Motorola's classy looking X4 handset hides some neat features at a mid-range price point.

The good

  • Clean Android
  • IP68 water resistance
  • Solid metal body
  • Dual lenses

The bad

  • 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

Battery life

  • 3,000mAh battery


  • Another good Motorola handset, although its newer efforts do eclipse it
