Motorola Moto X4 Review

This year's Moto X4 is a mid-range handset with premium looks – one that just barely eclipses the G series’ spec sheet, but stands out with its fancy construction, dual-camera setup, and IP68 water resistance...

I am writing this review after using the phone for 3 months. Specifications and everything is great camera is little slow which is okay. The main thing is if you talk more than 20 min in phone your head starts to hurt and your ears too. After 30 minutes you just cannot talk keeping your phone to your ear because of the extreme pain. I think this is due to radiation effect I think this is a very big problem

I miss my Moto X4 that I returned for the OnePlus 5t. The display was just pure bliss for my eyes. I think everyday of reselling the OP5t to go back...

Hi Phonearena, I'm using this phone and the "show me" function of Moto Voice is not really redundant in the sense that I can directly open an app. Show Me Instagram will instantly open the app. If I use GA, I have to say "Ok Google" and wait for google to beep and then say "Open Instagram". I think it is a value-adding to my overall experience.

I've been using this phone for 2 weeks now. I don't agree with the con "Having 3 voice assistants is redundant". If you were USING 3 voice assistants then it would be redundant, but they all don't have to be turned on. Neither do I agree with "Could use more on-board storage" because 1) There is a Micro-SD card slot, and 2) 32GB can be enough for some users. That is like ordering medium-spice chicken wings and saying "could be spicier" get what you buy.

So.. The screen/body ratio below 71% is only a con if it is against Sony or HTC. Motorola and Apple are forgiven.

It's less than half the price of an iPhone 8. If you buy it from Amazon then you can buy 3 of them. Yet it has a larger full HD display. Compared to the iPhone 8 lower resolution display that has half the pixels (only HD). It even has the same LTE speed as the iPhone 8. It even has a wide angle camera. Something that most flagship are missing except LG flagships. When you get Android One it's garanteed to get the latest updates at a speedy rate. Why anyone would buy an iPhone SE over this Moto X4 is beyond me. Even when you compare the iPhone 8 this Moto X4 is offering a lot of features for a fraction of the iPhone 8 price.
