Description

The Motorola Moto G4 Play is the most affordable smartphone in the new Moto G4 series. It is also the weakest, however, with a slower processor, a smaller screen, and a less capable camera. It is also missing features like Moto Maker customization and a fingerprint scanner. Still, a near-stock Android 6.0 build help with keeping things running smoothly.
