Motorola Moto X4

 

The Motorola Moto X4 phone combines midrange specs with a solid design, dual rear cameras, and built-in support for Amazon's Alexa voice assistant.

Attractive, waterproof design. Solid specs. Dual-sensor camera setup. Great battery life. Amazon Alexa enabled. Comprehensive network banding.

Picks up smudges easily.

The Moto X4 is close in price to the U11 Life, but gives you more for the money. While both phones have similar levels of overall performance and solid features, the X4 pulls ahead due to its superior camera capabilities, broader carrier compatibility,...

Motorola Moto X4 Android One review: a Nexus by any other name

 

Android One's first appearance in the US is a strong start

Great build quality, with water resistance ; Fast, clean software ; Promise of software updates for two years

Slow camera performance ; Average image quality from camera ; Only available through Project Fi

Given Google’s commitment to the Pixel brand and its statements that it has “no plans” for future Nexus products, Android One phones are the closest thing we’re likely to get to the Nexus line. And the Moto X4 is the closest thing to a Nexus successor...

Review: Motorola Moto X4

 

Motorola's mid-range Moto X4 is a classy glass-and-metal Android handset that boasts two cameras, rapid charging, and advanced software features. The phone is affordable and sold unlocked with support for most U.S. LTE 4G networks. Here is Phone...

The Moto X4 from Motorola is a great alternative to the Z-branded, mod-compatible line of handsets. It doesn't pack the truly high-end specs of the Z2 Force, but it has a classy design that puts it in a different league when compared to Motorola's...

Motorola Moto X4 review: The X factor is back

 

The Moto X series has been neglected at Lenovo and Motorola recently, and it's been a long time since new models in the series have been released. Now the X-Factor is back at Motorola with the Moto X4, which is making its debut at the IFA 2017. We have...

The complete Moto X4 package gave a good impression in our initial review. Motorola’s new X smartphone is comfortable to hold in your hand, runs fast and smooth and has a display that is pretty to look at. Although the dual camera may still be lacking...

Moto X4 review

 

With a dual-lens camera, glass design and waterproofing the Moto X4 has a lot going for it considering its mid-range price.

We’re pleased to see that Motorola has revived the Moto X. For the most part, we like the new glass design and the specs and features are good for the £350 price - it looks like a more expensive phone.

Motorola Moto X4 review

 

Moto muscles back into the mid-range with X appeal

Very smart metal and glass build ; Neat bonus wide angle rear camera ; Water resistant ; Punchy screen

Slow camera ; CPU roughly matched by cheaper phones

Top drawer design at a sensible price, but the Honor 9 is still the value king in this class

Motorola Moto X (4th Gen) review: Hands on at IFA 2017

 

Motorola has revived with Moto X series after a two-year hiatus, but how will the 4th Gen Moto X fare?

We don’t have much information on the UK pricing or release date just yet, but we will update this page as and when the information rolls in.

One of the highlights of the Motorola Moto X 2017 will be the Dual Camera, till now only premium smartphone models have been equipped with a Dual-Camera, but in 2017 they will also make their debut in midrange smartphones. The Moto X 2017 seems to get...
