I've bought mine for 200 dollars and it's price is the same even after three years. Great phone for everyday use. Performance is good. Battery life is great. Camera is average. It is made of plastic but strong one. Very durable. I was about to sell it and buy new phone but decided to keep for now and just ordered new case. Overall if you aren't heavy gamer and play just some lightweight games it is great phone for you.
Highly underrated mobile is Moto G4 play.
Moto should have updated it to at least Oreo.
I didn't use this one for long time, but it was a great experience.
However, one can still update this one to latest iteration by installing custom rom.
I have updated my Moto G3 and G3Turbo with pixel experience rom. It may go on for at least a year or so.
Pie version for same is available for G4 play.
Guys, who u have updated G4 Play to official 7.1.1 Nougat, can u inform me about the camera performance & battery backup on nougat? Is the camera & battery performance remain similar to Marshmallow or decreased? And are you facing any other issue after updating to official Nougat?
Not only that the GPS is bad, also it doesn't have compass so if you are kinda lost and need to walk not very useful.
Everything else fine.
after using for 18 months i sold it for rs2500 because of gps issue(now i'm a frequent traveller).or else no issue at all, the charging and draining of battery gets 6 out of 5 , purely impressive...
Ghost, 29 Nov 2018My Moto G4 play can't install security update...i have tried many times.Do you get an error message?
Good phone.No problem.Phone Charger is mind blowing,within 30 min phone battery will reach 100 percent.
I can relate about the GPS, in outdoor environments with no cell range is unusable, I've seen it offering precision of less than 2.5km in a mountain top with (obviously) clear view of the sky. Nonetheless in urban environments using network location mechanisms it is capable of adequate location.

Jimmy, 14 Aug 2018DISSAPOINTED! My motorola XT1602 always show error "NO GPS" while using waze or google maps... moreGPS issues are most likely hardware-related, or unlikely low-level firmware-related, and there has been very little success at getting it to work.
The Moto G4 Play is an absolutely solid phone for $100. I own the XT1607, and it works great as my daily driver. However, on the XT1607 and a few other variants, THE GPS DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. This is 100% due to crappy hardware, or extremely low-level firmware. There has been very little luck on getting the GPS to work. If you buy this phone, make sure you keep your receipt, because it may have a bad GPS. Also, I'd recommend getting the phone unlocked, because only some variants have Android 7.1. Mine never got it, so I was stuck on 6 until I flashed Lineage.
TL;DR This is a very solid phone for it's price. The GPS doesn't work at all on some variants, so keep your receipt. Some variants also never got Android 7.1, so make sure you get an unlocked phone if you're not cool with Marshmallow.
Nice phone for the price. Actually on Android 7.1.1.
Pros: decent casual camera for daylight, battery life, time of charge without quick charge, price, removable battery, nice screen IPS (wide angle, colours), clean Android.
Cons: low brightness screen under the sun, speaker low volume and low bass. Low volume jack 3.5mm, SD410 clockdown to 1.2 and not 1.4 like moto g3 and a bit bug that is a flick in the screen 2-3 per day.
This comment is ____, 27 Oct 2018Then why is Samsung still a "top brand"There is a reason to it.
Indians think that company should have service center available. Due to its wide range of products, Samsung is able to maintain its service centres for phones. Due to this Indian people feel that it is a good point to buy Samsung. This one factor is making huge impact on market share.
Now with Xiaomi opening up its stores and service centres across the country, coupled with affordable prices, Xiaomi is fast getting popular with Indian market.
