Reviews for the Motorola Moto G04

77.7% Motorola Moto G04 smartphone review – A well-equipped phone for very little money | Notebookcheck
The Moto G04 is a very affordable smartphone for those who simply want to be reachable on the go, are looking for a second phone or have to watch every penny when spending money. You can't expect a lot of features for around US$130, but perhaps Motorola has an ace up its sleeve?
79% Motorola Moto G04 review: entry-level convenience
Source: Gadgetguy English
Motorola’s Moto G04 is a well-priced handset for those who know exactly what they want in a phone. Its fingerprint sensor and NFC technology work as intended, making it easy to pay while out and about. In the case of the Moto G04, budget doesn’t mean boring, either. It’s a nice-looking phone that comes in various vibrant colours and a stylish design that belies its affordable status. This is ultimately a device aimed at first-time users and older generations who just need the basics.

93% Motorola’s £89 Moto G04 is the new champion of ultra-cheap phones
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Moto G04 is available from the Motorola site for £89/€129 as well as Amazon and Currys, but it doesn’t seem to be heading to the USA. At this price, there aren’t too many rivals that can compete. There’s the Nokia C32, which does have a similar spec sheet, albeit with a larger pixel count on its 50Mp main camera. Another option, with a name close to that of the Nokia, is the Realme C35, which you can pick up for around £150 and comes with a Full HD display and a decent main camera. Motorola also has its own alternatives, including the Moto G13 that offers additional cameras for around £129, but I think the G04 is the better device overall.

75% Moto G04 review: covers the essentials
Source: 91mobiles English
The Moto G04 presents a compelling option for its asking price, offering a near-stock Android experience and an acceptable performance for regular day-to-day tasks. Additionally, the handset boasts a clean design, offers a comfortable grip, and is IP52-certified against minor water splashes. While the camera quality is adequate, it may not satisfy photography enthusiasts. If that’s your priority, the itel A70 is worth checking out. Its 13MP AI camera captures slightly better images with vibrant colours (although boosted), and better dynamic range than its counterpart. However, the A70’s performance might be somewhat restrictive given it only comes with 4GB RAM. The Motorola smartphone is equipped with 6GB and 8GB RAM options. This should make the Moto G04 a solid choice for those seeking affordability without compromising essential features.

75% Moto G04 review: Best affordable Android phone?
Source: India Today English
So, the question remains: Should you buy the Moto G04? Absolutely. If you're seeking an entry-level, low-budget phone for your kids, grandparents, or even just as a secondary phone for basic everyday use, then the Moto G04 is a solid choice. It is one of the most budget-friendly phones currently available in the market, offering good design, decent performance, a decent camera, and great battery life. In short, it delivers most of what we expect from a phone in this price range. However, if you are seeking an entry-level phone with a better camera and future OS upgrades to ensure the phone remains up-to-date for another 1 or 2 years, then you can look at options like Realme Narzo N53 and Poco C55, both of which are priced around Rs 8,000.

Motorola Moto G04 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Motorola Moto G04 smartphone has become a hit after its launch, especially in India, thanks to some good features and hardware inside that is never found in this price range. It brings a great display with a decent refresh rate, chipset, and outstanding battery life. These features and performance set it a class apart from all the other smartphones in the same price category. The camera or the chipset could have been better but at this price, there’s hardly anything to complain about. The Indian price of the smartphone is even cheaper than its European launch and that’s one of the reasons why it is becoming such a delight among budget users in India. On top of that, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack and support for expandable storage. All these features also compensate for the lack of 5G connectivity, which would have certainly increased the cost of the smartphone.

6.56":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

Motorola: Founded in 1928, the US-based company mainly focuses on communication technology such as smartphones. The original company Motorola Inc was split up in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone division and was taken over by Google in 2012 and Lenovo in 2014.

The company is known for its cell phones and other electronic devices such as smartwatches, tablets and accessories. Motorola was one of the first companies to produce cell phones, and in recent years has also innovated in the areas of 5G technology and modular smartphones (Moto Mods). Motorola is also active in public safety and professional communications, providing solutions for government agencies, businesses and other organizations. The company has operations in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America and employs more than 10,000 people worldwide. 


78.52%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
