The moto x4 is a HUGE disappointment imo.
No Amoled - or at least they could have used a good lcd.
No SD660 - while the 630 is adequate, it shouldn't be on a phone this expensive.
Priced too high - nearly the same as a g5 plus which is half the price.
One good camera with ois would have been better than 2 mediocre ones.
Unsymmetrical top and bottom chin - why is bottom one smaller?
Glass back is unnecessary(and fragile) considering it has no wireless charging.
Hopefully lenovo doesn't screw up the the 2018 g6 variants like they did the x4...
Salt, 05 Dec 2017The back looks like a pig's snout. hahah it really does.
but for the black model it looks ok (pig snout hardly visible)
Just read htc u11 life, x4 has quick charge, metal frame, abit better camera & audio. Motorola is center of innovation at engineers class room, no wonder seen a lot in hands electrical engineers or IT.
Cons; Htc life has an oreo.
Themorabox, 03 Dec 2017Something everyone's missing when comparing this one vs MI A1 is that in Performance the X4 ki... moreXiaomi A1 has super high sar rating it can fry your brain (it even exceeds the EU / USA sar limits so not sure why this can be sold over here; even with shipping overseas)
They are a cheap brand, offering high specs and nice design but they have other flaws like the one above; as well as screens that crack super easily and other design issue's we probably don't know about below the service.
If u trust xiaomi and have had good experiences with them thats good for you,
but i wouldn't trust them and their businessmodel at all...
Something everyone's missing when comparing this one vs MI A1 is that in Performance the X4 kills the MI A1.
Even tough the MI A1 has SD625 and Adreno 506, when this phone has SD630 and Adreno 508, that little pump in the Adreno/SnapDragon makes this phone just great in graphics (refer to Performance tab in this review).
But, the difference in price against the MI A1 is way too much even with that good performance... so, not sure if it's worth it.
Unless you're going all in for Graphics performance and don't mind the difference in price this one is the way to go.
Too many companies are producing an over variety of mid range phones in here with miniscule differences that why bother. Financially it bites into resources for no good reason in the thought that slight model adjustment will have a surge in saturated sales market. One just stitches off. Samsung is classic here , it is a basket case of multiple numbers after the same model that you just can't be bothered deciphering each basically looks the same. As do other companies. Not an ideal business model to stay relevant. I am not an apple buyer but their business model is sound of limited choice but enough choice.
TheLostWanderer, 02 Dec 2017That phone is just plain ugly... I would personally never buy it simply because it looks hideous...the back round thing on camera is a bit ugly i admit,
and glass on the back is dumb investment...
if u put a thin back case around it. for. protection
or a book case then the ugly round camera thing isnt visible.
if u dont use protection around round phone then u must be rich.
but this phone is the best quality/specifications/looks/feel on market right now for the price... which will get security and android updates for.a reasonable time to come.
there is just no competition right now. unless u see the cheap incredibly high SAR xiaomi with lcd screens that crack way too easily as an alternative.
That phone is just plain ugly... I would personally never buy it simply because it looks hideous...
Nigel De jong, 02 Dec 2017Those bezels though :( would never buy for that alone. When will they learn?Motorola always made tough devices. Those bezels are there to protect the internal screen. There's more chance of you breaking your lcd when you drop your bezeless phone. On this one only the glass will crack probably, the lcd will stay intact (depending on the fall).
RamsayBolton, 30 Nov 2017Dumb or what?
The Mi A1 is an Android One device and will receive updates directly from Google.Actually no...
Android one makes it easier to make those updates by phone maker, so updates comes From manufacturer...

'Panorama is flawless'??? ohk. Then , the car appearing in dat pic is half cut..how...Any guesses...
A couple of cams, one is ultra wide - LG is not alone anymore..
Asus Zenfone 4- the ultra wide-angle cam covers a 120-degree field of view, just like LG's latest implementation on the V30..

The Mi A1 is an Android One device and will receive updates directly from Google.I would investigate more if I were you.
BQ Aquaris A4.5 is also Android One and just got updated to Android 7.0 Nougat 2 months ago.
You get updates, but they are not faster than everyone else. The Moto X4 will get faster updates than the rest because Motorola is always faster in general than everyone.
