Reviews for the Motorola Moto X4

Moto X4 Review: Hands-On
Source: Ubergizmo English English
The Moto X4 delivers an impressive built-quality packaged in a stylish and IP68 rugged design, all that for quite a good price. On the features side, the key highlight is the dual-camera with a secondary 8 mega-pixel wide angle (120 degrees) camera, which is great to shoot landscapes while travelling or perform nice Bokeh effect.

Motorola Moto X4 Quick Review: Gorgeous Dual-cam Mid-ranger
Source: Unbox English
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.

Hands-on: Moto X4 review
Source: PC Advisor English
We’re looking forward to spending more time with the X4 to offer our full verdict, but our overall first impressions are certainly positive and we think this could be a popular option for smartphone buyers that aren’t happy with the budget offerings available but can’t reach the hefty price tags of the current flagships.

Moto X4 First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
On the software side, Moto is boasting of Alexa integration in addition to Google Assistant. There are also a few added conveniences such as the ability to take a screenshot by tapping the screen with three fingers rather than fiddling with the side buttons, and an integrated password manager.

Motorola Moto X4 hands-on review

That’s all in theory, of course - I’ll have to wait until a full review to see if the Moto X can return as a mid-range champ, or if it’s more of a mid-range chump.

Motorola Moto X4 hands-on
Source: Trusted Reviews English
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.

Moto X4 has dual cameras, Amazon Alexa and extra smarts
Source: CNet English
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.

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.  

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

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.
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
