The Lenovo-owned brand, Motorola has unveiled a new handset for their G series. The phone is titled as the Moto G4 Plus and runs a price tag of $200 which puts it up in competition with some excellent phones by Chinese companies like Huawei and Xiaomi. The phone is expected to get wider recognition owing to the acquisition by tech giant Lenovo and this might be the edge that it required.
The Moto G4 Plus is based on the traditional Motorola design taking many cues from its predecessors. This can be recognized from the fact that even without seeing the Motorola logo incorporated into the back; you can easily determine that it’s a Moto. However, the phone is definitely a notch smaller than its predecessors. Moto G4 Plus got a water-repellant nano coating this time around which will make it prone to water splashes. The display department got an upgrade and the 5.5 inch display has 1920 x 1080 Resolution on an IPS panel. Color rendition, brightness and contrast hit the sweet spot. The phone is powered by the newer Snapdragon 617 chipset coupled with Adreno 405 GPU to give you one of the most decent performing mid-range devices.
The phone comes in two variants; one accommodates an internal storage of 16 GB which is coupled with 2 GB of RAM whereas the other holds 32 GB of internal storage bearing 3 GB of RAM. Motorola started improving their phone cameras with last year’s Moto X and this year the legacy continued with the Moto G4 Plus bearing an exceptional camera. The phone bears a 16MP rear snapper while a 5MP front camera is also there to fulfill your selfie needs. To sweeten the deal, both cameras are equipped with flash.
The Moto G4 Plus includes a fingerprint sensor at the front below the display to cater to your security needs. As with all Motorola phones, the newest Android flavor comes out of the box and a bonus app-lock feature is included. The phone includes a 3000 mAh battery and also includes Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 2.0 features. The 3.5 mm jack delivers crisp audio quality whereas the speakers aren’t shabby either.
