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.
When am increasing the volume in any music app the application stops with this notification "unfortunately system ui has stopped"
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2016is g 4 plus has video call.?Yes it does support video call but you need a application like WhatsApp and IMO.

Heating and throttling and Gaming review:
The phone does not heat on gaming small games. like temple run, subway surf, angry birds etc.
On heavy games. the phone only gets very little warm....very little . compared to a metal phone like xiomi the heat is nothing. its not even heat...it just warm. its plastic so how can it heat. it did not heat.
Gaming and throttlling : No ghost touch while charging. No throttling in camera or gaming over extended use also. Just little warm , which is hardly felt. If you have a cover case you wont even notice. Gaming on full HD not so much fun. Gaming is good on 720 p screens not on 1080 p screens. Personal experience. More ppi means all the games have to played at full graphics or you will notice blur. On 720 p you can even lower graphics. Not on 1080 p full hd screens like this one. So i prefer hd like galaxy J7 not full hd like g4 plus ! and not every game developed comes with high graphics settings....so those games look blur on this 1080p full hd screen !
Is it the best camera phone under 15000 ? among chinese brands yes !!!!!!!!! 100 %
Is it the best camera phone under 15000 among branded phones ? No ! LG G3 stylus is best ! Use it to know it ! But LG g3 stylus has not so good screen so i prefer Moto g4 plus as phone. But camera LG g3 stylus and LG g3 stylus only cost 9000 rs !
Moto g4 plus camera review Details:
Out side shots Good. Bokeh effect is more than any phones . if you like buy this phone. Not everyone loves Bokeh.
semi indoor conditions natural light : Great !. this phone excels in semi indoor shots.
Artificial light indoor : Average. ! Its bright but little grainy
Low light indoor Poor. with/without flash ....its like under 7000 rs phone
Low light outdoor without flash......impossible to take pic its budget phone like all phones, but with flash really good on close up, very bad on long shots.
verdict: i will give this phone no 3 slot on camera. No 1 is lg g3 stylus, No 2 is galaxy j7....the only problem with j7 is not all shots are focused. But the one that are focused are better than g4 plus. So no 3 !
people say this camera is good only because of autofocus and yes its no 1 in focusing and its no 1 when compared to chinese phones like xiomi, le eco etc
Battery review: Bought new Moto g4 plus, battery review after day 1
Turbo charger: Charging from 0 to 90 % done in 45 mins. and 90 to 100 % another 45 mins...total 1.5 hrs full charge with turbo charger provided in the box
Phone on battery time: 10 am yesterday to 10 am today....the battery lasted exactly 24 hours after heavy use
Screen on time: Exactly 6 hrs !
Standby time is unlimited. While i went to bed it was 25 % and when i woke up it still was 25 % so when not in use. the battery last forever ! I love this in phones ! No battery drain.
verdict: This is the minimum battery any phone above 10000 Rs must have. Galaxy J series and ON series has even more better battrie performance than G4 plus. But g4 plus i will say decent and good !
Anonymous, 21 Dec 2016I've had this phone since release day & my camera is excellent so you must have did somethingYes bro... Camera works perfectly... and at this price, it has the best camera..!!!
My problem with G4 Plus is that downloaded pictures and ... randomly disappear from the phone! It also loses Internet connection, both wifi and 3G, too often forcing me to restart wifi/3G! Fingerprint sensor can not turn of the phone, only turn it on!
