6 things that could have made the new Moto G4 downright irresistible

6 things that could have made the new Moto G4 downright irresistible
While the new Moto G4 looks like a very competent smartphone that delivers a hefty bag of tricks for the buck, it's still a device that visibly has its roots in a budget series. It's understandable that Motorola had to cut some corners in order to achieve a ratio of features and price that's attractive to both the company and its customers. And honestly, Motorola could have done much worse. The Moto G4 does not appear 'crippled' in any way or form. But it could have benefited from a little more pocket stretching so some of its power and functionality could reach farther.

We thought of six things that could have turned the new Moto G4 from a banger of a deal to downright insanely good value. Do you agree with them, and is there something you would have loved to see Motorola bring to its new budget handset? Scroll through the slideshow and tell us in the comments below!

they forgot something more important here: - stereo front facing speaker - 5inch screen size for non-plus - 4000mAh battery

These things would have made it impossible to satisfy?

A smaller screen would have been nice as well.

I laughed reading #2. How many times did tech blogs and commenters rake Motorola over the coals when they used a pattern on the back? Especially on the Droid series. So they don't use a pattern, and they complain about that too.

yeah right, while they never care if other phone never use pattern at all, lol... btw, G4 and G4 is available via motomaker, and pattern (or not) wont be a problem

I don't understand why phonearena insists on comparing these phones to flagships. The G series is mid-range, it should be reviewed as such and compared to other midrangers. Adding all those things would have driven the costs up. As for the back, you can use moto maker so again it seems like a non issue.

Cost a little extra but snapdragon 650 will be nice

S800 would be top notch.

S800 is old and throttles a lot . Thermal efficiency is much better on the s801

"Phones shouldn't even come with 1gb ram anymore in 2016" Budget phone reveals 2gb. "Phone should have 3gb" Spec junkies will never be satisfied. Always want more for the same price.
