Moto X4


Motorola Moto X4 Review: Is the latest entry in Moto's mid-range X series a worthy buy? Or are you better off looking elsewhere?

Sharp glass-backed design ; Crisp display ; Smooth performance

Heavy ; Unreliable and gimmicky camera ; No AMOLED display

The Moto X4 is a compact, stylish handset at a price that’s temptingly short of the current flagship crop. However, there are several rough edges that have us questioning its position in Motorola’s increasingly crowded range.

Motorola Moto X4 review: In a tough spot


On the one hand we welcome the X back to the fold, on the other it needed to be pushing the flagship stakes as the non-Moto Mod device. When it hits

Comfortable design for one-handed use ; Effective fingerprint scanner ; Waterproofing ; OLED screen ; Intelligent Moto applications integrate well with Android software

Design looks plastic (but isn't) ; Cameras look odd ; Software experience is a little slow (camera app slow to launch) ; Outshone by other mid-price phones ; Ought to feel more like Moto's non-Mod flagship

There was a time when the Moto X was the business. In the here and now, however, the Moto X4 simply doesn't live up to its predecessors' high-ranking abilities. For times have changed and, as it stands, the X4 is outshone by the not-much-pricier...

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

Moto X4 review


The bar set by past Moto X phones was too high

Plenty of battery ; Sharp camera in the front and back ; Android One for frequent updates

Earlier Moto X models were closer to flagship quality ; Could stand to be a little cheaper ; Camera gimmicks were a wash

The Moto X4 makes it clear that the true successor to the Moto X line is the Moto Z line. It's a mid-range phone with Android One and Google Fi, but otherwise a small upgrade from a Moto G5 Plus or Moto G5S Plus, with a bump in price that sits in the...

Motorola Moto X4 Review: X gonna give it to you?


Is the resurrection of Motorola's X series smartphones a glorious thing, or is the Moto X4 a flawed return? We've spent some serious time with...

Water resistant ; Strong Moto features ; Built-in Alexa

Camera flaws ; Limited performance

Motorola’s X series smartphones are back, with enough of a bang to make us glad for their return.

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 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 is a popular smartphone brand, and continues to bring out cheap and mid-range models for those who don't want to spend top dollar. Enter the Moto X4, a mid-range mobile phone with a few nice features. Is it a smartphone worth considering, or...

Moto X4 Dual Camera Review


We review the Moto X4, a compact smartphone, with dual cameras, one wide-angle and one ultra-wide-angle.

The Moto X4 has some nice features, in a fairly compact smartphone (by today's standards), with a waterproof body, and dual cameras. The ultra wide-angle camera has obvious distortion and image quality issues, but as a second camera, it’s quite good fun.

Moto X4 Review


The Moto X4 excels in a couple of areas and disappoints in a couple more, leaving it a solid handset but one that's only the best at its price for a very specific type of person.

+ Water resistance ; + Good front-facing camera ; + Decent battery life

- Dated design ; - Average camera performance ; - LCD screen

The Moto X4 is a phone of two halves. It’s clad in premium materials and is water resistant, yet big bezels and a camera bump leave it looking slightly old-fashioned.
