - should comfortably last the day even with heavy use
  • Fast charging (TurboCharge) support

More

  • On the whole too, the camera is decent, but there are certainly better camera phones in this price bracket - the sluggish HDR, slow focus speeds in video and the not-always-effective bokeh mode will leave you wanting more
  • On the whole, the Moto X4 might be a good option only if you are really keen to get a compact phone, but generally in terms of both performance and camera, there are better phones in this price bracket
