Is Moto G4 Plus is expected to be a game changer for Motorola? Motorola has already attained a strong place in the mid-range smartphone market. Motorola’s earlier Moto g models were the top choice of people who wants to buy the best smartphone below 13K and Moto e models were the best choice of people who were willing to have the best smartphone below 7K. But nowadays the competition of smartphone in the mid-range market has drastically increased. Big market players such as Lenovo, Panasonic began to roll out their smartphone product at a relatively decent specification. While other smartphone manufacturers like Xiaomi, Le TV, Oneplus are relatively performing at their best in the smartphone market.

Look at this picture. Yes, the rear camera look is different between Moto g3 and Moto g4. Motorola has been coming up with a slight change in their base design of smartphones. The overall look of the new smartphone gives you the feel of having an improvised Moto G in your hand.

In addition to this, earlier Moto g family smartphones do not have a home button. But this new Moto G4 Plus has home button incorporated with a fingerprint sensor.

Display of Moto G4 Plus

Earlier Moto G display was 720p HD, while Moto G4 Plus is 1080p HD. The ppi of the smartphone is relatively greater in Moto G4 Plus. The normal human eye could not be able to differentiate the pixel per inch (ppi) of the screen when it reaches 300 or more. Therefore a good quality smartphone should contain at least 300 ppi for sharper display. Moto G4 Plus has 401 ppi which are equivalent to iPhone 6 Plus. Therefore Moto G4 Plus stands perfectly ahead in terms of display.

Camera of Moto G4 Plus

The Front camera is 5 MP but the rear camera comes with 16 MP this time in Moto G4 Plus. However, the aperture is same as f/2.0 in rear camera and f/2.2 in front camera. f/2.0 is known as the fast lens in industry. This means that the lens allows maximum light to come into. Thus makes the smartphone best suited to take pictures even in the lesser light.

Performance of Moto G4 Plus

The new Moto G gives out an ultimate user experience to the android lovers. Just as the other Moto G smartphones, this new one also delights the users. The 1.5 GHz Quad-core processor performs relatively well in 3 GB variant than 2 GB. However, there wasn’t much difference observed between the two variants while playing high graphics games like Asphalt.

Battery Life

Yes, the biggest advantage of this new smartphone is turbocharging. You can get up to 6 hours of power in just 15 minutes of charging. The 3000 mAh technically delivers 100 milliamps for 30 hours. But again the battery is non-removable.

  • Full HD display
  • Looks premium
  • Supports USB OTG
