Moto G4 Plus review


It's a Plus, but not in the way you think

Speedy, smooth performance ; Great camera ; Bright, crisp display

Plastic body ; Speaker isn't great ; No NFC or Android pay

The Moto G4 Plus is an impressive phone for the money and yet more evidence that the gap between flagships and budget smartphones is still closing.

Motorola Moto G4 Plus review: Plus and minus


When you think "Plus" in the phone world you tend to think extra large handset. It's all Apple's fault. But that's not precisely the case with the Moto G4 Plus: sure, it's pretty large with its 5.5-inch screen, but it's the same size as its Moto G4...

Better and bolder design than before, microSD expansion, solid battery life and TurboPower fast-charger included in the box, might be mid-spec but can handle most apps

No NFC so no Android Pay (seems foolish considering the fingerprint scanner), price point puts it into contentious market position, standard G4 does much of what you'll need

When we first saw the Motorola Moto G4 and G4 Plus, we though the Plus was hands-down the one to choose. Having used both handsets for weeks and days at a time, however, we've taken an about-turn on that initial feeling: the Plus does have plenty of...

Moto G4 Plus


The Motorola Moto G is the standard by which every budget smartphone is measured. Since the first version was released back in 2013 the Moto G has dominated the TrustedReviews Awards Budget Phone of the Year category. You can't get better bang for your...

Moto G4 vs Moto G4 Plus comparison review: Motorola's new 2016 phones compared


Moto G4 vs Moto G4 Plus: What is the difference between the new Moto G4 2016 and the new Moto G4 Plus 2016, Moto G4 vs Moto G4 Plus

It’s slightly unusual for a ‘plus’ model of a phone not to have a larger screen, and with the Moto G4 having largely the same specs as the G4 Plus, but an extra £30 for a fingerprint scanner and a better camera doesn't seem bad at all. It's a bit...

Moto G4 Plus review - the one true king?


Still a great phone, but its camera isn't quite good enough to warrant a £60 premium over the regular Moto G4

Ultimately, the Moto G4 Plus doesn't offer quite enough to make it a viable upgrade over the regular G4, and even its super-fast processor just can't quite match its nearest competitor, the OnePlus 2, making it something of an awkward middle child...

Moto G4 Plus Review: In Depth


Moto G4 Plus review: This upgraded version of the brilliant Moto G4 smartphone boasts a smart 16-megapixel camera and a fingerprint sensor, but is it worth the extra cash? Here's our full Moto G4 Plus…

Smooth performance ; Fingerprint sensor ; Dependable camera ; Solid battery life

No improvement in camera shots ; Hand-filling design

The obvious question is, which is best for you: the Moto G4 or Moto G4 Plus? Well, we’d honestly say that unless you’re constantly snapping hyper kids, there’s no need to splash out extra money on the Plus’ 16-meg camera. That super-smart auto-focus...

Moto G4 Plus Review


The Moto G4 Plus is one of the latest smartphones from Lenovo, and features a 16 megapixel camera.

As with most other smartphones, the Moto G4 Plus can struggle in low-light, and the lack of optical image stabilisation doesn't help here. However, we have been relatively impressed with the flash performance of the built-in dual LED flash system, and...

Budget Moto G4 phones are winners, but the G4 Plus has the better camera


$50 gets you two big features that are totally worth it.

Bigger, sharper displays ; So affordable ; Good midrange performance ; Best cameras on the Moto G series yet ; G4 Plus has better camera over G4 ; G4 Plus comes with fast, accurate fingerprint sensor ; Two-day battery life ; Expandable storage ; No...

Lost water resistance ; Slippery ; Lacks NFC for Android Pay ; Crappier selfies on G4 Plus

The Moto G4 and G4 Plus are both solid budget phones, but for $50 more, the G4 Plus nets you a better camera and a fingerprint sensor.

Lenovo Moto G4 Plus review


How does it differ from the normal fourth generation Moto G?

Long lasting battery; Great quality screen; Quick performance; Very responsive touchscreen and fingerprint reader; Dual SIM

Ungainly size; Awkward pricing and options

It’s not as good value as the non-Plus Moto G and even better phones are available for not much more cash, but it’s still a very good smartphone
