My new Moto G4 Plus has a problem of frequent restarts. Tried everything the Customer Care asked to do, took it twice to the Authorised Service and yet the problem continues. They say the battery was replaced and now the display and motherboard too need to be replaced!! They just refuse to replace the whole phone, but would do a local assembly in their Service center?? Unbelievable that this brand is so callous..

Don't buy moto g4 plus phone...I have the phone..It's having Screen flickering complaint. Screen will automatically flicker or work without touching. Done factory reset , updated etc . No use. Any solution please help....
I like the phone, large screen, fast, good camera etc. The only drawback for is that SIM 2 is not 4G compatible, whereas SIM 1 is! Having checked with Vodafone about this and after obtaining a new SIM the phone still reports SIM1 as 4G, SIM2 as 3G. Taking SIM2 out and testing with another phone it works fine as 4G, back in the MotoG4 it's reverts to 3G. So, great phone with dual SIM but only one can be 4G, funny how Motorola doesn't tell you about these little drawbacks.
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2016Settings battery 3 dots top right optimise battery not optimised touch all apps that's itJust great ! Thankyou ! Also one tip is to uninstall every single uneeded app ! Coz Every app needs background battery. after this you will just love this phone !

Anonymous, 20 Dec 2016Dnt buy this phone. My front camera has dust. Phone heat up so fast. Back camera quality worst... moreI guess its all about which unit you get. My phone camera is pretty good compared to many phones i have used this price bracket. The rule is simple if you are indoors use flash. ! if outdoors you can still use flash/or not and see the difference. My phone camera is excellent. Ever since i got it i click 30-50 photos a day. try using "camera mx" its a good camera app !
kumar, 21 Dec 2016camera quality is good but secure for camera lens worst .i buy moto g4 plus mobile last 2 mont... moreCamera lense Support:
use a camera lense skin which is available , google for moto g4 plus skin !
use a rugged heavy duty armor cover for moto g4 plus. or a diary case..."google it"
DIY (do it yourself) cover your case with a removable camera cover. Make it yourself. google (nokia 808 camera cover case / nokia 1020 camera cover case)
Use toothpaste on the lense and rub with cotton for 2- 3 minutes if lense is already scratched
Order a rear body panel for moto g4 plus and replace by unscrewing the old panel.
Hope this helps
Important buying advice:
If you have used NEXUS phone before or want to try STOCK android. Only then buy MOTOROLA phones. NExus phones are very expensive high end phones. MOtorola gives you a similar experience at a lower price. Its like a Develepor phone that you can customise to hell. But its like going to a restraurant and cooking your own meal. LOL. you are paying for self cooking.
Otherwise Samsung and APPLE are no1 in serving cooked phones. Motorola is a raw phone like nexus ,uncooked. You will have to put new gallery app. music app, fav keyboard, fav dialer, fav launcher and fav camera app, file manager. etc.....so much work. So unless you want to cook your phone or like to eat raw salad, dont buy motorola !
manishbansal121, 22 Dec 2016My SOT is max 4 hrs. Any tips?Screen on time is a funny business. Its all about use. it varies really for everyone. Depending on what you use your phone for. When i got 6 hrs....i did everything except gaming high end games. I did play games (under 50 mb games) a lot too and lots of photography and watching you tube....but if you are a high end gamer than sure SOT will vary. on my 2nd day with G4 plus i got exactly 5 and half hour. so i guess over time it will be anywhere between 4 to 5 hours and that is good too you know. I can give you tips on what i did with my previous phones:
I turned off UI animations in settings
I turned off wifi automatic search. made it only manual
try not using the finger print and delete all stored fingerprints. instead use pattern lock. (not sure, just try)
use normal mode in display settings instead of vibrant
try using a black/dark colored wallpaper it helps with less heating of screen. (Personal experience.)
When indoors use brightness about 30 % which is way good for this phone.
try a different launcher/ light weight......i use a s launcher instead of default launcher of moto...because moto launcher has white app drawer which consume battery and also its vertical which i hate. so s launcher is good.
Oh and most important disable moto wake screen app. with peek notifactions. it is annoying ! and consumes battery.
hope all this helps
Bought Moto G4 Plus (32 GB) this November.
What i like...
Good Network absorption while using Jio. I found far better than many Xioami Device.( Tested Xiaomi Mi3i,Mi3,Redmi phones) I was able to browse internet inside the room using G4 plus which was not in the case using many other phones. I have also Compared with Jio MiFi device Moto G4 Plus was the winner. Jio LYF phones have similar network absorption capability.
SD card separate slot:For long run separate Slot for SD card is required.(That is why i didn't go for Redmi Note 3 or Nubia Z11 mini)
Battery, I was able to use 9 hours on one full charge with screen ON time more than 4 hours ,with WiFi and Jio Networks heavy usage.It is good enough, as using handset more than 6 hours injuries to health itself.
Finger print sensor,it is placed correctly at the bottom (at least for me) so that I can unlock the device without lifting the device.(In Nought Update screen OFF also possible using Finger print sensor)
Camera: it just okay.I feel colour reproduction need some improvement.
Till now didn't get any single scratch on my camera lens.(Using KAPAVERA back cover from the day first, Recommend)
Display:Good but not great.
Speakers: As it is front facing, I found useful while watching videos without headset.
Software: Fast and pure android experience.
Design: Worst Design in Moto Series.
Heating: Very light heating while charging(Tolerable). I didn't notice any heating issues while normal browsing or watching videos.
No display related issues. I think this is already fixed by Motorola in new batches.
