Motorola's classy looking X4 handset hides some neat features at a mid-range price point.
- Clean Android
- IP68 water resistance
- Solid metal body
- Dual lenses
- Slow camera
- Huge fingerprint magnet
- Mid-range processor performance
Motorola's X4 punches above its price weight, making it a good option for outright phone buyers who want a premium looking handset.
The Motorola Moto X4 is an odd handset in the Motorola lineup, largely because it sits above the Motorola Moto G5S, but below the Moto Mod-capable Moto Z2 Play handset. It's a narrow pricing niche for the X4 to occupy, but what Motorola's done with this particular handset makes for a compelling option if you're happy with Motorola's general Android approach.
- Solid metal unibody design
- Blue metal design looks great
- Dual lens cameras work well
- Object recognition is OK, but Google Lens is better
- Snapdragon 630 gives it enough power
- Moto actions are practical and fun
- 3,000mAh battery
- Another good Motorola handset, although its newer efforts do eclipse it
