Talking about its design Moto G4 Plus has a quite sleek and light weight body weighing just 154 grams. Volume rockers and the power button is placed on the right-hand side while the USB port and 3.5 mm Head phone jack is present at the two opposite tops. It Also has a stereo speaker design but only top speaker works while other is just a dummy. One thing to mention is that it also comes with stereo microphones as well. The rear camera is little bumped up which can cause some major scratches to the camera lens.
Moto G4 Plus with nearly stock android experience manages to give an experience worth remembering and 3/2 GB of RAM just adds a layer of cream over it. Multitasking is not at all a problem with this device and Updates are regular as well, currently it is running on Android 7.0.1 (OFFICIAL) and 7.1.1 (ROM/UNOFFICIAL) and I am using this device from 8 Months and performance has never been an issue for me and never got this device lagging with moderate usage but one thing that we should not forget is that It is a budget oriented device and it was not at all meant to be perfect, so you need to compromise in some fields.
Personally, I feel that Motorola could have used a different processor rather than using Snapdragon 617 which is clocked at 1.5 Ghz as It is a processor which is considered to overheat the device and Moto G4 plus is no exception. The device usually heats up while playing heavy games over 10 minutes and using camera application for over 15 minutes which can make you device freeze for a moment. There is also a screen burn issue that I noticed in my 8 months experience which can be fixed for free by taking it the service center if your device is under warranty. So the overall performance of this device is quite up to the mark but improvements can always be done.
With A 3000 mah Battery it easily lasts over a day on a moderate usage and on an average you get almost 4 to 4.5 hours of screen on time and no heating issue in the battery is there. Now Talking about the charging it comes with Qualcomm fast charging v2.0 which is just brilliant. In just 1 hour it fills it up from 0% to 80% which just blew my mind off.
Now This is the biggest positive point about this smartphone, With a 16 MP Sony Sensor (Laser Autofocus, Dual tone LED flash) It manages to take such beautiful shots that you can compare with a shot taken with a DSLR in terms of quality. For video, you can record up to 1080p at 30 FPS and 480p at 120 FPS (slow motion). You also get a Pro Mode in this device which can take your photography game to the next level. So if you are thinking to buy a budget smartphone with the camera as a priority then this is the phone for you.
- Here are some samples taken with this device in Auto mode
The fingerprint sensor on Moto G4 Plus is located at the bottom of the screen and I can confidently say that It is the best fingerprint sensor in any budget smartphone right now. You can add up to 5 fingers and 95/100 Times it got my fingers right. The response rate is extremely fast and it can be operated from an orientation i.e. 360 degrees.
So overall it is a really good device with some flaws but if the camera is your priority then this is the best budget camera smartphone for you! Buy it from the links given above for 10% Discount from Amazon.in
