Where does one store important data on this phone? In other phones we have memo
Does it support slow motion video recording? Cuz all the members of the moto family has it
Sag, 07 Oct 2016Is it better than E3power ? E3 power has some problems ...I'd personally prefer the moto g4 play over e3 power because of the processor. My brother had bought the e3 power from flipkart and I had a chance to use it. It does heat up during calls. But not too much. My brother is a light user and uses the phone for chatting browsing and calls only. Battery lasted for more than one day on WiFi.
The updates will roll out faster on the e3 power and the battery life is pretty good compared to the g4 play. But in the long run, for multitasking and for playing light games I feel g4 play is the best choice. Also,the battery life of g4 play is not so bad either. If you are a light user who wants to save some money and prefer the battery, then you can go for the e3 power as it is priced a bit lower than the g4 play.
I won't recommend playing heavy games on these two phones because of the processors and the low clock speed when compared to the other phones in the same price range.
Hope this helps you
Fsk, 05 Oct 2016Pls tell friends who are using this phone -battery service, is it otg support? Has its heatin... moreBattery(2800mah removable battery) lasts for more than a day on using WiFi or 3g network for me. Doesn't heat up a lot. Slight heating is there when I used 3g network for more than 3-4 hours(especially during IMO video calls, watching videos) and also during the charging. That's normal for every phone thses days and as for heating up during charging, it is turbo charging so it will heat up. My suggestion would be not to use the phone during charging. I am not a gamer but considering the fact that the processor used on the phone is a bit old, it won't perform smoothly with the heavy games. And the updates won't be available faster like the other moto phones(android N won't be available easily).
Camera clarity is fine. Front cam is 5mp, not so great but okay for the selfies and as for the main camera 8mp is okay. Can't say it is great. But it is okay. If you are a camera lover, don't go for this one.
Stock android as you know. So there won't be any unwanted apps which we need to uninstall.
Build quality I'd not too great but it is not too bad either.
Supports otg, sound quality is okay. No finger print technology.
Articles in the box - moto earphones(average quality, better use some other branded earphones if you are a music lover), battery, the handset, turbo charger with the USB cable, the guide booklet.
Also, this is a budget phone under 9k. We can't expect more at this price. Also, there's the moto e power on flipkart at a slightly lesser price (around 7-8k). It has a good but it uses a mediatek processor so it is your choice in the end. Whether you prefer the better snapdragon processor(even though it is a bit old) on the moto g4 play or the greater battery life of the moto e3 power.
If you have any further questions, you can reply. I will surely reply. Hope this review helps you with your purchase.

Karthik, 02 Oct 2016Plz tell me otg support or no in moto g 4 playit is available but again bad , ur video files dont show up in mx player
u have to use it as an external device and play individual files
(bad as asus was better in this dept) it shows all d files in mx player and also the usb drive as a storeage unit apart from phone and micro sd
the whole package is really good , audio good both speaker and wired, video good , no heating issues at all even after prolonged usage, charge time 1.50 hrs 0-full,
cons : The camera is no where good , pathetic actually dont know if it is my phone problem or not but d pics r very average , (zenfone 5 camera atleast twice better than this phone) , no manual options also , dunno if it can b solved by some update or not
otherwise the phone is really good no heat, lag etc and damn fast actually and also getting android 7 update on d same is a icing on d cake.
google now launcher ok , but the mic sensitivity is low so ok google is a pain actually my xolo black 1x in d next room responds when i m speaking to this phone strange but true

Jose, 28 Sep 2016I bought motog4play in amazon . In bookmark there another gmail accout was opened, no sticker ... moreAmazon sells refurbished phones apart from new ones. These phones cost lesser than new ones. It is clearly mentioned if it is a refurbished unit.
It seems by mistake you have bought a refurbished piece.
