Motorola Moto X4 at a glance

When does the Moto X4 come out? Available from October 2017
What’s new about the Moto X4? Metal body, dual cameras, water resistance
How much does the Moto X4 cost? Originally $699 outright

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
