Moto X4 Overview
The Moto X4 is Motorola’s moderate, mid-run smartphone that fits somewhere in the middle of the flagship Moto Z2 Force and the affordable budget level smartphone Moto G5.
Motorola Moto X4 has acquires the advanced features from the both smartphone series, such as water resistance, dual-lens camera, fingerprint sensor and a considerable measure of a similar features.
There is something different special thing you have to know about the Moto X: it’s the very first non-Google Android smartphone in the Western world, and it’s qualified for Google’s Project Fi mobile network.
The Moto X4 Android One model has Google Play Protest’s built-in feature, with every month security updates and, more significantly, two years of OS upgrade. You’ll see it so get Android P and Android Q before other smartphones.
Other than those advanced features of Android One model, most of the released versions are almost similar with slight different in features.
Any of the Moto X4 versions has serious competitors like OnePlus 5 at a slight high in cost and even Motorola’s own smartphone lineup.
The Moto Z2 Play, for example, will get benefits by use of MotoMods and the cost is not really any difference.
Moto X4 Price and release date
The Moto X4 launched in October 26 in the USA and it costs $399 (about £370, AU$529) for basic level 32GB smartphone. Where Moto X4 launched in November 15 in India. Where this Moto X4 is made available exclusively in Amazon.
Do take note of that there’s an Android One/Google Fi variant of this smartphone and another one sold by Motorola, with the latest configuration boasting a advanced software features, which effects the hardware (Moto Display, Moto Voice and special fingerprint sensor).
Moto X4 Design Review
Motorola is touting the Moto X4 as a way that designed with octa-core without compromising the style, and that is just valid, if you love Motorola’s smartphone design and can’t afford any other octa core smartphone, out in the market like Note 8, Galaxy S8 or very close in cost OnePlus 5.
It follows current Motorola design practices: smooth bends at the bottom and top, an oval shaped finger print scanner at the base of the screen and a larger back camera knock adjusted in the top-center of the smartphone.
The power and volume button are all on the right side and it feel strong. There’s no speaker grille on the base, as the sole speaker is at the top of the smartphone, serving as the earpiece for smartphone calls.
It’s a not too bad looking smartphone, yet like numerous mid-range smartphones, we’re surely not telling our friends that how it looks.
After observing the smartphone design found that Moto X4 has compromised with the design and style, but in any case, this Moto X4 has 3.5mm headphone jack.
Moto X4 feels strong and smooth in the hand, thanks of its glass back and metal edge, however the glass have a chance of be broken if it fells downs.
The metal casing doesn’t have any such protection to rescue form the damage, when it lands on the ground.
But atleast we have water resistant protection and dust protection, with an IP68 rating that implies, Moto X4 can withstand up to 30minutes with depth of 1 meter.
The sad part of this smartphone is that boring design in the 2017.
Moto X4 Display Review
The Moto X4 has a 5.2-inch Full HD display which fits its mid-range personality more than the flagship Moto Z2 Force.
Where it has high pixel density display, but expect VR.
Now a days many of the smartphone companies decide to migrate to OLED Display, including the similarly ranged Moto Z2 Play, but can’t believe that why Motorola has used the IPS display, which lacks the pure blacks of OLED.
The non-Android One version of the X4 has similar display like Moto Display feature, where it lights up the screen with the time, date and notification icons in black and white.
Where the Android one version of the X4 has the same feature.
Moto Display gives you a chance to interface with notifications, so you would quick be able to answer to instant messages with your voice, or pause and play music, all while never having to completely unlocking the smartphone.
This year many big company launched their product at once, where you can compare the smartphone of Apple iPhone 8 vs Google Pixel 2 after comparing these two phones of different OS, and another series of the same kind that you can compare is Google Pixel 2 XL vs Apple iPhone 8 Plus.
Apart from this where you know that the iPhone X is 43% More Cheaper to Buy in USA than in India, so if you anyone knowing in USA, better Buy with them.
