Motorola Moto G4 Plus Review – A Budget Phone You’ll Want to Buy

The label “budget phone” is misleading to many. There is a tendency that if the phone is “budget”, then it has several unforgivable flaws that are absent in more expensive ones. But today, this is not true, which proves Motorola Moto G4 Plus.

Motorola Moto G4 Plus smartphone – Reviews

Some budget smartphones like the Nexus 5X have fingerprint sensors and fantastic cameras. Others, like the OnePlus X and Honor 5X, have a metal body and an attractive design. Affordable, cutting-edge phones are becoming the norm, not the exception.

Last year’s Moto G ranks among the best when it comes to waterproof construction, a 13-megapixel camera, and the use of Moto Maker, Motorola’s online settings. This year saw the release of the new Moto G. However, now Motorola is owned by the Chinese company Lenovo and positioned as a premium brand. As a result, the product has a different name. Despite this, the impressive specifications and bargain price that made the Moto G such a success last year have not changed in the new model.

Nice, comfortable design of the Motorola Moto G4 Plus

Honestly, it’s amazing how much you can get for $250 these days.

Thanks in large part to the water-resistant plastic outer shell, the G4 Plus doesn’t feel as bulky as some of its metal-edged competitors, and is more comfortable to hold in your hand. The beveled edges of the phone almost completely merge with the borders of the back of the case, because of this it seems that it is made from a single piece of plastic. The border between the case and the detachable back is almost imperceptible, making the smartphone fit perfectly in the palm of your hand.

Unfortunately, the buttons on the Motorola Moto G4 Plus are by no means perfect. The volume rockers and tiny power switch feel flimsy to the touch. The power switch staggers in its socket, and during operation it gets stronger and stronger, especially if you often carry your phone in your pocket.

It’s hard to find fault with the G4 Plus hardware, though. The front glass is Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The fingerprint sensor, a square capacitive button that looks like a blackish silver cufflink, responds to touch just a few milliseconds slower than the sensors in the Nexus 6P, 5X and Galaxy S7. And the textured removable back cover is quite resistant to bending and scratches.

The G4 Plus isn’t pretty, but its components look good together. The 16-megapixel silver-bordered rear camera with F/2.0 aperture sits between the dual LED flash and two autofocus sensors (more on that in a moment). To the right of the camera, there is a small cutout for a noise-canceling microphone, and just below a protrusion adorned with the Motorola “M” logo.

The front part also has a minimalist design. A speaker and a 5-megapixel wide-angle front camera, a small fingerprint sensor and a hole for the main microphone have found their place here. This simplicity of design extends to the sides of the G4 Plus, with a single 3.5mm audio jack on the top, a Micro USB port on the bottom, and a Micro SIM tray on the left side opposite the power and volume buttons.
