Simple smartphone with good battery life

from AndroidPIT

The Moto G4 Play was designed to be a simple, cheap phone. If you want something inexpensive for normal daily use, it gets the job done. It's splash-resistant, with a long-lasting removable battery, and it's dual SIM. But it also has its drawbacks, like the mono speaker and the lack of fingerprin... More

A great entry level smartphone

from TechSpot

The Moto G4 Play may come packing largely the same collection of hardware as its year old predecessor, however the phone’s new $150 price tag blows away the competition in the same fashion as previous Moto G devices

Not a good idea to get roped into this phone's games

from Reviewed

The only people I'd feel comfortable recommending the Moto G4 Play to are easy-to-please bargain-hunters who couldn't care less about their phone's camera, who don't do much mobile gaming, and who aren't frustrated by slower-than-average performance.

The only people I'd feel comfortable recommending the Moto G4 Play to are easy-to-please bargain-hunters who couldn't care less about their phone's camera, who don't do much mobile gaming, and who aren't frustrated by slower-than-average performance. Alternatively, if you want a cheap phone to use with a pay-as-you-go SIM card, the G4 Play is a decent option.

The Moto G4 Play impresses me almost as much as when the original Moto G came out years ago. For $150, you can grab a customizable phone directly from Motorola’s website that offers a crisp 5 inch 720p screen, a front facing speaker that gets fairly loud, speedy performance that almost matches flagship devices, incredible day-and-a-half to two-day battery life, and a solid build. The phone’s cameras are lackluster if you compare pics with other phones, but in daylight it’ll get the job done just fine. There’s also no quick charging, but the large battery makes up for this.

Motorola delivers a middle-class smartphone in the Moto G, with impressive, special features." This sentence was the verdict of the Moto G of the 3rd generation. We can apply it directly to the Moto G4. The test model combines good hardware and solid performance, without any glaring flaws. In comparison to the predecessor, the Moto G4 has a faster SoC, more storage space, a similar display but lower price. If you want a cheap, yet good smartphone, we recommend paying 159 Euros (~$174) for the Moto G4 Play.

Cheap and capable

from Brighthand

Motorola continues its trend of producing reliable budget phones with the Moto G4 Play, a device perfectly capable of getting basic tasks done, even if it’s not terribly impressive otherwise.

There's a lot to like in the Moto G4 Play

from PhoneArena

The Moto G4 Play may not be a particularly flashy smartphone, but it's got a nice, clean Android interface, it's capable enough for browsing the web and keeping up on your social media, and it's got some pretty commendable battery life.

Fine phone, but not the most fun or functional phone

from Phone Scoop

In the past, I've recommended Motorola's G series handsets above most phones others in their price range. They typically represented a strong value-for-the-dollar that was unmatched by competing phones. The G4 Play doesn't live up to previous G series' heritage.

It’s well worth the asking price.

Perhaps a better way to explain the Moto G4 Play is to call it an overachieving mediocre phone. I know, it makes no sense, but when you look at its benchmarks, the scores are really low. Yet, daily use doesn’t suffer in the same manner the HTC Desire 530 did, which scored just below the G4... More

Perhaps a better way to explain the Moto G4 Play is to call it an overachieving mediocre phone. I know, it makes no sense, but when you look at its benchmarks, the scores are really low. Yet, daily use doesn’t suffer in the same manner the HTC Desire 530 did, which scored just below the G4 Play. I didn’t recommend the Desire 530, however I have no problem recommending the Moto G4 Play to those who are looking for an unlocked phone on tight budget.

It's tagline should read 'Good Enough'

The Moto G4 Play will get the job done, so long as its duties are limited to light computing and the occasional gaming session.
