Techradar Great Value 2017

Moto G4 Play review

 

Moto's low-end phone raises the budget bar

Android Marshmallow-powered ; Excellent value ; Simple, appealing design

Only supports 2.4GHz band ; No gyroscope ; Doesn't handle multitasking too well

Is a blisteringly fast gaming experience on a 2K resolution screen important to you? If it's not, the Moto G4 Play may very well have everything you're looking for in a phone for next to nothing unlocked.

Motorola Moto G4 Play review: Our second-favorite super-budget phone

 

If you're on the lookout for a cheap phone with a decent camera and long battery life, start here. (But we still like the regular Moto G4 even more.)

Motorola's Moto G4 Play is the most affordable phone in the G4 line. It's splash-resistant, comes loaded with a near stock version of Android 6.0, has great battery life and can be used on any major carrier in the US.

The G4 Play lags when playing games and taking panoramic photos. The display can be hard to read in direct sunlight and you won't be able to customize the phone using Motorola's Moto Maker website.

If you're on the hunt for an affordable phone with pretty long battery life, the Motorola Moto G4 Play deserves your attention. But the regular Moto G4 gives you even better features for just a little more cash.

Lenovo Moto G4 Play review

 

Competition in the budget phone space has never been tougher, and the Moto G4 Play falls far short of the mark.

For $180, last year’s Moto G offered an ergonomic design, IPX7 waterproof rating, Moto Maker, and Moto Actions, It didn’t feel like a budget device, bar the occasional performance hiccup. You might have expected the new Moto G4 Play to continue on this...

Motorola Moto G4 review: At this price, nothing else comes close

 

The G4 packs everything you need from an everyday phone into a water-resistant body. And it charges a rock-bottom price for the total package.

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.

Motorola Moto G4 Play

 

The Moto G4 Play is the smallest, least expensive phone in Motorola's unlocked G4 lineup, with decent overall performance and broad carrier compatibility.

Affordable. Compact design. Stock Android UI with no bloatware. Compatible with all major carriers. Excellent call quality. Long battery life.

Dim display. Not great for gaming.

Conclusions Overall, the Motorola Moto G4 Play is basically a more compact, less expensive version of its larger siblings. a wide range of carrier bands, has decent overall performance, and runs a clean build of Android. For $50 more, however, you can...

Moto G4 Play Review : Another Entry-Level Hit

 

The latest in Lenovo's Moto G collection of devices is the "Play" of the G4 (2016) generation. This means the Moto G4 Play is the least of the pack, least impressive and least costly, too. Today we're going to judge whether this device is worth the...

Low cost ; Clean Android implementation with very little bloatware ; Decent camera ; Reliable hardware and software ; Removable / replaceable battery

Speaker leaves big gap for dust and junk ; Less water resistant than predecessor (Moto G 2015 is IPX7) ; Low built-in storage*

Users looking for an decent device that’s solid, runs well, and has a battery that’ll last all day, this is it. Have a peek at our previous Moto G reviews and consider whether or not it’s worth buying a new Moto G4 Play for $149.99 USD, or if any of...

Lenovo Moto G4 Play Smartphone Review

 

Round 4. The Moto G4 Play may be the cheapest device of the Moto G lineup, but Lenovo has not cut all the corners. In our tests, the 5-inch Android smartphone impressed us with its good price-to-performance ratio, good hardware and long runtimes.

good HD display, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, LTE, stays cool, no throttling at full load, long battery life

quiet speakers, average cameras, no NFC, few accessories

"Motorola delivers a middle-class smartphone in the Moto G, with impressive, special features." This sentence was the verdict of the Moto G of the 3rd generation. We can apply it directly to the Moto G4. The test model combines good hardware and solid...
