Moto X4 6GB RAM review: High on performance but…
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Motorola Moto X4 is clearly an upgrade over the older variant. The performance boost is welcome but camera and battery life leave room for improvement. One of the things that work in favour of Moto X4 is the price tag. There’s barely any phone worth recommending between Rs 20,000-Rs 25,000, leaving Moto X4 the only better alternative. If you aren’t keen on spending a couple of thousands, you may still consider the 4GB variant of Moto X4.

Moto X4 (6GB RAM) Review
Source: Fone Arena English
Overall, the Moto X4 with 6GB RAM is a good addition to the Moto X4 series at Rs. 24,999. Still the company sticks to 64GB storage instead of moving to 128GB storage. Hope we get to see at 6GB + 128GB combination in the next-generation Moto X phone later this year.

Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Moto X4 6GB edition performs just as solidly as the 4GB version, and Android Oreo adds some nice polish to an already smooth UI. However, we’re not entirely convinced by the premium that Lenovo is charging for just a little more RAM. Ideally, we would have liked a storage bump as well, and that would have made this offering hard to beat at its current price. Android Oreo is a worthy addition but this is something that will be rolling out to the 3GB and 4GB variants too. Oppo offers the 6GB RAM version of the Oppo F5 (Review) at Rs. 24,990, which is a good pick if you’re looking for better cameras and a wider display.

But do note that these features will be a standard across all Moto phones this year and especially the upcoming Moto G6 that is slated to launch at MWC 2018, which will be much cheaper than the Rs 24,999 price tag the Moto X4 (6GB) carries.

The mid-range is increasingly competitive, and though it’s sharply priced at $599, there is a bit of competition around that price-point which makes the Moto X4 a bit hard to declare a clear must-buy. It is worth noting, though, that it’s one of exceptionally few devices (perhaps as few as two) that come with IP68 water resistance at this price point.

The Moto X4 is a solid Motorola offering thanks to its nice display, premium build with water and dust resistance, dual-rear cameras, and above average battery life. The stock Android experience with promised Android Oreo update is also a big plus. It doesn’t offer anything new in terms of design but it’s still a pretty device overall.

Motorola’s traditionally done a pretty good job of giving us fun, unique devices – even as they’ve transitioned to new ownership under Google, and subsequently Lenovo. The Moto X4 is no exception. It may lack a 18:9 display or a “bezel-less” design, but this feels less significant on the Moto X4 – not just because it’s an affordable mid-range phone, but also because its Moto styling gives it character of its own. At the end of the day, what we have here is a phone that won't break any performance benchmark records, yet stands out with its solid build quality, cool appearance, decent camera, and water-resistant construction. At the price points the Moto X4 can be currently bought, we’re hard-pressed to find many devices we like more.

Motorola’s Moto X4 is a great little mid-range device, and while we were a little put off by its camera performance, it has more than enough pro’s to counter its cons.

Moto X4 is a brilliant device in terms of looks and build quality. It also offers great software experience in the form of Moto app and has a good overall performance with Snapdragon 630 chipset. It also comes with IP68 which is an added feature. The only area where Moto X4 needs an improvement is the camera unit, while it is not entirely bad, it is inconsistent. Priced at Rs 20,999 for base variant and Rs 22,999 for the 4GB RAM variant, the Moto X4 is a great device if looks matter to you.

Source: Tech2 English
Moto X4 is another impressive device by Lenovo that offers great near-stock Android software experience along with optimised battery performance. The device could handle anything that I threw at it. However, the primary highlight of the device is how premium and classy it looks without compromising on the performance front. The device does need some polishing when it comes to the camera department, but that is similar to previous Moto devices. Moto has priced the lower variant of the X4 at Rs 20,999 and the high-end variant is priced at Rs 22,999.

70% Moto X4 review: The 'can do better' phone
Source: Gadget Show English
The Moto X4 is a phone that won't have you complaining over anything except maybe the camera. However, the albatross around its neck is the price. In and around the Rs 20,000 price bracket, competition is really intense with brands offering something unique. With Moto X4, you get what you expect from a Motorola device - reliability and strong performance. It does lack the X factor - a feature that could have made into a must-buy. For instance, the Oppo F5 can stake a claim for the best selfie camera around. Moto X4 has all the right specifications, looks good, delivers sound performance - even though the camera could've been better - and wouldn't disappoint you. Moto X4 joins the long list of Motorola devices which will gain its steady set of followers over time. Because as we have learnt that's something most Motorola smartphones have managed to do and the Moto X4 will definitely follow suit.

And since Motos don't live in isolation, the X4 offers enough goodies to lure in customers from outside. No one other than LG puts an ultra-wide angle cam on a phone, and affordable as the G6 may be, the X4 can still be had for less. In the midrange, the X4 has one of the best chipsets all-round, a display that makes no excuses, and battery life that won't leave you stranded mid-day. Add some functional software, weather sealing and a design with just the right amount of flair and you have one hell of a case for 'average'.

Moto X4 is impressive for a mid-range device. The phone excels on many fronts, be it on looks, performance, IP68 water-resistance and battery. Although the camera may not be comparable to the competition, it still works for me. And thanks to its clean stock Android interface, Moto X4 has won another brownie point. For Rs 22,999 (4GB RAM + 64GB storage), it’s a good option for those looking for a phone that’s affordable and perform far better than other devices in its class.

We’re quite happy with what Lenovo has done with the Moto X4. It looks and feels great, and has plenty of useful features such as the Moto suite of gestures, and proper waterproofing. Between this and the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) (Review), we’d recommend the Moto X4 as it does have a slightly better camera, even though the X4's camera itself isn't great. The main sensor isn’t that bad and the wide-angle lens has its uses, but the sluggish HDR, slow focus speeds in video and ineffective bokeh mode left us wanting more.

Motorola took the wraps off of their new mid-range, dual-camera smartphone here in IFA, Berlin yesterday. The Moto X4 is the second dual-camera offering of the brand, with the first being the high-end Moto Z2 Force announced in the US a few months ago. Despite Motorola’s focus on their MotoMod system of modular accessories, the Moto X4 doesn’t utilize that particular eco-system, which meant the company had a free hand in making the device look quite different compared to its older brothers.

Although the X4 doesn’t sit neatly in Motorola’s established E, G, Z smartphone lines, it feels like a decent mid-range handset. Outside of some bugs with its pre-release camera app, I struggled to find any significant shortcomings with the phone; its lack of support for Moto Mods, maybe – although, being honest, I’ve never been completely sold on these so can’t see the omission being a real sticking point for the majority of buyers. Hopefully, the X4’ll make good on its opening promise when it’s released in September.

The Moto X4 will be available in Europe in September for 399 euros. That would put it at about $475 in the US, which is a bit less than what's you'll pay for the Moto Z2 Play. We don't have US pricing or availability information yet, but the phone is expected to launch in the fall. Check back then for a full review.

Hands on: Moto X4 review

The Moto X4 doesn't pack anything particularly innovative, but it includes a few extras like Amazon Alexa and a dual-lens camera that may make it stand out from other mid-range phones.

This Moto X4 is the eighth new phone that Motorola's announced this year, including the premium Moto Z2 Force with its snap-on Mods, and the budget G5 Plus, which was good enough to win CNET's Editor's Choice award.

Motorola Moto X4 hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
Overall, it's not exactly a boardroom-friendly device, so all in good taste, we guess. Besides the misplaced microphone, there is not much else to complain about on the front of the device. In fact, the 5.2-inch, 1080p display looks really sharp at 424ppi. AMOLED would have been a nice touch, but an IPS LCD still fits the mid-ranger bill perfectly.

The Moto X is back and it means business. But it's still not averse to stiff competition, such as the slightly pricier but more powerful OnePlus 5.

Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

In 2011, Motorola Mobility was founded as the result form the split of its main company, Motorola. Motorola Mobility was sold by Google to Lenovo – a Chinese originated company – in 2014. The first Android smartphone by Motorola was launched in 2009 followed by their first Android tablet in 2011. In November 2017, Motorola launched its latest smartphone known as Moto X4, a refreshingly simple, smart and secure smartphone. The Moto X4 meets the best in class Google experience. It is available in Super Black and Sterling Blue color. The phone is a single SIM smartphone which does not accept Nano-SIM. The Moto X4 is IP68 water resistant, which can protect the phone from any accidental splashes, spills or puddles. The phone made from precision-crafted glass and metal is easy to hold and easy on the eyes with a beautiful contoured design. The smartphone is equipped with Android 7.1 Nougat. It has a weight of 163 grams and a size of 148.35 x 73.40 x 7.00 mm. The camera bump gives the phone a little extra thickness of 9.45 mm, which is something that many are not too keen on. Nevertheless, this is something that is already common in the smartphone industry with major players like Apple and Huawei doing it. The phone features 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. If this is not enough, the storage can be expanded via microSD card. It is powered by a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, a good processor matching the goodness of its style.

The Moto X4 comes with 5.2-inch touchscreen display a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and a pixel density of 424 PPI, a fingerprint reader (front-mounted), a compass, a proximity sensor, and an accelerometer. The dual camera solution on the rear side consisting of a 12 MP sensor and an 8 MP sensor with autofocus and dual-tone flash shoots  best photos in wide angle and low light detection. The 16 MP front camera for selfies features its own flash. Other features of Moto X4, are face detection, geo-tagging, panorama, and auto-HDR. The video can be recorded in 2160p and 1080p resolution. This phone includes Moto Actions gesture, which can launch the camera and lets the user set the lock screen. The phone comes with the following sensors: gyroscope, ambient light sensor, accelerometer, proximity sensor, and compass magnetometer. The smartphone uses MP3 and WAV ringtones as the alert types. It has a  front-ported speaker and a 3.5 mm jack, and its dedicated microphone features noise cancellation. The non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery supports fast charging (15W). The Moto X4 can last a workday without a charge. It comes with the latest software features, which can save the battery, and the TurboPower ultra-fast charging can get up to 6 hours within 15 minutes. It is, granted, a long-lasting and stylish smartphone that everyone ought to get as their daily driver.

Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The Motorola Moto X4 is a mid-range smartphone that has a lot going for it considering its price tag. It has a dual-lens camera, a glass design, waterproofing, Alexa and the ability to stream to four Bluetooth speakers at once. The design is far more attractive than the Moto Z2 Play, which felt a little sharp and awkward to hold, especially with Moto Mod attachments. The X4 has a mixed metal and glass design that looks swish by comparison. The 3D Gorilla Glass front and rear and contoured sides make it noticeably more comfortable to hold. Although the platinum model was an outright smudge magnet, it felt suitably rugged. The IP68 water-resistance rating also means that it will survive accidental aquatic encounters unscathed. The X4’s 5.2-inch screen is Full HD, which means a resolution of 1.080 x 1.920 pixels. The screen is bright, colorful and reasonably crisp. It’s not going to live up to the standards of flagships from the likes of Samsung and LG, and its bezels prevent it from being as immersive as an edge-to-edge would. Tut for the price, it is a good offering. Inside the X4 is Qualcomm’s mid-range processor offering, the Snapdragon 630, paired with 3 GB of RAM. The user will get 32 GB internal storage. There’s support for a microSD card up to 2 TB. The battery is a non-removable 3,000 mAh model, which Moto describes as being capable of providing power “all day.” It charges via USB-C, with TurboPower, which means six hours of power is achievable with just 15 minutes of charging time.

One of the Moto X4’s key features is its camera. With dual lenses, a user will be able to capture higher quality images and add depth effects. Those lenses feature 12 MP and 8 MP resolution. The Dual Autofocus Pixel technology helps to keep things sharp. There’s also a 16 MP front-facing camera for selfies, which offers an adaptive low light mode as well as a Panoramic Selfie feature to capture bigger groups or the environment behind. The Moto X4 runs Android 7.1 Nougat. A user will also get Motorola’s Moto Experiences, which include Moto Display and Moto Actions. Moto Key means the user can access password-secured websites using their fingerprint rather than having to type a password every time. Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant allows hand-free use. It has been uses by Motorola for the first time. The Google Assistant is still available. Hence, users can take their pick. Additional features include a fingerprint sensor built into the home button, as well as NFC and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. The Moto X4 has the ability to pair with up to four Bluetooth speakers at once, which means a user will be able to place even the most mismatched speakers around a room and stream music to all of them simultaneously. It also allows volume control for each speaker individually.

Qualcomm Adreno 508: Integrated graphics card in the Snapdragon 630 SoC based on the Adreno 500 architecture. According to Qualcomm "up to 30% faster graphics rendering than previous designs".  Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
630: Mid-range octa-core SoC with eight ARM Cortex-A53 cpu cores at up to 2.2 GHz, an Adreno 508 GPU, a LPDDR4-2666 memory controller and a X12 LTE (Cat 13/12, 300 / 150 MBit) modem. Manufactured in the modern 14nm process. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
5.2":

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.
78.41%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
