My partner and I both have Moto G4 supplied by Carphone Warehouse in UK.
Were both on Android Nougat with no battery issues as far as we can tell. Phone can be charged on morning and be used for instant to 9.40pm and it's now at 73% with 1 day 10 hours left on the battery.
Pretty good phone if one likes stock android. Only problem i have compared to other phones is poor voice quality of speaker. What i especially like in this compared to gf's huawei P9 lite is faster and (way) more reliable gps.
Now after a year of use battery life seems bit worse than it was but i usually end up replacing battery once per 1½ years with my smartphones, so that seems normal.

yes, i experience that too
I have a Moto G4 purchased back in July of 2016 and everything was working great. It had good battery life and responded pretty well. But, as soon as I updated to Android 7.0, that's when my battery life declined quickly to the point where I was dependent on carrying a charger to wherever I went. Also, the phone now reboots itself randomly. The phone also shuts down in mid conversation with someone. This is unacceptable. Now, July 4, 2017, I need a new phone to function.

Love this phone but is anyone having battery drain probs after the nougat 7.0 update, my battery has gone from 100% to 59% since 8am this morning.

Thank you again, it was enough a eye filter for the ghost screen problem, unbelievable
anonymous, 21 Jun 2017go for z3Z3? Despite no Nougat update? Despite photo noise/blurriness when zoomed in? etc.

I have the screen ghost image problem too though, started 2 months after purchase, possibly triggered by nougat update (which is otherwise awesome). I don't want to send it back and risk getting worse problems so have found a solution- go on playstore and download the EYE FILTER app. Set the colour to black at 4%. Leave it in always. It won't drain the battery and the black overlay will not make the screen look weird. In fact it adds a classy gloss. Taking the edge off the white stops the ghosting. This is a cracking phone, best in its class the price.
I ran a short survey on Twitter asking people what old flagship/affordable last-gen phone would they get for a balance of true all-day battery, water-resistance, a great (not just good) camera & above average performance. My choices were Moto G4, Xperia Z3 & something else. People chose the Z3. Would u guys agree despite being a few years old, noisy photos when zoomed in and guaranteed no Nougat update?
Just bought this phone for £139 pound and wow what a cracking phone it is, powerful, fast and plenty of room, and I've just put a 128gb SD card in, i was without a phone for weeks so was looking for my next one, checking YouTube, latest reviews etc and come across this one and loads of different reviews were great so I took the plunge. I nearly bought a Samsung s6 and glad I did t spend all the money for one.
If you want a powerpacked phone for under £200 then the Moto g4 is certainly worth it.
Well done Lenovo/motorola
I bought this phone for $220 last year thinking it would be a nice upgrade from my Samsung Galaxy 4.1 After all it had stellar reviws. It was fine for a few months then the screen started blinking and changing without any prompting. It freezes constantly and frequently has difficulty turning on/off. I have done a factory reset and upgraded to Android 7 thinking that would solve the problem. It just made it worse.
I came to the basic G4 from a Samsung S7 (the basic $700 one). I was unimpressed with the S7. The screen was too sensitive and it over heated in a refrigerator. I ride a motorcycle, the S7 fell out at 70mph and went under a semi truck. I disliked it so much I was a little relieved.
So, I ordered a G4 directly from Motorola. My verizon store wanted to sell me them most costly of the 4 phones they had on the shelf. No.
Motorola promised an engraving, custom color, and custom welcome. They got the color right and forgot the rest.
It also took 2 weeks to arrive. I could have bought the phone from Best Buy same day/same price if I wanted black.
It was easy to convert to Verizon. Carefully insert SIM Card and you can call. Contacts were not saved from the S7 on the SIM Card. Verizon's bad.
I also had a spare, new 64gb card and boosted my storage to 70gb.
First impressions. No screen issues. Works like a charm. Does not overheat. No lag. No sticking. Bigger screen than the S7 basic. Battery can be replaced. SIM Cards can be swapped easy. This is a better phone than the S7. Better design, better ergos. It does not try to hide the Android OS in Motorola apps and themes. It has style.
The G4 basic $200 is better than the S7 $700 of a year and half ago.
I'll upgrade Motorola to the next Droid, X, Z, or next thing when time comes. Samsungs suck and Iphones (had one, I5... boring as borax) are bland.
