Motorola Moto G4 Play (white)

 

But there is a Moto G4, and it comes with a larger screen, a better camera and a much faster processor. Best yet, it only costs a little more -- $50 or £39 -- than the G4 Play (it doesn't sell in Australia, but the G4 Plus does). So for my money, I'd...

Motorola's Moto G4 Play is the most affordable phone in the G4 line. It's splash-resistant, comes loaded with a near stock version of Android 6.0, has great battery life and can be used on any major carrier in the US.

The G4 Play lags when playing games and taking panoramic photos. The display can be hard to read in direct sunlight and you won't be able to customize the phone using Motorola's Moto Maker website.

If you're on the hunt for an affordable phone with pretty long battery life, the Motorola Moto G4 Play deserves your attention. But the regular Moto G4 gives you even better features for just a little more cash.

Mini review: Our quick verdict on the Moto G4 and G4 Plus

 

The Moto G4 Plus finally brings a great camera into Motorola's budget lineup. It's decently fast for the price, though the build quality might not last years of use.

Inexpensive ; Large, vibrant screen ; Solid performance for the price

Camera suffers severely in low light ; Plastic build might not be durable ; Not waterproof like last year

Motorola Moto G4 16GB, black

 

Editors' note: The original Moto G4 review, originally published July 6, follows.

The Moto G4's big, bold screen and junk-free software make it a pleasure to use throughout the day. Its ability to survive a dunking will appeal to the clumsy among us.

Processor performance is great for everyday tasks, but gamers will want to shop elsewhere.

With its big, bold screen, water-resistant design and rock-bottom price, the Moto G4 is a dazzling deal.

Moto G4 Review 2016

 

It's time again to review Motorola's budget king devices, starting with the base device Moto G. Two devices come this year - for some odd reason - both the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus (or Moto G4+ if you prefer). These devices have very similar...

If you want to spend no more than $200 (plus whatever tax is in order) on a smartphone, Moto G4 is still the best smartphone on the market. Motorola’s industrial design may have become a bit more bland this time around, but the device is right on the...

Motorola Moto G4

 

Motorola's Moto G4 is a relatively affordable midrange phone with a mix of capable hardware and broad support for all major carriers. It's a good option for budget buyers.

Relatively affordable. LTE bands for all carriers. Crisp 1080p display. Solid battery life. Dual-band Wi-Fi. Expandable storage. Latest software and no bloatware.

Non-removable battery. Can't handle high-end games.

Software and Conclusions Unlike many other midrange phones, the G4 comes with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow , and it has no significant UI changes, aside from Motorola ID in the settings menu which links to your Motorola account . Most significantly,...

Competition in the budget arena has never been more fierce, but the newest fourth-generation Moto G continues to hold its own thanks to a host of hardware upgrades, including a larger and brighter 5.5-inch, full HD display and faster octa-core...

Moto G4 Play review: An affordable smartphone with just the essentials

 

The Moto G4 Play is a smartphone with just the essentials at a great price.

Decent build quality, great price. Removable battery, microSD slot. FM radio functionality

Camera could use improvements. Speakers will do in a pinch but you'll definitely want to use headphones. No gyroscope which means no chop to flash or twist to open camera — two useful Moto features

If you’re after a smartphone with just the essentials at a great price, then you'll definitely want to consider the Moto G4 Play from Motorola.

Motorola Moto G4 review

 

The fourth generation Moto G is here

The Moto G4 is an impressive improvement upon older generations of Motorola's most popular handset and it may well be the best phone you can buy on a budget.

Moto G4 2016 review - the best budget smartphone ever made

 

With its blinding speed, excellent camera and superb battery life, the Moto G4 makes all other budget smartphones utterly irrelevant

Even if you're not sure about the size of the Moto G4, there's simply nothing else that even comes close to matching its value for money. Once again, Motorola's rewritten the rulebook for budget smartphones, and if you'd told me a year ago that...

Motorola Moto G4 review

 

The new Moto G4 for 2016 is here with a bigger brother, the Moto G4 Plus. Here's what we make of the regular model which is one of the best phones under £200.

Although the new Moto G4 is more expensive than the third-generation, Motorola is offering a Full HD screen, better processor, more storage and memory. Not everyone will enjoy the jump to 5.5in or the lack of full waterproofing but this is still a...
