Is the glass coating at the back delicate.? I've heard reviews about rear glass getting easily shattered. Should I buy X4 or wait for moto g6.?
Just bought 1 week back. Stock Android experience. Smooth and fluidic !!!! Really satisfied..
Motorola phones are of good quality. And now the camera too is improving !! + IP 68. U should go with this. Great value for what you pay

Put some 50-60 extra cash and take something that fits to your needs.

But my priorities is a true "day & a half" battery life (similar to my Galaxy A5 2017 or my old G4 Plus), water resistance (similar to my old Xperia XZ & A5 2017), a camera that performs and take photos similar to a Moto G4 Plus, Xperia XZ or iPhone 6S (at a slightly cheaper package) and good RAM/memory management similar to an iPhone or OnePlus.

My advice is to look at galaxy s7 too. He have a much better camera and now can find it at similar praise. Other option is one plus 5, which also have a top notch camera. Anyway, you can check this review if you want. Seems accurate and exhaustively.
Like i said, for person's like me, who are not that camera dependent and demanding, phone works just great. Have Nikon D3300 in the end, which doing great job for moments that require more quality photos.So wish you luck with your choise and Happy New Year!

Of all the videos I have seen on Youtube (so far) the X4's camera is unconvincing vs the G5 family. The colours/sharpness/dynamic range/contrast seem "off" and "inaccurate" and doesn't represent the real world. And again, no mention of any kind of stabilization even on 1080p/30fps (or 60fps) as that for me is an absolute imprtance; 4K is a good choice but having no 4K TV and no stabilization in 4K then i'm not bothered.

Im not exactly a camera type user, but you can find many videos about camera quality. For me, like totally enthusiast, quality and performance are good enough.My main complaint is depth mode and lack of eis on 4K video recording. Edge detection on depth mode is absolutely poor. 4K video is good but very shaky. Cant say about night pictures bcoz didn't take much. But again, lack of ois will take effect of the focus and details, I think. But again... Search on youtube and you'll find much detailed reviews.
kubar, 30 Dec 2017I mean after few camera software updates, now shutter speed is better than bfor.
Watter proo... moreI don't take plenty (i.e. thousands of photos) or watch Youtube all day. And I don't even have Facebook (which is the numero uno battery drain of all time) and I'm quite knowledgeable with Android in saving battery life so i think I will know how to squeeze enough juice out of that 3000mAh battery.
But do you mean at the end of the day (say 9pm) you would still have about 20-30% left in the tank?
That's good if the shutter speed is faster now. But I want to know about the camera quality and performance in general. How about telling us about low light shots? Overexposure on bright backgrounds or surroundings? Any purple/orange fringing when on night or on direct light? Is there resolved detail i.e. the corners and backgrounds subjects appear as sharp and slightly blurred out? Are the photos tend to be on warmer or cooler side? Is the actual photo close to what you actually see - is it contrasty or bland in colour?
It would be great to know these things.
Gino76, 30 Dec 2017What do you exactly mean by camera working "better now"? Care to elaborate more please.

Watter proof is like it should be. No problem at all. Wash it few times already. No damage.
Apps opens instantly. No lag etc.
For battery... All day without any problems for me. I didn't play games. Facebook, Youtube, Google plus, Instagram, Browser, Camera. Plug in to charger most of the time on 20-25% Battery life is very good.

Speakers any loud/louder than the G5 phones?
Water resistant coating working well? No internal water damage so far when it got wet?
Do apps load instantly or almost instantly?
Battery life lasts the whole day the very least?

I'm sure after oreo they will improve even more. Battery life is awesome. Fast charging is great. Battery backup is great. Ram management is one of the things that can be improved. For example, i have installed 82-86 apps, most used fb, viber, chrome, youtube, google plus and instagram, in background and have around 1,0-1,3gb free ram constantly. I feel low ram state once when put a rainpaper live wallpaper. Then ram was around 600-700mb free. For me phone works well. Mine is 64/4gb. System storage is little bit more. Use around 16.44gb which is too much i think. Overall phone is solid.
I just played with Alexa a little. Not sure if I'll ever use it. "OK Google" is so much better. I will try the Moto voice but not sure it has much to offer.
Homer-Simpson, 29 Dec 2017Hi, what is the best way to update to 8.0 Oreo? By OTA or by computer? How long does take ov... moreI update via my wi-fi directly to the phone. The time it takes depends on your network speed. Direct to my phone doesn't take long on my 350Mb/s wi-fi.
What's attracting me to this phone is the seemingly A1 hardware and specs. But I'm also hearing very negative reviews such as an unoptimized software especially in the camera, battery life, memory management departments.
Between this and the G5Plus (or G5S) which one is better in those departments
