The handset is still boasting a plastic frame, however is extremely durable and feels like metal thanks to the metal paint coating even though its not.

Lenovo branding is apparent, shown off on the box and each time you turn on the handset. The back features a 16 MP camera with a snappy auto-focus assisted with the laser focus and phase detection Auto-focusing. The camera also has a pro mode which like pro modes from many other manufacturers gives you great detail of control over your setting before you begin to capture a photograph.

The fingerprint sensor is quick with a response time of 750 millisecond and the sensor basically works from any angle.

The phone feels great in the hand and the back panel aka shell is available in a black or white at launch, you will be later able to buy coloured shells for changing out the back.

Moto has removed IP rating which means that the G4 unlike the Moto G Gen 3 will be not be water resistant, but the handset does have nano coating.

The sim slots come with nano to micro sim adapters, which is great if you have been using a nano sim slot device. If not, then you get free adapters.

    Moto G4 Plus no doubt about it.

  • SahilRoy

    You cannot compare Moto with likes of Xiomi or Le etc. Moto’s R&D is far more mature that any of these and they deserve this little premium.

  • SahilRoy

    I would go for Moto G4 any day as Moto is one of the best when rolling out Android upgrades. That single factor is a winner for me.

    I don’t know why Moto did not put buttons on the left and right side of the fingerprint sensor like Samsung does. Just my opinion. Personally, I’m not a fan of on-screen buttons.
