Motorola leaks Android O

You read that right! In a recent promotional image for the new Motorola Moto G4 phones Motorola states it will get updated to Android N and O!



Motorola leaks Android O

Two days ago Google introduced Android N at Google I/O with some tweaks and new features, but now Motorola just leaked the name of the next Android version: N. Will Google stop releasing system versions named after desserts? We can't know that for sure yet. What will O improve over N? It's too far away to know.




One thing is clear, though, the new Moto G4 will get the next two versions of Android, and that's something really cool. When will it get N or O? That's a very good question that we are not able to answer right now, but let's hope it gets N as fast as possible.

Moto G4 Plus is a overall a great deal , but if you value good value, you could find an even better deal out there. So here are five reasons not to buy a Moto G4 Plus .



1. Overpriced -


The Motorola Moto G4 Plus comes in two variants - 16GB / 2GB at 13,499/- and 32GB / 3GB at 14,999/- . The Smartphone is a bit overpriced as compared to ZUK Z1 which comes in 13,499/- and Redmi Note 3 which comes in 9,999 ( 16GB/2GB ) and 11,999 ( 32GB/3GB ) .


2. No water resistance -


The Motorola Moto G4 Plus has an advanced nano-coating technology that creates a water repellent barrier to help protect against moderate exposure to water such as accidental spills, splashes or light rain. It Not designed to be submersed in water, or exposed to pressurized water, or other liquids like the Moto G3 .




3. Too big -


5.2 is the most preferred size of a Smartphone . The Moto G4 Plus comes with a 5.5 inch FHD Display , that seems to be too big . Big Smartphone's have a great chances to slip from hand and  even get shattered after a drop . 

After-all many People prefer to use 5 inch and 5.2 inch Smartphones .


4. No Notification LED -


There is no way to find out if you’ve missed any incoming calls or message while you had to ignore your phone? Of course, you can enable Moto Display and get pop-up on your screen when you get any notification . But Still Notification LED Plays an important role in bringing your attention towards the Smartphone , if you gets any notification .



5. Heating issue -


According to a Gaming Review with Temp Check of Moto G4 Plus by Geekyranjit , The Temperature of the device goes to 45° in 15 minutes of Gaming .

Though Geekyranjit hadn't noticed any lags while playing Games , but the screen becomes too hot under 15 minutes of Gaming .
