Was previously using a Samsung S5, and was expecting more from the Moto G4 after reading reviews.
The phone is not truly a 5.5 inch screen, as the bottom contains live menu keys. The viewable screen is only 5.2 inch, unless watching a movie. I don't understand why the designers didn't utilise the empty space at the foot of the phone. In effect, it takes away from the phone's look and functionality.
You then have to accept that they have chosen to place the back key in the left hand side, but these are not customisable. What was the point of putting the menu keys on the LCD?
The phone is top heavy, and you get very little grip from the back cover. I'm constantly trying to balance the phone and not drop it.
The lack of standard apps is dreadful. No gallery, no pics editor, no music player. No link in camera to go straight to edit.
Audio port on top and USB port at the bottom. Same as the S5, but at least Samsung had good reason... an actual home key.
- Bright screen
- Decent camera
- Quick startup
- Android 7.0
- Smaller than advertised screen
- Lack of menu keys
- Top heavy & uncomfortable
- Lacking basic apps
- Nice succcessor to my Moto G2, but kinda unwieldy on account of the size.Positives
- Decent rear camera.
- Great sound through front speaker and headphones.
- Great image.
- Too big for single-handed use.
- Keeps rebooting, ejecting SD card.
- Fuzzy selfies after update.
- AutoThe phone held me for almost 3 years, the problem was the screen defect
The phone lasted almost 3 years, the only drawback was the screen, it came with the defect of "screen burn", the screen "burned" after using it, I had to install a color filter, which although it did not affect the normal use, it did affect when I played. What I now miss from Motorola are some movement gestures (camera and flashlight activation) and on-screen notifications). I also miss some functionality of Android stock, such as being able to install applications and games directly on the microSD. What I do not miss at all is, apart from the screen, the poor updates from Motorola, if I received 3 they were many in all that time, not to mention the mockery when they promised Android 8.Positives
- Network and WIFI signal reception
- On-screen notifications
- Movement gestures
- Storage manager
- Defective display
- Poor update support
- Battery performance

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:
- Design and screen
- Hardware and performance
Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.
Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.
The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
