Thank you again, it was enough a eye filter for the ghost screen problem, unbelievable

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.

Dual SIM? Says who? the one i have just received from the UK Amazon is not dual SIM.
Bought this phone, got what I should expect for about $200. Crashes like 3 times every day and has overheating issues.

I am using the Sim card from my Verizon HTC 1 M 8. I purchased the G4 directly from Motorola / Lenovo when the touch screen stopped working on my HTC 1 M8. No regrets.

If the phone is unlocked, it can probably be used on GSM carriers such as ATT, Sprint, T Mobile or ones that use their networks such as Consumer Cellular.
I bought a Motorola g4 while in Spain, and got a local plan sim card for a month. They told me that I could use the phone in the US with a new sim card.
Back in the USA I went to Verizon and they told me that the phone would not accept a US sim card.
Were they giving me a bunch of BS or is that true?

My limited music would be off cd or youtube.
