Review: Moto G4 Plus

Release is something that doesn't show up the real thing about any product, Reviews do it a far better way. So here we are today, to give you our thoughts on the new MOTO G4 PLUS

The device is with us from around a week now, and with initial impressions the phone is pure beast. Talking about the device hardware, the design could have been more better but still is a good choice and to talk about the weight the G4 is super light, For a device having 5.5Inch screen and 3000mAh battery it is really a lightweight phone but you will miss the curved back design handling if you have been using the MOTO G3 earlier.


Image above shows the interior of the device, it has 3 ports inclusive of SD Card and Sim Cards respectively. The battery is non removable and the plastic case is good enough. The camera part is raised a slight above the body, surprisingly the images shown up on the websites has the camera raised much above but it is not that much raised when in hands. Well, to finish with the hardware, the buttons are only at the right side of the device, One lock button and volume rocker. The lock button has some lines on the surface that differentiate it from volume rockers. The company has cared enough to give users the traditional feel of the moto family with the moto dimple at the lower end of the camera. Customers will also get the Moto G3 design part with the 3.5mm headphone slot with signature curve of the rim. In front, you get a Fingerprint sensor (not a button) which is very fast and responsive to which company claims that it unlocks the device in less than 0.75 secs. At the left of the sensor sits the microphone and has the same at the back for noise cancellation alongside the camera tray. The speaker is at the front which is also used for the calls.

Now about the software, Moto G4 Plus runs the pure stock android, the 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Yes, there are some minor tweaks like the company has provided the clear all toggle for the recents menu which is not available in current marshmallow system image. Other tweaks include the color selection for the device which supports two options, One for NORMAL and other for VIBRANT. The device sports Octa-core processor with Snapdragon 617, to the people who have query related to the 617 chip, the device seems to handle everything thrown at it very easily and heavy games doesn't posses any lags or whatsoever, Yes the device gets warm a bit later but is bearable easily. But with the specs the device is no doubt in one of the midrange toplisters. Updates are promised till Android 'O'
