Motorola Moto G4 review


The fourth generation Moto G is here

The Moto G4 is an impressive improvement upon older generations of Motorola's most popular handset and it may well be the best phone you can buy on a budget.

Moto G4 2016 review - the best budget smartphone ever made


With its blinding speed, excellent camera and superb battery life, the Moto G4 makes all other budget smartphones utterly irrelevant

Even if you're not sure about the size of the Moto G4, there's simply nothing else that even comes close to matching its value for money. Once again, Motorola's rewritten the rulebook for budget smartphones, and if you'd told me a year ago that...

Motorola Moto G4 review


The new Moto G4 for 2016 is here with a bigger brother, the Moto G4 Plus. Here's what we make of the regular model which is one of the best phones under £200.

Although the new Moto G4 is more expensive than the third-generation, Motorola is offering a Full HD screen, better processor, more storage and memory. Not everyone will enjoy the jump to 5.5in or the lack of full waterproofing but this is still a...

Moto G4 2016


What can £169 get you in the smartphone world of 2016? You can forget about the Samsung Galaxy S7, iPhone 6S or Huawei P9 – you'll need three or four times that for those. It will get you a new Moto G, though, and for many that will be plenty.

Motorola Moto G4 review: The best low-budget handset?


An extraordinarily good budget smartphone; the Moto G4 is a little large, perhaps, but for the money, it's basically flawless

Motorola Moto G4: Yes, it's brilliant


The latest instalment in the Moto G saga is a superb smartphone. A little large, perhaps, but for the money, it's basically flawless

Mini review: Our quick verdict on the Moto G4 and G4 Plus


The Moto G4 Plus finally brings a great camera into Motorola's budget lineup. It's decently fast for the price, though the build quality might not last years of use.

Inexpensive ; Large, vibrant screen ; Solid performance for the price

Camera suffers severely in low light ; Plastic build might not be durable ; Not waterproof like last year

Motorola Moto G4 16GB, black


And if there was no Moto G4, the less expensive, stripped-down Moto G4 Play would be the deal of the century. For just $150 (or $100 for Amazon Prime members who submit to Amazon Prime ads, like this ), £130 and AU$279, you get a budget phone that's...

The Moto G4's big, bold screen and junk-free software make it a pleasure to use throughout the day. Its ability to survive a dunking will appeal to the clumsy among us.

Processor performance is great for everyday tasks, but gamers will want to shop elsewhere.

With its big, bold screen, water-resistant design and rock-bottom price, the Moto G4 is a dazzling deal.

Moto G4 Review 2016


It's time again to review Motorola's budget king devices, starting with the base device Moto G. Two devices come this year - for some odd reason - both the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus (or Moto G4+ if you prefer). These devices have very similar...

If you want to spend no more than $200 (plus whatever tax is in order) on a smartphone, Moto G4 is still the best smartphone on the market. Motorola’s industrial design may have become a bit more bland this time around, but the device is right on the...
