Anonymous, 14 Jun 2016For day to day usage, there are more important aspects than a processor. Using a 650 instead o... moreIt maybe faster if compare to similarly specced phone, but please don't make your assumption this phone will be much better than phone equipped with SD650.
Phone on Android 5.1 doesn't means they are inferior, they may still perform better or worse than this Moto G4 Plus, but won't has big deal that cause you get into serious stability issue.
Even phone with just Android 4.4.2 still perform very well.
More updates also doesn't means they are marginally better.
There are way more alternative out there, with the similar pricing, that are more well equipped than this Motorola G4 Plus.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2016i want buy moto g4 tell me good or badBuy it if you think it is worth it.
But you has to set your mindset right, this is a low midrange phone that's is not going to be better than those more high end phone.
More RAM doesn't make the phone more faster, but faster processor does make very obvious impact on performance.
That's why there are people mentioning the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro with SD650 processor, Vivo V3Max with SD652 processor, or comparable pricing phone like Oneplus 2.
Yes, it's camera maybe better, but it doesn't out from that midrange boundary, not miles better than other midrange phone. Build quality is also a very subjective matter too, you got to hold in your hand yourself before judging on it's build quality.
Then on overall usage, only those people who has use it on day to day basis can know it's true performance, rather than referring it's spec on paper.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2016I don't think it will be way better than Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 in term of build quality.
I wil... moreFor day to day usage, there are more important aspects than a processor. Using a 650 instead of 617 wont give any boost in day to day usage.
For day to day usage, more important is software optimization, eMMc (storage) read and write speed, and RAM size and speed.
For example a Moto G3, which has a slower processor than Xperia M4, had a faster day to day usage performance. In gaming it was the other way around.
Also, Xiaomi or Vivo are no way comparable to Motorola in updates. According to gsmarena, Xiaomi Redmi note 3 is still stuck in 5.1.1. It won't probably get 6.0, let alone Android N and O.
zoo zoo, 13 Jun 2016Go for g4 plus bcz u get to use 2 sims n sd card too its d advantage
If u r thinking of zuk ... moreSo, you are saying phone without Micro SD slot cannot be formatted?
Because it will format everything? How about Motorola owns Nexus 6?
Even if the phone has virus, you still can use OTG to copy out all your stuff before formatting. Or, you can connect to a PC to backup all your stuff before formatting.
In a more modern way, use all those expensive cloud service for backup.
Backup everything before formatting is the right way to do, even if the phone has Micro SD slot, or don't has it, there are still plenty of way to do backup. Get your fact right before writing anything with hatres.
I own a 32GB, 3GB RAM version of Moto G4 plus. It's becoming very hot when I use apps like camera/torch which are basic applications of a smartphone. Even it reached as high as 45 degree Celcius while using these apps. Also while charging using the Turbocharger, you'll get afraid that the phone is going to blown off, the temperature increases very fast & stabilises around 44 degree Celcius for some time & then gradually reduces to normal temperature after battery % increases above 70. Also, the fingerprint sensor/phone doesn't recognize any of the fingerprints for some fraction of time even after multiple attempts.
The upper half of my moto g4 plus screen is less brighter than lower half and is very much visible in white background.Is this a common issue or it is only me who is facing this issue.
Nandha, 10 Jun 2016I am confused about which I need to buy whether moto g4 plus or lenovo zuk z1 plzzzz suggest me????Go for g4 plus bcz u get to use 2 sims n sd card too its d advantage
If u r thinking of zuk it has 64gb internal storage n if ur cell has virus n u want to format then u will b in problem
AMAN GOYAL, 13 Jun 2016who said it has poor build quality, it is far far better than redmi note 3 ... and lack of com... moreI don't think it will be way better than Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 in term of build quality.
I will said they are comparable, the new Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 resemble more like a HTC aluminum phone rather than a plasticky phone, you should hold them side by side before giving judgement where this Moto G4 Plus is tons better.
And also quite contrary, Xiaomi phone doesn't has the China feel, I got used some of their latter phone, which is global version, with English manual and english language UI, and they are not as bad, even the lack of apps drawer is not a problem for me.
On the other side, I feel Motorola phone now is more "China" than other China phone when I hold their G, G2, and G3 smartphone.
And also, do remember now Motorola is owned by Lenovo, another China phone maker.
Lenovo phones are some of the worst smartphone maker in build quality and updates.
Let's hope Motorola not following what Lenovo has done to their own smartphones.
The processor on the G4 is indeed lower end, and there won't be any significant improvement in performance compared to SD650 or SD652 processor, despite of promising software upgrade that you even can't guarantee, so don't talk about it if it is just your feeling on Motorola.
Xiaomi phone also get many frequent updates to improve their phone's stability and performance too, not just Motorola is doing so.
Then, pricing alone, Motorola can't beat Xiaomi. And their phone's quality actually is not bad (not until I have hold one in my hand), at least Xiaomi doesn't sell as expensive as the pretentious high end Motorola.
So, on overall value, Xiaomi still win over Motorola. I will pick a SD650 version Redmi Note 3 anytime over this Motorola G4 Plus. At the middle, there is also Vivo V3Max, that use SD652 processor, which also pique more interest from me than this Moto G4 Plus.
I emphasize more on processor as processor will be the one affect the most on overall performance of smartphone on day to day usage, regardless of their price.
There are choices for everyone, please don't act like iPhone iSheep follower that like to condemn all other Android smartphone as rubbish.
Saurabh Joshi, 13 Jun 2016Lenovo Zuk Z1 or Moto G4 plusabsoulatley zuk z1 is better. with better battery and 64gb storage.
arun jacob, 13 Jun 2016any one please replay meG4+ is awasome fon but little bit heating problem due to software problem not a hardware problem and which can be eliminate after some updates by motorola ..... da best manufacturer of mobiles.

Bright, big screen
Motorola Moto G4 Pl... moreMost of the Pros you mentioned are just a spec list of the phone -_-
All phones have a multi touch display, it's a requirement for Android lol.
Quad core 1.5 GHz A53 and 1.2 GHz A53 aren't a pro at all. People wanted something like Snapdragon 650, or at least a Snapdragon 625. According to Android Central and other reviews, The Snapdragon 617 feels overworked

Compass is actually very useful for those travelling. I do use compass more than my phone's camera.
