Moto G4 Plus now (unofficially) available in the US via Amazon

Moto G4 Plus now (unofficially) available in the US via Amazon
Last month, when announcing its Moto G4 family of smartphones, Motorola said that it would launch all three devices in the US sometime in "mid summer". This means it won't be long before you'll be able to officially buy the Moto G4 Plus, Moto G4, or Moto G4 Play (or, why not, all of them). However, if you just can't wait any longer, you can already purchase the Moto G4 Plus via Amazon.

Right now, the Moto G4 Plus is offered for $339.99, and you can get it in either black, or white. Mind you, this is the Moto G4 Plus with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of (expandable) storage space, and we assume that the $339.99 price is a bit higher than the one that Motorola will ask once it officially releases the phone. Anyhow, the handset is sold unlocked, and will work on GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, but not on CDMA/LTE carriers like Verizon, Sprint, or US Cellular.

Update: There's no need to buy this Moto G4 Plus from Amazon, as Motorola is now officially taking pre-orders for the handset, starting at $249.

If you want to, you can also order the Moto G4 via Amazon (for $279.99). However, this particular model doesn't support US LTE, so it's not worth buying. You'd better just wait for the official release.

While the Moto G4 Plus and G4 are largely the same, the Plus offers some extra features, including a fingerprint scanner, and a superior rear camera (16 MP with laser and phase detection auto focus).

did Lenovo ever consider how the device looked with that big bottom bezel and the on-screen navigation button?

it looks awful.. but its easier to touch on-screen button without streching your thumb too much, because its higher that most smartphone.. but still, it looks awful, especially that square FPscanner :-|

Agreed. The fingerprint scanner, at least on this Moto G⁴, should be on the back, it does look ugly. But the rest of the device is solid, specs aside. Motorola will probably release the G⁴ plus for less than the aforementioned $339 price. @Dazzmichael the bottom bezel isn't too big, if it was, the phone would definitely be taller than 6.02" tall, the exact same height as the Oneplus 3, with its self-proclaimed small bezels. It is 8/100" narrower than this Moto G⁴ plus, at 2.94" wide vs 3.02". Again, I agree about the scanner, but for this phone only. The Z has to have it on the front, because of modularity, which is a very good trade-off. At least this isn't like the HTC A9, with its iPhone clone design and fingerprint scanner on the front. That one doubles as a home button, though, which is stupid because it has an on-screen button too. I wouldn't complain about the scanner shape, because if it were circular, then people would complain about Moto copying apple. If it were oblong, people would complain that Moto copied Samsung. If it were rectangular, people would either complain it looks too much like the ZUK Z1, or people would just bash it. If they put it on the side, people would say they copied Sony. Any way one could possibly put a fingerprint scanner on a phone except for the back would be impossible for the Moto Z, and would not happen with the G line because Moto wants their line of phones to look consistent, or Moto wants to keep the logo, or some retarded reason like that. Inexcusable on the G, and the only way around the first world problem for the Z

That price is garbage. Better get a zenfone 3 or oneplus 3.

I have to agree. I like Moto, but for $374, either buy 1+3 or LG G4 for $278 from .....
