The good

  • Good performance
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Dual SIM
  • Quick camera
  • Great battery life

The bad

  • Very plain design
  • Fingerprint reader isn’t the home button
  • Big and slippy
  • Sealed battery

Motorola’s Moto G4 Plus offers large size and equally large value for its asking price.

In the Android smartphone world almost everyone has a play in the premium space, even though as a nation we tend to buy only Samsung or Apple smartphones if we’re after a premium device. Recently, Motorola’s pitch has been to leave the premium bloodbath alone and instead focus on mid-range and value segments. That’s solidly where the Motorola Moto G4 Plus sits, with either 16GB or 32GB versions available for $399 and $449 outright.

Design

  • Dual SIM support is nice
  • Slippery body can make it hard to hold at times

Camera

  • Has no trouble delivering quality photos superior to many phones at its price point

Performance

  • Good mid-range performance that should handle most tasks without issue

Battery life

  • Should have no trouble getting most users through the day on a single charge
  • No removable battery, sadly

Verdict

  • A good choice for budget-conscious buyers wanting a large handset
