Used this phone for a year.
Really amazing battery life, it's really efficient.
Resistant to water drops.
Camera is average but very decent camera.
Everything else is approved by me, for a normal user, really smooth never freezes for me.
GPS is pretty bad and on top of it it has no compass.
No Nougat update yet, they not even gave a ETA. And other OTA Updates(security and misc) comes always late.. They promised smooth updates for all the G4's but it wasn't the case, except in Plus I think. Reason I'm changing this phone, I just bought it because it was going to get Nougat but we're almost in 2018 and not even a ETA yet.
Can use custom roms for Nougat though, but stock has by far best battery life IMO.
GPS in G4 PLAy is crap. Senior who works and needs to use public transportation so have a GPS when attempting to find the work sites for those days is critical. Can rides 2-3 BUSES/TRAINS/TROLLEYS AND AN HOUR LATER and 10+ miles from the last job have a Grey Dot. With enemies like companies like Motorola and the software "TURKEYS' who writ e the crap who needs enemies

Performance is smooth. No lag. Screen quality is great. Battery life is excellent. If you aren't gamer it will survive two or three days. Camera quality is good enough. Overall very good phone with no bloatware.

Anonymous, 06 Oct 2017True. They don't want to update it.I am very happy with the phone, except the nougat update as of now is a lie
I have this phone for over a year and still waiting for nougat update. Microphone is pathetic.The other person can't hear me clearly. I do not recommend anyone to buy this phone.
AnonD-621819, 20 Aug 2017Because the device containing sd series 410 or below are not compatible for running nougatWRONG.
Lineage OS is already out with Ver. 14.1 (based on Android 7.1.1) for Moto G Play. So, Snapdragon 410 in not the issue. They just don't want to spend the resources on a budget phone.

Kk, 21 Aug 2017Do u face any gps issues? Like searching for gps while using mapsYes, every time I turn on Location (even from the swipe down Quick Settings) I have to go in through Settings, Location, and switch from High Accuracy to Device Only, as H-A is the default when toggling on Location. Otherwise I can't get a GPS lock. Is there a way to default to Device Only but still disable Location when I want to? (I'm on Verizon with stock device)
