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.

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).

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.
motomoto, 01 Dec 2017the samsung s7 has better screen, but its secondary camera is only 5mp even tho it has a highe... moreSo funny. Probably beat the w4? in other ways... The w4 i'm not sure if exists but beat the X4 in all ways and I bet end better updated too. The Moto brain need more neurons.
I have mine from last friday and its awesome for its price.
had lenovo Vibeshot before from release date for 400 eur now cost 220 brand new. Its still perfectly working but sold it to my friend for his daughter birthday.
Chinese phones just rules like swiss watch.
No need to buy 2-3 times more expensive phones from so called top brands.
Because apart you pay more you get nothing extra worth its price.
motomoto, 01 Dec 2017the samsung s7 has better screen, but its secondary camera is only 5mp even tho it has a highe... moresamsung s7 will get oreo like the moto x...but its the last update for the s7...but it will get security updates tho
zodiacfml, 01 Dec 2017It is difficult to judge your reviews without mentioning the price. In my location, this cost... morethe samsung s7 has better screen, but its secondary camera is only 5mp even tho it has a higher PPI amoled screen.. and probably beats the w4 in other ways... . its not gonna get any android upgrades let alone security updates anymore
It is difficult to judge your reviews without mentioning the price. In my location, this costs the same as a Samsung S7 which trumps this device in many ways except the useless dual rear cameras.
Looks like a generation old. But more than specifications is about how overpriced is. As usual in Motorola.
also check the sar value of the xiaomi phone talked about here its so high u can boil eggs with it.
sar value of moto x4 is reasonably ok ;-)
