I have the Moto XT1644 G4 Plus (4th Gen), and I love this phone so much, but it keeps crashing and it is annoying the hell out of me. Can someone please tell me what I can do to fix it, please?
AndyWalsall GB, 15 Sep 2017Is Lenovo Motorola going to provide Android O Update for Moto G4 or are they going to stab use... moreAndroid O on the G4?? Don't hold your breath. I'm still praying for Nougat on Moto X Pure (which has been promised for close to a year)... Anyways, can't really complain, works good on Marshmallow...
Is Lenovo Motorola going to provide Android O Update for Moto G4 or are they going to stab users in the back as they want to sell Moto G5?
I have the G4 since early 2017 and I have to say that it is exceeding any expectations. Great camera, both front and back, actually does better pictures than my accidentally killed Samsung S6. Awesome video with whole screen focus. Great battery life. Awesome ultrabright screen totally visible in sunlight.
Anonymous, 11 Aug 2017Chinese phone easily meet your need but do you know that with price tag $300 they give $80 inc... moreMoto X Pure isn't officially released in the UK. Besides it's an older phone. And the Moto G5 phones have no compass on them so using Google Maps and geo location will be a bit iffy and slow and for some (or most of us) that is vital and a deal breaker.
After 1 year od use:
Positives: 1. performance of both cameras in day conditions, 2. sound, 3. display size, brightness, vividness and contrast on a sunny day, 4. Overal good software/hardware performance even when having multiple accounts installed, its pretty fast, 5. Hand gestures, 6. good reception & fast internet, 7. Pretty good resistance against scratches and falls.
Negatives: 1. screen-burn-in/image-retention issue (e.g. you close the app that uses keyboard, but you can still see some traces of that app and keyboard left on the home screen, resting phone over-night or restart fixes the issue), 2. back camera-lense-coating scratches (I had to replace it), 3. bad camera performance in low-light conditions, 4. Slow charging w/o buying extra fast charger, really slow (e.g. Car navigation drains battery way faster than you can charge it with car charger, even when display brightness is set to very low. Same thing happens with regular home-charger), 5. Fast battery draining (sometimes I get maximum 10 hours of easy use, sometimes just 5-6 of normal use), 6. Very rare split-screen issues (resting a phone a couple of minutes on stand-by fixes the issue), 7. no led notifications
Overal: It's ok!
I am quite fedup with Moto G4, during my visit to USA I have taken pictures and transfer these photos to Pendrive , here in India photos taken by moto G4 not displayed on Sony Bravia saying " Playback not available", while as photos taken by apple phone are displayed well....NO HELP...is available...

If you use proper software you find out motorola using censor like bosch. Asahi kasei and other branded censor but chinese phone give you crap one. Try moto Xpure (I tried camera better than iphone 6) or G5plus or g5plus

frosword, 03 Aug 2017Have you thought about Oneplus phones?I did. But due to financial constraints I am forced to look the other way i.e. Chinese phones (Doogee, Umidigi, Elefone, etc.) and much older phones like the Nexus 5X (so-so performance, weak speakers output, etc.), Xperia X (small screen for my needs but decent/so-so performer).
My Moto G4 screen has cracked broken after it fell face first flat on the pavement. The race is on to find a replacement ASAP. As much as I want the new G5S phone it STILL lacks a compass ( a necessity for me), no USB Type-C, no water resistance powers. I need a phone with the very "basic' of requirements as follows:
1. Compass/e-compass &/or magnetometer
2. USB Type-C (not compulsary)
3. 4.7" screen & above (preferably 5.1" & above)
4. Faster Cat-6 4G LTE speeds
5. A speaker with a loudness of 75db or above
6. Screen brightness of 500nits & above
7. 3GB RAM or above
8. Cameras which takes natural-looking photo, great dynamic range, contrast, less overexposed photos and and great in low-light
9. Under £300 or Â€300.
I'm open to suggestions from some Chines phones.

Nadalion, 27 Jul 2017What are the main features you want your mobileto have? The same as the Moto G4 or G5 Plus 5.2" screen & above) but with a compass (as i use Google Maps everyday for work purposes), a faster Cat-6 4G LTE, a front or down-firing speakers with 75db minimum loudness (the very least), a 3000mAh battery (the very least) for true all-day use, excellent sunlight readability ( AMOLED? Super LCD?) and one which will survive in the odd rain or accidental drop in the sink (advanced nano coating? basic IP-rating?).
Chelinh5, 04 Jul 2017My phone keeps flickering. Anyone knows why?Go to settings >> More Tab >> About device.
-Find "Build number" and click 6 times fast on it.
-You will then get the message saying: "You are now a developer"
-Come back to Home Screen, and then go back to Settings >> More Tab >> Now you will -see the "Developer Options"
-Now go to Developer options >> Drawing Section or Rendering Section >> Find "Turn off hardware overlays" or "disable hardware overlays" >> This will force the phone to always use GPU for screen compositing
