soomro, 20 Sep 2020old phone r good but their battery backup is very short you have to charge it twice a day Why not ... Nowadays, I charge 3 times a day ... reason is , screen always on with hotspot and internet active.... Using for online classes can get upto 5 hr display time....But still the original battery is great.... Haven't changed in this 3+ years.....I also can get a full day charge....if I used only for calls, random whatsapping and snapping....2800 maH is doing its perfect job
I got this through Amazon prime, so it was about 100 bucks after my IPhone 6 suddenly died for good. It honestly was pretty good for the price point. I really loved the size and it was pretty fluid in functionality.

But old phones are not like that.....They are made for excellence....Still those Good old souls are living like my Motorola G4 play....... That may be G9 plus or one plus 9, just go and settle somewhere.....Here is where quality lives not quantity....G4 play ♥️
Hanifishaq, 13 Jun 2020I agree bro best mobile Yeah...Bro ...Now its three years😍😍 ... Feel like never gonna change this Beast..... Can't compare this phone with today's fake quality phones even Moto's.....Most of the brands ruined the quality of their phones.... Don't sell such old phones like G,G2,G3,G4 variants...... Because you are not going to get that quality in recent Phones....2020 phones are like use and throw....

Still for a safe practise, don't keep it plugged too often. Have an app that notifies you when the charge reaches 80 - 90%, and also when it falls to 20%. It's just a matter of turning on/off the switch.
Is a Moto G4 Play suitable for tethering when leaving it plugged into the mains or does this cause battery problems?
I've had a Moto G4 Play for about 4 years, but recently I noticed the back cover of the phone was sticking out. When I removed the back cover, I could see that the battery had swelled up and become bigger. From what I've read, phones have a charging circuit that prevents the battery from being overchaged. So is this just a case of the battery has become old and not due to leaving the phone plugged in?
vtptt-2017, 03 Sep 2020For a budget phone that was released over four years ago in 2016, it is still being used by me... moreOne more thing to add. Gaming is okay for the phone. With 2Gb ram I can easily play Need For Speed: Most Wanted without any lag.
For a budget phone that was released over four years ago in 2016, it is still being used by me for daily tasks (almost using it like a laptop). Performance is still top notch. Hardly any lagging (considering that I regularly clear any excess cache and ram). Also, love that option of removing the battery with a new one if it goes bad. Fast charging is always there..
I personally have two of them, one in Marshmallow and the other in Nougat. I will keep using this device indefinitely until it really starts to lag.. :)
I have owned this phone for a few years now. It's pretty much unbreakable. Had to replace the battery once. However, my phone service provider recently upgraded their service and now my phone is incompatible. Sooooo disappointed because I really love this phone!
hello,i personally own this phone n i m using it from 3 years and this is the best phone under 30,000 pkr..i literally love this phone
Tom, 05 Feb 2020No, it doesn't support 4G+ (2CA) Update it and see the magic 4g
Anonymous, 02 Dec 2019Does the Moto G4 Play have 4G+ if the network supports it?I own this phone, and on Verizon Wireless I have 4g LTE.

Even if this nice phone is able to recognize 256gb micro sd cards, they can become very unstable, in other words, they appear to be "unmounted" from time to time if you use lets say a really really large collection of pictures or mp3's like myself. If you check websites around you will see they list 128gb as maximum capacity micro sd recognition for the Moto G4 Play, so recommendation with this model is to use micro sd cards up to 128gb, bigger capacity cards (256gb) could be risky
