Motorola Moto X4

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.


Design

  • Solid metal unibody design
  • Blue metal design looks great
