Motorola Moto G4 Plus vs Moto G4 vs Moto G (2015) specs comparison

Motorola Moto G4 Plus vs Moto G4 vs Moto G (2015) specs comparison
So, Motorola just unveiled the fourth generation of its Moto G lineup. This year, we are actually treated to not just one but two slightly different flavors of one and the same device. Apart from the Moto G4, the Moto G4 Plus was also introduced. 

No, there is no significant difference in the design and the size of the two hot new Motorola devices, but we can't say the same for their specs sheets. As one would naturally deduce, the G4 Plus is the more advanced device among the two — it ups the ante with a fingerprint reader and a superior camera on board. 

But is this actually it? And more importantly, how are Motorola's newest devices stacking up against the Moto G (2015)? Suffice to say we were curious to find out, and we think you are also eager to find the differences. That's why we made a quick three-way comparison between said handsets. Here goes:
