Moto G4 Plus review : The Budget King

Moto G4 Plus review : The Budget King


Motorola Moto G has always been the smartphone that offered strong performance, decent specs, timely upgrades, all at a reasonable price. 

The company recently launched Moto G4 series , though they really messed up doing a three-way split by launching Moto G4 , Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 Play . 

The Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 are almost same , but the Plus has a better camera, adds a fingerprint scanner, includes a TurboPower charger and comes with 2GB as well as 3GB variant .

So , Lets take a closer look !


The round-edged smartphone with a square-shaped fingerprint looks amazing and feels much better in hands . It comes in Black and White color , Though you can make your own via Moto Maker .

The Square shaped fingerprint sensor is not a button , but it looks and feels like a button .

The Smartphone has 5.5-inch FHD display, 153 x 76.6mm dimensions and is 9.8mm slimmer . The Device is really very light ( Yeah even lighter than previous generation Moto G devices ) .

The device has a nano coating which protects it from water splashes .

Specs and Performance

The Moto G4 Plus comes with a 2GB / 3GB / and even 4GB RAM ( Moto Maker ) options with 16GB/32GB/64GB Storage with MicroSD card support  . 

The device comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 chipset, with four cores clocked at 1.5GHz and the other four at 1.2GHz, paired with a 550MHz Adreno 405 GPU.

The specifications are not that nice but they are competitive at this price . The Performance is fast and smooth , Stock Android Marshmallow adds more sweetness to its performance .

The device has a 3,000mAh battery which usually lasts more than a day even with a heavy use . It becomes very easy to charge the device quickly using the Turbo charger . It take actually takes 15 minutes to get six hours of power .


Moto G4 Plus comes with a 16-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, Laser auto-focus and dual-tone LED flash . It has a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie shooter with f/2.2 aperture.

The 16MP camera is just wonderful , but the 5MP is not that good !
