The Moto X4 is commendable for a midrange mobile phone, but it's also conflicted.

The bar set by past Moto X phones was too high

from TechRadar

The Moto X4 makes it clear that the true successor to the Moto X line is the Moto Z line. It's a mid-range phone that is a small upgrade from a Moto G5S Plus that awkwardly sits in the middle of Motorola’s flagship and budget phones.

After a long fall from grace, the Moto brand is struggling to revive itself. But the Moto X4 isn’t the phone to accomplish that goal. While good, it’s not great. While satisfying, it’s not exceptional. The software is adequate, the performance is fine, and the camera is great for quick snappers, but the Moto X4 doesn’t stand out.

GSMArena

Offers enough goodies to lure in customers from outside

Mean machine, that's what the Moto X4 is. Only not in a fierce, tough, and uncompromising way, no - 'mean' more like 'average'. But not 'average' in a bad way, mind you. Quite the contrary, the Moto X4 embraces the X's newfound mid-tier position and delivers just enough not to eat into the Z2 Pl...More

Mean machine, that's what the Moto X4 is. Only not in a fierce, tough, and uncompromising way, no - 'mean' more like 'average'. But not 'average' in a bad way, mind you. Quite the contrary, the Moto X4 embraces the X's newfound mid-tier position and delivers just enough not to eat into the Z2 Play (the Force is obviously way out of reach), yet be a cut above the G-series.

A refined smartphone that clicks

from The Indian Express

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.

Digit

Compact, premium design but slow and overall underwhelming camera

from Digit

The Moto X4 has a good display, just enough battery life and dependable performance. Yet, it's a phone that I would only recommend to compact phone lovers. There are plenty of phones with better cameras and similar performance, that also happen to be cheaper than this device.

Phonedog

Deviates too much from the expressive options the Moto X line

from Phonedog

All things considered, it’s a decent deal. My only real complaint is how slippery it is and how fragile it feels with glass on both sides, but if you’re normally one to put a case on your phone anyway (or if you simply like that type of design) it’s a non-issue.

Offers quite similar specs to the Moto G5s Plus on paper

from Recombu

Motorola’s X series smartphones are back, with enough of a bang to make us glad for their return. While the Moto G5s and G5s Plus offer strong value for money, the Moto X4 delivers plenty of worthy extras - including full water resistance and some useful software features - to make an upgrade worth considering.

In a tough spot

from Pocket-lint

There was a time when the Moto X was the business. In the here and now, however, the Moto X4 simply doesn't live up to its predecessors' high-ranking abilities. For times have changed and, as it stands, the X4 is outshone by the not-much-pricier OnePlus 5 to a considerable degree.

TrustedReviews

A stylish and, capable mid-range smartphone

from TrustedReviews

The Moto X4 is a compact, stylish handset at a price that’s temptingly short of the current flagship crop. However, there are several rough edges that have us questioning its position in Motorola’s increasingly crowded range.
