Motorola Moto X4 review

 

Motorola's high-end phones pack punch, but entry-level and midprice Android devices are where this phonemaker really shines. With the Moto X4, the company has another midrange winner that gives you some pretty great hardware and software tricks for a...

The Moto X4 is water-resistant, has NFC, expandable memory and dual rear cameras. Motorola's variant comes with tons of useful software tricks.

The phone's camera is slow to launch and snap photos. Its wide-angle camera warps straight lines too severely.

Though it can be slow at times, the Motorola Moto X4 hits all the notes for the right price, making it a worthy midrange contender.

Moto X4 review

 

With a dual-lens camera, glass design and waterproofing the Moto X4 has a lot going for it considering its mid-range price.

We’re pleased to see that Motorola has revived the Moto X. For the most part, we like the new glass design and the specs and features are good for the £350 price - it looks like a more expensive phone.

Motorola Moto X4 review

 

Moto muscles back into the mid-range with X appeal

Very smart metal and glass build ; Neat bonus wide angle rear camera ; Water resistant ; Punchy screen

Slow camera ; CPU roughly matched by cheaper phones

Top drawer design at a sensible price, but the Honor 9 is still the value king in this class

Motorola Moto X (4th Gen) review: Hands on at IFA 2017

 

Motorola has revived with Moto X series after a two-year hiatus, but how will the 4th Gen Moto X fare?

We don’t have much information on the UK pricing or release date just yet, but we will update this page as and when the information rolls in.

Motorola Moto X 2017

Motorola Moto X4 review

 

Once Motorola's flagship phone, the X went through an episode of multiple personality disorder in 2015 (remember the Style, Play and Force?) only to be replaced at the top by the Moto Z last year. Feeling at home in the midrange, the X-series is now in...

Motorola Moto X4

 

The Motorola Moto X4 phone combines midrange specs with a solid design, dual rear cameras, and built-in support for Amazon's Alexa voice assistant.

Attractive, waterproof design. Solid specs. Dual-sensor camera setup. Great battery life. Amazon Alexa enabled. Comprehensive network banding.

Picks up smudges easily.

The Moto X4 is close in price to the U11 Life, but gives you more for the money. While both phones have similar levels of overall performance and solid features, the X4 pulls ahead due to its superior camera capabilities, broader carrier compatibility,...

Motorola Moto X4 Android One review: a Nexus by any other name

 

Android One's first appearance in the US is a strong start

Great build quality, with water resistance ; Fast, clean software ; Promise of software updates for two years

Slow camera performance ; Average image quality from camera ; Only available through Project Fi

Given Google’s commitment to the Pixel brand and its statements that it has “no plans” for future Nexus products, Android One phones are the closest thing we’re likely to get to the Nexus line. And the Moto X4 is the closest thing to a Nexus successor...
